  4. GameEx Hi Score Feature and Mame .136

    Hello and good morning/afternoon/evening! I recently updated my cab and instead of using pre-compiled versions of mame (mame32), I decided to compile my own version of Mame UI with hiscore support. I used Headkaze's MameCompiler64, and compiled Mame 136 with no errors. I couldn't find any of the update patches, but after googling around for awhile, I heard that the source code I downloaded from the MameDev website had the updates worked in. I also applied the hiscore.diff patch for 136 with no errors, and with using hiscore.dat, everything is working as it should...except for one thing - I cannot...for the life of me...get GameEx to show the High Scores within the game's menu. I enabled the high score support in the Mame Advance Config section using the Setup Wizard. The "High Score" section still does not appear within the game's info section (I tried Donkey Kong, Pacman, etc) and sometimes, HiToText seems to crash. Lol, I would normally upload my config ini and log files, but presently away from the cab at the moment and won't be able to return for another 8 or so hours. But, off the top of your heads, is there a step that I'm skipping somewhere?...does anyone else have this problem? Thanks in advance! LC
  5. Hi-Score Snapper

    Version 1.0.6

    67 downloads

    What is it? It's a plugin to take official snapshots of your MAME hi-scores for the GameEx Hi-Score Competition. This tool saves some leg work of having to type the same data everytime, and overlays some information and artwork to make it harder to fake. The overlay contains your username, initials used, MAME version, GameEx version, ROM name, and Override Mode (if used). Just take the snap and upload it to the game's competition thread. How do I use it? The configuration is really simple, just type in your user name and initials. Everything else is automatic. This plugin downloads and uses a centralized gameslist which is updated with the Hi-Score Database. As long as you have an active internet connection, you will always have the latest game list available. Offline users can download the gameslist.txt from here and place it in the GameEx>Plugins>HiScore Snapper directory. The plugin only enables itself for games that are in the database, so there's no effect on your MAME games at all. Just take a snap of your high score by holding [sHIFT+HOME] (I have a hotkey set up for this in Xpadder and it's working great! You can take many pictures in a row in the case of blinking hi-scores). I also added a camera shutter sound effect that plays when the snap is taken, so you know you got it. The snap is then overlaid with the artwork and information in the picture, and you can come upload it to the thread when you're done. You can set several options from the Configuration screen, including: User Name This is the username you use for all your leaderboard entries. The global leaderboard depends on this! Initials The initials you type into the game for your hi-score Snap Directory All your snapshots will be saved into this directory. By default, they are saved in the plugin's configuration folder located in GameEx>Plugins>HiScore Snapper Image Size Specify the height and width of the snap with these values. By default the size is 1024x768 Image Type Choose to save your images as JPEG, PNG, or GIF The images are saved in the root folder specified, with a subfolder for the game name. The physical file name is generated based on a time stamp of when it was taken. To view the last game snap you took using the plugin, click on the preview image in the lower right corner to open a viewer window. There is also a status strip at the bottom of the configuration form that will show what version of MAME you currently have set up in GameEx. There's a small catch though. Here's the rub... I can't seem to get pictures from D3D without a great deal of extra work (the snaps all come out black). So unfortunately I have decided that the only way I can support D3D snapshots is by having the user compile their own version with DirectInput enabled. The process really isn't that difficult, and helps with adding support for things like Xpadder compatibility to your build. UPDATE: As of 1.0.3, you no longer need to worry about renderer changes. MAME Mode supports all renderers that MAME supports instead of forcing DirectDraw. I found a bug! What do I do about it? If you have questions, suggestions, or bug reports, please direct them here. Thank you for your support!
  6. So for your earlier feature request Draco, I went ahead and added the RSS Feed Editor to the Database Manager. If anyone would like to plug the feed into GameEx's already available RSS Reader, here's the URL: http://gameinfo.hfc-essentials.com/hiscore/HiScore.rss All that needs to be done to update this is to hit the UPDATE FEED button when the database is updated. Those fortunate enough to have access upload the new RSS feed in a few seconds (everything is generated in code). Now everyone can see the score table no matter what they're using. I hope people find it useful. Enjoy!

  8. I recently refurbished an X-Men Children of the Atom cabinet for a friend. We started picking random games to have friendly hi score competitions. Currently, we are attacking Mario Bros. I know there was the online gameplay deal setup through Gameex a little while back. I'm wondering if anyone has ever thought of having a friendly hi score competition. Maybe pick a different game every month and post pics of our hi scores. I find that this little friendly competition makes me enjoy my cabinet even more. I used to love it a ton mostly when friends were over.
