Utility to extract hiscores: hi2txt

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

As suggested by DazzleHP, I am creating now a specific thread for hi2txt utility.

I started back in 2014 from the hashes of HiToText brilliant utility, providing full flexibility to describe how to extract hiscores without hard-coding anything in the program itself.

Everything is here: http://greatstone.fr...txt/hi2txt.html

Feedback is welcome as well as game support request or help :)

 

Last release: v1.10 (2019-09-08)

[Overview][Command-Line usage][XML format][All supported games]

 

Cheers!

Ok, we are nearly 2 years after the last message :) Months are running at an incredible speed!

I found some time to add 38 new games (again with contributions from T. Busse), 170 new clones, rework java and C# sources to be more closer to each other, slightly update the engine (check xml documentation for byte-trunc instruction), and greatly improved an internal function to try to automatically found the encoding algorithm of a specific hiscore file. So, yes, the project is still alive!

Games: R2D Tank, Radar Scope, Guardian, Prehistoric Isle in 1930, Prehistoric Isle 2,  Wild Western, The Three Stooges In Brides Is Brides, Black Widow, Gravitar,  Space Duel, Eggs, Eliminator, Exed Exes, Loco-Motion, Pac & Pal, Start Trek, Tac/Scan, Warlords, Zektor, Snap Jack, Son Son, Demolition Derby, Espial, Kozmik Kroozr, Omega Race, Rampage, Satan's Hollow, Solar Fox, Spy Hunter, Time Pilot '84, Two Tigers, Wacko, Fire Truck, The Ninja Warriors, Gradius III, Lode Runner, Rainbow Island, Viewpoint, Youjyudn.

all games from mame 0.1 to 0.28 are supported

clones aligned to mame 0.212 hiscore.dat

Thanks for the update.

I am guessing for GameEx need to do following:

Download c# version.
Ensure .NET framework 4.5 installed.
Rename exe file to HiToText.exe
Place renamed exe in GameEx install folder.
