  12. [OFFICIAL] Microsoft MSX2+ XML Database View File I've corrected the 'manufacturer' meta data to reflect the developer/publisher accurately. I've also added the following games: Dragon Slayer V - Sorcerian (Japan) (Translated En) Nyancle Racing (Japan) (Translated En) Xak - The Art of Visual Stage (Japan) (Translated En) Xak II - Rising of the Redmoon (Japan) (Translated En) Ys III - Wanderers from Ys (Japan) (Translated En) Also please note there is a game in the database called Ys III - Wanderers from Ys (Japan) (Translated En) (Disk 1) (Alt for Tiger Quarry crash). You will need the Japanese version of the disk for only the Tiger Quarry area, otherwise, the game will crash when you enter. This game isn't actually worth playing if you ask me, as the SNES version and TG16 versions are far superior, but it exists, so it's in the database. Changed hyphens to colons in the descriptions. Final notes - I realized I didn't follow the existing name scheme of "Disk 1 of 4" and just opted to use "Disk 1" on my new additions. I've already got everything set up on my end, and I am uploading my work as a courtesy - but if this bugs you, by all means, drop by the development thread, and upload a corrected database.

  13. [OFFICIAL] Nintendo Wii XML Database View File So I was looking for a Wii development database thread in the forum. There wasn't one, but I found this from 6 months ago instead: "That Wii DB is a mess. Someone did a CTRL+H to replace all instances of the word "Racing" with "Driving" While all they had to do was change "<genre>Racing" with "<genre>Driving" Then circo took that faulty xml and made it "official" =___=!" I have zero plans to do anything special with this database. All I've done is correct the instances of 'driving' in the descriptions/game names, and replaced hyphens with colons in the description. I've made a development thread - if you want to contribute to this database, please do. I am not the keeper of these databases, I'm just a contributor. http://hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/34045-official-nintendo-wii-xml-database-thread/ Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 09/26/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits  
  14. [Official] Nintendo GameCube XML Database 9-21-2017 1.0 View File I did some work on this database a while go, and I had big plans - I was going to have a 'players' field, a 'developer' field, and all kinds of other stuff. But I've scrapped that, because HyperSpin in it's current state can't even utilize any of these fields. Instead, I've opted to create custom XMLs. At the moment, I have a 'Two Players' and 'Multiplayer' XML finished - and they are quite accurate, as I compiled the data directly from the backs of the boxes, that clearlly state how many players the game has. Please note that this is for *english games only*. I found the Japanese games too frustrating to navigate menus, and I don't like compiling data from 3rd party sources, so that's that. Otherwise, the manufacturer field now accurately reflects the name of the publisher. It makes no sense to have the name of some obscure, uncredited developer as the name in the description, when we have nice box arts that clearly tell you who published the game. The publisher should be the standard for all console/handheld systems, at least in this version of HyperSpin. An alternative of course is to put both - developer/publisher - and that's always an option. But at the least, the publisher should always be there. Prior to my work, this database was very flawed in respect to the manufacturer field. Sometimes the developer was used, sometimes the publisher was used, sometimes the data was completely wrong. Special thanks goes to JSinn for having a complete set of box backs for me to use to compile the data for the two player and multiplayer XMLs.

