Update suggestions

Suggestions for the next update:

1)Enlarge the capture zone for hitting the reset button. I fire 1-2 shots on accident trying to hit it.
2)The crosshair memory shouldn't stick when you hit reset. This defeats the purpose.
3)Enlarge the size of the crosshairs. With your finger on the screen, you can't even see them! If there was crosshair memory (see #2), you wouldn't be able to see what you were doing!
4)Fix the scores so that the game score matches the Feint score.
5)Remove the 2 hacked scores at the top of the leaderboard. The first legit score is #3.
6)Why don't completely intact dolls register as a target hit after hitting a bomb??? I can understand that dolls that lose a head or limbs shouldn't count, but it's possible to explode a bomb without destroying the doll. Shouldn't you be rewarded if you can get him to the target intact? There are 2 levels that could be 1's if this was changed.

I second all of the above and would like to add a few.

7. High score on the level screen. This drives me nuts.
8. I know this probably isn't an "update" thing, but I hate the scoring from 100 system. It is not very user-friendly on the leaderboard.
9. The score for each level is very tiny on my screen. It would be nice if it were larger.

Good to see you again, Phantom.

Ooooh hello there.

I believe they score from 99 so that even if levels are added that the total score will always show the best player.

Now how about a list of levels that are not 1's. :P

As always, more than happy to chew the fat on levels I've managed. I have wondered if I have any that you guys might not have but fell on the "probably not" side of things.

What the hell...I'll start the list of "non-ones" for me so far.

*denotes I know a one is possible but I haven't gotten it yet
**denotes I think a "red one" is possible (like we used on the RB2 thread)
***denotes Phantom will get it eventually but I probably will never find the patience

207 (my best is a 91 but I haven't tried much)
217** (this is a 97 for me, but a 99 seems possible)

2 of your "no star" levels are 1s.

My score on 207 is 93. Everything else is 98 or 99.

some interesting screenshots:

I love this one - the physics go screwy on the chain, so much so that you can ping a doll up top. Don't know if its possible to do it with one doll but don't think it matters.

I love that you can get a doll standing up. I keep expecting them to wave when they do this.

convinced this is a 1.

Will do more later.
