    This is a combination of the official hyperlist xml, the 'official' thread that Tonesmalones and others contributed to, and work done by me. I'm trying to steer away from renaming 'ROM' names. It's a hassle for the entire community. At the end of the day the 'game name' or 'file name' is irrelevent, what displays in HyperSpin (currently, the description) is what matters. Big changes are coming with the way we do databases, but for now, I prefer to change the 'description' name only, unless the ROM name is particularly offensive to me (e.g. Sega Rally Championship 2 instead of Sega Rally 2: Sega Rally Championship. Also note that Tonesmalones made it a point to utilize semicolons in the descriptions. I agree with this, it looks more 'professional' like a movie title. Hyphens will still be used for games like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Fight for the Future, also in certain instances, like Resident Evil - Code: Veronica. What I'm trying to avoid is double instances of anything. It looks sloppy. Again, these changes are only in the description, the filenames will use hyphens for everything. I understand that the current consensus is to include 'everything playable,' even mahjong games that require you to navigate a Japanese menu to even play. I have mixed feelings on this. I didn't include stuff like this because I consider it culturally insignificant. If you take issue with this, speak up. But it's more work for everyone involved - it means someone has to make a 'Hentai Tentacle Master Gangbang Mahjong part 5' wheel, box art, video, etc. I have no desire for this kind of stuff in the official list, playable or not. Games that are either 'unplayable,' undumped, or 'culturally insignificant' have been exported to an 'exclude' list. The idea is, you can easily merge the official list and the exclude list, to have every game if you so desire. This should please everyone. If you're mad that a game wasn't included, well, there's the exclude list. Feel free to add it yourself. If you believe there have been errors made, and some Japanese games belong in the main list, by all means, bring it to my attention, we'll make it happen. Games have been checked for publisher and rating accuracy. The list is certifiably 96% accurate, there may be minor updates as I continue to work on my 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast' project. As always, if there are errors, feel free to bring them to my attention. We all want the same thing here - accurate data.

    Credit goes to Tonesmalone, chex, and Retro Goonie. Special thanks goes to Kondorito for already having box art for the entire database - that made my job a lot easier. Game names were not changed at all - if you were already using the development thread database, switching to this one should not break anything, and you will get the benefit of improved meta data. I have taken the development thread [Official] database, and done the following 1. Corrected errors in the <manufacturer> field. I am primarily concerned with the name reflecting what is written on the box - and I tried to be as accurate as possible. So if one game uses the typical 'Taito' logo, but another one uses 'Taito Corporation,' I entered the data accordingly. Sometimes there is no logo, and I had to use the small print on the back of a box or the cartridge. And some cases, I had to use the title screen. I tried to give respect to any situations where there were multiple names on the box. In that situation, I entered the data in the format of developer/publisher, or in some cases, developer 1/developer 2/publisher. 2. Re-added two games that were taken out of HyperList - Super Mario Bros (25 Anniversary Edition) (Japan) and Super Maruo (Japan) (Unl) (Translated En). Super Maruo has the enabled="0" feature activated, and if you want it in your collection, you will have to manually alter the database and either change it to enabled="1" or delete it, so that it it is the same as the other entries. It is not just an 'adult' game, it is also pornographic and vulgar. It should be in the list, simply because it exists - but it's also trash in every sense of the word. 3. Changed the Shufflepuck Cafe rating back to HSRS - GA. This game is harmless. There were rumors back in the Amiga days that the scantily clad female would flash you but they are bogus as far as I can tell. And I personally played the Famicom version - there's no nudity. 4. Added 4 new games. Downtown - Nekketsu Koushinkyoku - Soreyuke Daiundoukai (Japan) (Translated En) Gimmick! (Japan) (Translated En) USA Ice Hockey in FC (Japan) Venus Senki (Japan) (Translated En) USA Ice Hockey is not a translation obviously, but any Japanese game with 'USA' in the title fascinates me. I've included a genres.zip download, that includes custom manufacturer genres for every single developer/publisher, years, ratings (even though Super Maruo is the only 'Adult' game), and two custom genres - Translations, and Sports Complete. That about covers it. If you have any suggestions/improvements to offer, please visit the following thread:

  9. Hi, im editing xml list for MAME 0.139 and im seeing that there is an alphabetical order, but what happens is that is not an exact order Im asking me if someone knows about a program that can handle that, i mean, reorder the blocks in the xml by alphabetical order by a determinated tag/label (in this case description label). In the next example we will see that the game mgakuen2 should be place before than the game mgcldate (because the description tag/label is the real alphabetical order for this case): <?xml version="1.0"?> <menu> <game name="88games" index="true" image="'"> <description>&apos;88 Games</description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>Konami</manufacturer> <year>1988</year> <genre>Sports / Track &amp; Field</genre> <rating>AAMA - Green (Suitable For All Ages)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="005" index="true" image="0"> <description>005</description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>Sega</manufacturer> <year>1981</year> <genre>Maze / Shooter Small</genre> <rating>AAMA - Green (Suitable For All Ages)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="a51mxr3k" index="true" image="a"> <description>Area 51 / Maximum Force Duo (R3000)</description> <cloneof>area51mx</cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>Atari Games</manufacturer> <year>1998</year> <genre>Shooter / Gun</genre> <rating>AAMA - Red (Animated Violence Strong)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="mgakuen2" index="" image=""> <description>Mahjong Gakuen 2 Gakuen-chou no Fukushuu</description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>Face</manufacturer> <year>1989</year> <genre>Tabletop / Mahjong * Mature *</genre> <rating>AAMA - Red (Sexual Content Strong)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> <game name="mgcldate" index="" image=""> <description>Magical Date / Magical Date - dokidoki kokuhaku daisakusen (Ver 2.02J)</description> <cloneof>mgcldtex</cloneof> <crc></crc> <manufacturer>Taito</manufacturer> <year>1996</year> <genre>Multiplay / Mini-Games</genre> <rating>AAMA - Green (Suitable For All Ages)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> </menu> The MAME xml list that im creating have a lots of this alphabetical "errors" that can't be handle in an easy way (because in the xml are +7000 games). So im hope that someone here knows a program that can handle that. If not, i will put here somes ideas for create this program (i think that create this program should be easy, but i don't know program): 1.- Check all blocks in a determinate xml file (a block for me is from here <game name="unknown" index="" image=""> ... to here </game>). 2.- Once that the program check all the blocks in the xml, then is needed reorganize them by alphabetical order according to the description tag/label inside each block. 3.- Export the new xml and thats all. So finally, I don't know if this program exist. If someone knows about a program that can make this, please, say me.
  10. Hello all, Can anyone help me and point me in the right direction where I might be able to download myself an up to date Commodore Amiga XML that is populated with the year, genre etc, of each game? I have tried Hyperlist and many other sites but I can't seem to find anything. Many thanks in advance!

