    HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release DOWNLOAD HERE UPGRADE ONLY DOWNLOAD With this new release, we're fixing a bug that was reported on the forums. While we were at it, we added a new feature: Animated Wheels. SWF wheels are animated wheels using the SWF format which can be created using Adobe Flash or Adobe Animate. The output SWF file can be placed in the wheel image directory just like other PNG images. Wherever there exists a PNG wheel image and a SWF wheel image with the same name, the SWF will take priority when showing on the wheel. SWF wheel items will load and be initially paused on the first frame while spinning the wheel. When you land on a menu item there will be a brief delay, then the SWF will begin playback. Further instructions and the demo swf are attached below. Demo 1942 SWF Wheel: HyperSpin 1.5.1 from EmuMovies on Vimeo. INSTRUCTIONS: If you already have an install of HyperSpin, all you need is the .exe files for HyperSpin, HyperTheme, and HyperHQ. Otherwise, unpack to the desired location as usual. Changelog: Animated Wheels Windows 10 (1803) Support From the whole team, I want to give a huge thank you to everyone that reported the recent Windows 1803 issue and worked with us to debug the problem.

    HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    While Styph's post is pretty pointless, it's to be expected. Granted, since a new version is *apparently* in dev it doesn't make any sense to dedicate dev time to the current version and having to deal with bug fixing new stuff and support. The animated wheels was probably relatively trivial to implement (insert a conditional to detect an swf wheel file and allow it to animate like all of the other elements) assuming that it wasn't already laying around in a build that wasn't released. At the same time, 2.0 has been teased for about a decade now with nothing to show for it. I can think of at least 3 or 4 release dates given to me by 3 admins in the past 2 years alone all amounting to nothing. It was evident to me about 4 years ago a new release wasn't coming any time soon which is why I switched frontends, and with each day that nothing useful is done here I'm happier with that decision. Any criticism of the lack of releases is mildly annoying but all of the fruitless "it's coming", "soon", and release dates that admins spout I personally find more annoying, and that's the fault of dev(s) and admins for teasing it for so long with no follow through. It's a prime example of the boy who cried wolf, frontend edition. That's why as ppl may have noticed, I barely visit or contribute here anymore. It's the same 5 support questions that have been asked and answered dozens of times before because nothing changes, meaningless posts about 2.0, and the quality art/db scene is virtually non-existent. Not to mention the frequent site downtimes with no explanations and general lack of maintenance in pretty much all areas of the site/forum.

    Unbelievable how much negativity there still is. It's a huge reason why good people leave the project. It's exactly why this is my first post in quite some time. Thanks to everyone involved with the 1.5.1 update. Hyperspin has stood the test of time for me and I still run it on my cab for that reason. I am very appreciative of everyone's hard work here. Thank you! - J*

    I completely understand where you're coming from as far as release info and updates. We are actively working and plan future releases. But it'll be released when it's ready. This release was to show that we are still here, and do still care. I get how some of you are feeling. I know that this process has been frustrating. All I can say is that I started working with the team because I want to see these updates too. We are moving forward. I hope that all of you give it a shot when we're there. In the meantime, let's please keep this thread on topic.

    My two cents. On the one hand, I completely understand the frustration some people have. My biggest annoyance is the lack of 16:9 support. TBH as soon as the dev(s) got wind of the community taking the time to 'convert' artwork from 4:3 to 16:9, steps should have been taken to add this. Now, as a result, I can almost guarantee you most people's setups are an odd mixture of 16:9 and 4:3 artwork. It's a mess, and it could have been prevented. I love the 4:3 themes way too much to give them up, and NO WAY am I taking the time to 'fix' what could be done by the devs. But on the other hand, I didn't pay for HyperSpin. Not one dime. I paid for FTP access, sure, but the program itself was free. It's hard to have too much entitlement with that in mind. And also... if it took most of us 'months and months' to get our personal HyperSpin setups looking good, I can only imagine how long it takes for someone developing a frontend to give us all the ability to make it look and function even better. As dated as HyperSpin is, it's still a valid frontend. It is not obsolete. It is still the flashiest frontend I've ever seen. It still impresses people. I have a feeling that this is being worked on night and day. They want to blow us away when it's released... and on some level I really respect that.

