    If you're trying to run using the command line, use this (your path will be different): C:\MAME\mame64 gtfore06 Of course that means (at the very least) you have to have the CHD and the iteagle.zip rom in your Mame\roms folder.

    Uncheck "ROM only". Gtfore06 only has a CHD.

    The others have already made good suggestions as to what you can do to improve the sound/performance of GTfore06. I'm running an i7-3770 at 3.4Ghz and the audio stutters are minimum with my resolution set to "Low_Alt" in the Dip Settings. R.Belmont has recently suggested that Ted has done some "fine tuning" so maybe we can expect those improvements in v.163 later this month.
  5. Nevermind. I deleted and re-added the systems in RL. In the GUI to add a new emulator, I named it, then clicked on the "+" to "Add new Emulator". I filled in all the fields (Name, Path, Rom Extensions, and then selected the appropriate Module). Inputted in the path to the Roms and tried to launch. It worked. I am now officially up and running with everything on RL and it only took 48 hours. Sheesh. There are lots of Wiki's out there, but you need at least 2-4 hours to sit down and read through it all before you start or you're bound to make a mistake along the way. And when your Hyperspin stops working after all the work you've put into it, the thought of ending it all does cross one's mind (kidding of course).
  6. Okay, I'm a little closer to solving this, but this is bugging me. Because I updated the name of my VisualBoyAdvance folder. I can launch the emulator fine if I highlight my emulator and click "Launch Emulator" under the RL Emulator tab, but when I go to launch a game, RL continues to look for my emulator in the older named version of my folder. I've deleted and re-added the emulator over and over. Does anyone know where I need to look to update the path? 10:35:07:779 | RL | INFO | +N/A | Main - RocketLauncher v1.0.0.1 (www.rlauncher.com) 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +62 | Main - System Specs: RocketLauncher Dir: H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher RocketLauncher is: 32-bit OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SKU: Home Premium Total Memory: 16270.91 MB Free Memory: 10522.49 MB Used Memory: 5748.422 MB SystemType: 64-bit Physical Processors: 1 Logical Processors: 8 GPU 1 Name: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 GPU 1 RAM: -1984.00 MB GPU 1 Driver Version: GPU 2 Name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 GPU 2 RAM: 1536.00 MB GPU 2 Driver Version: Sound 1 Device: Intel(R) Display Audio Sound 1 Status: Enabled Sound 2 Device: NVIDIA High Definition Audio Sound 2 Status: Enabled Sound 3 Device: NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM) Sound 3 Status: Enabled Sound 4 Device: Realtek High Definition Audio Sound 4 Status: Enabled OS Language: English_United_States OS Admin Status: No Monitor #1 (\\.\DISPLAY1): 1920x1080 (1920x1050 work) Monitor #2 (\\.\DISPLAY2): 1604x0 (1604x0 work) Monitor #1 Orientation: Landscape Current AHK Desktop Width: 1920 Current AHK Desktop Height: 1080 AutoHotkey Path: AHK Version: Unicode: No 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | CheckFile - Checking if H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncher.exe exists 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | CheckFile - Checking if H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Plugins\HyperSpin.plugin exists 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - Loading Front End Plugin: "HyperSpin" 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - RocketLauncher received "Nintendo Game Boy Color" and "007 - The World Is Not Enough (USA, Europe)" 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - Did not find a "H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Settings\Nintendo Game Boy Color\Game Options.ini" file, skipping any game-specific options. 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - 007 - The World Is Not Enough (USA, Europe) is using the default emulator: VisualBoyAdvance-M 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - Checking for a [VisualBoyAdvance-M] section in H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Settings\Nintendo Game Boy Color\Emulators.ini 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - Checking for a [VisualBoyAdvance-M] section in H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Settings\Global Emulators.ini 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - Found [VisualBoyAdvance-M] in H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Settings\Global Emulators.ini 10:35:07:849 | RL | INFO | +0 | CheckFile - Checking if H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Modules\VisualBoyAdvance-M\VisualBoyAdvance-M.ahk exists 10:35:07:859 | RL | INFO | +16 | Main - CRC Check - CRC matches, this is an official unedited module. 10:35:07:859 | RL | INFO | +0 | Main - 007 - The World Is Not Enough (USA, Europe) will use module: H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Modules\VisualBoyAdvance-M\VisualBoyAdvance-M.ahk 10:35:07:859 | RL | WARNING | +0 | RIniLoadVar - Created missing System ini key: "Mode_Rotation_Angle" in section: "Settings" in "H:\Program Files\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\Settings\Nintendo Game Boy Color\RocketLauncher.ini" 10:35:07:869 | RL | INFO | +15 | Main - Using standard method with "Rom Extension" SkipChecks or without any SkipChecks. 10:35:07:879 | RL | INFO | +0 | CheckFile - Checking if H:\Program Files\VisualBoyAdvance-1.7.2\VisualBoyAdvance.exe exists 10:35:16:110 | RL | ERROR | +8237 | Could not find your emulator\application: "H:\Program Files\VisualBoyAdvance-1.7.2\VisualBoyAdvance.exe" 10:35:16:110 | RL | INFO | +0 | ExitScript - Started 10:35:16:120 | RL | INFO | +0 | SystemCursor - Restoring mouse cursor 10:35:16:120 | RL | INFO | +0 | ExitScript - Ended

