My plan was simple. first check if the zero is in the right place. Then see if the element is correct using a formula and adding a counter so i only do it until i reach the field where the zero should be. Somehow when i run the test that should win the game.. it asks me for more input, so i think Liam not successfully returning true for some reason :(

bool won(void)
{
    int counter=0;
    if (board[d-1][d-1]!=0)
        {
        return false;
        }
        for(int i=0;i<d;i++)
            {
            for (int j=0;j<d;j++)
                {
                if (counter<d*d)
                    {
                    if (board[i][j]!=1+j+d*j)  
                        {
                        return false;    
                        }
                    else
                        {
                        counter++;
                        }
                    }
                }

            }
    return true;
}

You have a typo. Either that, or you made an error in your formula.

        if (board[i][j]!=1+j+d*j)

  • i had a typo but it still does not work :( the formula should be (board[i][j]!=1+j+d*i) – hmmmbob Jul 5 '16 at 17:36
  • this is the error that i get, before that all checkmarks are green. :( 3x3.txt wins the 3x3 board \ expected an exit code of 0, not a prompt for input – hmmmbob Jul 5 '16 at 17:38
  • Not surprising. Have you worked out what happens when you get to the tile in the lower right corner? What value is it supposed to have? – Cliff B Jul 5 '16 at 17:51
  • i thought at that point i expect a tile with value 0 , which obviously is not what the formula would give me. I tried to avoid that corner by the usage of the counter. So it stops comparing before it reaching that final tile. – hmmmbob Jul 6 '16 at 2:40
