    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 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

    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:

    !!!PLEASE NOTE: THESE HAVE BEEN SWF SMOOTHED THEN RENAMED TO .PNG, SO THE FILES CANNOT BE OPENED TO VIEW THE IMAGES OUTSIDE OF HYPERSPIN. THIS IS NORMAL AND THEY WORK WITHIN THE FRONTEND JUST FINE!!! This is all of the /Media/Frontend/Image files resised, and HD smoothed for 16:9 displays. Screenshot above was taken in 4k and shows marked aesthetic improvement for widescreen over standard artwork. To install, simply extract the download into your :/HyperSpin/Media/Frontend/Images folder and overwrite or backup the original files. Cheers!

    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.

    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

    For those who are familiar with my "MAME 0.181 full wheels (minus casino), genre art, databases" project, you should already know what to expect. The idea is, you get everything you need as a one stop solution. Hopefully I'm saving someone else time that they could be spending actually playing the games. Included in this pack is an edited version (for typos, errors, and inconsistencies) of the official database, 132 (genre, publisher, and custom) genre databases, genre wheel art to go with it, every theme I could get my hands on, a default theme, wheel sounds, letters, the official wheel art, and complete 2D, 3D, and cartridge art. When I say 'complete,' I mean even the protos and homebrews. Every game in the official list has a 2D box, 3D box, and cart. Credit and thanks: Themes: Everyone who contributed an SNES theme. Too many people to name. I'm not sure who made the default theme included in this pack but it wasn't me. I simply tweaked it to make the videos display properly. If you know who did it, please PM me so I can give proper thanks. Box Art: (see the following thread) https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ Azzbarb @ HyperspinKoolbrez67 @ HyperspinMildanti @ HyperspinBajaResident @ HyperspinDonnie1979 @ HyperspinJuniorUnderground @ HyperspinBBB @ HyperspinWallyWonka @ HyperspinCrapahute @ ColecoBoxArt.comShenske @ TheCoverProject.netArseen @ TheCoverProject.netLumberjack42 @ TheCoverProject.netRx_79 @ TheCoverProject.netsegagamer @ TheCoverProject.netEktoPhase @ TheCoverProject.netSheep2001 @ TheCoverProject.net1980coelho @ TheCoverProject.netmel @ TheCoverProject.netPeachWaffles @ TheCoverProject.netRaven1280 @ TheCoverProject.netOther Cover Artists @ TheCoverProject.netmastershoes @ DarkUmbraJabossi @ DarkUmbraToddofWar420 @ gbatempTetsuo Shima @ gbatempsion_zaphod @ gbatempmike1 @ gbatempdrakorex @ gbatempRiCK420 @ gbatemphalen @ gbatempCypher16 @ gbatempSeam @ gbatemphalen @ gbatempWiimpathy @ gbatempPepois @ gbatempModdingBird @ gbatempKeith_Loving @ gbatempBeast @ DarkUmbraTimothy RookerNeoCverA/loopyeddie @ SouthtownOther Cover Artists @ Southtowntravistouchdown @ AtariAgeFelyx @ AtariAgeJeffrey_Bones @ AtariAge 2D box: Basically all I did here was set up a batch routine in photoshop to crop out the fronts and backs, using the art from the above link. It took me all of 5 minutes to make the best quality SNES box art I've seen. Then I used azzbarb's set to fill in some blanks. Fixed Barbie Vacation Adventure box, Super Copa box (looked kinda rough). Box Backs: All the box backs (700 out of the official 807 games) are in Artwork4 folder by default. If you have Rocketlauncher configured properly, you can read the backs of the boxes in the 'Artwork' tab in Pause. Cartridge: I used the Official HyperSpin set and filled in the blanks. Database: The official of course. This database needs some work in my opinion, particularly to double check the 'manufacturer' field. I fixed the following entries: Jim Power - The Lost Dimension in 3D (USA) database entry, manufacturer is Electro Brain (with a space), consistent with other games containing the space Ultima - Runes of Virtue II (USA), manufacturer/publisher is FCI, not Electronic Arts Victor Legend (USA), manufacturer/publisher Seika Corp. (entry did not have the period before, added for consistency) Changed all entries of 'Sun Soft' as a manufacturer to SunSoft, there should be no space, all other databases I've encountered have it as one word. Plus, there were both Sun Soft and SunSoft in the original database. Ninja Warriors, The (USA), changed manufacturer 'Taito corporation' to 'Taito Corporation.' Super Caesars Palace (USA), changed manufacturer from 'Virgion' to 'Virgin.' Added, created, or edited artwork (Box 2D, Box 3D, Cartridge) for the following games: Apocalypse II (Europe) (Proto) Arcus Odyssey (USA) (Proto) Batman - Revenge of the Joker (USA) (Proto) Classic Kong (World) (Unl) Congo - The Movie - The Secret of Zinj (USA) (Proto) Dragon Ball Z - Hyper Dimension (France) Dragon Ball Z - La Legende Saien (France) Dragon Ball Z - Super Butouden (France) Dragon Ball Z - Ultime Menace (France) MazezaM Challenge (World) (Unl) Miracle Piano Teaching System, The (USA) Mr. Bloopy - Saves the World (USA) (Proto) Network Q Rally (USA) (Proto) Nightmare Busters (Europe) (Proto) RHI Roller Hockey '95 (USA) (Proto) Skipp and Friends (World) (Unl) SpellCraft (USA) (Proto) Super Probotector - Alien Rebels (Europe) Super Shadow of the Beast (USA) (Proto) Tinhead (Europe) (Proto) Uwol - Quest For Money (World) (Unl) Wheels: The official set. I edited 'Mr. Bloopy Saves the World (USA).' It is spelled 'Bloopy,' as per the title screen, original logo had 'Bloppy.' A brief description of some of the custom genre database wheels. All Games: Takes you back to the main wheel. Serves no purpose, other than a starting point. Publishers (Activision, Acclaim, Konami, etc): I've included genre databases (and wheel art to go with them) for 72 different publishers. I didn't get them all, but I got most of the well known ones. I also tried to use a logo that was consistent for the SNES era, but there's a few I couldn't find quality scans for (Gametek and Bulletproof Software comes to mind), so I had to use what I could find. If you'd like to contribute SNES era logos to this project, or higher quality logos than what I've included, please feel free to share them. I have very amateurish photoshop skills. I attempted to do a few redraws (Koei, Sofel, FCI, Hot-B, THQ Toy Headquarters, and Ubisoft. They're acceptable but they could be better. European Games: All games from the official database with (Europe) and (France) in them. Prototypes: All games from the official database with (Proto) in them. Homebrew: All homebrew games that I am aware of from the official database. 2 Player Games: A list of most (if not all) 2 player games. Credit goes to MPQC, see this thread for more details: https://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=15458 Multiplayer: A list of most (if not all) games that use the multitap. I found a google group dedicated to this list. Credit goes to them. Not linked, because I'm not sure if they'd like to be associated with this or not. Super Scope: All Super Scope games. Super: Ever needed to find a game that begins with 'Super' in your alphabetical list, and been frustrated at the hundred thousand regular 'S' games you had to scroll through, then the additional hundred thousand 'Super Something' games you have to scroll through to get to the one you actually wanted? Well, you're not the only one. This was my solution. Themes: All games that have themes. Hacks: A list of unofficial hacks. I can't tell you how to find the file called "SNES Hacks and Translations Pack" that contains every single one of these games. I guess you're on your own. Action, Adventure, Sports, etc.: Your typical genres. Brief instructions: This should be self explanatory, if you've even found this. But a quick rundown. Copy all 139 database files included in this pack to wherever your SNES database is located. You need all of them in order to make the 'genres' function properly. The genre.xml file is already set up and ready to go. Just drag and drop. In my setup, the folder is Databases/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Copy the 'images,' 'sound,' and 'themes' folders to wherever you have these located. On my setup, it is Media/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. If you want to test the new stuff out without losing the old, just change the folder names of the old by putting a '1' in front of them (e.g. 'Images' becomes 1Images). If you're using 'details' view sorted by name, the folders you just disabled will auto-sort to the beginning of the list. If you don't like the new stuff, just delete it, and rename the old stuff back by removing the '1.' I think that about covers it. If you find any errors, please post them here. This *could* be an ongoing project. The whole idea behind this is to have the 'ultimate SNES' solution. If you have ideas on how to make it even better, and would like to contribute, be sure to share them. I have more of these up my sleeve. Particularly, my NES wheel, which puts this project to shame. But it's also a lot of work organize, put together, and upload. So, we'll see.