    And by the way, I want to complain about the latest Hyperspin update 1.5.1. It was working flawlessly on my end for years, and since this infamous update, weirdly enough, everything still works the way it was.

    I'm a paid up member like everyone else and I paid to be able to download the artwork I needed quickly and easily. My cab looks great and I can redownload the artwork anytime if something goes wrong. I didn't pay for Hyperspin as it's free, it works really well and does what I want it too. I don't wake up in the middle of the night worrying that a new version of Hyperspin hasn't been released, that would get in the way of my wet dreams. If it does come out I'll take a look at it and decide if I want to use it. In the mean time I will feed the kids, work, play games and raw dog Mrs Pig.

    I have a long term setup in Hyperspin (and added 3 new systems in the last months which I'll show in my thread in the next days), you guys fixed a issue I didn't even have so far, but since Windows will be updated soon, it's already fixed, so thanks for that. It's understandable that people want wide-screen and native controller support, I want it too. But since the beginning, I noticed that Hyperspin wasn't a plug & play frontend that scrapes info and you're done, much of the work is behind the scenes with RocketLauncher (which also is a manual config process and a learning curve just like Hyperspin was to me, and even this manager sometimes runs into issues from one update to another). Hyperspin is old and it's solid, you click on it and it opens right away, my setup is prettier and cooler now than ever, I basically handcrafted all my themes the way I wanted them. If new stuff is coming with more features, it's nice, otherwise, just keep it working like you guys did with the last fix and I believe a lot of people, like me, that has a solid setup with everything working will be satisfied and happy with this beauty we know and love, Hyperspin. Thank you guys, from Hyperspin community, RocketLauncher devs, Circo and Emumovies community and a lot of other cool guys from Launchbox and all over the internet, a childhood dream fulfilled, that's for sure. I just hope my HDD don't die any time soon because I don't have a 5TB spare HDD for backup.

    Well, if there's support for animated wheels I guess I should release my supergrafx set (if i find it lol). It worked only on older HS build (when a .swf was renamed to .png HS red it, on later build it crashed the software)

    HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    Yep I agree as you guys know im a massive fan of hyperspin and have met some great people while being involved in the community. I think that hyperspin 2.0 will obviously be great but personally I would be more than happy with an easy theme conversion option from 4:3 to 16:9 which seems a bit laborious at the moment, and a tweak so that hypertheme could display and edit both 4:3 and 16:9 (damn hypertheme is a superb little util :-)). Joystick menu support would be cool for people that said I have my navigation sorted via joy2key. I am extremely happy with my setup and would really hope that even with a new release that this version is supported and added to, just little tweaks really. Its solid and a superb frontend, yes there was a steep learning curve but once you get to grips with it the rewards are worth it. Keep up the great work guys, Fire10

    Yeah, people should move on, there are other alternatives. TonesMalone, this is not directly to you, it's just some words I often think of when I read people complaining about some stuff and it's not even directly only for Hyperspin. There's a misconception of the word "old" in general, stating "old" as bad or useless is a general way of thinking. Even technology, which is a field that gets "old" so fast, like, say, computers still relies on old stuff, just because they were great ideas to begin with. Do you have a replacement on par with your old mouse or keyboard? Touch won't do. Decades come and go, and probably they will still be kicking in the next decades to come. I bet people still complains they don't like mice or keyboards, because they just want to complain about something. Satisfaction may be hard to achieve at times. So just move on to what can possibly do it for you. I often read people that aren't even satisfied with the new choices, so the problem is so close it can hardly be seen. It seems that we're addicted to constant updating , yet we still play old games and find they amazing, again because they were great ideas and fun is fun, on 1920 or 2020. A lot of things break when constant updating happens, one of them is my patience. People are too much anxious and anxiety is not a good thing, blame it on constant updates. Walk forward, plate and fork, paper, smile, breath, etc., the world is so old, how much old stuff! They'll always work for me, I love it.

    So no 16:9 support! Let me guess, it's coming soon...it's been coming since 2011 at least! Still nothing. At least it works again with the new windows update and someone thought it would be a good idea to animate wheels (a feature no one ever asked for). Only 20,000 wheels to be animated.

