I have played a puzzle and I have completed it as far as possible (99%). It appears there was one piece missing. Is that possible?
The piece is certainly there but it can be overlapped by the image preview window or other pieces of the puzzle. Try to look under these objects by dragging the mouse.
It is called "menu trigger" and it is used to access some operations within puzzles such as playing, sharing, moving, deleting, changing properties of your private of public puzzles... Some operations can be done only if you are the author or signed in.
Focus on the right top corner of the puzzle preview and select Properties in the context menu. You can change the number of pieces, shapes, rotation etc. But you are not allowed to change this setting on the puzzles which were created by other users, you can change just your own public or private puzzles.
If you want to delete your puzzle, focus on the right top corner of the puzzle preview (there is a small square) and select Delete.
What is the difference between private and public puzzles and how can I move some of my public puzzles to become private?
Your private puzzles are not available to other users. These puzzles can be seen and played only by you. Public puzzles are available for everyone and are displayed in Explore. Every public puzzle can be shared on Facebook, Twitter or embedded on websites.
To move your public puzzle, focus on the menu trigger, choose Move and select a private album. If you do not have any private album, you can create it on the My Puzzles page.
Yes, you can. If you know their username, visit www.jigsawplanet.com/USERNAME to show all their public puzzles (e.g. if the user has username John, you should visit www.jigsawplanet.com/John). Or you can focus on the small profile picture under the image. You will see all the user's public puzzles.
Such a picture is inconsistent with the Terms of Service and it is not possible to share it. It is visible only to you and can be used only for your private purposes. It is not displayed to other users.
- Grayed out puzzle: it is not visible to other users. Copy it to a private album and the grayness will disappear.
- Grayed out profile photo: the photo is not visible for other users as well. Please replace it.
- Grayed out cover albums: others will not see it, set up a new cover photo for your album.
The puzzle contains randomly rotated pieces, it is more difficult. Read the Game Help to find out how to rotate pieces.
Yes, use the puzzle context menu->Play As->Custom...
Also you can modify address of a play page, add the following name/value pair(s) to the address:
|rotation||0 or 1|
|pieces||4..300, nearest possible value is used|
|savegame||0 (do not save/load a game) or 1 (save/load a game), use this pair, if you need to avoid saving/loading of an unfinished game, e.g. it is useful for teaching, if students share one computer.|