    Some of stuff you can do create hyperspin or nointro dat from rom folder create mamlist.xml from rom folder copy roms listed in nointro or any supported xml\dat\xml format to desired rom folder rename your roms from any supported xml\dat\txt file and copy them to desired folder merge two supported xml\dat\txt file even info will be merged copy rom media file with game list from compatible xml\dat\txt much more compatible format are nonintrodat.dat (parent\clone xml) or standard gamelist.xml hyperspin.xml(there is custom one,you can generate one as hyperspin_retrofe.xml) retrofe_include.txt (simple txt file with rom names) mameinfo.dat (only works in extract function) mamehistory.dat (only works in extract function) mamelist.xml So What is this? convert from compatible xml\txt\dat game database format to xml\txt\dat game database, extract story files from gamelist.xml mamhistory.dat or mameinfo.dat combine or merge two compatible xml\txt\dat and get one file with updated games and info copy rom listed in compatible xml\dat\txt from source rom folder to desired folder\rename and crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files scan and create xml\dat\txt from your roms folder,crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files Requirement: Tested on windows 10 x64,should run on any windows +7 os (might run on win xp but not tested) you 'll need at least one xml\txt\dat compatible file,check below in Note section How to use Simply choose the function from drop menu,click on input\output buttons,choose file type from filter drop menu in openfiledialog window,remember always provide the right file type,hyperspin need hyperspin file,nointro.dat need nointro dat file ....... click doi it combine function explained: this tool is created to merge info from compatible xml dat xml database format.xml based on name or crc tag,the result is xml\txt\dat file with updated info added roms name and info from both file Associate function explained: associate function,input1 button should be any compatible xml\txt\dat,mediaroot should be the root folder of your rom media,example: nes media folder contain folders like snaps,title,manual,video snaps ... etc,this function will copy these media according to the name(or crc) in input1 source file Some Tips: Combine Nointro.dat+gamelist.xml=>resultfile saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml combine resultfile.xml+hyperspin.xml with rating tag=>final_result.xml saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml put the final_result.xml in RetroFE\meta\hyperlist rename it to your prefered system,make sure the name is matching the collection name in retrofe collectio dir delete meta.db from retrofe dir launch retrofe and have fun ]NOTE: Important don't choose the wrong file always feed the right one check compatible file format above for more info the combine function priorties the info from input1 button when using crc as comparation,that means if you have the same game but the name in the first is different from the second input file,the first will be considered how to get gamelist.xml use scraper to get gamelist.xml for your prefered system(mame,sega,snes...) can be found https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/scraper put scraper inside your roms folder,ru cmd or use bat(recommended) put these commands: scraper.exe -add_not_found -console_src="gdb" -use_filename=true -download_images=false -no_thumb PAUSE now copy the generated gamelist.xml file from your rom folder to the program folder Contacts: http://emulator-organizer-f.forumotion.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Emulators-Organizer/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty6F9RyhFdg done enjoy Best regard Croser

    I did some work on this database a while go, and I had big plans - I was going to have a 'players' field, a 'developer' field, and all kinds of other stuff. But I've scrapped that, because HyperSpin in it's current state can't even utilize any of these fields. Instead, I've opted to create custom XMLs. At the moment, I have a 'Two Players' and 'Multiplayer' XML finished - and they are quite accurate, as I compiled the data directly from the backs of the boxes, that clearlly state how many players the game has. Please note that this is for *english games only*. I found the Japanese games too frustrating to navigate menus, and I don't like compiling data from 3rd party sources, so that's that. Otherwise, hyphens have been replaced with colons in the description field. The manufacturer field now accurately reflects the name of the publisher. It makes no sense to have the name of some obscure, uncredited developer as the name in the description, when we have nice box arts that clearly tell you who published the game. The publisher should be the standard for all console/handheld systems, at least in this version of HyperSpin. An alternative of course is to put both - developer/publisher - and that's always an option. But at the least, the publisher should always be there. Prior to my work, this database was very flawed in respect to the manufacturer field. Sometimes the developer was used, sometimes the publisher was used, sometimes the data was completely wrong. Special thanks goes to JSinn for having a complete set of box backs for me to use to compile the data for the two player and multiplayer XMLs.

  13. Hey Guys, I'm rather new to Hyperspin but I have been sucessful in adding systems and roms for the most part. I have run into a problem recently in regards to database xml files. So when I'm on the homescreen where the consoles are on the wheel, when I click a certain console it will not load. I click and it goes black for quick second and returns to the homescreen. Thats in indication that the database is present but it will not load the game list for some reason. I have the database xml in the appropriate folder as well as the roms, media and emulators installed. Still no sucess in loading the Playstation or Dreamcast consoles. On another note there are instances where I'm able to click the colsole and it loads a few games on the list but not all. I have the roms installed in the appropriate folder but hyperspin is only displaying a few on the list. The database xml that is for the console has all the games listed but when I open the colsole in hypersin the list of games is limited to a few. If someone has had a similar issue or could give assistance it would greatly be appreciated.

