i originally modded my iron maiden firmware based on stock 1.05 and its been working fine.
I've made a new modified firmware with some different adjustments (also based on stock 1.05) but realised i'm going to lose my high scores if i start using that firmware. Is there any way to keep my highscores other than the communication patch and a cable plugged into the machine?
I realise i don't really understand where the high scores are stored? For example, would i keep my highscores if i backed up my existing modified firmware (currently in the machine) and then made changes to that version? (i'm guessing not as the highscores i have set have probably not been written to the SD card?)
Alternatively, can i just add my scores by editing the defaults in the highscores tab in pinball browser?
thanks for any advice. Apologies if this is answered elsewhere....
EDIT: found more posts with helpful info (was using the post search function wrong :-/) but still a bit confused. As per the attached image the grand champion score seems to be negative? and the "pinball values" part of the window is greyed out? anyone know how i can get around this?
EDIT2: when i try to edit the grand champion score and high score 1 scores in the "adjustments" and "high scores" tab (just by doing it in the left part - labelled "firmware parameters" rather than "pinball values" as "pinball values is greyed out, it doesn't seem to be able to keep the numbers in both places. For example, i'm trying to enter 456,516,060 as the grand champion score and trying to enter it into both "adjustments" and "high scores" it changes in "high scores" to "270193304" but keeps the new number in "adjustments". When i try to change high score 1 to 451,646,180 it changes in "high scores" to "221494504" but keeps the new number in "adjustments". Maybe this is fine?
i haven't been able to try writing the code with these values yet but figured i'd post this update in the meantime and report back after i try writing it some time tomorrow....
