    Ok guys been working on this for a while, thought I would put out the 1.0 while I've got the chance... ...Presenting genre backgrounds and wheels for MAME/Arcade! Here is a collection of wheels and backgrounds in the style of my SNES and Mega Drive/Genesis packs. Unlike those packs, there are no included xmls with this pack as I have spent hours hand sorting my genres in a specific and unique way that will not match the average user 1 to 1. Unfortunately what this means is you are going to have to get your hands a bit dirty this time to make this pack work for you, the backgrounds and wheels are provided and organised, but you are going to need to do some renaming in order to suite the images to your xml files. Also you may find there are certain publisher or specific genre wheels that don't have included backgrounds or wheels here. The good news is there is a large selection to find something appropriate to complete your own setup, there are multiple images for just about every genre and I HEAVILY ENCOURAGE you to go through and rename the images you like, rather than the defaults I have selected. If your not sure what is involved in setting this up check out @ninja2bceen 's excellent tutorial video on genres. I take no credit for any of the background images, i've merely edited existing images that are out there to suit. I have created a few of the wheels from scratch, and given some existing ones a face-lift. There's a fair few hours of work here and I hope it shows. When I have some time there is a chance I will come back to this to increase it's scope and rename the images to match the standard naming conventions so it can be a little bit more plug and play. As usual i've included the default image for the border so as people can create their own backgrounds. I've also included my genre.xml which is unlikely to suit you directly but might help as a starting point. If anything seems incorrect, or you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments. Enjoy! A few resources: Check this thread for links to phulsofs xml packs. --------------------------------------------------- Check this great tutorial for using Romlister to create your own genres: https://forums.libretro.com/t/howto-generate-pretty-curated-mame-playlists-the-easy-ish-way/5529 --------------------------------------------------- Here is @SupraKarma's Mame pack, it contains wheels for all occasions and was the base for this pack, anything not included here you should find there. Also check here for the 'Base pack' It may be more recent and complete I'm not sure. --------------------------------------------------- Here are my other genre packs for SNES and Mega drive/Genesis

    The wheel sounds packs I've found for various systems were much too quiet compared to the base sound pack. I've gone through and normalised them to increase decibels, while also reduced the default pack which I found comes in like a wrecking ball. Most of these packs I found on the ftp and were not available on the site anywhere when I looked a while ago, though that might have changed over time. The Playstation and Master System packs have been put together by me but I can't take credit for anything else aside from adjusting the decibels, there is a chance I hand edited a few of the other packs to remove some of the more annoying or less impactful sounds files. I've also included the default wheel click with reduced decibels in case anyone prefers it. Let me know if you think anything doesn't seem right. Enjoy! Here is another great tutorial from @ninja2bceen if you need some help installing these.

    --[ Purpose ]------------------------------------------------- Controls the order the controllers appear in the "Game Controllers" list in Windows. --[ Reason ]-------------------------------------------------- The order they appear in are used in some emulators and games to define the order they should be used. For example, the top one in the list is Joy1. Second one Joy2 etc. Problem here is threefold. 1: The list is not always the same after a restart so you have to remap all your controllers in the emulators that use this setup. 2: If you plug in another controller, it will (most of the time) not go to the end of the list but in the middle somewhere, messing up the order of the other controllers. 3: Even if everything is as you think it should be, your first joystick might be called Joy3 in the games/emulators and it just looks ugly =) --[ Usage ]--------------------------------------------------- Connect all the controllers that you want to have a permanent location in the list. Run "Tur-Game_Controller_Order.exe" as administrator and it will list all the controllers and ask you, one by one which location it should have in the list (basically, where you want it to appear. 1 = top) That will create a Settings.ini file. If that file exists the next time you run it, it will simply go through the controllers and reorder them, silently. Remove or rename Settings.ini to get it to run again. You can also create more then one Settings.ini file if you have different setups. Simply specify which .ini file it should work with when running it, for example "Tur-Game_Controller_Order.exe Settings2.ini" By default, when you run it with a Settings.ini present, it will just run once and exit, but you can have it running all the time, checking the order every few seconds or so. This is good if you have some controllers plugged in some of the time but want to be able to plug in others without them appearing in the middle of the list. Edit Settings.ini and change DaemonMode=False to True. DaemonModeDelay= is how many seconds to wait between each check. 5-10 seconds is a good value IMO. --[ Notes for BlissBox users ]-------------------------------- If you own a BlissBox you must update the firmware first so the ports get unique HIDs and names. See here: http://atarigalore.wix.com/4play They should appear as 4-Play_port1 to port4 (at least at the time of writing. As long as they are unique its OK.) --[ Limitations ]--------------------------------------------- One big limitation is this. Say you have 3 controllers connected that are Joy1, Joy2 and Joy3 in the emulators/games. If you unplug the first controller in the list (Joy1), the others will shift up and Joy2 will become Joy1 etc. There is no way around that at the moment, except for creating a dummy Joy1 controller to put at the top of the list. I have yet to figure that one out easely. Always keep your permanetly connected controllers at the top of the list to overcome this. --[ Other hints ]--------------------------------------------- You must set UAC to "Never Notify" if you want this program to run on startup automatically as its running as a local administrator. You also can not just make a shortcut to your Startup folder for it as windows will not allow it. In the "Extras" folder you'll find a small VBS script that just runs it from the same location as the exe, so copy the VBS to where you have Tur-Game_Controller_Order.exe and make a shortcut to the VBS file to your Startup folder in Windows. Any controllers connected that are NOT in the Settings.ini file when you run it will automatically go to the end of the list. I include a program called "List_Controllers.exe" as well. This only lists all the connected controllers and the HID for it. You can use this if you want to add a controller to an already existing Settings.ini file. Just copy the HID shown into Settings.ini. When manually editing Settings.ini, make sure the ports start with Port1, Port2 and there are no gaps in the numbering.

    I worked long and hard on this set. Over a year or more, little by little. Most of the carts were total redos. I made most of the cart templates myself from the best sources I could find. All carts are accurate (except prototypes which use custom labels). About 942 games total from the current 1.3 database. Some alternate versions included for some games. These are sized nice and big to use in Launchbox but will need to be resized for Hyperspin use. I included Photoshop templates for those that want to create their own cart art. Many popluar publisher logos and fonts included. Enjoy this set! I worked hard on this.
