Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Suggestions

@LeiCi Picma is not the typical vectorial Flash game, we work mostly with raster images and as such a quality button would do nothing. We are however trying to improve performance with each build.

@ankh_ascendant The next update should see those improved.

@NickadO Just hold CTRL or use WASD.

We’ve sent less than 2,5Gb over the last two weeks across all players, so I’m reasonably sure there’s something else going on with your connection. ;)

We previously had a separate “report” button but people kept using it for images they disliked instead of actually offensive ones.

As it stands, offensive images quickly get voted down and are rejected – they never make it to the puzzle pool.

We should have this issue fixed in the next build (probably tomorrow).

Strange, the server logs show no strange activity.

We’re working however in some tweaks that might help with any connectivity issues.

Thanks for the suggestions.

You don’t need to “find” a puzzle to continue playing. Simply use the appropriate “Load Puzzle” button in the main menu.

Fixed. Sorry about that.

Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Journeyman, 30X30 puzzle

Plus puzzles bigger than 15×15 can get very hard, very fast, with the most difficult moment often being where to begin.

You can begin by marking a few cells from that horizontal 15. This will also allow you to mark several cells from that vertical 9 due to the fact that our previous horizontal cells can’t be part of it – the vertical 9 starts at best on line 11 and the cells we just marked are on line 10.

You can also mark a few cells from that vertical 8 and horizontal 6. In this case, our previous markings of the vertical 9 allow us to mark a few extra cells from the 6.

I hope that helps get you started!

Topic: Picma - Picture Enigmas / Can you solve the 35x30 Plus Expert puzzle w/o guessing?

This is a really, really hard puzzle.

Try this: http://imgur.com/a/70Wl6

The first breakthrough are those yellow vertical cells, possible by noticing that there is no red before line 8.

Most of the tips we’re planning on adding to the advanced tutorial can be found in the wiki page of the original puzzle game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonogram

It will take us a while to redo the tutorials so I hope that helps in the meanwhile.

We’re looking into it.

Yes, we have plans to completely rework the tutorial and add some “tips” that are actually quite necessary for larger puzzles. Some recent testing has shown us that our tutorials need some serious work.

We thought we had fix all instances of this issue. A page refresh should clear everything and both you Coin total and the puzzle status will be corrected.

Thanks guys/gals, we’ll look into these asap.

We’re going to add an option that lets you disable the auto-pause feature.

It also seems we have a new bug to fix! ;)

You make good points and this is a matter we have been discussing internally for quite some time. We may have some news on this front very soon. ;)

Awesome! Glad to have fixed those!

Seems we need to tweak the code that automatically fades the numbers. The 5 on the 7th line shouldn’t be greyed out as you have a mistake there (same with the second 1 on the third row).

@bbdest We have that feature planned, but it will take a while to implement.

@mitzipuppy1212 You don’t actually create puzzles, only the image used to generate one (or three). The validation system in the client is a “lite” version of the puzzle creation system which is very resource intensive, taking several minutes on a very potent machine to generate some of the larger puzzles. Given the number of puzzles we receive it’s simply not possible to generate puzzles for everything and therefore the creation algorithms only run after the moderation process.

@Salisria Fullscreen on Kongregate is only available for iframe and Unity games. Sadly Picma is neither and therefore we had to disable the fullscreen system that we already had implemented (and is working on our website).

What is your browser/os?

On Linux it should work on Chrome 38/Ubuntu but we haven’t been able to get it working on Firefox (yet).
