New personal records
Feb 23rd, 2005 at 3:27pm
 
I thought it might be an idea to start this thread, so people can announce their new personal records or comment on other people's latest achievements.

Therefore, I'll start by congratulating everyone with their most recent improvements. I see that Yariv tied the genius record. Unfortunately, I managed to swoop past everyone with my 203 game last night Grin

I just have a slight feeling that some of the top guys play a little more expert and intermediate than genius, though. I'm sure many of the best players could get below 200 on a good board. It's nice to have that WR for a while,though 8)

Just keep on improving your times, everyone!

@Andrix: Do you have a screenshot of your WR game (57s)? That would be great. Smiley
My e-mail address: gerowaelz@vr-web.de, or you upload it on this forum. I think everybody is interested in this game.

It is hard to believe that this 57s are real  Undecided
Andrix has 6 at beg. and 77 at int. both on 25.01 and now...what a score! Tongue

I've just removed the 57 seconds as Andrix's scores are too suspicious! Undecided
If he can show a screenshot I'll replace it...

I missed Andrix' attempt to get again onto the top with a faked record.

But Jon, congratulations for catching the genius WR! I don't really appreciate the event of having lost another record, but it was very likely to happen, so I was aware of the "risk".

If the Andrix time was valid, he would have defended it on this forum, he obviously cheated somehow. Undecided

Thanks for the congratulations. It seems like Genius has become my favourite board.

If this Andrix-guy cheated, how do you think he did it? Is it possible to figure out how the URL are coded? I also noticed that his name was in black. Does that mean that he didn't use the PRO-version?

That's right, players with no information page (and hence black names) are using the freeware version. It also means that I can't contact them because I don't have their e-mail addresses.

It MAY be possible (though very difficult) to figure out some parts of the URL coding by looking at it, but more likely people have been using hacking tools to mess about with the program while it's running. It's been done before and the guy told me how. Shocked
Still, I have other ways of telling whose scores are likely to be genuine, so please let me know if/when more suspicious scores come up!

If any hackers fancy hacking Nonosweeper and uploading fake times to prove it, please let me know when you've done so so I can remove them! Tongue

WOHOO: Just got 20s on Int Grin
Now I'm on place 1 in the Single Record Rankings and place 2 in the Unweighted Totals. It's really great, to be on top of a list. Smiley

Congrats to all other record breakers, especially Kire who got 5 1s games on Beg. Wink

Now I have 203,204 and 205 seconds on genius. Maybe I can break 200 soon.

Good luck breaking your records, people 8)

"Still, I have other ways of telling whose scores are likely to be genuine, so please let me know if/when more suspicious scores come up!"

Well, the hacker has struck again! This time, not quite so subtle! Andrzej must have had fast fingers to achieve a one second in intermediate!

BTW, I'm working on producing a fake score using the URL source (for curiosity's sake). Iv'e made progress, but I'm working toward submitting a fake beginner 11, so you won't need to worry about me! I'll tell you if I am succesful.

Victory is Mine!

Or as Yariv so eloquently put it:

Time uploaded successfully.
Your score of 11 seconds is in position 268 of 1794.
You already have a better time in the table.

I successfully uploaded a totally bogus,  never played, 11 second begginer time.

I did it with this code:
http://www.nonosweeper.com/cgi-bin/uploadtime.cgi?name=Gavin%20Bauer&data=1D343B...

You are, however somewhat safe, because I played four eleven second games, before making that one, so it would be nearly impossible for a completely random person to fake a 1 that way. It would, however, be possible for someone who has actually gotten three or four 1's, to fake the last few. A rather scary thought if you ask me.

Hmph. Angry

Can't be helped, I suppose - still, I won't worry until someone can upload a score that they haven't previously got to a Pro account.

As Gavin says, it would be possibe to cheat by filling extra 1s, but if someone can get a couple of them to start with then they could surely have got more anyway... so far more people have got 1s (7) than have successfully hacked the game (4, to my knowledge - only Gavin with Pro) so its an achievement in itself! Wink

No software is 100% hacker-proof so I can only urge people to have the decency not to cheat - if you hack, let me know!  Roll Eyes

Also, I don't want to be regarded as a hacker or anything, I don't know the first think about hacking. I just beat beginner over and over, saving all of the codes so I could compare and analyze. I doubt any serious hacking/cheating will be coming that way.

@Gero: You dont have your exact time because is kind of boring to click hundreds of times the ok button for closing the window,do you?Yeah,I understand,its not easy to break records Wink

@Gavin: I want to inform you that the players who achieved several 1s on beginner are deeply attached to nono and will never cheat.If I do,for example, I shall stultify the long days and nights,spent in breaking records and having fun with this great game.So I trust the others and dont bother for these things Wink

Congrats to Luca for tying my Genius record. Being the first under 200 seems to be a though race.

How I start Genius games? I tend to start with the first or last column (sometimes row) if most of it can be figured out easily. Then I just search for easy patterns. When there are no more easy patterns, I solve the hard ones.

After I saw, that you got 19s I played int, too. I also got nearly 19s, but with the last click I missed it.  Cry That's really ****** up.

But congrats to you and of course to  Luca and Roland with their 68s.

