Hi Anton and all Planetary Defenders ;), Sorry for the delayed response but I'm a bit more busy in those days...

Thanks for the report, It should be fixed now...just reload the new version using View desktop

That is not a bug, all scores in the hi-score table should be exact. It is just a side effect of "scrolling" score numbers...this effect is a bit confusing when you are hit more targets in a little time before game over so the on-screen scrolling numbers are a bit delayed...especially the tens and ones. I decided to remove the scroll code to eliminate this optical confusion ;)

Good idea! So I implemented it in the updated version ;-) You can find it here: desktop/sites/cyphre/planet defense or just: do

Thanks for your feedback! Let me know any other possible bugs in the new version... enjoy it! Cyphre NOTE: this version was tested only under the latest View betaversion ( view1208031.exe). You can find it here: Please, write me if you want also updated version for the official one year old View 1.2 so I can patch it when I have some free time...
