KMahjongg... Anybody know about this?


I was killing some time by playing KMahjongg while waiting for a download to finish and I figured something out. I figure it's a glitch, but when I paused a game>Game>Restart Game, it restarts paused and the time starts ticking again, but when I unpaused it, the time stopped and I "finished the game in 5 seconds". Got the top score to boot. Does anybody know if this is a glitch or a built-in cheat or what? Just kind of wondering.

I would call it a bug. You can report KMahjongg bugs by clicking on Help -> Report Bug -> http://bugs.kde.org/wizard.cgi

Haha! Only if there was a way you could submit scores to an online database...

I hate it when I'm playing and I am down to like 6 pieces and there are no more moves. Is there any strategy involved in this game? I think it's just pureluck what you end up with. If you clear it, then you clear it.

Well, I suppose there's actually a stratagy to it, but my eyes can't keep track of all the different tiles and take in what kind of "if I do this, then I can do that with what it gives me..." situations I have.

Oh, and if you run out of moves, you can always click Move>Shuffle and it'll shuffle the remaining tiles, in the same layout, but in a different order. You can solve every possible layout this way, but I think it takes away from your points if you shuffle.
