I just wanted to chime in to mention the way I had open BOR working by mapping player 2 controls to keyboard keys. Here is a link to the thread:

http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/index.php?/topic/26643-Openbor

I ended up using a root method using sixaxis controller. I did manage to get it working with a non root app, I just can't remember exactly what I did.

Formatted my shield shortly after and never messed with it any after that.

So after this...... Mugen?!? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you! Yes I had seen that a while back, however I refuse to root my Shield TV. If I keep it as stock as possible my friends can easily "emulate" (pun intended) what I have done with my box.

I was actually looking into Mugen. I saw Pouteur was starting out on OpenBOR so chimed in to help him out, then Thatman84 took up the mantle to move things along. I was trying to use Exagear to run Windows software on Android to do Mugen BUT the app doesn't seem to be compatible on the Shield TV. Pity as I would have enjoy playing Diablo 2 and a few other PC games on the Shield TV too.

Also I know nothing about MUGEN other than being another similar 2D engine 

Google turns up the paintown app as an alternative. Guessing some of the games are converted for it maybe

Hey Guys!

I'm back after a century of hell to drop my info! lol

So i was able to get DOS Mugen  to work with Doxbox Turbo and custom editing the cycles over 100000 to make it playable, but it has weird slowdown issues sometimes.

Also DOS Mugen games are either broken to the sky or extremely hard to find. I only had a few demos running.

But its mugen on android.

I spoke to the Paintown devs a year or so back, they were working on a new version that would let you use 1.0 and pre 1.0 builds of mugen but i haven't seen anything since, and its basically broken on current Android devices.

Hey fella's, been a while!   @thatman84 Congrats on the shiny new admin badge!  I've been away from the scene for a while. Just life in general. Read the occasional update on Tapatalk, but after I removed Tapatalk (for creating & signing me up to their forum chatrooms without my consent), I didn't get those updates anymore.    Back in December I got to researching Raspberry Pi and mini console cases, and was impressed with what it was capable of.  Once I got to setting up RetroPie, well, you know how it goes.........

Which brings me back to here.  I have been messing around with OpenBOR on the Raspberry Pi.  (More than one controller is recognized!) The user darknoir created a Command Line Interface to directly load a OpenBOR game (aka mod).  I am not going to get into the whole story of the progress but you can read it over here (tutorial-openbor-the-complete-guide) or here (openbor-6xxx-openbeta-testphase). You will even get some insight as to the resentment thatman felt over on Chrono Crash forums.

With that said, we now have OpenBOR 3400 with CLI &  .pak support (unsupported version - explanations in posts in the links above), as well as the latest (still unsupported, but duly noted) compiled from source, and patched with CLI, and OpenGL support (GL4ES for emulation station).  All mods can be individually loaded from command line.   I believe it may be possible to carry over those patches to the android version, but I'm no expert.

Since we were previously confined to OpenBOR 3400 version, I went through approximately 200 games, seeing which ones worked on OpenBOR v3400. (OpenBOR is very version specific - backwards compatibility is only by chance).  With the latest release, between the two versions nearly every mod is playable.  Darknoir has taking my list a step further by creating a comprehensive list including file size, play status (working, not working, crash logs, and even personal opinions of the game), CRC, aspect ratio, players.     I think OpenBOR compatibility is due for a major overhaul, and along with that, an updated database and appropriate artwork/metadata.

Since the mods are so version specific, we figured an appropriate naming convention would be like this:

GAME NAME [v0.0] [build version]

Example:  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Shell Shocked [Rev. 5853][v.3.0 Build 4394]

Darknoir had already started creating metadata, logo's, screen shots, boxart, and video's.  Here's a couple box art created by darknoir

1539271884340-streest-of-rage-zombie-ver.2.1-2017-v.3.0-build-4153.jpg.b95135b3065abc62d5649db453e5f58d.jpg:1539271898180-avengers-united-battle-force-ver.2.7.4-v.3.0-build-4432.jpg.ca4cc1f017bafe0d2fec7eece3652e14.jpg1539271875445-street-of-rage-2x-ver.1.4-lite-v.3.0-build-6330.jpg.4dab29fba03f1f634695ef7ef7c8878f.jpg

@Circo I would like to recommend a long overdue overhaul to OpenBOR. I volunteer to take on the task of recording videos to your latest standard.  