Congrats to hexx and all other record breakers. Today I missed a great opportunity to sub-200 on genius. 188 seconds and 10 squares left. I miss a VERY easy pattern Undecided

There was only four more mines, and I had to hit one of them. Would probably have been about 195 seconds if I had been properly focused there. The race continues...

I wonder if it happens to you too:
are there some days in which you do nice scores in succession?

I'm so impressed. Your the absolutly best player. There are no doubts about that. Smiley

And you even improve your times although there isn't a competitor. Really INSANE!!!

You have now 10 sub-70's or even more?

I'm not playing Nono currently, but Mallet Mania. But I'm pretty sure that I will start playing Nono again, when i finished school. And I hope I will get close to you again. Wink

@Roland: Sorry for this late post. Yeah, the student overtook his teacher. That's right. But because I'm not playing now it's your turn again, to attack the first place (to attack Luca). Wink

Yes! After months without a personal record I finally could achieve a 21 in intermediate. So, Luca, watch out carefully *lol*

More impressive than the time itself is the fact that I played totally non-flagging (as I do regularly since T05 of season 2). After some practising, I'm still getting faster and could at least beat my old record!

Anybody out there who has a faster time in intermediate with pure non-flagging? I think that most players' style is a mixture of both, isn't it?

Words are missing for your constant improving. Nearly every week one or two new good times. So I only say:
Congrats. Smiley

Btw, the 61 isn't mentioned in the Records History. Must be a mistake.

ONLY JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked

I can not believe.... 8)

16.50

... OK, I'm believing now. Grin

I wasn't playing Intermediate since my 19s, managed on March 15th.

The game itself was easy and luck did the rest.

I started at right bottom corner, swept up (lucky with the 3 and the 3-2) and didn't flag, except the 10.

It was the crucial moment because i used it as a reference.


...



P.S. Gero, what has your 16s been.

Congrats to Luca's 61 and to hexx' 16. Both are impressive.

But I was lucky as well: I did a nice 19.87 in intermediate, again non-flagging. So, I'm at least #5 now and finally, I am part of the exclusive sub-20 club. Yep!

Very congratulations to Stephan and Hexx!!
I said that Hexx probably was the one who for first will overtake me..
His recent scores make me more sure of it

By the way I thought that 16 was a very very good time and very very hard to equalize. Hexx was lucky yes, but he was also very fast and didn't miss the nice board. So congrats again

'Look, up in the sky,'
'It's a bird,'
'It's a plane,'
.....
'It's SUPERHEXX....' "

Oh, GOD!
It is me!



Guys, do you remember my 16.50s on Intermediate! Smiley
Just forget it, because i have a better score! Grin

15.31

...

Yes, it is true. Wink
And i also achived other interesting scores. 8)
16.42, 17.17, 17.28, 17.36, 17.48, 17.85 and 17.95.
(I played for 4 days and 12 hours in total)

NICE, isn't it?  It is also my first "nonorecord".
I think i have tons of reasons to be happy. Grin

P.S.1- I bet that Luca will play Intermedite in the next couple of days.
P.S.2- Very odd. Every time i think i can't beat a record, i break it. Do you guys have the same sensation?  Roll Eyes

@hexx: How about downloading camtasia and making some vids of your great playing? It shouldn't be a problem for you to play 17s while recording. That would be nice.

Here is the link, where you can download a trial of camtasia:
http://www.techsmith.com/download/studiodefault.asp

Just download the evaluation version and record some good games you play. That would be really nice. You can send your vids to my e-mail: gerowaelz@vr-web.de

Thanks.

Gero,

I'm aware of camtasia and many other screen recorders.
Usually i do not record because it affects my playing rhythm and is boring to make and editing it. Tongue
I will do it when i feel that can't improve my sweepping skills and scores.  
I've just performed another 15s (15.53), and don't have the video. Undecided

...

The only thing i want in the next couple of days is a 14s. Wink

P.S. Just check out Strategy and hints thread.

@Maruda: Congrats. I know it's very nice to have a WR.

But 1s isn't a big lead. So i would keep playing genius if you want to keep your record.

Ok Hexx, you won!
I was thinking about stop playing (except tournament)...
I thought that 13 would be a very very good time but this was only for 5 days.

you are the strategy inventor, so the record must belong to you

congrats again to you and to all other sweepers.

I know, my scores on Int are horrible. I have only this 16, 20x5, rest 21s in my top10 list. I tried to play like you told in your strategy, but I'm not able to finish fast with NF-style. I don't know why. It really goes on my nerves to see you getting better and better times on int, and I still have this lousy average score. I'm happy that I have such a "good" (but really lucky) score for the rankings which are not based on average of top5.
When I play NF, i finish in 40s+. But I don't finish very often. It's so depressing. Argh!!!

WOHOO, just set a new personal NF record: 31s. If one of you would have got this board, I bet you would have scored a 15s or something like that. Undecided

The beginnig, to go round the board is of course no problem. That's easy. But mostly I guess wrong. And if I got that the most difficult part is waiting to be solved.

Gero,

I've just seen your fast flagging 16s video. Really impressive. Shocked
With my strategy i estimate it would be 14s or 13s or even 12s, believe me, i know what i'm saying.

