  1. Ultimate Sega Genesis

    Version 2.0.0

    116 downloads

    HyperSpin is not just a way to play games. That is secondary to me. I see it as a sort of 'digital museum.' That is the inspiration behind my 'Ultimate' default themes. You don't just get the best quality images (box arts, cartridge scans, wheels) I could find. You also get a huge number of custom genre databases, showcasing the games in a filtered fashion. Want to check out all of the 'Mega Mouse' games? With this setup, you can. Want to check out some 'Sega Channel' exclusive games? No problem. Want to see every game that Konami published? I've got you covered. I've tried to imagine every common filter for games that you could imagine, and implemented it in a fun way. Because emulation to me is about preservation of our culture. 20 years from now, your kids and your grandkids will be able to look at the work we've done here, and hopefully appreciate our culture as much as you and I do. This is my contribution to the community, I hope you enjoy it. If you like the work that I do, please show your appreciation by clicking the 'like' button or saying a few words. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way, and it keeps me motivated to keep giving you more. What is included: Full (as in every game) wheel art, full cartridge art, full 3D box art, 857/954 2D box backs +2D box fronts (this will display in Rocketlauncher's 'Pause' if you have it configured correctly), an updated and very much improved official database (using the 'publisher' instead of the developer), 116 different publisher wheels/databases (all but 14) including wheel art, several custom genre wheels+art+backgrounds, regular genre wheels+art+backgrounds, a default theme, letters, sounds, pointer, and every game theme I could find (a couple of them fixed+improved). What is not included: Videos, games Instructions: 1.In your HyperSpin\media folder, rename your current 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis' to disable it (in details view, it will autosort to the beginning of the list). Drag and drop the new 'Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the HyperSpin\media folder. You can delete the old '1Sega Genesis' folder later on, if you decide to keep everything included in this pack. 2.In your 'Databases' folder, rename the 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis to disable the original database folder. Drag and drop the 'Databases\Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the 'databases' directory. 3. Copy or move your old Sega Genesis videos (or download new ones from emumovies.com) into the new HyperSpin\media\Sega Genesis\Video folder. 4. Open 'HyperHQ/Wheel Settings' go to your Sega Genesis wheel, and click on the 'wheel' tab. Change the wheel image sizes as follows: Large: 290 Small: 195 This is so that the wheels don't interfere with the Genesis console/cartridges theme, and everything displays properly. The proper settings are pictured below. Credits: Most or all sounds, wheels, letters, themes, 3D box art and cartridge art came from various sources in the community, I take no credit. 2D box fronts and backs I got from the following thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ and credit goes to the respective contributors. The default theme is not mine, however it was tweaked by me, as were the themes for 'ShadowHunt' and Streets of Rage 2 (to make the videos display correctly), and Sonic Spinball (background was not sized properly). My own personal contributions: 1. The database. I went through the official database, and changed the manufacturer field to reflect the publisher of the game, rather than the developer. Most people don't care about some obscure developer that developed one or two games, only to never be heard from again. People remember the name on the box. That is what i wanted displayed in the info above the game name. Other changes include adding "Battle Mania Daiginjou - Trouble Shooter Vintage (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)." This is an alternate trasnlation for "Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)," as the creator of both patches stated that both versions were worth a playthrough for fans of the game. I ditched the one French translation "Surging Aura" and reverted it back to the Japanese game. No sense putting extra effort into patching a game or hunting down a patched game if you still can't understand what is being said. Miracle Piano is not an adventure game. Changed to 'Educational' genre. Body Count is a gun game, not a platformer. I'm concerned about the quality of the genre field in the official database as well, but I already put 2 days into this, and to be frank I have better things to do. Hopefully someone will overhaul it in the future. For now, I consider what I've done a significant improvement over the official database and I'm betting you will too. Last change - if a translated game has an alternate title in English, that was preferred as the 'description' entry. The 'name' entry was left alone so that your videos will still work without having to rename them. 2. Collecting, editing, and creating publisher genre wheel art for 116 different publishers for the Sega Genesis. I combined 'Virgin' and 'Virgin Games,' 'Hi Tech Expressions' and 'Hi Tech Entertainment,' and 'Sportsmaster' and 'Codemasters' (Sportsmaster was a shortlived sub label of Codemasters, and I couldn't find a quality scan, and since it was just a few games, I just combined them). There are only 14 rather obscure publishers that were not included, and they are: C&E, Chuanpu Technology, CYX, Home Data, KABAL_MK (creator of Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy Hack, so not even an actual publisher so much as a hacker), King Tec Information Co., Never Ending Soft Team, Senchi Technology, Shogakukan Production, Sik, Soft Vision, Sportsmaster, Supervision, and Wonder Amusement Studio. I'm only listing them here in case someone wants to contribute the last missing publisher wheels, then this project will be even more complete than it already is. But most (if not all) of those publishers only produced 1 or 2 games. This project was a ton of work. I redrew many (probably 20+) logos. The quality is decent, even with my very average photoshop skills, because I put a lot of work into them. That, and I'm getting better. 3. Custom genre databases, from various sources I've found. They include: American Games - All games with (USA), (World), or (USA, Somothercountry) in them. European Games - All games with Europe in parentheses, that did not also have 'USA' in them. Does contain games with '(Japan, Europe).' Australian Games - The one Australian game (Daze Before Christmas) Brazilian Games - All games with 'Brazil' in parentheses. Chinese Games - All games with 'China' in parentheses. Japanese Games - All games with 'Japan' in parentheses, that did not also contain 'USA' or 'Europe.' Translations - All translated games. Prototypes - All prototypes. Homebrew - All homebrew games in the official list I was able to research and verify. Hacks - All hacks (only 2 games) that were included in the official database. Co-op games - All or most co-op games. Very accurate. Credit goes to: http://segaclassics.blogspot.com/2012/11/genesis-multiplayer-co-op-games.html Best of co-op games - The 'co-op games' database contained 106 games. The source that I used had them rated. This database contains the top 50. Multiplayer - A list of multiplayer games, data was compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' Mega Mouse - All 'Mega Mouse' games from the official list. 6 buttons - A list of games that utilize the 6 button gamepad compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' I considered adding a '3 button' database, but since it would be quite a chore to compile the accurate data necessary for such a task, I decided against it. Sega Channel - A list of 'Sega Channel' exclusives. May have some ommissions, but reasonably accurate, as it's a short list. Themes: All games with themes included (everything that I could find). Action, Adventure, Beat'em-up, etc. - Your typical genres. It should be noted that I personally found a few errors without even trying. This database needs an overhaul, but it most likely won't be from me. That about covers it. If you find any errors, no matter how small, please share them here so that I can fix them.
  2. Ultimate Sega CD

