tschak909 Posted October 19, 2022 Share Posted October 19, 2022 This thread is for high score enabled games, as we bring them online. All the magic for enabling a game for high score enabled is in the ATR header, so anyone can post these or other ATRs with High Score Enabled on their servers, and the high score enabled web code is available too, on github. What is High Score Enabled? By using unused bytes in the ATR file format, we can specify that a certain range of sectors on a disk be marked as read/write. If a write happens to one of these sectors, the file is quickly opened read/write by the FujiNet, the sector is written, the file is then closed. This allows for the game to be mounted as read-only, and only opened for read-write when allowed, such as posting a high score. When coupled with a public server, this allows for public posting and viewing of high scores, and friendly competition. All of this happens transparently, with no intervention needed on the user's part, and this will work with any TNFS (and web) server, allowing this to be deployed at parties. Current set of high score enabled games: TNFS: apps.irata.online/Atari 8-bit/Games/High Score Enabled/ Web: http://scores.irata.online/ as I bring more games online, I will post them here. If there are any that should be posted, let's get them enabled! -Thom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
