  1. is he man, or is he machine? Circo does not sleep, he does not eat... he makes clips.
  2. avast now picks up my hs exe as a virus, false positive even right off the website. Seem to be getting more of those lately :-(.
  3. I just want to pitch in my 2c here for a few comments in the main post. I agree with the way it's setup but I think there should be a few exceptions to a few of the rules. I for one would like hypersync to officially support a few nonstandard set packs for my picking pleasure and think others would enjoy them too. A few specific examples come to mind: Crylen's framed wheel pack: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?23868-Complete-Framed-Main-Menu-Wheel-Set&highlight=framed+wheel and gibbawho;s unified theme pack once we have more systems for it: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?26433-New-Unified-Megatheme&highlight=unified+theme Those 2 are outstanding and I think rise above the exception. It would be a shame to not include those options, just like Kooljeep style became a selectable I wanted to cast a vote towards these selections.
  4. I like the idea of gun games better. Your friends will recognize gun games, the themes already exist, and it's universal for the category. I will be using it with Aimtrak's as well but people build different guns using the pieces.
  5. My aimtrak is off by 2-3 inches if I lean forward while sitting on my couch 10 feet away or raise the gun a foot or less. Yes you will need to recalibrate for sure they are VERY sensitive to calibration. I found an english translated version of freedo and have been trying like mad to get it to work but no such luck. Did you add a plugin or use what was in the package? I'm jealous. Did you get it working in demul? I can't get it to recognize mouse input. Do you mind posting your demule.ini and paddemule.ini ? Just paste into the comment field and put a code tag around each (kinda like quote but with the word code in brackets. That is another piece, not only creating the wheel but miniguides links or steps to getting other emulators that don't work out of the box to actually recognize the aimtraks. Not to sidetrack startrek's AWESOME work here I salivate for or anything, I just want to centralize and collect thoughts on getting these puppies going.
  6. I have somewhat been running with this idea lately and I think that on top of setting up a separate gun games wheel we are going to run into other potential issues: Aimtrak's don't like dinput but if you are like me and you use a controller for most emulators all your controls are already setup based on dinput. You will need to reprogram your main controllers for light guns sometimes and that can be inconvenient. We might want a little custom AHK that copies over / writes to INI/cfg files on launch and returns the other one on exit. That will take some thought... There is also under pinkimo's folder on the gold FTP some art & themes that go well. As far as 3do gun games I know Fourdo does not support light guns however Freedo does. Did you create a database xml yet? I like this as a project, let's keep moving and post progress. I agree anyone with helpful input please chime in.
  7. I am curious to see where this ends up because I just got a pair of Aimtrak's and what you come up with could really be of use to me.

    I have win7 x64 sp1. I used mapped drives flawlessly until last week but stopped only because I picked up some 4tb hard drives to make iso extraction faster on big games. I run mixed mode right now and just hefted the large files with long load times locally. I didn't stop for any faults. Moving to RL did not change anything, I had it setup for hl1/2/now 3. Originally G:\ was mapped to \\server\emulation\ but is now a physical drive. My smb share comes not from a nas but another windows 7 pc. Does your nas support an iscsi target? If it does you could get better performance than smb. I did have a problem with the pc being so fast with the ssd that it booted before network came up and the drive was disconnected. I had to open it once after rebooting but had since created a batch file that is in the startup folder with the commands: pushd "\\server\emulation\" popd This resolved my disconnected drives on startup issue. If we use AAE for an example then as reference, here is my working AAE settings.ini: [exe info] path=G:\Hyperspin\Emulators\AAE\ rompath=G:\Emulation\Vintage TV Consoles\AAE\Games\ userompath = true exe=aae.exe romextension=zip,7z parameters = searchsubfolders=false pcgame = false winstate=HIDDEN hyperlaunch=true [themes] themes_only = false animate_out_default = false use_parent_vids=true use_parent_themes=true [wheel] alpha=0.5 style=vertical speed = high vert_wheel_position = right text_with_images=true text_width = 700 text_font = Style2 small_text_width = 260 large_text_width = 400 text_stroke_size = 8 text_stroke_color=0x000000 text_color1=0x00BFFD text_color2=0xFFFFFF text_color3=0x00BFFD color_ratio = 100 shadow_distance = 0 shadow_angle = 45 shadow_color=0x000000 shadow_alpha = 1 shadow_blur = 0 [pointer] x = 965 y = 384 [video defaults] path = G:\Emumovies\AAE\Video\ width = 380 height = 285 x = 347 y = 370 rotation = 0 animation_time = 1 animation_type = fade animation_start = none border_color = 0x000000 border_size = 0 border_color2 = 0X000000 border_size2 = 0 border_color3 = 0X000000 border_size3 = 0 forceaspect = none belowwheel = false [sounds] game_sounds = true wheel_click = true [navigation] game_jump=5 sort_by_name = false remove_info_wheel = false remove_info_text = false use_parent_vids = false use_parent_themes = false last_game=bwidow start_on_favorites=false [artwork1 defaults] x = 375 y = 170 rotation = -7 animation_time = .5 animation_type = ease animation_start = top animation_rest = none [artwork2 defaults] x = 342 y = 637 rotation = 0 animation_time = 1 animation_type = fade animation_start = none animation_rest = rock [artwork3 defaults] x = 347 y = 368 rotation = 0 animation_time = 1 animation_type = none animation_start = none animation_rest = none [artwork4 defaults] x = 334 y = 104 rotation = 0 animation_time = 1 animation_type = zoom out animation_start = top animation_rest = none [special Art A] default = false active = true x = 512 y = 720 in = .4 out = .4 length = 3 delay = .1 type = normal start = bottom [special Art B] default = true active = true x = 512 y = 740 in = .4 out = .4 length = 3 delay = .1 type = fade start = none [Game Text] game_text_active = true show_year = true show_manf = true show_description = true text_color1 = 0x00CCFF text_color2 = 0x0066FF stroke_color = 0x000000 text_font = Style3 text1_textsize = 26 text1_strokesize = 7 text1_x = 32 text1_y = 660 text2_textsize = 36 text2_strokesize = 8 text2_x = 30 text2_y = 690 [Genre Screen] allgames_title = All Games text_color = 0x000000 text_x = 150 text_y = 200 stroke_color = 0xffffff stroke_size = 7

    I use a mapped network drive for my video paths until last week. Never had a problem as long as the drive was connected first. Might try wiping your %appdata%\roaming\hypersync folder and setting things up again (backup first) or at least fishing around the ini files there. I never used calls for my video folder though, I used direct named paths and it worked. Try typing it out completely in hyperhq and seeing if it works in hypersync?
  11. Circo: I created a folder with my username and kicked off the transfer of the rar I have now to the upload section. You should have it in like 10 min. thats the one that was found on UG right before they tanked
  12. I setup an FTP server on my home computer today and it seems like it's working. If you guys wanna relay some of this stuff through me that's fine. I can PM you some login info.
  13. wow, very cool. Why don't you send a PM to Circo? I would think the files should be named in a no-intro format for what they are. See how he would want something like that spearheaded though. I definitely support this. I would think a trump system would be most appropriate for these because we can't really demand high quality rips only - the rarity and likelyhood of ANYTHING OTHER than vhs rips is limiting. Catalog each one and replace it if a higher quality one is found. FWIW I have a copy of a torrent with maybe 500mb of commercials I snagged back when underground gamer was alive. If you want some starting scratch let me know and we can figure out how to get it to you.
  14. too bad you didn't join up a few days earlier to get your initial sync in. down for updates, gotta be patient. Rain will update when it's back online. Keep an eye on the psa thread.
  15. I really don't know shit about upgrading mame so to play it safe I downloaded the .149 binaries and installed over my dir, then copied the compiled exe into it and pointed hl to it. not sure if it's proper process but just dropping in one of the other compiled exe's didnt work for me before. I tested about a half dozen games on Jumpstiles exe the other night and it worked fine with hs. Now I just need to get my hands on some .149 filtered xml's and top off the roms. I could have fun with the new additions in a group drinking setting haha
