Suggestion on all-time and season scores

Post by RichardIII » Sun Jan 22, 2012 2:12 pm

Jake: just a suggestion. I think it would be good to get rid of duplicate best scores on all best score screens (all-time and current season). It's really kind of silly to have 4 or 5 same scores from the same player. Why not just post their best score only, and let someone else have a spot on the big screen? It would also allow those guys (or girls) to compete against their own high scores as well as everyone else's. I'm not saying to only allow one -20 score for example, I'm saying allow only one -20 score per player. Just a thought, not a rant. :)
Another idea would be to prefer the latest score to the earliest score. Right now, the list is set up to always post the oldest score when there is a tie for "last place" on the screen. I think it should be the reverse of that such that the latest -20 is the last one posted and the oldest one "drops off". Again just a suggestion, not a rant.

Thanks for the suggestions Richard. I'm probably going to do that for the next golf game once I get online best rounds working, but I'll have to keep it the same for GL Golf. I know several users like to try to capture an entire leader board, so changing the system may upset them with their previous scores. I could however extend the list past 20 to 40 or so fairly easy. As for the sorting of the ties it's just an alphabetical order sort of each line, so the older dates show up first. Again for the new golf game I'm working on I'm going to do it different so I'll keep that in mind.

not exactly the same question, but mine is having to do with scoring on the Best Rounds board.

I recently scored a 48 on Breakers, and then 2 days later also scored a 48. One of them appeared, but the other didn't. I always do the same routine of submitting the scores, even if they're not low, this way I can see stats on myself.

What happened to this other score? ANy ideas.

Thanks

I'm not sure. Were the two rounds played directly after each other by chance?

I looked through my sever logs and I see the first 48 as well as several other rounds, but that second one is missing! Not exactly sure what happened there. If you have that issue again and want me to manually post it, send me a screenshot of your scorecard to support at nuclearnova dot com and I'll add it.
