Hey I attached a picture to the above comment^ and yeah, oddly enough all the emulators are there. Is there a way to point hyper launch to that file?

My modules are all there, [ATTACH=CONFIG]36415[/ATTACH]just not my emulators

Yeah that one that says Global Emulators.ini in your image is actually named Global Emulators.ini.ini so Polemicist is still right and you still messed up step 16.

Hint: Click on the Organize label in windows explorer and then click on folder and search options. This should open a window. Click on the View tab, and make sure Hide extensions for known file types is NOT checked.

Systems: Atari XEGS, Atari 8-Bit, Atari 5200

Status: Active

Basic Setup

1.) Download the latest version of the Atari800 emulator from it's sourceforge page.

2.) Create a new folder in your emulators folder (C:\HyperSpin\Emulators) named Atari800. C:\HyperSpin\Emulators\Atari800

3.) In your new Atari800 folder create a version folder the latest version at the time of this writing is v3.0.0 . C:\HyperSpin\Emulators\Atari800\v3.0.0

4.) Extract the contents of your download to the new version folder the path to your exe is now C:\HyperSpin\HyperLaunch\Atari800\v3.0.0\atari800.exe

5.) Now manually start your emulator by clicking on the exe. You should get a screen asking for a real Atari/OS. Enter the UI by pressing F1. ESC is used to return to the previous screen.

6.) On this menu go to Emulator Configuration and make sure you set Save Configuration on Exit to Yes otherwise your settings won't save.

7.) Create a new folder in the same directory as atari800.exe called rom. This is where you will put your bios files. (I am not allowed by this site's terms to post links to these bios files)

8.) For the Atari 5200 bios name it 5200.ROM C:\HyperSpin\HyperLaunch\Atari800\v3.0.0\roms\5200.ROM

9.) For the Atari XL bios name it ATARIXL.ROM C:\HyperSpin\HyperLaunch\Atari800\v3.0.0\roms\ATARIXL.ROM

10.) For the BASIC bios name it ATARIBAS.ROM C:\HyperSpin\HyperLaunch\Atari800\v3.0.0\roms\ATARIBAS.ROM

11.) Once you have completed steps 7-10 open the emulator, press F1 to bring up the configuration menu, and go to Emulator Configuration.

12.) Choose System Rom Settings in the same menu where you set Save Configuration on Exit in step 6.

13.) If you did steps 7-10 correctly you can choose Find ROM images in a directory (C:\HyperSpin\HyperLaunch\Atari800\v3.0.0\roms) and the emulator will add the bios files for you. If not you will have to point to each one using the Atari800 menu.

14.) Now we need to setup the emulator for HyperLaunch. Open HyperLaunchHQ, Highlight Global in the systems panel and then click on the big tab emulators. Find Atari800 in this list and double click on it. Now set your path to atari800.exe and fill in the rest of the settings

post-57601-142870614986_thumb.jpg

15.) Now highlight your respective system in the system panel. Click on the big tab Emulators and then add the path to your roms to the rom paths field. You can do this by clicking on the smaller green plus button to the right of the rom paths field.

16.) Now set Atari800 as your default emulator by clicking on the magnifying glass to the right of the default emulator field and selecting Atari800 [Global] in the popup window.

17.) Don't forget that you can edit module settings by highlighting the AAE module in the modules tab and clicking either the edit global module settings button or the system specific module settings button.

Notes

You will need to specify the cart type for some games and you can do this with in HLHQ with the SYSTEM SPECIFIC module settings, it's right next to the global module settings button. If you don't know where either button please refer to this page. The games that need this specification are headerless roms. Also you can not have your roms zipped or compressed because atari800 does not natively read zipped files or any other compression. You will need to use HL's 7zip feature if you want to keep them compressed. When you load a 5200 rom HL will use a best guess as to what the cart type is, but you will still need to manually discern between the 16 kb roms. There are two types: one has one chip while the other has two chips.

FYI

I have not setup Atari800 for xegs or 8-bit yet. When I do that I'll finish the guide or link to an already done guide someone else made.

Thank you for your excellent guide.

