uA97 V1.5 was a nice variant. Thanks J-C. Smile

There is a lot of similarity between Afmob's walkthrough and mine but we took significantly different paths to break this puzzle open after an easy opening. It was surprising that the early stages were, in fact, easier than for Afmob's original puzzle. This variant didn't need clashes between cages and hidden cages in N8 which were used in the quickest start for the original puzzle. I must admit I was disappointed that I was unable to use the overlap of R7C3467 and R7C456; maybe it will be needed for J-C's V2 if I try it.

It looks as if a very short forcing chain, Afmob's step 7a, my step 30, is one of the key moves in this puzzle.

I must admit I couldn't follow Gary's "By using x-wings on the 1s in r123 can now show that in N2 9<>12(3) cage.So 11(2) cage N5={29}". I couldn't see any x-wings on those 1s. There is a forcing chain for R1 where either R1C5 must be 1 or R1C78 must be {19). That still leaves 9 to be eliminated from R3C5; in my walkthrough 9 was eliminated from R2C5 by CPE.

Afmob's step 7d is the sort of step that's probably more easily seen by those using software solvers than by me using an Excel worksheet and only looking up combinations in Ruudís Combination Calculator or when previously included in my partial walkthrough.

After reading Afmob's walkthrough, I checked whether that step could have been used in my solving path but it couldn't. I still had {459} in 18(3) cage at R5C7. I made the same eliminations in my more complicated step 34.

I'll go slightly higher than Afmob and rate uA97 V1.5 as an Easier 1.5. Most of my steps 29 to 34 were fairly difficult to find. Maybe it's a Hard 1.25 for those using software solvers and an Easier 1.5 for those of us who don't. Still I've got no immediate plans to change my solving method.

Here is my walkthrough for uA97 V1.5.

Thanks J-C for uA97 V2. That was really neat to create a puzzle with 3 IOUs in R7, all with a difference of 7, so that 7 is locked for R7 and N8!

I must admit that I'd seen J-C's step 2d before I managed to solve this puzzle but, as explained in the comment before step 16, I hope I would have found it anyway. IMHO the overlap of R7C3467 and R7C456 is easier to spot than J-C's way. I was also prepared to do combination analysis on R7C3467 and R7C456, using the fact that R7C46 are common cells for both hidden cages, but that wasn't necessary.

After he had gone through J-C's walkthrough, Afmob suggested that this puzzle should be rated Hard 1.25. However, having solved it myself with help on that one step, I felt that it had a long solution and a fairly narrow solving path with many of my key steps the same as those used by J-C, so I'll rate uA97 V2 at 1.5.

Here is my walkthrough.

Prelims

a) R45C5 = {39/48/57}, no 1,2,6
b) R67C5 = {19/28/37/46}, no 5
c) R89C1 = {17/26/35}, no 4,8,9
d) R89C9 = {29/38/47/56}, no 1
e) R1C123 = {489/579/678}, no 1,2,3
f) 10(3) cage at R5C6 = {127/136/145/235}, no 8,9
g) 10(3) cage in N9 = {127/136/145/235}, no 8,9

1. 45 rule on C1234 2 innies R89C4 = 12 = {39/48/57}, no 1,2,6

2. 45 rule on C6789 2 innies R89C6 = 15 = {69/78}

3. 45 rule on C5 2 innies R89C5 = 6 = {15/24}

4. R8C456 = {189/279/459/468/567} (cannot be {369/378} because R8C5 only contains 1,2,4,5), no 3, clean-up: no 9 in R9C4 (step 1)

5. 45 rule on N8 3 innies R7C456 = 12 = {138/156/237/246} (cannot be {129/147/345} which clash with R89C5), no 9, clean-up: no 1 in R6C5
[I probably ought to have looked at R9C456 next and found that it cannot be {159/249} because of clashes between R89C5 and R9C45, thus locking 9 in R8C46. However I donít think it makes much difference missing it. Not much more progress can be made in N8 until R7C456 is reduced to one combination.]

6. 45 rule on R89 2 innies R8C37 = 11 = {29/38/47/56}, no 1

7. 45 rule on C1 1 innie R1C1 = 1 outie R7C2 + 5, R1C1 = {6789}, R7C2 = {1234}

10. 45 rule on R1 3 innies R1C456 = 11 = {137/146/236/245} (cannot be {128} which clashes with R1C9), no 8,9

11. 45 rule on N7 2 innies R7C12 = 1 outie R7C4 + 7, IOU no 7 in R7C1
11a. Max R7C12 = 13 -> max R7C4 = 6
11b. Min R7C4 = 1 -> min R7C12 = 8, min R7C1 = 5 because R7C12 cannot be [44]

12. 45 rule on N9 2 innies R7C89 = 1 outie R7C6 + 7, IOU no 7 in R7C9
12a. Min R7C89 = 9 -> min R7C6 = 2
12b. Max R7C6 = 8 -> max R7C89 = 15, no 8,9 in R7C9

13. Hidden killer quad 6,7,8,9 in R123C5, R45C5 and R67C5 for C5 -> R123C5 must contain two of 6,7,8,9
13a. R123C5 = {179/269/278/368/467} (cannot be {359/458} which only contain one of 6,7,8,9), no 5

14. Combined cage R4589C5 = 18 = {1359/1458/2349/2457} (cannot be {1278/2358} which clash with R89C5)

15. R123C5 (step 13a) = {269/278/368/467} (cannot be {179} which clashes with R4589C5), no 1
15a. 1 in C5 locked in R789C5, locked for N8

[The next step was helped by J-Cís walkthrough (step 2d). Iíd already made notes about the overlap of R7C3467 and R7C456. I just hadnít yet(?) spotted the key point that it gives another IOU in R7. It may be harder to spot this because in both the original puzzle and V1.5, R7C37 = R7C5 which doesnít give an IOU.]

16. 45 rule on R89 4 outies R7C3467 = 19, R7C456 = 12 (step 5) -> R7C37 = R7C5 + 7, IOU no 7 in R7C37
