That capability has been available for at least a couple of years on this webpage. For example, here's one with the initials C and M for ChessMaster:

Code: Select all
 . . . 8 4 3 . . .
 . . 7 . . . 1 . .
 . 9 . . . . . 8 .
 8 . . . . . . . 2
 5 . . . . . 3 . .
 9 . . . . 2 8 . .
 . 1 . . 3 . 4 6 8
 . . 2 . . . . 7 .
 . . . 4 . . 5 . .


Most puzzles it makes are easy.


The free charactor based generator here uses 'masks' which you can edit. You are more likely to be able to create a harder puzzle with this.
