Hall of Fame

Welcome to the hall of fame. Your name could be here! All you need to do is send me a recording of a game you played where you got more than 1,172,525 points. Recordings of all the official top scores are available individually right here, by clicking on the score, or in the DIGEXTRA.ZIP file. If you're having problems playing back the DRF files you download here, it's because your web browser is messing up the line endings. Try the ones in DIGEXTRA.ZIP before you report this as a problem. This will be fixed in the next version of Digger.

If the hall of fame games don't work, try the ones in the DIGEXTRA.ZIP file - your web browser is corrupting them. I'll fix it soon so that Digger plays back files even if they've been corrupted.

Karen Grigoryan does like to do something special with the first level of his games. In his previous record he scored just 50 points! Dror Bohrer of Israel went one stage better and recorded dror0.drf, where he completes level 1 without scoring any points at all! I'd still like to see this feat done with no lives lost...

Karen also (in a previous hall of fame game) recorded thevoid.drf, where he cleared every piece of dirt from the screen with three monsters chasing him, and then went on to collect the bonus and eat them all! Here's a tricky challenge for the top Digger players: Duplicate this feat without killing any of the nobbins before eating all the dirt. The term "The Void" was coined by one of the first Digger champions, Stéphane Reusser, who was also the first to do this feat (although he only had one Nobbin chasing him for most of it, hence his DRF has been replaced with this more spectacular one). Ramon Aguilar from Mexico went one better and recorded ramon.drf which achives a high score in the void of 8,625 points. Now we need someone to get the maximum of 8,650 points without dying or 16,450 using both reserve lives.

Johnny Veliath did a similar feat in thevoids.drf - completely clearing all 8 levels. Johnny also designed a new, ultra-challenging set of levels ("Challenge of the Nobbins") which can be found in the Digger extras pack.

Hubert and Stefan Weinreuter are brothers (in case you were wondering!)

Please note that games recorded with the /I option are not eligible for the hall of fame, and that if you use the /U option, your fame score may be lower than the total score from the game. See the FAQ page for more details.

If you can beat 1,172,525 you can get into the hall of fame. To save your game, wait until you are back at the title screen (after the "Enter your initials" screen, or when the "Game Over" screen has disappeared) just hit F8. Then exit the program in the normal way. This will create a file with the extension DRF and a name composed of your score and the initials you entered. You can then attach this to an email and send it to me. If you don't know how to attach a file to an email, simply open the DRF file in a text editor (such as Notepad in Windows), select the whole thing, copy it and paste it into the email message. For some more information on recording and playback, see the appropriate page for the version of Digger you're using.

When sending scores, please check the website first to make sure that your score is good enough. Also, please tell me your full name, nationality and whether or not you want your email address published on the website. If you entered your initials wrong when you recorded the game, also tell me how you would like your initials to appear on the animation on the home page.

When recording games for the hall of fame, please use the pause key rather than finding a place where the monster won't get you and just staying there, as they take forever to play back if you do that.

You can send as many games as you like but no one person can have more than one entry in the hall of fame, so only your best game will be shown. If you later submit a higher scoring game, the older one will be removed.

All email addresses published here are done so with the consent of their owners.
