    Hi everyone. :)

    I have just started with programming in C++ a few weeks ago so I have not that much understanding of it. I have been given a project of making a Sudoku game,

    I have got my code to randomly choose a number and check it against the other numbers in the same row and column but i can't get it to check against the other numbers in the subgrid.

    Heres the main part of my code
    Code:
    int bad;
    int x;
    int i1;
    int j1;
    int i;
    int j;
    int n [ROWS][COLS];
    
    	for (i = 0; i < ROWS; i++) {
    		for (j = 0; j < COLS; j++) {
    
    		do { x = rand()%9 +1; bad = 0;   // random number
    		
                    for (i1 = 0; i1 < i; i1++)           // Checking against other numbers in the row
    			if (x == n[i1][j]) bad = 1;
    
    		for (j1 = 0; j1 < j; j1++)       // Checking against other numbers in the column
    		        if (x == n[i][j1]) bad = 1;
    				}while (bad);
    		n[i][j] = x; }
    	}
    
    	cout << "Sukodu Board:\n";
    	for (i = 0; i < ROWS; i++) {
    		for (j = 0; j < COLS; j++)
    			cout << n[i][j] << " ";  // Prints out the numbers
    
    I hope that you can follow the code.

    Thanks

    I have been testing different sizes of boards and the biggest it can do is a 6 * 6 because any bigger and it does not display anything. I think that this is because it just takes too long to calculate which numbers can go to the different spaces.

    Any ideas on how I can make it calculate faster so I can get a 9 * 9 board ?

    Thanks for you help.
