You are right, but it is notable that the one who has the bonus always is a fast solver, often with *. Either luck or many threads?
Or there is a clue?

We are, for sure, missing something here. We played with this for a couple of hours this wonderful Saturday morning, in front of a mug with coffee, but we can't get close to any number you guys talk about... We think that our understanding of the puzzle is probably wrong.
Giving up (for now), and moving to do some real work. Good luck to all who are stubborn enough to hunt for solutions and stars! Last fiddled with by LaurV on 20200215 at 03:25

1) generate a random configuration 2) Test it 3) If no solution found go to 1 Unfortunately, the solution space is extremely sparse, which makes it challenging to find the right configuration.

Where do your digits come from? Have you calculated the fraction of yae9911 or have you used the formulas of Althoen etc. for the empty board? Apart from that I get many solutions with error<5*10**(7) and some solutions with ...*10**(8) or ...*10**(9). My best combination yields 66,978705007997 (error = 4,42*10*(10)). Unfortunately this combination doesnât help at all to find better solutions.

[25,24] 42,265... [26,25] 66,978705008 (error = 4,42*10**(10)) [27,26] 66,98667..... (error = 8*10**(3)) That are jumps, no finetuning is possible. What is your best value gotten by finetuning?
