I love hyperspin Android and been using it for sometime now.

Everything else can be worked around without much hassle but there's a couple of issues that really impact the browsing experience for me.

1. Launching multiple emulators in one wheel is my top one

i dream of adding collections

2. Next is some way to have a favourites list without duplicating all my media

3. The holy grail is fixing the libretro intent so we can customise the CONFIGFILE path per system wheel

Actually, I'd say "All of the above". But I guess it needs prioritizing.

One of the things, I would put into the "Other" section: Has somebody looked into the possibility of using HTML5 instead of Flash? I'm no expert here, but I think HTML5 libraries might be more readily availble for Android than manually recoding an swf library. At least, that was what I read out of the Android Issues thread, you had to do the decoding yourself. Correct me, if I'm wrong there. Just wondering, if this is a viable option.

      What is it?
      ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!
      Assets and Links
      Latest ScummVM release at time of posting Dec 17, 2017: ScummVM 2.0.
      Diskmach Updated Database ScummVM 2.1
      Latest HyperSpin database ScummVM 1.8

      Working RetroArch core at time of posting scummvm 2.0.0 93d1ca1
      Location of current core
       
      How to setup...
      Grab these setup files as they will be needed.
      (Includes the Android XML and "Official" XML databases)
      Follow this guide to set up RetroArch ScummVM core directly Get your games and place them in folders named after this spreadsheet OR download the above setup files and create folders for them (with help of the below guide) Follow this guide to setup the folder structure for Hyperspin Android "folder trick" Use the below ini file settings for reference and add the system to your Hyperspin wheel as any other exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture
      romextension=scummvm
      parameters=cores/scummvm_libretro_android.so
      Run Hypersync with the NON android xml as its not compatible with sync.
      The progress sheet below was adopted on the RetroArch documentaion and holds all my findings. I did duplicate 1 game to aid with android setup
      I created a "simon" folder for the Simon the Sorcerer's Puzzle Pack as all the games are in one folder.

      Dear Hyperspin Community. 
      Before I go any further, can I please apologise for posting this request for information. I have no doubt that this has been covered thousands of times on thousands of posts on this website and I am indeed sorry. Feel free to scream at me profusely and use a range of poo emojis to communicate your frustration with me. I guess I'm a little overwhelmed with all of the content and I'm a bit unsure where to start. I'm definitely new to Hyperspin and need some help. 
      I have an Nvidia Shield, complete rom packs (at least I think they're complete) for a range of consoles, have the Retroarch emulator working and have a range of other emulators to play all of the games I want. I have a 2TB hard drive that am using as shared (or emulated) storage device and this is dedicated to the shield (non-removable). Ok......this is where you get pissed. 
      1.) Hyperspin tells me "Warning.....attempting to launch missing rom". Because my HD is emulated the path in ES explorer reads: 'storage/emulated/0/hyperspin/emulators ( …….then all of the console folders (eg: MAME)……. then all the rom folder)'.  Roms are placed in this folder. Can someone please tell me what I need to write in the individual setting file (eg: Nintendo 64.ini)  as I have had no luck at all with any of the games on the Hyperspin interface. I believe this to be my major problem. 
      2.) This is where you're really going to get the shits. I downloaded the base pack for the Nvidia Shield (from the Hyperspin site) and the start menu is great. When I enter a console I have a warning triangle telling me "Video Previews available at emumovies.com". How do I sinc the videos with the individual menus (I think they are referred to as 'systems' but I have no idea how to install these)???????? Soooo...……..where can I find these and how and where do I install them??
      3.) I believe that the fonts and images associated with roms are called 'wheels'. I have downloaded a few of these but how would I install these on the shield? 
      Basically, what I'm asking is...……... how can I setup Hyperspin on the Shield using a shared storage device so that it kicks some serious ass. 
      A huge thank you for anyone that can help me. Feel free to kick my ass in the comments but I've already done that over the past couple of weeks so I'm well ahead of you.
      Thank you so much Hyperspin and hope to hear from you soon. 
      Soup Pants.

      Hey Guys I know this isn't really a Hyperspin problem but I was hopeing someone has set up their PS3 controller on the shield without the problems I'm having.

      I can get the pad working fine with everything plugged in or using Bluetooth (HyperSpin, KODI, etc) but the red lights are constantly flashing (trying to link to something?) if I turn off my Shiled the lights carry on flashing until the battery dies in the controller.
      Is this normal?
      When I turn on the Shield TV after the lights go out (the following day) I have to re plug in the controller using the USB & re connect it all over again which is a pain each time I want to use it as a normal navigation control.
       
      Thanks for the help

      (Tutorial) Hyperspin Android Overview & Installation
       
      Install Notes
       
      To install this Hyperspin Android base pack
       
      Step 1 - Combine the download parts
       
      Extract the "Hyperspin 1.3.3 Android PT1" (Hyperspin.zip) file
      Place the "Hyperspin 1.3.3 Android PT2" (Media.zip) file within the extracted Hyperspin folder
      Extract the "Hyperspin 1.3.3 Android PT2" (Media.zip) file and it will combine the two parts
       
      Alternativly extract both files and the cut and paste them together
       
      (Optional Addition)
      Extract the Settings_Android.zip and pick out the settings files you require as you build your setup. Place them in your Settings folder or Settings_Android folder depending on your setup Rename specific systems if needed ADD YOUR ROMPATH  

      Step 2 - READ the Setup Notes.txt
       
      Step 3 - Organise your roms
       
      Organise your roms so they are located in the suggested folder structure OR place them in a location of your
      own choice.
      MAKE sure you adjust the "SYSTEMNAME".ini files to reflect your own rompath
       
      ****Remeber rom names will need to exactly match your Hyperspin databases (.xml) and be in a format that your
      chosen emulator can open****
       
      Step 4 - Move the pack to your Android Device
       
      Once you have the complete Hyperspin folder place this at the root of your storage device connected to your android device
      (USB HDD, Internal storage, SDCard or Network drive)
       
      Step 5 - Download and configure your emulators
       
      Step 6 - Install Hyperspin Application
       
      Download and install the Hyperspin application from the Goggle Playstore
