why is there a black dos screen popping up when starting each level?

hmm there doesn't seem to be an error tracker for this so...
Exception in thread Thread-5:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "threading.pyo", line 486, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "Shapeshifter.py", line 210, in run
  File "<string>", line 0
	
   ^
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing

Exception in thread Thread-3:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "threading.pyo", line 486, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "Shapeshifter.py", line 210, in run
  File "<string>", line 0
	
   ^
SyntaxError: unexpected EOF while parsing

anything to be worried about?

Its part of the parsing method. Windows doesn't handle it very properly :(

dunno. i kept the program running for around 45mins and nothing happened.
tbh, i think it may have been my fault. after i waited and jack-all happened i closed the command line, so that may be the error that i got.

Yeah. No killing the processing part :p.

The program works in two parts inorder to be able to function properly. One part of the program gets the pieces, and simulates the playing field, the other part gives an answer.

This way, we pull the board, ask the second part of an answer, it runs through, comes up with an answer, the first part fake plays the answer, if it doesnt work, it asks again. :p. Much better then an ordinary brute force method.

neopets doesnt let you play on after you reach the max nps for the day

That's what i figured. It's just that the UI said the status was "navigating to shapeshifter" so i thought that the program had encountered an error somewhere.
thanks for the help, iargue :)

I am so excited to try the revised version. I will need to wait until my post reaches 310 so that it will play one more level.
Do you know how long it will take to finish 1 level (in 31 - 50 level range)?

im at level 10 and it takes about 10-15s.. so i can not immagine it taking that long.. either way would be much more easier than the legit way ;)

It took 66mins to complete 2 levels in that range. It then completed the next 3 in under 15mins.

Guess how long it takes sometimes depends on luck in getting easier puzzle

Not sure if its a problem on my end but its only completing six puzzles then saying "this is the maximum amount allowed to be completed by neocodex"
i thought this might be cos i dont post much but i am an advanced member. Any ideas?

This program is restricted by your post count. It will only solve up to the level of your post count divided by 10. So if your post count is 500, it will solve to level 50. If your post count is 50, it will solve to level 5.

There is a limit on all Advanced Members and under. Unless you are a programmer, retired member, admin, etc, the highest it will go is level 6 or your post count divided by 10 (which ever is higher so people can get their avatar).

Since this program doesn't return anything to the community (besides trashing the high scores), I came to the decision that it will be limited by post count (1000 posts are required in order to beat level 100) and the other programmers and admins agreed it is a good idea.

I also like how you only have 1 post in 2 years. If you really want the limits removed, feel free to harass me for the password to bypass the limits.

Yes but unless i am mistaken when i got advanced member it said "unrestricted programs" wouldnt that include this? Alsoi i only have like 3 posts, so wouldnt it solve less than one puzzle? I still dont get it :p

And yeah. I join aggeees ago. but soon after quit neopets. Only just started again like a week ago. But fair enough with the post count thing. Makes sense.

Not quite sure what the advantages of advanced member are yet as i couldnt really see a huge change to the forums and theres a few minor differences to Ambrosia.

But im happy to donate to the community anyway, its clear the all work hard :)

The unrestricted access means that you get full access to the programs which distinguish between Advanced Members and regular Members (like how Abrosia gives you certain extra functions if you're an Advanced Member). And we should have some more programs available around Christmas time. ;)

I'm going to add a few words so it's not spam. But in all srznz, I think making more programs advanced would make people post more, instead of just Abrosia :o Like the AA'er :p

But if they purchase a 6 months subscription they get it for the low, low price of only $3 per month!!
