Anyway, the problem describes a set of vertices(points) numbered from $1$ to $N$, and a set of pathways $1$ to $M$, with pathway $p_i$ connecting two points $a_i,b_i$, taking time $t_i$. The goal of the problem is to find and print out the minimum time required to get from a specific point of $a$ to point $b$, along the pathways.
This looks like a Dijkstra's algorithm implementation... however there is a catch.
For every such pathway $p_i$ connecting two points $a_i,b_i$, not only is there a time $t_i$, there is also a hull value $k_i$. You travel by water along the pathways, and your ship has a hull $K$ to begin with. From point $a$ to point $b$, the sum of the hull values along your chosen pathway must not be greater than $K$, otherwise your ship will sink, i.e the pathway is no longer valid.
This passed $9/15$ test cases on the grader, which I am quite proud of for a first attempt. Time wasn't an issue as it usually was, but I am getting Wrong Answer.
I then realised that I cannot just save the minimal hull value for each vertex, as each valid path has a different hull value sum. I have to implement a sort of queue/stack like structure and distinguish between each path.
However, the second I do that, I get codes that score even fewer points than my initial attempt. Time Limit becomes an issue, and I get even more Wrong Answer test cases on the practice CCC grader.
I spent two days already on this problem, and don't seem to be making any progress.
Any help will be appreciated.
