  1. 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.

    Hi I know this is an waaaay old thread, I just started updating my setup with all bezel support.... Daphne and Daphne singe look great. However with bezels on in daphne singe and playing any light gun games... 'right click' reloading off screen is not working (bezels disabled works fine). Tested with aimtraks and regular mouse. Is there a setting or something that can fix this? maybe a cli parameter or singe module edit?



    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    @griffin518 And that has the startup functionalities ? I thought you misspelled or misplaced the link because of the name of the program 'Tur-Volume' 

    I will have a look at it.

    Thanks for the response.

    It's just a long name that I can never remember or want to spell out completely. :) 

    Yes, it has terrific startup functionalities.

    I feel like this might be dying.  Another other bezels being added? Or is there a source of bezels that could be slipped in with this collection to add to it?

    I think we've all kind of burned out a bit and have needed some time for the creative juices to return. I've got a pack going as well, which has some that aren't in Metalzoic's but enough to warrant trying to slip them in? Not confident about that.

    If you know of any other creators out there, would you link them here? I always like seeing other people's work.

    I have the v1 of james bakers, I send it to you if you want ... but it is true that there is not any, I will maybe put me at work :)

    If you wouldn't mind sharing, that'd be great!

    Quick quest the nvram files are there a list of them or are they generated when  the game is played?  I have a lot of .hi files but only a couple of nvram files. Any help would be appreciated. As I ham having issues with this within hyper Marquee.  Just trying to get my system up to speed with all the goodies out there.

    nvram files are generated when you run games in MAME. Not all games create them, though.

  10. This won't be an issue with HyperSpin, but may be an issue with your antivirus program. It'll have alarm bells going off when one program calls another (ie HyperSpin calling RocketLauncher to invoke an emulator). Make sure you have AV exclusions on place for both HyperSpin and RocketLauncher .exe files and folders.

  11. I use GiMP for my creation / editing. You can script bulk changes, if you want. YMMV, though. I'm not sure if it'd work well.

    I'm at the point in my life where I'd weigh the time and effort and probably say screw it and buy a 16:9 to fit the norm, though :)

    HyperRefresh, funciona por tiempo asignado en su "conf" por mili segundos, si estas jugando en un determinado tiempo se cerrara y volvera abrir HS, Yo uso un refresco cada vez que ingreso a una categoria sub-wheel (Scritp de terceros) es así que constantemente puedo tenerlo todo el día encendido en mi maquina arcade.


    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.
