If you like your mazes java-flavoured, look at
absolutely everything and can edit a saved version to your heart's
content - remember to save the graphp.class file to your local machine
The maze is for the Bilby contest - a simplified version of micromouse
that runs on a maze of tiles, rather than walls.
(I got fed up with toting a suitcase full of walls around the world,
having to buy woos for a base in each city the contest was run in and
drill and paint it overnight before the contest! Carrying tiles and
selotape is much easier!)
It would take little effort to modify it back to the full mouse maze.
a wall-follower - change it a bit and you have a full solver.
There is an alternative version at
that does its graphics slightly diferently.
I have sent a zip file of an old Qbasic program I used for designing
mazes over the decades, with .maz files of heaps of contests. It has a
simple solver built into it. I'm sure it will be circulated soon.

Well, I've read a few books on Java, so that makes me a
Java programmer, right? :-)
Seriously, I'm a long time C programmer that has tried C++
a little and it appears I can make the leap to Java.
I'm looking forward to the release of your program.
I'd be interested in seeing a Beta version if possible.
I will say that I will not get to look at it until the
middle of August though. I've got a crammed schedule
between now and then.
