I have repeated the same bug I bumped into last week, apparently because I was using the same idea of manually trying to reproduce the Band and Wiggle kind of Worm script that exists in the recipes.
I started out yesterday doing what I like to do for the beginning of a puzzle with Wiggle Power set to "Low", and after awhile I had moved my score into the low 9200's.
I decided to move the Wiggle Power to "High" and then add a few bands with 0.5 band strength.
I simply started a wiggle using the "W" key. While the wiggle is ongoing and the bands had been working for awhile I use the "D" key to disable the bands. I watch the score increase as the effect of no enabled bands allows the protein to grow again.
Then at some point, I Enable the bands again then Disable them again - repeatedly, until at some point I press the "R" key to remove the bands and let things settle down.
I have noted other players getting the same kind of score increase that moves them to the top of the leader list. If you need help reproducing this bug, I believe I can do it again for the 3rd time. But, I have begun to lose interest in Fold It due the severity of this bug. I can not restart and play the puzzle normally unless I create another username, which is frowned on.
Such is life.