    My Cabinet Project

    Hi Hyperspin community, I've been a Hyperspin member for a while now and this will be my first post. I spent the past couple of days writing my project down from start to almost finished.. I have yet to write down the section about software/configurations/tips/tweaks, hoping I can provide that in an update shortly. Just wanted to say a special thanks to my friends that helped me with this project as well as the others in this awesome community that didn't know it, but your questions & answers helped me get through it all.. Sorry it's pretty lengthy.. Machine name : Pac-Cade Started on the build 11/2017 Finished (well its about 98% done) Here is my couple of month’s life story of my first MAME cabinet build. Please, feel free to read for your enjoyment or skip through and look at the pretty pictures. I’m just hoping that what I went through helps others out with their build. I’ve been wanting to build a Mame Cabinet for years and just never pulled the trigger. A friend of mine surprised me with blueprints of a cabinet, I just needed to buy the wood, find the spare time and get off my lazy arse and get it started. Then another friend found a Target Toss Pro Bags cabinet for $50 on ebay. FIFTY Bucks how in the heck could I pass this deal up. As you can see from the photos below, it’s basically a Golden Tee cabinet. After I pulled the trigger, drove up with a friend, put it on his flat bed I got the beast cabinet into my garage, I just stared in awww of all the cool things I want to do with this thing. The cabinet came with the bezel, front glass, 4 buttons, marquee clear plastic, coin slots (BONUS) and a lot of dust. It was pretty much gutted but exactly what I was looking for. I wanted an extra wide cabinet so I can have some room for a 2 player setup. Right below the marquee is a wooden board with a nice size open hole that had a metal plate where the speakers go and small rectangle tinted glass which you can see it still in the above photos. With 12 screws around the edge of the control panel, I took off the lexan (similar) top layer and thankfully it was not glued down so I can use the control board. It was nice to see the metal plate for the track ball, but it just added more questions on how I’m really going to lay all this out. Still not really sure how I’m going to layout the control panel at this time, but I do know I want two player (I considered 4 player), trackball, spinner and pinball buttons. So measuring the opening where all the buttons and joystick will go, I found my area to work with. This part took the longest out of all the other projects and trying to figure out the layout was killing me slowly. I thought about laying it all out myself with button templates and looking up some cool graphics. I just couldn’t find anything I really liked and just couldn’t visualize it. Then I finally found a layout which was actually based off the Golden Tee control panel and oh my, I was sold. I can’t take credit for this so thanks goes to dmatanski at Deviant Art (hxxps://dmatanski.deviantart.com/art/MAME-large-control-panel-48650519). I found a couple of reasons why this layout is awesome. It’s based off my arcade control panel for one so I don’t have to retro-fit it, but something I never really realized…. 8 way joysticks suck for Pac Man!! So this layout has a third 4-way joystick at the top “classic setup”. Yes, this layout has lots of buttons!!!!! After I printed the layout, I purchased some Forstner bits and made a practice control panel out of MDF so I can have a feel for how it’s laid out, practice drilling and get to use the buttons/joysticks I bought. I had my control panel upstairs hooked to what I was going to use; a Pi3 with retropi installed, using an external 500gig HD, attract mode, themes, video previews installed. Retropi is very slick, easy to setup and pretty darn cool and I think it work well in a cabinet. Stuff I bought at this time- Trackball – 90 bucks off Amazon 2 player buttons and 8-way joystick.. Here is where I think some will say I went cheap, and yes I slightly agree. But I do like them and maybe at a later date I’ll upgrade. Called Easyget LED illuminated 2 player, $67 off Amazon. 