Troubleshooting MAME High Scores

Recommended Posts

Hope this is the best place for it, but for some reason Metal Slug X has given me a score of 15 billion (impossible). I actually got around 840,000 but didn't enter my name and exited the game.  I think it needs fixing and my score removing :)

@Snakeystew Do you know which exact LaunchBox version have been used? I am curious because the last beta is embedding the last hi2txt release that should forbid this behavior.

Is there a full setup guide for this anywhere? I've followed the text in LB and on hi2txt and I'm getting nothing no matter what I do. I feel like I must be missing an essential step somewhere.

10.14? As far as I know it's the latest version.

Yeah that is the latest official release, your issue should have been fixed in the latest betas. you can either upgrade to that, or wait for the official release, there is no ETA on that yet though.

Alas, the problem has occurred again - this time on Chase HQ, giving me a 101 billion score. I only got to the second boss. Can they be removed?

I tried Hatris, never played it before.  I think it trimmed a couple of zeros off.

13 is pretty terrible, although 1300 is not much better.   lol

Sorry, no logs for this one.  Just reporting the issue.  I am on latest beta.

Sorry to bump, but I think this got lost in the posts that came right after. Any help is appreciated on this. Thank you!

Sorry for the delay on my responses in this thread; I've been busy trying to wrap up the 10.15 release. I went ahead and removed this score. It sounds like this issue should be fixed for the 10.15 release which just came out.

This should get you started:

Just removed this score as well. Please update to 10.15, as I think it should resolve these issues.

If you're still seeing this with the 10.15 release, please create a ticket for GreatStone here: https://github.com/GreatStoneEx/hi2txt-xml/issues
