  13. Just finishing up the retrofit of an old arcade cab I picked up at an auction and after a night of playing I noticed when the gf mashed the buttons it tabbed out of my mame game and went back to hyperspin!? I've narrowed it down to the P2 2 and 3 buttons which map to q and s when hit at the same time I can reproduce this error. Any suggestions? I'm assuming it's a hyperspin hotkey but i could very well be wrong.
  14. thatman84 I thought I'd attempt to make an updated version based off of your Atari 5200 tutorial. Tested on: Nvidia Shield TV (2015 16GB version) OTA 5.0 Retroarch MAME 0.182 core (Pre warning: As of this posting on this version of mame the d-pad does not work but instead is relocated to the left analog. The guys at Libretro are already aware of this issue and I could not reconfig my gamepad in anyway to get the d-pad to work. All other buttons work though. One trick around this is to open Retroarch and go to player 1 bindings and re map the left analog then exit Retroarch.) Retroarch MESS 2014 0.159 790dca5 core (The d-pad seems to work on the few systems I tried like Neo Geo CD so this core may be the better option to use until the mame core is fixed.) Preperations Step 1: Download mame for PC (if you already have mame hash folders or can download them seperately from somewhere then skip to step 3). Retroarch for Android is currently up to version 0.182 as of this posting so get that version. You can find it here Step 2: After installing mame and extracting it to a destination of your choice you'll see a hash folder. Step 3: Create a "mame" and "mess2014" folder within your Retroarch system folder which can be found on your Internal Storage in Android>data>com.retroarch>files>system( If you don't see a system folder then create one as well). After creating your mame folder, copy the hash folder that you just extracted and paste it into your newly created Retroarch system mame and mess2014 folders. Here's an example pic of how I have my folders: Step 4: I believe Retroarch sets your "System/BIOS" directory by default to your system folder but if it doesn't you can set it manually by going to Android>data>com.retroarch>files>system and then hit <use this directory>. It's also a good idea to put your bios folder in there to have everything together (optional). Also if you have an ext hard drive and want to save space on your device you can move the whole "com.retroarch" folder to a destination of your choice, as long as you have your Retroarch "System/BIOS" directory pointed to the "system" folder where ever you choose to move it to. Make sure that your configuration is set to "Save Configuration on Exit" and then exit retroarch. May be best to re enter retroarch and make sure your system/bios directory has been saved to the location you set as that's very important for retroarch to know where your mame hash folder is. Setting up a Mess/Mame system For this guide we're going to use Bally Astrocade as our first system to set up. So let's say you want to add Bally Astrocade to your android Hyperspin wheel, first thing to know is that Retroarch Mess/Mame does not follow the basic Hyperspin naming pattern so your Bally Astrocade games, xml database's "game name" (will be explained as we go along) and all media (box art, carts, game wheels and videos) will have to be renamed according to the abbreviated naming that Bally Astrocade uses in the mame hash folder, in this case the xml is labeled as "astrocde" (It can get tricky trying to find a system's abbreviated name in there but most are easy to find or you can refer to this guide using the combination Ctrl/f on your keyboard to type in the system you're looking for which will not only bring you to the system you want but also have its abbreviated spelling in the "Name" column along with other information in the other columns). If you look in your mame hash folder and open the astrocde xml you'll notice any game on the list has a comepletely different naming in it's "software name" to it's "description" name. You'll have to rename all of your games in your Hyperspin Bally Astrocade xml (and any other system you set up) exactly how it is in the mame hash game system xml's software name, (*software name* is basically *game name* in any Hyperspin system xml's). So for example we'll use the game "Astro Battle". You need to use the "softeware name" astrobat" and copy that name over to your hyperspin xml and replace "Astro Battle (USA)" with *astrobat*. Basically you want this: and put that where this naming is: Every game on your Hyperspin database game system xml needs to be renamed like that