I have just one small remark:

9.) But wait, you ain't done yet. Get back in your HyperSpin folder soldier. This time we are gonna do some manual ini editing :afraid:. Open your Settings folder in your HyperSpin folder C:\HyperSpin\Settings. Find the file named Settings.ini, open it in notepad. you should see at the top a line that reads [Main]. Right up under the [Main] line add Hyperlaunch_Path=C:\Hyperspin\HyperLaunch\.

I did a clean install today and this line was already in Settings.ini.

Just a small thing, but perhaps something to add to the guide :)

You mention r106 in your guide. I think this should be r109.

Edit: Nevermind. I see it is r106, although the link says r109. Sorry :facepalm:

Might need to update this:

25.) for the best hyperspin xml management and renaming applications use Don's HyperSpin Tools

Seems the site is down and EMB has retired.

Anyone have old (recent) copies they can send me?

For a quick summary of the xml databases read the HyperSpin doc page on it. You will also find an example of the main menu xml and how to add and remove new systems in the doc pages as well.

Common Syntax Errors
This is typically the culprit behind bad xmls. The other most common culprit in xml errors is unclosed tags. XML Syntax rules.
If these characters are included in a text value they need to be replaced. This basically means <node> text value</node> or <node attribute="text value" ></node>
 

code    char    definition         incorrect           correct
< 	< 	less than 	   x < y               x < y
> 	> 	greater than 	   y > x               y > x
& 	& 	ampersand 	   peas & carrots      peas & carrots
' 	' 	apostrophe 	   Mary's lamb         Mary's lamb
"	" 	quotation mark 	   cow said "moo"      cow said "moo"

 
If these below characters are in <game name="value" index="" image=""> they need to be replaced because they are invalid file name characters.
The invalid characters are \ / : * ? " < > |
Suggested course of action is to replace \ / : < > | with - and remove " * and ?

System Database Structure
Basic Structure

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<menu>
   <game name="game one" index="" image="">
      <description></description>
      <cloneof></cloneof>
      <crc></crc>
      <manufacturer></manufacturer>
      <year></year>
      <genre></genre>
      <rating></eating>
   </game>
   <game name="game two" index="" image="">
      <description></description>
      <cloneof></cloneof>
      <crc></crc>
      <manufacturer></manufacturer>
      <year></year>
      <genre></genre>
      <rating></rating>
   </game>
</menu>

Why is <?xml version="1.0"?> at the top?
This specifies what an xml parser should expect in the xml, that way it knows how to handle it. It is not technically required but it is good practice and highly recommended to include it at the top of every file. See xml encoding.

menu tag
THIS IS REQUIRED! the menu tag serves as the root element which is the required parent element to all the child elements (<game></game>). All HS xml game lists start with the menu tag <menu> and close with </menu>

game tag
This indicates a new item in your wheel. THIS IS REQUIRED!
name attribute (name="value")
The value of the name attribute is the unique identifier in the list. THIS VALUE IS REQUIRED! It also must be unique; no two game name attributes can be the same. This is what is normally called the database name and the name that is used for your rom names. When renaming files you rename them to match this value. For artwork to display it all must match this value. The official names of games loosely follow the No-Intro rules on naming games. This value is not displayed in HyperSpin or HyperLaunch Fade.
index attribute (index="value")
Used for letter jumping. Do not worry, it is not required if you want alphabetical jumping, because HS will auto generate alphabetical jump points for you. This value is only used if you have xml indexing turned on in HyperHQ under Wheel Settings->SystemName->Navigation/Themes - "Use XML Indexes". It is off by default. Leave this setting false unless you want to customize your own jumplist and use different jump points other than what HyperSpin generates using the alphabet. You would want to make your own indexed jumplist if you have things not in alphabetical order in your xml, for example you may want to put a sequel next to the original but when you do that it might mess up the jumplist. If the value is empty ("") HyperSpin will not add it to the jumplist points but if it is true ("true") it will be added to the jump points. Also if it is true, it requires that the image attribute is filled in.
image attribute (image="value")
File name (no extension) of the image to appear in the letter jump. Not required unless the index attribute is set to true. It's good practice to set it for each jump point in the xml. Like if it's the first game in the list to use the letter R you would set the image value to be image="r". Do NOT do it for all the games starting with the letter r just the first one. Images are to be found in the HyperSpin\Media\SystemName\Images\Letters directory.

