  1. after 1 year here is my conclusion I decided to test launchbox and arc browser launchbox is limited to 100 roms in free version, if you want more i think it's 50$ for android version and 75$ for pc version. exaggerated prices I find not to reach the level of a free hyperspin. Arc browser uses a database instead of xml and its scrapping engine is not 100% ready and you will have to manually do all the roms that it will not have succeeded in identifying. Compared to the hyperspin wheel system which gives flexibility, here there is no flexibility, just the rigidity of a database. In addition, the system themes are just mp4 files, a pale copy of the hyperspin themes, so customization is not possible yourself compared to hyperspin, which offers hypertheme with which you can modify any theme at will or create one from scratch with disconcerting ease. I'm not even talking about themes for games that don't exist Compared to hyperspin there is a gap especially when you think of all the themes for arcade games. I hadn't realized it until now but hyperspin is by far the best front end, it's free and in addition it allows to have a common hyperspin system for windows and android machines on a shared nas. and for me downgrading shield tv is a bad idea, an outdated system cannot survive, it must be kept up to date. It's a very bad choice. So my conclusion is that this hyperspin SAF support update is absolutely necessary, because for me it will be hyperspin or nothing. @reznnate you are our only hope, please can you give us news on the progress on the SAF support Happy new year to you and all hyperspin guys

  3. I reported the thing some years ago, honestly I dont' know if it is a problem related to my softwares combination or whatever but I have the same problem on multiple machines. The problem is really simple: HS uses a truckload of CPU when it's hidden and an emulator is running. In this case I'm pushing a bit the things using a 1080p 120frames to loop the background (the file inside the theme loads a swf in dark13 folder as background swf inside a theme does not loop) but this happens also using a 1080p png inside a swf, you'll notice it on weak rigs. The situation is far from being ideal... Around 30% of an intel 4460 cpu time wasted in this case. Basically in these conditions you have to dedicate 2 cores/threads of your CPU to HS. Fun enough this happens also if I use code to remove the swf from stage or when I load it as a movieclip and stop it when HS goes off focus. This is simply crazy. HS is using cpu time to move stuff that is not even on stage or it is stopped. Well, I need more tests but I've found a simple workaround... Now cpu is just at 2% when HS is hidden and an emulator is running. The trick is really simple: you can set stage property from any swf on stage so I just used this code on an empty Artwork1 layer inside the theme. The swf can be used too on SpecialA1 layer stage.addEventListener( Event.DEACTIVATE, deactivateCb, false, 0, true ); stage.addEventListener( Event.ACTIVATE, activateCb, false, 0, true ); function deactivateCb(e:Event):void{ stage.frameRate = 1 } function activateCb(e:Event):void{ stage.frameRate = 60 } HS is using cpu time to move stuff and I can't prevent it to doing this so I just set the framerate of the stage to 1fps (0.1fps seems ok too) when HS goes off focus and set it back to 60fps when HS gain focus. Pushing stuff at 1fps requires very few cpu power. I know that BBB is not working on the thing but I also know that some people of the staff has the code and can compile a new version. Can a workaround like this be integrated in HS? Test Theme: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AlvG-_GLw_qahBJa7zOErF3qUveD?e=Y8J8kw There's no relative path code, so HyperSpin.exe MUST be in C:\HyperSpin_1.5.1 folder and you need to put dark13 folder inside it.
