Following my first attempt at the name game, I released that my hint code was rubbish (but really, I knew that at the time) and that it’s very difficult to guess a random name with so few clues.
First of all, the code has been improved. It will tell you how many letters you have correct from the first letter, ie first 3 letters or first 100 letters. Secondly, as additional help it can tell you every letter that is correct. This major addition should make guessing from scratch much easier. Version 2 of the name game never made it online as I was already working on version 3. Version 3 got updated to v4 since being posted!
