    At 6:43, for example, your score is ending with x10

    I think the 00 or 50 ending has to do with the endgame multiplier - whatever your score is at the end of the game, being set to "Mania" difficulty multiplies your score by 5.
    Ah ok, I got you now. Thanks

    For those wondering, my score for the run before the multiplier is 1,340,380 - Mania difficulty does the 5 X multiplier after you finish the game.

    Any movement or questions from anyone on this dispute? Should be an easy YES vote since the score isn't mathematically possible on this scoring track.

    I.E...any score possible in this game (which all end in X0), multiplied by the 5 times mania multiplier cannot ever equal anything other than 5 or 0 in the tens digit place - this score has an 8 as the tens digit.

    Needs more YES votes presumably. Dave is pretty good about acknowledging threads once they've been brought to his attention, from what I've seen.

    There are enough votes now and so I will research some more and ask questions here if I need to.

    @HAN Please could you screenshot the relevant parts of the links you posted and upload them here? We do not want people to look at a concluded dispute in the future and see links which may be broken by then. Thanks in anticipation!

    Once we have this evidence here we will be accepting this dispute based on the dubious digits in the score. It is likely more than one typo occurred in this score.

    Certainly, here are the screen caps from the links I mentioned (this is the discussion on the French shmup page ran through google translate):

    2nd screen cap are all the Mania scores on the Shmup.com leaderboard, illustrating that all Mania scores that complete the game must end in "50" or "00" due to the 5X difficulty multiplier:
