  1. Need help

    Then download the dll and put it places.
  2. HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    Thanks for the run down. Well perhaps they can look to add more xml display options in the future release like the Description, Year and Developer currently. Score, Synopsis, Players etc would be great.
  3. HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    Great to see you back @dark13. Would love to know how that synopsis artwork file works.. It the last piece of my HS Puzzle and I am sure many others.
  4. HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    Well to be honest I haven't paid for Hyperspin... I was blessed to be able to access things simply by giving back. I find it still to be an amazing piece of software with so many possibilities still to be unlocked. I am in no rush to move on, as it works. It works fast, and I can customize to the way I want not just have something the same as everyone else. Sure there are a heap of features it could have to bring it forward for more simple platforms and walks of life. But its not targeted at people without at least some cognitive capacity and willingness to learn.
  5. Game not showing in Hyperspin wheel

    Roms only is a filter that needs a path and extension defined in the settings file for your wheels. If you find Mame.ini in your Hyperspin/settings folder. You can add a Roms Path and then extensions of your games separated by a ,
  6. Blade (Pinball FX2) Widescreen 16x9

    I made a similar mistake on some of my first widescreen themes. If the video preview is native widescreen. You will need to set the video element in Hypertheme to "Force Both Aspects" and set them to Width = 480 and Height = 360. It should then stretch back to be the right size.
  7. playing on the tv

    1. Plug computer into TV. 2. Load Hyperspin. 3. Profit
  8. shortcut?

    Google should have everything you are looking for.
  9. Show/Scrape Game Info/Synopsis

    I just watched his video more closely and it seems you still need to configure a file for each game as its using the file_name as a value and then pulling the data from an xml file. Oh well.
  10. Show/Scrape Game Info/Synopsis

    Yes there is... It just needs someone to unlock it and share the method. @dark13 has done it via embedded swf/fla files sourcing from external files, just need to get the method.
  11. HyperSpin menu navigation using steering wheel

    You would have to map it perhaps to keyboard strokes via a joy2key or xpadder I think still. Hopping that better native joystick support, configuration will be in 2.0.
  12. Video is possible, but I am yet to find a way for Image Layers and Themes, not sure if there is one.
  13. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    I think it needs more people to be honest. Its not a job that's achievable really alone I don't think, unless its a full time job which is not fair to you @thatman84 I am always offering my services if you want where we can target specific areas and really get a hold on it. I would be nice to one day have the website and sync tools working in parallel.
  14. If you have Windows go to Display settings/properties. Inside there you should be able to set your backscreen as the "Primary" Monitor. Then when you next load Hyperspin it should hopefully select that screen.
  15. Not too sure on options to change screen #. You may have to set Windows to have the primary screen set to which ever you want Hyperspin to be on. (Backscreen) Then change the configs of your emulators/Pinball set to the main screen.
  16. Boot straight into game

    You boot the game via Rocketlauncher you say. Would not one think that when exiting the game it might also have something do with your launcher and not front end. Maybe if there was a UI.exe for your launcher to investigate the settings for your Mame. Even then setting an option of sorts of what to do when exiting a game, in regards to Hyperspin as your Default and Active Front End. And if Sarcasm is lost. Picture! As for Launching MAME and then having it skip any boot messages and/or wait until loaded to show visuals.. that's another story, and a whole lot more pictures.
  17. Changing Themes

    Main Menu can use a default theme. Each system can also use a default theme. HS on a whole can use a default theme or a universal theme if you will, but there needs to be a copy for the Main Menu and then each system separately. You might find you have to adjust the theme.xml to accommodate for your new video dimensions. Or make a new theme from scratch via the HyperTheme program.
  18. Show boxart above default themes in Hyperspin

    As an example I am using the Default Theme for Atari 2600 Author unknown in one of my setups. You can see in the image below showing the Default.zip contents as well as the Theme.xml file layout. The theme itself only contains Artwork1 and 2 as well as a background image which will be used for every item but the theme is also using a specific artwork 3 and 4 for each item as media layers. I.e Cases and Cartridges. If you navigate to the Hyperspin/Media/Atari 2600/Images folder you can see there are areas to put Artworks 3 and 4 for each item, which the theme will use if there is no default in the zip file for the theme itself. Inside Artwork 3 we have the boxart. And Inside Artwork 4 we have the 2D cartridge files. As they will show on top of Layer 3. I hope that makes sense.
  19. Show boxart above default themes in Hyperspin

    It depends what layers are left with the theme you are using. Most system default themes are built to include Boxart and CD/Cartridge artworks. Commonly layers 3 & 4, but this is always down to the designer of the theme. I would say .. yes.
  20. Black screen after leaving PC Games

    Seems like more of a rocket-launcher question. Sounds like its not closing like it should be at end of operation. Maybe set an exit emulator keystroke that isnt esc. Something like double tap the Home or Insert Key.

    Omniscience mode engaged.
  22. Making a HyperSpin cabinet

    It might save you time in downloading, but most of those drives don't work out of the box and you might find yourself trying to diagnose issues that you cannot comprehend and will not get assistance with from many people here. Also are you going to actually play the 100,000's of games available? I have 40,000+ that fit onto a 3TB Hard Drive with Hyperspin and Media just fine.. You might find it easier just starting with a single system like MAME which should over roughly 4000 arcade games. Then work through consoles etc. Add some PC Games if you have a system like that etc. I find if there is a PC Version it usually runs better on a PC than any emulated version.
  23. Make only games you have visible

    Yes.. Yes there is.
  24. ScummVM-zinger19(20090908)

    Its a weird SWF file.. seems to work fine in HS but only shows a portion of its contents when viewed in a media player. I think the layer is a SWF just so the flame above LeChuck's hat is animated. In my Main HS Drive I have modified the size of the video preview as I found it to be a bit too large for my tastes. Overall it works as intended.
  25. Even a 64bit OS should run 32bit apps. Might pay to re-install and also make sure you exempt the install location in your Anti-virus. Could try running it in compatibility mode, Windows 7 should be fine.
