Ruud,
Thanks so much for making this collection available. Right down my alley.

What settings do I need to set in SudoCue to be able to create puzzles with the exact same difficulty and also that force the puzzles to contain x-wings and nothing higher?

Did you use SudoCue to create the Superiors Collection?

Thanks,
George

These puzzles have been created with a program that churns out large batches of sudokus overnight. Only 1 in 100,000 puzzles meets the "Superior" criteria, but the program can easily generate half a million puzzles in a single night.

It is not possible to exactly set the generator to make puzzles to match these criteria. The odds to find them are simply too small.

What you could do is try to generate puzzles with a rating of 900 or more with all techniques above X-Wing disabled. The highest in this collection are twice that rating, but those are extremely rare.

I thought I'd keep you busy for a while, now you've got 160 to work on. Leaves me some time to work on other projects. Cool

Ruud
