This might be a noob question, but how do you make 2 hi-score charts in a game with separate data on each one! Every time I submit a score to one, it posts the score in every leadeboard on the game! I named them all differently which obviously didn't seem to work.. please help a noob!
Well, It's not hard to explain how an INI works, but It's not easy to create your own hi-score system without know INI basics.
Try first to read the pages posted by Keltosh.
I took a look and they seem very good
Yeah, I agree, using an ini file is the way to go. Using ini files is very easy once you get the hang of it. There is the limitation of having a maximum of 64Kb size, but that shouldn't be a problem for a high score table.

I never heard of this 64kb limitation.
What happens if my INI file grows bigger?
I checked right now and my biggest INI file is 63kb (lol)
But I need to store some more data there, so what do you think that will happen if my file should go over the limit?
Thank you in advance!
(It's true that you learn something new everyday )

Somebody else said the same thing but I really don't know how arrays works and I prefer to focus on the game, instead of learning how to use them (unless they are easy to master or strongly required for my game)
Anyway thanks for your help