3.5 inch circle speaker covers Light bar from Home Depot for the marquee I happened to have an old CRT and my old speakers with subwoofer, so I temporary put them in place. I also removed the upper black wooded border so I can make room for a 2nd monitor idea frame out of MDF. And yeah the previous wood was glued to the marquee bottom board and it broke off.. eh, no biggie. While playing on the Pi3, I just found that some mame roms were not work and customizing it was tedious. So, I bailed on the Pi3 and bought a 2.8ghz quad core mobo, 8 gigs ram from a friend and I had some extra parts laying around - 256gig SSD, sata 500gig, nvidia video card. So, now I’m using Hyperspin/rocketlauncher which I’ll go in more setup detail later in this brain dump of mine. I had a lot of friends to bounce ideas off and one of them gave me a 28” TV, which I considered to use for that retro look, so I bought a VGA to HDMI adapter from Amazon. I had some trouble with my PC recognizing it adapter and I could never get the TV to display. So, I bailed on it and started pricing out LCDs. I can still use this TV for my old consoles which I collect, so it’s a win win for me. I had a quote for a sign shop to have them print my control panel on polycarbonate but it was too expensive for me. I reached out to my friends again and found one that knew a guy that had a full size plotter and once I gave him the dimensions of the control panel he printed me out 4 copies on sticky back vinyl, just in case I screwed up. So, onto the secondary monitor thoughts and plans. My first thought was to buy a LCD screen as my marquee and have it just scroll through the game marquees when one is selected, but that area is fairly skinny and the LCDs are VERY expensive. I thought about designing my own marquee and using the space right below it for a laptop LCD. So this open area right below the marquee area would be a perfect place to put in a 15” laptop LCD. I did some research about scrolling marquees and found an awesome thread about Hyper Marquee and (EDS) Event Dispatch System. And thanks to Mamefan for his youtube channel for setting up Hyper Marquee and EDS which helped me TONS! (hxxps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbcUzyfMtPc) I had an old laptop that was dead but the screen still worked so I ripped it out and found the model number and looked on ebay for a LCD controller board. Bingo! clicked on buy now and it arrived in a couple of days! So with Hyperspin loaded with HyerMarquee and EDS, I was able to display the rom marquee and its flyer. Learning those two new programs did take some getting used to, but once you work on it for a while it’s pretty darn easy. If the marquee isn’t available it uses hyperspins wheel image and if a flyer isn’t available it just displays a default picture (ready player one). Going portrait mode on the 2nd screen really makes sense and awesome looking. I’m able to easily add both graphics since most of the flyers are basically portrait. Below is my two screen temporary layout held up with some duct tape. The one issue I did notice with this setup, if I power off the LCD controller board it doesn’t turn back on without physically pressing the power button. I thought that HDMI when the source is powered on it will turn on the monitor, but no matter what I did or how long I waited it would never turn on the 2nd screen. So, screw it! I fixed this issue by shorting out the power on/off button on the smaller pcb board that plugs into the LCD controller board. When the PC turns off or by the power strip and then turned back on, the LCD board comes to life and I have video. The 2nd screen even goes into powersaving mode and it will turn off when I turn off the PC. Onto the 2nd LCD frame. I took measurements and even cut a groove for the screen to set in. My wood working skills are not the best at all and I normally have to measure 5 times and then cut/screw-up/buy new piece, measure two more times and then maybe I’ll hit my mark. Luckily enough the piece I bought was big enough for that 2nd try I needed! You can see on the upper right of the picture the original frame I ripped out. I thought it turned out pretty nice after semi-gloss black paint job and screwed in place. Another couple picture showing the mounting of the LCD controller board and 2nd monitor frame. So, what to do about the actual marquee area, I thought? I’m a huge Pac Man fan and was thinking an actual Pac Man marquee but I decided to just design one up myself and come up with a name of my cabinet, Pac Cade how original…. right? Some picture googling and paint.net skills I made this up and had it printed at Staples on what they called vinyl for only 6 bucks! What a deal.. slapped it on the plastic and there ya go! I just need to figure out what to do with the side-art. I do have light poking through the edges which I’m not a fan about, so I need to figure out what to do there. I think I’m making good progress on it. But what I’m dreading the most, you might ask? Well it’s drilling the control panel holes through the wood/plexi/vinyl.. HOW will I pull this off! I kept prolonging that day when I had to start drilling. It made me nervous just thinking about it. But that will be a later day, time for me to fix this horrible CRT area. I found a 30” TV at my local computer shop for real cheap and all I would need to do is route/sand the sides on the cabinet down about ¼”. But when I got there my main question was, when I turn on/off my PC what will the TV do and we never got a straight answer from the techs. Looked online and the specs said auto on with HDMI power, but I just didn’t get the warm and fuzzies. So I ended