HiToText (Hi score support)

Recommended Posts

This thread looks over my head. Are you guys saying that even though I have a mame exe that is compiled for high score saves and I have High Score Enabled in HyperHQ under Main Settings/tools I still need to do something else for mame to save my scores while using Hyperspin?

Your scores should save just fine, there might be an issue with using HyperLaunch for MAME still, not sure if that got patched up yet or not. But to display scores in Hyperspin you need the HiToText application in the HyperSpin directory.

oops I missed this update thanks Fyrecrypts Ill update soon.

Compiled Mame works with HitoText and high scores with\without hyperlaunch

However when using Hyperlaunch if you exit Mame via Hyperlaunches

designated\default "exitemulatorkey=esc" key even if yours is different than "esc"

high scores wont save.

you can:

-configure mame (independant of HS) to exit with other keys and then only use that\those key(s) to exit.

or

in the mame [section] of the hyperlaunch script add the ";" to disable this line (or remove line completely) -save\compile

;Hotkey, %exitEmulatorKey%, CloseProcess

and then it will save hi-scores.

Using Hyperlaunch with any emulator that doesnt natively use

"esc" or whatever you have designated for exitemulatorkey,

Doesnt allow them to shut down via their normal processes,

so any settings you've changed or hi-scores created, may not save.

Still no joy with the "-lp" modifier using all the variations and criteria from a couple posts up. (HiToText crashes hard) with the batch.

"-l" works fine.

(considerable stuttering with themes in HS)

I guess its an HS thing still.

Where do I find more instruction on Hi to text, and where do I download it?

This whole process really shouldn't be necessary for high scores should it? Or does this program add high score support to games mame doesn't?

My sig has a link, I believe the initial post has a link as well. This application is not necessary to keep scores in MAME. It is only necessary for displaying these scores outside of MAME, in particular within HyperSpin.

What does this mean? where does it display the scores on the Wheel or something, I don't get what you're saying.

There's a picture of what it looks like in HyperSpin (and other front ends) here: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=83614.0

Also, you sound a little anxious, relax a little, it's just games. =)

Ok, so I looked at this on arcadecontrols site. So this program has Nothing to do with the original high scores that appear in the games attract mode. If I have a correctly complied mame those high scores should save fine. This program puts the high scores on the hyperspin game theme screen. Isn't this redundant? or is this for showing high scores if you don't have mame complied to save them?

It displays scores outside of MAME, so you can see them without entering the game. It's not redundant, but it may not be useful to you if you don't care about that. My plan when starting the project a couple of years ago was to be able to share scores with people not using your machine. It spun off into HiToText because people liked having the ability to view scores outside of MAME. I plan on utilizing it to show scores on a separate monitor in my cab (whenever I have time to build it. =D)

If none of this is useful to you, I don't recommend using HiToText.

HitoText isnt necessary, but

Just as Hyperlist shows extra cool information like game description, manufacturer,

genre, year....this isnt necessary either but adds a very nice touch.

HitoText adds a pop up text like above within HS, and it cycles High Scores for player1, player2, player3 etc...for mame games that support High Score.

Its really very cool if\when given the effort.

If you have a high score in a game and save it properly, the initials you enter do save and you will see it in HS

[edit]

The lists I've been posting in this thead need to be fed into HyperList to create a database.

There are a bizillion mame games and only a few hundred are supported by HiToText and HiScore (for now).

Its hard to find which ones they are on a full mame wheel.

These lists (after hitting your genre key "default=g") will have every supported game pop up without having to search for them.

To see this list you need to edit the,

\hyperspin\databases\mame\genre.xml -file and add this line or whatever you named your xml, to it.

Also you have to play the game at least once and then exit via mames exit keys not hyperlaunch "exitemulatorkey" so that mame saves the data in its \hi\gamename.hi -file

Hi everybody,

i would realy like to use this HiToText, but it seems that i am realy bad when it comes to compile mame for it. my compiled mame.exe is always not working :-(

Is somebody willing to send me a ready compiled mame.exe 0.138 ?

Thanks

Sharing of self compiled mame versions is not allowed I believe.

Plenty of versions support hi scores though dude.

I think XTMame & maybe MamePlus both do, why not give one of those a spin.

I think the idea of been able to add the supproted games to a genre is awesome, nice one to however thought of it. The whole HitoText concept is unique and worthwhile in my opinion , i am going to try get mine up and running today sometime, wish me luck.

Just one question though , everytime new games are added where should i refer to to get the latest files to update HiTOText?

For me, all I want is the hiscores in the game itself to show up.

When I run mamui64 on my 64bit pc ..the hiscores are there.

but if I run it via hyperspin no luck.

also runing mame on my 32bit laptop...also no hiscores. but thats per the version i believe.

wondering what i missed there.

tulsaboyw: are you running mame with hyperlaunch enabled? if so turn it off, quitting from mame with hyperlaunch stops mame from saving any settings, including high score. Also for those having trouble with the compiling, im using mameXT which supports hi score out of the box.

its disabled - at least on desktop (cant chk laptop till tonight).

Meaning that even disabled it still doesnt handle hiscores.

Yet im using the versions that can do hiscores.

But Im questioning, is the hiscore support the hiscore within the games where they get hiscore..

or this hitotext.

Ilike hitotext but I dont need nor want a external to game hiscore method. Though I can see a future possibility down the road but without the game itself keeping it I will likley never bother with hitotext even if it works and the internal hiscores dont.

Since mameui64 (on THE DESKTOP I have which is 64bit) it is retaining th highscore... so when I want to play certain games that I know i will get new scores I tend to dump hyperspin and go direct.

When HiTotext loads the score to show in Hyperspin, Hyperspin freezes for about 1 second, except the sound, is this normal? (Well, it shouldn't be)

It is a known issue, and I can't solve it on my end despite my tries. Old versions of HiToText that are faster (less games, no XML parsing) cause the hiccup in Hyperspin 1.0+, and old versions of HyperSpin can run any version of HiToText without the hiccup. I need to talk to Bill about how to possibly fix this.

Hmm shame.. .ive been looking on the site ..and still nonthing about why the hi scores work when I run the games directly but not via hyperspin.

despite the changes to ahk and other stuff still nothing.

IM talking about the hiscore that does work when i play direct yet doesnt when via hyperspin.

Well for me...

Though I now have a playable (minus hi scores) via hyperspin.

I seriously doubt i wiill be using it much without getting hiscores to show up.

Since they do when running stuff direct, Im likley to dump hyperspin even with the success of getting stuff setup.

And no, I wont bother with the external option, I only care about the games itself doing save state or simlar... as they already do when run direct.

THis is a hyperspin issue so I will be looking for another alternative to hyperspin.

Bummer Hyperspin is the coolest one, and in fact is the only one I would pay retail $$ for and more...

My alternative to hyperspin will be a dos run menu that I dont particular like but its mine based on rubyonrails and webbased so time will tell.