    Some Marquee Magic

    I'm interested in this as well. My marquee project has been posted under my FTP for about a year now & I've gradually increased the number of Mame marquees (updating with HD quality as I find them). It uses a Mr. Do layout file paired with a marquee in png format & zipped into an artwork file. They all look good & function well, but I still have to actually launch the Mame game before the Marquee appears. And I'm not smart enough to figure out how to do this with other emulators yet. What this fella has going here looks more like BBB started working on back in Feb 2011. That was what inspired me to try accomplishing the same thing while waiting for it to be implemented in the next version of HS. The one difference with this fella's output is that thee marquee is filling the entire screen (albeit looks a bit stretched). On mine, the marquee maintains the proper aspect size/ratio, it's centered, and looks good...just doesn't fill the screen completely on my marquee monitor. Recently, there was a nice development going with MarbleMad's high quality marquee compilation & the HyperMarquee project...but it appears after getting pressured to give credit (rightfully so) to Lord Hiryu who was (it appears) initially responsible for creating many of those HD marquees...........well, now www.hypermarquee.com is a blank page. Which is sad because I thought it might encourage more people to get in on completing the database with some really nice HD marquee scans (without watermarks). http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?23554-Dynamic-Marquee-Artwork-Database All of my work on FTP came from (at one time) the available work & compilations of MarbleMad, Mr. Do, Howard Castro, & Lord Hiryu. It's a shame there aren't more updates coming in the apparent foreseeable future. I wish we could get this going again as I'm a total marquee junkie. That LG M2900 stretch monitor is like the crown jewel of my arcade cabinet that I think really sets it apart from may of the cabs I see online.

    Got my LG M2900S back from repair...good thing was there was NOTHING wrong with it. Must have been a bad outlet on my older Bits Limited "smart strip" power supply...because I tried a different outlet and the monitor immediately powered up fine. Just weird that I got the green light on the monitor but must not have been pulling enough power. Only cost me $35 glad it wasn't the more expensive route to fix ($180 = mostly labor).

    Getting a monitor, dont call me crazy!

    Well shoot...after having my LG M2900S-BN monitor since April and everything pretty much working fine...the screen blacked out and I can't get any image to display. I just took it to the (only) authorized LG repair shop in town to have it repaired. Had to put a $70 deposit down. The green light is on, so it's getting good power, but no image on the screen anymore. According to several sites, it could be a number of things including the backlight, power supply, etc... This model monitor is a discontinued 2008 and according to the salesman, these monitors were notoriously stocked with under-sized Chinese-made capacitors. If its just that, it could run $150 to fix (which is mostly labor), but I won't know the estimate for another week (likely). Will post a follow-up, but please keep that in mind for all you guys purchasing these online. Not sure if its worth the extra cash for the warranty and the seller doesn't tell you what the problem was when you get it by mail. All I know is that if the problem is the screen...it's toast. It probably isn't the screen considering the condition of what I have, but that's worst case scenario.

    My cabinet is about 26 3/4" wide. The LG monitor is just over 30" long.

    Well, here it is...enjoy! EDIT: I've uploaded instructions and the marquees I have done (so far ~600) to my FTP if anybody wants them.

    Getting a monitor, dont call me crazy!

    The monitor is looking really good. I was concerned about it being wider than the actual cabinet but it looks really good. It's quite the showcase. I'm very happy with my VESA mount too. It's very solid, low profile, yet gives me the freedom to adjust the angle if I want to. I have it set at 1024x768. I've tried higher resolutions but this one works the best between my 27" WG D9200. EDIT: I'm actually running the marquee at 1360x768 resolution now for most Mame stuff and just using the monitor outside of Mame. The game marquee wound up getting displayed at just the top 2/3rd's of the monitor leaving a visible 3" unused space. However, by using the monitors menu options, I can just move the image down until the marquee is centered. At that resolution, the game marquees fill up more of the screen real estate and they look nicely centered. The only issue with doing it this way (for now) is games like Punch Out or any of the Playchoice material has to have the resolution on the monitor backed down to 1024x768 or the scaling appears off and the screen image won't fit. Not a difficult thing to do, just inconvenient. BTW, if your monitor ever stops displaying the color red and has a bluish tint to it, wiggle the cables and check the connection! That'll save you some stomach ulcers like I thought I was about to have this morning! Last night I was playing around with having iTunes visualizer on the top monitor, control panel LEDs flashing to the music, and floating lyrics on the main screen. Pretty awesome stuff. Also very cool to play Punch Out or any of the Playchoice games with two monitors. It looks very authentic. I spent today messing with Mame's built-in marquee features. Mr Do has authored a fantastic website to get people going if you don't wanna wait around for HS2.0. I started by downloading some of the available layouts/marquees and putting them into my Mame/Marquee folder. The marquees are a little squished compared to Hyperspin07's YouTube video example of the HS2.0 features and not all of the available marquees are great quality, HOWEVER it gets the job done! I picked out parts of Mr. Do's script that worked best and now I have my own default script for whatever marquees I couldn't locate before. Using the marquees downloaded from Emumovies, I as able to complete around two or three hundred marquees (EDIT: Now just over 600 done!). All of them load with their respective game either outside or from within HS. I'll probably post a video of what the marquee looks like in action this week. If there is interest, I could post my marquee scripts as well to FTP. All you'd have to do is drop them (zipped format) into your Mame/Marquee folder and then add a minor edit to your Mame.ini display settings. All of the directions are already on Mr Do's site. http://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php?Cat=&Number=182698&page=0&view=expanded&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1 and... http://mrdo.mameworld.info/index.html

    Here's the mount I went with... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GJYPEC/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 My SlikStik came with some ~1" particle board that measured approximately 25"x10" which was intended to cover the back of the cabinet base where the computer resides. Nobody ever sees this except me. I went to Ace Hardware and bought four screw and drilled them through this piece into the roof of my cabinet. And here's how it look with the mount attached to that piece...
