This level has a glitch. If the cannon ends up striking the red glow stick on the end, 1,000 points each shot….kind of like the old hollow log glitch. I will post a picture, but currently at 600,000 and climbing….just letting it run my score up to see how high it can get.

@mvnla2 you have to lower the blaster so it gets right in the way of Inquisitor’s double-sided light saber

and @myselfiandme I think it bounces off his lightsaber because it would make the level too easy if that blaster killed Inquistor for ya :)

Rank: Boss Hog with 13755 points

@myselfiandme I used the TIE Fighter to get the glitch going. Shot it’s blaster just under the laser cannon on the far right and it dropped a little and was aimed at the Light Saber, racking up 1000 points for each blaster shot that hit it.

Let the glitch run overnight and into the next day. Had over 64 million points when I finally ended the episode. Posted a link to a picture of it on the glitch walkthrough page. After posting that link, I wondered if any other episodes in SWII could have a score affected by the Saber/Blaster glitch, and asked that question in a post.

Imagine my surprise when I saw that both posted had been deleted, and I was informed that no scores using the glitch would be allowed. I really am shocked that a whole page of post exists talking about a glitch, and my posts are deleted by one of the admins here, then I am admonished for even talking about the glitch.

Wonder how long this post will be allowed to stay?

This anomaly would apparently result in any score as long as one will allow it to run. I stopped at ~1500000 and aborted instead of completing.

However I almost continued with next bird before I noticed what was happening. I´m afraid this will result in some unreal scores on leaderboard no matter what the threshold is. I wonder if the current top 170k might already be an example of this?

I agree the score is,out of whack. But out of whack glitch scores have been allowed before, so I lobby for me. I would prefer we get rid of all the previous out of whack glitch score from other games if we don’t allow this one.

@amslimfordy.

So why are the glitch related scores on Space (anchor glitch) allowed? Seasons has a lot of glitches that those of us who started playing late didn’t enjoy, yet those scores were allowed.

The Star Wars hollow log glitch scores were massive and allowed.

How long should I let this glitch run next time before ending the level? What score should I enter for now?

Rank: Sling God with 26055 points

@myselfiandme If the glitch is repeatable on all platforms, then I might discuss this with BL & Slim. They key in allowing glitched scores is whether it is available to all, and repeatable.

@sal9 thanks, I’ve thought about it a while myself and would actually prefer that scores like this one not be allowed. On this level or others. I accept that you cant undo prior glitch scores that were previously allowed back in the day. But I’m okay with not allowing them here if that means out of whack glitch scores aren’t allowed elsewhere going forward. It’s out of whack and how far out of whack is only limited by how long you want to let the glitch run. It kind of ruins the scoreboard when a glitch like this occurs.

For anyone else playing this level, I’d advise not going for these ridiculously high scores if you enjoy using Game Center. During a recent AB Space cleanout, they removed all Space scores for several respected ABN members because of their 1M+ glitch scores on the Anchors Aweigh level. As far as I know, none have ever been reinstated, and not for lack of trying. Just giving y’all a heads up.

I am really wondering why there will not be a badge for this level. It is very similar to the badge Over the Moon were the gamer set up a foe to fire upon another a log to get a high score. Or the Anchors Away badge where one could take advantage of an anomaly in the game to get a really high score.

@kelani, Wow. I hadn’t even looked at Game Center for a long time because all the TRUE Hacker scores made it impossible to even see where I was at (that was a new update previously that even stopped letting you see anyone’s scores below the hacker scores). I looked just now and Apple did clean it up; but yep…I’m not ranked at all for overall SPACE scores and not ranked at all for Pig Dipper due to that Anchor glitch (removing all the scores seems way too much). Bad juju! Apple should have been able to see that wasn’t a hack score. On top of it, thinking about a lot of the previous glitches that Apple did subsequently fix.

