I've been playing it for about 3 hours. My best score is about 800. Then I showed my Nephew how to play it and said match up a lot of the same colors to get a good score. He matched up with my help about 25 two times got a score of 922! We never clear the board. I got down to 2 balls a few times.

I just played it and got 1040 the first time after about 5 hours not playing it. I got 2 really big groups.

markp99 can you put a photo of you high score screen in here?

Here is mine. Not much.



Wow today in the morning Sunday. My Nephew first play of the day and he cleared the board! He got groups of about 20 and two 10's he said. Here is are high score screen now.

I found out by your photo of your high scores that you can press "slow" it will show all the hight scores and redo the board. So you can keep doing "slow" to rearrange the board until you see a lot of colors match up pretty good.

I was playing and got about 800 then was going to give up and the next board came up and looked pretty good. I played it. I matched up every yellow color on the board! then about 2 others with 7 each. Then at the end I got it clear. Here is a photo of mine. 1810!

The 1607 one I only had one tile left. I would of got 500 more if I cleard it. 1607+500 would of = 2107. That would of been the highest score here if I cleard it. So I played more trying to get a lot and clear the board.

After about 5 more games trying to clear the board. I think it was the 6 time playing and I got this 2204 by maching up every green color that was on the board! I cleard other colors that would of not match up after falling when I cleared all the green ones. Then only 3 other colors were left that were mached up putty good and I could clear it. Now I have the very highest score so fare posted here! :up:

Me telling all this my help other to get a super good score.

What I wanted to say too is that I did not play this game for about 24 hours. When I truned it on to play it and press play, the play screen was over on the right top side for a sec. then my TiVo reset to the powering up screen. I thought O know all my high score will be gone. But when I went back to the game the high score were still there. They must be on the Windows PC I have not truned off in about 2 weeks.

This is still in bata I guess so can't really blame the reset much.

Ray,

You didn't really need to play to build back your save games list... :)

I spotted the file where SameGame writes its save game data. Its sitting in an odd file in the \samegame folder:

162d6d39e137b23e627ebf546de812aa6762faf.txt

I thought there might have been some CRC-like significance to the filename and its content, but there's none. Only numeric values are read by SameGame.

Changed it from :

Code:
#[url]http://192.168.1.105:4277/samegame/[/url]
#Thu Feb 03 16:46:51 EST 2005
samegame.highscore=2062|1502|1376|1357|1248|1169|1119|1086|1055|995

Code:

samegame.highscore=999999999|88888888|7777777|666666|55555|4444|333|22|1|0


Awesome play, huh?? :D :D ;)

I did notice older savegame files from my previous server installations. I could have just cut/paste these results into the current file.

Thank you markp99

I did a search for samegame on both the PC's I have TiVo HME running on but it could not find any thing. I want to reload the first one I started with.

What I am guessing is because I only use QuickStart every time I reboot or close that I have to go back to the quick start web page and click on the link so it starts again.

I guess then that there is a install program. The QuickStart don't install it's just for a test I think.

I hope I can find the files with my hi scores in them. Then I would edit it so it at both ones together with the top 10 hi scores.

Is there a HME program to install? I will look for it.

I looked for it. I downloaded the hme_sdk_ea1.zip file from SourceForge.net I ran the runsamples.bat it has more in it then the QuickStart but it don't have the samegame in it.

It keeps a DOS type window open. I guess there is some other HME file to use to get samegame with a samegame high score folder in it.

Hi Ray,

Here is the full path to MY samegame folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\Mark\Application Data\TiVo\samegame

I don't see the "Application Data" folder when just using Explore, but I can see it when I explicitly type the path into my browser.

I can also see the folder when I Search, but I have the advanced "Show System" and "Show Hidden" folders and files search option checked...

The folder/file EXISTS on your PC somewhere...the app does not write data to you TiVo :)

Hope this helps.

Mark

Mine is in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Ray\Application Data\TiVo\samegame

It looks like this:

#http://192.168.101.60:7288/samegame/
#Sat Feb 12 09:08:12 EST 2005
samegame.highscore=2342|1728|1252|1188|1176|1147|1050|1001|985|984
The other one with the same file name looks like this:

#http://192.168.101.2:7288/samegame/
#Tue Feb 08 18:12:24 PST 2005
samegame.highscore=2204|1810|1607|1352|1181|1164|1126|1116|1113|1074
Now to edit the main one to look like this:

#http://192.168.101.60:7288/samegame/
#Sat Feb 12 09:08:12 EST 2005
samegame.highscore=2342|2204|1810|1728|1607|1252|1352|1188|1181|1176


Thank you Mark!
