Problem uploading high score

Post by pmuch »

Hello.
I have a problem.
I can\'t upload my high score. I think the problem is that my hiscore has 7 digits - it\'s about 1 200 000 points.
Could somebody correct this bug?

(actually it\'s not my high score, but my wifes - but it doesn\'t change the problem)

Pretty impressive... at double the No 1 spot set by gumby in January !

That\'s one heck of a wife you\'ve got going !
The stats are roughly double all round but without a single x3.
At 3608 (x3) compared to 1649 (x2) there is clearly much room for improvement and finetuning.
Great reflexes... serious fighter pilot material !!!

It\'s all good !

Actually she stopped playing because she didn\'t have more timeShe started pressing space without looking at the end. And she says, that x3 on 10th level is terribly difficult :-)

Bu the problem with uploading this score still persist.
Anyone has an idea, how to do this?

I guess you\'ll have to wait for the release of Blockout 2.5 !
Untill then ... keep practising.


It\'s all good !

make sure you dont use any obvious fake tools or do non-obvious \"faking\" .

faking without knowing could be that you play the game using some emulator - vmware, wine, virtualbox or such. those virtual machine tools may screw with the computer clock what results in slight timing differences. those will be detected and your score gets rejected.
also dont use too old PC hardware. if there are suspicious timings, your score wont upload.

another problem can be: your replay is too long for uploading. and for sure it might be that problem: if you play more than 50 minutes.. your replay file will be very big.
maybe jean luc will fix that issue (if thats the reason) for the next release.

My time was 55min 02sec.

I will try to reach more than 1.000.000 in less than 50 minutes. I think I can\'t move my fingers faster, but I will try.

Are you sure what is the problem?
- More than 50minutes OR
- More than 1.000.000 OR
- Both of them

well then i think its a problem with the size of the replay file. it is so long, that the online validation script gets an \"timeout\" from the scheduler. scripts on my server are only allowed to run for some seconds.
if you upload such a huge / long replay, it simply takes too much time to replay and validate your game online.
the only thing that will help is manual acknowledging by jean luc.
but as jean luc is currently under heavy workload, this may take a while.
but you should send him an email with your replay, then your game will me added to the highscore list.

Gratz for the 1.000.000+ scores :s_bravo:

FYI the \"original\" blockout had a rollover at 1M points (can\'t remember if it was the amiga or PC/DOS version, i played both...)