    Ultimate Sega CD View File I checked the database for accuracy, and made a number of changes, also added 3 new games (see pictures) - "Bloodshot," and two translations. The 'Two Players' and 'Multiplayer' wheels are guaranteed to be the most accurate data compiled on the net, as I checked the backs of the boxes for every single game for the data, and if a game was missing data, I played the game and checked it myself. If you want a description of what this is, please check out 'Ultimate Sega Genesis.' Enjoy!

  4. Ultimate SNES

    Version 1.0.2

    498 downloads

    For those who are familiar with my "MAME 0.181 full wheels (minus casino), genre art, databases" project, you should already know what to expect. The idea is, you get everything you need as a one stop solution. Hopefully I'm saving someone else time that they could be spending actually playing the games. Included in this pack is an edited version (for typos, errors, and inconsistencies) of the official database, 132 (genre, publisher, and custom) genre databases, genre wheel art to go with it, every theme I could get my hands on, a default theme, wheel sounds, letters, the official wheel art, and complete 2D, 3D, and cartridge art. When I say 'complete,' I mean even the protos and homebrews. Every game in the official list has a 2D box, 3D box, and cart. Credit and thanks: Themes: Everyone who contributed an SNES theme. Too many people to name. I'm not sure who made the default theme included in this pack but it wasn't me. I simply tweaked it to make the videos display properly. If you know who did it, please PM me so I can give proper thanks. Box Art: (see the following thread) https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ Azzbarb @ HyperspinKoolbrez67 @ HyperspinMildanti @ HyperspinBajaResident @ HyperspinDonnie1979 @ HyperspinJuniorUnderground @ HyperspinBBB @ HyperspinWallyWonka @ HyperspinCrapahute @ ColecoBoxArt.comShenske @ TheCoverProject.netArseen @ TheCoverProject.netLumberjack42 @ TheCoverProject.netRx_79 @ TheCoverProject.netsegagamer @ TheCoverProject.netEktoPhase @ TheCoverProject.netSheep2001 @ TheCoverProject.net1980coelho @ TheCoverProject.netmel @ TheCoverProject.netPeachWaffles @ TheCoverProject.netRaven1280 @ TheCoverProject.netOther Cover Artists @ TheCoverProject.netmastershoes @ DarkUmbraJabossi @ DarkUmbraToddofWar420 @ gbatempTetsuo Shima @ gbatempsion_zaphod @ gbatempmike1 @ gbatempdrakorex @ gbatempRiCK420 @ gbatemphalen @ gbatempCypher16 @ gbatempSeam @ gbatemphalen @ gbatempWiimpathy @ gbatempPepois @ gbatempModdingBird @ gbatempKeith_Loving @ gbatempBeast @ DarkUmbraTimothy RookerNeoCverA/loopyeddie @ SouthtownOther Cover Artists @ Southtowntravistouchdown @ AtariAgeFelyx @ AtariAgeJeffrey_Bones @ AtariAge 2D box: Basically all I did here was set up a batch routine in photoshop to crop out the fronts and backs, using the art from the above link. It took me all of 5 minutes to make the best quality SNES box art I've seen. Then I used azzbarb's set to fill in some blanks. Fixed Barbie Vacation Adventure box, Super Copa box (looked kinda rough). Box Backs: All the box backs (700 out of the official 807 games) are in Artwork4 folder by default. If you have Rocketlauncher configured properly, you can read the backs of the boxes in the 'Artwork' tab in Pause. Cartridge: I used the Official HyperSpin set and filled in the blanks. Database: The official of course. This database needs some work in my opinion, particularly to double check the 'manufacturer' field. I fixed the following entries: Jim Power - The Lost Dimension in 3D (USA) database entry, manufacturer is Electro Brain (with a space), consistent with other games containing the space Ultima - Runes of Virtue II (USA), manufacturer/publisher is FCI, not Electronic Arts Victor Legend (USA), manufacturer/publisher Seika Corp. (entry did not have the period before, added for consistency) Changed all entries of 'Sun Soft' as a manufacturer to SunSoft, there should be no space, all other databases I've encountered have it as one word. Plus, there were both Sun Soft and SunSoft in the original database. Ninja Warriors, The (USA), changed manufacturer 'Taito corporation' to 'Taito Corporation.' Super Caesars Palace (USA), changed manufacturer from 'Virgion' to 'Virgin.' Added, created, or edited artwork (Box 2D, Box 3D, Cartridge) for the following games: Apocalypse II (Europe) (Proto) Arcus Odyssey (USA) (Proto) Batman - Revenge of the Joker (USA) (Proto) Classic Kong (World) (Unl) Congo - The Movie - The Secret of Zinj (USA) (Proto) Dragon Ball Z - Hyper Dimension (France) Dragon Ball Z - La Legende Saien (France) Dragon Ball Z - Super Butouden (France) Dragon Ball Z - Ultime Menace (France) MazezaM Challenge (World) (Unl) Miracle Piano Teaching System, The (USA) Mr. Bloopy - Saves the World (USA) (Proto) Network Q Rally (USA) (Proto) Nightmare Busters (Europe) (Proto) RHI Roller Hockey '95 (USA) (Proto) Skipp and Friends (World) (Unl) SpellCraft (USA) (Proto) Super Probotector - Alien Rebels (Europe) Super Shadow of the Beast (USA) (Proto) Tinhead (Europe) (Proto) Uwol - Quest For Money (World) (Unl) Wheels: The official set. I edited 'Mr. Bloopy Saves the World (USA).' It is spelled 'Bloopy,' as per the title screen, original logo had 'Bloppy.' A brief description of some of the custom genre database wheels. All Games: Takes you back to the main wheel. Serves no purpose, other than a starting point. Publishers (Activision, Acclaim, Konami, etc): I've included genre databases (and wheel art to go with them) for 72 different publishers. I didn't get them all, but I got most of the well known ones. I also tried to use a logo that was consistent for the SNES era, but there's a few I couldn't find quality scans for (Gametek and Bulletproof Software comes to mind), so I had to use what I could find. If you'd like to contribute SNES era logos to this project, or higher quality logos than what I've included, please feel free to share them. I have very amateurish photoshop skills. I attempted to do a few redraws (Koei, Sofel, FCI, Hot-B, THQ Toy Headquarters, and Ubisoft. They're acceptable but they could be better. European Games: All games from the official database with (Europe) and (France) in them. Prototypes: All games from the official database with (Proto) in them. Homebrew: All homebrew games that I am aware of from the official database. 2 Player Games: A list of most (if not all) 2 player games. Credit goes to MPQC, see this thread for more details: https://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=15458 Multiplayer: A list of most (if not all) games that use the multitap. I found a google group dedicated to this list. Credit goes to them. Not linked, because I'm not sure if they'd like to be associated with this or not. Super Scope: All Super Scope games. Super: Ever needed to find a game that begins with 'Super' in your alphabetical list, and been frustrated at the hundred thousand regular 'S' games you had to scroll through, then the additional hundred thousand 'Super Something' games you have to scroll through to get to the one you actually wanted? Well, you're not the only one. This was my solution. Themes: All games that have themes. Hacks: A list of unofficial hacks. I can't tell you how to find the file called "SNES Hacks and Translations Pack" that contains every single one of these games. I guess you're on your own. Action, Adventure, Sports, etc.: Your typical genres. Brief instructions: This should be self explanatory, if you've even found this. But a quick rundown. Copy all 139 database files included in this pack to wherever your SNES database is located. You need all of them in order to make the 'genres' function properly. The genre.xml file is already set up and ready to go. Just drag and drop. In my setup, the folder is Databases/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Copy the 'images,' 'sound,' and 'themes' folders to wherever you have these located. On my setup, it is Media/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. If you want to test the new stuff out without losing the old, just change the folder names of the old by putting a '1' in front of them (e.g. 'Images' becomes 1Images). If you're using 'details' view sorted by name, the folders you just disabled will auto-sort to the beginning of the list. If you don't like the new stuff, just delete it, and rename the old stuff back by removing the '1.' I think that about covers it. If you find any errors, please post them here. This *could* be an ongoing project. The whole idea behind this is to have the 'ultimate SNES' solution. If you have ideas on how to make it even better, and would like to contribute, be sure to share them. I have more of these up my sleeve. Particularly, my NES wheel, which puts this project to shame. But it's also a lot of work organize, put together, and upload. So, we'll see.
  5. Version 1.0.0

    I got sidetracked from 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast,' and this is the result. Originally I just intended to get the wheel looking 'respectable,' but then my OCD took over, and well, you know the rest. I hesitated to call this one of my 'Ultimate' setups, because there aren't many games, nor is there a lot of media associated with this system, but then, what else would I call it. So maybe I should define what an 'Ultimate' setup is. An ultimate pack is the best available media, database, and whatever else I could think to include for a system. I take the best stuff I can find from the community, organize it in my own way, then add my own content to spruce it up some more. Credits: Aorin already did up a set of wheels. They're title shots mostly. I prefer plain text for any Japanese system (so that I can easily read the titles), but I've included his set, because I realize some people prefer artwork. This system doesn't have any box art, because the games were broadcast via satellite. Ninja2bceen did a nice pointer. Sounds and letters I grabbed from the community. My contribution: I already had most of the publisher wheels, so I went ahead and did up the rest. Full publisher wheels, and genres/backgrounds. I made modest changes to the database. Usually, I prefer to use the publisher, but in this particular instance, I left things alone for the most part. The publisher would have been Nintendo in most cases. Nippon Computer Systems Corp. became NCS Corp. Panel de Pon - Event '98 (Japan) had 'Intelligent Systems' as the manufacturer, but there is no mention of them anywhere in game - Nintendo takes credit. So I changed it to Nintendo. I did a little bit of research, Intelligent Systems was a 2nd party developer for Nintendo. So either way, it isn't inaccurate to just use Nintendo. Golf Daisuki! O.B. Club (Japan) has a translated patch availabe. I changed the name of the entry to reflect that, and the name in the description is the English name "I Love Golf! (Japan) (Translated En)." The crc was changed to reflect the crc of the file after it is patched, which probably won't do you much good lol. When you go to look for this game, it more than likely won't be the right one. The crc you need is BA9C98D3. I found the forum of the creators of the patch, there's a thread there where someone was complaining about not being able to find the right ROM with the right crc, and they released a patch to convert the ROM to the correct one. Rather than make you go through all that, and since it is simply a patch with no legal nefariousness involved, I've included it here (golfromfix.rar). And also, the IPS patch to translate the game. Apply the golfromfix first, then the "I Love Golf! - Out Of Bounds Club v1.00 IPS.zip" second. I added alternate versions of "BS - Legend of Zelda." They are as follows, with a brief description: 1. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Third Quest (Japan) (Translated En) - Removes the time limit that the normal game has, so that it plays just like a normal Zelda game. Beginners should start with this one. 2. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Link Version (Japan) (Translated En) - Play as Link, instead of the dufus with the baseball cap. 3. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Mottzilla Project (Japan) (Translated En) - Has map 1 and map 2 built in. Since you're going to have a hard time finding videos for this system, I went ahead and included what I have, and screenshots for what I didn't, so that your wheel isn't completely bare. If anyone knows a good source of videos for this system, please do share. If there's any mistakes, please message me so I can fix them. If you feel you have a contribution to improve this project, I welcome any support. golfromfix.rar I Love Golf! - Out Of Bounds Club v1.00 IPS.zip

Open 'HyperHQ/Wheel Settings' go to your Sega Genesis wheel, and click on the 'wheel' tab. Change the wheel image sizes as follows: Large: 290 Small: 195 This is so that the wheels don't interfere with the Genesis console/cartridges theme, and everything displays properly. The proper settings are pictured below. Credits: Most or all sounds, wheels, letters, themes, 3D box art and cartridge art came from various sources in the community, I take no credit. 2D box fronts and backs I got from the following thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ and credit goes to the respective contributors. The default theme is not mine, however it was tweaked by me, as were the themes for 'ShadowHunt' and Streets of Rage 2 (to make the videos display correctly), and Sonic Spinball (background was not sized properly). My own personal contributions: 1. The database. I went through the official database, and changed the manufacturer field to reflect the publisher of the game, rather than the developer. Most people don't care about some obscure developer that developed one or two games, only to never be heard from again. People remember the name on the box. That is what i wanted displayed in the info above the game name. Other changes include adding "Battle Mania Daiginjou - Trouble Shooter Vintage (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)." This is an alternate trasnlation for "Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)," as the creator of both patches stated that both versions were worth a playthrough for fans of the game. I ditched the one French translation "Surging Aura" and reverted it back to the Japanese game. No sense putting extra effort into patching a game or hunting down a patched game if you still can't understand what is being said. Miracle Piano is not an adventure game. Changed to 'Educational' genre. Body Count is a gun game, not a platformer. I'm concerned about the quality of the genre field in the official database as well, but I already put 2 days into this, and to be frank I have better things to do. Hopefully someone will overhaul it in the future. For now, I consider what I've done a significant improvement over the official database and I'm betting you will too. Last change - if a translated game has an alternate title in English, that was preferred as the 'description' entry. The 'name' entry was left alone so that your videos will still work without having to rename them. 2. Collecting, editing, and creating publisher genre wheel art for 116 different publishers for the Sega Genesis. I combined 'Virgin' and 'Virgin Games,' 'Hi Tech Expressions' and 'Hi Tech Entertainment,' and 'Sportsmaster' and 'Codemasters' (Sportsmaster was a shortlived sub label of Codemasters, and I couldn't find a quality scan, and since it was just a few games, I just combined them). There are only 14 rather obscure publishers that were not included, and they are: C&E, Chuanpu Technology, CYX, Home Data, KABAL_MK (creator of Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy Hack, so not even an actual publisher so much as a hacker), King Tec Information Co., Never Ending Soft Team, Senchi Technology, Shogakukan Production, Sik, Soft Vision, Sportsmaster, Supervision, and Wonder Amusement Studio. I'm only listing them here in case someone wants to contribute the last missing publisher wheels, then this project will be even more complete than it already is. But most (if not all) of those publishers only produced 1 or 2 games. This project was a ton of work. I redrew many (probably 20+) logos. The quality is decent, even with my very average photoshop skills, because I put a lot of work into them. That, and I'm getting better. 3. Custom genre databases, from various sources I've found. They include: American Games - All games with (USA), (World), or (USA, Somothercountry) in them. European Games - All games with Europe in parentheses, that did not also have 'USA' in them. Does contain games with '(Japan, Europe).' Australian Games - The one Australian game (Daze Before Christmas) Brazilian Games - All games with 'Brazil' in parentheses. Chinese Games - All games with 'China' in parentheses. Japanese Games - All games with 'Japan' in parentheses, that did not also contain 'USA' or 'Europe.' Translations - All translated games. Prototypes - All prototypes. Homebrew - All homebrew games in the official list I was able to research and verify. Hacks - All hacks (only 2 games) that were included in the official database. Co-op games - All or most co-op games. Very accurate. Credit goes to: http://segaclassics.blogspot.com/2012/11/genesis-multiplayer-co-op-games.html Best of co-op games - The 'co-op games' database contained 106 games. The source that I used had them rated. This database contains the top 50. Multiplayer - A list of multiplayer games, data was compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' Mega Mouse - All 'Mega Mouse' games from the official list. 6 buttons - A list of games that utilize the 6 button gamepad compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' I considered adding a '3 button' database, but since it would be quite a chore to compile the accurate data necessary for such a task, I decided against it. Sega Channel - A list of 'Sega Channel' exclusives. May have some ommissions, but reasonably accurate, as it's a short list. Themes: All games with themes included (everything that I could find). Action, Adventure, Beat'em-up, etc. - Your typical genres. It should be noted that I personally found a few errors without even trying. This database needs an overhaul, but it most likely won't be from me. That about covers it. If you find any errors, no matter how small, please share them here so that I can fix them.

  8. Ultimate SNES

    Ultimate SNES View File For those who are familiar with my "MAME 0.181 full wheels (minus casino), genre art, databases" project, you should already know what to expect. The idea is, you get everything you need as a one stop solution. Hopefully I'm saving someone else time that they could be spending actually playing the games. Included in this pack is an edited version (for typos, errors, and inconsistencies) of the official database, 132 (genre, publisher, and custom) genre databases, genre wheel art to go with it, every theme I could get my hands on, a default theme, wheel sounds, letters, the official wheel art, and complete 2D, 3D, and cartridge art. When I say 'complete,' I mean even the protos and homebrews. Every game in the official list has a 2D box, 3D box, and cart. Credit and thanks: Themes: Everyone who contributed an SNES theme. Too many people to name. I'm not sure who made the default theme included in this pack but it wasn't me. I simply tweaked it to make the videos display properly. If you know who did it, please PM me so I can give proper thanks.

It took me all of 5 minutes to make the best quality SNES box art I've seen. Then I used azzbarb's set to fill in some blanks. Fixed Barbie Vacation Adventure box, Super Copa box (looked kinda rough). Box Backs: All the box backs are in Artwork4 folder by default. If you have Rocketlauncher configured properly, you can read the backs of the boxes in the 'Artwork' tab in Pause. Cartridge: I used the Official HyperSpin set and filled in the blanks. Database: The official of course. This database needs some work in my opinion, particularly to double check the 'manufacturer' field. The official standard is to use the publisher and not the developer, but I've found (without fixing) several games where the developer was used. I could have redone the whole thing but quite frankly I have other projects I'd rather be working on, and this is why it is so important to create accurate databases in the first place. Databases should be the last word for everything you build in your HyperSpin setup. If there's flaws in the database, it affects everything else. I'm sorry if I'm coming across as critical (and a jerk) but I am a perfectionist and if it were *me* responsible for that SNES list, I'd have checked it 10 times from every single field using Don's HyperSpin Tools. So if you're the guy that *is* responsible and you feel like punching me in the face, please, have some humility. I take no issue when someone points out errors on my end. In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way. It is not an insult. It is an effort to communicate and improve, because we all want the same thing. I fixed the following entries: Jim Power - The Lost Dimension in 3D (USA) database entry, manufacturer is Electro Brain (with a space), consistent with other games containing the space Ultima - Runes of Virtue II (USA), manufacturer/publisher is FCI, not Electronic Arts Victor Legend (USA), manufacturer/publisher Seika Corp. (entry did not have the period before, added for consistency) Changed all entries of 'Sun Soft' as a manufacturer to SunSoft, there should be no space, all other databases I've encountered have it as one word. Plus, there were both Sun Soft and SunSoft in the original database. Ninja Warriors, The (USA), changed manufacturer 'Taito corporation' to 'Taito Corporation.' Super Caesars Palace (USA), changed manufacturer from 'Virgion' to 'Virgin.' Added, created, or edited artwork (Box 2D, Box 3D, Cartridge) for the following games: Apocalypse II (Europe) (Proto) Arcus Odyssey (USA) (Proto) Batman - Revenge of the Joker (USA) (Proto) Classic Kong (World) (Unl) Congo - The Movie - The Secret of Zinj (USA) (Proto) Dragon Ball Z - Hyper Dimension (France) Dragon Ball Z - La Legende Saien (France) Dragon Ball Z - Super Butouden (France) Dragon Ball Z - Ultime Menace (France) MazezaM Challenge (World) (Unl) Miracle Piano Teaching System, The (USA) Mr. Bloopy - Saves the World (USA) (Proto) Network Q Rally (USA) (Proto) Nightmare Busters (Europe) (Proto) RHI Roller Hockey '95 (USA) (Proto) Skipp and Friends (World) (Unl) SpellCraft (USA) (Proto) Super Probotector - Alien Rebels (Europe) Super Shadow of the Beast (USA) (Proto) Tinhead (Europe) (Proto) Uwol - Quest For Money (World) (Unl) Wheels: The official set. I edited 'Mr. Bloopy Saves the World (USA).' It is spelled 'Bloopy,' as per the title screen, original logo had 'Bloppy.' A brief description of some of the custom genre database wheels. All Games: Takes you back to the main wheel. Serves no purpose, other than a starting point. Publishers (Activision, Acclaim, Konami, etc): I've included genre databases (and wheel art to go with them) for 72 different publishers. I didn't get them all, but I got most of the well known ones. I also tried to use a logo that was consistent for the SNES era, but there's a few I couldn't find quality scans for (Gametek and Bulletproof Software comes to mind), so I had to use what I could find. If you'd like to contribute SNES era logos to this project, or higher quality logos than what I've included, please feel free to share them. I have very amateurish photoshop skills. I attempted to do a few redraws (Koei, Sofel, FCI, Hot-B, THQ Toy Headquarters, and Ubisoft. They're acceptable but they could be better. European Games: All games from the official database with (Europe) and (France) in them. Prototypes: All games from the official database with (Proto) in them. Homebrew: All homebrew games that I am aware of from the official database. 2 Player Games: A list of most (if not all) 2 player games. Credit goes to MPQC, see this thread for more details: https://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=15458 Multiplayer: A list of most (if not all) games that use the multitap. I found a google group dedicated to this list. Credit goes to them. Not linked, because I'm not sure if they'd like to be associated with this or not. Super Scope: All Super Scope games. Super: Ever needed to find a game that begins with 'Super' in your alphabetical list, and been frustrated at the hundred thousand regular 'S' games you had to scroll through, then the additional hundred thousand 'Super Something' games you have to scroll through to get to the one you actually wanted? Well, you're not the only one. This was my solution. Hacks: A list of non-official hacks. I can't tell you where to find the file called "SNES Hacks and Translations Pack" that contains all the games this list is based on, nor can I explain to you how to do a Google Search. I guess you're on your own. Action, Adventure, Sports, etc.: Your typical genres. Brief instructions: This should be self explanatory, if you've even found this. But a quick rundown. Copy all 139 database files included in this pack to wherever your SNES database is located. You need all of them in order to make the 'genres' function properly. The genre.xml file is already set up and ready to go. Just drag and drop. In my setup, the folder is Databases/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Copy the 'images,' 'sound,' and 'themes' folders to wherever you have these located. On my setup, it is Media/Super Nintendo Entertainment System. If you want to test the new stuff out without losing the old, just change the folder names of the old by putting a '1' in front of them (e.g. 'Images' becomes 1Images). If you're using 'details' view sorted by name, the folders you just disabled will auto-sort to the beginning of the list. If you don't like the new stuff, just delete it, and rename the old stuff back by removing the '1.' I think that about covers it. If you find any errors, please post them here. This *could* be an ongoing project. The whole idea behind this is to have the 'ultimate SNES' solution. If you have ideas on how to make it even better, and would like to contribute, be sure to share them. I have more of these up my sleeve. Particularly, my NES wheel, which puts this project to shame. But it's also a lot of work organize, put together, and upload. So, we'll see.
