hyperspin to attract mode list conversion
« on: March 23, 2015, 08:28:43 AM »
I'm confused how to do this? how do you enter commands? feeling like a complete idiot here (and probably rightfully so haha). Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Go grab whatever hyperspin database.xml you want to use and drop it into the root of attract-mode to make your lifer easier.  For this example, I will be using segagamgear.xml which I renamed to gamegear.xml for simplicity sake. Anyway, once the xml is in the root of attract, open a command prompt and cd to the attract directory. Now, just type in attract  -i gamegear.xml then space emulator name. So it should look something like this c:\ arcade\attract  -i gamegear.xml SegaGameGear. This is assuming you already have your emulator created with attract, otherwise you will get error "The emulator specified was with -import was not found. So, create you emulator first. Easy as pie... the 3.1415 pie ","
