loaded a 10734 share on 589 on fresh load of fold.it application. The application didn't perform the update check (i know i didn't cancel out). The puzzle immediately evo'd to 10764. I'm assuming this is the pi helix issue again. As my puzzle won't hit real evo 10736 for this, please void my evo score in this puzzle. Please make sure the default install package of fold.it doesn't have the pi helix bug in it.

good to know the system works (in that it won't keep your score that was created using an old client), and thanks for the reminder to update the install packages!

Just a query - what happens if you download the old exe, don't try and evo and just play normally? Dose the system catch the cheat or not?

The old client will appear as though you're logging scores, but the scores will not actually be logged on the server. That is why it was crucial for us to update the installer (which is done now).
