Wordle problem (For Ali Lloyd)

Post by dunbarx » Wed Jan 26, 2022 10:05 pm

My copy all of a sudden will not allow me to uncheck the "Guess must be a word" checkbox.

The only way to play this game is to be able to enter whatever letters seem best at whatever point in the process one finds oneself. I start out with "AEIOU", then move to "NSTRL". With that information, I can then make choices about the next group.

But if each entry has to be a word, the game is entirely different, and not nearly as cool.

@Ali. What happened?

Hi Craig, apologies - I was trying to submit to the iOS app store, and due to the many hoops I had to jump through I made a mistake while changing that to a svg widget checkbox. Should be fixed now.

Incidentally, they still will not allow me to submit it to the app store due to 'copycat' rules, despite there being several copycat Wordle apps already on the store and mine (IMO) having significant extra features to warrant inclusion.

You are apologizing for giving a gift to the world??

But thank you so much for fixing it. :D :D

For Ali.

i see there is a new tab , "custom". What does it do? Can one add their own words to the lexicon? What is the "code" for?

Mark.

These new-fangled games are addicting, all right.

I like not to have to use a legitimate word to test possible letters. I am an American using the SOWPODS dictionary, and only know a fraction of the words there. It is a rather different game than using a smaller dictionary and have to use actual words to find the solution. Both seem to have their adherents.

Absurdle only lets you use legitimate five-letter words.
And Nerdle only lets you enter equations that actually compile.
