  1. I had to reinstall Windows and I went straight to version 21H1, copying the sxs.dll file from my previous build makes Hyperspin work without problems. I also deactivate Windows Defender in Group Policy since I don't need it. There's the unexpected Windows 11 coming soon, my PC isn't even compatible with the new OS, I believe MS is leaving behind all older CPUs which were vulnerable against the Meltdown and Spectre stuff. I plan on updating my hardware in the next two years. Maybe Hyperspin will keep on working in Windows 11 provided we have the required dll. Longe live Hyperspin's zombie years.
  2. Agent, we get it you're disappointed, but you've been a broken record for years now. The thread was already flowing in other directions, your opinions were already noted in other threads. If you have any other interesting and productive content or knowledge to share, feel free to do so.
  3. Realistic, yeah, I never said otherwise. In any case, I'll attach the following, I removed his avatar just because it's a PM and haven't asked permission to do so. When people complain or post anything like the OP, I never said people doesn't have options, nor I see others implying that. With the above message, I'm not even saying anyone should hope for anything, if the day comes, fine, if not, we'll live.
  4. Last time it was ninja2bceen that mentioned a discord group, maybe ask him?
  5. I see Agent47 is always willing to reply to any Hyperspin related post than lots of doubts or help he could have replied, even from my own posts in RocketLauncher, that's sad, you should move on, man, since it's all dead to you, why bother? I respect that you're caring the torch on RL, so focus on that alone. Like I said before in other posts, people don't seem to realize that is not only HS forums or software that stalled in the last few years, I won't even mention what happened in 2020 to further add to that. In 2015 all the retro community was on fire, RocketLauncher itself updated almost weekly. Libretro, Emumovies, RocketLauncher and emulator developments aren't in their best days, check those and compare to what was in 2010 to 2017. And I'm not mentioning Patreon backed emulators, that's a different story. Discord is making the forums seem deserted now, there are people posting new HS projects and media there alone.
  6. It's nice you like Hyperspin even though you tried different frontends. Since I started using HS back in 2015 I never tried other softwares, mainly because I already went so far creating media here and customizing themes, filling lots of gaps. I got used to the local databases, media creation in general, even videos, I recorded a lot myself. In the process, I had lots of ideas, some like yours, specially regarding theme creation, etc. Personally, Hyperspin works flawlessly in my PC, but I wouldn't wait for anything to change for the time being, there's little to none information about any progress or upcoming release, even some fixes were addressed mostly by users, like the latest Windows 10 update which broke HS functionality. Hypertheme itself was broken for a few years until I realized that I had to have a "MAME" folder in the media directory, empty, it just has to be there, otherwise HT would open a blank window. I'm just a regular user and I figured it out observing that HT always had a MAME system in its themes list. For you, a content creator, I understand what you're saying. Just don't keep any expectations and use the software as it is. If you create new media, themes, etc, keep the sources, in case of an update, you can always come back to them and use higher quality assets to a possible updated frontend. I read some salty comments here and there, but, personally I think it's still a solid software, it's by far one of those you basically have to manually add stuff, learn how it works and etc. For instance, Mad Stalker: Full Metal Force was released for the Mega Drive/Gen recently, I manually added it to the database, logo, cart and box.
  7. There should be a complete set, except some 3D boxes, Japan I think, which are available from Robin in Emumovies, I didn't upload those here because of laziness, so feel free to add everything in that section as well.
  8. Sega Genesis Database (USA) View File It has all entries released in USA, including official, unlicensed, protos and compilations. World unlicensed games like Xeno Crisis and others aren't included and will have their own database later. It's heavily based on @SupraKarma's improvements on the communities database, I've added two missing entries MTV's Beavis and Butthead (USA) and Prince of Persia (USA). Includes 22 titles released on the Sega Channel service, which are exclusives, even some undumped and titles that were only available physically in Europe and Japan. Early prototypes which are mostly broken/incomplete weren't considered, while the most complete ones were already tested and added on previous efforts. 3D Box art: Carts: Wheels/Logos Submitter Aorin Submitted 12/16/2019 Category Databases (XML) Credits Suprakarma and the gaming community in general

    This pack is taken from the amazing @Wally Wonka's carts found here, and like the 3D box art for Genesis it has all content released in USA, including official, unlicensed, protos and compilations. World unlicensed games like Xeno Crisis and others aren't included and will have their own pack later, some extra carts were made to fill in the new additions. It includes 22 titles released on the Sega Channel service, which are exclusives, even some undumped and titles that were only available physically in Europe and Japan. These will use the Sega Channel adapter as artwork, since it's what stored the downloaded game. Early prototypes which are mostly broken/incomplete weren't considered, while the most complete ones were already tested and added on previous efforts. 3D Box art: Wheels/Logos Database:

    The most complete media collection for the Sega Genesis, Includes all official and unlicensed releases, protos and Sega Channel games released in USA. This pack and database also includes 3 compilations, 6-Pack (USA), Sonic Classics (USA) and Triple Play (USA). Some notable releases like Alien Soldier and Mega Man: Willy Wars, among others were released in USA via that service, they are 22 titles added to the database and use the white cardboard box and Sega Net adapter pictures as artwork. This pack doesn't include unlicensed games released worldwide, like Pier Solar, Xeno Crisis and others, it is focused solely on USA content. Those unlicensed titles will have their own pack later. Early prototypes which are mostly broken/incomplete weren't considered, while the most complete ones were already tested and added on previous efforts. The 3D box art is from Robin, EM and LB member, in its most part, while others I made to fill in the new additions to the database. Carts: Wheels/Logos: Database

