Black predator I appreciate the link to update but I may have clicked on the wrong link within and bad things starting popping up so I instantly exited.. I am assuming that it's probably my old version and will have to go with the steam version I just can't afford to go to a bad site it's going to give me all the bad stuff .. But when I turn the module to false not true on the module do you have all games that's when it doesn't work...

When you say it doesn't work at all what exactly does it do?

Just sit at the press start screen? Just sit at the main menu screen? Start then exit? Are you doing anything unusual you aren't telling us like running the game in portrait mode etc...

It looks like it's starting to load but stays on the table screen so you can spin to another table doesn't look like it even tries

So it actually navigates properly into the table select screen (where it can scroll up/down through the tables), but then it just sits on the first table and doesn't scroll at all or even start the table it's sitting on?

EDIT: Wait, are you actually saying that it stays in the Hyperspin wheel and doesn't launch the game at all? Be very specific.

Yes it's not launching at all when I set the module to false for having all the tables but if it's true it launches and works right selecting the tables up to a certain point but I know I don't have all the tables and it needs to be set to false ?

OK then I think I know what's happening.

Your version probably has the old UI. So when you have it set to true the game is launching and instead of the module navigating to the table select menu its navigating to the exit button and selecting that and closing the game. Possibly doing all that behind the RL fade screen so you never even see it happening.

So the problem is how old the version is. Running a much newer version would fix that or if you send me a screens shot of your main menu I could probably whip you up a custom version of the module that works with your game.

Ok, give this a shot and see if it works. Make a backup of your Pinball Arcade.ahk found in RocketLauncher>modules>Pinball Arcade (just rename it to something like "ORIGINAL Pinball Arcade.ahk").

Then replace it with the one attached (renamed to just "Pinball Arcade.ahk"). Set All_Tables to = false, with the My_Tables section filled in with your actual tables and see if it works.

Thanks for the help but it did not work, if I select false (do you have all games)it just stays at the start screen and nothing else and if I select true it goes down to my tables and just stays there.. I just guess it's my old version but what's weird like I said earlier is when I use the ahk in gigapig hyperspin build it works up to ( on if true is selected) the Harley table then on haunted house it goes back to Harley then about 5 tables later (I think) later it gets back to the correct table..strange I guess but the strange thing to me is false seems not to work at all.

Thanks for the help but it did not work, if I select false (do you have all games)it just stays at the start screen and nothing else and if I select true it goes down to my tables and just stays there..

OK we'll just fix it the hard way.

 

I just guess it's my old version but what's weird like I said earlier is when I use the ahk in gigapig hyperspin build it works up to ( on if true is selected) the Harley table then on haunted house it goes back to Harley then about 5 tables later (I think) later it gets back to the correct table..strange I guess but the strange thing to me is false seems not to work at all.

That's not weird at all. Like I said earlier that's normal and shows it's working. And the reason false doesn't work at all is because you're trying to use ane an old version the module isn't built for.

Here's the other way to fix it since that AHK didn't work.

delete the custom one I sent you and go back to using the original (but keep a backup copy of it).

 

Now open the module itself up so it can be edited.

1. Go down to line 71: LastMyTable

Make sure it is actually set to the table your table selection actually starts on. If you own the Addams Family table then you don't need to change this line.

 

2. Now go to line 72: myTables

Now delete all the tables that you don't have from this list. When you're done it should be only the tables you actually have, in the correct order.  Just make sure you keep the single | that separates each table. Should just take you a couple minutes

 

3. Now switch All_Tables to = true and delete any tables written into the My-Tables section.

 

That should fix it because now having All_Tables = true is actually true because it will match the table list in the module itself! And now when it is selecting tables it won't be skipping because it won't be accounting for tables that aren't actually there.

 

 

Here's a tip that applies to pretty much all things HyperSpin/RocketLauncher/Emulators... always use the correct versions of things.

With this if you had used the 1.50.10 version game the module was for it probably would have worked first shot. With MAME always make sure your Rom set matches you MAME version matches your CHDs which matches your database. Make sure your Demul version matches your Demul rom set etc...

 

A lot of the problems people have are caused because they're trying to mis-match things

Does anyone know where to get the wheel art and media for this complete set?


Believe there are themes and a wheel set here in the downloads section. For any missing wheels just grab them off Google like normal.

