Flying Discs Money Contest POLL - Udpate the rules !

Hi to all,

Due to some of your requests, and after careful consideration we have decided to conduct a poll for the video recording rule about the money contest.

The reasons we decided on the video recording rule at first was to protect against fake scores from possible hacking.

Because of the unpopularity of the video recording rule: ...
we have put together 4 possible solutions for you to choose from:

1. full game video recording
2. partial video recording (last minute of final score at least)
3. screen shot of game over along with openfeint (verification of id through openfeint)
4. openfeint only (verification of id through openfeint)

*minimum 100 votes required
If the votes required are not submitted, option 2 will be applied as of now, and until or if the poll results are different.

Thank you

Screen shot for sure, at least 50% of the people can't make a video or have too bad connections to upload it. And you will never get 100 votes tbh.

We will hear the voices.
We will put it in another forum and let you know soon.
But 3-5 votes won`t do.

Everyone can find a way to upload a large file though.
From a friend, from a cafe, university etc...

And everyone can find a camera too. You can pause the game at 70.000+ (or close it. it saves your last game and you can continue) ask a camera from a friend and there you are. Just a minute video until you lose.

We are offering good prizes (starting from $400 !).

I'm with the majority here, just a screenshot with OF integration (so at least they'd need to be decent hackers as well as Photoshop Masters) since I don't have a video camera and you never really know in advance if THIS is going to be the game you get that amazing score on.

Maybe if you're allowed to just show a video from some point pretty late in the game (once you already know you have an amazing game in progress) it wouldn't be AS bad but I'd still prefer to lose the whole video aspect.

I still like my idea of an encrypted code right there in the end of game score display that only the devs have the ability to unscramble which factors in the score, combos, and total time. If the stats displayed in the screenshot don't match the encrypted code also shown in the screenshot, the picture has been altered.

The voting goes ok.
I put already one poll in the largest forum about the iPhone in my country and it will get a lot of votes. They just reviewed us with 5 stars and they `ll also feature us

I don`t know if it is apropriate to put a link here.
Is it ?
Anyway you won`t understand a word there. It`s Greek

Thank you all guys

I have a good camera but can't make a video of me playing unless one of my kids happens to be here, and I don't usually play until they are asleep. I also don't trust OF that much due to they hackers so I say either a picture of your actual device or a screen shot. Something to authenticate what is showing in OF at least.

Lamb is delicious.

I used to work for some Greeks and every year for the annual work party they would roast a lamb on a spit. Good times.
