Solution Module not working

Postby dacva » Sat Aug 16, 2008 11:47 am

I have noticed that the solution module is not working . I put in the five digit code and the paper's name and it can't find it. For example,

The Washington Post in DC has the following for Friday August 15th

* * * 6 * * 5 * *
* 4 7 2 * * * * *
* * 2 * * 3 * 7 *

I put in the following five number code 65472 (the first five numbers from right to left, top to bottom) and it says that the solution cannot be found.

no, they do find a 65472 -- but it isn't the puzzle you're looking for --

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

Shouldn't that be "left to right"? If it really is right to left, that would explain the problem.
