"Still, I have other ways of telling whose scores are likely to be genuine, so please let me know if/when more suspicious scores come up!"

Well, the hacker has struck again! This time, not quite so subtle! Andrzej must have had fast fingers to achieve a one second in intermediate!

BTW, I'm working on producing a fake score using the URL source (for curiosity's sake). Iv'e made progress, but I'm working toward submitting a fake beginner 11, so you won't need to worry about me! I'll tell you if I am succesful.

Victory is Mine!

Or as Yariv so eloquently put it:

Time uploaded successfully.
Your score of 11 seconds is in position 268 of 1794.
You already have a better time in the table.

I successfully uploaded a totally bogus,  never played, 11 second begginer time.

I did it with this code:
http://www.nonosweeper.com/cgi-bin/uploadtime.cgi?name=Gavin%20Bauer&data=1D343B...

You are, however somewhat safe, because I played four eleven second games, before making that one, so it would be nearly impossible for a completely random person to fake a 1 that way. It would, however, be possible for someone who has actually gotten three or four 1's, to fake the last few. A rather scary thought if you ask me.

Hmph. Angry

Can't be helped, I suppose - still, I won't worry until someone can upload a score that they haven't previously got to a Pro account.

As Gavin says, it would be possibe to cheat by filling extra 1s, but if someone can get a couple of them to start with then they could surely have got more anyway... so far more people have got 1s (7) than have successfully hacked the game (4, to my knowledge - only Gavin with Pro) so its an achievement in itself! Wink

No software is 100% hacker-proof so I can only urge people to have the decency not to cheat - if you hack, let me know!  Roll Eyes

Also, I don't want to be regarded as a hacker or anything, I don't know the first think about hacking. I just beat beginner over and over, saving all of the codes so I could compare and analyze. I doubt any serious hacking/cheating will be coming that way.

@Gero: You dont have your exact time because is kind of boring to click hundreds of times the ok button for closing the window,do you?Yeah,I understand,its not easy to break records Wink

@Gavin: I want to inform you that the players who achieved several 1s on beginner are deeply attached to nono and will never cheat.If I do,for example, I shall stultify the long days and nights,spent in breaking records and having fun with this great game.So I trust the others and dont bother for these things Wink

Congrats to Luca for tying my Genius record. Being the first under 200 seems to be a though race.

How I start Genius games? I tend to start with the first or last column (sometimes row) if most of it can be figured out easily. Then I just search for easy patterns. When there are no more easy patterns, I solve the hard ones.

After I saw, that you got 19s I played int, too. I also got nearly 19s, but with the last click I missed it.  Cry That's really ****** up.

But congrats to you and of course to  Luca and Roland with their 68s.

Congrats to hexx and all other record breakers. Today I missed a great opportunity to sub-200 on genius. 188 seconds and 10 squares left. I miss a VERY easy pattern Undecided

There was only four more mines, and I had to hit one of them. Would probably have been about 195 seconds if I had been properly focused there. The race continues...
