    Default Freecell game #716,049

    I like to think that I am reasonably competent but this one has me well stumped. I do not have the 'dose number. On my machine there are 1,000,000 games!

    So a word picture:

    10dAs7d7cKc4d3cAh
    KhJs2d8d8h4h10c5s
    10sJh7hAc7sJd5hQd
    5c9hQh6sAdKs3s6d
    3hJs2c6c6h2s9cKd
    8c9d10h3s8s2hQc4c
    5dQs4s9s
    If Australia is a democracy why, then, is voting compulsory?

    I got up to game 13,360 and then installed Linux so freecell has been given the boot.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    My machine is running puppy linux 5.2.8

    Each time I upgraded to a later version of puppy, freecell and other favourite programs were installed. Takes some time as the libraries have to be copied but if you really want something ...

    Thanks guiseppe, I deliberately did not go looking for it, as it is a great time waster.

    Can you select which game you play? I was working through them all one by one.

    Yes a particular game number can be input and selected.

    Normally I am happy with random though.

    An old thread I know.

    The never give-up attitude seems to eventually pay off - note that I have played hundreds of games since my original post - kicked the proverbial goal today and have the screen photo to prove it.

    Good on you guiseppe, It's a few years since I've played freecell, can't recall if the issue was game numbers from windows not matching ubuntu or inability to select game numbers in ubuntu. Maybe I should look it up again.

    The game numbers in windows certainly do not match those in Puppy.

    (a) Mostly presentation -- it's easier for folks to read and see (the image) in the single reply read, than to have to read, then click on a link, which opens another browser window, so they can see what the post is about =)

    (b) This is all automated in linux running XFCE, so it's 1, 2, 3 easy....but long form...

    You can use the 'Insert Image' widget, or do it manually...ie; in my post showing the image, that's ;



    Note the .jpeg suffix on the image file name -- for it to work, you must link to an image (.jpeg .jpg .bmp .png etc etc..)

    The link you provided.... ...is a pointer to the -album- that contains the image, not the image itself. If you click that link, and then right click -> view image, you'll get the actual image link.

    That explain it for you?
