Never mind Dave, you should be able to tweak the registry to find that last 1 %  Grin

Re: How to tell if you have no life:


That single "lost" game was due to Windows rebooting overnight because of an automatic update, so the game closed during a game "in progress", without saving it. Made me all sorts of angry. That happened when I had around 200 games in, so rather than reset the stats (or fiddle with the registry, as Data suggested), I decided to see if I could achieve a "statistical" 100% win ratio, but it should have happened at 1000 games won.

Sometimes I hate Windows! Sad

But int(99.9) = 99

If it was going to round up it would've done it at 500 games.

If it was going to round up it would've done it at 500 games.

That depends entirely upon what sort of internal precision is used. If it used 2 decimal places internally (99.99%), but only showed the integer value, then the 1,000th win should have pushed the value to 100%. If, on the other hand, it uses 3 decimal places, then the 10,000th win (assuming no more lost games) would do it. but I'm not going to play another 9,000 games just to test my theory. I'd have to play an average of one game per hour every day from now until December 7th of ~NEXT~ year to reach that total, so no thank you. Tongue

BTW, that same thing happened to me again last night, wiping out some unsaved changes to Program O that I was working on. The lost work doesn't bother me as much as missing my alarm this morning did (my computer is also my alarm clock, of course). But I did some research, and hopefully found a solution. Of course I won't find out until the next time, which could be several months from now. Smiley
