Enable Hi Scores in HPPC - Mame

Post by JohnGriffiths » Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:01 am

lr-mame2003 will attempt to keep a permanent record of any high scores you set, but some games will not save these by default. A supplementary file called hiscore.dat is required for these ROMs to save scores.

An old hiscore.dat (pre mame v0174) is required with the default HPPC

Downloaded the old mame2003 hi score format dat file from here

and the " Click To download the old format hiscore.dat (pre mame v0174)" link.

Extract and place the hiscore.dat in H:/hyperpc/emulators/retroarch/system/mame2003/

Direct download link: http://www.mameworld.info/highscore/hiscoredat(old).zip

Test Galaxian as that has a zero high score :)

Thanks to David Brown for the fix.

(he used this info https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Se ... igh-scores and worked it work HPPC ... clever clogs).
