Just tested my solver program with this Sudoku and it nailed it in 0.1312 seconds.
However, this is the longest my solver had to process so far, not even the Inkala puzzles came close. Nice one!

I still can't find a solution to this, anywhere on the net. I get many hits describing different techniques and algorithms but no final solution. Is there actually a solution? Can someone please produce it? Thanks.

I apologize for asking twice but I am new to the site and I am still to learn its ways. Please do clarify this; Is #49 solvable? Does a solution exist? Where can I find it? I have been trying a scheme but I always end up with two same numbers in the end, it seems that the puzzle is wrong OR I have to try a differenct scheme.

Thank you.

I'm not super familiar with that area , but it looks to me like the cleosst location listed on the chart is Farmington, with a date of May 1. If you tend to have similar weather to Farmington, I would use that date. You're right on the edge of the two groups. If it is a mild winter/spring and you are excited, I would follow the yellow schedule. If it is a cold winter-spring and you are more relaxed, I would use the green schedule.

ROOKS from the start !! It is April (or Andrew) Fool's Day ! So I would call this puzzle : AFD Monster.


Its solving begins as in Fata Morgana Loop 1 and 2. But this doesn't make it simpler ! (Still ROOKS)




Initial Eliminations :


Exocet : Base : (124)r46c4 [Target : (124)r2c6.r8c4], 124R258 => -59r2c6

or

Exocet : Base : (124)r46c4 [Target : (124)r2c6.r8c4], 124R28C29 => -59r2c6, -1r1c8.r9c34, -2r3c47.r7c1

If 124R5 is added, then :

Exocet : Base : (124)r46c4 [Target : (124)r2c6.r8c4], 124R258C29 => -59r2c6, -1r15c8.5r6c3.r8c4.r9c34, -2r2c4.r3c47.r46c7.r7c16
