    Hey guys, I figure it's about time to do something fun around here. Here is the deal: the first person to gain 500 points from today onward will be awarded 500 bonus AtD points in an updated code.

    Basically, take a screenshot of your current amount of points and post it here. Then once you have gained 500 points, post another screenshot here to prove it. You have the next few weeks to do this.

    1st to finish: 500 bonus AtD Points added to your code. Winner: Naro

    2nd to finish: 350 bonus AtD Points added to your code. Winner: Herian

    3rd to finish: 250 bonus AtD Points added to your code.

    I'm not stupid lol. It's impossible to gain that amount of points in one day. And especially within like 30 minutes. I will take 847 as your current amount of AtD Points. When you get to 1347 post it. No cheating.

    Oh,Mr Dark,I have 0 point now and I participated in this activity.Then I gained 500 points in 10 minutes or even less.What would you do next?Do you believe it?

    Add a special code for this then.If someone wants to participate in,give him/her the special code and then that person uses this new code.When there's 500 points,put a screenshot or give a PM to you concluding the code then.
    Besides,add this to the in-game hint and tell them how to gain points faster.

    One more thing,make the points more useful then,not "VISUAL ONLY".Make the collection of the points worth it.You could refer to NotD then and see how its points work.Old players are very important if your map is to proceed.

    Mfdsrax2, that is avoided by me having logic! I know it is impossible to post that you have 100 points and then 20 minutes later post that you have 600 points. It takes about 10 games to gain that many points.

    I'm not sure what you mean, but if you think your code didn't change look at it carefully. When you load it in game you will see that it indeed changed to 1008 points.

    Yeah, I know.
    I was just wondering, if you post it here won't anyone be able to use it? or does it check names? :)

    Oh of course it checks names. No one else will be able to use your code. It actually has 2 pretty good security features in that tiny code. I had to sacrifice maximum security for optimal code length, but I don't think anyone will complain since 8 characters is much easier to copy than 16 or 20. Anyway just to be safe I'll message it to you instead. We don't anyone figuring out my method ;)

    There are any methods to figure out?

    Took me 10 minutes to get the code 11112uSE. Still need to test if it works though but you should get the idea just by glancing at it. For people other than Darknite who already knows, that code is worth 78 points.

    Also why are the codes player name case sensitive? Remember you can change your account case at the login screen without making a new account.

    I would advise killing off 1 name character and replacing it with a randomly generated encryption character. This would prevent people from manually modifying codes. Additionally you should combine the name protection with the checksum system giving 2 characters which protect the code for name and contense which are near impossible to predict (the new patch natives for string hashes and such allow you to do this easilly). Finally perform base conversion on the actual number to up it from the usual decimal system you are using to a base 64 system, this would cut the code length by atleast 1 character (or allow more range) and make it harder to guess.
