You see the only problem I have is where I can get the hiscore.dat file from. The whole procedure is completely straightforward. I mean the same thing is required at enabling the cheats and I have done it.

Hiscore.dat Tutorial is finally up. It was by far the most complex project in the series to date. Due to the fact that there was a lot of info to impart in as short a time as possible, I thought it would be easier for people if I narrated it this time around instead of just doing it in text. Syncing the narration with all the video material was a helluva lotta work, but it's all good now that the job's done.

:hello:

Hiero, even though I haven't yet played around with the stuff that you're talking about in your video, that was the best video tutorial I have ever seen. And I've seen quite a few (mainly Sony Vegas tutorials).

You speak very clearly, you demonstrate the actions required on the screen clearly, and the audio and video is perfectly synced.

The only three important criteria to address in any video tutorial and they all get 10/10 from me.

Basically it's just very easy to watch and learn from this video. Well done man. You've inspired me!

Wow Nos, thanks for the great comments mate! Feeling pretty good about myself after that. I wonder in what way you've been inspired exactly. That's OK though, if you got something planned don't tell me what it is; I like surprises. If you just feel generally inspired in a fuzzy kinda way then that's cool too.

Now that I've gotten over the little shyness hurdle of actually putting my voice out there I think I'll be doing more tutes this way in future. It sounds like it really does make it easier for viewers to absorb the info they're after from what you said, Nos.

It'll be interesting for me to see how the hiscore vid performs over time on YouTube compared to the cheats vid. People sure do seem to like using cheats a lot! MAME Cheats is easily my most successful vid by far... although I still got a ways to go to catch up with Chris's MAME Install vid!

:tongue:

Very well done!
My child, you have come to me my son. For who now is your father if it is not me? I am the well spring, from which you flow. When I am gone, you will have never been. What would your world be, without me? My son.
