This shows that the sum of the segment energies + 8000.00 is not
equal to the score for the whole protein.

The game starts each puzzle with a flat number of points for free, just to make
the game more fun. In most puzzles this flat bonus is 8000 points; this allows
us to try for scores in the 8000-12000 range, which are simply more fun to play
for than scores in the 0-4000 range. In 933b it appears they increased this flat
bonus to compensate for the filter loss and ensure that our scores would be
higher than in 933. This prevents problems with evolvers having to make up the
difference when a replacement puzzle scores lower than its original.
I wrote a Lua script called seg_tot_not_tot v1.0 that adds the scores for each segment in a protein and adds 8000 to it. It also gets the points for the whole protein and compares the two values. The two values differed. They also differed by a different amount for the same puzzle if one run was done and reset and another after the puzzle had been worked on for a while.
Here are two runs for puzzle 851 that show this:
Total of Segment Energies: -873.81349408466
Total Seg Energies + 8000.00: 7126.1865059153
Total Score: 8574.8301453935 difference 1448.6436394782
total of sub energies: -873.81349408467

Total Segment Energies + 8000.00: -223198.18245789
