NHigh HighScore Master Collection Project
v1.1 - 1001 files

Hey there guys, as you know, I've been gathering NHigh files from different people all around for a long time now, mainly because of my desire to keep increasing my collection and filling the historical gaps with as many NHigh files as possible, which has lately been accentuated by Hendor's interactive graphs, which put all this information into great use.

Lately, I've also designed a process to clean the highscore files, eliminating all hackers and cheaters from them. I think the collection has grown enough for it to be valuable enough to be posted. I'd like this to be an open project, with people contributing with their NHigh files, so we can keep it growing. So if anybody has files that hasn't contributed to the project yet, we'd gladly appreciate them.

zapkt recently started downloading an hourly NHigh file backup, so that means the future is secured. Hence the main focus is to contribute with files from the past, up to the present day, 2014. Without any further ado, here's the download link:

Download 1 (files classified by year): https://mega.co.nz/#!IZhhiIbK!Fr5ZM3PPq ... DA1UPUZ0E8
Download 2 (all files in the same folder): https://mega.co.nz/#!oFwS0TSI!xkgOB9yMP ... sCW-AEQpAI

I have cleaned all files from hackers/cheaters, renamed them all to the same format (yy-mm-dd) and classified them by year in different folders, from 2006 to 2014. Don't worry, I coded this process xD

One of the file seems to contain kryX-orange runs : after inserting the scores in my database, I got them for some reason on 2007-01-31 13:30:25. What's weird is that when I open 07-01-31.hs with nhigh, they don't appear... Is there a misnamed file, or is the file corrupt or something? :/

That's weird indeed. Do you have him added to the ignore list though? Because in that case, even if it were on the file it wouldn't show to you, because NHigh postprocesses the scores after loading the file.

I just opened the file with notepad and I can't see any kryx-orange runs o.O I can see, however, runs by the following players:

kryX_orange_is_a_loser
kryX_is_a_cheater
kryX-0range (with a zero)
KRYX_HAXXOR

These people aren't on the ignore list. They could be cheaters, but I have no clue to be honest.

You know, I just saw one of their runs, kryX_is_a_cheater's 73-3 run which is still standing. It seems cheated, so I guess we can add them all to the ignore list, since they're probably the same person. Also, I didn't have fuckingyourbrother and fuckingyoursister in the ignore list, and I believe they were all cheaters too (I had fuckingyourdad, fuckingyourmom and fuckingcrappittrash). I'll update the ignore list with these new cheaters. On another note, I've always thought schwah to be a cheater too, but apparently there isn't a consensus about this in the community.

If I remember correctly all of the fuckingyour_ are crappi and kryX having a spat about accusations of being a cheater. Turns out both were...

There are some other weird stuffs in the dump.
Take a look at 90-3: on 2006-05-18, Knu has a 0th with 151.100. The following day, he only has a 2nd with 148.850... Was he a cheater? Did his score got deleted for some reason?

He did an FBF run to show that kryX was a cheater and how he was doing it. I can't remember where the thread was on the old forums but it was whole shebang when it happened. So the 151.100 was a cheated run. I am not sure how he got it deleted (maybe asked M&R) I assume the 148.850 is legit.

Raif's 90-3 MBD is "only" 150.700, so I really, really doubt 151.100 is physically possible. That's plain weird :P (Maybe hacked then?)

It was 150.100, not 151.100. Zapkt merely misread the score, and nobody else except for me bothered to verify it :P

Problem solved. (I'm sure Mare or Raigan did just delete the score, as the run was, of course, cheated.)

if you want to see silly names on the boards then the most amusing place to look at is an old scoreboard for 12-4

does anyone know who they were?

brian_the_lion once held the 0th for episode 12 (March 13th, 2007 if my memory serves.)

I did too, but it just came up with thousands of results for golfkid's mother.

Not a bad idea actually, I've been downloading zapkt's daily files since 2014, I only need to get the last 5 months. Ill have a look at updating this.

Cheers. I'd be fascinated to see how the rapid decline of N 1.4 transpired.