@THK @Metalzoic @Rain @relic @KlopjerO @Kondorito @BunglesI also would like to shine the HS Content Creator spotlight in the air to anyone that would be interested. Hyperspin has some of the most talented content creators, and absolutely the most dedicated! Hyperspin, and the talented artists involved created a new era of front end, helping to pave the way for this "retro revolution" we are seeing!  (I entered the arcade scene starting to set up Mame Wah!, when I came across HS beta!)

Thank you!

Here are the games I have personally gone through, which will painstakingly get a proper rename: pastebin - OpenBOR Games List

Thanks for your message @BiZzAr721 :)
You only write a mistake, like we can see on your compatibility list, on PI we have two OpenBOR version, one for the old games, 3400 and one of the last build for the newest games the 6315 ;)

My list in development is here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1h2c9Aa_s6rGUejR0AiZgx29byNBWBReW5PK30bZcago/edit?usp=sharing

Like he write, i search for help for this part of my project ...
I know i will do it, i already do it for 3DO, Daphne, PCE-CD, a big part of the NES, JAGUAR, ... but it's long and on OpenBOR there is nothing for help, i must create all the stuff from scratch 😛
You can found my mail on GIT, on write me on Google Docs :)

Thanks every one for your work here, some time i have use a part of it and it same me many days of work ❤️
You are one of the best community ever !!!

Hi chaps,

its great to see some OpenBOR work going on and fingers crossed someone can update the android app to include the cli launching feature.

I am in between setups right now as lots of DIY on the go.

I had an ask about and it seems the thread below is this communities best offering into OpenBOR games lost setups. It was done in 2014 so not sure how much help it would be.

If you want to get setup over here for projects like artwork and things I would suggest making a thread in the relevant sub forums. There are not many artwork creators about right now but it’s the best way to find them

good luck and please keep us updated if your work completes away from the forum.

I finally created an official OpenBOR thread here. I'm hoping there is enough interest to really get the ball rolling. Many users have created media / videos, but they are so scattered throughout the web.

      Hi all, It seems retroarch (at least on android) has removed their Mupen64plus core and replaced it with Mupen64plus-next. My hyperspin (Nvidia shield) won't launch N64 games anymore because it's trying to launch a core that no longer exist. I have tried editing my "Nintendo 64.ini" file with multiple variations to get the new core to launch, but I cannot get it to work. Anyone know the new core parameters off hand? I've searched quite a bit and am coming up empty.  Just to clarify I'm looking for the "Parameters =" line under the exe= that determines which core retro arch will use. I have confirmed manually loading the "Mupen64Plus-Next" core works with content. I just can't seem to get the command line correct to have it launch from hyperspin. Any help is appreciated thanks! I have already switched to it launching "Mupen64 FZ" in the meantime, but I prefer the launch coming from retroarch because FZ resumes mid-game where you left off when starting from hyperspin, and I prefer the WOW factor of games loading from the title screen.