Just calm down, it is easier than you think. Achieving 15s is a piece of cake. Wink

@Maruda: I know that, of course, but playing Genius takes too much time a) to finish a board and b) to get a fast board. During the summer, there are only few reasons to stay at the PC whole afternoons or evenings to improve one's Geinus times Wink.

So, it's more likely that I will drop out of the Top10 than that I improve my record.

Well, I'm first:

Congrats to this really great and impressive score. I thought a while ago that sub60 is impossible. But you didn't got a bad sub60 but even a score right in the middle of the 50's. WOW!!! Shocked

Hm, perhaps sub50 is possible, too. What do you think, hexx? Do you have a special tactic for expert again? Or just sweeping like hell? Wink

I see, I have to play expert again. But my computer is currently away, because it must get repaired. Hope I get it back soon. Don't want ot miss a tourny after I'm under top3.

@hexx: Congratulations! Nearly five months after I achieved my 63 (which was kind of unbelievable at that time), you entered a new dimension. With 1-12-55, you would even get a decent rank in a MINEsweeper ranking (I never thought that this will be possible)!

Btw, with the exception of Maruda, you're the only one of the top players who uses an real-name-hiding user name. Will you sometimes reveal your real name? Would be very sympathetic, Hector (?? - just a possibly stupid guess Grin)!

@Gero:

Sub50s!
Hmmmm, i don't know. Undecided
There is a chinese adage that says:" A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step" and i have just performed a "500 miles step", which means a "step bigger than my own legs"!!!!!
So far, i can assure you that 57s or 58s are achivable. 55s was a full and pleasant surprise. Cheesy

P.S. WACHT OUT!!!!
Genius level is the next CLIENT, and my main goal is to find 1 mine per second, in short, i want to do 148s. Wink


@Stephan and all of you:

I dont have any intention to keep my real name secret, i just use the nickname hexx on everything related to the web. Phonetically sounds good and is easy to memorize.
Here is my profile:
Name: Paulo Justo
Age: 30
Citizenship: Portuguese
Job: Day trader (stock market investor)
Hobby: Nonosweeping
Minesweeper records: 1-22-74

P.S. What about making 15s or 16s on intermediate, it would be nice!  Smiley
I saw your 22s video and noticed that you swing too much. Just do as i said: sweep edges first and then sweep rows using edges to get info.
But there is more, 1s would be nice too. When i visited your website i noticed that you still don't have 1s (Nono and Minesweeper ???). I believe it is a tactic issue. In just 2 weeks (2 hours daily) it is possible to achieve both scores. What do you think, Stephan? (After this you can enjoy the sun, chicks and alcohol!!!!!!!!)

I think you are a little bit faster than us, but not so much as 6 sec from me and 13 from gero, exc

Tournament demonstrate this (I had 6,54 in T5 but for technical problems I couldn't upload it)
So someone will go under 60

I play without thinking but I think you study before playing.. your new strategies demonstrate this

congratulations again
I said that you would be the first

@hexx: Thank you, Paulo! Interesting that you're 30. I always thought you guys must be pupils or students according to the time you seem to play nonosweeper each day. I'm 28, and after working 8 hours each day with a PC, I don't really enjoy sitting several hours in front of a PC again in the evenings...

About my 22: I hate guessing. So, I make guesses in the first row, and afterwards play by logic in 99% of the cases. Sometimes, this is fast, sometimes not. But I prefer having a logically solved 19 than a lucky guess 16. And your strategy of starting with all edges is good and fast, but seldomly to be solved without a lot of luck with the mines' positions. So, I need to much games until I find one where all edges are obvious...

About my 2s: In Minesweeper, I tried for several years and got a 2.06 as personal best. For a long time, I played the old MS version where you need a good board AND the luck of the time jump not happening.
In Nonosweeper, I tried again, but I need too much time in the start, so even if there is a good mine arrangement, I'm likely to need the 2 seconds. But I don't care a lot. I mostly like nonosweeper due to its challenging idea, and I don't really see that challenge in beginner level.
And, finally, I prefer enjoying sun, chick and alcohol right now, not in a few weeks. So, 2 hours daily for 2 weeks are way too long.

Should I be happy or sad? ???

It was a 14,17s, so nearly 13s and I played it on the computer of my parents, so I don't have a vid.

But still... it's nice to have such a good score. Grin

Btw, I finished school, so I have a LOOOOOOOOT time now to play Nono and other games. So be careful, I'm coming to get new #1! Wink

@hexx: Not bad times in Minesweeper for the fact that you don't like this game very much. Smiley

Yeahh!!!

Achieving 14s is a nice sensation, isn' it Gero? Wink
Today i did 13.78 and last week i did 13.89. Grin
Mail me the screenshot or post it in the forums.

You are the one who can save me! Undecided
I have been experiencing problems with camtasia.
I want to record my genius games, but the game gets so slow and flagging is a nightmare that gameplay is next to impossible. (I'm using a 590x540 pixel area with 8 frames capture per second)
What can I do? Angry
I'm doing something wrong? ???

P.S. Who said i don't like Minesweeper!!!!!
I love the game, my problem was that at the time i got fed-up. Tongue

Of course, it's always nice to get a new record. Grin

But I love vids and I don't have one of this game. That's my major problem. Sad

You use a fixed region for recording, right? Record with the window option. Sometimes it will be too small then you must stop recording and start it again so the window gets bigger. If you record like this I think the size of your vid is smaller and so the computer should be faster while recording. Try that out. If it doesn't help I cannot help you until I haven't got my computer back. Don't know how long I must wait for it.

