    Version 1.4.16

    54,012 downloads

    NOTE: IF DOWNLOAD IS FAILING PLEASE DISABLE ANTIVIRUS HyperSpin version 1.4.16 (2016 Edition) 016 Added video smoothing 015 Added can now use default theme for main menu. Whats different about having a default theme as some may now is that they don't get reloaded when going from one item to next that don't have themes. This allows for a cleaner experience vs reloading individual copies of default themes. Added if a theme doesn't have a background in the zip file then it was only attempting to load a png background, from the backgrounds folder of the item name. Now it can load swf and also default.png and default.swf. Added Shortcut key F6 to toggle fullscreen and windowed. For windowed to work resolution must be set to resolution lower than fullscreen. Added Ledblinky 9 for main menu and Ledblinky 8 for switching menus (not sure if this one is even needed) Fixed - HyperSpin not shutting down sometimes. 014 Fixed issue when launching certain software/emulators and HS taking focus. Fixed background music not working. Put music in Media\System\Sound\Background Music\Name.mp3 013 Fixed mp4 looping causing stuttering or black video Fixed returning from emu causing moving 1 wheel item when spinner is enabled Added Horizontal Wide wheel style for widescreen themes that can fit more wheel items 012 Fixed spinner and trackball only working in 1 direction Changed more fixes to joy controls. 011 Changed made some changes to joystick behavior, POV was interferring with analog and vice versa Fixed joystick not being able to stop intro video Fixed returning to HS from certain emulators causes HS to be squished. Fixed main menu always returning to last_system used when starting even though last_game is off. 010 Fixed no speakers bug, no speakers or headphones plugged in would crash HS Fixed HL relative path issue(i think) 009 Fixed strobe animation not working. I had to slow it down, due to the speed up of the new HS, i had to slow it down by a factor of 4 to get it to even work. So if it doesn't match up with HyperTheme, you know why. Fixed themes freezing when exiting theme. Fixed joystick support (i think) 008 Fixed skip up and skip down number not working Fixed letter wheel using wrong direction per wheel style Fix pin style was backwards, moves left to right now Added ability to use mp4 as intro video 007 Fixed % in filename issue when playing videos. Changed the behavior of pin and horizontal wheels due to a lot of complaints. Left and Right move the wheel and Up and Down select the letter wheel. The directions are fixed and should behave as expected now. 006 Added smoothing to letter images. Changed path to HScript, delete your old HScript.ahk and autohotkey.dll, Unzip now the script is in \Scripts\HScript\HScript.ahk, this allows the autohotkey.dll not to interfere with the one other programs use in the main root, sorry to those that got their old autohotkey.dll overwritten. 005 Release to private beta 004 Changed - See above Fixed - HyperLaunch error, hopefully. 003 Added - Allow relative path to launcher i.e ( .\Folder\HyperLaunch.exe") where the dot represents the HyperSpin directory. Doesn't do relative double dots though for going up a folder. Added - Disable item in main menu i.e ( <game name="MAME" enabled = "0"/>, just add enabled ="0" to any system and it will disable it. if there is no enabled attribute or you have it set to 1 then the game will show. Added - Disable item in sub menu , same as above. 002 Added - Smoothing to special artwork png's Added - HyperLaunch not forced as launcher. You can now set the full path to the launcher in the ini. Has to be fullpath\launcher.exe in the ini file. If your hyperlaunch isn't working then you must add hyperlaunch.exe to your hyperlaunch path in the ini. Added - Can run a script everytime you land on a wheel item to allow scripters to add interactive features to HS. The script is located in a new scripts folder called "Scripts".