This guide saved my life thank you. In return here are some of the themes I created thus far for pinball arcade. If you like them let me know cause I really have no idea where to post these. Also I'm not done yet. I've been doing them alphabetically and I'm only up to Funhouse.  If you like them and or know a better place for me to share them then please let me know. Im really proud of how the themes from central park up Funhouse turned out, with that said I will probably change the first ones latter on too to match those.  If anyone else wants to repost these somewhere feel free. I wish I knew how to post a snapshot or screencapture pic of them for you.

And thanks again for this awesome guide. IT tooks some tinkering but I finally got everything working great. All games are selecting itself like magic. Thank you so much.

Ok I hope I didn't upset anyone by posting my themes for pinball arcade here. I can also share my wheels and vids if anyone wants. But the videosnaps have no sound. I found them that way after hours of searching the net. but still does the trick.

      I have a fully working build for Commodore Amiga now on my NVIDEA Shield (2017 model). It took me a good while to get it up and running.

      I thought it might be useful to post an 'all in one place' tutorial. Thanks go to Honosuseri over in this post for convincing me it was possible.
      Commodore Amiga is infamously painful to configure on any and all emulation setups. Retroarch takes the pain out of some of this, since we don't need individual .uae files for every single game now. But there are still some hoops to jump through.
      Onto the tutorial
       
      1. Find/setup your own Hyperspin
      Hyperspin is free and available on this very website. Install the app on your NVIDEA Shield, and compile your roms and Hyperspin setup on an appropriately sized external harddrive/USB.
      As for the ROMs, videos, wheel images and all the aesthetic stuff you need to get your setup running, you will have to source that yourselves. The Hyperspin website is good for some material, emumovies for videos, and Google and Archive dot org for everything in between. 
      For this setup I used a properly named romset for Commodore Amiga in .zip format, but you can also use .lha or .hdf format. .lha is smaller in size, but all of these run pretty much the same on Retroarch now. 
      There is no need for those pesky .uae files anymore!!!!!!!!!!
      Once you have all your roms, you will need to allocate them to the right videos and images and build your .xml database. The info for how to do this is available elsewhere on this very website. I used HyperspinChecker to do this.
      Now, onto the part where we make Hyperspin and Retroarch play nicely so you can finally play your Commodore Amiga games 
      2. WHDLoad and kickrom setup (bios file preparation)
      I obviously can't link to kickroms or WHDload.hdf and some other stuff, but Google is your friend.
      You can get kickroms legally as part of the Amiga Forever app on Google Play Store for only £1.79.
      You ABSOLUTELY NEED to get hold of these EXACT kickroms:
      kick34005.A500 kick37175.A500 kick40063.A600 kick40068.A1200 Some info on kickrom file names and how to match them up correctly can be found here.
      MAKE SURE THE FILENAMES ARE PRECISE! I left one of those As in lowercase and Retroarch didn't like it.
      You also need a properly prepared WHDLoad.hdf file: ADD THESE EXACT KICKROMS TO YOUR WHDload.hdf file (guide to do this here using ADF Opus)
      Copy all these file to the external drive you are keeping your Hyperspin setup on (I made a 'bios' folder in mine for safe keeping).
      3. Retroarch Setup
      Install the latest Retroarch on your NVIDEA Shield (probably works on other Android setups too). You can do this through the Google Play store, but as of writing this, version 1.8.9_GIT definitely works.
      You will need to make sure you have setup a way to load the Retroarch main menu from within games. Go to 'Settings', 'Input', 'Hotkeys' and set the 'Menu Toggle Gamepad Combo' to something like 'Select + Start'.
      Download the latest Commodore - Amiga (P-UAE) core from within Retroarch (use 'Online Updater' menu)
      Now 'Load Core' and choose the P-UAE Core. Start the core, then immediately go back to the Retroarch menu (Start + Select). From the 'Quickmenu' select 'Options'. Change the 'Model' here to something with plenty of power like the 'A1200 (2MB + 8MB)'. Scroll down to 'Global Boot HD' and 'WHDLoad Support' and make sure both of these are marked as 'Files'.
      One other thing from within Retroarch: having a way to 'Quit' from within games is useful for Hyperspin. So go to 'Settings', 'Hotkeys' choose a button for 'Quit Retroarch' (I use the click of my Left Analogue, but anything will do). You may also need to mess around with button mappings, but most of this should work fine if you have a NVIDEA Shield compatible gamepad. Mouse and keyboard are also, obviously, nice additions for Amiga stuff.
      Go back to 'Quick Menu', 'Overrides' and select 'Save Core Overrides' to make sure your Retroarch Amiga setup is saved.
      Lastly, and very importantly...
      Leave Retroarch. You will need an Android directory viewing program like 'FX File Explorer' for this step. Copy the EXACT kickroms listed above and the WHDload.hdf file you created into the /Retroarch/System/ folder on the INTERNAL drive of the NVIDEA Shield.
      4. Commodore Amiga.ini Commands
      In your Hyperspin setup you should now have all your roms, videos, images, menu setup, and a Commodore Amiga.xml database file all neat and tidy.
      You now need to get Hyperspin to talk to Retroarch properly.
      Back on your PC, load your Hyperspin folder and go to the /Settings_Android/ folder.
      Create or open the Commodore Amiga.ini in a text editor. Most of the stuff in here will be the same as other systems, but you can find my ini file attached here.
      Make sure the top lines in your ini read like this:
      [exe info] path=H:\hyperspin\emulators\Commodore Amiga\ rompath=Roms/Commodore Amiga/roms userompath=true exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture romextension=zip,hdf,lha,HDF,ZIP,LHA parameters=cores/puae_libretro_android.so searchsubfolders=false pcgame=false winstate=HIDDEN hyperlaunch=true Each of these lines corresponds to your setup. So if you have your roms folder somewhere else, you need to tell the file. If you are ONLY using .zip versions of your roms, then you don't need the entire 'romextension=zip,hdf,lha,HDF,ZIP,LHA'  line - you can change this to just 'romextension=zip' and it will work fine. (But my line here covers all the possible rom extensions, so you can leave it). The 'exe' and 'parameters' entries are really important, as this tells Hyperspin to load Retroarch, and then Retroarch which core to load for Commodore Amiga.
      Save your file, and hook your Hyperspin external drive back to your NVIDEA Shield.
      5. Play some games
      Everything *should* be working now. If you are having problems with videos and roms matching up, or entries showing in the Amiga menu on your Hyperspin, then that is an issue with your original setup. There are many tutorials out there.
      I can vouch that THIS EXACT setup works great, and loads and plays most Amiga games I have thrown at it without too many glitches.
      6. Now, please answer me a Q 
      When using an external mouse in Retroarch and playing a game like Lemmings, I get TWO cursors - the in game Lemmings cursor, and the NVIDEA Shield arrow.
      Does anyone know how to get rid of this for good? Thanks
      Commodore Amiga.ini

