Nothing interesting here...

This riddle is designed to test the abilities and programming methodologies of software engineering candidates interested in employment at deviantART.

You can see the complete explanation of the problem here

I might even get some dA Buttons :bucktooth:

Making the UI took 3 times more than the problem itself lol
But I likez the lookz of itz... and it gave me an idea for a game :eyes:

Will scrap it soon...

Cheers

[EDIT July 30, 2007] Fixed some minor bugs, and added right click menu

This is incredible - while I'm not well versed in the ways of programming per se, I can certainly appreciate the complexity! Very nicely done. :nod:

...won? :?

The dA Riddle was not a competition, it was a real life problem that you would meet everyday if you were an IT developer for dA...
It was a way to "filter" the applicants that could be considered for the job from the ones that couldn't...

It's funny how with a bit of math and physics you can create a dynamic program as such with realistic properties. And to think that this could be taken on (in other languages) made 3D, react to other objects within it, try it underwater and everything. All with changing maths and physics. It's awesome. Both the game and physics.

Would it be possible to make it full screen and add objects...and a scrolling screen 'world' >_> maybe I'm thinking up of things that would take a long long time to code and you'd need a lot of free time heh, but the idea is cool. And this is fun :thumbsup:

Yeah, I guess it could, not so hard to code, but there would definitely be some hard work required.
But this is not exactly a game, that's an user interface for the code that solves dA Riddle.
It just allows you to visually describe the server/connections problem, instead of typing it in the code.

Cheers
