I am trying to solve 8x8 puzzle (total 64 buttons). Similar to LightsOut, but in this rules are different. Goal is turn ON every button.
Button 1 is turned on/off by buttons 25, 36 Button 2 is turned on/off by buttons 25, 55 Button 3 is turned on/off by buttons 20, 58 ... Button 20 is turned on/off by buttons 4, 9 ... Button 25 is turned on/off by buttons 22, 59 ... Button 36 is turned on/off by buttons 42, 50 ... Button 55 is turned on/off by buttons 3, 24 ... Button 64 is turned on/off by buttons 29, 32
Full list is available here: http://pastebin.com/9b0MKXCb
I see that every button can be turned ON/OFF by any of 2 buttons (it's always 2).
I succeeded solving it manually by trial & error method, but I would like to do it proper. Program starts with all lights (buttons) turned OFF. Target is to turn ON all of them.
Is this still LightOuts problem? How can I solve it?
I've been asked why is this 8x8 puzzle. I called it that because there is total 64 buttons. Is this wrong?
For example. If I wish to turn ON button 1, I have to click on button 25 or 36. If I click two times on 25 or 36 state is restored - it's like nothing happened.
So if I wish to turn ON buttons 1 and 2 I have to click on button 25 OR button 36 AND button 55.
