You need to modify your member's group access and add The Zone! i.e:

Easy, you just need to join the 'Access - The Zone!' group.

To join:

1) Click on 'User CP' (top left of screen)

2) Click on 'Group Memberships' (bottom left under Miscellaneous)

3) Then Click 'Join Group'

Please Note: DO NOT upload IPF images, Workbench disks, Kickstart ROMs & software or music files still supported/for sale to The Zone.

Also Please don't direct link to files in The Zone when creating a 'new thread' or 'replying to a post'
Afterwards you will find The Zone! in the EAB menu bar, second from the right.

This is what my profile looks like after clicking "User CP":



You should have the same

The above instructions are very old, "Group Memberships" is now under "Networking" i.e. the 2nd section.

The only person who's offered so far is mailman.

Being Christmas and all, I guess you have to be patient until he logs back in and has time.

I had a quick look, high-scores are saved on track 3 of each course disk (offset: $4200). They do appear "clean" to me, i.e. they are the default scores put on the disk by Skid Row.

How do you load the game? Do you use the zip-archive and let UAE extract the files? This would explain why the scores are not saved.

wHAT is did today

I made a physical copy of the game to 3.5" discs
I played, and .....it saved the scores.

After that i copied the physical discs back to new ADF files, and played.... could not save again.

So something with ADF files in combination with GOTEK ??? Tell me...

Perhaps the ADFs or the device itself are write protected?

Check to see if they work in WinUAE by disabling this:



If it works there, then the ADFs are fine and the issue is somewhere else.

Gotek, no idea as I don't have one, but it's definitely a feature. Just Google it.

ADFs, are the Read-only file attributes set?

What disks are you using exactly?

If it's the .IPFs then you'll need to untick "Write-protected" as per Radertified's post.
