I am working on a game console with an arduino mega and a toucscreen where I make retro games. I am planning on making 10 games in total and I would like to have highscores saved in the EEPROM. However, after never using the EEPROM before, I am not sure how to proceed and asking for tips. I read abit about it, and I noticed it mentoined that it has 100 000 write/clear cycles, and I would really prefer not breaking my arduino mega. But my plan is that one game will get about 50 updates in its highscore, maybe 100. And one highscore will be defined with one letter, ex. Y and then the number of the score. And since I will be having around 10 games, that would mean it would be max 1000 cycles of write/clear in total if I'm not mistaken?
I would really appriciate any help with how to so this, as I have no experience with EEPROM.
