> do you a have list game of which the dat files give problems when used with MAME
You know that's a great idea. If someone could keep a list of which games exhibit issues using hiscore.dat.
I would hate to completely give up the hiscore.dat functionality (please Haze leave it in!), it's so nice being able to keep your hiscores, especially for those older classics that didn't have sram to save them on.
If we knew which games had problems, maybe there could be an alternate hiscore.dat with any problematic hiscore entries removed or commented out.
