  1. Special artwork design and Position

    Oh how I wish I could figure out that time/date stamp and how to add it to swf files. Every version I find that has this I cant seem to open to see how it ticks. Edit: And then I read bubs post above, gonna give that swf decompiler a go.
  2. SPEEDrive Project (JammaRacerCab)

    Very Nice Results!! Well done.
  3. MAME Disappeared From HyperSpin Wheel

    That would be in Media/Main Menu/Images/Wheels.. Should be called MAME.png if all is default.
  4. MAME Disappeared From HyperSpin Wheel

    Check your Main Menu.xml Database file preferably in Notepad++ Make sure that the formatting is all ok and that... <game name="MAME"/> is still there... Sometimes when using packs you can clear/override your database files. Always be sure to take a backup (They aren't usually that big.) Hope that helps any.
  5. How Do I get that Kool Loading Game screen and Voice?

    There are Fades you can use/download or create your own.
  6. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    I am working on it.. haha. http://hyperspin-fe.com/profile/134558-bungles/?do=content&type=downloads_file&change_section=1 My Process is pretty quick (5-10min per theme) and only longer if there is no great source png material and I have to chop non-transparent items... I am trying not to rush through to keep content nice and suiting to each theme, not just items that are sorta relevant kinda and just mashing it in and not converting to smoothed swf. I have a lot of games still to do for my setup but its a working progress. But might setup a Todo-List for the top 200-300PC Games or so soon. I know others are dropping some great widescreen content also so trying to to duplicate where possible forever checking for existing themes that I like. P.S Also find out for me out to get the clock into special art swf files like the version you posted. I wants it!!
  7. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    Sad Faces.. I have tried other front ends but it feels like starting again in a new world and I don't do defeat very well. I might as well just look at the current version as a "Final" and work from there improving my version where I can and contribute back what I can also. As you said "Its been done before" but we can hope.
  8. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    (Best Russian Accent) I think you are right on the money there 47. Going through some of the themes I have downloaded you can see there has been a phenomenal amount of effort, care and hard work put into them. Personally I am content with what I have produced and tried to contribute over my short time learning but I think its not even close to some of the designs put forth before me. I would hope however with patience and practice my content will improve overtime as its all a new learning experience for me as I work in Support. Perhaps its something @thatman84 can look to achieve with the clean up eventually is to create a section for public submissions (Non Content Creator) but as you said, the content grows probably faster than it can be sorted and graded. Also adding/looking into a Rating Star/Cherry/Whatever System over just a public like system might be viable? Also a plead to people to start looking into widescreen and future proofing themes/content if that's the direction the product itself is heading. Unsure what direction the new HS version is heading might also be part of the problem. I personally would like some sort of re-assurance that current or future works will not become redundant in the future versions. If the Development team could start looking into release notes even in a section to Staff only with a simple NDA if needed. Personally I think secrecy will only hinder this amazing FE from reaching its Top Place on the Market again as input from the people using the product usually gets the people what they want where possible.
  9. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    How many media Approves are not active anymore? Surely the dev/admin team can check their last hit on the forum. Also perhaps there could be a like button approves can put on new content submitted to show that its approved? Or comment perhaps on un-approved submissions with critic on where/how to get it to official standards? I would love to know personally if my submissions are upto par? Else where I should be looking to improve. Granted I don't spend much time on each theme/item (5-10min usually) as I am focusing on PC Games which tend to have a lot of available media. (Which is nice as I am not the best artist by hand) Personally I think what Hyperspin needs is to get its Audit/Download tool polished and going strong, its FTP repository linked somehow to the website so they are one or a clone of each other ... or start looking more into Download Packs for Systems that are complete or close to complete as possible. The bulk of people want an out of the box experience these days with little setup time. A perfect system would be one you install and using the current databases scans designated Drive(s)/Folder(s) for *Ahem* items and then allows you to download chosen media content. Similar to what *ahem* Launchbox is doing but less.. cold and more forgiving in miss-matched item names using CRC and Fuzzy Logic to correct where it can. Even scanning for current media and skipping where up to date/available. Databases could have matching Item to Theme CRC connections if possible or use a fuzzy list to determine that you have the correct/upto-date media. All that being said I was frustrated at first setting up Hyperspin (Thank god for Simply Austins Packs/Guides) however... After a time it became almost a game in itself to get it setup perfect for me. Also as I miss Avar but also want to see this FE Succeed as out of all it is still my Favorite I am willing to throw my hat in the ring to assist in auditing and getting things complete and ready for the new version. I am fairly new on the scene but let me know if you want some help as you will find I am stupidly efficient at times.
  10. Change game info font?

    Not sure if there would be a way to script the swap of information. Maybe if you could tabulate it in excel or import it to SQL. But perhaps too much work for too little return.
  11. Change game info font?

    I think the field location is set in stone. However you could just put the manufacturer in the years location and put the year/date in the manufacture location in the Database. Not to sure if there is a way to add a break like /n etc.
  12. How to disable Main menu pointer?

    Be careful with that one. Learn't the hard way that some files don't want to be "Missing".. So i just replace them with small empty files as a placeholders.
  13. I still need to type up my story, but just dropping another track here... don't mind me. For those of you who don't know of Devin.. your life is about to change. I have been listening to him for so many years and every song of his from ALL of his band's/projects I love. Enjoy.
  14. HyperUpdate HyperSpin News

    Very nice work KlopjerO. I do think the most time consuming part however would be the cross post to Facebook as Avar would download and insert images of a lot of the media releases. I think it was more about getting the information to those that don't stalk the website on an hourly basis.. hehe. However it could all be done on the forums I would think and cross posted/shared to Facebook if anyone has posting rights of the page/group.
  15. HyperUpdate HyperSpin News

    I am sure one of the other staff members can cross post it yeah? As valuable as @Avar is and missed at the moment the engine cant just stop dead guys after its been trying to generate momentum again. If you need help also (Directed at those behind the scenes who work very hard) let us the community know and we can help where possible. From little things big things grow, especially with the crowd Hyperspin has. Love this community, the sharing and content it has generated. It truly is the best front end/history of gaming in my opinion.