  15. [OFFICIAL ] Nintendo Famicom XML database 8-21-2017 View File Credit goes to Tonesmalone, chex, and Retro Goonie. Special thanks goes to Kondorito for already having box art for the entire database - that made my job a lot easier. I have taken the development thread [Official] database, and done the following 1. Corrected errors in the <manufacturer> field. I am primarily concerned with the name reflecting what is written on the box - and I tried to be as accurate as possible. So if one game uses the typical 'Taito' logo, but another one uses 'Taito Corporation,' I entered the data accordingly. Sometimes there is no logo, and I had to use the small print on the back of a box or the cartridge. And some cases, I had to use the title screen. I tried to give respect to any situations where there were multiple names on the box. In that situation, I entered the data in the format of developer/publisher, or in some cases, developer 1/developer 2/publisher. 2. Re-added two games that were taken out of HyperList - Super Mario Bros (25 Anniversary Edition) (Japan) and Super Maruo (Japan) (Unl) (Translated En). Super Maruo has the enabled="0" feature activated, and if you want it in your collection, you will have to manually alter the database and either change it to enabled="1" or delete it, so that it it is the same as the other entries. It is not just an 'adult' game, it is also pornographic and vulgar. It should be in the list, simply because it exists - but it's also trash in every sense of the word. 3. Changed the Shufflepuck Cafe rating back to HSRS - GA. This game is harmless. There were rumors back in the Amiga days that the scantily clad female would flash you but they are bogus as far as I can tell. And I personally played the Famicom version - there's no nudity. 4. Added 4 new games. Downtown - Nekketsu Koushinkyoku - Soreyuke Daiundoukai (Japan) (Translated En) Gimmick! (Japan) (Translated En) USA Ice Hockey in FC (Japan) Venus Senki (Japan) (Translated En) USA Ice Hockey is not a translation obviously, but any Japanese game with 'USA' in the title fascinates me. I've included a genres.zip download, that includes custom manufacturer genres for every single developer/publisher, years, ratings (even though Super Maruo is the only 'Adult' game), and two custom genres - Translations, and Sports Complete. That about covers it. If you have any suggestions/improvements to offer, please visit the following thread: Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 08/21/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits Tonesmalone, chex, Retro Goonie, Kondorito.  
  16. [OFFICIAL] NEC PC Engine-CD xml Database View File I've decided to take this one in a different direction. Included as a separate file are genre xmls, Publisher/Developer xmls, year xmls, ratings xmls, and two custom xmls - Sports Complete, and Translations. Also included is the genre.xml itself already sorted the way I prefer things on my system, for all the included files. This database actually wasn't terrible to begin with - there were errors of course for the manufacturer field (my personal source of OCD), but there didn't seem to be any bogus developers that I was unable to verify. I've given much more respect to the developers in this database than I have in the past. I am still primarily concerned with the manufacturer field reflecting the name on the box - however - the source site I was using (http://www.pcengine.co.uk) made it *extremely* easy to include both developer *and* publisher data in most cases. The format is typically Developer/Publisher. If the developer was the publisher, then only a single name was used. If there were multiple developers, the format is Developer1/Developer2/Publisher. In some cases, a game may have been developed previously by another company, but had nothing to do with the current port - e.g. Sega/NEC Avenue for 'Bonanaza Bros.' In this situation I felt it to be relevant information. Knowing this stuff as you scroll your games makes HyperSpin more fun. The reason I decided to include genres this time (and possibly in future database contributions) is because with the multiple entities being listed in the <manufacturer> field, it's actually a lot of work to create a genre for every single listing. But that's what I want on my setup. And, if I'm going to put in the work anyways, why not share it with the community? That's what it's all about. If you've done something to make things cool on your end, why not let everyone else enjoy it too? A strong sense of community = a better HyperSpin for everyone. This is more or less one of my 'ultimate' setups without any graphic art. There are no plans to create custom wheels for every single publisher/developer - I'm ok with having plain text for most of my wheels. But if you want the graphic art for the main genres (action, adventure, etc.), all you have to do is copy and paste it (or better yet, sym link it) into the genre\wheel and genre\backgrounds folder. I didn't touch the file names, except for two. I added 4 translations. No corrections to year or ratings. But the manufacturer data is now top notch - which is my thing. Enjoy.

  17. [OFFICIAL] NEC PC Engine XML Database View File I said I didn't have the motivation for this one, but I lied. It was just too offensive to allow it to stand. It had to die a fiery death. There were at least 7 instances where the developer name was seemingly made up out of thin air - ITL, Inter State, Now Production, Pixel, Sankindo, Sting, Tenky, Tomcat System, and West one. There' s no mention of these developers on the jewel case, the hucard, or even the title screen. However, after some googling, I was able to link *a few* of them to the games in question. But it doesn't seem right to put some obscure name as the manufacturer. So, as always - the standard here is the *name on the box/jewel case*. Note that with this particular database, since it was such a mess to begin with, I went the extra mile and listed *multiple* names (e.g. Sega/NEC Avenue) for games where there were multiple names mentioned. I used http://www.pcengine.co.uk as a source, which is very accurate, and then checked that source with actual ebay photos if I could find them. Game names were not changed. The only data that is a massive improvement here is the publisher/developer data. I declare this the new official. May the old one never again see the light of day.

