High Scores in EM Machines

Related Config File Sections:

Electro Mechanical (EM) pinball machines usually do not have a display which allows a player to enter initials. To use the existing high score mode we can preset player initials using player_vars:.

    value_type: str
    initial_value: AAA

After setting this in your machine config the high score mode will no longer ask for initials. The exact string (here AAA) does not matter since you usually will not show it anyway. If you have another way to enter initials you can also use that and set the initials to the initials player variable.
