dear ThanatosX....

I didn't check your code but my ACC code produces output as same as yours.

you used " char board; "
try by increase the size of board[][] >8
Thanks.

Hey guys,

My algorithm is getting WA but its output is correct when trying all kinds of inputs comparing to UVa toolkit website.
Here is my code http://ideone.com/GwoGP

Thank you

### check the check

Posted: Fri Nov 12, 2010 11:06 am
in the problem check the check , i keep getting a WA,
i checked every element in the chess bored ,and check the boundaries of each element...
:S any idea ?
here is my code
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int i, j;
while(!con ){
count++;
con = false;
for(i=0; i<8; i++)
{
for(j=0; j<8; j++)
{
cin>>game[j];
if(game[j] != '.')
con = true;
}
}

if(con == false)
return 0;

### Re: 10196 - Check The Check

Nice problem, although it actually tests your patience and how much cautious you are ...May be I enjoyed solving this because I like to play chess If you get Wrong Answer, just try the sample inputs posted by jud (Thanks jud nice I/O) on page 2. Be careful when you are checking whether the pawn threatens the king or not. And the problem does not say anything about cases like:

Code: Select all

``````...b....
......P.
.....P..
........
....k...
........
........
..p....K
``````
The problem could have been better if it had cases like this. As you can see, the black pawn reaches the last rank and so it can be promoted to a queen. Now if it is promoted to a queen/rook the white king is threatened. However the output for this problem should be no king is in check(There wont be cases like this don't be confused. I'm just trying to say if the problem mentioned that if a pawn reaches the last rank, it would be automatically promoted to a queen.)

And follow stcheung's advice. His 5th advice is very important (Actually it saves you a lot of time and your code will be shorter so there will be lesser probability for error to creep in). I created a 40 x 40 char array and stored the board in the middle of my array.
