  1. Version 20130823


    Here's a simple rework of SophT's Famicom Disk System theme to suit the Nintendo Famicom, a system with barely any themes or artwork right now. This is the Main Menu theme.
  2. Version 20130805


    I made this theme a while ago, but never bothered to upload it for some reason. The background is shamelessly stolen from the MAME theme for 19XX: The War Against Destiny theme. This is the Main Menu theme.

    Sony Playstation 2 - Main Menu (4:3)

    Rework of Cougar888's NEC PC Engine theme to suit the NEC PC Engine-CD. This is the Main Menu theme.

  8. share your main menu xml list

    You've pretty much got the lot. Although I don't have as many niche systems, here's a few in mine that I didn't see in your list: Apple II: Essential! (although I don't think I've been bothered to set it up). Future Pinball: I was really into FP a while ago, but have been slack on the recent releases (sorry to all!). MS-DOS: Takes a bit of effort to get up and running, but it is worth it if you have the time to make your own XML - something that you really have to do yourself since there are thousands of games available. I have about 150 titles. ScummVM: Pretty much like DOSBox for point-and-click games that use LucasArt's SCUMM engine. Not at all necessary in my opinion. Most mouse-based games would be a pain in the ass to use in a cabinet unless you had a trackball or something. Visual Pinball: I much prefer FP, but I do have this working. Zinc: I have no clue what this is... apparently it emulates "ZN1, ZN2 and System 11 arcade hardware". Sounds neat but I doubt it'll run G-Darius with the original music *cryingface* If you want to keep going I'd highly recommend having a look at "The Old Computer". Not to blatantly advertise ROM sites or anything, but the list of systems they have software for is just plain stupid.
  9. hard disk failure,everithing lost.

    I'll bet $10 it was a Toshiba drive. Literally 90% of the time I've had to to replace a HDD, it's been a failed Toshiba. Also THK is right - you must do backups! They will make your life ten times easier when a drive inevitably fails. There are many different automatic backup solutions. I use Cygwin + rsync to another machine. If you don't want anything fancy you can always just do a copy-paste every once in a while. Do a Google! Sorry to say but short of HyperSync, there isn't an easy one-click solution to your problem. If you need any specific files, I would be glad to contribute (just don't ask me to upload any PS1 games lol).

  12. Future Pinball Question

    I'm guessing HS gives an XML error when you launch the wheel? Best thing to do when making new XML's is to take an existing one and edit your info into that, and in doing so avoiding errors. Here's a few possibilities: - First thing I see is that you haven't included <?xml version="1.0"?> at the very top of the document. - <game name="Van Halen"> doesn't have a closing </game>. If that doesn't work, here are few extraneous possibilities: - It's best to have the entries in alphabetical order. - You may need to add <enabled>Yes</enabled> to each entry. - Not sure <type> is a valid tag. I might be wrong, try changing it to <genre> and </genre> - You may need to add index="false" image="" after each <game name="GameName" - This is the alphabetical index that shows up when you hold the right arrow key in a HyperSpin wheel, and have "Use XML indexes" enabled in HyperHQ. Index is either true of false, image is a letter a through z. Can't be bothered? Here, try this: <?xml version="1.0"?> <menu> <game name="Abra Ca Dabra ULTRA" index="true" image="a"> <description>Abra Ca Dabra ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>Gottlieb</manufacturer> <year>1975</year> <genre>EM</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Close Encounters Of The Third Kind" index="true" image="c"> <description>Close Encounters Of The Third Kind</description> <manufacturer>Gottlieb</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Gorgar HELLFIRE Edition" index="true" image="g"> <description>Gorgar HELLFIRE Edition</description> <manufacturer>Williams</manufacturer> <year>1979</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Harlem Globetrotters On Tour" index="true" image="h"> <description>Harlem Globetrotters On Tour</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Iron Maiden" index="true" image="i"> <description>Iron Maiden</description> <manufacturer>Stern</manufacturer> <year>1981</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Kiss ULTRA Edition" index="true" image="k"> <description>Kiss ULTRA Edition</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Old Chicago ULTRA" index="true" image="o"> <description>Old Chicago ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1975</year> <genre>EM</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Playboy" index="true" image="p"> <description>Playboy</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Space Mission ULTRA" index="true" image="s"> <description>Space Mission ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>Willliams</manufacturer> <year>1976</year> <genre>EM</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Spirit of 76 ULTRA" index="false" image=""> <description>Spirit of 76 ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>Gottlieb</manufacturer> <year>1975</year> <genre>EM</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Star Trek ULTRA" index="false" image=""> <description>Star Trek ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Star Wars Empire Edition" index="false" image=""> <description>Star Wars Empire Edition</description> <manufacturer>SLAMT1LT</manufacturer> <year>2012</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Star Wars ULTRA" index="false" image=""> <description>Star Wars ULTRA</description> <manufacturer>SLAMT1LT</manufacturer> <year>2010</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Superman Man of Steel Edition" index="false" image=""> <description>Superman Man of Steel Edition</description> <manufacturer>SLAMT1LT</manufacturer> <year>2011</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="The Amazing Spiderman" index="true" image="t"> <description>The Amazing Spiderman</description> <manufacturer>Gottlieb</manufacturer> <year>1980</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="The Six Million Dollar Man" index="" image=""> <description>The Six Million Dollar Man</description> <manufacturer>Bally</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="Van Halen" index="true" image="v"> <description>Van Halen</description> <manufacturer>mark1</manufacturer> <year>2011</year> <genre>SS</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> </menu> And if you plan on adding a ton more, try my XML! EDIT: Fixed all your years, manufacturers and genres.
  13. Future Pinball Question

    Does your rom-path to the folder of tables? Does the game folder and .fpt name of the game you're trying to launch match the "game name" in your XML? There's only so much I can help you with here...
  14. Future Pinball Question

    Open up /HyperSpin/Databases/Future Pinball/Future Pinball.xml with your preferred text editor and paste in the second section anywhere between <menu> at the top and </menu> at the bottom. If you have other entries, find the position where your game will sit alphabetically. If you don't have a Future Pinball.xml, you can simply create a blank text document and save it as a .xml: Your XML should begin with <?xml version="1.0"?> <menu> Contain any number of: <game name="Playboy" index="false" image=""> <description>Playboy</description> <manufacturer>Bally Midway</manufacturer> <year>1978</year> <genre>Recreation</genre> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> And end with: </menu> XML editing is dead simple, and is something you'll have to get used to if you want to get anywhere in HyperSpin.
  15. Future Pinball Question

    Wait, you're running this in HyperSpin? Please post in the HyperSpin Support forum next time =P As I was saying earlier, you need to ensure that your rom-path points to "\Future Pinball\" the parent directory of your tables, and that you have an entry for "Playboy" in your XML.
