Multi Monitor Hyperspin breakout

Recommended Posts

I have a custom cabinet build which requires a specific build of hyperspin. I need the 'Wheels' to be output on one monitor, and the flash animation of everything else (the movies, the custom art) to be output on another monitor.

 

Can this be done?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

by the looks of the post made here - it seems like if the canvas is made to be 1080H x 3840W (2 x 1920), and the wheel and any 'foreground' elements (such as the "Press Start" and the wiggling joystick that says "Next System" or "Next Game") were positioned over to the clean side, it could work.

 

My build has a 'peppers ghost' which puts a Heads-up-display close to the player and has the main action in the BG. The player can literally look 'around' the HUD - true 3D. It's quite beautiful.

 

Currently the system is being used to accommodate the game it was built for, but it would be brillant if used with hyperspin in this way.

 

Is the source flash project available so I could try a build myself?

Thank you for your reply. My small team has created a design for an arcade machine (and constructed it) that contains two monitors - one that 'floats' over the other (peppers ghost).

 

While it was built for a specific game (which we wrote) that supports this setup, the machine could also easily hold the hyperspin frontend and so we would be very happy to include it.

 

But rather than going to the trouble of rebuilding the flash for just a single machine - know that our goal is to put this machine up on kickstarter in an effort to make many. Having the custom Hyperspin build would be an added bonus.

 

Is there any way I could have BadBoyBill or someone on the staff help us with this alteration?

      I am searching for a square/4:3 monitor that would fit my arcade cabinet. Which is about 25"x25". I am guessing around a 24" monitor/tv would fit.
      An company or site, monitor or TV, hell I would even consider a CRT!
      Thanks in advance!!

      *** THIS FILE IS AVAILABLE TO HYPERSPIN PLATINUM SUBSCRIBERS ONLY ***
      Dear HyperSpin friends,
      I've put together a package of sorts, aimed at HyperSpin newcomers and veterans alike.
      I've been continuously grooming a custom "best of MAME" database, bezel set, and MAME ini file set for quite a while now. My goal is to provide something that someone can drop into a fresh setup or custom wheel and be up and running right away. I intend to release updates to the individual downloads on a periodic basis, so check the change logs for more information going forward.
      The package is split into three parts, as follows. Put together, these downloads will have results as shown in the screenshots.
      HyperSpin MAME.xml database (Link) Corresponding RocketLauncher bezel set (Link) MAME ini files (THIS DOWNLOAD, see below for details) File information:
      This download contains a set of ini files to be used with MAME. You must have MAME installed in order to used this pack. HLSL is used and pre-configured for both horizontal and vertical raster games, vector games are not set to use any shaders and have their own display tweaks within the vector.ini file. Several other custom ini files are included for specific games.
      Info/caveats:
      The version number of this pack corresponds to the version of MAME used Configured for 1920x1080; if you're running something higher resolution, you'll need to change those lines in the ini files - see the HLSL section You'll need to edit the ini files to point to your own ROM folder (mine is C:\Arcade\ROMs\MAME, for example) - near the top Install instructions:
      Download files Extract files into your \MAME\ini folder, overwriting anything there Edit the ini files to point to your ROM folder Enjoy!
