Hyperspin team,

Thanks for the hard work. Getting this up and running must have been an amazing amount of work. I'm not sure why the community get mad about your posts at times when clearly you are doing more for this community than 99% of us. A big thank you from me. I hope more people will thank you as well.

So far I'm not impressed.  I wanted to be - really, REALLY wanted to be.  But it won't even run on my system.  It just sits there.  If I open it again while it's still running I get a black screen.  That's it.

The "HyperHQ" thing also doesn't seem to store the settings you put into it.

Come over to our forms and we can help get you up and running.  The blank screen tells me that you don't have something setup correctly. 

Also, HQ isn't complete yet and is a work in progress.  For now you will need to manually edit the database and settings files.

Hey Peale

Definitely drop by the HS forum and post over there. Black screen could mean a couple of things and I am sure we can figure out the problem.

Is it possible to use HyperSpin with older versions of MAME? i.e. V0.84?

It's beta so perhaps you should reserve judgement until you actually get it running first? Even with months of private beta testing you simply can't test every system configuration you may encounter in a public release.

I don't have a final judgement yet, of course.  But with all the documentation pretty much saying "download and run" that's what I was expecting.  Maybe not getting the emulators running yet, but getting *something* on screen...that's what I would have expected.

I'm wondering if Peale is using one of his OLD systems that has an ATI 8mb Rage in it......

No, using my desktop just to mess around with it.  And according to the forums, I'm not the only person having this issue, so I feel a bit better - it's not just me.

While we have tried to test with many different computer configs, it is virtually impossible to test with all configs. 

The downloads should work correctly "out of the box", so if anyone is having an issue than it is probably a config that we were unable to test.  Right now we have a couple things that we are looking into that could be causing this issue...

I was looking at some of the HS databases and some of them have been ripped from GameEx. I don't remember anyone asking me permission to use them since I helped write the software to scrape the data. I'm not overly bothered but you would think it would be common courtesy to ask first  :dunno

Well done on your new FE.  ;D    :applaud: I have not slammed it in any way so why so hostile about MaLa ??? 

Yes, MaLa is in it's own 'Freaking forum'. I spent hours moving 99% of all the mala threads into it from this software section. One by one.

So why lash out?  ???  Maybe I am taking it the wrong way but the Forum was offered here by Saint so what is the problem?  ???

Where exactly in the GameEx folder are these databases that you speak of?  Are these contained in the .mdb files?

Edit: Nevermind, I just installed Axcess and I see the data.  I can guarantee that the HS databases were not ripped from GameEx, most of them were created by hand.  If they were ripped from GameEx then we would have taken way more info than what we have been working from.  Your databases have info that we were talking about implementing but could not find the necessary information posted.  We did not know that your files contained this info especially with consoles... Your database files are an excellent source of info, especially for console genres!

Sorry, but you took that post completely out of context...  I think Mala, out of any FE's out there, deserves it's own forum here.  It is very widely used and a great front end.  I was just merely pointing out the number of threads that specific frontends were mentioned in...  My post was definitely not a stab at Mala in any way.  The thread was closed because it wasn't the official release announcement and the thread title wasn't necessary.

You can rest assured Headkaze that none of the databases used in HyperSpin were taken from anything you made.  I made those by hand as I downloaded each individual boxart by hand when collecting the data.  I with my own mouse did a copy and paste via either GameFAQ's or if there was no info which was rare from Mobi.  I did it this way to ensure each and every single game in our system has its own genre and manufacturer.  I didnt even scrape the data to ensure that it was fully complete.  So there was no common courtesy needed to ask you for anything.  Sorry if you think that it came from your stuff.  I take pride in providing full complete databases and dont want anything to do with using anything anyone else made for their own FE's in a matter which I do not recieve permission.

Loadman: Not sure where all that came from, but I personally have no issue with your or your FE and think its a great project.  There might have been some animosity about people being mad about HS threads, and smack talking.  I try not to take part in those conversations, but people have even personally said things to me about HS threads and I think I only made one thread about it and dont bump other threads at all relating to it yet theres still people saying things to me anyways.

Looking through the databases the data looked the same to me but if you say you collected it by hand then I believe you. Must have been the fact you used Moby that made it look the same.

