Hey Guys

Quick update on why nothing has dropped for a few weeks, basically the caddy holding the hard drive crashed, so we had to transplant the hard drive in a donor caddy , which we did, then started archiving, twice the machine doing the archiving locked up between 70 and 80% …. so we broke the packs down smaller, and still had a few lock ups, until the machine died – us thinking it were the file cluster, when infact the 5 year old machine (our "packer and par" machine) had just had enough and hit "EOL" (end of life!)

So one new i7 machine later and a new caddy – the packs are now archiving into multi rar sets (much quicker than usual!!) and on their way to the various servers in the sky ready for release.

Its worth noting that there are FOUR OFFICIAL ROM PACKS remaining…

  • [8tb].Hyperspin.PC.Fully.Loaded-004-ROMs-014-PiPiggies
  • [8tb].Hyperspin.PC.Fully.Loaded-004-ROMs-015-PiPiggies
  • [8tb].Hyperspin.PC.Fully.Loaded-004-ROMs-016-PiPiggies
  • [8tb].Hyperspin.PC.Fully.Loaded-004-ROMs-017-PiPiggies

All these ROM Packs contain PS2 Titles, (pack 1, A-F, 2 G-N, 3 O-S, 4 T-Z) so if you are NOT going to be running PS2 then you need not bother downloading these. (Its worth noting that Members have already started seeing the above packs appear on the Members FTP sites.)

COMMUNITY PACKS

Once the official public packs are released and the entire drive is considered "OUT THERE" we shall be working with the community to produce some

  • Fixes
  • Add-ons
  • Upgrades
  • Updates

We will also be putting the entire drive "online" and browsable – whilst nothing can be downloaded, it will be a live representation of the drive in its original state, working through the fixes and such to its completed state.

We will be looking for help on this, people to take charge of certain tasks and totally BOSS them….For example people who want to complete the media packs, complete the ROM packs, get extra emulators up and showing, sort controller issues and so on….

Basically we want EVERY SINGLE PERSON to have a complete, up-to-date , fully configured drive that is considered "awesome"….

HERE IS WHERE IT GETS FUN

Once we (the community) deem the drive "complete" anything released after that can surely only be considered "an add-on" – so we then encourage everyone to familiarise themselves with the workings of the drive – because YOU (as a community) are responsible for it … All the PiPiggies did was release an old drive and make it accessible FOR FREE, all Arcade Punks did was provide the links, and a community resource to make it yours, and now it is…

THE FUTURE IS OURS….

Once we start these last few pack downloads, the Forum will change to accommodate the community builds, edits, add ons and changes, we would LOVE for YOU to get involved, drop us a message below in this very forum, to let us know if you are on-board…..

Regards

Ninja Uk, -=CYD=- and the rest of the team!

Hello, i already have the retromanicus ps2 full pack (almost 4TB) is this the same (i have it in one stand alone harddrive ? )?

If yes, do you have the media folder in the media our in this pack (because the file names)?

Thanks a lot you work it have been so helpfull.

I´m having problems with the controls (mine is xbox 360 chinese type), im not a pro in this area so im lokking for some tutorials to learn, the change. i think will be a good idea create a topic "" how to change controls configuration for each emulator (311 what a work ? )"" !!!

I have the same basic retro is for share not to sell, i have some friends that send me by mail hdds and i give them back with retro games like this we grownd up ?

Again thanks a lot, your group work is biggest than you can imagine.

Great hug for the B and kiss for the G ?

Thanks for the update Ninja and a mighty big thank you to yourself and everyone involved in getting this shared. I'm excited about what an "open source" version of this could be and what the talents of the community could bring to it.

I noticed that the last few packs are for PS2 but I am missing most of the PC Games and Nintendo 3DS that are in the 8TB+ Drive folder.  Anyone else have this issue or know what rom packs those are in? Also, is there a definitive list of each rom pack and what it contains? I appreciate your help.

I'm just jumping in and trying to get started.  I started at the top "[8tb].Hyperspin.PC.Fully.Loaded-001-Base-PiPiggies" and downloaded the NZB files.

It is coming back with errors / corrupt files after i download.  Downloading the torrent files now instead.

Im new to NZB's but it seemed to download just fine.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

That is GREAT.  My nzb-downloads are in different drives due to lack of space. ?
I am about to start to extract them all into one 8TB drive. Your online browsable file and folder structure will help a lot! Thank you Ninja UK and others for a GREAT work.

GEMEINSCHAFTSPAKETE

Dies ist die Tatsache, dass die Rechte und die Gesamtheit der Laufwerke als "OUT THERE" festgelegt werden

  • Korrekturen
  • Add-Ons
  • Upgrades
  • Aktualisierung

Wir werden auch das gesamte Laufwerk "online" und die Darstellunguchbar machen Рobwohl nichts geh̦rt werden kann, wird es eine Live-Darstellung des Laufwerks in seinem eigenen Zustand sein, welche die Korrekturen und die gleichen bis zum gleichen Zustand durch geh̦ren werden.

 

Wie lange müssen wir warten …?

Can the project be considered complete? Will there not be a last update / upgrade / fix package? Thanks for all the work done so far!

Havent seen any “community” movement – so would assume its done, its far from complete though, needs a few fixes, hacks and stuff, but its a great base to start from !

I downloaded the 8TB, it took a couple weeks but I got it all, I’ve been working in RL for the most part because some roms aren’t configured right, usually I work on the red (missing) but mostly they are there, it’s usually a module line rom name incorrect or missing etc. Overall tho it’s huge and you guys put in a lot of work already. We NEED to get a team back on this and release an update and work on this. Thanks!

Problem. After starting HyperSpin.exe nothing happens.
This is what I have tried.
All files and folder are located on D:\Arcade.

Installed all files in all folders from “Installers pack”. I run x64 windows 10, so I ignored x86 when both x86 and x64 was in same folder.
After nothing happens, replaced HyperSpin.exe with the updated version according to info om Arcadepunks.com

Formated C: and reinstalled a fresh w10 pro. did the same install as above. Again, all files and folders are placed on D:

Disabled antivirus and ad-blockers.

I have also tried to just extract “base”-folder where HyperSpin.exe and other files are located. And then ran that file from C: (yes I know it is not D:, but just to try it out if something else happens). Same thing. Nothing starts.
Please note that RocketLauncherUI.exe starts for example. So I am sure extraction works fine.

**What else can be done?**
I don’t have other windows computer to try this on.

I have a new 8tb HDD, and am trying to complete all the hyperspin Pipiggies compilation via torrent.
I have the vast majority of packages downloaded, unzipped and checking every day, however I am concerned about some missing packages.

The most worrying for me is, the Nintendo 3 ds pack because it is completely empty, as indicated by the rocket launcher, it is necessary:
nintendo 3ds: 588 games
nintendo 3ds eshop: 393 games
nintendo 3ds eshop Import: 138 games
nintendo 3ds Import: 443 games

Can we get this somehow?
I wouldn’t mind collaborating if I can get it to try to fill in the missing roms.

If anyone can help me with this, please contact me, with a little effort we can try to complete and update it.

Problem solved. Hyperspin adds a dll-file that is needed if you are running Windows 10 2004-version. Now, Hyperspin starts just fine. 🙂
