PINemHi


PINemHi is a commandline-program that can read the hiscores for Visual Pinball games
and Future Pinball games.
It uses the nvram-files created by VPINMAME roms to get the data out.
Future Pinball uses fpram-files , these too can be used to read the data out.


Usage:

PINemHi -v                                             displays the version of PINemHi
PINemHi -lgf                                           displays Future Pinball-games that are supported by PINemHi
PINemHi -lgv                                          displays Visual Pinball-games that are supported by PINemHi
PINemHi -lr                                             displays the roms (vpinmame) that are supported by PINemHi
PINemHi <romname>.<extension>        displays all the high-scores for that game(rom)
                                                               e.g. afm_113b.nv or familyguy.fpram

Because of the Future Pinball support you now have to put the paths to Future pinball's fpram and Visual pinball's nvram in pinemhi.ini
And also you have to give the extension on the commandline as well....
For instance for visual pinball:
PINemHi afm_113b.nv

For instance for Future pinball:
PINemHi familyguy.fpram
