Rx,
For SNES Boxarts:
Just go back and download the "emu movies" ones and replace them with your "black bar" ones.
(They should be the same, minus the black bars)

If you do this, you should be golden. smile.gif
EDIT: Or, check out the hyperspin stuff, of course.

Cool... I'll do that. (I didn't remember where I even got the boxart originally)

You don't know of any higher quality images, do you? Hyperspin?

If anybody could get me the hyperspin boxart for SNES I'd be mighty appreciative.

Well been a bit busy lately...

Added in the seperate Box/Cart art timer. Works like a charm.

Added a seperate "Volume Control Menu". It can be accessed by pressing "Y" in the "In Game Options" menu, or from the "Game Configuration" menu. It lets the user set the volume for in game sound, mp3_cdda, cdda, and mp3 music player from 0-100.

Autoconfiguration is now working. No more having to manually configure most games! Took a bit of tweaking around but it works now. Coming soon to most emu's near you!

Synopsis of a game can be viewed from the "In Game Options" screen.

Tightened up the Synopsis code. So what does this mean? More work for you RessX.. sad.gif Sorry.. But now it should be able to do a search on a partial filename for CD games, something I had to remove previously. So probably all the synopsis' are gonna have to be cleaned up. Here is a quick rundown of what is most likely gonna cause issues in a synopsis files.

The code expects three single *'s to identify the start of a game entry, the end of the headline, and the end of the description. So it pretty much relies on a "three count" to tell it where it is. The problem is caused by using astericks in other areas of the text. For example..

*
*****letter*****
*

is fine.. But if you have

*
*****letter*****
*
*****letter*****
*

It will get confused. This is easily fixed by removing the asterick inbetween.

*
*****letter*****
*****letter*****
*

Astericks on a line by themselves with a space ( "* ") will cause it to be confused as well. This is fixed easily with a search and replace.

When I did a run thru of the PCE synopsis, those seemed to be the only issue. There was another bug I fixed in regards to long lines with no spaces.

Hopefully these "tweaks" will not create any other unforseen issues. But I wanted to tighten up the code so when I do get around to using the Synopsis for game selection there will be less room for weird problems cropping up.

Just let me know which emu's you'd like a compile of the new code with. I was gonna try to send Mednafen_NES yesterday so we could see about doing a non-beta release, but kinda ran out of time.

Still have some other cleaning up I wanna do in regards to selecting specific file types (like skin configurations, etc). But for the most part everything appears to be good.

Upload sites all suck right now. I think it's the man trying to make sure my Xtras don't get out cool.gif


I'd like to see the NES beta first madmab. Interested in seeing what changes you've made and how much more work this is going to create on my end for the synopsis stuff.



I'm trying to get somebody on the hyperspin boards to share the 600+ images they've cleaned up. I have already integrated an old pack of 200 he did a while back. I probably kept around 50% of his images. Hopefully he gets my PM and sends the rest my way and I'll get them all in there. After that I'll use the emumovies artwork to replace the ones I put bars on.



I'm trying to find whatever I can to keep me busy. I know I have plenty to do still, but it's mainly smaller things and tidying up that need to be done all over the place as opposed to a large task with direction like synopsis creation. So I'm kinda all over the place while I wait on Gameboy video creation, Generic Boxart creation, a few new emus and Dynamic skins and some other things I'm waiting on.

Later,

Sure no problem.. Mednafen_NES was gonna be the first one.

Forgot to mention I had to shrink the size of the NES manuals to be able to view them within the Media Browser. Not sure how much I shrinked them... 10-20%?? But it's real nice to be able to flip thru them with the white and black buttons, as well as it remembering where I was.

Just did a quick run through of the code to remove (hopefully) all instances where the game select directory would get reset (like when managing save states, etc).

No it isn't. It's been more than 24 hours I'm still trying to upload the last megabyte of a file. torch.gif
Rapidshare is OK, though.

I think that upload is broke man... hate to tell you. You may be better off doing it again.

I wish megaupload would fix whatever problem it's been having. It's by far my favorite filestoring service and I'd always recommend to everyone to use it until the last month or so. It's just funny that some of the other ones are having problems at the same time. I wonder if something is up?





There are a few new videos to make for Game Gear and NES at romhaking. Aeon Genesis and somebody else just released a translation for the "lost" Lunar game for the Game Gear. What a way to wrap up the new year. We got the only untranslated Lunar game and we got Brandish 2 for the SNES. cool.gif



I'm really kicking some ass here otherwise... Needed to take a step back and get things organized and stage for my next modes of attack. I just added 9 new games for the Atari 2600, including synopsis artwork and vids. 7 of them were homebrew that madmab let me know about and two of them are great little Montezuma hacks which turn your character into Lara Croft. There's the Classic Outfit hack in green, and the Modern Outfit with her newer brown outfit. That hack was created by our very own Excalibur and he also provided a great Boxart and Cart shot for it as well. Thanks Ex happy.gif


I've got about 12 SNES and NES games yet to add, and about 40 or so hacks for the Atari 2600 and 7800 to go through. I figure a lot of those hacks won't be worthwhile though and will get cut (I've got about 30 or more Pac-Man hacks to go through and only the Exceptional ones are going to make it).



Other than that, I'm just trying to knock down the smaller systems while I'm waiting on people to send their stuff my way.

Later,
~Rx


EDIT:

Here's the boxart for Ex's hack...

I think I know what the problem is: there are too many users using it! I have a premium account for a month and I should be getting good download speeds, but it is running at about half capacity at times. Therefore, the free users would get the short end of the stick because the priorities would be towards the premium users. Everyone must be utilizing all of the file sharing sites right before the holidays. laugh.gif

Forgot to mention that when I'm done this week the emulator is gonna look for "skin configurations" in the "configurations" directory of the skin itself.

Awesome happy.gif

I just spoke with a gentleman named dpar over at hyperspin and he hooked me up with the complete US SNES boxart set that he cleaned up himself. Much higher quality stuff in here than anything else I've seen for the system besides the stuff we already grabbed from thecoverproject.

This is going to look great.


Still waiting on dnyce to send me the NES boxart upgrades and still trying to find good gameboy (regular) images since all the ones I have are tiny and dirty compared to the other sets I've completed.

We didn't have a boxart for this prototype and I felt that it deserved its own special box to make it stand out even more among all the other generally lame SNES prototypes out there....

Yeah... I know. My PC artwork skills are crap and so is the M$ Paint program I use, but I feel that it speaks well to the laughably rough and unfinished game itself. cool.gif

Huh.... I must have delusions about my own comedic skills. That pic had me rolling when I made it... laugh.gif

Anyways... SNES boxart is completely updated. A majority of it is from thecoverproject and hyperspin now. There are some US/EU images which are still smaller quality, but that was usually because he had a very custom box or the colors were too washed out to use. I removed the black bars at the top and bottom of any boxes that didn't get replaced with better ones. All of gilles' generic boxarts are included too, so every game has great looking box representation.

Also, I revamped the "Current Progress" part of the thread to reflect my own personal "to do" list. I won't be including the numbers for videos for consoles until they're released since a lot of them are added to piecemeal. This should clear things up though and always let people know where we stand when it's updated.

Here's the new Current Progress for all systems...
