This is a Vecor special media pack to replace HyperSpin original "Specials" & "Menu" medias, with improved quality.
It's made to exactly replicate the original style, but with a much improved quality (vector and aspect ratio)
Updated content is:
Footer animations (Next/Prev Game, Press Start, Free Play), for Main menu as well as for all Game Systems (Next, Previous, Forward, Backward) Those are the .swf files under images/special folders of Main menu & Systems Exit and Favorites menu (Background, Texts and arrows) Those are the .png files under frontend/images/special Benefits are:
No jagged graphics Smoother animations Native Compatibility with all resolutions (4K included) Correct Aspect Ratio in 16/9 and 4/3 Smaller files How to Install:
Please copy Media folder corresponding to your screen aspect ratio (4/3 or 16/9) to your Media folder (for Main Menu and Frontend), and copy files under (FOR_SYSTEMS) to each Game System folder, You can execute the batch script under FOR_SYSTEMS to automatically copy game systems specials to all systems (to be done once archive copied to your HyperSpin folder) You also have to redo the copy every time you create a new system with HyperHQ, as HyperHQ create default arts which are not Vector Note:
.png files under /Frontend/ are .swf files renamed to .png, they cannot be open under an Image viewer Thank you
16/9 Before (Bitmap, stretched):
16/9 After (Vector, not stretched):

16/9 Before (Bitmap is stretched):
16/9 After (Vector is not stretched):
!!!PLEASE NOTE: THESE HAVE BEEN SWF SMOOTHED THEN RENAMED TO .PNG, SO THE FILES CANNOT BE OPENED TO VIEW THE IMAGES OUTSIDE OF HYPERSPIN. THIS IS NORMAL AND THEY WORK WITHIN THE FRONTEND JUST FINE!!!
This is all of the /Media/Frontend/Image files resised, and HD smoothed for 16:9 displays. Screenshot above was taken in 4k and shows marked aesthetic improvement for widescreen over standard artwork. To install, simply extract the download into your :/HyperSpin/Media/Frontend/Images folder and overwrite or backup the original files.
I've been searching to see if people share their MAME HS txt favorites list but can't anything. I want to create a favorites list but was hoping I could grab a decent list that someone already has going as a start. Is there some place that I am missing where people share the HS favorites text file? Anyone want to share their list?
