The solution says I'm wrong but I cannot see where! Is there any way of adding a screenshot to this message?

You can email Gareth@Puzzlemix.com or save your game and I’ll open it.

...so the problem of how to provide a screenshot has more than one unique solution...

Let me guess where you are wrong: in column 4 and 5 (labeled 3 and 2) you toggled the numbers 3 and 2, so the clue 3 at the bottom of column 5 is not matched. That's what I would miss I think.

I have no idea what's wrong - maybe lockdown madness has finally overtaken me! I've email Gareth hopefully his brain hasn't gone to mush like mine.

Mine too ziggymole. I've been making really stupid mistakes, though not on skyscrapers which I just can't do at all

I've looked at the pics you sent. It's just that 'give up' shows what you entered in green, and the puzzle solution in large digits in the middle. So the large, red numbers were not your solution, but the solution. So that's why the actual solution matches the actual solution shown the day before. But it doesn't match what you entered - shown in green - which is wrong as I've explained by email.

But I must admit it confused me for a minute too! Using green for 'what you entered' on the give-up screen was probably a bad choice.

Gareth, it took me a while to understand what you wrote, because I never used the 'give up' option.

So when ziggymole was looking for "his" mistake, he was looking for it in the correct solution?

Yes - and me too, to be fair, when I first reviewed the picture!!! :)

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
