  1. You are correct, it won't help with XML
  2. Hi Shitoken, I used Bulk Rename Utility pretty frequently, for other purposes. It really works well and seems like it might fit what you're looking for. https://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/
  3. I would update MAME, there have been some huge improvements since 0.145. However (!) I would follow his wigglyness' advice and upgrade HS + RL first, point them to your existing MAME install and get that working first. The new version of MAME + ROMs will just be a drop in after that point.
  4. No, but it would be really easy to make.
  5. Assuming RocketLauncher bezels (more than safe, I'd think), try changing the bezels to backgrounds. Not with my setup right now, but a quick search on RL's site should give you some options/guidance. I'm wondering if the bezel overlaying the sides of the screen is interfering.
  6. Make sure you have the following line in your mame.ini: writeconfig 1 Without that line set to "1," MAME cannot save your config changes as made from the internal menus.
  7. The full MAME ROMset is the 9K you see, however a TON of those are either gambling, mahjong, mature, or clones (variants) thereof. Assuming you're only interested in arcade video games, I like to think there's probably around 900 unique titles of which maybe 400 - 500 are worth playing. I'd suggest using a filtered XML to show only arcade video games, and then (assuming you have time) start playing through some of the titles you don't recognize to see if you'd like to keep them in the list. Don's HyperSpin Tools is an application you may use to create a custom, curated XML that includes only what you want. Or you could do it by hand, but that's more work. Check my signature for an example of a best-of list... but read the description for mine, it's got some caveats around what's excluded.
  8. Honestly sounds like you're having a strange hardware problem.. could be true hardware or could be drivers. Whatever front end you use will have the same problem. For Windows itself to be having issues (calibration page in device manager is blank, etc.) something else is going on. Try removing the wheel entirely... go to just keyboard and see what happens. Need to isolate the issue.
  9. If anyone decides to go the HLSL route, let me know... like dark said, there are some different options. Also, heads up on some rumors I'm hearing within the MAME developers group. Some users (not sure who) are complaining about some lag with BGFX (first I've heard of this) so they may make changes to it in the near future. Not trying to push people one way or the other, just give a heads up so that as we upgrade to new versions we do so with caution to keep things working how we want them to.
  10. Are you using bezels via MAME or RocketLauncher?
  11. nvram files are generated when you run games in MAME. Not all games create them, though.
  12. I've seen the same issue with corrupt themes, but never wheel art. Try replacing the themes for those games.
  13. Yes, but by using HyperRefresh, you can have the machine running even when no one's playing it. Set it to a 12 hour restart and let it go.
  14. Good to see you again, it's been a while! You might have missed this utility:
  15. I'm interested in playing around with this in my setup. Where would you insert this code? This is the only "bug" i've experienced in the past... would be great to have a solution to it. Thanks!
  16. I'm not sure what was going on with your setup... the update was just a drag a drop (replace). The problems you describe sound like you weren't using RocketLauncher before this. If that's the case, you definitely would have needed to go through that migration, which has nothing to do with HyperSpin (other than changing the HL path). Good luck!
  17. This is in the RocketLauncher upgrade from HL instructions.
  18. Worth a shot... I'm sure you're ready to be done with this problem
  19. Looks like you're dealing with a MAME & ROMset mismatch which might be contributing to the issue... 0.171 and 0.182 were released almost a year apart and somewhere in there I know that hiscore was changed a bit. I'd suggest finding a 0.182 build of Arcade64 (FKA MAMEUIFX) or MAME proper and trying it out to see if that's what's going on. @gigapig FYI - we've been having a similar discussion over here:
  20. Thank you so much for the new release!
  21. I get this question frequently enough that maybe I should just update the description to include it.
  22. You need to be a supporting member... it's in the platinum download section
  23. Welcome back! I'm familiar with your situation... I hope you're able to get some sleep. If you're interested, you might start with my "best of MAME" xml (check my sig). That'll get you most of the way there, you'll just need to layer in trackball and lightgun games. I do the same thing, where I only keep the ROMs I want in my setup (though I keep the full set off to the side). I've switched to non-merged, which makes this a LOT easier since you don't need to keep parents + clones. Something to think about.
  24. I guess my thought is that the individual artist sections make it messy to find things. I think they should be removed. Feel free to merge my files into any other future section. How about a new download category for bezels?
