Hello, Theoretically, if you run the game in a virtual environment that perfectly decreases the machine timing, it won't be possible to detect cheating. The only solution would be to do an online check while playing. The score you registered has a good timing check but not perfect, so it is possible...

I'll add the management of arbitrary screen resolution in the next release if SDL allows me to do that ;).
I let you informed...

Hi Renato ;) Yes, it is always possible to change some values in memory while playing the game but there are other checks and I prefer to accept score from hackers, mark them and remove them later. It makes the cheating more difficult. Here is the 2 last detected hacked score: (score offset in bold)...
