If you have any issues with Pipe (CLI) in EDS, try Pipe or CLI with CBR checked instead. I also forgot to say during the video that you can also display marquee art for other systems/consoles. If I had gone to NES games, for example, you would have seen NES game wheel art on my marquee as I scrolled through games. Whatever image you want to display will display, as long as you set it up correctly." Sevenseal's video 1 (Artwork Setup): Sevenseal's video 2 (Artwork Video Setup): ------------------------- QUICK OVERVIEW ------------------------- There are 6 possible customisable displays (styles) within Hyper Marquee. 1.

Digital Text: Display a text file from a folder link or wild cards from Hyperlist/Gameinfo. 3. HyperSpin theme: Display a HyperSpin Theme. Limitation: It only supports images and videos (flv/MP4), no sounds, no animation. You can also create you own Marquee Themes using HyperTheme from Hyperspin. 4. Time Elapsed: Display the time elapsed of your gaming time 5. HiToText: Display some MAME game High Score. (using external HiToText app.) 6.

Share yours display for inspiration! (Left screen represents HyperSpin with text overlay from HyperMarquee (see 1&2 player + game rating) and right side a custom Marquee setup.) (using DotMatrixDisplay Shader and Outlined Font & Images leveraging on GameInfo & HyperList fields wild cards) Very nice Artwork from mmg1Design exploiting HyperMarquee possibilities (using font: Triple Dot Digital-7) - applying glow effect and under font from HyperMarquee internal features. Some editor capability features; Using both outlined and font text brush. Plus background image using blur shader and Text using Telescopic Blur effect. Not bad isn't? Improved Graphical User Interface using brush user friendly tool. Shader and brush can be applied to all text, image and video! High score can disappear after a certain amount of time of your choice to leave marquee artwork alone... (like any other windows) ----------------------------------------- Future Development... ----------------------------------------- - Control Panel Viewer capability within Hyper Marquee is under development right now. - Screen capture to replicate game playing on marquee - HM/EDS: Providing real-time download for missing artworks, Hyperlist & GameInfo when selecting a game. (optional feature under consideration) - Providing 3D support to display cartridges, cabinets and more should be considered next year. - EDS: Providing utilization statistics (graphs and charts) should be considered next year. - Add HM display container to avoid launching one .exe per display type.
