On 'highscore.dat'

Hi, I seem to be confused about what 'hiscore.dat' (and enabling it through MAME's interface 'Plugins' -> 'High Scores' 'ON') actually does, 'under the cover'. My presumed knowledge so far (and please do correct me if I'm wrong here, I've come here to learn), in random order : 1.) If the original ha...

Re: High scores not saving

Not sure what your issues with high scores would be. Things to check: - Previous versions of MAME used a hiscore.dat file which is incompatible with current MAME. Each release of MAME now contains a proper hiscore.dat file meaning your old on will not work. - As far as MAMEUI, I'm unsure how to act...

Re: High scores not saving

While you seem to not know, you also seem to keep replying. While you seem to simply not read the responses you get (not even if it may assist in troubleshooting the issue or gets you a partly solution), you also seem to simply keep asking the same first question over and over. And while reading ba...

Re: High scores not saving

Mame32, or mameui now, is just mame with a windows gui interface to select the games. Same core version running with a different front end. Yes, * clearly *, that was the most important part of my last post. I whish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors to reach the holy grail of saving...

Re: High scores not saving

Thank you for taking the time to be more specific. I honestly do not know if these games/machines supported highscore saving on the original hardware (and therefore in MAME), and I see no quick way of finding out, so perhaps someone else can answer that. (The only thing I can say, is that most of th...

Mame lists a pacman version as puckman.
Actually if I recall correctly, 'Puckman' by Namco is the original (and came first), and then they licensed the property to Midway which then released 'Pacman' (which therefore is correctly listed as a 'clone' of Puckman in MAME).

Re: High scores not saving

It appears none of the new version high scores save. Could you name at least one specific game (and preferably a few), that is supposed to save the high score according to you - and preferably additionally did so as far as you can remember in an older MAME version - but does not save the highscore ...

Re: What are people using for unusual controllers?

I'm not sure if this counts as 'unusual' or not, but I have an X-Arcade Tankstick [1], which includes a trackball (and two regular sticks plus buttons). And although I don't own them, over at ultimarc they seem to sell a (USB) lightgun [2], and spinners [3] meant for use when building your own cabin...

Re: High scores not saving

To clarify things a bit, do you mean : 1.) That a specific game that used to save the highscores in an older MAME version, no longer saves the highscore in version 0.186 for that exact same game ? If so, I would personally consider that a bug and/or regression for that game. (Also, could you name th...

Re: Prototype Puckman board?

I'm not sure, but it looks like a bootleg of the original 'puckman' [1], possibly this one [2] or similar ?
