Word: that was my third match, I could do better as well. Sine: I'll pm you my routes. FYI, my route to the first four zones was the same, but after I need to get creative.

i got 925 one round, but on average I would get 4500 a match, using sinewav's method, though tweaked a little bit sometimes i had to be creative :P, but usually did not get more than 4 zones.

LOL! I tried this again, and only got 8000, now I see how good of a score mine really was.

Yeah I know! I really think you got lucky that time. I have a hard time consistently scoring over 7000.

I can put up a second server. I'll see what I can do. I'm out of town away from my files right now but I should be able manage it.

Or maybe just release it as a local game config, like you did Original Arcade. ('Course, it would be pretty easy for people to cheat their scores then.)

I think you should make the walls higher. And am I mistaken, or have you simplified the map since just a couple nights ago?

there are 3 different maps, Also you would have to have a trunk based client for his configs to work, as it uses CONFIG_ROTATION

Yeah, I'll release the settings later this week. I don't care about people cheating, I'm happy people want to play. I can always check the logs to see if the score is real - like I did with Mkay-1's score (and was shocked to see it was real! :o ).

kyle is right, there are 3 maps, each one having a little more room than the previous. That's the part like "Joust." More enemies, a little more room to maneuver.

I hate this server so much. I really do. It makes me feel so unsatisfactory.

I've got a couple nice patterns, not sure if I just got lucky a couple times. Still working on a good way to manage the green levels (having a non-green tail helps, who would have figured!)