description Tag
This is the easy to read name of the game. This is what is displayed in HyperSpin as the name of your game. because this is the displayed name most people like to sort their lists by this value. If this tag is empty Hyperspin will display the game name attribute value instead.

cloneof Tag
The clone of tag requires you to use the same value as the parent's <game name="value" index="" image="">. This is normally only used for the arcade systems. This tag is used when two games are basically the same thing on the same system but differ in maybe name or revision number. For example pacman is a clone of puckman or Rev A of a game could be considered the clone of Rev B.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<menu>
   <game name="parent" index="" image="">
      <description></description>
      <cloneof></cloneof>
      <crc></crc>
      <manufacturer></manufacturer>
      <year></year>
      <genre></genre>
      <rating></eating>
   </game>
   <game name="clone" index="" image="">
      <description></description>
      <cloneof>parent</cloneof>
      <crc></crc>
      <manufacturer></manufacturer>
      <year></year>
      <genre></genre>
      <rating></rating>
   </game>
</menu>

crc Tag
This tag is not used by HyperSpin. You can leave this tag out and all will be fine. This tag is normally used by things like rom renamers and rom managers such as clrmamepro. crc stands for cyclic redundancy check. Its only use is for games that only use one rom file. There is a chance that your rom dump may not match up to the crc in HyperList. The crc's in HyperList are normally from projects like No-Intro or the MAME project. There are programs that generate crc tags for you but I haven't found one that's super-user friendly with HyperSpin that I can recommend. If you are searching for one use the phrase "crc calculator" and you will find lots of programs that can calculate a file's crc value. Because this tag is not used very often there is very little benefit to filling in this tag unless you plan on sharing your xml.

manufacturer Tag
The manufacturer tag, most of the time when looking up a game on the web you will see developer and publisher and not manufacturer. In this case use the developer name, if you can't find the developer name you can use the publisher name. This tag is displayed in HyperSpin, HyperLaunch Fade-in, and HyperPause and is useful with tools such as Don's tools for filtering and customizing lists.

year Tag
The year the game was released. Use the year matching the release version of your game. If it's the North American version use the North America release date, If it's the Japanese release use the Japanese release date, etc.

genre Tag
The genre value. It would be best just to give you a list of the accepted values you can use. Sadly you can only choose one from the list per game. Meaning you can't have Action/Adventure/Role-Playing in the info. This tag is not used by HyperSpin, but it can be use to generate genre xmls using tools like Don's List Splitter. This tag is used by HLHQ, HL fade, and HyperPause.

rating Tag
This is the parental rating information. This is not used by HyperSpin, but it is used in HyperLaunch's Fade and HyperPause. The planned HS 2.0 is also supposed to use this tag. This tag should always be included if you plan on sharing your xml as it will help others filter out what is appropriate for their setup using tools like Don's List Generator. Now for a quick explanation of the rating systems. AAMA is used for arcade machines. CERO is used to rate games released in Japan since 2002. ESRB is used to rate games released in the United States since 1994. PEGI is used by games released in Europe since 2003. HSRS (HyperSpin Rating System) is used by the Hyperspin community for games that do not have a rating either because they weren't rated by one of the supported ratings or because it was released before the rating systems were started. You will need to use your own discretion when assigning these.
These are the accepted rating values:

AAMA - Green (Suitable For All Ages)
AAMA - Red (Animated Violence Strong)
AAMA - Red (Language Strong)
AAMA - Red (Life Like Violence Strong)
AAMA - Red (Sexual Content Strong)
AAMA - Yellow (Animated Violence Mild)
AAMA - Yellow (Language Mild)
AAMA - Yellow (Life Like Violence Mild)
AAMA - Yellow (Sexual Content Mild)
CERO - A (All Ages)
CERO - B (Ages 12+)
CERO - C (Ages 15+)
CERO - D (Ages 17+)
CERO - Z (Ages 18+)
ESRB - AO (Adults Only)
ESRB - E (Everyone)
ESRB - E10+ (Everyone 10+)
ESRB - EC (Early Childhood)
ESRB - M (Mature)
ESRB - T (Teen)
HSRS - 17 (17+)
HSRS - AD (Adult)
HSRS - GA (General Audience)
HSRS - PG (Parental Guidance)
PEGI - 12 (Everyone 12+)
PEGI - 16 (Everyone 16+)
PEGI - 18 (Everyone 18+)
PEGI - 3 (Everyone 3+)
PEGI - 7 (Everyone 7+)

