The devs want your suggestions to improve the leaderboards !
We would like to give you a chance to make a better worl... LEADERBOARD!

We’d really like to have you feedback concerning them, and we also believe it’s a good opportunity for you, as players, to make them the best as possible.

Our ears (eyes, actually) are open to everything!
We will do our best, but please keep in mind that we also have technical restrictions.

Um, maybe if we want to see if someone got a high score by being fast or by not dying, we could click on their name and get it to say what their time is, their deaths, and how much pollen, helys and pets they found?

Maybe a tab that shows your friends' scores if that's possible, but it wouldn't do me much good because none of my Steam friends plays Fly'n, damn them. Don't know much else to suggest.

Oh, and if you want to make the leaderboards viewable in the cocoon, maybe put them in the illustration box, where you display them by clicking a Leaderboards button. That'd be handy.

I agree with LTK, viewing them from inside the cocoon would be fantastic. More information other than just a flat score display would be great too. I think it's assumed that the higher scores have collected everything without dying, and that their time is the separating factor, but it would be nice to know for sure.

We are working on yours idea.We already succeeded to add a view from the option menu ( you can now view LB from the cocoon or any other level. You can also watch LB from other levels)

Add more info in the leaderboard seams essential, but such an improvement can't be retroactive. So there will be a lack of info in score already entered ( and I know that Turbo add made some high-score that are barely unbeatable ^^).

To have an idea I can give you the calculation to get score from data.

Wow, that's great news. Viewing the leaderboards easier is really the only change that I think was necessary. The extra information would be a bonus if it could be implemented nicely, but not being able to update the current scores sounds like a pain.

Have you considered resetting the leaderboards to introduce an updated score display? I know people have worked hard to get their scores on the boards already, myself included, but if a reset is necessary for their scores to have all the information recorded, I don't think I'd mind. The part of this game I enjoy the most is running each level multiple times to get as high a score as possible, and there's always room for improvement, so a leaderboard reset would really just be another excuse for me to replay the levels. I understand that it would be a bit of a drastic measure, but I think it's worth considering, and I'm curious to see what other people think.

Also, I was working on level 5-1 the other day, and the leaderboard said "data unavailable" at the end. Is that related to the work being done on the leaderboards, or was my connection acting up?

That was probably a connection failure. Unfortunately, the only way to see the leaderboards currently is to restart and finish the level, but, it will soon be updated ! With a lot more things to come ;)

Hmm, I'm still getting "data unavailable" when finishing levels. I tried multiple levels from different worlds, and I don't seem to be able to see the leaderboards.
Tholank Nov 22, 2012 @ 10:23pm 
No update on leaderboard were released in the last patch. I must be a connection faillure. When that message arise it means that the game can't reach steam's data.

We thought to clear the leaderbord but we want to avoid that solution, It could be frustrating if you can't reach your best score again.
Turbo Nov 22, 2012 @ 11:01pm 
I hadn't restarted Steam since the previous update went live. It must have been a version mismatch, and it wasn't accepting my version. I can see the leaderboards again, hurray.
Tholank Nov 23, 2012 @ 12:39am 
great ^^

Forgive me. I'll opt in to the beta today and try it out. Climbing up the leaderboards in this game gets addictive.
Tholank Dec 2, 2012 @ 4:33am 
no problems ^^
LTK Dec 2, 2012 @ 9:40am 
I just played a few levels, and the leaderboard works great! It fills in all of the new stats. Although I'm still missing the number of Helys you finished the level with, is that also going to be included?
Tholank Dec 2, 2012 @ 9:52am 
To be honest... no . The real usefull information is time ( for the best scores ). We didn't plan to add this info... we forgot a little this thing ^^.
