    After a bit of research and feedback I became aware that we had some issues with some limits around here. Specifically the ability to give reputation and to attach things in forum posts. I have also enabled the ability to add attachments in pm's for all users. Here are the changes that I made. Rank Rep Limit/Attach Limit Administrator Unlimited/Unlimited App Developer Unlimited/Unlimited Bronze Member Unlimited/Unlimited Database Development Unlimited/Unlimited Media Approvers Unlimited/Unlimited Media Creators Unlimited/Unlimited Members Unlimited/50MB Per Post Moderators Unlimited/Unlimited Platinum Members Unlimited/Unlimited Section Admin Unlimited/Unlimited This should take a few steps out of our current workflow. IE: wheel art threads, you can attach as many images as you like directly to your post. Please let me know if I missed anything or something doesn't seem right. That was a whole lot of settings to change.

    Hyperbase Live: Public Beta

    Yes, that was the old model. That model proved to be flawed so we re-wrote most of the app. We are bringing everything locally and it runs much better. We will have a remote control option in later releases so you can have the "server" app installed on your cab and then the "client" that you use to sync everything installed on any of your PC's

    Honestly this is the only way I'd recommend anyone to do it. Once you have your cab built, CP built and artwork on you're ready for everything else. You have that part finished. You have an arcade machine baby! Hyperspin/Rocketlauncher itself can be set up in just a day or two, but the problem is that it turns into an ongoing, never-ending, never-quite-finished tweak fest. For all eternity Amen. I think it makes way more sense to work on your Hyperspin build while it's in a cab and perfectly playable. Otherwise what's the point? I had my cab ready, my CP built and my PC for it all ready to go before I even made an account here and downloaded HS. Then once downloaded I set it up over 2 or 3 days just following the tutorials here and have just been improving it ever since.

    Did you say XP computer? I'd say first thing is buy some new thermal paste and re-seat your heat sink/fan. That will instantly breath new life in that PC. I bet that 10+ year old thermal paste on your CPU is dry peanut butter by now.

    Cabinet start up button

    A smart power strip would be the way to go with that. Then you could wire a power button to the power button on your PC. That would turn everything on that was connected to the smart power strips outlets. You can also set what the power button does in the power settings. Shutdown, sleep etc. Edit: I completely missed the part where you said that you didn't know how to wire that button up. let me see what I can find.

    How about when people still have .flv media files instead of .mp4 ? Will those files be removed and replaced when .mp4 are available ? Else you have a lot of double files.

    We actually check Md5 on each file. So even if you have a file with the right name in the directory, we will overwrite it if its out of date. So, no your files will not get overlooked. No there will not be duplicates. But again, I caution you. The database beta is working off of is not up to date. It will be in the coming weeks though. Edit: Md5 is kinda like a file thumbprint if you have never heard of it before.

    hahaha, true but nothing loads faster than chopped down XP that only takes up 500mb. Perfect for an arcade cabinet where people can't wait 10 seconds. Edit: Not to mention that the CPU is 14 years old, retro parts for retro games. lol

    It's been awhile since I updated my cab, but I think you can "Alt-Tab" out. I can't remember for sure. Or maybe it was Alt-Cntrl-Del and run a new explorer.exe?

    Cabinet cooling

    It's best to have an intake and an exhaust setup. You are getting rid of the heat building up in the cabinet but are not supplying cool air to circulate in the cabinet. I'm almost finished building my first Bartop finishing the rear panel. As you can see, your intake doesn't need to be as large as your exhaust. You want to get rid of more air than what you have going in. More towards negative air flow than positive. Hope this helps.

    New Tutorials from Avar

    Hi, A new member here. Just want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Avar and the team who are working on the new installation tutorials, etc. Since I'm a brand new user to the HyperSpin scene, I found the tutorials to be clear and to the straight to the point. I really appreciate someone explaining the steps in the video because it makes it so much easier then trying to read a manual or forums, etc. In any case, the tutorials that Avar and family published inspired me to support the cause so I upgraded to Platinum today! I look forward to learning and growing with the community. Thank you all for your work and dedication to the craft.

    I kinda do it that way because then I have a backup of the files if my cab gives up the ghost. And cuz I'm paranoid to hook XP to the net anymore, that's asking for trouble. lol

    Ahh, in your case it wouldn't really matter. What would really make the most sense is if the server ran from the cab itself. But since its running XP, it probably won't even run the app. Plus that pesky not being on the network thing.

    Noch hab ich kein System dafür. Ich fülle erst alle alle Datenbanken aus und das mach ich nach und nach. Wenn ich damit fertig bin werde ich die fehlenden Media Dateien raussuchen bzw das mach ich nebenbei. Dann suche ich mir die Systeme aus die ich am ehesten Spielen werde und konfiguriere diese, wenn ich damit fertig bin, werde ich beim Rest wohl einfach alphabetisch vorgehen. Die Systeme die schon fertig sind, habe ich in einer Excel Datei aufgelistet um einen Überblick zu haben, damit ich weiß welche noch gemacht werden müssen.

    DataBase Requests/Questions

    The official databases give preference to US games, but also contain exclusives from other regions. You may be able to find some in the Databases forum, but if you can't US only are the easiest to filter since they are based on US titles. I've seen some Top X databases in the Databases forum and I know vaderag recently posted a Top 100 DS to the Upload Here part of the Downloads section.

    Cabinet start up button

    I use a smart strip. Got the pc power switch hooked up to a arcade button like in those youtube videos. For power down i have it setup for hyperspin to shutdown the PC.

    Cabinet start up button

    You just unplug your PC power button from the motherboard pins and plug in your button instead. If I remember right it's just that easy. Then I mounted the button hidden on top of the cab. Pressing that button once powers up the PC, which then powers everything else plugged into the smart strip. So it all turns on in order (monitor, sub, speakers, marquee, CP etc...) then when I'm done powers down in order with one press right from Hyperspin. If I ever want no power running to it I can simply unplug it from the wall. That's it. No exposed or dangerous looking wiring etc... just clean and simple.

    Cabinet start up button

    Keep in mind that a cab will be sitting in non-use for a long time. Smart strips are cool and all, but a PC hooked to an AC line effectively is in bleeding-power-mode until it is turned on again. Considering this, I thought it better to set up my cab so that when the AC line is flicked back on, the PC wakes and the monitor powers on.

    Latest Hypersync updates

    Just read the message in the Hypersync program that the successor is coming: HyperBase Live. There is a thread on it, now in public beta. I have not tried it yet. As for databases: everything starts with them. As i understood, development was slow or infrequent, but now i see more effort and a database team is being assembled. Cheers

    mix emulators in a wheel

    Alternate emulators tab option in Rocketlauncher or Hyperlaunch. Pick the default emulator for that system which covers the most games for your DB and then the games that don't run on that emulator have to be set individually as an alternate.

    Why answer with a jerk response? GO LOOK HERE YA STUPID DUMBY... is pretty much what you are saying. Let's just say, Go the General Settings in RocketLauncherUI. Go to RocketLauncher tab (if not there already, the tabs are RocketLauncher, Controls, and Third Party) Click on the down arrow in the DEFAULT PLUGIN (Base Settings) from RocketLauncher to HyperSpin. Then under Paths, change DEFAULT FRONTEND PATH to your HyperSpin.exe (eg. d:\arcade\hyperspin\hyperspin.exe) location rather than the RocketLauncher.exe. Problem solved... ENJOY!
