Nice implementation of a very difficult coding challenge. Great start on the AI -- keep at it!
How do I jump over the blue ones? It doesn't seem to let me... Nice AI though!
After selecting your red checker, click on the blue checker you wish to jump.
Mmm, what about multiple jumps? After selecting red checker and click on a blue checker, only one jump then the AI take over.
Hmm agreed, perhaps it'd be clearer if you just always clicked on the space you wished to jump to?
Another point, the AI seems to get stuck (at least sometimes, perhaps all the time?) when there's just one of it's draughts left - just flashes constantly without doing anything. Is this a bug, or just a really clever tactic of taking an infinite amount of time to move so you can't win? :-)
Just played it again and it froze with two left this time. If you're having difficulty locating the problem or fixing it for some reason then just shout and we'll have a look at the source and try to help you out :-)
Very nice job, although i do see it making sacrifices when none are needed, and not taking pieces when it is safe. The double jump bug should prove tricky to fix, good luck and keep up the good work!
this guy is in my class hi its molly anyways its really fun but sorta easy to beat. however, great concepts I would have never thought of!
1) I have tried implementing a double jump method but for some reason it doesn't work all the time. 2)Sometimes the AI freezes because it there aren't any moves left for the computer to do that it thinks are safe, I've tried making a mechanism that allows the computer to register when there aren't any more available moves. For some reason the method doesn't work right so the computer thinks there aren't any moves left and does a stupid move when there actually are some safe moves. Other times the computer thinks there are moves left when there actually isn't any and causes it to freeze.
Picking up this project again, will probably see a few updates as soon as I figure out what my code does... This project is before I started commenting my code with a passion (at least in critical areas). :D

won't let me jumpover the blue
