  1. Hi folks! First off, yeah this may be the lamest title. But it made you look anyway! Edit: Now updated! With step-counter, reset button and a few GUI-tweaks. (the step-counter is cheating! It's calculated in advance...) I recently thought a screenshot of a finished maze may be smart to show, instead of only my long story and code. o=path, x=wall. Here it is: I started making my own implementation of the A* pathing script in a larger project, inspired by Toady's work. (But made one from scratch myself anyway ) After the A* pathing script was working (not cleaned up yet) I wanted to test it. Unfortunately I got no good, randomized, maze lying around that also had the format I needed. So I made my own maze generator! I did a few hours of research on the matter and then a few evenings of scripting. For the people who are interested, one of my problems was that I needed 'one-cell' thick walls. Most maze generation have 1 pixel thick walls drawn by a line, that could be opened if a path is needed. The solution is so simple, I needed this guy to tell me. Click here for my inspiration source. This generator can be used with different sizes maze, even uneven ones! Just set the width and height settings. FYI, it must be odd numbers for this maze to work with it's containment walls. It's the 'simple' Depth-First Search, with backtracking. And without further ado; my a-maze-ing generator!: #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- AutoIt Version: 3.3.12.0 Author: A-maze-ing generator Script Function: Generates a maze. In the $xy[$i][4] is the maze in array form.

The 'slow' generation is intended because it looks cool. Comment out the Sleep line on line 157 for a fast generation.
  2. This is my maze generator. It creates a maze useing the Recursive backtracker witch i found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maze_generation_algorithm#Recursive_backtracker It'll save the finished maze in the a folder with the name Mazes in @scriptdir as Maze (Seed).bmp where Seed is the seed of the maze and size is the size. It usees the Bitmap Libray by evelertoaster find it here: Thanks to MvGulik for cleaning the code. Here's a picture of a finished 25*25 maze: The green dot is the start and the red dot is the end. It can also solve the maze. Here's the solution for the above 25*25 maze.
