Title: Where are your highscores recorded ?
Post by: djwedge on November 25, 2012, 11:40:57 AM
Hi everyone,

This is my first post here, I'm from France so feel free to correct any mistake in grammar or spelling.

I've been playing Spelunky for some months now and had lots of fun, brought back tons of memories of old video games and feelings I hadn't experienced with recent games.
So big cheers to Derek Yu and everybody involved in the making of this game !

After having beaten the game a few times and unlocked all of the rooms, I didn't play it for some weeks until this afternoon, and when I went in the highscore room (after... dying :D) it appeared that my scores were like 999999 deaths and -100000 wins... And the challenge rooms were locked again except for the damsel challenge (I wonder why the money score wasn't erased).

So here's the point to my topic, is there a file were those scores are recorded ?
Is there a way to get back my scores and rooms ?

Anyway I can still play the game and unlock the rooms like I did before, but I would really like to see my old scores again and not 999999 plays :p

Any help would be appreciated, I hope I'm posting in the good section, tried to look for an answer in the source section but couldn't find anything.
Good evening to all and keep on playing !

All save data is recorded in the registry and a text file, with the former involving the most crucial to unlock stuff data and the latter for more specific data.

I don't know the exact details about where the registry is, and I've forgotten what the latter file's called.

The only way to reset your scores to nothing is, on the score screen (with the doors to the minigames), move the block that's there all the way to the right. That'll reset everything including the scores.

I don't think there's a way to recover it at this point. Look up Spelunky Portable it won't help recover your scores but it will show you how to make a backup in case that kind of thing happens, I'm sure it talks about where that stuff is saved. I know it's a temp folder with the game's Gamemaker id, which you can find by opening the source and looking at the game info.

Do you want to fund Mossmouth with your huge amounts of cash, Mr. Wayne from Gotham City?