    [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!

    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.

    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.

    Spotlight on @Avar for being one of the hardest working people in the community, and giving recognition to all of the contributors - not to mention actually getting involved yourself. It's not 'nothing,' what you do, so in case you don't get to hear it enough, 'thank you.'

    Forum Evolution

    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!

    BIG UPDATE Forgot to update this topic. I finally finished my long winter project a week or so ago. You can now grab a brand new Sega Genesis set! There were only about 10 games I didn't have to do. The rest of the old blurry 30fps clips have been replaced. Also a bunch of redone N64 vids too. Sega Genesis - 993 vids Nintendo 64 - 102 vids

    This is the additional Transition pack for HyperSpin that used to be available to Platinum members on the old FTP. It contains 90 additional FLV transitions. Animations that can play on the main menu wheel to transition between systems. They can be used randomly or assigned to specific systems and can also be used for individual games or genres. These transitions come in 3 resolutions with a readme.file on using them. These are for Platinum members only. These were not made by me, I'm simply making them available again. All credit to the original creator. Who that is I don't know

    UPDATE Hey everyone. Haven't been around for months. Sorry, I don't really work on Hyperspin stuff anymore. Just vids for Emumovies. Speaking of which, I saw that Circo got around to uploading something great I finished a while back. So be sure to hop on FTP or Hypersync and grab them. Happy new years all.

