@Tom - when reworking the Arcade, can you keep these thoughts in mind? Or perhaps you have even better ideas.

@yogert96 that can't work as highscores are unique to each game. I'm the only one who can update the game.

Memory editors, like Cheat Engine, are fairly easy to use. But a simple clever modification to your score variable could make the easy edits impossible. For example, you could store your score variable in a string concatenated with some junk characters. When you submit or display the score, just remove those extra characters.

This would make the process of finding the actual memory address to hack almost impossible...Magistross2013-04-12 23:43:37

[QUOTE=sqiddster]Anyway, it seems some chap has made multiple accounts or done something strange, taking the top high score spots on my game, 'Go Faster' (link in my sig). Scores this high are incredible difficult, maybe even impossible - either someone has spent hours and hours playing with multiple accounts just to get the top score (not likely) or they've done some hacking :)
[/QUOTE]

@Squiddster - did you PM or ask these people if they cheated? I'm sure they would tell you honestly... ;)

I know this sounds stupid but... either way you should be proud!!... that someone invested so much time on your game in order to hack or train to reach that high score!!

@Manley23 I have a hard time believing they would even check PM's as they aren't active in the site ;)

@vila4480 my thoughts exactly :D
