Griffin518's Best of MAME - XML Database 0.189

About This File

Dear HyperSpin friends,

I've put together a package of sorts, aimed at HyperSpin newcomers and veterans alike.

I've been continuously grooming a custom "best of MAME" database, bezel set, and MAME ini file set for quite a while now. My goal is to provide something that someone can drop into a fresh setup or custom wheel and be up and running right away. I intend to release updates to the individual downloads on a periodic basis, so check the change logs for more information going forward.

The package is split into three parts, as follows. Put together, these downloads will have results as shown in the screenshots.

  1. HyperSpin MAME.xml database (THIS DOWNLOAD, see below for details)
  2. Corresponding RocketLauncher bezel set (Link)
  3. MAME ini files (Link)

File information:

This download contains a custom "best of MAME" HyperSpin XML database. It contains both standard ROM-based games as well as some CHD-based games. It may be copied over an existing MAME.xml file and run against a full romset to achieve a pared down result.

The database was developed for a 2-player cabinet with standard orientation, 8-way joysticks and six buttons per player. There is no trackball or spinner on the control panel. So that being said, following are the requirements kept in mind as I develop it:

  • Top 350-ish working MAME arcade games (totally subjective, of course)
  • Based on official HS MAME database
  • I'm in the US and think the US loading screens are cool, so I've included most US clones instead of parent ROMs (exception being where parent version is much preferred)
  • 2-player clones of 3+ player games are included instead of parents (ex: TMNT and X-Men)
  • No driving, spinner, dial, trackball, analog, or really custom control games (apologies to many great games)

Install instructions:

  1. Download file
  2. Make a backup of your existing MAME.xml
  3. Copy file into your \HyperSpin\Databases\MAME folder, and rename it to MAME.xml
