Something is up with leaderboards ... just not exactly sure what specifically yet.
Missing From Completed Level Board:
Ok, so for some reason, I am missing from the leaderboards in specific levels. Upon completing the level as Meat Boy, I am STILL missing from the leaderboard. So I decide to re-complete the level using Alien Hominoid. Doing so allows me to appear on the board ... but the character that I completed it with, as noted on the leaderboard, is incorrect (Ogmo for some reason). Note, I am playing with my save that I've had for years ... maybe this is due to the wiping of the boards or beta leaderboard server swapping my save (pure speculation).
Random Crashing After Viewing Board:
Also, since I have been opening the leaderboards often to check various stats, the game has been crashing a lot shortly after closing the leaderboard screen. So far I've seen it crash after viewing leaderboards when:
- Selecting "Start Game" from main menu
- Entering a level
- In the middle of playing a level
- While flipping between leaderboards (via 'Y' button on controller)
I haven't had ANY random crashes during gameplay until I started testing leaderboards ... something is up ... I'll keep digging.
Strange Numbers / Inconsistent Results on "Friends Best Times" Leaderboards
When viewing "Friends Best Times" Leaderboards I've seen some strange results that can show up. I'd like to group them into the following states: Normal, Zeros, and Garbage. I've seen this in the specific level leaderboards as well as the overall leaderboards. Here are some screenshots:
Specific Level Leaderboards (time)
*note that the garbage number is always the same every time I see it.
Overall Leaderboards (levels)
I thought this could all be related code-wise, so I figured I'd group 'em together.
