thanks in advance.

Yeah, Ive noticed that myself....have sent in a couple since Christmas, but no show as of yet...even the "talk" on the question board has petered out...must be the New Year or something

I'm sure they are just behind schedule, maybe you should offer to help

We could try an experiment to see if it would work...

Two steps are required:

1. verification: This requires that a copy of the player's scores folder or file is dropped into a clean install of the game to see if the score is visible in the high scores screen. The game engine won't display a high score if there was any manipulation of the original game or file.

If a scores-verification group is set up then at least two people could independently verify each score.

2. posting: I need to insert, rebuild and upload the updated scores page to our website.

I can set up a text file format template for the data to be added to. This would save me a lot of time and I could then set aside time to update the page once per week.

So that would involve what, exactly??? (Not being a programmer or anything)

1) OK, I can keep a clean install of both games on my PC to do just that.
2) No problem either.

It would take some more volunteers - I'd say between 6 to 10 people - to do this (as I don't want to "certify" my own scores...)

Coax LWA? Teulk? You guys OK with this? Anyone else?

PLEASE POST HERE. Let's get this high score page up to speed!!!

Actually, I'm on the night shift this month, so I'll be unavailable (night-wise, anyway) until possibly next Monday...let me know if anything alternative comes up. I know how anxious everyone is for the up-dating of the site, and I sure would like to lend a hand where possible, so keep that in mind...you've got my ICQ, and I"ll leave it open as much as possible, so any messages can be left for me there..
