  1. Do you like HYPERSPIN??????

    Launchbox doesn't have any of that. That is why I come here. It also doesn't use databases so if you want complete rom sets you need a hyperspin ready set. They have their own database to fill in the info but it's very incomplete. Mind you that launchbox only really took off about 1 year ago. Hyperspin has been around since before 2009. Their art department is really lacking but I'm sure it will come around with time.
  2. Do you like HYPERSPIN??????

    Sure, but it all has to be resized, so you still need a backup of the original for backup purposes. It's a pain. Anyway, I enjoyed Hyperspin for the 3 or 4 years I had it but have moved on to Lunchbox/BigBox. Integrates easily with RocketLauncher as well so setup time was minimal compared to Hyperspin. Couldn't be happier.
  3. Do you like HYPERSPIN??????

    In Bigbox you can adjust the speed of the wheel. The default is a bit slow so it looks like it's not as responsive. As for running it on older systems, then yes, Hyperspin is better but it's 2017. Any 5 year old computer should be able to run BigBox without issues or slowdowns. Anyway...Hyperspin was the best back in the day and it's still a good choice for a cab with a 4:3 screen. However, for those of us running it on a PC or a living room with a Widescreen TV, there are better choices out there, like Launchbox/BigBox. It's really a shame that BBB didn't continue development of Hyperspin or at the very least add Widescreen support.

    No. No need anymore. I just use the Rocketlauncher CRT overlay with it.

    Sure. I'll see how big it is and upload it somewhere but I don't have a database for it because I use Launchbox these days.

    I did get the roms, wheels and 3D covers renamed but I did it all manually. What a pain. I gave them their proper names, not the WHDload names and removed the version numbers as well. I don't have plans to ever update this set again. Still need to rename all the 2D covers.
  8. .7z or .zip

    Use RAR5. Better compression and much faster decompression than 7z. There were several discussion here in these forum about a year ago and speed and compression tests done and RAR5 was the clear winner. I converted most of my roms to it. Mame is still in the default zip format I think.
  9. I've lost my Hyperspin :(

    Did you download hyperspin from this site or did you buy a drive?
  10. I've lost my Hyperspin :(

    I think I found your files on my Hard Drive. Let me know your address so I can return them to you. I will need some money upfront for packaging and shipping costs. You're in the UK so it will be a bit expensive. Hyperspin.exe and HyperHQ.exe correct? Yeap, I'm pretty sure this is them right here.
  11. Commodore Amiga

    I got the WHDload set from PD. It's from January 2016. I'm more worried about the artwork. I got the roms almost all renamed but I have over 2000 wheels, videos, 2D covers, 3D covers and disks. 980 games in each of those need renaming.
  12. Commodore Amiga

    I know. I tried using Don's Rom Renamer but for some strange reason, it does not rename them.
  13. Commodore Amiga

    It doesn't sync. I tried that. It syncs the ones that match the db, the problem is a lot of them now have different file names so they are not syncing.