Anyway just got a look at HS finally and must say I'm very impressed! I love the transitions and effects you've got going. Something that I've been working on in Razor as well but certainly don't have as many different styles just yet. Very time consuming just getting the Flash style graphics engine written from scratch so I hope to work on some of that fun stuff later down the track.

Also kudos to all the theme creators, they look really professional and well made. What can I say, it's the greatest animated FE by leaps and bounds! Makes me wonder if Razor is worth finishing now  :'( Anyway great stuff!

BTW Can I just suggest that you run in fullscreen at the desktop resolution by default. When I ran it on my dual monitor setup it was in a window in the middle of the two screens. Didn't take me long to find the settings to switch to full screen though. You really got that graphics caching working well too, something I've been having a few issues with in Direct3D.

Here's to the future success of HyperSpin; now I can finally believe the Hype! :cheers:

Guys, please stop the pissing match in this thread....  We don't really care who created what application to create the databases as HyperSpin has not used them in the first place. 

I looked over the databases and they look like a great resource for the emulation communities.  Several applications could benefit from these databases.  It is obvious that people have put a good amount of time into creating these and there is no possible way that a single person took on such of a task.  It is evident that each of you put in equal time of their share into such a project.  We really don't need the public bickering and whining as you both are showing not so good sides to the community right now...

Ok, enough... I really don't care.  I just find it silly that we have access to these wonderful databases that was obviously not created by a single one person.  However, the parties involved with the creation cannot get along well enough to let the community freely use these wonderful files for their own projects.

Honestly, I've had enough bickering between FE creators, database creators and just about everyone on these forums.  We all have a dedication to this hobby or else we wouldn't be here in the first place... Why can't we all just get along for the better of the community?

this thread is about the Hyperspin release. We WILL keep this discussion on topic. Airing of dirty laundry from other sources will not be tolerated and treated as thread crapping. All parties will cease that are involved and consider this your warning. Please carry on in a civilized manner pertaining to the release.

The little downside is you need to registered to download the torrent.... Not all would do that to trying a application.

I Different try this out, even the sound might disrupt to much, since my machine is not in a gameroom or such. But that is not deficient a HyperSpin fault at all!!!

good work and good theme idea is all I can say.

Just wanted to chip and say congratulations on a very significant first Beta. Incredibly impressive.

Job well done to all.

It ran perfectly first time on my system, and only took a couple of seconds for me to configure for a hi def full screen res and MAME only.

EDIT: Posted this before reading the thread, and I missed all what seems to have gone on.  :cheers:

Why will future themes not be allowed to contain video?

Themes can/will contain video, but we don't want people distributing the videos with their uploaded themes.  Circo has worked his ass off creating the EmuMovies collections and he gives people access to his FTP based on donations.  We do not want people freely distributing his work along with their themes in respect to Circo.  However, with this being said Circo at EmuMovies will be hosting the converted video files for HyperSpin on the FTP and also his torrents.

Ironically enough, one of the reason I registered with emumovies.com was because circo was giving away his work for free.  I might have thought twice if he were to give access a la carte per membership fee.

Speaking of giving it away, I'm torrenting HS now.  Can't wait to see how it runs!  Any plans for Sega console themes yet?

Can't seem to crack that ultra complex 'image verification' upon registration so I'm guessing I won't be able to ever figure the actual software!  :D

Oh well, looks like fun...

Had a chance to play with it a little bit last night. All the game intros are very nicely done, impressive. I'm looking forward to getting it set up as an alternative FE on the machine. I'm guessing future releases will add more game screens, anything else? I don't even use the vast majority of the systems listed.... but it makes me want to now.

Future releases are going to be bug fixes and new functionality....  Themes are completely different than the front end.  On the HS forums we will have an area where people can upload and download individual themes.  The theming community will be big and we are hoping to get a lot of people interested in creating graphics and themes.

I was hoping to see "genre" themes... or at least "company" themes.  This looks great,  but with the limited number of themes I doubt it will find a home on my cab for a long time.

I noticed alot of the really nice themes are done in Flash and overlayed as an .swf file. This would take a long time to do all the themes of this quality. So I can see why there needs to be alot of theme creators. I wonder if we can clone Billpa? His work is amazing  :cheers:
