Error in Summer Games II Wii VC

This track for Fencing has been set to lowest is best (fastest victory) but based on the way the game show times and on the scores entered, it should be Highest is best (Time remaining).


I want to submit my score but even tho' is better than the other two, I would end up last place. In order to be 1st place I would have to send a really bad score.

    Does the metric/track title need to be editorially changed to "Most Time Remaining", rather than "Fastest Victory"?

    Unfortunately, the existing scores were submitted in 2009 so I can't see whether the players have submitted their scores based on what the game displays on-screen (e.g. as time remaining) or have manually calculated the actual speed of their victory.

    This will need a little more research. I do have this game at home so I can give it a spin but I need to be confident of how those existing scores were calculated.

    Thanks

    Hi Stephen, based on the scores entered, I'm positive they entered the time displayed at the end of the event. It does not take more than 1 minute to complete the event and it is very unlikely that they did the calculations sustracting the time. But liek you said, if you have the game yourself, give it a try.


    Thanks for answering.
