17 Clue Puzzle collection

Postby Pupp » Fri Jul 10, 2020 8:08 pm

You can easily find on the internet that there are at least 50,000 "17 Clue" sudoku problems, and I'm sure there are more than that now. But does anybody know if there's a website where you can download the minimum clue sudokus problems?

*.sdm format would be preferred.

I previously posted a link here:
http://forum.enjoysudoku.com/scan-solution-grids-for-17-clues-as-of-blue-t34012-75.html#p278811
Download 17puz49157.zip, unzip and rename file from .txt to .sdm.
About 10 or so posts later, #49158 was posted.

How do you use the text files? just rename *.txt to *.sdm? I"m having issues with importing puzzles into my favorite sudoku app, which is actually on my android phone. I emailed the devs, but it's the weekend right now.

What issues? What app?
The .sdm file simply contains sudoku puzzles, one puzzle per line.
In the .txt file a dot (.) represents an empty cell, others may use zero (0) or something else.
The .txt file is 4mb in size, the app may have file size import limit.
Converting the dots to zeros, and splitting the .txt file into smaller .sdms may work!

10,000 Sudoku Plus is the app I use. (Android Phone).

The devs are usually pretty good at fixing issues, but like I said, it's the weekend. lol.