Might have been a good thing if when ROVIO fixes Angry Bird game glitches, user scores should have been at least backed up to the highest non-glitch scores and not left on the device. That could be established in a future patch if they take a look at doing it. That really bums me out. Boo Hoo. ;-(

@gypsybird I may be wrong on this, but I saw awhile back that Apple either turned over GC cleanup responsibility to each game’s publisher, or maybe just gave them the ability to do it. So, the Space cleanup may actually have been done by Rovio. I told a few people they should contact Rovio and ask about it, but haven’t heard anything back. I hope those scores are able to be recovered. That cleanup wiped out a lot of honest nesters. Kinda makes me feel glad I’ve never been able to get that badge, though.

Here’s the link to the article I mentioned: Apple Lets Developers Strike Back against Hacked Leaderboards

By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 124,380

@kelani. Thanks SO much for that information! I do read out on the internet once in a while to see Apple or Rovio news, but haven’t done a deep dive lately. I actually think Apple made a good choice in having each game developer clean up the GC. It was an absolute MESS. I’m reading that article now – thanks for posting that. I will write to Rovio – they know the levels that had those crazy glitches that allowed incredible scores so they should be a bit more observant when obliterating things from the GC. Perhaps this first huge cleanup was so much that they had to just do a full scrub without time to do the research. I know that @birdleader and other ABN Admin do communicate with Rovio whenever we encounter any glitches, bugs or self-destructing levels. The glitch scores were honest scores based on what the affected levels allowed when the glitch was activated. We are not hackers.

Wish I was good enough to figure out White Hat Hacking and people who can do that would sure be a huge help to things like Game Center in blocking out bad hackers who just like to interfere with everyone else’s honest fun! Anyone who can manipulate code like that should put that to better use in helping the world, not causing such mayhem. My short sermon for the day.

The Anchor glitch in Pig Dipper was a hoot to finally get. I got rather obsessed with it. I even let my phone alone (minor short texts is all – then open it back up to continue) – That was the hard part – the real challenge was to not use the phone, keep it plugged in and let it run for over 36 hours. My husband couldn’t even believe I didn’t play anything during that time. hahahahahaha… Angry Birds Anonymous!

There have been other glitches that yielded ridiculous scores, I did get a few others, though not as high as I did on PD, but others I totally missed – by the time I caught up and realized some of them, Rovio had already fixed those.

@gypsybird No problem, and definitely let me know if/when you get a reply.

Yeah, I wish GC had better score policing. The whole thing was poorly planned, and they clearly didn’t think cheating would be an issue. Much of this could’ve been avoided if they’d taken the time to cap the scores at the actual maximum for each episode/game (surely they know what those numbers are).

You get bonus cool points for knowing White Hat, and trust me, there are plenty of *cough* them out there ;) You don’t need to know code to help. Lots of exploits have been fixed by normal players who actively look for glitches like this while playing, or find them by accident. The bad guys aren’t keen on sharing, so if the ABN army can find them and alert Rovio, things can get fixed before they become a problem.

Rank: Avian Overlord with 17055 points
By GypsyBird (@gypsybird)Score: 124,380

@kelani. Of course I know White Hat. I work in the IT world. Not a programmer but I’ve done enough with Java and HTML in the earlier part of my career to understand a bit, byte or two. Yes, I agree that exploits and vulnerabilities can be caught by anyone who is online enough and pays attention to unusual activity.

Yes, it would have been good if Apple had thought of the cheating souls of other people and put some kind of safeguard on GC early – even the score caps might have helped a lot (still could). I think that a lot of us weren’t thinking about people being so nasty as to hack scores like that. Guess those people don’t know how to get some joy from just learning to play a game honestly. Oh well.

I got my auto reply from Rovio today. Will see what happens in the next week. I think they are already working to correct removal of our scores though. My Pig Dipper in AB Space is fine now. I’m still not showing any rank in SWII though – only in a few of the worlds, but not all of the so my overall rank is ‘Not Ranked’.
