Hello gamedev Community, I have a problem with my sharedPrefs and I dont get it (im a beginner) I want to make a simple game but i stuck at the HiScore.It allways displays O. Those are some code snippets.

SharedPreferences prefs;
SharedPreferences.Editor editor;
prefs = getSharedPreferences("HiScores", MODE_PRIVATE);
long longestDistance = prefs.getLong("longestDistance", 1000000);

private SharedPreferences prefs;
private SharedPreferences.Editor editor;
prefs = context.getSharedPreferences("HiScores", context.MODE_PRIVATE);
editor = prefs.edit();
longestDistance = prefs.getLong("longestDistance", 1000000);

private void update() {
if(distanceTaken < longestDistance) {
editor.putLong("longestDistance", distanceTaken);
longestDistance = distanceTaken;
if(distanceTaken >= 100000) {
distanceTaken = 100000;
gameEnded = true;
private void startGame(){
distanceTaken = 0;


Thank you for the help :) Niclas
