Unhappy Games missing high score saving feature

I would really like, that this thread would point out games that miss this one - very important feature: saving high scores to the hd!
...and hope for future updates to the slaves


For example (most out of memory):

Chaos Engine
First Samurai
Saint Dragon
(ouch, that one hurts me the most...)
Second Samurai
Toki
X-Out (Cross Out)



PS: Well, i'm assuming that they originally do save hiscores...

I must say i really enjoy the highscore saving in Super Hang-On, driving the Europe course again & again to try and beat the best score is fun.

Actually, almost no Amiga games save the high scores to disk - I'd guess that the figure is maybe 5% tops! Almost all the WHDLoad high score saving routines are added by the patchers and were not present in the originals. And some like Lotus and Super Cars 2 are a bitch to do!

It does add playability though that's for sure... of course you could scribble it down on a piece of paper of hex edit the actual executable (done that a few times) but it isn't quite the same...

perhaps there should be added incentive for doing the bitch type alterations...

like donation from the interested party

Ow ...

Did not knew that... it was kinda suspicious tho, when originall CAPS realeases didn't save scores in the emulator ...



So again, it's only a matter of begging the slave author for such a feature, and... wait ...