    I hope there's some Sega Saturn fans out there, because I really put some love into this one. If you are... this is the Sega Saturn setup you want, I promise you. Honestly at this point, just describing what this is, is probably the most exhausting part. If you don't know, you should check out my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' pack for a better description. For those that *do* know, this is my most thorough one yet. Box backs, 2D box fronts, and 3D box artwork for every single game. I always try to do this if possible. Disc scans for all but 30 games. Full publisher wheels for every single publisher, all taken directly from the Sega Saturn era for authenticity. This pack also contains a custom database, using the *publisher* as the standard, and not the developer. I added 23 new games. Don't worry, they all have artwork and wheels. And, I even included videos for the new games, so you don't have to go hunting down any new media. All the typical genres you're expecting, e.g. Action, Adventure, etc. I'm not going to explain all of the custom wheels this time. If you know how to add 2+2, then it should all be self explanatory. Credit and thanks: Most of the artwork and wheels came from the community. I added some disc scans (located in artwork4), however, we're still missing 30 or so games. I actually resorted to photoshopping ebay images to get a few. That sucks, let me tell you. But...! I made them look decent, anyways. I turned to segaretro.com to fill in blanks, and for the new games I added to the database. It's a great site for researching anything Sega. Many thanks to them for not putting a crappy watermark on their images, like so many other sites of that nature do. All the publisher wheels and custom database wheels were done by me. It was a lot of work. I probably have a solid week in this. My hope is that this inspires someone to do something similar. A brief description of the new games added, and why they were added: 1. Akumajo Dracula X - Gekka no Yasokyoku (Japan) - This is the Japanese version of 'Castlevania - Symphony of the Night, and it has added features (2 new areas, new items, and the ability to play as Maria) that the PS1 version does not. It's worth checking out if you're a fan of the PS1 version. 2. Burning Fest. Limit Over. (Hack) (Japan) (Translated En) - This is a translated version of the hacked version of Asuka 120% Burning Fest Limited. The first of 8 fully playable translated games available on this platform, that were left out of the original database. 3. Daytona USA - CCE Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink version of Daytona USA - Championship Circuit Edition. Considered one of the rarest Sega Saturn games. I think of HyperSpin as a sort of 'digital Museum,' and no museum is complete without the rarest game. A database should not be about including only the most fun games, or leaving out duplicates. A database should be *complete*, and it should be up to the user to decide what to include or exclude. 4. Dragon Force II - Kami Sarishi Daichi ni (Japan) (Translated En) - The 2nd of 8 translations available. The description has the alternate title of 'Dragon Force II - The Godforsaken Land (Japan) (Translated En).' 5. Dungeon Master Nexus (Japan) - A Japanese RPG. It's in Japanese so you won't be able to play it unless you have a guide or can read the language. But, it's a Saturn exclusive. As far as I'm concerned, every Saturn Exclusive should be in the database as a matter of principal. This is gaming history here people. If you don't want unplayable games in your HyperSpin, don't add it. 6. Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Japan) (Disc 1 & 2) - Considered to be one of the best imports, contains 'Tower of Doom' and 'Shadow Over Mystara.' It's playable, even with the language barrier. 7. Final Fight Revenge (Japan) - A totally playable Japanese game. In fact, if you have your system settings set to 'English,' the game is totally in English. This game should have been in the original database for sure. 8. Grandia - Digital Museum (Japan) - Another Japanese RPG that you probably won't be able to play due to the language barrier, but again, a Sega Saturn Exclusive. There's no law that says you have to add every single game in the database. But if you're a completionist, and you love this system and it's history, it belongs in the database. 9. Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - Totally playable, the language barrier is practically a non issue. 10. Policenauts (Japan) (Translated) (Disc 1-3) - The sequel to Hideo Kojima's first game ever, 'Snatcher.' The 3rd of 8 translations. 11. Sega Rally Championship Plus - Netlink Edition (USA) - Supports the 3D control pad and has some bugfixes, and is considered the 'definitive version.' 12. Segata Sanshirou Shinken Yuugi (Japan) - A collection of mini games. Somewhat playable. A Sega Saturn Exclusive, starring the funny Japanese guy from the Sega Saturn commercials that aired in Japan. 13. Shining Force III - Premium Disc (Japan) (Translated En) - The 4th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 14. Shining Force III - Scenario 1 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 5th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. The USA version was already in the database (Shining Force III (USA) ). I did not include the title following 'scenario 1' as it would make the display name ridiculously long, and wouldn't display properly on your HyperSpin. 15. Shining Force III - Scenario 2 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 6th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. We only got 'Scenario 1' in North America in the form of 'Shining Force III (USA).' 16. Shining Force III - Scenario 3 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 7th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 17. Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru (Japan) - A Sega Saturn Exclusive. From Wikipedia: "The game has the distinction of being one of the Sega Saturn's rarest and most difficult games to obtain, mainly due in part to Time Warner Interactive ceasing operations after only 7,500 copies of it were manufactured. eBay auctions for the game can start for as high as $1,000." "Retro Gamer included it on their list of ten essential Saturn imports, described as "a delightfully nutty game that takes elements of Shinobi and Alisa Dragoon and marries them to insanely over-the-top action scenes that involve gigantic frogs and fantastic scaling and rotating effects. " 18. Shoujo Kakumei Utena - Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari (Japan) (Translated En) (Disc 1 & 2) - The 8th of 8 translations. Seems to be a graphic novel type game. 19. Virtual-On - Cyber Troopers - Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink Edition game of the same name. A two player online version. I'm not sure if that means anything to a gamer or not, perhaps an emulator can implement the feature somehow. 20. X-Men vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - The definitive version of my personal favorite in the Capcom 'Vs.' series. Puts the PS1 version to shame (which lacked several of the arcade features). This game is totally playable, language barrier is barely an issue (if at all). A few tips on making the translations work. I'm using the Mednafen emulator. It's the best. The Retroarch Mednafen Saturn core isn't as good, it doesn't have 3D Control Pad support working properly, and the Bios settings come up for every single game. That being said, you're still better off getting all your files in bin/cue format (which is what the RetroArch core uses). If you download a game in any other format, try mounting the disc image to a virtual drive (like Daemon tools lite), then open up ImgBurn, and convert the image to bin/cue. If you apply a translation patch, and the patch changes the format, follow the same process to get the game back to a cue and single bin file format. If a game gives you a 'disc read error' in the emulator itself, try this process also. If Imgburn gives you an error while trying to convert anything, you know you have a bad file.

