[Solved]Why was my score lowered?

Postby Guilhermeziat » Sun Mar 31, 2013 6:15 pm

The score that showed to me when i ended the song is on the left of the difficulty box, but above the life bar progression, the score is lowered by almost 1%.
As far as I know, SMO's server judge is 4, and I'm using judge 4, so what's going on?

EDIT: My explanation about this was pretty bad, so I played another song for a more detalied example:

http://prntscr.com/yo65e This was the original score (95.08)

http://prntscr.com/yo68i This was the score recorded by the server (95.31, above the life bar progress box.)

So is it because the timing requirements for a flawless and a perfect and so on are wrong in my game or is it SMO's website's fault?

The timing is all done server side in order to avoid cheaters. Surprisingly it is often more accurate than the client itself because it seems to ignore things such as lag and skipping. The judging is also set to around 3.99 instead of 4.0 in order to avoid false positive perfects.

On average it will be incredibly close though.

This seems to be a common question... I will add this to my FAQ... (even though a lot of people know now. Newbies won't.)
