As you noticed I am postponeing the update of the score records. They are still recorded in the 0.92 .enigmarc2 file. This way all scores of levels you play with a current trunk version will be updated to the new score system lateron.

This new score system will be included in the .enigmarc.xml file? (currently enigmarc3.xml) If so, it seems that you should be able to write the scores to that file now, but continue reading from enigmarc and .enigmarc2. You could even continue to write the scores to enigmarc2 so that the older
trunk versions still work.

The problem with the oxyd/esprit packs is the missing "indexname" in the index*.txt. If Raoul or Andreas can provide this field as they did for the enigma_* packs all old scores should be visible and new ones should be upward compatible.

Oh, I had assumed the use of the slash in the file name inside .enigmarc was intentional.
Now when i thing about it, that does not make sense.

Perhaps a good idea then would be to provide a script to strip foldernames from .enigmarc2, to be used by any testers after the index name feilds are added, to avoid loosing scores from recent builds.

On a somewhat related note: The message on the Enigma homepage indicating that Enigma development is slow is not exactly true anymore. Some fairly substancial changes have occured over the last three months. Perhaps that message should come down.

Also on one last note, it would still be nice to do something with enigma-game.org. At the very least, put up a redirect to the game's current hompage.
