Online Scores not working

Postby Reaper » Tue Feb 15, 2011 3:48 pm

Online scores stopped working for me many months ago, around when the forums all vanished.
Theyve never started to work again for me, are they still down or have I got some issue ?

Im running GRR on steam, it says Steam version 118 at logon. When the game loads it says accessing servers...
but I dont get any msg saying it cant find them. If I goto high scores only local are shown and pressing C it looks
for the server but then says "Ooops Server Error !".

Ive also disabled and shutdown my software firewall aswell to make sure it wasnt that.

Hi Reaper,

there's nothing wrong your side, it really is the "server" down.

I yet have to fix that thing but I am just now working on some "updates/improvements" of the score things.

There is going to be "more scores and more stuff" soon, so keep an eye.

suspicously high scores at a very low level :(

Oh dear the way scores work is highly encripted and such, I may add an 'extra security' this time on the thing but I'd say is quite unlikely someone tampered with them.

Oh I am not abandoning you at all, actually yesterday I was ( finally ) re-working on the whole score framework/interface and finally it starting to work "into the new thing" which now will also include "achivements".

One of the ( new ) problems for me now is that the SW begins "naturally for a touchscreen device" ( and it works lovely on a PC with touchscreen ) but it has to be "readapted" for a non-touchscreen thing .. which is a bit tricky.

Do not forget that in terms of power ( graphic ) and such a PC is always "lights years ahead" comapred to a iOS thing so it would be foolish to forget about it.

In this moment Yak is nearly full time on iOS and me I am really full time on PC ( for a thing or another ), I am not showing any WIP I'll begin to show things ( to testers ) when they will be 95% completed, which is going to be quite soon.
