  1. Thanks, all working now. Also had issues with day of the Tentacle sound crackling, so just used the Mac sound file and all good now. I've spent so long fixing my Hyperspin I've not played any games. Time for a break from set ups. Will be back shortly to work on my next emulator. Any suggestions for tricky ones to look at, I like the challenge...
  2. Honosuseri, once again thank you! I was literally thinking (whilst munching on my sandwich at lunch, strange how this little project is taking over my free time!) about what I did on the Daphne emulator (using your video guide), where I had to put the actual path for the drive, rather than "path=H:\hyperspin\emulators\". Once I've got access to my device, I'll make the tweak.
  3. Yeah thanks, I've been doing that, just adding game by game to my xml as I decide to play them. Hsving a lot of fun with Speedball II at the moment. Forgot how addictive that game was.
  4. OK I'm still struggling with this. I fixed my Media issue, I just had to put sub-folders in all the Media folders for each game and move their files into it. The Wheel now works fine, but when I try to launch a game I get "warning trying to launch missing rom". By the way, these games all run directly in Retroarch when selecting the *.scummvm file. If I go through one game as an example, maybe that will show what I'm doing wrong? Let's take Curse of Monkey Island. I've got my Database file: ScummVM.xml as follows (using the folder/game structure as eplained in the guide): <?xml version="1.0"?> <menu> <header> <listname>ScummVM</listname> <lastlistupdate>05/07/2018</lastlistupdate> <listversion>2.0</listversion> <exporterversion>HyperList XML Exporter Version 1.3 Copywrite (c) 2009-2011 William Strong</exporterversion> </header> <game name="comi/comi" index="" image=""> <description>Curse of Monkey Island, The (CD Windows)</description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>LucasArts</manufacturer> <year>1997</year> <genre>Adventure</genre> <rating>Other - NR (Not Rated)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> My Settings file, ScummVM.ini set up as below: [exe info] path=H:\hyperspin\emulators\ScummVM\ rompath=Roms/ScummVM/ userompath=true exe=com.retroarch.ra32/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture romextension=scummvm Parameters=cores/scummvm_libretro_android.so searchsubfolders=true pcgame=false winstate=HIDDEN hyperlaunch=true [filters] parents_only=false themes_only=false wheels_only=false roms_only=false My Game image is located inside this folder: Hyperspin>Emulators>ScummVM>comi> Inside the "comi" folder, I have the comi.scummvm file, this has one line "comi" dark13, you comment, is this for Android? I can't see where I'd put this file. Do you have a guide or a quick link on what to do please?
  5. Hi all, hope someone can help me. I'm trying to set up Retroarch with the core ScummVM with Hyperspin. I followed this guide , but am stuck on a few points. 1. Where do I create my game folders? I put them in Hyperspin/Emulators/ScummVM/roms. Is this OK? 2. Where do the media folders go? E.g. Day of the Tentacle, do I put the media folder in Hyperspin/Media/tentacle? Or do I have a media folder inside the folder where I put my rom? 3. None of the media I've saved in the standard Media path currently shows up on the wheel, I'm assuming that's because the XML file has the "game/folder" structure in place, so fixing 2 will fix this? 4. I couldn't edit the settings in Retroarch for ScummVM (rom path etc) is this needed, or will the games launch anyway? They seem to work fine when I manually select the *.scummvm file 5. Finally this guide is pretty old, so is there a newer/better way to do this? Perhaps using the ScummVM apk instead of Retroarch? Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Does anyone have a complete Database.xml file for the Amiga that they could share please? I'm using Honosuseri's pack he kindly posted, but the database file seems to be split into favourites. Just wondered if anyone had this?
  7. Very excited to see this! Just tried the Retroarch core and managed to get a few of my favourite games playing, hoping it can handle multi disk games like Defender of the Crown...
  8. Thanks Honosuseri, I'm also taking a keen interest in your Amiga project. Massive Amiga fan. Grew up on stuff like Wizball, Xenon 2, Barbarian (too many great games to list here). I also got my Dragon's Lair II working, I just run the update from Daphneloader and copied across the downloaded files.
  9. Hey there, I'm using the 1.8.7 32bit core from this thread. Works well and has sound on the Daphne roms. I exit by hitting the exit button and it seems to close correctly for me. I do have an issue where all my roms work apart from Dragon's Lair II. Does that one work for you? It just won't boot up for me, but works fine in the daphneloader.exe
  10. Thanks to you I finally got this working! You are a super star, thank you so much for making the video. For reference if anyone else is struggling, I am running mine from an external 4TB drive. My path in my framefile using bega as an example is /storage/C67E63897E6370DB/Hyperspin/Emulators/Daphne/Daphne/bega
  11. Sweet, got the samba share working. I can now service the three Nvidia Shields in my house and hopefully also use the Retroarch ROMs share path for my Nintendo Switch too.
  12. I got it working, fantastic work, thanks for the guide. I'm now trying to see if I can run this via a samba share from my linux box (as I wanted to serve it 3 different Shields around the house). I've managed to mount the drive on linux and create a share, which I can view fine on my Windows 10 machine. On the Shield when I click on mount storage, it doesn't find it automatically. Instead, I added it by putting in the IP address\mount point (\\192.168.X.XX\sambashare) which seems to work, as it gets added OK and registers as connected. However, when I then try to open Hyperspin it just gives me the pop-up saying "No Hyperspin Data folder found". I can successfully browse the folders in other apps (i.e. in MAME I can find the share and add the roms path). Any clue on what I might be doing wrong? The root of the share has the Hyperspin folder in it, so not sure why it's not being recognised, any thoughts on this? Or do I need to look at this differently where I have the hyperspin folder on each machine and then just store the artwork/videos/roms on the share?
  13. keeping an eye on this. Finally got round to reinstalling Hyperspin and Retroarch on my shield and was wondering why I was getting the blsck screen in Hyperspin when launching anything from the wheels. Will give this a go now and see how far I get. Thanks
