  1. hyperlist systems problems

    I don't know why a list be blank, but for the other questions it's because everything user generated so... If there a list or content for a system that doesn't work, it's because someone liked the system and/or made it in preparation for when it was emulated. And if x box not there it will be because no one has made yet, probably due to the poor emulation status atm. Most of the mainstream emulated systems should be there
  2. wheel purpose

    Versatility? Ease of setup? It is relatively easy to setup a wheel with one emulator, so rather than having a system wheel, some people would prefer to have a wheel for an emulator. That way, they put their games in the wheel that runs it best, rather than the wheel for the system it is from. Of course, with the "alternative emulator" option you could just throw them all in same wheel, but this takes a bit more time to do so You can understand someone wanting to skip Also, some people like the theming of particular emulators, so prefer to build their setup that way. Guess a shorter answer could have been "why not?". Is what makes this hobby interesting; you can set things up however u want 😃
  3. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    Hi abear, You need to add a new system in hyperhq with the same name as your xml (i used "Arcade"). Then youd place your new xml in its database folder. When merging with Don's it add an exe tag to each game - corresponding to the original xml the game came from. This allows Rocketlauncher to know how to run each game - in your example it would let it know what needed Daphne and what needed mame - so its vital you keep all original systems setup in RL in background (just make invisible in hyperspin if you only want to browse the combined wheel). Finally, with games i just dumped them all in one folder called arcade and pointed the system to that folder in RL. But, if you want to keep games seperate then you could just point to both game folders in RL. Finally, youll need to combine all ur media (wheels, videos etc) in the folders for the new system you created at the start

    Not yet. I got as far as adding sega model 2, model 3, triforce and Atomiswave to mame. Still need to add a few more systems. Is actually really easy to do by using dons list merger in same way as post above
  5. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    If you use Don's list merger you can make the list you need. Just merge your mame list with your daphne list. The tool automatically adds the exe tag to every entry - it will tag it with title of the list the game came from. Great thing is RocketLauncher reads this tag and uses it to know what settings to use. So assuming you got both systems setup - games tagged mame will launch with your mame settings, and games tagged daphne will launch with your daphne settings
  6. Confused about where to put media

    Wheels, themes, videos, box art and cart art go in the HyperSpin folders. Bezels and Fade go in RocketLauncher folders, as they are not to do with the front end, but to do with the launcher. Basically, everything before you click on a game is the Frontend (HyperSpin). Once you click on a game everything is controlled by the Launcher (RocketLauncher in your case)

    Making a database that has all arcade games on the same wheel.

    Jon, that EXE tag works a treat. I thought it was a legacy thing for HyperLaunch and wouldn't work with RocketLauncher - but it does. This makes things much easier Just add one new wheel and it will draw all the settings from your existing system setups - pretty cool.

    Thanks John. I had a similar issue with Sega Model 2 - in that the emulator needed some older rom names for a few games.
  10. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    Version 0.2 with Sega Model 3 added - post 2 updated. For the nonmame games systems I have been matching Mame Style - renaming to latest mame set where necessary, adding genres etc and putting all clone information - figured is best to keep clones because HyperSpin can filter out if needed. I've kept my source files for specific systems so if anyone wants updated databases for anyof them just say. For now, I have kept non working games in the non mame systems, as that is the way system databases are normally done around here. Although, MAME database has non working removed so not sure if I should remove them from non mame systems or not?
  11. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    Ninja, I haven't used HyperXMLspin, but I am sure for people that wanted a combined wheel AND separate system wheels it would work. But I ONLY want the combined wheel, so it wouldn't work for me as I don't have the separate wheels to search from.
  12. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    Ok, made my first version - only has one extra emulator added to MAME (sega model 2) but that is because I am being a bit meticulous with my DB creation and testing so it takes a bit of time. Anyways, if anyone wants to try it out I edited the second post with the files and instructions. This is definitely the way I want my Arcade wheel to look, so I will add other systems and update post 2 as I go. Thanks
  13. One Arcade Wheel (to rule them all)

    Sweet, thanks guys. So, looks like I had the emulators ok, with the exception of AAE - I'm gonna go check that out now. I appreciate the comments, keep em coming if more to add
