Installing Hi-Score Saver

Hi-Score Saver should be added to release credits. There have been releases that one person cracked a game and another person added a hi-score saver routine. Since hi-score savers are important to many sceners, it deserves to have its own release category.

installing a hi-score saver should be standard in a modern crack in the first place.

and introducing a new category for all and every fart - no.

Not every fart has the ability to install a functioning hi-score saver.

installing a good hs saver, and with good i mean working at least on 1541, 1581, ide64, hw fast loaders and sd-based devices, don't require less work than a good ntsc fix.
So, why ntsc yes and hs saver no?

its about as hard as copypasting http://codebase64.org/doku.php?id=base:saving_a_file somewhere. nowhere near the efforts needed to fix something for ntsc.

What about single-load games that don't take care about IO/vectors or ZeroPage kernel IO buffers/working area?
Code you posted as example uses
LDA #$C1      ; start address located in $C1/$C2

what happen if game uses this location(s) for his own purposes?
Are you so sure that it is enough to copy paste codes like this one to have a full-working HS-saver?

And what about searching code to be patched where HS-Saver must be started to update saved data?

For me it's a little bit harder than copy/paste from codebase...

You look like an italian politician: do not pull phrases out of context!

My sentence "it's a little bit harder" don't mean "for me install hs-saver is a little bit harder", but mean "it's a little bit harder than copy/paste from codebase" as you wrote...

ok?

Apart from this being a useless category it seems a useless discussion as well.
Alas, let us start and finish a discussion on what a proper hi-saver actually is and its minimum set of featuritis!
