  1. I figured it out. I needed a default theme (note it has to be labeled "Default" in the NES system theme folder). So whenever there is not a custom theme present for a selected game, it will use the default and thus provide a place where the video snap to pay. Hope this can maybe help someone else in the future, thanks again!
  2. Thank you for the support! I've attached 2 images. The first is my directory with the NES videos, one of them being "10 yard fight". Next image is what it appears on my hyperspin wheel for NES when that particular game is highlighted, I would expect the video to play but there is no action occuring. I'm curious if it may have something to do with there not being a "theme" for all the games. The only videos that play in the NES wheel are those that have an accompanying theme in the theme folder for NES. So for this example, there is no theme for "10 yard fight" and thus no video is played. For games that do not have a specialized theme created for them from HyperSync/EmuMovies, is there a default theme you can set as a "catch all" for all remaining games? Thanks for your help and I will definitely check out the audit tool you linked!
  3. Hi All, I have been playing around with my Mame cab lately and have recently attempted to add the "Nintendo Entertainment System" to the list of systems (previously I only had different arcade manufacturers and only using the MAME emulator). I have HyperSpin as the front end and had previously successfully used HyperSync to get all arcade video snaps to work. I have everything setup where Nintendo Entertainment System is showing up on the wheel, launching games through the NES emulator great. I used HyperSync to download all EmuMovies content for NES and all artwork and a lot of animation/themes seem to have synced fine and appear on the wheel. The videos also synced/downloaded and I see them in the media folder; however, the mass majority of them are failing to load on the wheel. It seems like an odd mix of issues: I've did a visual scan between the rom names and the video names and they seem to match Some NES videos play on the wheel but very few Some I can hear the audio when I cycle through them on the wheel but no video I have windows media player, windows classic media player and VLC all downloaded and installed. I also have the k-lite codec pack installed. All the mp4 videos play on VLC and windows classic media player, they do NOT play on the windows media player. All the MAME/arcade video snaps play just fine in hyperspin, they are also all mp4 format, they also came from EmuMovies I have an intel board but am not using an integrated graphics cards It appears that the only videos that work are the ones where there is a game theme/animation when highlighted on the wheel Thanks for any help!
  4. Ok thanks, that makes sense - When you were adding your media by copying and pasting with it renamed, did you use anything to "flag" the ones that needed this treatment? Or did you just go through the wheel looking for ones that lacked the preview video?
  5. @Metalzoic I've kind of just lucked up because I also happen to have .175 and so I just used your xml that you linked in this thread. I"m using it and then in HyperHQ I set the options to show parents only. One question - I notice that when I do this, for some of the well known 4 player games, you still are showing the parent 4 player version, along with the now uncloned 2 player version (TMNT, simpsons, etc.). The 2 player versions don't have the preview video/theme/artwork - For these, did you just manually go back through and rename the media to be associated to these? And did you manually go through and "unclone" the original 4 player parents? Finally, to begin splitting into manufacturer wheels, you just load this base xml (the .175 verson you link in this thread) into Don's list tool and then start filtering by manufacturer and exporting them out into their own lists? And save the amount of work, I should do the above in bold FIRST before I load it into Don's tools to begin this task? Thanks for all your help.
  6. @Metalzoic Hi Metalzoic, quick question - When you "unclone" the desired rom using this method, and "clone" the parent. (ex. If I was switching the parent to be the simpsons 2 player version instead of the 4 player) - how do you then "resync" your media with themes/video/artwork to now recognize this new parent? I have it working where the 2 player is now the parent, only one showing in HS and will launch, but it doesn't load the artwork/video/theme anymore like it used to do when the 4 player version was the parent. Can't figure it out! Thanks for any help!!
