  1. Thanks everyone! Looks like I will have to make detailed instructions if I ever release a theme.
  2. Thanks for the replies. I don't mean there are problems syncing into the folders for artwork 1 and artwork 2, I mean why can you only select box art and cart art? Why can't I pick, say, gameplay screenshots to go in artwork 1, title snapshots into artwork 2, box art into artwork 3, and carts into artwork 4? I'm making default system themes and I want to build them under the assumption that each artwork slot will have artwork for each game from EmuMovies (obviously not distributing the artwork with the theme).
  3. I have gone off the deep end researching themes so I can make my own. I was going to post this in the Themes forum, but there are no posts there... So EmuMovies has a lot of content--screenshots, box art, cart art, etc. Do theme makers always assume that these folders will have the same data? Like artwork 1 will always be screenshots, artwork 3 will always be box art, artwork 4 will always be cart art, etc? Obviously there won't be perfect matches for every system, but a general guideline for this? Also why doesn't HyperSync let you sync anything other than artwork 3 and 4?
  4. I have read so many posts and watched so many videos over the last two weeks that my mind has gone to mush. Some people say using zip files for your roms is a bad idea because of save state compatability with RetroArch or other emulators. Others say it's fine as long as you add zip/7z to the file extension list in HyperSpin. There are also performance considerations to keep in mind with unzipping a game every time you want to play. How do you all store your roms on Android, and why? And what about on PC?
  5. I found the Media.zip file and was able to successfully get the main menu to load with the folder in place. Thank you! I am getting very close to a fully working system now--I just have to figure out why the RetroArch configs don't always save properly.
  6. Can someone please elaborate on this step for someone who is not familiar with the "hyperspin config trick"?
  7. hello cowgod,

    i don't mean to alarm you but when i opened hyperspin-fe.com in my browser, instead of me being logged in automatically i was logged in as you, cowgod. i have never seen such a phenomena and i didnt really know you existed before this as i have been a member here for about a week.

    just a heads up and wondering if we should bring this up to a site moderator or tech who may understand why it automatically logged me in as a completely different user  from my home PC.


    1. cowgod


      Thanks for the heads up.  I have let the site support team know about this.  Hopefully it doesn't happen again!

      yeah it was very weird. i have no idea what would cause such an odd thing like that to happen.

      at first i thought my profiles name got switched somehow, but then i looked at date joined, posts, etc... and was confounded.

      so i logged right out, and then back in as myself and was still on your profile page just logged into the right account so i thought i would let you know.

      Stay well!

  8. Thanks for the tips, but it's too late for that! I got most of them all setup (Atari 5200 is a huge pain for reasons I do not yet understand), but now I need to look into getting all the artwork and bezels setup. HyperSync is working but apparently I need to use a new tool soon, so that will be another transition to look forward to... I also heard that you can setup game manuals in the pause menu of RocketLauncher? That sounds incredible.
  9. Oh! You're right, I never saw a Media.zip file. Where is that one located? I don't see it linked anywhere.
  10. Just wanted to say that I am new as well. I just got a Shield TV this weekend and spent the entire weekend playing around with it and setting up HyperSpin on my PC in preparation to also load it on Android. I have read so many tutorials and watched so many videos that they have all blended together and now I can't ever remember where I read/heard something anymore. Setting up HyperSpin from scratch is incredibly difficult, but I think I'm getting close after about 30 hours of work!
  11. It would be great if we could all work together to make an Android download starter pack that worked perfectly on the first try, and got it sanctioned as an official tutorial. As someone fairly new to HyperSpin, I spent literally all weekend learning about it and setting it all up. I have it all working on PC, but Android is a whole different ballgame and it's not clear at all why some stuff works and some doesn't.
  12. Thanks for the reply. Yes, I do get the intro video, and the system menus work fine, just not the main menu. Your zip file does not contain a Main Menu folder in the Media folder, so that must be the issue. Any reason you didn't include it?
  13. I tried the Main Menu.ini from both @thatman84 and @badhemi and they both just show a blank screen. Could this possibly be a media issue and not an ini issue? Does anyone have a working main menu for HyperSpin on Android?
  14. Hi, sorry I'm new to this but I purchased the platinum donation and I can't find the download for HyperSync. The link on here takes me to a joust download that just has a few PNG files. Is HyperSync still a thing or are we supposed to use FTP now? EDIT: Sorry, I just saw that HyperSync is included with the HyperSpin download now. My bad!
