In Drop7's Sequence mode, what is the full sequence of discs that are dropped? Has this been documented by anyone? I've seen mentions that there definitely is a sequence to the numbers, but not exactly what it is. I'm assuming the person seen in the below video did figure out the sequence if they achieved a score of 5,000,000.

Here are the first 261 pieces you drop (COMPLETE)

Question mark signifies not visible.


Here are all unknown rows that pop up after each level 6457513 1363344 6457334 2271715 2371541 5236271 3671373 1541633 3731114 2163237 5345453 6166733 6425775 7742511 5133535 4745767 1433523 1513643 ---4176 -----6-

Dashes signify one I don't know yet


And here are the multiplier values (chain scores) for up to a chain of 30

7 39 109 224 391 617 907 1267 1701 2213 2809 3491 4265 5133 6099 7168 8341 9622 11014 12521 14146 15891 17758 19752 21875 24128 26515 29039 31702 34506

I'll start this by saying that I worked on a port of the game to WP7 (and have my own personal Xbox 360 version) that was never released, so I can't come right out with the information requested.

I feel like I can give a few comments though.

That video you posted shows the sequence, if you wanted to document it, you can get all of the information right from the video, at least to that point. you could try an alternate path if you can analyze where that person made mistakes.

I can also probably say that I originally thought this was just a random number generator seeded with the same seed, but it is actually a defined set of values that are pulled from in a large data table in the app, I suppose so it could be the same cross-platform which wouldn't be the case with different system random number generators. So you could pull the sequence from the executable image if you can get it on a PC and figure out where that data is.

Maybe that's a pointer in the right direction. Hope this helps.

If there is a (x) behind a number the piece is not visible. If there is a question mark, ?, where there is suppose to be a number I don't know witch number is behind the block yet.

The starting row is: 6(x),4(x),5(x),7(x),5(x),1(x),3(x)

Level 13:

Comment or message me if you have additional information or find that some of the information is incorrect.

I got this information from Android (My Galaxy Nexus ICS). I quess it is the same on the different platforms if not then we need to seperate the thread.

I figured out the discs in sequence mode for the first 71 levels:

Please add the sequences to your answer; a link on it's own isn't an answer. –  Frank Mar 8 '13 at 19:39
    
There are 1035 discs for the first 71 levels and I already stuck them in a table on the page I linked to. –  user1106281 Mar 8 '13 at 23:50
    
@user1106281 What if the content gets moved or removed? An answer that consists mostly of a link isn't very helpful to read, an answer that consists mostly of a dead link even less so. –  Coronus Mar 9 '13 at 1:19
    
This is really interesting work. Thank you for taking the time to post about it. –  Sean Mar 9 '13 at 4:16