    By popular demand; here you have the Nintendo Famicom 2D box set - This set contains over 1.200 covers! - Horizontal, vertical and square boxes; all matching the original source art - Some boxes are not from the official XML but I have created them in case those games are added in the future - The covers have great image quality (thanks to @fire10 for the source material!) Bear in mind that this is version 1.0; I will be further reviewing the covers (as a lot of them could get better coloring, borders, cleaning), and update them if necessary. Comments, likes and constructive suggestions are always welcome! If you have a game that is not present in the set, let me know Enjoy the pack Kondorito

    MSU-1 SNES CD Full Wheel

    I've created a complete wheel for most of the SNES CD MSU-1 games that are currently available. The wheel is based on SimplyAustins SNES Wheel as I like the clean look and background and have also used some of Aorin's Video Snaps from the great game hacks wheel that was released. I've created mock up SNES CD covers and CD images based on some of the box art for the games out there. The RocketLauncher module is setup to launch the games with Retroarch using the BSNES core, its my first wheel release so hopefully everything works ok. You can download the full wheel with rocketlauncher fades and pause backgrounds here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!As2jkrtIr7k7gR5gk57jEa1sCuYw Update: I've added Zelda Parallel Worlds, Zelda Goddess of Wisdom and Final Fantasy 6 Balance and Ruin, I've also added the complete database XML file that was missing. Complete wheel is around 1 GB for artwork and videos. To get all the games setup takes about 30 GB. Update 10-14-2017: Added Donkey Kong Country, Joe & Mac, Rockman & Forte, Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Super Castlevania IV ,Super Ghouls n Ghosts, Super Mario Kart, Terranigma Instructions: 1. Create new wheel and copy over Hyperspin media and XML database. 2. Add a new system to Rocketlauncher called "SNES CD" and Copy over the Rocketlauncher files (Media, Modules & Rocketlauncher UI) into your Rocketlauncher folder. 3. Setup Retroarch (SNES CD) in your global emulator, set your path to match where you have retroarch installed and setup the module to the "RetroArch (SNES CD).ahk" that is included in the download pack. 4. Go to https://www.zeldix.net/f46-msu-1-hacks-database and download most of the game patches and pcm audio files. Most games use Lunar IPS to patch the original super nintendo rom .sfc file to the MSU-1 version. Create a new folder for each game named to match the name of the game in the xml file eg. BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1). To Use The BSNES Balanced Retroarch Core: In Rocketlauncher in the global emulator settings for the SNES CD system go to the "Rom Settings" tab. You can keep this setup as is with the bsnes balanced core, it requires the included .bml files. The bml files are like a cue file that tells the emulator what msu file to use and what audio tracks to use. The game must have all the required files in a folder named to match the game in the XML file. To Use The SNES9X Retroarch Core: Under the "Rom Settings" tab in Rocketlauncher change the LibRetro_Core to "snes9x_libretro". Rename the rom file, pcm files and .msu so they all have the same name. For Example to setup BS Zelda the folder must contain the following: BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1).sfc BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1).msu BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1)-1.pcm BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1)-2.pcm BS Zelda Map 1 (MSU-1)-3.pcm etc. Now you just launch the .sfc file directly like you would with a normal snes game with rocketlauncher, no need for a bml file. You can check out a preview video here: Video Preview for the latest update:

    MAJOR UPDATE Hi again, sorry I never update this topic. I don't really come here anymore. I'd say this constitutes another big update announcement. Since last posting here, I've redone the entire Sega Master System, Sega Game Gear, Nintendo Game Boy and Nintendo Game Boy Color sets. All now are sharp, clean and smooth 60fps clips. There will be more to come as I've also recently finished Famicom Disk System and I'm working through the huge Game Boy Advance set now. I'm not going to list the amount of vids I did as I don't remember lol So just hop on Hypersync or Emumovies FTP, and grab all the new sets! I've also done all the latest Eng translated roms too for various systems. So check for the following: Sega Master System Sega Game Gear Nintendo Game Boy Nintendo Game Boy Color

    The "UHD Sega Dreamcast 3D Jewel Case Project" is a team effort between myself, @fire10, and @Black Hazor. It is very much a work in progress. Our goal is to provide the community with an Ultra Hi Definition, future-proofed set of Sega Dreamcast box art. Black Hazor has managed to collect high quality scans for over half of the current official database, and has actually volunteered to purchase some of the missing games. He truly jumpstarted this project... because I was on the fence about just putting together something far less extraordinary. Fire10 started this project, and has contributed design ideas, invaluable feedback, and is currently working on 'special' jewel cases that will not work with the basic templates we've already designed. Thanks goes to @goofers for providing the PAL template. Special thanks to @Avar, @Kondorito, for feedback and tips, and especially @JSinn for help polishing the final versions of our templates.

    [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    Hi All, After my unexpected upgrade to Section Admin I just wanted to let everyone know I will be focusing my efforts more on the download section. Notice It will be a long standing project due to the nature of the beast. I am a little stretched for spare time so please dont expect anything to drastic!! I am also less accomplished than most of this community when it comes to artwork quality. The Plan 1. Migrate solid community approved artwork over to the Official section 2. Create new categories where needed 3. Request users return to posting their content in announcment threads before uploading to the download section. 4. Find some active Media Approvers How Can You Help Please post here content, from the Upload Here section, you feel is of high enough quality to be classed "official" To be continued.....

    HyperUpdate HyperSpin News

    Every day as time/content permits, I'm going to try to make a post on the HyperSpin facebook to try to publicly highlight and give credit for some of the great work that goes on in the HyperSpin community. I put some recent examples at the bottom of this post. I'm hoping that fellow HyperSpinners can help me pin down awesome projects by nominating developments here or via PM. Also, if anyone would like their work to be in the spotlight let me know! I don't want to focus on any one specific aspect of HyperSpin either so if people are working their butts off on anything at all, whether it be a database, artwork, a personal cabinet project, a third-party tool, anything at all, let me know If I ever miss updates to your project, please don't feel slighted! I try to keep track of everything cool I see on the forums but my days are hectic and I sometimes lose track For example I saw a really clean looking Epoch update a few weeks ago from someone but haven't been able to find it again Cheers!

