John, I updated the leaderboard with your time: 119897. Parpala leads Sukzua, but I dont think it affected the actual league points at all.

It may be more than 16fps if your CPU has been overclocked to 28mhz. The game was tested on an 020 set to fastest possible and no cycle exact. Yes it is much more fun, and the timings of gears...

Yes the scoring is a bit of a mystery but I think the final line "score is divided by the number of deaths" is the key, as if you dont die, the final score cant be divided.

Just the matter of how to score it. :)

Someone said it gives a percentage at the point of death, and I presume 100% completion = 100%.

Should we award 1M per %? Is there any way to tie break?
