MAME Hi Scores

8 posts in this topic

I snagged the MAME pack from the FTP and I'm loving it all. The only drawback is that it did not have built in hi score support. I compiled my own MAME awhile back and I think it would be as simple as just moving that .exe to the new folder... even if it was that easy, I'd still like to operate with .180 instead the .143 build I had. I thought maybe it would be as easy as just moving my hiscore.dat file into the folder, but that did not work. Is it possible to add hiscore to an already complete MAME or do you have to compile you own? If it is possible, can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial on adding the hiscore function without a complete compile?

Thanks and Happy New Year all!! Wishing for big things for all in 2017.

You have to compile it with the hitotext created for the MAME version. Headkaze's latest MAME Compiler does a good job of gathering the needed files for the compile.

Cool, I used @headkaze's compiler the first time and it went really well.  Sorry for the MAME compile 101 questions here.  I only have a couple more:

1. When utilizing this compiler, can I build from the MAME file I already have?

2. Or do I have to download new files, compile and then move the .exe to the file I already have?

 

THANKS!

Not saying you can't, but I believe you're just asking for problems.  I would do a clean compile, then search out the directory and replace the contents with your newly compiled version, but that's just me.
