    Entire Roadrunner PBFX3 theme set (up to Oct 29th 2019's release of Monster Bash and Black Lagoon) Sound files for startup/wheel/exit Pointer Wheel Art Databas Extras: Themes for some Zen Studio bundles Themes for PBFX3 in Main menu. Three options: (Marvel, ZEN, Star Wars) Note: Newer (and a few older) PBFX3 thems do not have the pbfx3/zen logos. This is by design as it looks cleaner this way. For most I converted over with the logos so that it would distinguish from the PBFX2 themes that are mostly identical. Credits: Theme/pointers and sound bundles by Roadrunner. Thanks to Gigapig for help on the database and loading everything up. Huge thanks to Kondorito for putting the SWF files together for the widescreen workaround. Without his work widescreen doesn't happen. Thanks also to Dark13 fot putting together the script in the first place.

    This is a combination of the official hyperlist xml, the 'official' thread that Tonesmalones and others contributed to, and work done by me. I'm trying to steer away from renaming 'ROM' names. It's a hassle for the entire community. At the end of the day the 'game name' or 'file name' is irrelevent, what displays in HyperSpin (currently, the description) is what matters. Big changes are coming with the way we do databases, but for now, I prefer to change the 'description' name only, unless the ROM name is particularly offensive to me (e.g. Sega Rally Championship 2 instead of Sega Rally 2: Sega Rally Championship. Also note that Tonesmalones made it a point to utilize semicolons in the descriptions. I agree with this, it looks more 'professional' like a movie title. Hyphens will still be used for games like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Fight for the Future, also in certain instances, like Resident Evil - Code: Veronica. What I'm trying to avoid is double instances of anything. It looks sloppy. Again, these changes are only in the description, the filenames will use hyphens for everything. I understand that the current consensus is to include 'everything playable,' even mahjong games that require you to navigate a Japanese menu to even play. I have mixed feelings on this. I didn't include stuff like this because I consider it culturally insignificant. If you take issue with this, speak up. But it's more work for everyone involved - it means someone has to make a 'Hentai Tentacle Master Gangbang Mahjong part 5' wheel, box art, video, etc. I have no desire for this kind of stuff in the official list, playable or not. Games that are either 'unplayable,' undumped, or 'culturally insignificant' have been exported to an 'exclude' list. The idea is, you can easily merge the official list and the exclude list, to have every game if you so desire. This should please everyone. If you're mad that a game wasn't included, well, there's the exclude list. Feel free to add it yourself. If you believe there have been errors made, and some Japanese games belong in the main list, by all means, bring it to my attention, we'll make it happen. Games have been checked for publisher and rating accuracy. The list is certifiably 96% accurate, there may be minor updates as I continue to work on my 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast' project. As always, if there are errors, feel free to bring them to my attention. We all want the same thing here - accurate data.

    You're scrolling through your awesome Sega Genesis collection in HyperSpin you spent many an hour scouring the internet to amass, and you stop on a game. Which one is it? Why, it's Spider-Man (World) (Sega). The box art that you downloaded clearly says "Sega." But the description above the game reads "Recreational Brainware." Recreational... Brainware?!? Who.... tf is that? So you scroll through some more games. John Madden Football. Everyone knows that's an EA Game... right? WRONG. The description says Park Place Productions. At that moment, did you feel like throwing a shoe at your TV screen? Did you get the urge to go through and fix the database to by hand, and fix every single entry, so that the name in the box is the name that appears in the description? No... that was just me, you say? Well, I did in fact change the database by hand, and it sucked. You're welcome. This database is not as accurate as my 'Gamecube' database thread that I started. I resorted to using the Wikipedia database, (because I didn't want to spend 3 days on this like I did with GC) which actually turned out to be decent. I randomly checked games, and occasionally found mistakes. But what I have here is far more accurate than what I started with. To be quite frank, the original didn't even get the developer right half the time. Putting together a database is a lot of work. Tedious, mind numbing, unpleasant work. Props to whoever made the original Official Sega Genesis database. It must have taken days, and any mistakes made are certainly forgivable. I certainly do not claim that what I am offering here is without error. But at the same time, I feel overwhelmingly compelled to express my opinion that nobody cares about the developer. The name on the box is what people remember. The *publisher* should be the standard for the manufacturer field in the database. If you agree, hit that like button after you're done downloading it. If I get enough support, I'll share more of them.

