Can you name a game score that has changed so i can look in to it, i have extensive logs and can see what's going on but i need details or examples.
Check the screen shots against the txt score they should be the same. I have scanned though many scores and see no random changes so far.. Melon64 has not sent out a update email for months so i only get to read messages when i check the site. email me with bugs would be quicker use links so i can find the issues quickly.

I have been working on bringing https support to the server and we are now serving both http and https check it out.

https://cbm8bit.com as the sites not a canned joomla or word press type site this has been a challenge mainly due to the many retro sites we host
for free for others that require http and stability. :) Ahhh to be free of them :) but then they would be gone..... Bugger that....

Check my Saboteur (C16) score, Or Turbo Outrun (C64). It's done it about 4 or 5 times to me now.

Edit : It's not that it changes, It just puts the wrong score down, For instance, If the Saboteur score was 35000, It would either put 34999, or 35001. :/

Is it always just 1+ or 1- does this happen on the uploading of the score or just changes over i corrected the Turbo Outrun score.

Can i get other players to check their scores now and then look the same changes just keep en eye out.

I'll look into this now, the only process that makes ongoing changes to the database is the addition of points for karma 'etc' and votes.

https is marching on the web drive homepage should be pushed this week, giving every user their own personal homepage, image gallery and file share page. http://cbm8bit.com/webdrive/usersname or alias that can be set in your users profile settings page. We can also create a subdomain for your homepage http://usersname.cbm8bit.com or alias, images and files must be marked as public to be publicly available on your homepage so only files you wish to share will be available on your web drive. Your homepage will be editable so users can create a project web site as long as it's retro computer themed not 18+ and so on. There will be a WYSIWYG interface to edit the homepage as usual feature will be user driven...

Fingers crossed :) shane@cbm8bit.com