up going with a Dell 28” monitor. It fit without any issues at all, I was very pleased with the results. With some scrap wood I made bracers on the back and bottoms of the LCD screen to keep it in place. Boy It sure did take me a long time to measure and make sure each side of the screen was at the same height. Once that was all in place. I had another anxiety attack since I had to now measure and cut another frame for the monitor. This time it only took me one attempt and look at how nice that fits. There is hope for me after all! Spray painted it black and onto the next grueling task.. the dreaded control panel. Sorry, going to go in more detail on this as this section was slightly stressful. At this point I didn’t really research into what I should use. At my house (we just moved) the previous owner used plexiglass for an additional layer on our windows. I thought, score I can spare a couple for my cabinet and save some space. I looked up what to use to cut plexiglass and found that using a Stepping Bit is a good way to go, so off to the local hardware store! I needed to figure out a way to mark my buttons and joysticks on the vinyl and board. I used a drafting compass draw a 30mm and 24mm circle on cardboard and with a hole poked through the middle, booya I had my center. I then laid the cardboard circle on the vinyl and marked the center with a marker. Then used point of the compass to poke a hole through the vinyl. This part wasn’t so bad since I had 3 other vinyl sheets on the ready. I then used a utility knife to cut the lines into it. Geez, this part was a little unnerving. Once all the holes were done in the vinyl I laid that on top of the control board and just marked my pilot holes. I also bought a dowel rod and plug the original 4 holes of the control panel. Used my Forstners bit and a hand drill. There are two sizes holes here – 30MM and 24MM. Mainly because the Easyget buttons came with 8 30mm and 4 24mm size buttons. It’s heartbreak and stress time. It didn’t take long to figure out plexiglass will not work, at least what I had in my basement. It might be too brittle or sun damaged etc.. The sound this stepping bit had on the plexiglass was horrific! As you can see from the right pic that cracks & chips were very visible. WHAT TO DO!! My local hardware store had lexan polycarbonate and WOW what a HUGE difference that made. The sheet was expensive but well worth it. The stepping bit drilled into this stuff like a hot knife in butter. But this part was very stressful and it took a while because I didn’t want to screw up. After many practice runs with a circle cutter bit on scrap lexan, I made my final 3” hole. Here is the end result of my control panel finally all drilled and assembled. As well as adding what I have for joysticks/buttons and trackball. Looking pretty good so far. Just need to order the other 4-way joystick/buttons and the spinner. I ordered the other set of buttons and joystick and then decided to spin up Paint.Net for one ugly looking wiring schematics. This did really help figure out where everything is going. The two purple buttons on the right and left of the panel are the pinball buttons that I’ll drill on the side of the control panel box. After doing some troubleshooting, I had to route my pinball buttons on my first button controller board. Splitting them up between two controller boards seemed to cause some confusion even with JoytoKey installed. Here are a couple of screenshots of the pinball holes I drilled out as well as I hooked up the LED switch to my coin slot buttons. SO cool! Turns out Christmas LED bulbs work great for replacement bulbs for the coin buttons. After some time I did finally pulled the trigger on getting the rest of the buttons and my 4-way joystick. I ended up with white player/coin buttons and the rest blue and I think it came out pretty nice. Not sure why in this picture my red buttons look more yellowish. Still holding off on the spinner, they are not cheap. After I got my 4-way joystick I read its small paper doc and it showed me how to make it an 8-way and shockingly enough I looked at my other two 8-way joysticks and they are also convertible.. Go figure.. here I was dying to play Pac Man during this build and I could have if I would have just converted a joystick! And the 98% final results. With 4 added quarters from 1980 - 1984 on the glass... Some high level software and info- Win10 Hyperspin HyperSpin Start up script RocketLauncher HyperMarquee EDS registered Joytokey Mame (w/ high score save) crap ton of system emulators I figured out a neat way to make a Main menu item for a second MAME selection for multiplayer that I created a database for. PinballFX 2 and 3 (still trying to get 3 to work) JukeBox Made most of my own themes I know I'm forgetting something... =) I would be more than happy to answer any questions or share my config settings. If you want to see a video, I can post one.

