Hi guys! I recently finished my newest project and thought I would share it. If I can figure out how to upload photos here  I will do that too.

 

 

As with most MAME projects, the majority of the time is in the software. We had a difficult time getting both guns to work in MAME, and after pulling our hair out for a couple of days we found a thread mentioning that dual light gun support is broken in the newest version. We got an older version and BOOM. 

There is still some software work a head. I have not tried to tackle dual light guns in M2. I may not bother. 

 

I used the Ultimarc AimTrak guns. They had the best reviews in my research. They function very well. While it is impossible to get them optimized perfectly for every game, after some long hours in the individual game calibrations, I have the happiest medium I think I will find. Some games work much better (and more accurately) than others. 

For example the hunting games are dead center at the middle of the screen, but end up about 2" off at the sides. I don't know if there is anyway to correct for that. Also some games play better at different distances. Overall, I am very please with it. There are probably a handful of games that play terrific, and the rest have their issues. 

 

We used 2 nanoLED USB controllers and LEDBlinky to automate.

 

The holsters are 3D printed.

 

The original speakers are being used along with a super cheap 5W amp and a 100W yamaha subwoofer. 

 

We used a Windows 7 PC. I hate the load times, but sadly the aimtraks only work with windows.

      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!

      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 (THIS DOWNLOAD, see below for details) Corresponding RocketLauncher bezel set (Link) MAME ini files (Link) File information:
      This download contains a custom "best of MAME" HyperSpin XML database. It contains both standard ROM-based games as well as some CHD-based games. It may be copied over an existing MAME.xml file and run against a full romset to achieve a pared down result.
      The database was developed for a 2-player cabinet with standard orientation, 8-way joysticks and six buttons per player. There is no trackball or spinner on the control panel. So that being said, following are the requirements kept in mind as I develop it:
      Top 350-ish working MAME arcade games (totally subjective, of course) Based on official HS MAME database I'm in the US and think the US loading screens are cool, so I've included most US clones instead of parent ROMs (exception being where parent version is much preferred) 2-player clones of 3+ player games are included instead of parents (ex: TMNT and X-Men) No driving, spinner, dial, trackball, analog, or really custom control games (apologies to many great games) Install instructions:
      Download file Make a backup of your existing MAME.xml Copy file into your \HyperSpin\Databases\MAME folder, and rename it to MAME.xml List of included games (by ROM name):

      HyperSpin MAME.xml database (Link) Corresponding RocketLauncher bezel set (THIS DOWNLOAD, see below for details) MAME ini files (Link) File information:
      This download contains a set of RocketLauncher bezels which match the "best of MAME" XML database referenced above. Not every game has a bezel yet, but progress continues either by myself or other artists in the community. All credit is due to the original artists and all file names should contain bezel creator names. I've merely gone through what's available, selected my personal favorites, renamed them to match ROMs, and included them here. Or I've created or modified (with permission/credit) them myself.
      Info/caveats:
      The version number of this pack corresponds to the percentage of Bezel coverage to the "best of" database mentioned above (ex: if 50% of games have bezels, the version number will be 0.50) Entire pack is split into three zip files to meet the site's file size restrictions All bezels are 16x9, and at least 1920x1080 For each game with bezels available I've picked my favorite and included it A default bezel is included for those games without coverage Bezel folder names match ROM names in the "best of" database (important for clones) Install instructions:
      Download files Extract compressed folders into your \RocketLauncher\Media\Bezels\MAME folder Assuming you've got bezels enabled in RocketLauncher... Enjoy!