    HyperSpin is not just a way to play games. That is secondary to me. I see it as a sort of 'digital museum.' That is the inspiration behind my 'Ultimate' default themes. You don't just get the best quality images (box arts, cartridge scans, wheels) I could find. You also get a huge number of custom genre databases, showcasing the games in a filtered fashion. Want to check out all of the 'Mega Mouse' games? With this setup, you can. Want to check out some 'Sega Channel' exclusive games? No problem. Want to see every game that Konami published? I've got you covered. I've tried to imagine every common filter for games that you could imagine, and implemented it in a fun way. Because emulation to me is about preservation of our culture. 20 years from now, your kids and your grandkids will be able to look at the work we've done here, and hopefully appreciate our culture as much as you and I do. This is my contribution to the community, I hope you enjoy it. If you like the work that I do, please show your appreciation by clicking the 'like' button or saying a few words. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way, and it keeps me motivated to keep giving you more. What is included: Full (as in every game) wheel art, full cartridge art, full 3D box art, 857/954 2D box backs +2D box fronts (this will display in Rocketlauncher's 'Pause' if you have it configured correctly), an updated and very much improved official database (using the 'publisher' instead of the developer), 116 different publisher wheels/databases (all but 14) including wheel art, several custom genre wheels+art+backgrounds, regular genre wheels+art+backgrounds, a default theme, letters, sounds, pointer, and every game theme I could find (a couple of them fixed+improved). What is not included: Videos, games Instructions: 1.In your HyperSpin\media folder, rename your current 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis' to disable it (in details view, it will autosort to the beginning of the list). Drag and drop the new 'Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the HyperSpin\media folder. You can delete the old '1Sega Genesis' folder later on, if you decide to keep everything included in this pack. 2.In your 'Databases' folder, rename the 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis to disable the original database folder. Drag and drop the 'Databases\Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the 'databases' directory. 3. Copy or move your old Sega Genesis videos (or download new ones from emumovies.com) into the new HyperSpin\media\Sega Genesis\Video folder. 4. Open 'HyperHQ/Wheel Settings' go to your Sega Genesis wheel, and click on the 'wheel' tab. Change the wheel image sizes as follows: Large: 290 Small: 195 This is so that the wheels don't interfere with the Genesis console/cartridges theme, and everything displays properly. The proper settings are pictured below. Credits: Most or all sounds, wheels, letters, themes, 3D box art and cartridge art came from various sources in the community, I take no credit. 2D box fronts and backs I got from the following thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ and credit goes to the respective contributors. The default theme is not mine, however it was tweaked by me, as were the themes for 'ShadowHunt' and Streets of Rage 2 (to make the videos display correctly), and Sonic Spinball (background was not sized properly). My own personal contributions: 1. The database. I went through the official database, and changed the manufacturer field to reflect the publisher of the game, rather than the developer. Most people don't care about some obscure developer that developed one or two games, only to never be heard from again. People remember the name on the box. That is what i wanted displayed in the info above the game name. Other changes include adding "Battle Mania Daiginjou - Trouble Shooter Vintage (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)." This is an alternate trasnlation for "Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)," as the creator of both patches stated that both versions were worth a playthrough for fans of the game. I ditched the one French translation "Surging Aura" and reverted it back to the Japanese game. No sense putting extra effort into patching a game or hunting down a patched game if you still can't understand what is being said. Miracle Piano is not an adventure game. Changed to 'Educational' genre. Body Count is a gun game, not a platformer. I'm concerned about the quality of the genre field in the official database as well, but I already put 2 days into this, and to be frank I have better things to do. Hopefully someone will overhaul it in the future. For now, I consider what I've done a significant improvement over the official database and I'm betting you will too. Last change - if a translated game has an alternate title in English, that was preferred as the 'description' entry. The 'name' entry was left alone so that your videos will still work without having to rename them. 2. Collecting, editing, and creating publisher genre wheel art for 116 different publishers for the Sega Genesis. I combined 'Virgin' and 'Virgin Games,' 'Hi Tech Expressions' and 'Hi Tech Entertainment,' and 'Sportsmaster' and 'Codemasters' (Sportsmaster was a shortlived sub label of Codemasters, and I couldn't find a quality scan, and since it was just a few games, I just combined them). There are only 14 rather obscure publishers that were not included, and they are: C&E, Chuanpu Technology, CYX, Home Data, KABAL_MK (creator of Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy Hack, so not even an actual publisher so much as a hacker), King Tec Information Co., Never Ending Soft Team, Senchi Technology, Shogakukan Production, Sik, Soft Vision, Sportsmaster, Supervision, and Wonder Amusement Studio. I'm only listing them here in case someone wants to contribute the last missing publisher wheels, then this project will be even more complete than it already is. But most (if not all) of those publishers only produced 1 or 2 games. This project was a ton of work. I redrew many (probably 20+) logos. The quality is decent, even with my very average photoshop skills, because I put a lot of work into them. That, and I'm getting better. 3. Custom genre databases, from various sources I've found. They include: American Games - All games with (USA), (World), or (USA, Somothercountry) in them. European Games - All games with Europe in parentheses, that did not also have 'USA' in them. Does contain games with '(Japan, Europe).' Australian Games - The one Australian game (Daze Before Christmas) Brazilian Games - All games with 'Brazil' in parentheses. Chinese Games - All games with 'China' in parentheses. Japanese Games - All games with 'Japan' in parentheses, that did not also contain 'USA' or 'Europe.' Translations - All translated games. Prototypes - All prototypes. Homebrew - All homebrew games in the official list I was able to research and verify. Hacks - All hacks (only 2 games) that were included in the official database. Co-op games - All or most co-op games. Very accurate. Credit goes to: http://segaclassics.blogspot.com/2012/11/genesis-multiplayer-co-op-games.html Best of co-op games - The 'co-op games' database contained 106 games. The source that I used had them rated. This database contains the top 50. Multiplayer - A list of multiplayer games, data was compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' Mega Mouse - All 'Mega Mouse' games from the official list. 6 buttons - A list of games that utilize the 6 button gamepad compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' I considered adding a '3 button' database, but since it would be quite a chore to compile the accurate data necessary for such a task, I decided against it. Sega Channel - A list of 'Sega Channel' exclusives. May have some ommissions, but reasonably accurate, as it's a short list. Themes: All games with themes included (everything that I could find). Action, Adventure, Beat'em-up, etc. - Your typical genres. It should be noted that I personally found a few errors without even trying. This database needs an overhaul, but it most likely won't be from me. That about covers it. If you find any errors, no matter how small, please share them here so that I can fix them.

