Default Step 1 Scoring system

Can anyone please explain to me the current scoring system used by USMLE? I know that now-a-days the focus is on 3 digit score but i have seen people scoring above 250 and their 2 digit score is 88 or 89 or 90 maybe. How does it work? Earlier people used to get 99 even with a score of 230. How have they changed it and why did they change it?

The 2 digit number never mattered it was always the 3 digit one, they changed the 2 sigit number scoring so thats why 99 doesnt exist anymore.