Minesweeper: I think it was in a pretty early post of you where you said something like that. But I'm not sure anymore.

Well, I really hope that I'm able to save you, but I'm not too sure. And if Luca would play (any)more he would have the chance to save you, too.
What's up Luca? Why not thinking about your decision once again and change it? Grin

WOHO: 2nd 14s!!! Grin

But again very close to 13s (14,09s) and again no vid. Angry

But when I have 13sx5 vids I don't need 14s vids anymore. Wink

@hexx: I have too much time, so I searched for your post in the forum where I thought you said you don't like Minesweeper. It's in the 1 second time? section on the first page. You just say that Nono is much more better than it's cousin Minesweeper. Somehow I thought you dislike Minesweeper. Don't ask me why. Smiley

@Gero:

Keep practicing Intermediate because you may achieve 13s.Shocked

I will post my Expert strategy tomorrow afternoon aroud 7 o'clock p.m. (Portuguese time: GMT-1)
Then you can practice Expert as well. Cheesy

About Minesweeper - Let me be clear, i like both games, but if i have to choose one i would vote for Nonosweeper because it is more complex in terms of pattern recognition. Minesweeper patterns are not that challenging, in fact they play identically on Bigginer, Int and Expert levels. To summarize, Nonosweeper is the game of my life time. Wink

Thanks Hexx for revealing your expert strategy as well. At the moment I still use my old style, since I don't know what to do after finishing the right part and the left part sucks. Also I just finished a 13.00. Smiley With a stupid doubt at the end Sad It's a sin!!!

P.S.: Oh, and a 14.02 and a 15.08 afterwards...

What you can do Roland, can I do, too! Grin

Mine was a 13,98. So pretty close to 14. But after my 14x2 which were so close to 13 I think it's just fair.

@Roland:
Very well Roli. This time you were really fast.
What is 0.01s! it is nothing, total emptyness!!!!!!. The 13 is Grin but the double zero is  Tongue. Personally i don't like .00 i would prefer .03 or .10 .

About Expert: My approach to this level is not a surprise, i'm sure that you guys use to play the same way.The difference is that by using sectors and once they are finished you don't need to go there anymore!!!!!

About what to do with center and left sectors:
Center sector- Keep using C and D as new mined blocks are being revealed, it is not rare to "clean-up" all center sector this way. For instance, i used C and D on the missed 47s shot at the strategy post to left out  the small "square" to be swept.  
Left sector- Try to mimic right sector using mirrored STEP1.

P.S. 1- At the same time you did 13.00000000000000000000s  i managed 12.23s , my new personal record!!!!!! Wink
P.S. 2- Mail me the 13s shot if you please.
(and mail me any other interesting Intermediate scores you may achieve in the future)

@Maruda:
Well done, 66s is a great score, did you use my strategy or your own?

@Gero:
First, with Maruda's and Roland's latest scores you are now ranked #6 on Expert. Quite honestly, you can do better than 68s and if you tied Roli's 13s .......
Second, i tried out the video tips you said a few days ago and still have the same problems. It is very annoying.Angry
I have just mailed you 2 videos that show exactly the problems i'm facing.

13,23s!!! Grin
I could have got 12s if I wouldn't had been a bit slow in the beginning. But 13 is ok, too. Smiley

@hexx: Could you perhaps make an example vid for your exp strategy? I don't understand your explanation 100%, so it would help. Or do you have the same problemds like on genius? I don't know what you could change. Perhaps less frames/sec.

YES: 64,95!!! Grin

It was a really perfect game. Very easy. And it was played with my own strategy. Smiley But I'm sure it isn't far away from hexx's.

@Roland: I had to learn for school pretty much the last weeks, so I think it's ok,  when I'm now playing so much.
Good luck for your diploma exams.

Hip hip hooray - after a long disappointing time, I've "learned" hexx's intermediate strategy. So, after getting 20x3 and 21x3 today, I got a new best 19 (19.57), before - right in the next game - I smashed away my old record by achieving a nice 16.93. So, I'm "best of the rest" again, which makes me glad Smiley.

Congrats to Gero as well - please do not cross my 61 in expert Wink

@hexx: I'm ill, so no alcohol these days. And there is not much sun in Munich today. And no chicks in my room Wink. Maybe you're right and I should try to get a 1 in beginner.

My computer must be repaired again, so I tried non-flagging style on Expert at my parents computer. I completed 4 games (I didn't play too long, after a while it got boring) with following times:

1. 273
2. 276
3. 292
4. 337

My first finished game was even the fastes one.
Did anybody tried the same? If yes, what scores did you get?
I think I won't try the same for genius. Wink

10s is not impossible, like the missed 10s (or low 11s) screenshot shows, however with my last Intermediate achievement i close a chapter, no more Int this "season". I will restart playing it on September.  Cheesy

A well-trained eye immediately notice that the 11s grid is not a spectacular easy one, although it is very interesting.
Lets see a few details:

1) I "guessed" 1 time - top row;
2) ... and "thought" 1 time - 3rd bottom row;
3) Did 23 clicks, curiously an high number. All my seven 12s were finished in less than 23 clicks except the 12.90 (24 clicks);
4) The grid has no really large unmined blocks, but  has 4 unmined blocks with 4 boxes which means that i swept 16 squares in a blink of an eye!!!!!!!!!!
5) Didn't "swing", literally speaking, because i took the shortest sweeping path to this particular game.