    Yeah, there are more modern FE but let me tell a thing: I had friends got lost in xbmc/kodi just lo launch a movie but i've never seems someone got lost into hyperspin.Hyperspin is the mostly customizable FE and the most intuitive FE. The strong and weak point of HS is flash itself: you can do great things with it BUT performance is poor, so you need a beefy machine. Just an example: HS support yahoo! weather forecast, the software was never inteded to do so (obviously it support weather forecast as i did some as3 coding in the .swf). HS probably could support 16:9 themes with little changes BUT themes would need to be redone, it's the same on every FE (at last if you want them to look GOOD)

    Definitely looking forward to widescreen support. That will be a welcome addition and to be honest I thought it would've happened by now. I've been waiting for a long time for it, still on 1.2 and haven't upgraded because I didn't see the point. That being said, this front end is still super wicked. I have no intention of exploring anything else. I absolutely love the customization. Moreover, with the help of some here (Dark 13 and Kondorito) 16x9 is possible via a workaround. I just converted all my PBFX2 themes and they look great. Yes, it could use an update and I hope it happens soon. Still a great frontend though, no need for folks to be so upset. Honestly, what other front end comes close? I haven't seen one. Sidenote: I still can't believe that people don't just choose one sound effect for their wheels. How can you guys listen to all the different sounds with every wheel click? That would drive me crazy Pick one and standardize on it. I chose the Guantlet 'gong' sound when you enter a credit and it's so much better. Get it together people.

    HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    For Retro games no, for newer games like BF1 or FC5 yes but I can't really tell because I cleaned up my PC and I've managed to fix some things unrelated to the OS itself. But two days ago I needed to use my external DVD player/burner which wasn't working in that usual Windows 10 Build, after installing the LTSB version it worked as it should, if it was conflicting with some driver or program I can't tell, but I can now use my external DVD burner. Note that I tried using it in the old usual Windows 10 build, and it worked OK in the new one before the cleaning (physical cleaning, dust, etc.,) For some odd reason, I can now reach the same overclock speed for my GPU internet users showed in Youtube and forums out there, I couldn't get the same results without artifacts or driver failure, and now it works. I have two external HDDs and one of them was only working in a 2.0 USB port. I don't blame the OS because I'm not sure why these things didn't work as they were supposed to, but they are just working now and I'm glad for that. Booting this version feels like I'm using a SSD, I'm using a normal HDD, but I noticed it also has to do with the fast startup feature that probably wasn't ON in my former W10 build. Even so, since it won't load unneeded bloatware, it adds to the faster booting. Just note that I haven't used this build for more than 2 days, but I can update you guys with my experience with this version. Also, I backed up my User folder, programs that were installed, etc, I didn't even reinstalled my browser, just moved them to the new OS. The only thing I reinstalled was Nvidia drivers and Netframeworks, alongside with DirectX and VC Redist that are needed for PC games and emulators, also Bebas Neue that is the font RocketLauncher uses for fades by default. Yeah I forgot, DS4Windows is also portable so was just moved as well. PS: I clean my PC from time to time and probably cleaned it 2 or 3 times under the SAME Windows 10 Build I used for at least 3 years until yesterday, and the same things that weren't working as I said above, kept not working after the cleaning. For example, I've been using one of my external HDDs in the USB 2.0 port for 2 years or more until now. It is my friend, and I formated the HDD (without the fast format option ON), and it sure is much smoother now. Things that our friend Matchaman said earlier caught my attention, first the unneeded updates (at least for me), I remember the Creator's Update was a full blown downloaded OS under the older build and that update took hours to conclude, after it installed, I couldn't tell what new feature I could use for my common usage. I'm sure that new features are useful for some people, but you know. And now they are again sending new updates that seems to have broken more stuff, Hyperspin wasn't the only victim, imagine if you have a GOG collection or even newer stuff that suddenly won't work anymore. The LTSB version didn't come with Cortana, One Drive, Edge or any other bloatware that I never used. I installed DS4Windows, MSI Afterburner that were the only programs that started with my older Windows and in less than a minute after I turn my PC ON, it's basically ready to use. I totally recommend this version.

    @matchaman, I installed LTSB Windows 10 version and it was the best thing I ever did for a long time since Windows 8, then 8.1 and 10 (with those ridiculous updates), this version is by far much faster and smoother than my previous Windows 10 build, not even OneDrive comes pre installed, just the system itself with Windows Defender updates.