Genre Database Structure

First to answer what most of you want to know: the easiest way to create genre xmls for a system is to use the list splitter program found in Don's HyperSpin Tools. More info for this section will be written.

Programs used in managing/creating/editing the xmls
Don's HyperSpin Tools are made specifically for managing HyperSpin xmls, Some other good tools for xml creation and editing are Altova XmlSpy, Notepad++ and plugins, and XmlPad.

this is great, thank you!

I am brand new to this.

I was able to follow this guide and launch my mame (v.152) from hyperlaunchHQ.exe and hyperlaunch.exe to test games without issues :)

Aside from following the steps in this guide, I have done nothing else.

When I click on hyperspin.exe (in the hyperspin folder) it loads up, but when I scroll to MAME, there aren't any games listed.

can anyone lend a suggestion to why that is?

Edit: i have tried to search for a solution but to no avail (perhaps I'm using the wrong search words?)

Haku99,

How is your HyperHQ setup on the MAME wheel? Check that your Rom Path: is correct and in Extensions: you have zip

Also check the Navigation/Themes tab and make sure Themes Only and Wheels Only are not checked.

If this doesn't help, please post your ...\HyperSpin\Databases\MAME.ini

Thanks,

Ron

I attached a couple of pictures. As you can see in 3.jpg, there are no games listed on the right hand side. Again, i have done nothing but follow the steps in this guide, so I don't know if I need to configure more?!

my rom path is not the default folder (hence the different folder names)

also my mame.ini file isn't where you listed (HyperSpin\Databases), only .xml files exist here

my mame.ini file is (emulators\mame\v0.152\) folder.

below is the first few lines of my mame.ini (which should be correct):

#

# CORE CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

#

readconfig 1

writeconfig 0

#

# CORE SEARCH PATH OPTIONS

#

rompath e:\pleasuredome\mame roms

hashpath hash

samplepath samples

But the pictures will do.

And maybe reading (each word carefully) your first post. What happens when you scroll to MAME in the main menu and hit the Start key (Default is Enter, Mine is 1)?

Hey Ron

When I load up hyperspin.exe, scroll to MAME (using up/down keys on my keyboard) and press enter it takes me back out to the main wheel?

strange.

edit: actually, regardless of any emulator I scroll too (I only have setup MAME so far), pressing enter takes me back to the main wheel (ie: I scroll to SNES and press enter)

Hey Ron

When I load up hyperspin.exe, scroll to MAME (using up/down keys on my keyboard) and press enter it takes me back out to the main wheel?

strange.

edit: actually, regardless of any emulator I scroll too (I only have setup MAME so far), pressing enter takes me back to the main wheel (ie: I scroll to SNES and press enter)

Possible Causes:

You have a filter checked in HyperHQ under Wheel Settings -> Navigation/Themes.

Speakers not plugged in. (no systems work)

Missing the system xml

Xml is missing needed content

The most common filter that causes this issue is the rom filter. People seem to think that HyperHQ uses the same rom location info that you set in HyperLaunchHQ, but it doesn't due to HL separating it's settings from HyperSpin and the limitations of the settings in HyperHQ. If you must use this filter (I don't on any system), you will need to set your rom information in HyperHQ as well. (Note: HyperHQ is limited to one folder of roms only)

More users with this issue

It just won't go into the MAME Wheel games section

MAME game wheel not longer starts, PLEASE HELP!!

If this does not solve your issue please start a new thread with a descriptive title.

