Default Data loss on power failure

hello I do not know if I'm repeating the question but can not find answers anywhere, the problem is:
the game does not keep the score nor crédits in case of power failure, is there some process to force write automatically? or write at time intervals?

As a casual user, I would have to say that I've never run across an easy-to-access option that would allow that. Whether there's a programming tweak that can be taken advantage of, I'm not sure. I doubt it, though. I think that would be the MAME part of PinMAME. Sort of like if the power's turned off while playing a real machine, none of the data on the game you're in the middle of will be saved.

Ah! Like your previous high scores and stuff? I never had that those get erased unless I uninstalled VP, but I would be pissed if it did! I work hard at planting those high scores in there!