    Shield me from the Sea!

    Right peeps, this might prove to be an interesting "build log" on the forum! As some of you know, I'm currently on a commercial support vessel being converted in to a luxury yacht for my uncle. It's a family project... I decided to bring my Shield TV onboard and he's impressed with what it can do and how easy it is to use. There's a "home cinema" below deck but it was extremely low tech. Ripped out the ancient CRT TV and replaced it with a 2nd hand LCD TV for now. Definite improvement BUT a long way from what we ultimately want. Exterior work on the yacht is going ahead in Latvia and I'm trying to plan this out in the 5 days it'll take us to get there from Norway. Some advice and recommendations would be welcome with the following topics... First issue is internet connectivity. Forking out for internet via satellite isn't really an option as it's uber expensive. Yes we can use our phones as WiFi access points BUT we don't get signal down in the cinema room (odd as i do in both the engine rooms). I don't have much experience with the USB dongles for internet, although if memory serves some Asus routers can use them if connected. If i can locate the router to provide WiFi to the cabins and run a CAT cable down to the cinema room, that seems to be a viable option. Second issue is the display. A short throw projector and screen seems like a sensible choice to me. I can have a small cabinet to hide it and the STV from view. If any of you reading this can recommend what you're using or one that's good value for money, that would be awesome! Waffled on enough, I'll attach a few photos and upload more as the project progresses. Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.

    Maybe to put ease to release woes, as you are developing you could take screenshots or announce features that you are working on? That way it keeps interest, the stuff doesn’t even have to be complete just something like started liking into wide screen capability, ran into x issue is exciting at least for me lol. Just better than radio silence. Happy bill is still around Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Antique Arcade

    Hi everyone! Long time no Steve! With the help of Vincent Salazar at arcade86 I was able to make an arcade dream of mine realized. I wanted an arcade that spoke to a higher degree of class and style. Something that would mesh vintage/antiquelove with my gamer nerd inner self. Here is my cabinet, Antique Arcade: The marquee isn't done yet. I'm kinda averse to text and LED. I'm thinking stained glass in Amber tones. Any ideas where to find something like that? Here's some pics: https://m.imgur.com/a/aBCgpKA Much love, Steve

    ScummVM on Shield TV

    For future reference to avoid any retroarch headaches, I recommend to switching almost all directories to an area of the shield to u have access to...that includes overlays, saves, config,info file, controller remaps,....the only things that should stay default are the cores location and maybe the shaders location....reason behind it is u can manually edit any configs or manually add overlays per game via a batch or import ur own core info files if custom...if u chose to delete retroarch and start from scratch at least u have everything saved on hand and all u will need to do is downlaod a different version of retroarch and go back to directories and map them again to the custom locations

    Really nice to see something with more power than a Pi going in a retro case. I have the dolphin bar and for the price tag its pretty awesome for wiimotes and dolphin emulator. (Going on 2 games of tennis I played) not a wii fan. Wanted it for lightguns but was a non starter really. Wiimotes+dolphin 100% get it. Anything else android wise no point except for a testing project. I will get you dimemtions tomorrow as going to bed now

    TurboGrafx 16 3D Boxes

    Ok, after long reads and checks over the web, I found out that PC Engine came with black jewel cases until the end of 1991, and then started to produce the games in white jewel cases. So I will be sorting out the 2D covers in two groups (black and white), and use two different templates on them for accuracy. However there is one thing that is being very difficult to find/achieve, and I think that for the first version of the set I will skip that step, and that is, the custom spine for each of the 400 games. This, unless somebody has a good source in which the spines are similarly scanned, so I can automate the trimming and perspective process. Please let me know if you do, or if you don't, but have a standard spine template that can be a place holder for the first version of the set. Cheers! EDIT: Sorry @RetroKenesis for hijacking the topic with my nonsense. I will be opening a new one now for the PC Engine 3D box set, and will be waiting for this TG16 finished one bro!

    HyperBase vs HyperSync

    Unfortunately it's been a lot of time without any HS updates and a lot of people is moving to other frontends. Hope there's a revolution soon, so we can keep this project alive.