    I did some work on this database a while go, and I had big plans - I was going to have a 'players' field, a 'developer' field, and all kinds of other stuff. But I've scrapped that, because HyperSpin in it's current state can't even utilize any of these fields. Instead, I've opted to create custom XMLs. At the moment, I have a 'Two Players' and 'Multiplayer' XML finished - and they are quite accurate, as I compiled the data directly from the backs of the boxes, that clearlly state how many players the game has. Please note that this is for *english games only*. I found the Japanese games too frustrating to navigate menus, and I don't like compiling data from 3rd party sources, so that's that. Otherwise, hyphens have been replaced with colons in the description field. The manufacturer field now accurately reflects the name of the publisher. It makes no sense to have the name of some obscure, uncredited developer as the name in the description, when we have nice box arts that clearly tell you who published the game. The publisher should be the standard for all console/handheld systems, at least in this version of HyperSpin. An alternative of course is to put both - developer/publisher - and that's always an option. But at the least, the publisher should always be there. Prior to my work, this database was very flawed in respect to the manufacturer field. Sometimes the developer was used, sometimes the publisher was used, sometimes the data was completely wrong. Special thanks goes to JSinn for having a complete set of box backs for me to use to compile the data for the two player and multiplayer XMLs.

    So I was looking for a Wii development database thread in the forum. There wasn't one, but I found this from 6 months ago instead: "That Wii DB is a mess. Someone did a CTRL+H to replace all instances of the word "Racing" with "Driving" While all they had to do was change "<genre>Racing" with "<genre>Driving" Then circo took that faulty xml and made it "official" =___=!" I have zero plans to do anything special with this database. All I've done is correct the instances of 'driving' in the descriptions/game names, and replaced hyphens with colons in the description. I've made a development thread - if you want to contribute to this database, please do. I am not the keeper of these databases, I'm just a contributor. http://hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/34045-official-nintendo-wii-xml-database-thread/

    I've fact checked the entire database for accuracy of the <manufacturer> field, and this is the result. Five new games have been added. I've been given the ok to release this as official. List of some of the changes: Top Gear Rally - Publisher is Midway instead of Kemco Electro Brain changed to Electro Brain Corp (as per their logo) Changed games released under 'Acclaim Sports' sub label instead of Acclaim Changed games released under Activision O2 (Tony Hawk Pro Skater Series) sub label instead of Activision Starshot - Space Circus Fever - box label says Infogrames Entertainment, changed to reflect that NBA Live 2000 - EA Sports instead of Konami Mindscape Inc. changed to Mindscape Entertainment (the label they used on this platform) F1 World Grand Prix II (Europe) - Changed publisher from Nintendo to Video System Diddy Kong Racing - Changed publisher from Nintendo to Rareware (says 'published by Rareware' right on the box) All games developed by Rare and published by Nintendo, changed from Nintendo to Rareware/Nintendo (because Rareware was a huge presence and deserves to be acknowledged) Changed Rare Ltd. to Rareware (as per their logo) All games published by Nintendo with the name of the developer on the box, changed to (developer)/Nintendo. Changed Donkey Kong 64 from Rare Ltd. to Rareware/Nintendo (was officially published by Nintendo, even though it has the Rareware logo) All instances of Ubisoft changed to Ubi Soft Entertainment (as per their logo during the N64 era) F1 Racing Championship changed from Ubisoft to Ubi Soft Entertainment/Video System (has both logos, Ubi Soft Entertainment developed the game and published it in Japan, while Video System published it in Europe) UFO Interactive changed to UFO, as per their logo (I don't like unnecessary additions like "Co." and "Inc.", these things should only be added if the company used it in their logo during the era of the platform) Finally, I added 5 games. I went through romhacking.org's N64 translations section, and added four of the games that are playable. The other two I couldn't get to work, and if I can't, I doubt anyone else can. The four games are: 1. Bomberman 64 (Japan) (Translated En) - Japan got an exclusive 'Bomberman' title that was released in 2001, which is different from the 'Baku Bomberman' (Bomberman 64 in the USA). Translation works great in Retroarch/Parallel core. 2. Chameleon Twist (Japan) (Translated En) - Japan got a superior version of this game, and someone translated it. Has extra features not in the USA version. Works with RetroArch/Parallel core. 3. Densha de Go! 64 (Japan) (Translated En) - A train simulator. Works in Project 64 only, and you have to fiddle with some emulation settings to make it work (game conifg, change from recompiler to interpreter) 4. Wonder Project J2 - Josette of the Corlo Forest (Japan) (Translated En) - This game has some weirdness. After the initial story fades out, the game actually seems to freeze. There's nothing you can do except reset or end the emulation. But when you go to play the game again, your file will be there, and when you load it, the game will start. I don't know if this is perhaps the way it is on real hardware. But regardless, the game is working and playable. 5. Tetris 64 (Japan) (En) - This game is fully in English without having to patch anything. It is published by Seta and is different from any of the USA Tetris games. I added CRCs to all the new games I added.

