    Disputed ByBarthax
    Dispute Evidence / RationaleThis score is from the Directors Cut version of the level. I only realised the mistake after leaving staff and so could not correct it. Instead I got a near-perfect run to highlight the problem but by then TG was not worth bothering with so kept it to myself until submitting in this era. Near perfect run which probably drops 3-5K at most for 239125: http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthread.php/140472 .

    Magnus' 356650 should be on the Directors Cut variation at http://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=80410 .

    I still have Magnus' run buried in my loft (as I do all but a small number of runs submitted to me - some went to America for secondary verification) so if the above isn't sufficient, I'll have to dig that out to provide more evidence (which is fine - I've waited many years to correct this one and can wait some more).

    If you have the video then it would definitely be solid proof that the wrong mode was selected.

    The rules mention: You may play with or without "Extra Mutants".

    I don't know the game but I don't see you make that choice in your run. Can you explain if this option might produce more points.

    I agree with Swaggers that if you still have access to the video tape, that viewing it will provide the best proof. Are you able to digitize and post it?

    Good points. I could be the first to make a foolish claim. :P

    Are you on my radar?
    I'd rather be last on every game than throw my time away chasing only one score.

    @Barthax Have you had any luck excavating your loft?

    At this moment, excavating the loft occurs after excavating my youngest's book collection out of our bathroom. There's a difference between reading on the toilet and balancing boxes away from your head while on the toilet. ;) The reason her book collection isn't in the loft is 'cause the loft is full to the brim & the TG stuff is ancient loft content - right at the back. It'll be a year or more before I find the scattered deposits of former TG content, providing I can stop my wife spending long enough that we have other space in our house to bring stuff out of the loft in the first place.
