Impossible Xbox time/score combination?
Hello IOI people (@Travis_IOI please pass on) I have a . . . nerdy thing to report. In Xbox contract 3-10-5675961-74 there is an impossible score. I don’t mean someone cheating, I mean the time and score combination is not possible. Right now it’s 7th place, a 2.37 run with one star for no recordings and no non-target kills has a score of 21779. I’ve worked out how the scores go and this combination is not possible.
For a time of 2 minutes 37 seconds, one star, no non-target kills, the range of possible scores is 21780 to 21783. For a score of 21779 the only possible time is 2 minutes 38 seconds. The two don’t overlap. All other scores in this leaderboard (and others) fit with my score-time functions. I assume the scores and times are rounded rather than truncated for presentation in the leaderboards, id est, 37.7 appears as 38, not 37. With rounding my functions fit the other scores but I don’t know if that works with truncation.
In case you look into this, a long time ago I noted that the contract is broken. It still is, for one target the weapon required is coding gibberish so it is not possible to complete the level with all conditions met. It’s supposed to be the same as the others, katana either melee or thrown.
