Does anyone else find it impossible to make any changes once you have HS loaded up and running on ShieldTV?

as I experiment with media files and find mistakes like wrong file names I always feel like I have to start with a fresh install to see my changes take effect.

i want to make a simple setup with only NES, SNES, N64, and GENESIS. Can I just delete all files that are associated with all the other systems inclusive of media, ini, xml, cores etc?  I tried to do this and the app crashes after intro video. 

 

Thanks for the help looking forward to being involved in this community/project.

No. Only thing to do is if you remove items that use XML then you must redo XML.

I have only had minimal crashes with HS and usually after I have been messing with other things and or renaming my Hyperspin folder or using different ones. Also I have seen more instability from many apps after the latest shield update.

But your issue with removing systems should not be one.

dont delete any single folders from systems or the man in menu stuff (Videos for example)

you can always just remove the entries from the main menu.xml database if space is not a concern.

dont really want to be deleting any folders in Media/Main Menu or Media/Front End just in needed video or image files and theme zips maybe.

the key database folder in Main Menu and there are a couple of settings files you don't want to delete either settings.ini

main menu.ini cat think of others right now.

When I was still getting used to the identical rename rule with Roma and xml files I had a few Roma that I needed to change the name for since they where not launching.  I would change the name with ESFE but it wouldn't fix the problem.  I would end up back on my PC rewriting the name and reinstalling lol. 

Im going to try you recommendation for slimming down the build. Space really isn't an issue I just don't want the other stuff there (on the wheels) if I'm not using it.

Yeah you got to be carful with the renaming and databases. Best to use Don's renamer on PC for that stuff.

if space is no biggie just delete the systems out of the main menu.xml. Easier and if you want a system back in the future it's there ready for you

I loaded Hyperspin and was blown away by the beauty!!!  I created a couple test folders (NES, SNES, Sega Genesis) with 2 or 3 moms in each folder.  When I select the system from the wheel and scroll through to the ROM that I have, I get an error message : Trying to load a missing ROM.  I renamed the ROMS in Don's tool prior to installation.  The .ini file for NES has a ROM path of Emulators/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms, exactly where they are located in .nes format.  I even tried adding Hyperspin/ to the beginning of the path to see if that would make a difference and they technically are in the Hyperspin folder.  Any suggestions?  I'm at a standstill!!!

      As we celebrate 25 years of DOOM! John Romero has brought us SIGIL, an unofficial 5th chapter to the original game. So as Retroarch's Prboom core has now been updated to support it...figured I should really add it to my Doom Classics wheel...
      Threw together a Sigil theme, wheel art and video snap. I was pleasantly surprised, that the prboom core now played the midi music natively. Doom 1&2 originally required me to add the music tracks as mp3 files.

      (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.
