Don't know the purpose of the Backgrounds folder as I've placed a few properly named images in there and they don't display when I scroll over the games. I assume this folder is for background images so I don't have to create thousands of themes to change the backgrounds but I've never used it before. Sorry if this has been asked before but all the Google links are broken. Guess I should also mention that I'm using the HS beta if that changes anything. For reference, this is the backgrounds folder I'm referring to: C:\HyperSpin\Media\Nintendo Entertainment System\Images\Backgrounds
715 downloadsOk guys been working on this for a while, thought I would put out the 1.0 while I've got the chance... ...Presenting genre backgrounds and wheels for MAME/Arcade! Here is a collection of wheels and backgrounds in the style of my SNES and Mega Drive/Genesis packs. Unlike those packs, there are no included xmls with this pack as I have spent hours hand sorting my genres in a specific and unique way that will not match the average user 1 to 1. Unfortunately what this means is you are going to have to get your hands a bit dirty this time to make this pack work for you, the backgrounds and wheels are provided and organised, but you are going to need to do some renaming in order to suite the images to your xml files. Also you may find there are certain publisher or specific genre wheels that don't have included backgrounds or wheels here. The good news is there is a large selection to find something appropriate to complete your own setup, there are multiple images for just about every genre and I HEAVILY ENCOURAGE you to go through and rename the images you like, rather than the defaults I have selected. If your not sure what is involved in setting this up check out @ninja2bceen 's excellent tutorial video on genres. I take no credit for any of the background images, i've merely edited existing images that are out there to suit. I have created a few of the wheels from scratch, and given some existing ones a face-lift. There's a fair few hours of work here and I hope it shows. When I have some time there is a chance I will come back to this to increase it's scope and rename the images to match the standard naming conventions so it can be a little bit more plug and play. As usual i've included the default image for the border so as people can create their own backgrounds. I've also included my genre.xml which is unlikely to suit you directly but might help as a starting point. If anything seems incorrect, or you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments. Enjoy!

Also check here for the 'Base pack' It may be more recent and complete I'm not sure. --------------------------------------------------- Here are my other genre packs for SNES and Mega drive/Genesis
171 downloadsThese are my Genre backgrounds for the Sega Genesis/MD. You can see a few examples above. Put these in 'Media\Sega Genesis\Images\Genre\Backgrounds' in your Hyperspin folder. These go with my Sega Genesis/MegaDrive genre fix and include xmls and images from @SupraKarma's Ultimate Genesis pack. (Linked below) I've included the xmls here for convenience, but head here for more details. There are multiple backgrounds for some genres so definitely please take a look and pick which you prefer. Just rename without the attached number. Enjoy!
177 downloadsI've put together some genre backgrounds for the SNES. You can see a few examples above. I was fairly critical in trying to find the best art I could and went with nostalgia as much as possible, some boxart, some official and some fanmade. Put these in 'Media\Super Nintendo Entertainment System\Images\Genre\Backgrounds' in your Hyperspin folder. These go with my SNES genre fix with xmls and images from @SupraKarma 's Ultimate SNES 2.0 pack. (linked below) I'll include the xmls with this upload for convenience but head here for more details. The sports category backgrounds and all the wheels are from @SupraKarma's pack but I've included them here for convenience with permission. There are a few multiples included, (driving1.png, driving2.png etc.) Just remove the number to use an alternate background. I've included the Wheel Border image in case you want to do any of your own. Enjoy!