      Please note my knowledge of this system does not run deep but everything here works and plays fine.
      What is it?
      Capcom Play System III or CPS-3 is an arcade system board that was first used by Capcom in 1996 with the arcade game Red Earth. It was the second successor to the CP System arcade hardware, following the CP System II. It would be the last proprietary system board Capcom would produce before moving on to the Dreamcast-based Naomi platform.
      How to emulate in Android (Shield TV)
      Quick and simple way is with the FBA core of RetroArch and matching FBA romset.
      At time of writing current versions are:-
      Core:- FB Alpha v0.2.97.42 (commit 6b7a701)
      FBA:- 0.2.97.42 (9 July 2017)
      Other options are MAME core in RetroArch or MAME4Droid reloaded (0.139mame romset). I believe the CHD files are needed for some games and with MAME4Droid, at least,  I had to "install" the game when it 1st launched in the emulator. That process took about 20-30mins and not all worked. Redearth was one I tested and "installed".
      Games
      JoJo no Kimyouna Bouken: Miraie no Isan (Japan 990913) = (jojoba.zip)
      JoJo's Venture (USA 990108) = (jojo.zip)
      Red Earth (Euro 961121) = (redearth.zip)
      Street Fighter III 2nd Impact: Giant Attack (USA 970930) = (sfiii2.zip)
      Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future (EUR 990608) = (sfiii3.zip)
      Street Fighter III: New Generation (USA 970204) = (sfiii.zip)
       
      Note:-
      I replaced this entry in the official database with the european version as I could not get it to launch in FBA.
      Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future (USA 990608) = (sfiii3u.zip)
      EDIT:- USA version is working with RetroArch core version 0.2.97.44. Make sure you have the correct RomSet version
      Setup Steps...
      1.  Open RetroArch and download the Arcade (FA Alpha) core.
                                     Main Menu -> Online Updater -> Core Updater

      1a. Transfer your games to your prefered location (You only need the six zip files listed in the database and above)

      2. Add the "Capcom Play System III" system to your Hyperspin setup with HyperHQ on a PC and transfer the files/folder to your device or by manually creating all the relevent folders to your device. (Download at bottom of guide)
      3. Add Capcom Play SYstem III to your Main Menu.xml or Main Menu_Android.xml
      4. Add these lines to your Capcom Play System III.ini file found in Hyperspin/Settings/ or Hyperspin/Settings_Android/
      exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture
      romextension=zip
      parameters=cores/fbalpha_libretro_android.so
       
      PLAY SOME STREET FIGHTER .......................
       
