Palapeli: Creating puzzles

October 14, 2009

Since starting to rewrite Palapeli (three weeks ago), it was not possible anymore to create new puzzles. This last and most important feature is now back again.

Proof that the last missing feature has been added

And here’s a call for participation: The layout of the puzzle creator dialog (which comes up when you click that button) is far from optimal. Please try Palapeli, create some puzzles, and if you can come up with a better design for this dialog, please write back. Thanks in advance!

    Hey. I really missed this feature, thanks for bringing it back! Unfortunately, it does not work for me. I tried both .jpg and .png. “Puzzle type” is greyed out. There is nothing in “Advanced slicing options” section. Filled in all information, button “Create puzzle” is still greyed out.

      Then you have not configured your KDEDIRS environment variable correctly. If you have followed my installation guide that I’ve put on this blog, try to launch “kbuildsycoca4 && palapeli” from the command line, and see whether you can select some “puzzle type” now.

    Also, another thing, not related, but while I’m still here 🙂 I like that you moved the play button, for starting puzzles. But in my opinion it’s a bit annoying that it appears as soon as you hover. Maybe, make it that it appears only when you hover image?

    Hi, and thanks for this great game!

    I can’t create new puzzle, I have the same problem than KlavKalashj had:
    “Puzzle type” is greyed out.
    “kbuildsycoca4 && palapeli” didn’t work, it’s still greyed out.

    I’m running Slackware-current with KDE 4.3.2.

    Any suggestions?

    running “kbuildsycoca4 && palapeli” worked for me but only after filling out all items on the down menus. Puzzle is great but, need to know what format sizing is best. Trial and error may take quite a few tries and 800 by 600 dpi or what ever would help on size so the pieces will not be so small. PCLinuxOS 2013 desktop KDE 4.
    Thanks you have done well!!!!
