Jigsaw Puzzle is a traditional jigsaw puzzle game. Use your own images and create unique puzzles each time. A java implementation with sound and save/load ability. You can use pictures with the extension ".jpg" and ".gif". The program had no problem to read my pictures from the DSLR camera, with the biggest pieces (60 pixel setting) it ended up into more then 3300 pieces! With the smallest piece setting (20 pixel setting) it ended up in more then 30.000 pieces, but then I had a problem with the Java Heap! The program can also rotate pieces to make it more difficult. I had a lot of fun with it and had to downsize my first attempt in order to make a picture for this page.
Installing Jigsaw Puzzle
Download the file jigsawpuzzle.zip. Create a folder(directory) "jigsaw" or something similar which fits your needs. Unzip the zip file to the new created folder(directory). That's all! It is still a beta, so there might be problems, but I didn't see problems, with normal operation the bugfile stays empty.
The used jigsaw.cmd file
Jigsaw Puzzle works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have made a "jigsaw.cmd" file with the following contents;
@echo off set CLASSPATH= set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: jigsaw] cd [drive: jigsaw]\jigsaw java -Duser.home=[drive: jigsaw]\jigsaw -Xmx640m -jar jigsawpuzzle.jar 2>jigsawbugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Jigsaw Puzzle with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced by real drive letters. Adjust the file from the distribution below, ie. different drive and directories. Save "jigsaw.cmd" and copy it to the "jigsaw" folder (directory).
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jigsaw]\jigsaw\jigsaw.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Jigsaw Puzzle". The download also has an OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 Jigsaw Puzzle icon: jigsawpuzzle-ecs.zip.
