Hyperbase Live: Public Beta

Recommended Posts

I can do global, but I'd like to avoid yet another settings section. I'll add it to the general settings screen soon and see what everyone thinks. Just so we're clear, all "global" will do is select the first item in the drop down list. Not sure if this is the desired effect or not.


As there won't be a same theme for all systems, the default option would be good.

If you want to include bezels in HyperBase just tell me how should i rename it.

The format is like this

[System Name]\bezels\[Media Set Name]\final\[Files]

So an example would be: AAE\wheels\AsteroidsAAE\wheels\Asteroids\final\alienst.png

Will HyperBase sync with RocketLauncher folder? I gues the RocketLauncher Bezels folder is different of the one you say.

This is just so you can get me the files. Since I'm not done with the same launcher section, this isn't defined yet. Since it requires RL to work, I would guess the path would be based on the RL settings.

I already have the bezels sorted in the needed RL path in my dropbox but don't know how would you need it.

I can zip all bezels in the right folder structure and people just would need to uncompress in right RL folder so no need to include sync in HyperBase Live. This is up to you if want to include it.

I need it in the listed file format in order for my auto importer to work. Again, this is just for you to get me the data. 

You do not have to send me a zip. But if you want to, you can. I can handle it uncompressed, so long as its in the right folder. Also, I can handle unzip behind the scenes in the app. I will need to anyway for emulators.

We can finish talking about that in the PM. :) We're flooding this thread.

Would it be ok if I did the same thing with the button to the right of the dropdown. So instead of "Preview" it would be an "Info" Icon?

Hover animations are completely doable, however, It adds a few layers of Visual work to make sure it says viewable and tidy.

Agreed! Adding an "i" icon to expand/contract extra info from the selected drop-down item seems a better option than getting stuff on-screen just by mousing hover.

Here is the RL structure for bezels i took from rocketlauncher wiki page. There are a few options to take care for folders (if horizontal or vertical for example). The .ini file should be synced too. And also a screen ratio option to choose between bezels. Maybe for a future release, because is a lot of work for the next release i guess.

Just tell me your future plans about bezels and if i can help in someway just tell me. ;)

did I mentioned that I start hating this program. it Is now the third time that after an update everything is lost I configured so far. 

Should we be hating on beta software or just politely giving our experience and suggestions?

Edit: I don't want you to have another bad Launch box problem Chris ;)

Hah! Well good morning to you too! I'll be adding a database backup mechanism pretty soon. This should make situations like this easily fixable. So, of course, I have to ask: are you allowing the application to auto update, or are you running the installer? Running the installer rather than auto update can cause the program to generate a new database.

Do you know what version numbers caused this? Do you have any other information so that I can debug this?

It was the auto updater, after that I lost my configuration within HBL.

From 0.45 to 0.47 today at around 11 am. I started that app, than comes the update and after all i was wondering why I cannot choose one of my already configured systems so far. I thought of an other bug, so I start implementing ps2. It took ages to go through my library and after all, i saw that i lost all other systems in HBL.
@Gigapig, instead of that lunch with a lot of sinless features (my personal point of view) is HbL more focused on the important things, but it is not the first time that happens to me and it is exchausted to go over and over those things again and again. I am still trying the newest LB/BB and has still the workflow problems why I still hate that app

@frostbyte you know that I support you app and your plans for the future and that ruff way to hint on some bugs should be nothing else Than a big red Alarm of a huge problem in the update process... it is more problematic because the update process is fully automated and cannot stop manually. There should be an option for auto update or manually plus backup and restore

As in you clicked on them and nothing happened, or they didn't exist anymore?

Unfortunately, I don't think I'll allow users to cancel updates indefinitely. This will cause huge problems down the road when making server side changes.

The next version of the app will have database backups built in. Rolling backups will occur on every update. This way, if you hit another snag, the app can restore to a previous state.

i like it so far. The preview images in the dropdown are a little small and I'm having trouble seeing what the difference is between to of the box arts in the Nes group, but it might be that I'm remoted into my system, and I'm not getting as good of an image as if i were directly on my system. I'll check it when i get home tonight... but so far its looking great!

Updates:

I wanted to give you guys an idea on what we have going on internally with this project. We're in the process of moving to a more powerful server over the next week or so. This should give us the breathing room to finish the data migration and move to a "complete" database. That means most of my time will be working on things that don't create updates (sorry gents). But just so you know that I didn't forget about you, here is a limited roadmap of coming changes

  • Support for @Avar's widescreen media files. 
  • Support for system INI files
  • Support for emulators (testing a local build now)
  • Support for launchers
    • Looking for a few RL fanatics to help me with this one.
  • Support for controller settings INI
  • XML export of system
  • HBL Database restore
  • .... Hopefully find free time to enjoy the summer

There are more things coming after all of the above, as well as a metric ton of visual tweaks. If you don't see a feature you wanted to see above, let me know. Big thanks to the team for keeping this project so much fun. 

 

and as always, a big thank you to everyone that keeps testing!

Can you give me a little more information?

  • What console?
  • How much RAM do you have?
  • What settings are you using?
    • Screenshot you sync settings screen.
  • Do you have enough space?

 

  • Every system i setup
  • 12 gigs
  • default
  • 30 gigs left

It's done this with every update. Even across two different operating systems.

PM me. I want to walk through the steps so I can reproduce. If you can, send me a screen capture. I'll get right on this.
