    Please provide the link about NVRAM, so TG members who do not know anything about MAME can learn.

    Thank you

    All jokes aside...., I think it's good that we can build up a FAQ list fo Mame users old and new alike. Earlier last month I did post a question on the general forum where one should have a summarization page for collectively bringing many wolfmame posts/past threads into a TG-Mame Wiki so that there can be a one stop resource to go to. So answers here can feed into a newly created TGWiki for Mame clarifying the ins and outs.

    you're all wrong. I think editing the wiki to include a section on nvram is a way better idea than any of the above suggestions

    And yes, I also agree that a wiki is definitely something that should be built out regarding this topic.

    Juan if you are serious about learning how to use MAME, send me a private message and I will help you.

    I'm not going to explain anything to you here, because it has happened before, you get upset about the comments and you either lock or delete the wallpost.

    Please feel free to add any MAME information to the MAME wiki page.

    https://www.twingalaxies.com/wiki_index.php?title=Platform:MAME

    It is there to serve as a resource for anyone wishing to learn the in and outs of the platform. (Of course when it is built out more)

    From: https://highscore.mameworld.info/nvramtest.htm

    Many mame games use nv ram to save data such as game settings and highscores etc....But it is very inconsistant saving highscores as many people have found that they only save scores every now and then, if ever.

    The nv ram files that mame games use are stored in a folder called nvram in the same directory as the mame.exe file is in. If there is no such directory then create one. once you exit an nv ram supported game in mame the nv ram file is either saved or updated depending on if its the first time you have loaded the game or not.

    So I have come up with a way to use the highscore.dat file with a games nv ram file to save the highscore, as its much more reliable. all you have to do is DOWNLOAD the latest unofficial highscore.dat file from the download section and unzip it into the same directory as your mame.exe is in, then download any of the nvram zip files from below and unzip them into your nvram directory overwriting any existing files, which should be also in the same directory as your mame.exe file is in (if there is no nvram dir - create one !!). Once unzipped the game will save highscores as normal.

    ** NOTE :- THESE NV RAM FILES ARE READ ONLY FILES - DO NOT CHANGE THEM IN ANY WAY **
