I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and guess you have Steam Cloud Sync still on? It's the gun in 95% of issues, and the hiscore.txt file is the smoke coming out of the still hot barrel :p

There isn't, in my opinion, one good reason to keep the syncing on (it will continue to be a nuissance when it comes to anything "saving" related), but if it works at syncing your save-gams between different computers, I can't reasonably tell you to shut if off;

If you want to continue using Steam Cloud Syncing, here's what you do:
(NOTE: this WILL clear your Cloud as it is, but you'll be able to use it again afterwards. So I suggest you do this on the computer with your most recent save-games, so those are the ones that will be re-uploaded on your "fresh" Cloud)

1. Navigate to your C:\Users\######\My Documents\Gaslamp Games\Dungeons of Dredmor\ folder
2. Open the config.xml file (Notepad will do just fine)
3. Find the "enableSteamCloud" tag, and change its value from 1 to 0. It should be the fourth line in the file
4. Open Steam, right-click your Dungeons of Dredmor game and select Properties. In the General tab, click "Launch options", and add "-nukesteamcloud", without quotationmarks of course.
5. Start the game and exit out of it again
6. Delete or edit your hiscore.txt file as you wish
7. Reset your launch options back to what they were before (i.e. remove the "-nukesteamcloud" tag)
8. Edit the config.xml file again, changing the 0 back to a 1.

If you're not planning on using Steam Cloud Syncing, you can just do steps 1, 2, 3 and 6, instead. This will disable Steam Cloud Syncing, and fix your highscores.

I'm fairly sure that should work, though I'm entirely capable of messing that simple process up with an elementary flaw in logic. So let me know if it works or not, so I can fix my potentially wrong process!

Ah, okay :) I actually don't have another computer to use it on, but I will do this :D Thank you!
