Hacked scoreboards a possible solution? Dev see here...

I was looking at the impossible scores today and I had an idea, why not just bring up your development version of jamestown and tweak your version of the game and run through with some cheats enabled so you try and gauge what maximum possible scores are for each level and then statistically throw out scores that are higher then that?

Another possible solution is to record inputs encrypt them and upload them to some local server and replay them. I'm not sure jamestown was designed to replay player input but it would go a long way to verifying scores IMHO.

I noticed the steam integrated scoreboards are poorly designed, how much of this is steam side code that you can't modify? If you can't do much about it I'd get make some suggestions to valve about just running statistical analysis on scores and throwing out scores above a certain range.
