Village Fair - Scores will exceed 2,147,483,647, is it going to break like the CC did?

We were told that scores in excess of the 32-bit integer, 2,147,483,647, caused the Cooperative Championship to 'break'.

Well there are teams closing in on that score now in the Village Fair.

Are there any plans in place for GGS to upgrade to 64-bit integer so this will stop being an issue?

  • The limit is a programming thing, not just for BF, so if the scores hit that in VF, I assume they will stop there, like the CC, though it does continue to count. I don't know if changing to 64-bit is as easy it sounds, as we have had issues with this for the last few years in different places, such as donations of cash to coops, buying max boosters in CC, even XP scores - How many coops are close to it? If it is only one then it isn`t going to affect the outcome of the event.

    since there is a team that has exceeded the 2.14 billion number in VF currently, something does not ring true to the 32-bit integer issue or is it that GGS has VF programming set differently than the ML??? just like allowing any tom, dick or harry to start challenges?

    odds are that at least 4 coops, possibly, will hit the 2.14 number  with the time left and/or exceed it.

    so if the counters can work for VF, why not the other events????

    edit to add: the counters are still counting, no freezing up as yet.

  • 2,147,483,647 does appear in the game, in lots of places, without causing an issue, because it is anticipated & dealt with before it breaks something. The scores in the VF were expected & that is why it did not break, whereas the 2 coops breaking the limit on the CC was a surprise & that is also being fixed, but the fix is not in yet.
