Re: Coding Challenge 4!

Not sure about NF files, but I created my files with the following Python script: import random TOTAL_NUMS = 10000 nums = "" for i in range(TOTAL_NUMS): nums += str(random.randint(0,65535)) + " " nums = nums[:-1] # remove trailing space with open('randnums.txt', 'w') as file: file.write("Slidy's Tes...

Re: my solutions

Yeah that seems pretty good, but you can eliminate more words based on the guess. You're only eliminating words that have a score less than the targetScore, but if you think about it you can eliminate any word that has a score not equal to the targetScore. After doing that, the number of attempts it...

Re: my solutions

They were allowed at the time when I made this as long as you didn't use it to spam/advertise, but seems they recently made them completely banned. Looks like they don't enforce this all that well though, I used it about 10 times today, spamming around 10 messages each time and my account hasn't bee...

Re: Problems with Visual Studio Compiler

I think Chili mentioned before that he doesn't mind people using the framework to make games, but honestly the framework is just a light wrapper around some DirectX and WinAPI calls. It's more suited as a learning tool than as a game making tool. By the time you're proficient in C++ you'll be better...

Re: my solutions

Sorry to hear that man, hope you're ok :( Making the solver is actually simpler than it seems. You have the source code to Chili's Werd Game on GitHub, which makes things a lot easier. You know exactly how the score is calculated, and you know exactly what words are used in the list. Knowing all of ...

Re: Laziness

I wouldn't force yourself to "do" programming, just go at your own pace. Take a break like albinopapa said if needed then get back into it. Also personally I wouldn't try to just "learn" Unity, I find that style of just absorbing info really dry and difficult to do. Instead I prefer to take on a pro...

Some extremely talented hacker also made a solver for the bot, no clue how: https://i.imgur.com/eEjjUGU.gifv
