Saving scores after playfield swap

Postby Shredso » Thu Aug 11, 2011 3:39 pm

I was disappointed to see my scores gone when I swapped SWE1 back in. Is there a setting so it will save scores? If not, this would be a good feature.

This isn't saving high scores at all, even after a regular power down. My RFM saved scores no problem. Am I missing a setting somewhere?

I would try replacing the battery on the USB board.

Make sure the jumper next to the battery is jumpered. Is it saving game settings (freeplay etc?)

There is no jumper there. It must have fallen off when I was switching the translite. I have the board mounted upside down. If I can't find the jumper (I'm sure it's long gone) all i need to do is short out the 2 contacts correct? With this jumper in place will it save scores between playfield swaps?

That jumper enables/disables the battery. I believe it does save scores between swaps.

The empty jumper was J2, J3's jumper was in place. So that wasn't the problem. On the last reset it did save some settings but not the high score.

We'll look into this further.

One quick thought, are you running tournament mode? If so disable it.

Tournament play is disabled, Player select tournament was enabled. These were both in the in-game menu.

Open the coin door after the game boots and tell me what software version you're running.

I just posted a score on my swe1 and it worked. We'll see if Don has any additional ideas.

Try this:

"The game now saves settings, remembers high scores, etc. I did a factory reset, and then it started working."

Webfart solved this same problem by doing a factory reset.

First reset crashed the system. 2nd reset worked but high scores are still not saved. In game settings from before the reset stayed, I would think they should have been restored to factory.
