    Version 1.0.0


    There was no entry for this on the official Database so I created my own. If the people managing the DBs want this Rom name changed, let me know and I'll update. Thanks to Kondorito and Dark13 for SWF help.

    Did you notice the new Windows 10 (1803) update, the notice at the top of the forum about a new Hyperspin release (1.5.1) to fix the issue and the other threads discussing it?

    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.

    HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    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

    Since i updated to last versión of HS i got a few main themes with some weird problem. Its any way to solve this? Ill attach a pic. Thanks.
  12. 1 point
    First off, thanks for the update. Despite its hangups, I've always found HyperSpin to be the most aesthically pleasing FE available. Sure there might be some dated issues with it but there are plenty of workarounds, and frankly, I don't think this hobby would be nearly as fun if it was stupid simple . Been absent for a long while, ever since I deemed my setup "complete" (as if that is ever really true), and it's nice to see that HS is still alive and kicking. I'm going to be starting on my first cabinet here soon, so I figured it would be a good time to jump back into the hobby and get things updated. My only question, is if there has been any significant performance improvements over the past few years? I'll be upgrading from v1.3.2 and I had some sluggish performance on my last mini-HTPC that had HyperSpin running. Not complaining if there isn't, it is flash afterall, just trying to get an idea of what benchmarks I should aim for when building the new PC. This definetely piques my interest, though I just bought a copy of Windows 10 Pro for this project *doh*. Does it have Remote Desktop installed? Also, permitting slightly off-topic question, but this will be my first instance of setting up HyperSpin in a Windows 10 environment. Do you know if the same workarounds are available to strip out/replace most of the boot sequence stuff to get a clean launch?

    Hyperspin Amiga Winuae

    Ich hoffe, ich grab hier nix aus. Das läuft bei mir so. Ist auch wesentlich einfacher mit winuae, da man alles vorher einstellen kann (Mehrdiskettenspiele, je nach Anwendung die Tastatur auf die Buttons verteilen, etc.). Du lädst einfach eine fertige Konfiguration eines Spiels (*.uae) und nicht den Emulator oder die Spieledatei (*.adf). Speedball II - Brutal Deluxe ist z.B. der Knaller auf meinem Automaten. Virocop funktioniert auch im 2 Spielermodus (einer fährt den Roboter, der andere ballert), etc.

    4-way & 8-way arcade databases?

    you can make your own in a matter of minutes use RomLister to generate a MAMELIST.XML or download one https://www.waste.org/~winkles/ROMLister/ Using Filter HyperList (found in the Don's Tools folder) Using MAMEList.XML to identify what type of joystick each game uses, you can trim the MAME XML. Open HyperList Filter out all NON 4-way joystick games --> generate 4-way joystick XML Filter out all NON 8-way joystick games --> generate 8-way joystick XML this is the same method I use to trim the MAME XML to only include the games I want. FYI HyperList can also generate a MAMElist.XML, but it can only generate a generic joy
