    Great work here! I started work on adding media to my NES hacks but it was very time consuming and I got distracted working on my MSDOS and Windows platforms. Will definitely look into this, cheers!!

    Hey, thank you. It took me a lot of time to put that Mario hack collection together. Though, I’m glad I did as it’s a nice feeling when it’s done. PM me when you add it for the patches etc.

    That sounds great.

    I currently have all my hacks in one custom platform (made it before the nested categories/platforms existed), but now I am thinking of just removing it all, and making it same as you, divided by games inside.


    Yours sounds good too, thanks. It is a lot of work, but worth it if you wish to have things categorised like that. You should see my SEGA Mega Drive, haha:

  3. @Kondorito On my setup, I have separate categories for:

    1. Super Mario Bros. (NES)
    2. Super Mario World (SNES)
    3. Sonic the Hedgehog (SEGA Mega Drive)
    4. Streets of Rage (SEGA Mega Drive)

    I only add separate categories for the ones I really like, and there are many games for. I recently also started a general NES hacks category just for the stuff I really like such as the Castlevania series and Tetris as there really are a lot of great hacks out there.

  4. I added the Sharp MZ-700 to my Launch Box tonight though it is not in the LaunchBox database and there is no video of it of course. I made this and was wondering if it is good enough? Hopefully the green on the screen is good enough to make it easy on Kdenlive for you. I am unable to finish it off as I have already pulled enough hair out trying.5ad488273f47a_SharpMZ-700.thumb.png.e113a52805c378480a4a9b6b8d41a748.png

    I downloaded some game footage off of YouTube from the system but my video editing skills are poopy. I am happy to keep making these backgrounds for stuff if you are able to finish them off with the video side of things dragon57?

    Would you want just a static picture of the rack w/the mags, or the full animation like is in the cab video?

    Full animation is preferable but if it is too much effort a static image would be greatly appreciated too, thank you very much.

    @Dane, I have uploaded 16:9 and 4:3 versions of an HBMAME cabinet per your request. They can be found in my Nostalgia additions sets. I hope they works for you.

    Actually, I have just tested it on BigBox and the background is kind of funky. The nice shadowing present on the normal background must have been effected upon exporting from your video editing program.

    They sure do work for me. You did a mighty fine job my good man, thank you very much.

  8. I have another request if I may be so bold.

    I have just added a separate 'system' into my LaunchBox database, the Brazilian TecToy releases for the SEGA Master System which I scraped at SEGA Master System. I have made an appropriate main system clear logo but it would be cool to have a different video for it. It would be cool to have a video with this image here. If possible it would be fun too to have the TV playing some game-play footage of a crappy TecToy release like SFII.

    Also, I wish to do the same with the SEGA Mega Drive. It would be cool to have the SEGA Mega Drive 3 like here or here. Though, I am unable to find any good quality images of them so on a more fun and quirky route one could use the TecToy Mega Drive 4 Guitar Idol unit where much better images are available like this or even better with the controllers. For the video you could show some footage of the exciting Show do Milhão?

    I can create an updated video showing a cart in the system like you describe. Just be aware I am not sure when the video will be finished, so I'm appreciative of your patience. I'll make an updated post here when it is available.

    I would never request a timeframe, it is appreciated no matter how long it took. You’re very kind.

    Not to my knowledge. I could add this one to my list of videos if you want. What exactly would you want to see for a special MSU-1 version of the video? How do you want it different than the existing SNES video?

    I was just curious if there was one, I wasn’t expecting anyone to go out of their way but that’s kind of you to offer, thanks. I have the main menu clear logo and box-art so I guess with the video to distinguish it maybe just a cartridge in the system displaying a label like this:


    I could just use the standard SNES video and be happy. What do you think?