In conclusion, by not swinging it is possible to save a lot of time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's nice: I got in a row 63,67,65. 8)
Since I started playing Exp again (I have my computer back Cheesy), I get around 3 or 4 sub-70's every day. And higher than 79s I normally don't play. It is really fun, to play Exp again.

I'm sure, hexx and Luca get more sub-70's every day, but I'm content with my stats. Smiley

Happy sweeping all

Nice genius score hexx! Cheesy
And even so close to WR. So a faster time is possible, right?

It was 156.81s, 1.08s slower than my Genius record. Tongue

YES, it is possible to improve and i'm almost sure i can break the 148s barrier! Wink

By the way, do you have the vids of yours 164s and 177s?
Send them to me, OK.
If the videos are bigger than 3Mb use this alternative mail - hexx@gawab.com

Sorry, but I don't record anymore. Sometimes it feels like recording is slowing me down during playing (wow, a lot -ing endings Tongue). So I stopped recording completely.

Today I lost some good games so my best was "only" 197s. Well, improvement for me is in any case possible.

Happy sweeping all!

Wow, what a board. But see, very easy board, one field left to open, but 1s is shown.

Btw, do you also have a special tactic for genius?

OK, you are right, the clock displays 1s.

I did one single click and estimate that it would be 1,20 or 1.30s. Shocked
But i needed to move down because i started at right top corner, which means i wasted  0,20s/ 0.30s to get there!!!!!!

My Genius strategy is quite simple:
I'm now memorizing almost every row patterns that have at least a 7 , this way i can find mines where nobody else can! 8)
And just for today i'm gonna play with the same pace i play Expert to see if i can speed up my scores. Wink

This post is under the topic "New personal records", because I never had such a shitty day like this. I missed so many good chances today that's absolutly record-like!!! Angry

I missed:
   - 13s for current tournament after hours of playing, not after 5min
   - 170s on last click for genius
   - 2 genius boards, where maximal a forth was missing with a pretty low time
   - Another good board, where I could have got a time in the 170's (or was it yesterday? I fail a lot currently, when I have good chances Cry)

Well, just wanted to tell you of my "great record". Haha Cry

Sorry Gero, you are mistaken! ???

Genius level has 148 mines, so 1 click/sec means that you have to finish the game in 148s. Grin
This is why i want to manage 147.99s. Shocked

Sorry hexx, but you're wrong. I always wondered why you talked of 148s barrier. It's the 152s barrier you mean. Smiley
Genius level has 300 fields with 148 mines. That means 152 fields to open. So if you have a score of 152sec, you opened exactly one field per second.

Btw, if you play Beg, do you record? If you should really get 0s, i want to see the vid!!! And missclicking and -flagging shouldn't be a problem with this small size.

Confused! I explain. Grin

JUST FORGET MY LAST POST, OK. Tongue

There is a misunderstanding  between 2 different concepts: Click/sec and Mine/sec.

My Genius goal is to break 1 mine/sec barrier, this explains the 147.99s. Roll Eyes

Now I think it is all clear, right? Wink

Meanwhile, i did 3x1s last Thursday: 1.65, 1.94 and 1.95 .

The 1.65s game was a remarkable score because it needed 4 clicks to be solved!!!!!  Grin

My hands are still shaking. Puh, what a game. But no new WR. Angry

No, I'm happy that a got this really great score. Grin

And I have the Vid of this game!!! I think, I'll start recording genius generally. In this level recording can't slow me so much down.

Yes, I'm happy with this new record. Everybody who wants the vid, please tell me.

My e-mail: gerowaelz@vr-web.de


And i just my fastest expert game: 63,21. A 62 would have been nice, but that's ok, too. Grin

Second modify: New Int record: 13,17 Undecided 12 would have been really nice!!!

A new Exp record was waiting for me, I knew it. I had several chances to get such a nice score (5 best score ever played). Finally I made it. Yes.

It was exactly 60,26, so not too far away from a sub-60, but I'm content with this score. Cheesy

Vienna Champion says ( Wink):

No, I'm not sick. But after Vienna I like playing Minesweeper again, too.
Also I like more playing the levels for the rankings instead of Tourny boards. And this one I really don't like.

4th sub-60, what shall I say?
After I got this nice score, I began to record again and recorded a 61 and a 62. I hope I record soon a sub-60 to show the world. Wink 8)

After I recorded 61 and 62s yesterday I got a 60,12s, which I recorded. Then I missed a 58s on last click. Sad

But then I got my 5th sub-60: 59,71s!!! Grin

And I recorded the game. 8)

An average time of 57,8 should be possible. And still I hope to break the Exp WR soon...

Some stats for those who are interested:
I have over 300 sub-80's. 103 sub-70's. 5 sub-60's.

