Minesweeper



Stop The Timer :
1. When you start to play a new game, the timer is ticking...
Press Windows Key + D to show desktop.
Now come back to the game by selecting it from the taskbar. The timer is stopped!.


2. First click somewhere to start the clock. Then hold down the left and right mouse buttons and you should see a 3x3 square imprint on the board. Next hit the ESC key while holding down both mouse buttons, and the timer is stopped!

A neat little cheat :
Start Minesweeper and then move the mouse cursor into the battlefield (without clicking on anything). Then type on the keyboard: xyzzy and then press the Shift Key then press the Enter Key twice. You should now see a tiny little white dot in the top left corner of your screen - you will have to look hard as it is only 1 pixel in size, so is minute. Now, whenever you move the mouse cursor over a mine, the pixel will turn to your screen colour (and effectively disappear). This woks, so try it! Minesweeper will never be the same. 


To add sound effects :
Open Windows Notepad (Start > Programs > Accessories) and select All Files. Then open the 'Winmine.ini' file in the Windows folder using Windows Notepad or a similar text editor. Add the line 'Sound=3' to the end of the text file, Save and exit your text editor. If you add a subsequent line 'Tick=1', you'll also hear a bleep as the timer counts up.