    UPDATE The new Nintendo Famicom Disk System set is up. In case nobody noticed, the old videos had really messed up audio where the sound would skip between speakers after a few seconds. So I not only redid all the old vids, I also did all the games to match the latest db I had made here a while back after testing the entire system library. Not sure if it was ever made official or not but you can find the set up in my Google Drive folder if needed. I'll post the db here too.

    I've collected videos from youtube to have this system ready to use when it's finally playable, which shouldn't take long. This pack contain videos (on EM FTP), 3D boxes I gathered here and there, logos, pointer and letters (same as DS) Note that I included my cropped database, which contains 62 titles with logos, videos and boxes , the full database included contains over 500 titles which don't have media for, except for logos included in the "Extra Logos".zip, this pack consists of 62 titles I wanted in my final database and I'm not thinking of adding or completing media for the remaining titles, except if a new title in the future draws my attention. You can download the videos in /Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions/_Not Approved/Aorin/Nintendo 3 Notes About the video snaps: Videos are in SD quality at best Only top screen (it makes themes look much better IMO) It's hard to find no commentary videos and without watermarks for this system They are a total of 78 videos, which only 62 made it to my list, the extra videos are still in the above mentioned folder for you to use Extract to Media\Nintendo 3DS\Images the following: Wheel Artwork3 Other Letters Extract the database to Hyperspin\Database\Nintendo 3DS Place Nintendo 3DS.ini under Settings, which is in Hyperpin's root folder There are 6 themes, 3 are main themes and the other 3 are default themes, each of main\default has 3 options which will show different buttons, for example, in the screen-shots, you see PS buttons, there are Xbox and Arcade buttons as well. Once you choose what default theme you want, for instance, the default theme with Xbox buttons, name it "default" and place it under media\Nintendo 3DS\themes Once you choose what main theme you want to use, name it Nintendo 3DS and place it in Media\Main Menu\here A quick video showing this theme Enjoy

    I was adding the Famicom system into my set, only to realize that there were no actual 3d box packs created, EVER (that I have heard of)! Since the rest of my sets have 3D boxes, I could not leave Famicom in 2D! - This set contains over 1.100 boxes! - Horizontal, vertical and square boxes; all matching the original source art - Side color matches the front cover color - System logo color depends on the side color (so we don't have black on black) - Some boxes are not from the official XML but I have created them in case those games are added in the future - The covers have great image quality (thanks to @fire10 for the source material!) Bear in mind that this is version 1.0; I will be reviewing the boxes (as a lot of them could get better coloring, borders cleaning, side colors), and will try to update them. Let me know of any suggestions or comments! Enjoy the pack Kondorito

