  1. MAME Software List Renaming Project

    That screenshot is definitely the HS ftp. His stuff is on the EM ftp right where he said it is.
  2. Yup, can confirm same thing here.
  3. Unless I'm just being dumb (always a possibility), the files haven't been updated on the ftp. The folder is marked as 1.0 containing 44 vids from 4 years ago.
  4. You have to be a Platinum member to use Sync.
  5. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    I should have specified, a good solution (unless a ton of good artists appear or free up a ton of time lol).
  6. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    There used to be a 5 star rating system in place and comments have always been enabled I believe. Neither are really useful though. Not many people use the star ratings or commented other than "thanks" or some other generic comment. Comments can sometimes be useful for pointing out mistakes but star ratings are pretty much useless because in the end it's random users rating them, not people with the skills to assess the quality. Not to mention lots of people are happy to just have something regardless of quality so they mark it positively. You could probably go into the downloads section and find a bunch of badly cut wheels with thanks comments or likes or whatever. Regarding dev communication, just give up that dream now because it will not happen. There's been no communication in the past 5 years from devs and it won't change. Mods and other veteran community members don't have any knowledge either. They want to keep things secret so they have to deal with the consequences of that choice. Thankfully, I realized 3 or so years ago that what little they did say was empty promises so I switched frontends and as many know LaunchBox has caused a pretty large exodus of HS members as well as other frontends.
  7. [WIP] Download Section Clean Up

    This is how things used to be done in the various subforums. People would post theme mockups, wheels, etc. and approvers/creators would provide feedback on how to improve things and it would be uploaded only after that. The good art projects still adhere to that format and it's no accident that those guys are the OGs and talented newcomers with the end packages speaking for themselves. Then the decision was made to open the floodgates and let ppl upload whatever they want (which several media approvers I know objected to, rightfully so) which is where we are now. I know several approvers have no interest in sorting through the hundreds/thousands of submissions for that reason. The art skill of the approvers is directly correlated to the quality of the resulting audit. If you have people that aren't great artists doing the approvals, you're not going to have great results and probably not much different from the situation it's in now. The only problem is there are so few artists of that caliber and most are busy with producing hq stuff or on break from doing so. I can't even say there are many newly promoted content creators that I think could uphold standards as browsing submissions by some after that mass promotion the quality of some just isn't there. I think the root cause is a pattern of putting trying to make everyone feel special (disregarding upload process, mass promotion, terrible organization of Plat section per user) above quality and ease of use. So, I'm not sure there is a solution to the problem.
  8. Demul not going to Fullscreen in Hyperspin

    They definitely are still developing it. His comment was probably because they didn't respond to or fix his specific issue(s). I haven't seen djvj on RL in quite a while and I'm pretty sure bleasby is traveling for work or something so he's limited in what he can test and fix but he does still try to help on most stuff from what I've seen, especially pause and fade related issues since I'm pretty sure that's his code for the most part. Of course much like support here it's pretty reliant on the community to help out and issues with RL other than settings issues often require people with some AHK and/or coding knowledge to be of help to diagnose or fix stuff which narrows the potential helpers even further. I try to help fix modules, add new stuff to modules when people request it, and do general support questions when I can over there to help out. I can't shed any light on this particular issue since it launches fine for me although I don't use HS. I know HS can be a pain in the ass when it comes to stealing focus and whatnot and the fact that some griffin has it working ok while badboo and goofers don't means it's probably going to be some random thing that some people experience and not others. If there's not already a thread over at RL for this you should definitely start one there and the more people who post troubleshooting logs the better in case it is some combo of settings or something that's causing it.
  9. That doesn't change my opinion at all, if something like this were implemented you would probably get the opposite result: more piracy.
  10. This is my personal opinion, not an official one since I don't deal w/ anything related to dev (so ignore the staff badge under my name), but this is a terrible idea. What equates to ransomware and having it permadelete things on a users PC? No.
  11. Problem Hyperspin + RocketL + MAME ROM Set merged

    You can play the different versions with the merged set, you just need to follow the module notes for MAME in RLUI. Specifically, setting the Skip Checks option to "Rom Only" on the Settings -> Main Settings tab in RLUI. The clones will still be red in the audit and listed as not found due to the way the audit works but the games will launch without any issues. The games not showing up on the wheel in HS is most likely because you have the roms only filter enabled in HyperHQ for that system which you can't use with a merged rom set. Also make sure you don't have the "Parents Only" filter enabled and that your xml has entries for the clones.
  12. Roms?

    Linking to, requesting, or discussing where to get roms is against the site rules. Topic locked.
  13. Is there any alternative HS transition animations?

    I'm pretty sure the "Not Authorized" message means it's a broken link but I can't do anything about it so you would have to message an admin. I wasn't a fan of the whole Plat section recruitment either and I absolutely hate when the site is updated. Every time they update it they break a ton of stuff that never gets fixed. There was a bunch of things they broke during the last site update that are still broken and they broke more during this one. Honestly, I find myself wanting to browse the site less and less with each update.
  14. Like I said above, you won't get a response so there's no point in asking.
