Spelunky Portable saves your scores to a file in the game folder instead of the Windows registry so you don't lose your progress when you transfer your game folder to another machine or play from a portable USB drive or cloud storage on a different computer. You can import your current scores from the registry into Spelunky Portable so that you don't have to start over.NOTE: This mod is no longer maintained. As of July 2012, its portable features have been added to both branches of the Spelunky 1.2 Project - I recommend downloading that instead, as it includes more bug fixes.
If you've already been using Spelunky Portable, here's how to transfer your scores to the Spelunky 1.2 Project:
1. In Spelunky Portable, press F1 on the title screen and click 'EXPORT' to copy your current scores back to the Windows registry.
2. Install The Spelunky 1.2 Project
. Make sure you install to a new folder, or move/delete the old 'scores.dat' file you were using with Spelunky Portable, as it is not compatible with The Spelunky 1.2 Project!
3. The first time you run Spelunky 1.2, your scores will automatically be imported from the registry and a new scores.dat file will be created.
There is currently no way to export your scores back to the registry from Spelunky 1.2. I could put together a standalone tool to do that in the future. (You may need to prod me to get started on this!

- You can also export
scores back to registry, so you can use the progress you made in Spelunky Portable in other mods that use registry scores. (Suggested by animalbrad)
- Fixed a joystick configuration bug in config.exe.
This is the import menu. The arrows indicate if that score in the registry is better or worse than your current score in Spelunky Portable. (Old image, before export option was added.)