My top 10 list for Exp is the following:

57, 58, 58, 59, 59, 60, 60, 60, 61, 61

I didn't thought that this is possible. But the 59s I uploaded is special, because I began with the top row (11-1). I guessed right, played the rest and got this score.
Normally I even don't play those boards (where I can start only with a row. I think it's much more faster to play with columns), because it's hard to finish them. Now I got a sub-60 on it. Nice!!! Cheesy

Btw, 7th sub-60. The rest of my top 10 is filled up with 60s. Grin

Today was really an unbelievable Nono day for me:

First I got 59x2. Never got 2 sub-60's in one day before.
After that I got a 57, I was happy couse I did a new top 5 game.

Until then I always recorded in the wrong time, so I had no vids of the 3 sub-60's.

And now...... 53,81s!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grin

4 sub-60's in one single day. And the best one, I recorded. 8)

I can only say:

Happy sweeping, I'm happy, because sweeping makes me happy! Cheesy

btw, I have 11 sub 60's now Grin

Right, Gero.  Cheesy I simply couldn't stop playing expert sharing my record with two people. Wink Being 4th to go sub-60 is very nice. BTW, I play a bit different than hexx's technique. I start with a good upper row. Happy sweeping to all of you.

NEW WORLD RECORD..........

11,39s!!! Nice!  Smiley  Cheesy  Grin
I even started Camtasia 2 minutes before, because I missed recording my 13s. The board was extremely cool, you guys. Mail me for vid. Oh, and BTW, nice brother fight in the top ten. Keep going on.  8)

Wow, Roland, what a score!!!!!!! Cheesy

You are unbelievable. Of course I want to see the vid. It's cool that you recorded it. And that you showed us that 11s is a reachable score. I'm still waiting for fu**in' 12s. Undecided

Keep improving, but don't overtake me. Or does the teacher gets better than his scholar again? Wink

Great score, Roland. I'd like to see the vid as well.

Unfortunately, with your 11, my own improvement from 16.93 to 16.15 is hardly worth a post...

Yep: As a new "milestone" in my career of almost one year of nonosweeping, I could finally improve my intemediate time from 16.15 to 15.21! Would have been an even greater day if not everyone had improved his record recently as well Wink.

Screenshot on my website soon.

Hey Luca, WHAT A SCORE!!!!!!!! Congratulations! Cheesy

I'm for 5 days not at home and immediately all others use this time to beat me and improve the own times. Argh!!! Shocked

The nice thing today was my first finished Exp game: 55,07.

Happy sweeping all.

HISTORY HAS BEEN MADE!!!!


47,31


5 days at military service, 2 days at home were enough for me, to break the sub-50 barrier. YAHOOOOOOO!!!!
And of course before that, lots of weeks and months.
And in 1 hour I have to leave home again to go back to my barracks.

I'm so happy.

I'm the first human, to sub-50 in Nonosweeper!!!


This feels crappity smackin' cool! Grin

Sorry, but no vid available. But screenshot is soon on. Cheesy

11.10.2004, 21:46 Beginner solved in 25 seconds (very first game at all)
11.10.2004, 21:58 Intermediate solved in 167 seconds (very first int game)
11.10.2005, 22:46 New personal intermediate record!

Today, exactly one year and 48 minutes after my first finished nonosweeper intermediate game, I was able to set a new personal record: small improvement 15.21 -> 15.10 Cheesy

It definitively was a good board (I needed only 23 clicks), but the special thing to mention is that I played hexx-like strategy of clearing the outer rows and columns and had to guess all four of them Shocked (screenshot already on my site)

1. Congrats Luca. You are unbelievable. Your Int times are really impressive. I would really like to see the screenshot of this game.

2. I was really disappointed when I came back last friday and saw that there was not a single re-post concerning my sub-50. I thought a sub-50 would cause more reactions. ???

Ok, my post was perhaps too showy. This might be true. But I posted this way, because I played the last 3!! months intesive Exp to get this score. And Luca and hexx were even close to this score, too. So i was really happy and excited when I got this score.
So if it was my way I announced my record... sorry. Undecided

Congrats Gero!!!  8) Maybe your post was a bit too showy but also it was worth it. I simply didn't reply, because I was so shocked, giving up my possibility to get new records. This score is way beyond my imagination and it really demotivated me. Also my time for other stuff than university slips away faster and faster. Sad Also congrats to Luca, I'd like to see the screenshot as well. Strange that the actual tournament score is worse than the intermediate WR. You guys don't put effort in it, eh?!  Wink

Just to inform that i improved my NF record on expert to
72.93s
Shocked and got a few good scores too. 8)
My TOP 5 scores are:
#1- 72.93  in  76  clicks;
#2- 81.68  in  78  clicks;
#3- 82.14  in  69  clicks;
#4- 82.60  in  75  clicks;
#5- 83.20  in  68  clicks.

Other relevant facts:
A) With 72.93s, i was fast enough to enter in the TOP 10. Wink
B) I completed a game in 60 clicks but the final score - 108.23s - wasn't that good. Tongue
C) I finished 47 games, so far. Cheesy

So far, I only had the opportunity to see some videos from Gero, and it's really impressive, it's some kind of another world to me. lol Wink

My eyes don't seem to see like yours, and I flag everything (except for beg! lol Grin ). But still, I think I can improve my times, and maybe get a good first time for the genius level.  Smiley

We also don't flag Intermediate.
So try this tourny without flagging.
Look at Strategy and hints. There it is described how to do it.

