Solvitaire - The solitaire solver  cards


Diagnosing problems

Here are some things you can try if you have problems getting Solvitaire to work.

Show Board Analysis at Start

If the problem relates to identifying the card layout then try setting board analysis at start on (from the debug menu). This will show you where Solviatire thinks the card stacks are located. These must be pixel perfect for card recognition to work.

Try with the default blue card background to see if that solves your problem. You can also try changing your screen resolution or magnification settings.

Problems reading cards are generally related to the screen resolution.

Diagnostic logging

The Solvitaire debug menu can be used to turn on debug logging. This is written to \users\%username%\appdata\roaming\solvitaire\debug\trace.txt. Start with a high level log and gradually move down the levels and you may find that the trace file identifies a problem that you can get around yourself.

Do not leave Solvitaire running continually with a low level debug. It will run much slower if you do. You will see a warning at startup if you forget to turn it off.