      I realise there is already a thread for the Commodore Amiga in the Android section. I should know, as of late I've essentially taken it over! It's one of the most viewed threads in the Android section, so clearly many of you adore the Amiga as much as I do. 
      That thread has become quite long and it's quite confusing with people choosing to emulate the Amiga in different ways. I decided it would be best to start my own thread, streamlining it to show the best way to get this done. As I do have a "proof of concept" setup working! 
      This project I've taken on is a mammoth undertaking, as the Amiga is quite a complicated system to do. I'll try to explain why and how I've decided to proceed, keeping you guys up to speed with my progress here. 
      The first real issue is the naming that Hyperspin has been using for some time now. It's based from the Whdload zip file names, which was a logical choice BUT the problem is these zip names keep changing over time as they get updated. This throws the database entries and all media assets out of whack. It's my belief that this naming is what is really holding us back doing the Amiga justice.
      Second problem for us Android users anyway, is that we can't use the zip files directly with an emulator. They needed to be extracted out and we used a bootloader to patch the files for the emulator and launch the games. All seemed well and good until I started testing games and found many wouldn't work. Very confusing as the same game files worked fine from a workbench environment I'd set up, with it's own bootloader I added in. I suspected it was the "ultimate amiga" bootloader for the Hyperspin wheel at fault, which proved to be correct. 
      So the best way to launch these Amiga games from the Hyperspin wheel, is to actually use HDF versions of the games. This removes the need for the bootloader. I decided to keep the game folders extracted from the whdload zip files. Continuing to use these with the workbench (Amiga's OS) hdf I created. Having this is a nice nostalgic nod, I'm sure genuine Amiga fans will appreciate. 
      Unfortunately we can't just point the emulator to these hdf files, it's not that simple. Each game requires a config file that points to where the particular hdf game file is, what kick-start (i.e Bios) to use, video settings, control bindings etc. These files are known as uae files, as that is the extension we tell Hyperspin to look for. We trick it into thinking these uae's are the actual "game Roms".
      Sadly uae files aren't universal between emulators. So choosing the right emulator to begin with is important. Many people had chosen to use RetroArch. Which can't do the CD32, so I'll strike it off for that reason alone (although there are other reasons). I spent a long time waiting on Amiberry to be ported to Android but the devs haven't delivered. I'm not waiting any longer, so I'm continuing to proceed with Uae4arm. 
      As I write this, the latest version of Uae4arm crashes on Android TV (i.e Shield TV) but does run fine on Android phones. The devs are aware and trying to resolve this. There is an older apk version we can install for now, which does work. Another slight annoyance is that Uae4arm is quite fussy about how the uae files are named. They can NOT have special characters in them (e.g a space) or the emulator won't launch them!
      My next complaint was that Hyperspin has "rules" about what games should be included in the xml database file. I do NOT agree with these "guidelines". I want a definitive collection of Amiga games. 
      I've decided to branch the Amiga out into different wheels, ECS, AGA and CD32. As an analogy think of Sega's Megadrive and it's hardware addons. Megadrive=ECS, Sega32X=AGA (better graphics chipset on later Amigas) and finally the MegaCD=CD32 (better audio track and FMV).
      There is a "HDF game set" floating around. However... I got to know the creator, from doing videos on my proof of concept setup. I've persuaded him to rename the files to something more sensible, that should help other frontends scrape for metadata and artwork. These names will not change over time as he updates the collection. He does release notes, so this info can be used to keep the xml database file up to date. Currently he's overhauling the hdf files so they take up less storage and even adding cheat and trainer options to the loading splash screen....very cool stuff!
      I'm working on creating missing artwork (wheel, 3D box, diskette and video snaps), keeping busy until this new hdf collection is complete. Then I can start creating the uae files needed. This will be laborious, as Uae4arm doesn't do cycle exact emulation. I need to make sure each game is configured correctly to run at the proper speed, I'll also bind commonly needed keyboard keys to the gamepad on a per game basis.
      If you're confused, that's OK! It should all make sense, once I get around to uploading some more videos. Yes I will make my assets available to you all (minus the games obviously due to Hyperspin rules), once I'm happy with the collection.

      Retroarch (Google Play) has updated itself to the latest version 1.7.8 and it seems to have broken compatibility with Hyperspin 😕

      Having done some quick reading (https://www.libretro.com/index.php/retroarch-1-7-8-important-changes-for-people-using-the-google-play-build/) it seems under the "infinite wisdom" of Google. They're forced to build in both 32 and 64bit support for the app, so the device (Shield TV) will default to using the 64bit version as it is a 64bit device. I'm not entirely sure what's gone wrong as I haven't had time to delve further into it, although I know ZeroJay did a modded Hyperspin apk for 64bit support (that doesn't work either). Just wanted to warn users so they don't update and have any aggro.

      You can still side load 32bit versions of Retroarch, I'll do that later and test. I'm actually quite excited about some of the features that have now come in the latest version.

      ***EDIT***

      The retroarch_ra32.apk (v1.7.8) changes the path (typical). So it's now "exe=com.retroarch32/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture". Hyperspin doesn't like this and it misbehaves as it did trying to load the original 64bit Google play version, which is why ZeroJay did the modified Hyperspin apk.

      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.

      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.
