Talk:15 puzzle game

From Rosetta Code

task clarification

I assume the task is to implement a computer program to

  •   simulate playing the 15-game (puzzle)
  •   generate a random start position
  •   prompt the user for which piece to move
  •   validate if the move is legal (possible)
  •   display the game (puzzle) as pieces are moved
  •   announce when the puzzle is solved
  •   possibly keep track of the number of moves

should a random puzzle position be winnable?

Should the initial (random) puzzle position be a winnable puzzle?   -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 07:30, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Yes. --Rdm (talk) 12:46, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

Javascript query

When you complete the javascript game, the alert shows without the last move updated. Is there a way to update the screen before the alert? Pete Lomax (talk) 17:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Sure, though fixing that here won't fix the off-site implementation. --Rdm (talk) 17:33, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks. Pete Lomax (talk) 18:14, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Vote to remove "code golf" example.

Can 15_Puzzle_Game#C89.2C_22_lines_version be removed?

This site isn't about code golf, it's about presenting readable, comparable, useful examples of solving tasks in various languages. The linked example is not readable, comparable, or useful in my opinion and should just be removed.

+1 on that! It's not RC. --Paddy3118 (talk) 07:57, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
