  1. Emumovies Chat

    Well that makes sense :) sometimes i surprise myself with stupid questions lol
  2. PSP Status

    @Circo I know you have PSP ongoing but if you get a min could you drop a list of what's captured. Have a little audit going on and wanna work to the same song sheet if possible. Any db your working to would be a super bonus:)
  3. Emumovies Chat

    I followed a couple of peeps, not showing up. any tips
  4. Hyperspin website down. Need new version.

    Is it an upgrade to the site or a problemo @Circo?
  5. This will be an epic task and one I will watch with anticipation. out of interested will it be done to a specific MAME version database?
  6. I have not grabbed much recently but thanks for the heads up....
  7. Sync and FTP different totals

    Trying to build my Amiga video set and sync got me 1368 off the latest Hyperspin forum database matched WHD romset of 2277 games roughly. The FTP has 1700 videos. Is the mismatch down to sync not matching some of the romname version tags do you think?
  8. MAME Software list media naming

    Thanks there's a few up already. if anyone has mess console system artwork/videos named in the MAME naming convention feel free to share.
  9. MAME Software list media naming

    Yeah was just talking to agent47 about scripts. he suggested I make a key file that references the short name to the media name then use a script. i could make the key file but script wise have no clue
  10. MAME Software list media naming

    Not come across anyone that has done it yet. It's retroarch MAME for uptodate MAME or mame4droid which is based on 0.139. although I did log cat what was happening when Hyperspin launches the roms and I did see the -r command but it's backed into the code. i still think it could be possible but don't have the skills. If it was possible it would be awesomeness.
  11. I have been setting up Hyperspin Android and MAME softwarlist systems like Atari5200, Bally Astrocade and Neo Geo CD. the above system don't have a standalone emu so everything has to be named the same as mame hash files requires them. @Circo is it ok to put packs on the FTP to help android users with this long winded renaming issue? i have started with a Bally Astrocade example it's located In the upload/_other/thatman84_Android specifics not decided yet
  12. Hi all, Just spreading the word on a good bit of fun organised by @Boohiss (hope that's you :) ) We convinced him into running a bonus HighScore comp to end 2016. He picked a cracker with the NES Nintendo World Championship game of 1990 Check the thread and scoreboard for details at http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/29741-hyperscore-challenge-47-nintendo-world-championships-1990-nintendo-nes/?_fromLogin=1 If your not a Hyperspin member Still give it a crack (signup there if you want it's a good community forum) Post your score here if you like I will try to pass them on. boohiss's original post HyperScore Challenge #47's game is.... Nintendo World Championships 1990 (Nintendo NES) Deadline for this competition: December 29th, 2016 at 10 PM CST http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/cst Note: To begin, press player 2 start! Then play using player 1 controls. Nintendo World Championships 1990 is an exceedingly rare American game for the NES, with only 116 cartridges in existence. The cartridges were used for the Nintendo World Championships held during 1990 in 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada. 90 gray cartridges were given to the ninety finalists, and 26 gold cartridges were given away in a Nintendo Power contest. Both versions usually sell for several thousand dollars on eBay. It was not released outside America. This cartridge was indeed used in the World Championships, and it features the three games: Super Mario Bros., Rad Racer, and Tetris. The player had a total of 6 minutes 21 seconds to play all three games, but this can be changed by DIP switches on the cartridge. The player starts out in Super Mario Bros. They are given 99 lives, and are required to collect 50 coins in the shortest time possible. After completing this, the game moves on to Rad Racer where the player has to complete the first track, again in the shortest time possible. Finally, they move on to Tetris and have to get the highest score possible with the remaining time they have left. Rules: 1) How you place in the top 10 will net you points towards being the 2016 HyperScore Gamer of the Year! http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/topic/13809-2016-hyperscore-gamer-of-the-year/ 2) The winner, and two others from the top 10 chosen at random, will get to pick games for a future poll for the competition! I will message all three people informing them they get to choose a potential game! Also, every other competition, one lucky person of the three will get to pick the category of the poll! This means a specific genre, manufacturer, year, etc. This also means that every other competition will not have any category for the poll. The polls will alternate with a theme and a free for all. If I do not get a response within a few days, I will pick a game in your place to get the poll up, so please respond in a timely manner. The poll will be for the competition directly after the one that has just started. All polls have the competition number in them to avoid any confusion. 3) Please use the correct rom for the competition. It is listed on the top of this post after the game name. Parent roms will usually be selected for convenience. For console games, you are free to use any official rom dump (no hacks, homebrew, etc.) 4) Use only 1 credit. There are no continues, and once you get a game over you must start over from scratch. Console games will consist of one "set of lives" or playing until you get your first "game over". Please make sure to read the thread for each individual competition in case there are any special rules needed! 5) You must submit a screen shot or photo of your high score in a post here. MAME's default screenshot key is F12, which can be changed to any other key you like in its settings. Photos from a camera/phone are fine too. You may submit a high score as many times as you wish. Your highest personal score will be the final score submitted. Only scores you achieved during the competition count (no high scores from last year, etc.!). 6) No save states, autofire, hacks, or cheating of ANY kind (on your honor). 7) No special dip switch settings. Please use all default settings for these. If you've never touched them or have no idea what they are, you are good to go! To make sure you are on default if you are unsure, delete the rom's INI, NVRAM, and CFG files inside MAME folders to be certain. For console games, please leave everything on default settings unless otherwise noted in the challenge's thread. 8) Highest score wins. 9) Deadline is TWO WEEKS from the start of the competion! This should give people more time to participate and rack up their scores! Please post your score before the end date and time! This will be enforced, so please, no late entries. Please note the timezone I am using is CST http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zones/cst . This time zone will be used the entire year! 10) Have fun!
  13. I don't have many sets of roms but for the purposes on running my setup on Android it's better to be unzipped. Except MAME. Or until I learn an android emu can deal with compressed files
  14. Hyperspin forum offline