    This is a complete pack of carts for the Super Nintendo, it should include all 517 officially released games in Europe, plus Super Copa released in Brazil. This pack is partially OK, by that I mean most of the carts are from and old pack from Emumovies, which isn't 100% accurate, on the plus side it uses the newer ones from @Kondorito's pack, anyway, it's mostly a placeholder for a future accurate and higher resolution pack. If someone is interested in making them, contact me. 3D Box pack: Wheels/Logos: Database:

    This is a complete pack of 3D boxes for the Super Nintendo European releases, it should include all 517 officially released games in that territory, plus Super Copa released in Brazil. This pack is based on a work from other users,NailbombRP worked collecting 2D covers, cleaning and improving their scans and posting them on Github and some forums as well as this one, the other being @SwedishGojira which made a 3D script to turn those in 3D. There were extra boxes for games never released in PAL territory and some PAL even using their US counterparts a few were missing from the PAL database, which I mostly fixed applying the correct covers on the 3D ones.

    This is a complete database for the Super Nintendo, it should include all 517 officially released games in Europe, plus Super Copa released in Brazil. There's still room for improvements, like checking and fixing possible minor naming differences, which were mostly fixed, but there's always something that could be rechecked, also in Europe, ratings are different, so that's something to be checked as well. 3D Box pack: Wheels/Logos: Carts:

    There's never been a true European database and artwork for any given system I can think of (except native European systems, of course), I've seen packs here and there, but this is different, I've worked on logos to match all cover arts, all released titles in Europe are covered here, including game compilations, protos and unlicensed games to this region, all different names were fixed, since not all games have the same name across the globe. This is a complete European Mega Drive pack of 3D Boxes, including all games released in Europe, not only exclusives, even program entries are here, like Action Replay, mostly for the sake of the database and as a curiosity than any other practical use, also, all artwork is always nice to see, that's why having different regions for the same console is always relevant. This is a team work between Robin from LaunchBox/Emumovies and myself, we aimed separate regions and we're getting there, USA, Europe and Japan now complete. All 3D Boxes were made by Robin and this is the renamed and cleaned pack to match all official releases. Other artwork and related content: Carts: Logos - Wheels: Database:
  17. The same will happen to the Genesis soon, a clean database like the Japanese and European versions, there are some games never released physically in the US like Alien Soldier and Mega Man: Willy Wars, they were released via the Sega Channel service, a few compilations, etc.

This is a team work between Robin from LaunchBox/Emumovies and myself, we aimed separate regions and we're getting there, USA, Europe and Japan now complete. Note that most of this artwork wasn't created by me, I gathered all carts from the great @Wally Wonka's pack of carts for Genesis, which included European exclusive titles, the rest of them were taken from the Robin's European cart packs from Emumovies/Launchbox, then I filled all remaining gaps, including action replay, fixing some carts and the Knuckles lock-on cartridge. Most of the work is really building up a database, cross-checking artwork and title differences, filling in gaps, etc.
  23. If there's one thing (or three things) that messes this all up, are the spine, cart and manual English writings, if none of these were there, I'd still be on the Hardcore side, and since it's known as Hard Corps elsewhere, I believe it would be basically the user choice in the end, let's say both names are right. Also there are other titles like Castle of Illusion that in Japan can be called in both ways, that's Japan for you: Well, no choice would be wrong here either, while this is a different case than the Contra above, :>[ Anyway, please let me know if you find other inconsistencies, and I just remembered I haven't messed with the CERO ratings in this database.
  24. Actually, it's a word that would be translated with the same phonetic in Katakana and that is why it was localized as Hardcorps instead, try to differentiate both words "Harcore" and "Hard Corps" in Katakana, the only difference would be a space or a dot between ハード (Hard) and コア (Core), If you try that, you'll see the localization was misinterpreted, it should be localized as Hardcore. The box art is clearly written Hardcore without the dot or something in between that could make it a separate word for "Corps", instead they have a point which separates the ザ (The) from the Hardcore word "ハードコア". Beyond that, you may have heard a spin off called Hardcorps: Uprising, which is basically a Contra/Probotector for X360 and PS3, some Japanese speaking sites refer to this game like this: ハードコープス doesn't seem right but it's probably a way to say this game isn't related to the Mega Drive game. Anyway I have an open mind and I'm willing to update/fix the database any time, if you find any information that this entry in particular was meant to be named like it was overseas, let me know and any other entry needing fix, just tell me, thanks again! Edit: I often check Romhacking.net and people tend to fix numerous mistranslated games since the NES era, incorrect character names, locations, semantics, etc., it's really common. I'd say the spine English name was written by Japanese, I'm still considering what SegaRetro states and the lack of a space in the Katakana Hardcore writing. And, since they have Hard Corps in the cart, manual etc., I'd say there's no right or wrong, that kind of confusion is common, just edit it to Hard Corps and it's all good.
