I've started publishing my large puzzles in two sizes, 600 and 260 pieces. If you prefer a different size, just drop me a line in the comment box of the puzzle you want in a different size.

If anyone is interested in creating the same type of flame fractals I use for my puzzles, I use a free app called JWildfire (http://www.jwildfire.org/) developed by Andreas Maschke.

A few people have asked me how to get started on JWildfire, so here it is:
If you don't have Java on your PC yet, get it first, because JWildfire won't run without it: https://www.java.com/en/download/. Then download the free JWildfire app: http://www.andreas-maschke.com/?page_id=351. That's also the website where they provide a video tutorial and other useful tips for beginners and advanced users alike.
If you don't want to spend a lot of time reading/watching tutorials, there's a quicker way to create your first fractal: open JWildfire and select "new from scratch", then in the "transformations" window on the right select "add" and "nonlinear". The "Var1" default in the drop down menu is set to "linear 3D", which makes a great basis for all kinds of fractals, but you can choose whichever one you like. Then hit the "MutaGen" button to your left in the "navigator" window, and "add from editor" to get 25 mutations of the original variable. If you see a fractal you like, click on the fractal once, then "To Editor", so you can change the size, lighting, position, etc. of your fractal in the main view (if not, double-click on one of the fractals in the Muta window to create another 25 mutations, etc, until you see one you like) Once you are ready to turn your fractal into an image, select "Render Fractal" and save it in a folder of your choosing. Once the fractal is rendered, a window displaying the finished fractal will pop up.
Have fun, and let me know if anything's unclear : ) Cheers, Eddie

Update on Flash Player (Oct-2020):
Adobe, the company that created the flash player decided to stop distributing it after December, which effectively means that the flash player will no longer exist, and any flash-based content (including the Jigidi solve tool) will be blocked from using it. So after December, the new HTML version will be the only one available on Jigidi.


I joined Jigidi on 3 September 2015 and was last seen on 24 June 2021. I've solved 4020 puzzles (1.9 daily) and put together 2114917 pieces (997.2 daily)