  18. Im new in this retro world, since one month ago maybe. I learn faster and Im notice some deficiencies concerning to the *.xml´s. Why nobody create a program that takes the crc from the roms , contrast that crc with an xml file that have all the info about that rom (like name, description, clone, crc, manufacturer, year, genre, rating, enabled) and make this live of renaming xml´s more easy? Im editing *.xml´s with my hands one rom by one and is really painfull and boring. Im start to think that i will finish like in at least 10 years, being a no lifer of course. So if someone is interesting, im going to write my ideas here, with examples, hoping that someone will create this powerful tool someday. How should the program be? Must take the crc from roms in a folder (for MAME and similar will take the crc number from the zip, for others systems will take the crc from the rom inside the zip). Once the program collect all thats crc numbers, will contrast them with an xml file or a info file or dat (but its important that xml, info and dat have really op info about that roms). The program will say something like this: "Ok, if i found the same crc number of this roms in the xml, then i will fill all thats tags in that block with my op info about that specific rom". Then the program will start to scan all thats roms and for contrast them with the xml will do the next: "Ok, i collected all the crc numbers in the folder Atari 2600 roms, now im going to check if this first rom with crc number 58010BE3 matches with some tags <crc></crc> inside the xml". <game name="Asteroid Fire (Europe)" index="" image=""> <description></description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc>58010BE3</crc> <manufacturer></manufacturer> <year></year> <genre></genre> <rating></rating> <enabled></enabled> </game> "Oh wow, here we go. I find this match inside the tags <game name="Asteroid Fire (Europe)" index="" image="".......<crc>58010BE3</crc>........</game> . So now im go to fill with really op info the other tags that accompany to crc tag and are inside of the same block <game name>...</game>". Then the program will ask you an amazing question: "With what info do you want that i fill the tags?: For HyperSpin (and then you will have this roms perfectly named with the media in this launcher). For No-Intro (if you prefer the No-Intro version names, i can do it, even i can rename the media for your HyperSpin with No-Intro names if you want). For Atari 2600 Vcs Collection HunterV11. Etc., etc., etc... Then we select for example option 1 and Boom! : <game name="Asteroid Fire (Europe)" index="" image=""> <description>Asteroid Fire (Europe)</description> <cloneof></cloneof> <crc>58010BE3</crc> <manufacturer>Homevision - Gem International Corp.</manufacturer> <year>1983</year> <genre>Shoot-&apos;Em-Up</genre> <rating>Other - NR (Not Rated)</rating> <enabled>Yes</enabled> </game> Awesome! In just a few clics we have hundreds of roms with a perfect correspondence to works with HyperSpin or other frontend or whatever . Of course this is only an idea that can be developed much more.

    I've corrected the 'manufacturer' meta data to reflect the developer/publisher accurately. I've also added the following games: Dragon Slayer V - Sorcerian (Japan) (Translated En) Nyancle Racing (Japan) (Translated En) Xak - The Art of Visual Stage (Japan) (Translated En) Xak II - Rising of the Redmoon (Japan) (Translated En) Ys III - Wanderers from Ys (Japan) (Translated En) Also please note there is a game in the database called Ys III - Wanderers from Ys (Japan) (Translated En) (Disk 1) (Alt for Tiger Quarry crash). You will need the Japanese version of the disk for only the Tiger Quarry area, otherwise, the game will crash when you enter. This game isn't actually worth playing if you ask me, as the SNES version and TG16 versions are far superior, but it exists, so it's in the database. Changed hyphens to colons in the descriptions. Final notes - I realized I didn't follow the existing name scheme of "Disk 1 of 4" and just opted to use "Disk 1" on my new additions. I've already got everything set up on my end, and I am uploading my work as a courtesy - but if this bugs you, by all means, drop by the development thread, and upload a corrected database for others to use.
