Mame not save Hiscore in Attract Mode
« on: March 17, 2020, 02:49:25 PM »
Hi boy I'm going crazy with this problem, I wish I could save the score of the Mame games but some games just don't want to know to save the score instead of others save them

the game in question is JOUST that outside of AM saves me the score but when I play by launching from AM the score is not saved

use mame64 0.191 Attract 2.1.1.

I activated the plugin in mame and I unlocked the mame folder from the check only reads but not fix

Wish I could help.  I'm having the exact same problem.

I run MAME directly and hi scores save just fine.  I run them through attract mode and they go back to the default hi score.  I can then go run it again directly (skipping AM) and the old high score shows up just fine.

Hopefully someone will have a pointer for us.

Hi
can you check if the file .hi are all saved in your HI folder?

Yes.

The .hi files are saved in c:\MAME\HI

Post your /attract/emulators/mame.cfg file and your /mame/mame.ini (or /mame/ini/mame.ini).
