Hi all,

 

I am Jason from Murrumbateman, New South Wales, Australia. I am an old codger that played Pacman and Galaga when they had just been released! I signed up a few days after watching a video by SimplyAustin about the state of HyperSpin. Have started using it on my arcade machine. My arcade machine is a hand built, Galaga-inspired, upright machine. It took me years to build because I kept "testing" it rather than finishing it. Now I only have the marquee to do to finish off that project. I get a kick out of playing old games with my kids (Galaga, Raiden, Puzzle Bobble, Bowling etc) and also love watching friends freak out when they realise it's not just Galaga, but a machine that has ALL of the games they used to play back in the day. I also love when it visiting folks realise how HARD and unforgiving some of the earlier games are - no "continue" options, just get good at the game.

 

Cheers,

Jaso

Great to hear that guys.  This is a awesome scene to be in although once your in you are hooked.  Glad that my vids helped you all out and gave you a taste as to what is on offer and what can be done along with how to do it.  Lots more to  come :D  There are loads of people out there though doing stuff behind the scenes that make it all possible, I hope one day to give them more recognition :D

 

As for that work Cellsius, its epic!  Make sure you share more of the art as I am very interested into what you have cooking there :D  Looks as if the Padawan has become the Master ;)

Hi all,  I am from Brisbane Australia.  In the process of planning an arcade cabinet build.  At this stage I am leaning towards a Vewlix clone with a 32" screen.

Nice choice... I like the look of those.  Clean and they do not take up much room :D

Hi guys. Richard here, new member. I run a local hobby-business on the east coast of Canada that restores and rents arcade machines - got about a dozen of them now, 8 on location. 

I recently acquired an older desktop, and am building a personal rig running Hyperspin with Mame and RetroArch. It's got lighted buttons, fight sticks, and is built into a cool old cabinet. I'm currently nabbing the last few MAME videos I need, and setting up my KADE USB Control Boards to map buttons. Hoping to have it altogether and built in the next week. :)

Hello EmuMovies!  I'm finally posting my "Hello World" message.

 

 

I grew up with a good number of these systems, but many moves and housing changes have meant that a lot of my old hardware has been lost, broken, or is otherwise gone.  So, emulation lets me relive tons of memories without having all my old hardware.

 

 

Thanks to everyone who makes this community possible.  I'll do my part as well!!

My name is John.  I've been in the Army for 20 years and I was in the Delta Dawgpound so I was known as PernDawg for a few years.  I nerded that to P3rnD@wg on my name tapes for Iraq and it was a conversation starter for other computer enthusiasts.  I hope that I don't upset anyone here in the first few hours as I try to make 50 posts to save a bit of money.  Once I learn this HyperSpin / EmuMovies process, I hope to help others.  I plan to put a signature on my posts after I get a little time.  If you know where the rules are for the signature please share it with me.

Pleasure to meet mate :D  I was Army too until last year, although 12 and a half years for me. I was LEWT and I loved it, but now its all coffee and cakes for me mmmmmm :D

 

HyperSpin is a bit daunting at first as it doesnt make sense off the bat.  But once you got the main bit setup and working, added a few systems it just clicks and before you know it, you will be pro.  Let me know if you get stuck mate, happy to help whenever I can :D

Hola, my name is Nic.  Just started getting into emulation about a week ago, so I'm still a bit green, but I work in IT so I have at least a bit of a head start.  I'm currently messing with HyperSpin and also building myself a cocktail arcade machine with a hopefully Jamma 60-1/HyperSpin PC combo.  :)

      I've uploaded a new modular RetroFE system to the EmuMovies FTP site, at /Official/Retro FE Media Pack
      While it contains a README.txt as well, a bit of explanation:
      - The RetroFE base xxx.zip file contains the base RetroFE installation for version xxx, with the latest executable. It's not very different from what you can find in the download section at RetroFE, except that it does not have the (nearly empty) Sega Genesis and Arcade collection.
      - The MAME 0.yyy emulator.zip file contains the MAME emulator installation for version yyy. All the collections currently in the set use MAME as their emulator, and the launchers all point to this installation.
      - The rest of the zip files contain collections, as complete as I have them, with launchers for Linux and Windows. Just unzip them in the RetroFE directory.
      - The emulators directory contains the MAME artwork (bezels), which can you simply drag and drop as a whole into your RetroFE directory. The MAME installation mentioned above will automatically use them.

      Basically, all you need to do is take the base (or use your own), unzip the MAME installation if you want, unzip the collections you want, add them to your Main collection's menu.txt file, add your games, and enjoy. The sets are mostly based on HyperSpin 1.0 XML files, so finding the corresponding games should be easy.
