  1. Well I am so sorry about not give any updates about how this project was going, and well long short history is that the person i hired to Build the arcade cab, quitted, well not really quit just he said that he as a lot of work recently and since he told me that he wont charge me anything for it (only the material wich i already paid) that he will continúe when he has the time, and well almost 5 months have passed, i even told him that I was going to pay him (at 1st i ask for a quotation and he told me that since he liked this project he wont charge me anything), I was really sad about this, i mean i paid the hyperspin and emumovies membership, got a pc, bougth 2 graphics cards i think i spend around 400 usd on this project and it was just stored in a box, i was ready to give up, but guess what? I dont know how this happened but today i saw on facebook a sale annuncement a few blocks away from home i ran like 600 mts and i was able to get not one but 2 arcade cabs for just 100 usd, none of them work and both are modified for xbox games but im sure i can restore them, im looking for technical data, one cab its a Q-GrandAm 25 and the other one rock playintime 2, so since tomorrow i will be focused on restore them and put hyperspin on both, so wish me luck and if any of you can give me an advice i will be really happy, thanks
  2. Thx for your hard work! it does actually run better. my life was so miserable this 24 hours, sleep tigth
  3. Thx for your reply, and well... the extra button is mostly for SNK games and some fighting games (ex. mortal kombat, gulty gear, kof), the finger placement feels more ergonomical when playing those games specially KOF. my cabinet will be focused on beat em ups, shumps and fighting so, i came with the idea of this layout, actually the design is not mine i found it on internet but i was looking for something like that. i wanted the real experience of the 90s, thats why decided to do it with a CRT TV, not gonna lie its a lot of extra work but the hard part its already done, actually i find more diffucult the desing of the exterior than anything else lol. right now i just have some random images, graphic design its not my cup of tea, and well i am gonna paint it all with a nice black mate color and then use some collage or something.
  4. hello guys, just want to share my experience building my arcade cabinet, im so exited, that i think it will be finished by the end of this month. here are the pics of the progress: still working in the design of the buttons layout and in the art of the cabinet, thinking about paint it in black mate.
  5. Thx a lot for your help, after doing some trials i discovered that I plugged the stick in the wrong place so after that it worked, as you mention each emulator detect the joystick and of course now my problem is to configure it with HS i dl the file from the link you posted, but i need to review it coz i dont fully understand, again thx a lot
  6. Hello guys, i keep working on my cabinet, rigth now im working on the controls, the hyperspin system and consoles i want are ready, today i finally got the buttons and sticks i ordered from aliexpress, im testing them, one thing i noticed is that everytime i move the stick the button ligths goes off and i recieve this windows message saying i overload the capacity of the usb port, does anyone know how to solve this? i followed some steps i found on google but im still having the same problem, anyways, to configure the buttons and sticks i bought xpadder, but i dont know how to do the configuration, does any of you knows or have a guide to configure it in hyperspin? https://es.aliexpress.com/item/Two-Player-Arcade-DIY-Kits-Parts-USB-Encoder-to-PC-Joystick-Gilded-LED-Lamp-Lights-Push/32856149243.html
  7. Hello guys, im working on my hyperspin cabinet and im runing out of ideas. last weekend i got this 29 sony trinitron tv, it is really huge and has a nice sound 3.1, so, i was thinking about the design of the cabinet and to be honest i dont want to dissamble it, since i dont have any experience at all, so i was thinking about paint it black mate, and build the cabinet around it, so my initial idea was something elegant like the image below, but it wont work because of the speakers, then i saw the sega naomi cabinet, buy what do u guys think about it? any ideas are welcome thx in advance.
  8. well i ended up getting this samsung 22" crt tv, i was hoping to get one a little bit larger but this should be enougth, now im going to use the Ypbpr conection and im thinking about get a HDMI to Ypbpr like the one below, what do you guys think?
  9. just to say that i really like the ultimate themes you made, thx a lot, looking foward to get one for the nes system.

  10. well i dont know much about but capture cards, but i do know that u cant connect both analog and digital output at the same time, so maybe thats the problem, 2 digital outputs works fine. so maybe thats the problem.
  11. would you consider buying a TV? im thinking about getting one, i can get a 27" for around 30 usd, i have an old 17" but it is too small dont you think? to connect to the pc im considering buying this: my video card its an old GTX 750.
  12. ddnt knew about Retroarch , im dl rigth now.. thx!, so i guess i will use the 16:9 monitor just wondering about how old games looks like i mean games like street figther 3rd strike, or may i use bezel images like this one?
  13. Hello guys, i need help to decide which screen is better for my 1st hyper spin arcade machine, i have a 17" 4:3 touch monitor and a 24" 16:9 widescreen monitor, i know that 4:3 its kinda better for old games but i think that my cabinet will look a bit small and i have seen themes in 4:3 and 16:9 so im confused, i will mostly be playing figthing + shooter + bet them up and hack and slash games, so i dont know i also have a 17" 16:9 monitor to use it as marquee, or i can also get a tv for around 30 usd but i believe its more trouble, so in your experience which one is better? also getting this...
  14. hello Ashura, is there link to dl all the images that are in your signature? they are awesome, it is to fill black lanes in 4:3 games right?
