Hyperspin Theme Mode [Release v3.0]
« on: February 28, 2020, 05:34:48 AM »
'Hyperspin Theme Mode' is a theme that recreates a hyperspin-like experience by using mp4 theme videos provided by emumovies. The result is extremely close to the original experience and since it doesn't actually try to run cumbersome native hyperspin themes - just their rendered videos -  it is very light on resources and much faster compared to the origin. Everything is here: the glitz, the themes, the animatons, the fading wheels, sounds, game info, 16:9 or 4:3 perspective and more. You can tinker with all options - which there are many.  Featured in the demo video is Arcade themes, but this system will of course work with any mp4 videos for any system.
Enjoy!  :)

IN ORDER TO HAVE THIS THEME WORK, PLEASE PLACE YOUR SNAP VIDEO FILES AND WHEEL LOGOS IN THE FOLLOWING PATH, IN THIS CASE MAME:
Wheel logos -> attract\menu-art\Mame\wheel
Theme videos -> attract\menu-art\Mame\themes

THEN MAKE SURE TO SET THE CORRECT PATHS FOR THE EMULATOR YOU ARE USING (IN MY CASE 'MAME') TO RUN THE GAMES AS FOLLOWS:

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           E:/Arcade/Attract/apps/Mame/mame64nonag.exe
args                 [name]
rompath              E:/Arcade/Attract/apps/Mame/roms
romext               .zip;.chd
system               Arcade
info_source          listxml
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    flyer           $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/flyer
artwork    marquee         $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/marquee
artwork    themes          $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/themes  <- THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT THE THEME TO LOOK FOR THE VIDEO FILES
artwork    wheel           $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/wheel <- THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT THE THEME TO LOOK FOR THE WHEEL LOGO FILES
artwork    boxart          $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/boxart <- THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT THE THEME TO LOOK FOR THE BOXART FILES

HYPERSPIN THEME MODE WILL USE THE EMULATOR DATA TO LOOK FOR THE VIDEOS, WHEEL LOGOS, ETC.

the ftp server is not free. do you have to pay for it, or do you have another option?

Yes it is:
https://emumovies.com/ftpdetails/

I am using it all the time and not paying a cent for it. You need to open up an account in the forum and then use your username and password to connect to their ftp server. I use FileZilla which is also a free ftp client. Please read emumovies instructions carefully.


EmuMovies FTP Login Information:

HOST: files.emumovies.com
PORT: 21
USERNAME: forum username
PASSWORD: forum-password
NEW! TLS Encryption: On (This is the default setting in Filezilla)
Quota: unlimited MB upload and download

I am using the latest version also. You need to take it to their forum or contact one of their admins. There is no reason I am aware of as to why this is happening. Please update me.

The reason it's happening is because the ftp access is not free. Your account level is "Content Contributor" so you were given FTP access, but it's not free for non-paying and non-contributing users.
