Android Files Media, database & Roms Same As PC??

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

I have a Hyperspin set up on windows for my cab but Ive just set up on my Shield (Android version) and its working great.

I was wondering though can I just copy over the database, Settings, Media Files, Roms etc... from my Windows version to Android?

Thatman84 has done some great guides you should look at. It will answer a lot of what you are asking.

Yes, you can copy your stuff across. However...you'll find some of the media (e.g theme zips) are not compatible with the Android version. You'll need new settings files for the systems which we keep in the settings_Android folder. Some emulators on Android can't use roms that are zipped. Take it wheel by wheel and you'll get there eventually.

The Shield can't emulate all your PC can do...so look into the Gamestream to launch your PC Hyperspin setup remotely. The Shield is a great little box, if you put in a little time to tweak it right.

All the best.

      The Hyperspin app is not on the playstore. (Google need confirmation about targeting children 🤔, App has been resubmitted, back up soon)
      Here is the download

      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!

      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 ini file in the download for reference and add the system to your Hyperspin wheel as any other 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.
