  1. Still cant get in :/ MY APOLOGIES I AM COMPLETE BIFF Went to the support page and downloaded the latest HSync, actually followed the instructions this time and didn't put it in a the usualy HSync folder and it worked immediately DAMN MY INABILITY TO READ
  2. Exactly what UMHN said do not buy a preconfigured drive, you'll spend more time sorting it out than you would if you followed some of the tuts and guides on here! Once you have set up a few Emu's on HS you'll be whizzing along like a pro
  3. Cheers Rincewind the final thing is done. LED's replaced and a few caots of satin varnish on the front to seal it and make it shiny Excuse the mess in the backgound it my "laboratory" as my kids call it please keep in mind this was a quick build to see how cheaply it could be done The next one a full size is so far shaping up a lot better as per the 2nd and third pics
  4. Well did the Vinyl wrap today and added some home made decals added. Only annoying bit it I took the LEDs off to do the wrap and snapped the cable about halfway round ( another set ordered £9 added on to the build total!) So today's costs were Black roll of Vinyl - £4 Electricians Tape ( Red/ Blue/Yellow) £0.69p each 1 sheet of A4 for light Cycle prints £0.01p Time spent on decals and wrap 1 hr Total Cost of Build £65.70p Total Time spent on build 7 hrs Going to be an extra 30 mins to swap the LEDs over when they arrive and then I may add some defuser tube over the top but I'll see how I feel at the time Well that pretty much concludes the Bartop on a Budget build ha ha Ill add some completed pics once I've switched the LEDs over, I may paint over the "END OF LINE" also to thicken it up a bit
  5. Well I am taking the plunge and gong sticks and keys over 360 controller. So i have found these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261902469498?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT They work perfectly with minimal set up and USB in so no need for 100's of wires etc Stripped down they look like this (see attached image) piece of cake to mount to your cabinet and paint any colour you like! Just though I would share this with people in an attempt to save time and money as they are cheap and USB in!
  6. Yeah I agree, need to get some misted up rubber hose to cover them though, as even though the remote can dim them they are still a little "in your face" when playing
  7. Possible red decal option, I'm looking at a nice TRON one also as the LEDs can change to whatever colour and I'm old and like TRON lol Excuse the amazing artwork graphics are not my strong suit as you can tell
  8. Well to be totally honest mate you are to thank (and blame) without your tuts non of it would have happened, they will be a "beer" heading your way. Along with a few questions lol
  9. Update on the build. Cabinet build finished, painted, hinged rear attached, spray painted. LED surround added, nearly there just waiting for the decals to arrive. Added expenses £14 primer paint £7 Spraypaint £9 LED lights £4 hinges £5 decals Total for build £61 Time spent about 2 hrs VID-20160224-WA0089.mp4
  10. I can't remember off the top of my head and I've just painted it, soon as its dry I'll fire it up and let you know
  11. Well about a month ago a so called friend decided to ruin any spare time I may have had a bet me to build an arcade machine.......TWAT So i got tinkering with HyperSpin and after extensive reading and watching dove in. I now have it set up and running for PS2 N64 GameCube SNES NES GENESIS Master System Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Atari Lynx Atari Jaguar Sega Game Gear MUGEN MAME Sega Model 2 Sega Model 3 Dreamcast Sega 32x For most of them I have the enitre game collections NOT PS2!, cart art, intro videos etc to make it all shiny and nice looking and all running off 2 x 360 controllers at the moment. So now was the time to build the cabinet, I opted for a bartop one instead of a full height for the first build Well bit the bullet today and started my first build. I a total DIY biff so keep this in mind and also why my brother in helping out! Well from a piece of wood to a "sort of cabinet" took about 3 hrs. I have cheated a little as I had an ALL IN ONE pc sat on my study floor for the past 4 months and figured it would do. I have used 360 style controllers for this build as I have PS2 etc on it and I need the shoulder buttons. I'm reserving the joysticks and buttons for the full height cabinet that I'm planning next. We are up to the built, filler in, PC in and all set up, controllers in. Just needs sanding, painting and decals putting on. Also opted for a 5M strip of multi coloured neon LED tape to go around the whole edges rather than plastic runners etc, when you see the decals you'll see why I'll be keeping them neon blue. I'll update the post as I finish it off. Total build cost so far £12 for MDF £3 for screws £3 wood filler PC donated a while back £9 each controllers Man hours so far = 3 (+ 1 hr drawing plans out prior to build)
  12. Tried point to the module and still the same error am I missing somthing obvious also? Cheers peeps Esp Austin! *EDIT* Extracted the .rar files to .a52 and all smooth sailing now
  13. I'll give it a whirl and let you know cheers
  14. Now then guys and Dolls, First forum post that I've had to make, after following a load of tuts and videos etc from here so first off HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEY'RE HELP I have a full set up going very smoothly, HOWEVER, here it is I just recently added PCSX2 for PS2 playing, it's working perfect loads up, plays on 100% BUT for the life of me I cannot get it to exit out of HS, usually I have "Esc" as my exit key but it doesn't register or rather it does but it only closes the ACTIVE HS game window and leaves the Emu running in the foreground which I then have to exit manually and click back into HS. Is there a work around for this, is there something I'm missing......... I have tried using my Google Fu to find a solution and so far I am drawing a blank, other a forum post about exiting some code but it's very poorly explained so is a much use as boobies on a fish! Any help or advice would be gratefully appreciated MUCH LOVE AND KEEP ON GAMING JBVO
