High scores screen
« on: February 17, 2012, 03:41:03 PM »
Yeah, cant be bothered to make a mantis account, I'm a lazy ass.

Anyway heres the deal:
When you first open the high scores, it is sorted by score. However, if you close it and then open again, the sorting gets all messed up. Since there is no way to manually set the sorting,with enough games played it becomes quite impossible to navigate the high scores screen.

On an unrelated note, scores arent very important right now because the primary factors are ships made and ships killed. There is no scoring system in place that rewards successful guerrilla tactics, guile, and low-AIP victories. It may not even be possible to properly "score" this game, unless the score were simply based on the campaign setup and whether you win or lose.

I've many times wished for the tooltips on the campaign setup to tell you exactly what each minor faction and modifier does to your score (if anything), but then I remember that score isnt really a big deal, and move on.

Unless the score system is ever revisited and revamped, I'd just treat the achievements as your score.  :)
Time to roll out another ball of death.
