I think posting a link of the match (from stats.sealhunter.se) would really help...

Thanks for reporting - it's a cheater, he has been banned, move along. :)

Nevermind! The match report is staying, for the time being - you'll see why when v1.0.1 is released.

No, all I said was that the match report would stay, for reasons of beginning a new scoring season with the release of 1.0.1. Consider those earlier matches to have been "beta" ones considering the number of initial bugs. :P

Now that this bug is fixed, I'd be interested in knowing how it worked

see you said we will see why the match is staying, meaning you will tell us why it was fair and how it worked :)

It stays for the reasons I outline above - the fact that it isn't actually part of the highscores any longer, and as such I was too lazy to go in and remove it manually ahead of time. :)

As for how the exploit worked - let's just say that it involved a last minute suggestion during the Beta (I'm looking at you, aXidal!) which I didn't bug test properly. Attempting to buy the land mines twice resulted in being able to use them more than once, wrapping the ammo count around from 0 to 255.
