They're all roughly Friday difficulty or very slightly harder - solved in 2-4mins each. (would have been quicker but because you said they were difficult I solved them aiming for thoroughness rather than speed)

Thanks for reply and opinion..

I thought out pretty algorithm on advanced edges restriction, where more edges came into relation and I will be able to deduced contradictions without real trials (based on my algorithm design). After whole day of thinking and writing effective implementation I was dissapointed because I realised that it doesn't brings anything new for my solver in fact (after some tests). Probably it is already producted by combination of current methods. I am sure of correctness of new algorithm - I traced it..

I am interested in solving times for User puzzle #416. For me it is terribly hard (maybe I have not enough experiences). Also if you have some nice solution, post it here.. This puzzle is from my highest level of difficulty (without trying possibilities) and was generated in 0.6 sec..

I just solved it again, solving time ~3 minutes? The first time I did it I used a good exploration and solved it basically with trial & error. But the path I used can be easily deduced instead - there is only one valid configuration for the pattern with the 1s and 2s at the top of the puzzle, and you have to keep the loop from closing early. Once there, it's a completely routine puzzle (as is often the case with puzzles with too few clues - essentially, you just keep avoiding to close the loop early until you are done).

(How am I supposed to post a solution? A loopy savegame or something similar? I don't have the loopy string for this puzzle.)

To MondSemmel: Loopy savegame should be ok & the loopy string is:
10x10:c12c2c212a2f1c2232a2c0a3c1a0b0c3d2b32b21b2d3a2b2a32b1b0a3b3b21d

I'm not sure how useful it will be, but I've uploaded the solution to Megaupload: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=9WRNHXQJ
(If it's not yet possible to download, you might have to wait a few hours - I just uploaded the file.)
