Lightgun Games Platform/Playlist Media


Recommended Posts

58a9ea2ea5fb3_LightgunGames.thumb.png.2a3faed9c9a5789342dbc34f167c9386.pngThis is a demo of the new playlist feature in Launchbox/Bigbox utilizing a custom Hyperspin lightgun recorded video theme I made. Part of the problem with using Rocketlauncer and Launchbox is the naming issue where Rocketlauncher uses strict naming conventions for each platform. The Playlist feature overcomes this obstacle since Rocketlauncher still uses the platform xml and ignores whatever the playlist is named. This is not really the intended use of the playlist feature, but it is a nice by-product. The great thing about playlists is that you can add any game from any platform into a playlist. While this playlist is currently only MAME games, I could (and will in the future) add any lightgun game from any platform.

The Hyperspin Lightgun theme was found in the Hyperspin FTP under the user rdhanded2's folder (although I can't seem to find it now). Thank you rdhanded2 for preserving it. The theme was created by THK and Subzero and discussed in this thread - http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/405-shooting-game-theme/ .  I didn't like the logo that was used in the theme so I created my own and added it to the theme before recording the video. I will include the logo in the download folder so it can also be used as a Wheel/Clear Logo in Hyperspin or Bigbox.

Very special thanks to Chuck from Maverick's Arcade for his tutorials on getting Aimtrak lightguns set up on a cabinet. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKQosbJTKWjhxNEYpIXSp4Q

This video theme along with the wheel image/clear logo can be found in the link below. I've also included my custom All Killer - No Filler style bat file for extracting lightgun games from your full rom sets. The list probably needs some love so if there are any games that you think need to be included, (or any stinkers that should be removed) let me know below and I'll get them on there. You can the bat file from here as well.
