  • If you get a high score in arcade mode, the score is also sent to the leaderboard

That's not a bug, that's a feature! Just imagine, you break a world record, and then it doesn't count because you were on arcade mode!

What if it was someone else who broke YOUR record? Arcade mode is designed for multiple people to play the game.

My brother confirmed that Arcade mode scores no longer go to the leaderboards, so your buglist is a little bit outdated now.

Platform: PC (windows 7 64-bit, steam)
Sort of hard to explain. While in game when you press both arrow keys at the same time the player will move counter clockwise. This is fine.

However when pressing both left and right mouse buttons at the same time, the player will stop moving altogether and will not begin moving again until both left and right mouse buttons are released. This is a problem when trying to change directions quickly as you may accidentally press both mouse buttons at the same time for a split second (this happens to me frequently on certain patterns).

Side note upfront: it seems that the steam leaderboard has been hacked.  "BYB Expression" currently has five high scores where the next highest score was either tied or beaten by :01 seconds, which should be impossible.  Don't know if anything can be done, but I thought it was worth mentioning and this seemed like the best place to put it.


Anyway, bugs.

These are for the steam version.  I think they're minor, but the third one does make part of the game slightly less difficult and therefore may be of interest.
Tested with/out sound, with/out vsync, windowed and fullscreen.  Results duplicated by a friend; my OS is XP and his is Win7.

I think that there isn't any cause for concern with the third bug.  It shouldn't affect the leaderboard, since top scores are decided by time spent at the final difficulty level and since it appears to be impossible for the no-pulsing effect to carry over to that level.  Or, even if it could carry over, it should have a negligible impact on difficulty, since there essentially isn't any pulsing there.  So, at worst, those using this would be simply 'cheating themselves'.  My thoughts, anyway.


Wonderful game, by the way.  I play a lot of shmups and I consider this to be a distillation of everything that I like in that genre.

:victoria: Why can't online leaderboards just be reliable? Both Game Center and Steam got hacked. Well at least there aren't any scores of 1.13 years (http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=1136.msg13705#msg13705) in Steam.

Well don't know if he did it on purpose or was an accident but his hack scores are now all beaten by LEGIT records  8)
But there still do exist several cheaters on Steam leaderboards. I'm sure at least there are 3 and maybe 2 more.

One of my Steam friends has 53 seconds record on Hexagon - which would mean that she hasn't passed the stage yet. Regardless, she already has the Point achievement unlocked, which you only get when you pass the stage... How is that possible? :o

Arcade mode bugs
* Pressing W let's you "escape" from the entering of name and back to the game. The next time you lose, you'll once again be prompted to enter highscore. If you manage to get a new score in the new run, the old score will be there under the name you left it.
* If you press escape during highscore entering and enter a new level, you'll still be in the "enter highscore" prompt. If you enter the score, it will be saved to the old level as expected (but it shouldn't allow you to leave this name entering really). However, if you under this case press W to "escape" from the name entering to this NEW level, once you lose you'll edit THIS level's Nth place's name (where N = where you placed on the OLD one). This allows you to do funny stuff like replacing the name Hexagon in Hyper Hexagonest by your own name (while keeping the 60s that it had) without really beating it.

Though not technically a bug, I find resetting progress way too easy to do accidentally in Android. While viewing Credits, I was going to go back and misclicked and boom, progress reset.
(There is a confirmation, but the "tap to confirm" is a little bit too easy to do)

I've found a strange bug recently, when I tried to start "Super Hexagon" (Windows 7) through Steam with Mumble, which was ran previously. Game was immediately crashed (screenshot is attached).
(http://i.imgur.com/58aOTdn.jpg)
Surprised, I started "SH" first and Mumble then (SH was crashed again). Without Mumble it starts w/o a problem.
 
Problem Event Name:   APPCRASH
Application Name:   superhexagon.exe
Application Versio:   0.0.0.0
Application Timestamp:   50bf8c6d
Fault Module Name:   OPENGL32.dll
Fault Module Version:   6.1.7600.16385
Fault Module Timestamp:   4a5bdadb
Exception Code:   c0000005
Exception Offse:   00092e8b
OS Version:   6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1

Additional Information 4:   0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

Looks like it is actually Mumble issue (how the hell they're using graphic library?), but still it is Super Hexagon, which is crashed :)

Also not technically a bug, but resetting your scores in Arcade mode will reset your normal scores too.

Which sucks.

Ouch! That's a real pain! I would swear in a really loud and colorful style if it happened to me! :o

Eh, it's no biggie. I replaced my Hyper Hexagonest score with a better one!

edit: also my high scores are still on the scoreboard so yeah, no problem
