  1. That is pretty interesting honosuseri, will remember that one but I do not often field android questions. Thanks for the heads up.
  2. More often than not, when fixing setups I have found that this was a result of wheel art as cataclysm said. Never seen a theme issue but I am sure it would result in the same.
  3. The wording was a little unclear so I am not sure if you want to get away from windows or don't like attract mode because it isn't Windows. Either way, Attract Mode has a Windows App as well.
  4. A Non-Merged has everything to run a game in every zip file. So it duplicates everything for every game thus making it the easiest to use as you will never need bios files or anything else. Generally a Non-Merged set should work. It also has the largest file size. A Merged set has all games and clones in one zip file. This is the smallest file size available for MAME. If you take a single rom from a merged set it should still work if you transfer the zip file to separate system as the parent roms and clones are all in the same zip file. A Split set separates the parent and clone data where the main zip file will have the main rom and the clones will only have what makes them different. This is middle of the road and in my opinion the best to use. A split set allows one to download an update pack and just drop it into the MAME directory and does not require ClrMAMEpro to change anything. I still check mine but that is because I am neurotic. Between Split and Non-Merged is like 10 gb in difference.
  5. Please don't take offense Frost, I just am being real in regards to stalling plans for updates. It is better to do what you want with what we have than to wait. When the beta came out it was awesome but at this point better to finish projects than wait.
  6. Treat it as if you had never heard of any type of update for HyperSpin. Think of it as a dead project. Do not wait for any news or updates. Either work with what you have or move on to actively developed front ends. I say this as an avid HS user who has too many work arounds to mention running on his machine. If they update, which again the assumption should be that they have no plans to, then great but I feel like I have wasted so much time waiting and could have put my efforts towards a more progressive front end by now and been much better off. So again, there are no update, there are no plans for updates, and HyperSpin is dead. Or least maybe we need to look at it that way.
  7. I am a windows 10 user unfortunately but here you go: https://www.cambiaresearch.com/articles/15/javascript-char-codes-key-codes
  8. Here is what mine is setup as if it helps: [P1 Controls] Start=49 Exit=51 Up=38 Down=40 SkipUp=37 SkipDown=39 SkipUpNumber=67 SkipDownNumber=53 HyperSpin=17 Genre=16 Favorites=90
  9. You and I play games much differently then. Those are the best games to play with a group.
  10. I am sure there is some kind of command line that I could edit into the module to force an update each time.
  11. Dropbox and symlinks is genius Fursphere, you just gave me a great idea.
  12. Thanks Aorin, I appreciate that. It worked fine there. Not sure what was going on with the version i got from the standard download.
  13. Well this thread is silly. Progets has some valid complaints and was very clear in his initial post to not explain what he was using in place of HyperSpin to avoid this silliness. When asked he provided his take on some front ends that are commonly used, then he was bandwagoned about his decision to leave? I am sorry that happened. I too have become frustrated with HyperSpin over the years. I am glad there are so many alternatives to fit the "different strokes for different folks." I cannot see how any of that is a bad thing. I would hope that would garner some good development so we one day have an awesome frontend that is easy to setup and looks beautiful. I think that most users do not design their own themes/layouts so it is kind of a niche complaint. In the same way I do not typically (though I have) make my own artworks, I like having a bunch of different styles that I can look through to find what I like. Attractmode offers that alot better than HyperSpin as most of the time it is just a matter of pointing to differnt artworks. To me it is easier but I have never taken the time to learn hypertheme because every time I have opened it on my pc, it has crashed which granted could have been something I did, who knows? Anyway, I do not know why this thread has to be a Hyperspin is great, you suck for jumping ship. It does have it's shortcomings.
  14. What I have taken away from this whole thread is that NO ONE READS THE WHOLE THREAD. So please put a huge, unable to be missed Disclaimer on the download notice, the download and even on the actual zip file so that when you unzip it, you would have had several notices about the issue. I cannot tell you how many times this very issue comes up in trouble shooting this software for people. That being said, people are still not going to read the notices so it is probably a waste of time