      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

      Hi,
      ich habe einen Wireless Xbox One Controller und 1einen Wireless "Bartop" Controller, ein "Hori Fighten Stick"
      Das Problem ist:
      Wenn nur der Xbox One Controller verbunden ist geht sein Analog Stick im HyperSpin Wheel (um hoch und runter zu gehen),aber wenn Hori Stick also der zweite verbunden ist geht nur der Hori Fighting Stick zum Hoch und runter gehen im HyperSpin Wheel. Die Buttons (also A, B ,... ) beim Xbox One Controller gehen aber trotzdem noch.
      Anmerkung: Der Hori Fighten Stick hat als Input für Up,Down,....POV
      Schon mal Danke im Voraus

      Hello guys,
      I'm working on a Tate build with Hyperspin for candy 15khz cab. 
      I made it for used with jammAsd or ipac2 or something who use a keyboard encoder.
      I was thinking to find solution for people who will used it with a 1player panel with 3buttons and start.
       
      Usually the keybinding is 
      Start p1 . 1
      Button 1 . Lctrl
      Button 2 . Lalt
      Button 3. Space
      Button 4 . Shift
       
      My trouble is hyperhq don't recognize the alt key. My thought was to ask rocketlauncher to use an AHK script to change lalt::k
      No problem, it works. If I start it manually, Hyperspin recognize my button2 (lalt) as a k.
      I change few thing in rocketlauncher asking it to use AHK I made under RL Hyperspin.ahk. I select external in settings, etc. 
      But its not working, I didn't see the script in my task bar ?
      As I used a lot of ahk keymapper for pc Games in this build I don't want to start it with hyperhq at the start of Hyperspin, maybe it will be the mess. 
       
      If you have any Idea, thanks guys ?
      If you want to have a look to the build

      This is my ICade mod using USB encoder for the joystick and buttons with a Dell micro PC in the back end with USB volume knob. Powered by Windows 10, Hyper-Spin, and Rocket-Launcher with Atari 2600, MAME, Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Genesis emulators and roms set up. The display is a 4:3 8 inch Neewar monitor which I purchased off of Amazon. I have acrylic glass behind my wooden bezel which I drilled out holes for monitor buttons in both the bezel and glass. All artwork was created by me in Photoshop and printed on adhesive vinyl. The marquee was made with the same acrylic glass and has an 8 inch LED glass enclosure with remote made for small fish aquariums I purchased off of Amazon as well. All wood paneling is MDF material and was cut and drilled via a Black and Decker drill with spade bits and a small Dremel band saw. I mostly used gorilla glue to piece everything together. I used Behr Marquee 2 in 1 primer and paint to paint the MDF material. The Hyper-Spin intro video was created by me using open source and free program Open Shot Video Editing. It took me roughly 2 months to complete from start to finish in between work and my family lol. I am so glad I did it though I am so pleased and happy with the outcome. A match made in Heaven! MY favorite band KISS (original members) and my favorite hobby retro arcade. I absolutely love it!

      Hi all.    very new to this, but a bit handy when it comes to building stuff. 
      A good friend of mine showed me his bartop machin that he was in the process of buillding and after looking at some of the games etc (running on pi) i was wowed.    decided to have a go myself as I was off work over xmas.....so it begins...
       
      Had a look around the web for the kind of machine I wanted to build but nithing really caught my eye so went with a standard kind of cabinet - no sizes or plans, just a little sketch on the back of a used envelope and away we go - only consideration I had to make was the screen size.   Popped to my local currys/pc world - had a look, wanted to have 4k - but whch size?  once its bought you cant go any bigger so I figured its all or nothing so picked up a 43" 4k LG smart tv. 
      Everything was build around it, so I only had to make sure the inside dimension of the cabinet was 40" had it all built and working in about 3 days - took another 5 days or so adding bits here and there...speakers and subwoofer, foot rail, hidden draw for keyboard /mouse etc.
       
      all worked out great - still learning config of hyperspin but will get there in the end
       
      Cant wait to build the MK2 now....
      video below  - compiled from pictures i took while maing the cabinet - all put together by apple iphone lol.  
      Jevs Arcade - youtube
       
      Taken this morning after fitting the footrail. pretty much finished now  hope you like!
