There's a typo. Am I allowed to change it? In the second real world reference, it says "socres." TreeWithAChainsaw 23:08, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Yup, go right ahead. It's a wiki. Heimstern Läufer 23:08, 23 April 2007 (UTC)
It's just that one time, I made a new page on wikipedia and it got deleted. TreeWithAChainsaw 19:48, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Well, that's different. Big edits, such as making a brand new page, can be controversial. But minor edits like fixing a typo will always be highly encouraged and commended. Great jorb! :) – The Chort 19:53, 27 April 2007 (UTC)

[edit] New Page?

Can I add a new page for the Strongbad Easter Egg and move the goofs etc. to the new page?

Now why would you do that? — Defender1031*Talk 13:34, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

I would like to do it so that the goofs section and the other stuff implying towards the Strong Bad Easter Egg doesn't get tangled up with the stuff implying towards the game.

No need for that. It's still part of the game, even if it's not gameplay. Just add a qualifier ("In the Easter egg", etc.) in front of appropriate facts and it's fine. --DorianGray 22:17, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Okay, thanks!

[edit] I figured something out!

Okay, so I was messing around, when I noticed something;

All cars will move the exact same way, except for the drunk driver, which is still predictable if you know what to do.

The game randomly picks what direction the drunk driver trucks move at the start of the game. Not entirely sure how it works or calculates which way. But once it does this, the drunk driver will ALWAYS move that way for the whole game. With no variation.

This can also mean that if it picks it goes from the left to the right, since all cars move the same way sans the drunk driver, there's no cars to go towards the leftmost side of the screen; one can feasibly gain infinite points by playing games until the game rolls a game in which the drunk driver moves from the left to the right, and then leaving the car at the leftmost part of the screen.

You can feasibly break the score counter via this method, and it only shows the top 5 digits.

This is already mentioned under "Glitches". But I've actually done what you've described before. Got a score of 100,000+ just letting the computer run. 16:29, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
I'd figure the score counter breaking would already be on the page, but I'm thinking adding the info of how the game works (like how specific cars always move the same way, and how drunk drivers always will move in one way that's decided on game start) and mentioning the exploit of getting infinite points by getting a game where the drunk driver goes from left to right + staying to the leftmost side of the screen.) --I was raised by a cup of coffee - Camwoodstock 16:35, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
