Karnov - Highscore not saving - Mame 0.171

Post by ninjabadger » March 7th, 2016, 6:04 am

Hi Guys,

I have high score saving setup and working.

However for some reason Karnov just wont save the scores after exiting.
I've checked the .dat file and the Karnov entry is there. I've tried deleting the karnov file in the hi folder but still no go.

Any ideas?

G'day :hello:

Karnov and hiscore.dat don't work for me, either. Karnov does have save state support these days, though.

Right click Karnov > go Properties > Miscellaneous > tick 'Save game state on exit' > OK.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

OK so it's not just me then.

I'm not using a UI so no right clicking here :-) - However if it's not working for you anyway......

I guess something has changed in the rom or mame that means the hi score no longer works on this game :-(

OK.

So we can mark this one as SOLVED!

The highscore table that Karnov shows when first loaded is merely an "image".

Play the game or let the demo run - the NEXT high score table yo see is the real one and has kept all your scores!

:-)

Winner.

Oh wow, that's a really interesting find! Every time I checked and saw that first score screen I figured the hiscore.dat just wasn't gonna work for Karnov. I doubled checked after what you said, ninjabadger, and can confirm that personal high scores do indeed show up later.

:clapping:
