No file format involved!! The puzzles are straight from the Patterns Game results page, for game 0016: http://forum.enjoysudoku.com/post60198.html#p60198 - I simply take all the puzzles submitted in that game, insert '0016' in each line - that's enough info to show a puzzle's origin!

I wasn't trying to figure out a puzzle's origin, I was trying to figure out a way to filter a collection of puzzles for Diamonds and Pearls for specific techniques, so I don't have to keep asking for puzzles for every new technique I'm studying. :)

I downloaded all the collections I could find on the internet, which wasn't really that many, but I do have mass quantities of puzzles.

You should be able to rate the puzzles using SE and filter out the diamonds from the pearls.

To find out the techniques used by SE to solve a puzzle, you can use this:
Code: Select all
java.exe -cp SudokuExplainer.jar diuf.sudoku.test.Tester puzzles.txt puzzles.log

Example puzzle.log:
Code: Select all
Analyzing Sudoku #1
59 Hidden Single
1 Naked Single
1 Direct Hidden Triplet
1 Pointing
2 Naked Pair
1 X-Wing
9 Hidden Pair
4 Naked Triplet
7 Swordfish
4 Hidden Triplet
2 XY-Wing
1 Aligned Pair Exclusion
1 Bidirectional X-Cycle
2 Forcing X-Chain
2 Bidirectional Y-Cycle
Hardest technique: Bidirectional Y-Cycle
Difficulty: 6.9

Analyzing Sudoku #2
59 Hidden Single
1 Direct Hidden Pair
1 Direct Hidden Triplet
2 Naked Pair
1 X-Wing
8 Hidden Pair
2 Naked Triplet
7 Swordfish
5 Hidden Triplet
2 XY-Wing
1 Forcing X-Chain
1 Bidirectional Cycle
Hardest technique: Bidirectional Cycle
Difficulty: 7.0

Finished.

Tester is in SudokuExplainer 1.2.1.3 (as used in the Patterns Game) - For some reason, it's been removed in SukakuExapliner.

You can still get that, it's just in the GUI.