  18. [OFFICIAL] NEC TurboGrafx-CD xml database View File It's a bit confusing the way they did things for this system. Many games are distributed by 'Turbo Technologies, Inc.' But the label on the front of the box will be for the developer. So who then, is the publisher? I typically favor the publisher when making these databases, for one reason, and one reason only - I get irritated when the name of the manufacturer in the description above the game name is different than the name on the box. That's it! That's the only reason I do this. People remember the name on the box. That is the company people will almost always associate a game with. But in this particular instance, I went with the label on the box *regardless* of whether or not they were the publisher. The publisher would be NEC in almost all cases, and to put 'NEC' in every field is useless information. Things get confusing here also, because sometimes the developer will have no mention on the box, but maybe in small print on the back of the manual or on the CD. I solved this little dilemma for myself simply by naming the manufacturer after whatever entity took credit on the box. If Hudson Soft or Icom Simulations, Inc. put their label on the cover, then it is a Hudson Soft or Icom Simulations, Inc. game. If that label isn't there, an in it's place there is simply 'NEC,' then it is an NEC game. Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 08/16/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits

    As usual, the HyperList database was a mess in regards to the <manufacturer> field. It's like someone used inaccurate sources like Wikipedia exclusively, copied the information badly, and didn't bother to check anything. I checked the offical thread, it didn't look like anything was done with the Hyperlist database - so I am declaring this the new official. The name on the box is the name in the manufacturer field - none of this 'Turbo Technologies, Inc.' in small print on the back of the box (who was the *distributor* in many cases, not the developer or the publisher). I check the box labels, not a 3rd party source - so if there are errors, they are mine alone. Also note that I give priority to the label name given on the box above all else. If a game was developed by Data East, has the Data East logo on the front, but then in small print on the back it says "Published by NEC," yeah that's getting labelled as a Data East game. Database work isn't fun to me... but I get seriously annoyed when I see inaccurate data. The PC Engine database is about 10x worse but I just don't have the motivation to do that right now. Just trust that the name of the publisher (?)/developer(?)/distributor(?) has about a 50/50 chance of being right every time you see it. There's room for improvement with this database - I didn't check years or rename games pedantically according to the name on the box (the *right* way to name a game). But publisher data is one thing I'd like to always see right, so this is my contribution. If you find fault with this database please bring it to my attention. I hate inaccurate data just as much as you do, trust me.
  20. {Official] Super Nintendo Entertainment System XML Database 7-7-2017 View File This is the official Hyperlist database, cleaned up heavily by myself over four days. It is worth noting for anyone who has downloaded my 'Ultimate SNES' pack that this new database will completely break functionality for that. But, 'Ultimate SNES v2' is in the works, so keep that in mind. Quick list of changes: 1. A more pedantic naming scheme for games. E.g. "Eye of the Beholder" becomes "Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Eye of the Beholder" 2. Game name on the box gets priority over the title screen. E.g. "Sporting News Power Baseball, The" becomes "Sporting News Baseball, The." "Ultima VII - The Black Gate" becomes "Ultima - The Black Gate." 3. Blatant errors. 4. Liberties that were taken in naming that I felt should not have been taken, if any. Again the game name on the box is gospel. 5. ESRB ratings added for all games 1994-present. I checked authentic ebay photos for every single game, as prior to my work, there wasn't a single reliable source for this data, at least that I could find. K-A (Kids to Adults) chosen if the game was released with that rating first, then re-released later with E (Everyone). Some games were initially released with no rating, then released later with E. So for those games, the E rating stays. ELSPA was supposedly around, but I could not find a single PAL SNES box or cartridge with any rating information on it. So I didn't bother adding ratings for the 43 post 1994 Europe games. 6. Very accurate (~98%) publisher data, with publisher named pedantically after the label they used on the actual box, with a few judgement calls by myself. A huge step up from before. I decided against putting a lot of time and effort into date checking. To do so accurately (my own standards) is too much work, and yields too little benefit. I made it a point to research a game when a conflict arose, and that's that. If you find any errors in this database, no matter how small, please bring them to my attention so that I can fix them. I want this database to be the best it can be. Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 07/07/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits

