Hey guys! This is something I've been working on for quite some time. This is basically Minesweeper, but made to look exactly the same as the original Windows XP version. Every pixel in the window is exactly the same as the original game.

The gameplay may have some differences though, and maybe a few bugs. Enjoy!

If you want to compare it to the original, you can download it here.

(PS. I ripped the assets from the game and they're owned by Microsoft, so try not to share this anywhere where they can remove it)
(PPS. I'm not entirely sure how this works, but just to be safe, don't.)

Cool :cool:

I've found a problem. When clicking with the middle or left+right button on an uncovered cell that shows a number N, and it's surrounded by exactly N *marked* covered cells, the remaining unmarked covered cells that surround it should be uncovered. Of course, if the marks were wrong, that leads to a boom.

That's fundamental for speed playing.

I noticed the exact same thing, which should also work when the mousewheel is pressed, so I decided to try and code it myself. You didn't include a license so I may not be allowed to do this, so I hope you won't mind.

Oh! Wow, I didn't even notice this feature existed. I had no idea what the cells-around feature was for, but I added only what I have seen. Thanks!
