Viewing MARP scores in MAME

Postby mahlemiut » Wed Aug 09, 2017 12:26 am

From MAME 0.189, you'll be able to see the top MARP scores listed within MAME. It can be tested out by building MAME from the current source on github, if you want.

To use, you need to download the Top3 output from MARP - either save scores3.htm via your browser, or just download with a utility such as wget, and put it in your MAME folder. Then run MAME with the Data plugin enabled (it should be enabled by default), then you can view score listings in MAME's "External DAT View" menu.

It's up to you to download the top 3 listing from Marp as often as you want to see the updates. You could download it every day if you want, or just once a week, or once a month, the choice is entirely yours. :)

Note, however, that the top 3 link on Marp is only rebuilt once per day, so that's as frequently as you can get score updates through that mechanism.

Cheers,
BeeJay.

You can write down a batch script that'll do automatically for you, for example by using wget:

So if I give MAME the top 3 scores for all games at MARP, then for any given game it will give me the top 3 scores at MARP?

WHY WASN'T THIS DONE YEARS AGO?!?