  22. [OFFICIAL ] Sega Dreamcast XMLdatabase 6-7-2017 View File This is a combination of the official hyperlist xml, the 'official' thread that Tonesmalones and others contributed to, and work done by me. I'm trying to steer away from renaming 'ROM' names. It's a hassle for the entire community. At the end of the day the 'game name' or 'file name' is irrelevent, what displays in HyperSpin (currently, the description) is what matters. Big changes are coming with the way we do databases, but for now, I prefer to change the 'description' name only, unless the ROM name is particularly offensive to me (e.g. Sega Rally Championship 2 instead of Sega Rally 2: Sega Rally Championship. Also not that Tonesmalones made it a point to utilize semicolons in the descriptions. I agree with this, it looks more 'professional' like a movie title. Hyphens will still be used for games like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Fight for the Future, also in certain instances, like Resident Evil - Code: Veronica. What I'm trying to avoid is double instances of anything. It looks sloppy. Again, these changes are only in the description, the filenames will use hyphens for everything. I understand that the current consensus is to include 'everything playable,' even mahjong games that require you to navigate a Japanese menu to even play. I have mixed feelings on this. I didn't include stuff like this because I consider it culturally insignificant. If you take issue with this, speak up. But it's more work for everyone involved - it means someone has to make a 'Hentai Tentacle Master Gangbang Mahjong part 5' wheel, box art, video, etc. I have no desire for these kind of stuff in the official list, playable or not. Games that are either 'unplayable' or 'culturally insignificant' have been exported to an 'exclude' list. The idea is, you can easily merge the official list and the exclude list, to have every game if you so desire. This should please everyone. If you're mad that a game wasn't included, well, there's the exclude list. Feel free to add it yourself. If you believe there have been errors made, and some Japanese games belong in the main list, by all means, bring it to my attention, we'll make it happen. Games have been checked for publisher and rating accuracy. The list is certifiably 96% accurate, there me be minor updates as I continue to work on my 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast' project. As always, if there are errors, feel free to bring them to my attention. We all want the same thing here - accurate data. Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 06/07/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits  
  23. Nintendo 64 2.0 Dev Version

    Nintendo 64 2.0 Dev Version View File A small update to the N64 development database. I added CRC values that were missing for the Japanese games and added the following translations: Animal Forest (Doubutsu no Mori) (Translated En by Zoinkity) new, aka. Animal Crossing, I left the Japanese title in Bomberman 64 (Japan) (Arcade Edition) (Translated En by Zoinkity) replaces Bomberman 64 (Japan) (Arcade Edition) Chameleon Twist (Japan) (Translated En by Zoinkity) different gamplay from the international version Densha de Go! 64 (Japan) (Translated En by Zoinkity) I left the untranslated Japanese version in because I did not playtest it, I currently only run RetroArch and that crashes on this Note: I only gave credit to the translator in the description, the game name will just have '(Translated En)' All CRCs I added are based on the Doctor V64 format (Technically speaking: byte-swapped big-endian), that the rest of the datfile seems to have been generated from. Personally I do prefer the Mr. Backup Z64 format, since that uses the native byte order (plain big-endian), meaning when you open the file in a hex editor you can read the cartridge title without twisting your mind Incidentally that is also the fileformat you need to use when you apply the translation patches to the original ROMs. Translation patches come from: RomHacking.net When you need to convert ROMs to the appropriate format, I suggest you try ucon64 which is kind of swiss army knife Submitter EyMannMachHin Submitted 05/28/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits  
  24. MAME software list and HyperSpin

    I thought I should leave another message here on the Android board, too. Even though the CMD method from @thatman84 does sort of work for me (it does for my Atari 5200 setup, but breaks again on the Bally Astrocade), the MAME Software list method works 100% of the time for me. So I came up with a little Windows Powershell Script (after only learning about it this week) that will read a MAME software list and a HyperSpin database and convert the game names it finds in them to MAME software list names, so you can use the ROMs with those names. It only does matching by CRC so it will possibly leave a few unchanged (actually A7800 doesn't match at all with the HyperSpin database, but RetroArch comes with it's own core for A7800 ) but it will give you a start without having to manually convert them all. http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/files/file/13773-swlists-hs-convertps1/

    This is a Windows Powershell script. It will take the information from a MAME software list and from a HyperSpin database XML and try to match the entries by the ROM CRC32 value. When it finds a match, it will update the information from the HyperSpin Database XML to the MAME software list name. When it doesn't find a match for a game in the HyperSpin data, it will log that event. When done, it will write the information to an output file of your choosing (be careful, you can choose to overwrite your original database ) You can configure the files either in the script itself using your favourite text editor, or you comment them out and the script will open Open and Save file dialogs, so you can pick them yourself at runtime. And you definitely need to open and edit it to match your MAME and HyperSpin config. And READ the Fine Comments I left in there about how it works and what it does Note: This is a Powershell script. On Windows 8.1 and above, Powershell comes preinstalled with your Windows. Windows 8 and below can install Powershell, by downloading it from Microsoft https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/mt173057.aspx But even on Windows 8.1 and 10 you will need to relax the the execution policy to allow to run those scripts locally. This can be done by starting an elevated (aka "Run as administrator") powershell and execute the following command: Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned Disclaimer: It did not break my system. It does not do any nasty stuff to your Windows environment. So you should be good, too. But you should always be careful and work on your backups!