Happy sweeping!!

This tourny's board is really more dense than int level, so it seems obvious to play it NF.
Btw, my record on this board is much lower than my int record.  Undecided

I improved yesterday from 5-29-132 to 3-22-125!  Grin

my new intermediate strategy is the blue smiley technique - no clearing, just flag all and click blue.  It worked for this week's tourney so I tried int on it too.

beg and exp; I just got faster I guess from playing lots of minesweeper and nono tourney; it was the first time I tried the three standard levels in a month!

Hi Nikolaj,

congratulations! You deserve it. But maybe, sometimes I'll strike back. Some weeks ago, I had a 66 out of nothing, so on an easy board, a 61 is possible for me Grin

Btw, you've also caught the 800th post of this forum. Good job Smiley

56.69 on ultra-hyper-mega easy board (92 clicks - almost 100% flagging). It really should have been sub 50  Grin Grin Grin

@Stephan: well 10 sub 70 is not THAT much to deserve 62 Wink But if I understand it correctly you jumped from 81 directly to 63 so maybe I really deserved it  Wink

Congratulations Nikolaj!


My stats are quite different from those of Hexx!

My best (only for sub 52) clicks/s is 2,63
and I couldn't never go under 105 total clicks..

My best safe click is 59

What does it means?
I always flag everything
With Hexx stats I could go under 45s..
Is there something wrong in my tecnique?

@Luca: Your technique suffers from overflagging. If you nonflagged last part (let´s say last 5 or 6 columns) of expert board, you could be faster. Few months ago I decided to flag less, but unfortunately my skills weren´t sufficient to be able to increase my end-game speed. So I flagged almost 100% again, but these days I found out I regularly get sub 80s and nonflagging is not that hard anymore and my times are much better Wink so maybe some low 60s are waiting for me soon Cheesy. Oh and grats to 48  Shocked!

Guys, I have a little puzzle for you: Who might have finished his first beginner 1s game ever Grin Grin Grin?

Yes, it's me - and it was a nice jump from 2.28 down to 1.57 on an optimal board for someone who hates beginner level due to the rareness of totally empty rows! See screenshot on my website (http://www.stephan-bechtel.de).

@Stephan: Grats!!! I told you, you can do it  Grin. My best time is 1.89 - see, you are much faster  Wink. Keep going, 4 more won´t be THAT hard. After you fill your top 5 beg games with 1s, rankings will be relevant again Wink huge gap of 11,6 points will shrink to  5,2 and then... Who knows  Roll Eyes.

Hey Stephan, very nice score!!! 8)

I remember when you even thought getting 2s is too hard for you. Now you have 1s. Cheesy
And you are also the 3rd fastest beg solver behind hexx and Kire (he has 1,51 I think. Should be in the topic 1s). Congratulations!!

Thanks guys.

@Nikolaj: As you have set incredible expert and genius times, it would be very hard for me to overtake you again even if I had 5x 1s...

@Gero: Nice additional information. I must admit that I didn't know that my 1.57 is in #3 of the fastest 1 sec times ever!

Well, it's not 3rd fastest time, because I'm sure hexx has some more better times than 1,59. But if only one score counts you're the 3rd fastest beg solver. Smiley
But that's still pretty nice I would say.
Btw, my best is 1,61 out of 10 finished 1s beg games. I just played 10 1s to fill up my high score list. Wink

PS @Nikolaj: You can reach me today by e-mail if you want. Cheesy

Add: Just looked at some screenshots in screenshot section and saw that Kire posted his best beg game there.

Congratulations Stephan, I was always wondering when you'll find out that you can do it. BTW you're at least fast enough for 13s on Intermediate. I'm pretty sure. And getting 5x1s is annoying, but you're capable as well.

Oh no Gene, how could you do that? This means that I really have to play genius again Angry. This level takes too much time to play (in my opinion), so I don't like it much.

Funny that I currently have my best position in beginner level - the only in which I've never achieved a World Record.

Gene: Congratulations anyway, great performance!

Okay, no new genius record yet...

It has been 476 since I uploaded a personal record in expert level for the last time.
Stephan's 63, the former World Record, is history! First, I achieved a 61.68 on quite a "normal" board, and only a few minutes later, I did a nice 56.85 Shocked on a very easy board. But even if this board must be played in a sub-50 time, I'm very happy that I didn't mess up. Luckily, I started recording right after my 61, so I have a video of my 56 which can be found on my website Cheesy.

Seems to be a very successful sweeping day Grin!

@Stephan: Congratulations! With your 61 you equalled my top 5 expert average  Grin. If my 56 expert board was ultra-hyper-mega easy, your board is even two cathegories above Shocked Shocked Shocked! Just a little tip 7-5-1 gives 15  Grin

@hexx: hey why do you bother us with minor WR improvements? I really think you should set WR worth posting Grin Grin Grin Grats!

@hexx: 13 will come. And congrats to your incredible times!

@Roland: I'm still in "holidays", but in Germany, there is a 3-days weekend right now Wink which gives me the time to play a little bit more intensive.