    HyperSync

    Version 3.5.0.32

    12,428 downloads

    The time has come... And now ladies and gentlemen allow me to be the first to introduce you to HyperSync 3.5 series; you're one and only one stop shop for all the media to make your jaws drop! HyperSync 3.5 is the culmination of sixteen people working side by side, eleven months of work, a total of over 300 thousand lines of code, and a hell of a lot of beauty! You can download the consumer release now, and start using it right away! HyperSync consumer release is the first public release of HyperSync 3.5 to come out to the general public, HyperSync 3.5 will be metamorphed into version 4.0 by next months end with an expected three minor updates until that time. By using HyperSync 3.5 you understand that the application is still considered beta, albeit late beta (meaning it has undergone hundreds of hours beta testing and rewrites.) Getting Started Download the official release Extract the ZIP file anywhere on your PC (do not extract RAW files to root HyperSpin directory, do not extract this release into an existing HyperSync folder, place it in an empty folder.) Double click the application icon to launch HyperSync Once HyperSync is opened click on folders and select your HyperSpin root directory, and your media folder (typically /media) Click on the account information tile under 'home' and enter in your HyperSpin and EmuMovies forum password (click login on both instances) Now get started linking your systems. Linking Systems Click on the 'media configuration' tile located under home In just a few moments the configuration utility will load, to the left you will see a tile view of all of the systems on HyperBase Systems that you have already linked will be colored, otherwise they will be grey Click on a system tile and click 'Yes' when asked if you would like to setup that system After a moment all of the media options will be downloaded, you can preview these items by clicking preview as well Go through and setup all of your system media that you wish to synchronize Make sure SYNC SYSTEM is toggled ON, as well as SYSTEM INTROS if you wish to synchronize system intro videos Make sure that you have selected the system from the drop-down menu you want the system synced to, and click set Repeat all steps above for every system you wish to sync Click OK when finished Running a Sync Click on the sync tab, select a system, select a media type, click sync & enjoy. Words to the Wise HyperSync undergoes a 'sanity check' every time you click sync whereby it checks every database for consistency, errors as well as missing databases. If a database is found to be missing HyperSync will automatically download the appropriate database (if found on HyperList.) If a database is damaged then HyperSync will notify you that the database is damaged and give you the chance to download said database, if you choose no that system will be excluded from the synchronization. By using HyperSync it does not mean throwing caution to the wind, or not reading the instructions clearly. If you misuse HyperSync as with any media synchronization utility there is a chance for data corruption. So, please take your time, be patient and level-headed. Notable Features Automatic updating Automatic error submission Automatic database updating Fully integrated into HyperList, EmuMovies and HyperBase Super fast post syncs (no more waiting for hours.) Version History 6/25/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.19 Released I went ahead and pulled some major updates to the application today. I had been using Log4Net as the logging system, but after getting frustrated with it's clunky API and way out of date methods and routines I purchased a new logging system (source code and all; which I then modified for use with HyperSync) that I think is better (relative term there) than Log4Net. So without further delay here are some of the changes in this version: New more in depth logging system Added several hundred error traps Cleaned some of the redundant code out of the system Fixed the InternetCheck() routine Modified a good chunk out of the database updating utility 6/25/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.20 Released This update is a service release and has a few new methods for error handling built in. Below you will find release information specific to this build: Errors are automatically submitted to the developers Users are given a ticket number in their DEBUG.LOG file which they can post here on the forums 6/26/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.21 Released This is a service pack update, fixed a few issues on the error tracking side of things; rewrote a large portion of the error submission service. This should allow me to help diagnose user related issues 6/26/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.22 Released This release traps the startup object and creates an DEBUG.LOG file for you to upload when asking for assistance. 6/26/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.23 Released This release is a service release, it is not mandatory but it is highly suggested however. This update will trap all DownloadFile() methods just in case either HyperBase or EmuMovies.com replies with a null value or a File Not Found response. This should dramatically cut down on the number of stopped synchronizations by the application. 6/27/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.24 Released This release updates the way that HyperSync communicates with EmuMovies.com in a few minor ways such as follows: No longer pools data sent via the EmuMovies.com API The 'official' EmuMovies.com API was rewritten (locally) to enhance communication and extend usability Will no longer report each failed assignment call as an error; these calls are now cached and tried at a later time Beginning methods to allow users to choose the media type they wish to synchronize Added a cache mode and single instance mode (single instance meaning each file is checked one by one) Implemented a global single instance API variable that will assure there are no 'random' logins to EmuMovies.com Enhanced the media preview window for EmuMovies.com 6/28/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.26 Released This updates adds one more error checking method whenever a user enables alternate video paths in their folders options. The system now scans for the INI file of the particular system, if it cannot find a suitable INI file then it will not update the videos for that system (so let's make sure we have all of the proper HyperHQ options filled out.) Also, this release contains minor GUI updates to the excluded systems tab on the media configuration utility as well as the folders tab on the main application interface. 7/31/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.29 Released This updates includes a host of changes to the core application. I have read over the forums and seen where users were experiencing problems with the application and have tried to fix a few things that may have been preventing new users from using the application correctly. Default.zip - This was an oversight on my behalf as somehow the drop down menu for system themes was hidden in the previous release, I modified the download core a little so that it is in compliance for the new Cloud project that we are working on over here. 8/2/2013 HyperSync 3.5.0.30 Released Added a bootstrapper to HyperSync, you will now have to run HyperSync Loader.exe instead of running HyperSync Cloud.exe. This bootstrapper ensures that all of the prerequisites are installed properly and are running effeciently prior to launching the main application. 11/2/2016 HyperSync 3.5.0.31 Released -Added compatibility with new forum software IPB 4 (All previous versions will not work any more) -You no longer have password restrictions, use any password you would like Please Note: If you have not already, consider joining EmuMovies.com to enhance your overall experience with not only HyperSync but HyperSpin as a whole. EmuMovies.com brings a host of media files to HyperSpin that you can not imagine, and with the given fact that HyperSync will support HyperLaunch media types in the near future (via extensible modules) it is more important now than ever to make sure we are getting you the media you want, how you want it. EmuMovies.com is highly affordable and their lifetime service simply cannot be beat; and remember HyperSpin Platinum members save 25% off right at the check out, so visit over there today and sign up; because HyperSync is pulling and relying on media from EmuMovies.com more everyday, and we don't want to leave anybody out of the fun!