      Extra Notes:-
      Under the FB Alpha "Quick Menu -> Options" you can select between different regions. Choosing a different region will give you the different loading screens along with other things I'm not sure about.

      (FYI having trouble with upping some screenshots and the new formatting so please excuse the wierd format)
      Converting 16x9 Themes for Hyperspin Android
      List of theme animation compatibility
      https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1-8Ofa_GrAdnQ22nf7W7QYVeQoKBQxA_-
      (I am in NO way competent with artwork resolutions but my method works and looks good to me)
      Why...
      Because sometimes that theme you really liked just doesn’t display correctly 
      The main reason for theme problems is the use of animation and scripting of the .swf assets in the “theme”.zip
      (It’s best to replace themes that cause Hyperspin to crash out, but you can try to convert them)
       What’s covered...
             1.      Extract PNG assets from swf files
             2.      Reduce HQ artwork to be compatible with Hyperspin
             3.      Further reduce artwork width to allow for Hyperspin 4x3 -> 16x9 stretching
             4.      Recompile your theme
       
      What is Needed:
      Update on resizing tool.
            Fotosizer is now advised against because of the compression/quality loss it causes.
      pPlease use Photoshop or this program recommended by @IceLancer https://sourceforge.net/projects/easyimagesizer/?source=typ_redirect
      A    A  Fotosizer (http://www.fotosizer.com/) batch resize image files
              B.     Flash Decompiler (https://www.free-dec...flash/download/) extract png’s from swf
              C.     Time and Themes
       I have done a little testing for Main Menu themes. This spreadsheet shows what I have tested and its Android compatibility status. The sheet has download section links for all themes I have tried.
       
       
      Let’s get to it... 
       
      So grab a theme zip you want to play with and Unzip it. Any 16x9 Main Menu, Game or System Default theme will do.
       
       
      BakerMan provided me a guide to extracting the PNG’s from SWF but it has since been lost. 
      These are the steps
              1.      Open JPEXS once downloaded and installed from link above
              2.      Click on the “Open” tab and browse to the offending .swf file from your unzipped theme
       
           SCREENSHOT
      3.     
       

       

             3.      Right click on “Images” on the left and click “Export Selection”
      (At this step you may find multiple images. If these images are only parts of one image, say the arms and legs of a character, you will have to lose that image completely from the theme or replace it with another one)
       
      SCREENSHOT2
             4.      Click “ok” to PNG file type then choose a location for the exported images (Default is Desktop. Only export one at a time and  then move the PNG out of the output folder as it overwrites each one if not)
       
       
      SCREENSHOT3
             5.      Now browse to that Output location and you will find your PNG’s in an “images” folder.
       

       
      You are now ready for phase 2 – Resizing the images
      Note, fotosizer does cause a reduction in artwork quality. If your sensitive to this you may want to use another method. (If you know of a better program please comment) I only run a 37' screen and don't mind myself.
      (Resizing Artwork is covered comprehensively by Avar in his tutorials found HERE)
      Open Fotosizer Add the Artwork that was converted to PNG Reduce the images to 68% KEEP MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO TICKED (this is the best size for the ones I have done)  
              4.       Move the right side settings bar down and select an Output Folder
       

      5   Remove that Artwork from Fotosizer
      6.   Add the newly resized artwork back into Fotosizer
      7.   Reduce the Width to 75% (to allow HS to stretch it back when its loaded)
      8.   UNTICK MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO
       
             9.   Now add this finished art back into the theme folder and zip it up again
            
             10.       Name the zip file the same as you have it in the “Main Menu.xml” database
       
      Final Thoughts...
       
       
      Now when you try this theme out you may find the artwork has slightly changed location. If so adjust the Artwork positions in the theme.xml file within the theme.zip OR load it into Hypertheme and adjust it as required
       
       
      Hope this helps someone.