    Does it drive you crazy that the official database uses the 'developer' as the manufacturer data some of the time, and then the publisher other times? Do you like accurate data, free of mistakes and typos? Do you like consistency? Do you like the idea of someone sitting down with the official Sega Saturn database, and spending 2 days doing research, making sure that the manufacturer data reflects not the developer, not the distributor, but the publisher? Well look no further, this is that database. The manufacturer field is the *only* thing changed from the official database. 9 times out of 10, the publisher will match the name on the box. However, there were some oddities with this particular system. For example: 1. Quake has 'id Software' on the box, but was published by Sega. I debated putting 'id Software/Sega' as the manufacturer but decided on Sega. 2. Some games, the publishers didn't bother to put their logos on. (VR Soccer, VR Golf '97). One could easily come to the conclusion that Sega in fact published the games, but did not. 3. Three very well known Capcom games, "Mega Man X3," "Street Fighter - The Movie" and "X-Men - Children of the Atom" were published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Acclaim Entertainment Inc., and Acclaim Entertainment Inc., respectively. But it didn't sit well with me, putting those companies in the description, so I solved this little dilemma by putting "Capcom/Virgin Interactive Entertainment", and "Capcom/Acclaim Entertainment, Inc." This is one of those instances where a judgement needed to be made on whether to make things 'black and white.' Capcom published the games originally, and the games are well known Capcom games. So I made it a point to make mention of them in the 'manufacturer' field. I do not mean to step on anyone's toes by releasing this or any other database. Database work is thankless, tedious work, and I'm guessing that most of the official databases were done by just a few people. If I were personally doing 30+ systems, I wouldn't be spending a whole lot of time researching and fact checking. But since this particular system (and the few other databases I've re-done) is important to me, I decided to put in the extra effort. The 'official' HyperSpin artwork standards are very high. So are mine, when it comes to fact checking. I would not be making this available for download if I was not willing to stand behind it, and make the claim that the manufacturer field is ~ 98% accurate, and substantially more accurate than the original that I altered. The original used the developer most of the time, but was not consistent, and would occasionally use the publisher instead. And, it had a lot of errors. So I consider this to be a substantial improvement, and I'm betting you will too, especially if you believe, as I do, that the publisher - the name on the box - should be the standard for the 'manufacturer' data.

    Hi, This database includes 87 games for Japan only N64. I used Wikipedia and a 4 year old HS post by Keith_Loving to put this list together. I included English translations for some of the games. I will upload my themes too. I hope you enjoy.
