    View MAME High scores in Game Details - A plugin for LaunchBox/BigBox Use this plugin to see a games top 3 high scores in the Game Details. Features Shows high scores for most games in your Arcade platform in the Game Details. After playing a MAME Arcade game that saves its' high scores [and is supported by the included hi2txt program], this adds a Custom Field called "Hi-Scores" to the game. It will store 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and appear in the Game Details when the game is selected. What's needed (3) files that are included in the downloaded zip file (the plugin) One file that is included in the Version 3.0 downloaded zip file MAME configured to save high scores Saved high score files (These are automatically generated by MAME [once configured to save them] in the "hi" and/or “nvram” subfolders of your MAME emulator) What it won't do Show high scores for games using emulators other than MAME. MAME does not save high scores for all arcade machines, so not all games are supported by this plugin. Contributors @jayjay and @JoeViking245 A HUGE Special Thanks goes to GreatStone’s utility “hi2txt”. This utility converts MAME’s high score files into a readable format which ultimately makes this plugin possible!! http://greatstone.free.fr/hi2txt/index.html Installation and setup instructions: Step 1: Installing the Plugin Step 2: Making sure MAME is set up to save high scores Installing the Plugin: Download the plugin, LB-BB_Hi_Scores_v1.0.zip, from the LaunchBox download section After you’ve downloaded the zip file, be sure to unblock it in Windows by right clicking it, selecting Properties, and clicking Unblock Open the zip file and extract/copy the "Hi_Scores" folder into ..\LaunchBox\Plugins e.g D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\ If you have previously installed “MAME Hi-Score Display - A plugin for BigBox”, you will only to copy the “HiScoreCustomField.dll” file into that same folder. Otherwise all 3 files are required. (Only one file is required with version 3.0) The 2 plugins will not conflict with each other. Setting up MAME to save high scores: Using a recent official MAME release – By default, plugins are enabled in MAME. You can verify this by looking at the “mame.ini” file located in the root MAME install folder. Open “mame.ini” and scroll down to (or press Control + F and search for) “Scripting Options”. “plugins” should be set to 1. If it’s 0 (zero), change it to 1. Next, open “plugin.ini” also located in MAME’s root directory and change “hiscore” to 1. If you have an older release of MAME, you may need to do the following steps. Go to this website: http://www.mameworld.info/highscore/download.htm and download a copy of the file hiscore.dat that corresponds to your version of MAME. The file (hiscoredat.zip) will need to be unzipped. Place the file hiscore.dat in your MAME/Plugins folder Open up your MAME.ini file in a text editor. In newer versions, this file will be in the same directory as the MAME.exe Press control + F and search for “Scripting Options” Next to the word Plugins, type “1” no quotes Next to the word Plugin, type “hiscore” no quotes It will look like this: How to use: Start LaunchBox or BigBox Go into the "Arcade" Platform Select a game, run it, then close it Now select a different game, then go back (poor man’s version to refresh the Game Details) If the game has saved high scores, they will now appear in that game’s Detail pane Depending on the BigBox theme you use, the amount of data shown in the Game Details may be limited. So you might need to go into Options, Game Details and deselect some of the Details. Be sure that “Custom Fields” is checked.

You’re looking for the last instance of it, at the very bottom of the text just above </UserControl>. Also note that the indentation of the line doesn’t matter.

  4. Hello, Running newest version of LB 10.13. Connected to Cloud DB and have Upload high scores checked. In Big Box I can see the high scores. I beat the high score in Kung Fu Master, put my initials in and then at the title screen exited the game. I also made sure I was playing the US version of the ROM as what was shown for the high scores. Autosave in the MAME.ini is set to 0. Went back and my score is nowhere to be found. What am I missing? I am using MAMEUI64 0.193, would that have anything to do with it? Do I need to be running the regular 32-bit or 64-bit version? Thanks for any help anyone can provide in advance. Thanks, Nick

  6. Hi, I am looking for a way to auto save high scores and for them to auto loads when I play the game. I'm not sure of anything to do as I can have save states but I feel like there must be something someone has made that can do this as I want to have my whole retro machine never needing a keyboard to do anything once I am happy on where it is at. I don't want something that will save all the time where if i was playing double dragon I wouldn't want it to save the game play just the high scores saved as if I need to save the games like on zelda link to the past I would be able to save the game and the rom does that for me. I guess i want the same thing just to save the high scores so me and others can see who's doing the best etc. Any help would be great thank you
  7. how do you get mame to save high scores?
