    Default Strange Bury Points

    Today a user sent me an email saying the Parlor Rankings were foul. I checked them out. As you can see big difference from 1st to 6th.

    Code:
    1 emzie F emzie de best 481,649,340 
    2 Dover M Funeral Shumeral 9,819,651 
    3 Colette F harbor town 9,744,709 
    4 jobberman M beats u up 4,918,637 
    5 quatro M Funeral escort 354,575 
    6 Zultan F Zultan's Cryptorium 88,035
    I'm going back to the older version and more stock luck to see if this helps.

    I don't believe that these very high scores are caused by worms or bots or hacks, which is an idea brought up in a previous thread.

    Have a look at this forum.

    What may be happening is a clever exploitation of the existing FQ rules. If a player's PSY score is very high and their luck is too, it is possible to sell customers a ridiculous amount of crap. To further complicate things, third-party scripts may upset game balance in unpredicable ways.

    I wish that FQ had better mechanisms for losing luck. This is why I created the black cat mod. At least players with high PSY scores could face some difficulty in selling later in the game.

    I did google for hacks, trainers and worms for FQ, but only found serial number cracks (which I doubt work, since Seth's game uses a license server model rather than a local serial number).

    jjohn,

    I did have increased starting luck so that could be part of the problem. I also was running the "hot new beta" version.

    I have went back to .95 and standard luck. Now I just need to wait for the game listing page to update on rtsoft.com .

    Default Don't blame luck and psy

    I always play to 11 psy and usually have 100 luck. That doesn't account for the high scores. A good player will have high psy and luck. I have the highest average sale and the highest number of plots on my server. Yet, I am trailing by 64,000 burial points. Tell me that is because of luck? If I am not being outsold or out buried, how am I losing?
