When I uploaded my High Score for Papa's Freezeria I noticed the following.

It says I'm 143rd out of 156 for high scores today, but this is way off. It then shows me as 14th which is correct. The screen that first pops up after submitting the high scores also shows my score properly. When I go to the my scores tab it says my rank is (something like) 230,000 out of 240,000, which again should be way way off.

What's going on?

Here is a photo of the second problem I was talking about:

Notice how my score for Today is 14/161 (top photo in this post), the proper number.
Which differs from the "Reton" is 143rd out of 156 (the first numbers circled in the original post).

Also notice the doubled underlined scored. The top photo (in this post) shows the All Time score as 6,987/244k but in the bottom photo it shows my "Current Rank" as 237,399 of 244k

Okay, I just noticed something.

For the Today score:

143
+ 14
--------
157

(about 156 the total number of players for Today)

For the All Time/ Current Rank:

237,399
+ 6,987
-----------
244,386

(about 244k the shown total for the All Time Score and Current Rank)

It looks like the game is taking your actual rank, subtracting it from the total and then telling you that is your rank in certain places. Example, where it says I am rank 143 out of 156. The game is just taking my 14th place and subtracting it from 156 and we get the 143rd rank (there might be a tie among the ranks and this is why it isn't showing 142).

Why is this happening?

Looks like a simple math error, hopefully they can update and fix that. It can be easy to mix up variables accidentally when programming, happens all the time. =D

I know, lol. I've programed a few small apps (for school and myself). You can have a decimal place off that crashes the interface.
