Game 315 produced 11,692 + 1278 = 13,970 puzzles sufficiently hard to be included in Champagne's hardest database.
1278 puzzles occupy a sub-pattern.
The 11+ puzzles are (puzzle, skfr-rating, serate-rating)
Code: Select all
1...2.3....41....5.6...7.1..4..8.1..2..5....3..6....9.4..6..8....7..3....5..4...9 ED=11.0/11.0/10.5 ED=11.2/11.2/10.6

It is very rare to find a minimal x-sudoku using Patterns Game patterns, but here is one:
Code: Select all
 . 9 . . . . . . 3
 2 . . . . 4 . . .
 . . . . 1 . 8 . .
 . . . 5 . . . 3 .

 . 3 . . . 8 . . .
 . . 5 . 3 . . . .
 . . . 2 . . . . 6
 7 . . . . . . 5 .   X-sudoku, pattern 321, not minimal, fairly easy

 . 9 . . . . . . 4
 7 . . . . 8 . . .
 . . . . 5 . 1 . .
 . . . 6 . . . 8 .
 . . 7 . 3 . 9 . .

This is a more submission for game 309 here: http://forum.enjoysudoku.com/patterns-game-t6290-36525.html#p265448, so goes back quite a few months, SE rates it ED=6.6/1.2/1.2. So I'm thinking that g.r.emlin does not validate more submissions! Found during the spare moments between games! I took all the submissions from games 301 to 320 inclusive to test various rating programs!!

This is a "more" submission for game 309

SE rates it ED=6.6/1.2/1.2

So I'm thinking that g.r.emlin does not validate "more" submissions!

I think that I have a worse example on a more done by me, I'll post it later. I have to catch it back and to check when it has been posted

I could track it quickly.

This happened in the game 258 (September 2015) in the following lot of "more"

No idea. Even if I still have the file, I store only one puzzle per rating except the for highest ratings. But in serate's code, a 7.7 diamond seems relatively difficult to find. I tried without success so far to "under optimize" the fresh code in the area {7.6 8.1} to be closer to serate. So, even with the fresh code

most of the ER7.7 of the clone are rated 7.8 by serate
the best chance to get a 7.7 diamond seems to rate a 7.6 diamond of the clone.

PS and the clone should be ready for preliminary tests up to ~9.0 (multi chains) for the next game