but fortunately there's an easier way. A member by the name of Phulshof has created a Hyperspin ready MAME/MESS 0.182 XML database pack with all games already renamed which can be downloaded here. After extracting the pack look in the "MESS 0.182" folder for the system you want (in this case astrocde). It's best to use the "no clones" xml's to avoid having games on your hyperspin list that simply will not work so assuming you already have a hyperspin Bally Astrocade database folder ready, copy the "astrocde_no_clones" xml over and rename it to "Bally Astrocade". Sidenote: Trying to copy over a xml from the mame hash folder and renaming it to match your hyperspin database (for example, taking the "astrocde" xml and renaming it to Bally Astrocade and placing it in your Hyperspin database folder) will not work. Hyperspin can not read the mame hash xml's which is the reason why we're using Phulshof's renamed Hyperspin ready xml's. Now that you have a working database that's ready the next thing you'll need to rename is your emulator folder (or whichever folder you'll use to place your roms). The rom folder needs to be named after the mame hash system name so name it "astrocde". In this folder you must place all bios files (zipped) along with all of your roms (all roms have to be zipped). Sample pic below (I highlighted the bios file): In your settings ini make sure to have your rom path set to the emulator folder where your roms/bio are, fill in your rom extension line with zip and 7z and of course set your exe and parameters to either the mame or the mess2014 that you choose to use. Sample pic below: Mame settings: Mess settings: Also here's another sample pic of how I have one of my media folders (videos) named using the mame/mess hash folder xml's "game name" titles for Bally Astrocade. Remember that all of your media files (boxart, carts, game wheels and videos) need to be renamed in this style for any system you set up: Now that you have your bios placed where it needs to be and your settings is set all that's left is to rename all of your media (boxart, carts, game wheels and videos) and test out some games. Ideally it's a good idea to test a game through retroarch just to see if the game starts there first. If a game loads through retroarch then that means it will load through hyperspin as long as all of your settings and files are named correctly and placed where they need to be. You should also check the following settings if games don't start in your core's Quick Menu>Options: Enable Softlists: On Softlist automatic media type: On Boot to BIOS: Off Boot from CLI: Off You won't be able to access those options unless thee core is running a game so run any other game you have that works to get access to the options. Afterwards save core over rides in the Quick Menu and then exit Retroarch. I'm currently working on an ongoing project with thatman84 to rename as many system media files (boxart, carts, game wheels and movies) as I can for use in your Hyperspin wheel. You can find some already completed and available for download in thatman84's emumovies fpt folder in /Upload Here/_Other/Thatman84_HSAndroid to try out, for a list of systems already done you can check here. Also if anyone knows a faster way to rename multiple files that have the same name but placed in different folders to one name please let me know, I'll be able to complete more system media folders faster that way which would mean more obscure systems can be added to android hyperspin which would mean a win-win for everyone. Also anyone is welcome to join and help in this project. Additionally it's always a good idea to check this list before attempting to try out a new system to see if it even works through Mess/Mame first. Green light means it works, red mean it doesn't, yellow I guess is a 50/50 chance. Also all are welcome to help change, edit and help simplify this tutorial to make it as easy as possible to set up a system.

  16. Hey guys, I'm running into a small issue with Hyperspin not loading my MAME ROM's. I have read other people having the same issue and I have followed what people have suggested EXCEPT using the renaming tool to remove the file extension on the rom's. I wasn't sure if I should still do that with seeing that the forum date was over a year ago. Also the two videos I watched from from game room solutions and Simply Austin doesn't mention doing that. I have also included a few snapshots of my .ini files just in case I screwed something up. The rom's also work in RocketLauncher with no issue. Let me know what it could possibly be and thanks guys for the help.