    Nintendo 64 fans, this is for you. If you want to know exactly what this is, read my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' or 'Ultimate Sega Saturn' descriptions. This pack contains the usual. But it is quite thorough and complete. As with my last project, I consider this my best one yet. Full 2D box, 3D box, box back, and cartridge art. In case anyone is wondering what the point of the box backs is, if you have RocketLauncher's 'Pause' configured correctly, this stuff will all show up there under the 'artwork' tab, and you can zoom in on it and actually read it. See the picture below. Full publisher wheels, for every single publisher - and every single one of them is authentic for the N64 era. I did a handful of redraws, and I'm getting a lot better at that sort of thing. Also, I made it a point to use drop shadow heavily, so that the logos look awesome, and they stand out more when they overlap. It looks a lot less amateurish than some of my previous work. This has the newest official database that I just released the other day, and it has new box art (2D, 3D, and box back), cartridge art, and wheels for all the new games. Also, I went ahead and included screenshots of the games in the 'video' folder so that you have something displaying other than static when the game is selected. Emu movies is typically slow to update anything, so I figure it's better than nothing. I have about 30 ish themes from the community that I liked, and I included them. I re-did someone else's F-Zero X theme. It isn't great (I'm not a theme guy), but I wanted Samurai Goroh and Captain Falcon, two of the most recognizable characters. I also changed the background. The original background had an F-Zero logo, and then there was another F-Zero logo. Can't have that. Plays the "Car Select" theme music. Also, Killer Instinct Gold plays the KI Gold Theme. I decided to add 'year' databases this time. Why not? It's easy to add, and sometimes it's interesting to have. I put it in the farthest reaches of the genre wheel, since I consider it the least useful. But it's there if you want it. Most of the custom databases are self-explanatory. But you'll love this... in the "Nintendo 64 Expansion Pak" and "Nintendo Transfer Pak" wheels, instead of displaying year and publisher above the game, it displays relevant information, e.g. for Majora's Mask: "Required. Increases texture detail, on-screen models and effects, and removes fog." See the screenshot below. All the data is pulled directly from wikipedia, and not every game has data. But I thought that would be a nice addition to that particular custom database. Again, the whole purpose of these projects is to develop a sort of 'digital museum.' If there was a way to manipulate the databases to display even more information, I surely would. Credit goes to the community for all box arts and wheels (except for the new stuff mentioned above). All publisher wheels and custom wheels done by me. If anyone would like to use anything in this pack (or any of my other packs for that matter) for their project(s), feel free to do so. I don't want anyone thinking this is some sort of proprietary thing. This is for the community, without which, I wouldn't have 99% of the content that I have in my HyperSpin project. If you feel you can take my work and make something even better or unique, by all means, make something better or unique. If there are any mistakes, no matter how small, please message me and I will fix them. Ultimate Sega Dreamcast is still in the works, stay tuned. It needs a lot of work. Gamecube might be up next, or I might just plow through Dreamcast. We'll see.

    I made a few changes to the forums recently you probably noticed. First, some light reorganization: HyperNews was renamed to "Believe the Hype!" and within it Announcements was renamed to "HyperNews" HyperMedia was brought to the top of the page just under Believe the Hype! to increase artist exposure and project awareness HyperMedia was renamed "HyperStudio" "HyperSpin Cabinets and Projects" was moved to HyperStudio and renamed to "Cabinets and Project" The "HyperSpin" sub-forum was renamed to "HyperSupport" HyperPin -> HyperPin was renamed HyperPin -> Content and Support HyperScore Challenge was moved to HyperNews to increase awareness and exposure HyperScore Challenge was renamed to "HyperScore Tournament Central" The following ranks were changed to reflect their use as titles and to apply the same singular standard to all rank names: Administrators -> Administrator Media Approvers -> Content Authority Media Creators -> Content Creator Members -> Member The following rank was created and assigned with the same privileges and access level as Content Creator: Tournament Coordinator: Lucky1 The following badges were added to the system: Content Creator: Tournament Coordinator: Please let me know if any of the changes ruffle your feathers or if you don't care for the new Content Creator badge! Cheers!