@Nikolaj: Yes, I know that 7-5-1 is a guess-free expert row. But somehow, after clearing the empty row, I thought I have to clear the guess-free columns now. I didn't even look at the row numbers, so I noticed the 7-5-1 much later (much too late). Played worst possible, but at least finished, so I don't care very much!

15.04 --> 14.79 Grin

Yesterday, I've just played a few games of intermediate as the current tournament board took too much time - and out of nowhere, there was this nice 14. The screenshot of the very easy board can be found on my website after the weekend.

I've got another minor 6s improvement on Genius,
125.20
is now The score to beat.

Yeah, i'm a BIG FAT LOOSER Wink

Yay!  Cheesy

After deciding about 6 months ago I should easily be able to go under 200, and messing up every time I went close, I finally have: 191.25!

Which makes 5 new exp/genius times counting in my top 5s in the last week, with not all that much more playing than usual, since the change to my mouse settings and drivers...

Wow, I wonder what I could do with a better chair  Grin

@hexx: grats. It seems like just the other day you were aiming to reach 148. How much lower do you intend to go on genius?

@ Q

Present day, my goal is to break into the 2 digit barrier, perhaps sub-90. Who knows?! Wink

BTW, have you ever tried to play Int without flagging or you don't like to play NF?
It's so easyyyyyyy Roll Eyes , you will improve to 16s without playing that much! Smiley

I do occasionally try non flagging int, but my best is 29, I rarely get under 35. Whereas playing 'normally' I get high 20s or better pretty consistently, usually several 25s or 26s in a session. And I dont find int as fun as genius, so I don't really try that much.

I'm curious though how many other people in the top 30 or so dont use nf int. I must be close to the fastest now, not that that is neccesarily something to brag about

And...90 seconds?!? Shocked Well, I did ask....

@ Qetuth

I also use flags on INT... ALL THE TIME... I can't keep a mental picture of where the mines are without them... I only use NF on small tourney boards and Beginner... That may explain why our times are sooooo close on most of our stuff.

I agree with you that the Genius level is much more fun than INT. It also seems like we celebrate mediocrity by giving seconds on the beginner level a value 24 times greater than that of a second on genius on the main world ranking table .

I personally would rather say that I'm a great genius than a great beginner! (although at the moment, i would only say that I'm a decent genius player) Smiley I probably think this way because I can't for the life of me get a 1 on beginner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ARRRRGGGH!!!!  Angry

Anyways... I couldn't let you go under the radar with that new top 10 genius score!  Tongue (179)

@gene: actually, genius seconds are worthless on the main rankings table Tongue But I've played around with alternate numberings for the weighted boards and can't find one I like better, and in unweighted beg and int become useless except as tiebreakers (which is not neccesarily a bad thing  Wink )

For a while now I've have a spreadsheet with my own rankings. I couldn't decide on a system so I used 16, then sorted poeple by their average ranking over the 16. Incidentally, my last genius time caused me to pass you, going to 9.50th over your 9.75th. Your genius time took you to 8.81th over my 9.69th. We do that a lot. Oh, and hexx? You just went from 1.25st to 1.06st. Theres now only one category you arent winning: sum of 5 int times, you're a very slow 54! Hopeless, really...maybe you should try flagging?  Roll Eyes

Thanks...I actually set all 3 of those in the early hours of the morning when I could barely keep my eyes open. So now that's my new strategy, play while falling asleep.

It's hard to believe I have the 5th genius time: It was just the beginning of this month that I broke 200, and a year ago my best scores were something like 5, 40, 120, 300 from memory, and I didn't think scores like my current ones were ever possible for me. I hope that the scores on the best times boards dont scare off too many players,  as it must be hard for new players to realise how much improvement is possible.

@yariv: Is there a way, say by manipulating url parameters, to check old times? Or are slow old times not kept in the database? Being able to look at an individual players record history might be interesting (and embarrasing Tongue ), and the same for old top10 lists (eg, save a static one every 6 months or so).

@Gene: I obviously need a much more final final word. Congratulations. You're back ahead of me in my rankings sheet, but every time we do this it gets us past another person: Time to chase Stephan, then Nikolaj  Grin

@Nikolaj: Don't worry, there's no-one chasing you, you don't need to do anything Roll Eyes
Seriously though, have you ever tried taking time to solve genius with no guesses? I do that now and then when theres lots of interruptions around so I don't worry about playing a single game at once. Most genius boards (I tihnk about 75%?) can be solved by thought without guessing, and since I started doing this more often my genius times when I AM trying to go fast have improved a lot, as well as my rate of finishing them. So, 22 seems amazingly low to me

Follow that with a new personal best in beginner: 2.03.

Also, a 2 click board messed up at 1.4 with only 2 squares left to click. Previous best before last night was...2.75 that I had written down, and only 8 2s at all.

I ALMOST did some great times last night Sad

OK guys, whenever this topic becomes unlocked, almost immediately spam post appears Angry For me it´s annoying because I´m receiving mail notifications whenever new post appears here. Let´s lock it for a longer period.

If somebody wants to show his personal achievement in this topic, then he should contact me (or other admins) via email. I´ll unlock it or if he doesn´t mind his name not appearing as author of the post, I´ll paste it here. This message will remain always as the very last post, so there´s no risk anybody won´t know what to do.  Wink

Happy sweeping all