RAM? VIDEO? and MICRO? Sorry for my english i speak spanish and i do my best Thanks for all for this comunity its look pretty cool
  18. I need some help getting mame setup for a shield tv. I already have hyperspin working with NES, SNES, N64, SMS and Sega Genesis The way i have it setup is on the root of shield is my hyperspin folder. In hyperspin I have a folder called Emulators, Folders named with each system, then a folder called roms, then the roms ie. hyperspin\emulators\Sega Genesis\roms All of the roms i have for these systems have one file with the same file type for all roms for each system. ie: all Nintendo 64 roms are .z64 file extension. Also all of the roms are clearly labeled with the game name. then in my settings folder in hyperspin there are .ini files for each system. Inside the .ini i set up the rompaths correctly, with the retroarch exe and the rom extensions = to the file extensions in my rom folder. I also have the cores setup with the correct core that was downloaded through retroarch. There are also database files for each system with one xml document for each system. all of these systems and games work fine in hyperspin. Now for Mame. I downloaded two sets of Roms, one called .180 which is full of a ton of zip files and also hbmame which was 16 different zip files full of what looks like a lot of the same stuff in each zip. When i unzip the zip files for what i think are the games they look nothing like my other roms for the systems. 1. Am i supposed to have a folder named MAMA under emulators then roms and dump all of these zip files in there? (i did try this and i couldn't get anything to work after) 2. The Database file under MAME is full of different xml documents like bowling games, boxing games ext. Is this correct? My other systems have just one xml there with a list of all games. 3. The MAME .ini file also came with .mame4droid for the exe instead or retroarch, is that correct, or should it be the retroarch settings? 4. I feel like I must be missing something big with the mame setup. Doesn't seem like the others. Any help in pointing me the right direction would be much appreciated. Sorry for dragging on, just want to make sure i am clear. Thanks.
  19. Hello, sorry if this question is a bit "noobish" i just downloaded a merged Mame software listROM set (.182 and an accompanying CHD set(softwarelist combined both files contain almost 2 TB of data I am completely unfamiliar with what these software list libraries are as I was more used to a single archive of MAME ROMS (zip files and any accompany CHDs. I guess what I am looking for what can I do to test what I have downloaded to make sure the tim I just put in to get them was worth it? If someone could pleaseoffer me some suggestions I would appreciate it Thank you
  20. Hi all, This is my first post (please be gentle ). I've been lurking for a while, reading a lot and I've managed to get HyperSpin setup on my PC with a whole bunch of systems. I've also got HyperSpin installed on my NVIDIA Shield Portable. So far on the shield I've got MegaDrive/Genesis, GBA, PSX and N64 working through RetroArch but I'm getting no where with MAME. I'm using a 0.182 romset, I know this is the most recent so I wondered if that might be the problem? However launching the games manually in MAME4Droid works fine. I've tried editing the settings file with the instructions in this thread to work with MAME4Droid. That didn't work so I tried setting it up through RetroArch which also isn't working for me. If I open HyperSpin and select MAME from the Main Menu the Main Menu just refreshes, I never get to the list of games. I think I have the settings file set up correctly and I've copied over the database that works fine on the PC over to the shield. Here are my settings: [exe info] path=H:\hyperspin\emulators\MAME\ rompath=Emulators/MAME/roms/ userompath=true exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture romextension=zip parameters=mame_libretro_android.so I'd usually consider myself fairly tech savvy but this is my first Android device so I could really do with some help. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

  22. I'm thinking about adding a "gambling" wheel to my setup with a handful of poker, slot, and other types machines using MAME 0.180. Does anyone have a list or a link to info around the best, or favorite, english language games out there? I'm having a hard time finding much info, and sorting through the huge list of ROMs is proving to be a huge pain in the butt. Thanks in advance!

    Hey Fellas, How can I fix the "spotty" sound in my MAME roms?
  24. Hey everyone, I've been trying to set up different wheels for MAME and I've run into an issue. I have all of my MAME videos in the MAME media folder and I have tried to direct the Capcom Classics.ini to the said folder but I isn't working. I've copied the MAME.ini and renamed it to Capcom Classics.ini and the video path looks like: [video defaults] path=H:\hyperspin\Media\MAME\Video\ Is there anything else I should change in the ini to get this to work?
  25. I have several duplicates for MAME, which I can totally live with, but only one rom in the duplicates will run the video media preview. Is there a work around to this? Or is there an easy way to only keep the parent rom?
