Descramble It! Pixel Puzzle!

on: February 06, 2007, 01:23:14 am

The puzzle consists of 8x8 pixel puzzle pieces.
When you think you've solved it, post it here.
If you want to add a new puzzle, you must first solve a puzzle.
If all puzzles are solved, anyone can post a new one.

anybody posting new puzzles without solving one will have their post removed(unless all are solved).

Maybe hard for you, but the challenge is more fun without clues. I'm already half way done.

Ptoing = Killer of Joy.

This stupid thing was driving me crazy. I just opened it up at work, and tried separating each cube with graphicgale's hard ass selection tool( the free version...not good, no eraser, no fun)...Maybe the next one will be up soon. I need something to kill time while I'm at work.
my back hurts...

I invested 5 minutes of my time into programming a little applet to blow up everything 4 times and seperate it into blocks for dragabilty. :P

Is that cheating?

Wow, this sounds pretty neat. I'm pretty good at puzzles, methinks. Well, we shall have to see.  :-\

Btw, are any of the tiles rotated? Cus that would be solid.  :ouch:

Here you go.



I think this one is prolly easier than the one Alex made.

Nothing in Alex's was rotated and neither is anything in mine, I think that would be too hard. Lets keep this fun.

Oh god, I'm retarded.

I was so confused, it seemed like there were pieces missing, and then I realized that I had forgotten to turn 8 layers of Photoshop back on.



I'll pass the next puzzle onto whoever would like to do it - I don't want to keep people waiting, and it'd take me awhile.

EDIT: Here's a new one for you. Don't expect it to unveil something amazing but at least I did one.Thanks to Stwelin for scrambling it for me.

I don't give a flying fuck if the top bit is correct, because it is baaaad puzzlemaking, the top 2 rows are really really arbitrary and ambivalent. The rest is nice tho.

You're right. I realized at the same second I saw the scrambled version that it was going to be impossible to solve the top part. Sorry about that. Hopefully everyone learns from my mistake so we won't have to see that again. And for the record, here's the unscrambled version:

if you solved at least one, then you can post one anytime.
I just don't want people making tons without solving any and then having a bunch of unsolved puzzles.

but maybe that wouldn't be a problem?

In anycase, Lawrence's one was unsolvable, a hoax. That is why he removed it and correctly so. If I spot anyone posting hoax images that are unsolvable I will personally ban him for 3 month. Because it is not funny and spoils the fun. Spoil the fun and get your fun spoiled!

Keep it up, this is really a fun activity.

Yeah, I messed with Lawrence's for a while but gave up after about half an hour. I already had more important things I should have been doing, but working on an unsolvable puzzle is a complete waste of time. Thanks a lot, jerk face.  >:P~

Yeah, I thought yours might be unsolvable. I just didn't believe it, seems a terribly vindictive thing to do. :P

Anyhow, seeing as no-one is posting a new one yet, I'll post mine. Hopefully it's not too hard:

I am pretty sure I know what it is but I can't get the pieces together... yet.

Yes? No?


If it is right I don't have time to make a new one, need sleep.

I had this all scrambled and ready to post, but I decided to test it out, despite the fact I knew it had no identical tiles. Good thing too, 'cause there was still some ambiguity, but it should be gone now.

Yay, the thread lives. See, I told you mine would be easy. Wasn't it easy? I sure as hell hope it was easy, because I spent HOURS trying to figure out how to make it as easy as possible! It's color coded, even. Blue on top, green on middle, brown on bottom, and there's a big figure standing there, and I even made some roads that snake around JUST to make sure there are no interchangable tiles. Also, borders. The one starting point for real life puzzles. Yeah, I sure do hope it was easy.

That's weird, Ptoing. A friend of mine on MSN also said he couldn't see it... but it's a normal Imageshack upload, and no one else has any problems...

Here's mine. I'm guessing this will be pretty hard because of the rendering style I used.

fil_razorback - cool, seems to work well. The interface design makes perfect sense but it has two usability issues- one is that the tiles' movement resolution is the screen resolution rather than the original image's. The second is the size of the work space- it's easy to run out of room .

fil_razorback's puzzle

I didn't use your online solver though. It would have been great, if you'd have some more space to work on (for example making the workspace twice as wide) and if the tiles snapped to a 8x8-grid when you move them around the canvas, meaning that the possible x- and y-coordinates of the individual tiles could only be multiples of 8.

maybe it'd work better as a free-for-all: if there's no puzzles left, anyone can make one?

So I'm not sure if this is a legal move, but Lawrence's solution looks right to me and I have one ready - so I am throwing caution to the wind and declaring it to be new puzzle time!

difficulty: probably kind of easy?
...apologies if this is a dick move. I really don't want to piss anybody off, but I figure more puzzles = success.

It looks hard, because it only has five colours, but if you collect the ones with similar patterns they should start to line up kind of easily. (though I can't really quite gauge the difficulty because I already know what it's supposed to look like).

ive now spent like 2 hours trying to get this puzzle, and its driving me nuts, so i thought i'd share what i've "accomplished" so far, in hopes that someone else sees something in my mess and can finish it...

it doesn't look like anything to me, but each tile in the big chunks doesn't really seem to fit anywhere else. Maybe i've just stred at it too long and i'll get laughed at in a minute, but oh well :)

whats interesting (to me at least) is that the straight bits where it seems to not fit well are mostly on the tiles themselves, not in the border between them... thats why i've joined it up like this.

Anyway, i cant stand looking at this any longer, enjoy!

I tried, and mine looked nothing like your segments.  Tough nut to crack.  Maybe even impossible, unlike real jigsaw puzzles, there is no one correct way.

Indeed the big problem here is ambivalence. There are lots of combinations which look like they are making sense, regardless of being right or not.
Same goes for Bob's castle. There are some tiles which are interchangable and it would not look broken. I urge people who are making puzzles that they make less noisy stuff and check that they do not have tiles which are pretty much identical.

Also, I would say, everyone should feel free to post a new puzzle if the newest one is not solved after 24 hours. This way we can keep this thing going.
Nothing speaks against having more than one puzzle open either.

Keep on puzzling

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Okay, I think I should retract this one - it seems pretty unlikely that anyone will solve it, and, looking at mikeG's interpretation I can see where I messed up. I feel bad for posting such a broken puzzle.

Should I just post the solution or something?

I like SO wanted to solve that one, but almost all of the pieces fit 'equally well'.

You sure you just changed the places of the tiles and not rotated / flipped them? Coz all I'm getting is just these random shapes after I get that orange thing (I don't want to say it out loud coz I don't wanna spoil it) done. It's driving me nuts... maybe I'm just bad at this :P

About 10 minutes. At first I was a bit "eh?" and then it clicked what it was and I was "oh!" and it was really easy from there on.



As I can not be arsed to make another puzzle, whoever calls dibs after me to do one can make one!

Hey, while I remember, do you have the solution to your scrambled image for the descrable it thing?

A month ago my computer dies, takes with it the only copy I kept of the solution. That same week, ilkke comes and he asks me if I can send it to him. I say, you know what? I made this puzzle, I can put it back together. So I gave it a go, and spent hours doing it, and in the end it turns out even I couldn't do it, not exactly. So I really am sorry about how broken it was.

Anyway, it's something very close to:


Again, I 'm really sorry about this whole damn thing.  :-[ :crazy:
