About This File
Nintendo 64 fans, this is for you. If you want to know exactly what this is, read my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' or 'Ultimate Sega Saturn' descriptions.
This pack contains the usual. But it is quite thorough and complete. As with my last project, I consider this my best one yet. Full 2D box, 3D box, box back, and cartridge art. In case anyone is wondering what the point of the box backs is, if you have RocketLauncher's 'Pause' configured correctly, this stuff will all show up there under the 'artwork' tab, and you can zoom in on it and actually read it. See the picture below.
Full publisher wheels, for every single publisher - and every single one of them is authentic for the N64 era. I did a handful of redraws, and I'm getting a lot better at that sort of thing. Also, I made it a point to use drop shadow heavily, so that the logos look awesome, and they stand out more when they overlap. It looks a lot less amateurish than some of my previous work.
This has the newest official database that I just released the other day, and it has new box art (2D, 3D, and box back), cartridge art, and wheels for all the new games. Also, I went ahead and included screenshots of the games in the 'video' folder so that you have something displaying other than static when the game is selected. Emu movies is typically slow to update anything, so I figure it's better than nothing.
I have about 30 ish themes from the community that I liked, and I included them. I re-did someone else's F-Zero X theme. It isn't great (I'm not a theme guy), but I wanted Samurai Goroh and Captain Falcon, two of the most recognizable characters. I also changed the background. The original background had an F-Zero logo, and then there was another F-Zero logo. Can't have that. Plays the "Car Select" theme music. Also, Killer Instinct Gold plays the KI Gold Theme.
I decided to add 'year' databases this time. Why not? It's easy to add, and sometimes it's interesting to have. I put it in the farthest reaches of the genre wheel, since I consider it the least useful. But it's there if you want it.
Most of the custom databases are self-explanatory. But you'll love this... in the "Nintendo 64 Expansion Pak" and "Nintendo Transfer Pak" wheels, instead of displaying year and publisher above the game, it displays relevant information, e.g. for Majora's Mask: "Required. Increases texture detail, on-screen models and effects, and removes fog." See the screenshot below. All the data is pulled directly from wikipedia, and not every game has data. But I thought that would be a nice addition to that particular custom database. Again, the whole purpose of these projects is to develop a sort of 'digital museum.' If there was a way to manipulate the databases to display even more information, I surely would.
Credit goes to the community for all box arts and wheels (except for the new stuff mentioned above). All publisher wheels and custom wheels done by me.
If anyone would like to use anything in this pack (or any of my other packs for that matter) for their project(s), feel free to do so. I don't want anyone thinking this is some sort of proprietary thing. This is for the community, without which, I wouldn't have 99% of the content that I have in my HyperSpin project. If you feel you can take my work and make something even better or unique, by all means, make something better or unique.
If there are any mistakes, no matter how small, please message me and I will fix them.
Ultimate Sega Dreamcast is still in the works, stay tuned. It needs a lot of work. Gamecube might be up next, or I might just plow through Dreamcast. We'll see.
What's New in Version 1.0.1
The Tetris 64 logo had the outer glow cropped off a bit short, I updated just that logo. Just download it, and drag and drop it on top of the other one to replace it.
