HyperPie2 Theme [V2 Released]
« on: January 08, 2018, 10:24:00 AM »
HyperPie2 Themes V2

https://mega.nz/#!OYtzQKzQ!znNgzdhbW4q_FioJwuUi9-zX_hLEBDkptUlq84PrV_g

If you already have HyperPie 2 themes installed delete the old HP2 layouts in attract/layouts and replace them with the ones in the file. Don't copy over existing themes as that will leave a lot of unwanted stuff like views that have been renamed or deleted!

Paste in the layout configs from "PUT THIS IN ATTRACT.CFG FOR X" at the bottom of your attract/attract.cfg. (backup the file before doing this!)

You can see some videos with new features etc on my youtube channel.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM8xZ6CbyMiLrokOQwfWl6Q

You set the hp2-main-menu layout to the "displays menu", hp2-sub-menu to all sub menus if you have sub menus configured, hp2-arcade-menu to all arcade systems that don't have cart art and finally hp2-systems-menu to everything else. Read the startup tutorial carefully and don't forget to set a button to "Toggle layout" to switch between the different views.

You can set your screen ratio to either 16:9 or 4:3 in the display options for each theme and you can also select between PC or RPi for better timed animations depending on what hardware you run on.

This zip doesn't include  the game descriptions. You can get them here https://mega.nz/#!3MkWwbTJ!emOUuFeGLy9NosR7qk-j16JzkSOGE4Zp3xv60sIYlsQ. Drop these in your romlist folder.

Let me know if you run into any issues.

Thanks! The easiest way to get this theme will be by getting the HP2 image when it's out if you have a pi.  That way you will get all the menu flyers (made by Dwayne Hurst), the main and sub menu setup, all the new videos (by Eddy Smith), the silver ring wheels, all modules needed etc. It comes with no roms but has romlist pre-configured that follow the Hyperspin naming so it's really easy to setup. It will also have a theme downloader script, built in attract mode upgrade script and a way to switch between a flat menu structure and the main/sub/system structure. It's a really nice base to start off with.

I will of course upload the themes to github but then you will have to get a hold of all the media to make it look nice :)

Yup, there will be an HPPC2 release with more systems supported. Comes with AttractMode, emulators and Rocketlauncher preconfigured with media and romlists (but no roms).

A quick demo of some box and cart art animations plus a function to swap between game description, front, and back boxart:

Love it.
Silky Theme was always my favorite (stunning work Oomek), I just wish it incorporated cover and box art. I tried implementing myself, problem being I suck at this. This is great though.

Looking forward to the release for PC!

HyperPie2 is out now for Pi and PC. I'm on vacation away from my computers and cant do much but you can grab both versions from either Project Hyperpie (Pi)  or HyperPie Expanded (for PC) on Facebook. Or if you're lazy www.arcadepunks.com

Thanks for the info and the hard work!

Personally I would have liked links to just the layouts. Here they are if anyone else wants to check them out without downloading the whole image.

There's a bunch more you need like modified modules and artwork in other directories. The github is not updated either. I will package everything up eventually but right now we are helping those who installed the complete package and my time is a bit limited :).
