Update to the repo, with Compo4All ability !
Thats great, hope more devs follow yours and _wb_'s example. I'm not into it at all, but nice to see that even after "all those years" the community and its devs always have surprise in reserve

Could I offer this as a slight adjustment to the "n" in Mini?

Nice feature, me as an old Metal Slug veteran should finaly give Minislug a try. :D However, I did not tested the compo at all, so first, I have to install these special MAME version from the repo and with that I can create a profile and after this, I can transfer the Minislug highscores online?

Does this need a permanent Internet connection or can Minislug save and just transfer the scores whenever a connection is available?

Yes, you have to first create a profile with C4A - MAME

And then, you can play MiniSlug - Compo4All Edition. Each time you play, the score yu have just done will be submited in real time. No defered upload I afraid, so you have to do a HiScore specificaly for C4A.

So when I play offline, my (saved) highscores are not transfered later, when the Pandora is back online to C4A?

No it's not. You to play online, sorry about that. Being often on move, I understand very well the limit of that, but I don't, for now, want to work on some offline score keeper that upload later.

But be reassured, even if you don't have to enter your name in Hiscore, the score you just do while online is still transfered.

All right, thanks for clearing this up. :) I guess it's the same then for the other Competition games from the C4A Mame Version.

Good thing is, WiFi usage on the Pandora is now much more battery-friendly than in the past so it should be no problem to keep it activated during gaming sessions. ^^

It doesn't seem to like https urls.   Is there any chance of implementing https downloads?  if not, could https addresses be automatically modified to http?

EDIT:  Ignore this - wrong thread.

What doesn't like https?

As to deferred post of scoring.. I can add that right into the 'sc client' perhaps, or you can build it into your game itself *shrug* .. I'm enjoying working on C4A, but I've just not had the time to work on it much of late.. RL is in the way :/ (with 3 kids, seems like always one of them is sick.. and if its one of the babies, my nights basicly get shot! :/)

Including deferred upload in "sc", I like the idea :)

ptitSeb: you can also write a simple shell script that saves the highest score in a file in appdata, checks whether you're online, sends the score and deletes the file if you are, otherwise just keeps the file around so the score can be uploaded another time.
