[BUG] Scores saving for wrong game

Here's the scenario:
  1. User begins game in Game A.
  2. While Game A is in progress, user starts another Game B in a new window.
  3. User finishes game A, and when the score is submitted, it gets added to Game B.
Is there any way around this? It seems to happen with just about any game combination I've tried.

I am also having this problem.

Of course when 1 person figures it out it screws everything up. When multiple people find out, it ruins the arcade. Is there any fix for this that anyone has found?

Only install secure (v32) games, and this problem will go away. Secure scoring prevent "cross-posting" of scores as we call it on my board. I also actively watch for any crazy score submissions, but so far so good. Been a.ok for 3 months.

normal behaviour, as each player can only start ONE gamesession at once and new gamestarts overwrite the session.

But it should normally detect the score is coming from a wrong game ... hmmm...

This is a big deal, especially when prizes are given for winners. Sort of defeats the whole purpose of keeping score when such a gigantic hole exists. Any plans to correct this?

Thanks for the link. I'll try your fix out this weekend and let you know how it goes.
