  1. [COMMUNITY PROJECT] Game Icons Project

    Extract the zip and inside is a CreateIcons.exe file. When you run it it will convert all png's in the same folder to ico's into a folder called icons. EDIT: I updated it to support 256 colors and transparency and I also added a link to IcoFX which is a free version of the icon editor before it went paid. So the idea is to get a bunch of images for a system (such as covers) in png format and then crop and cut out any necessary background (make transparent) then convert the png's to ico's using CreateIcons.exe and finally tweak the results in IcoFX. EDIT2: I've attached some screenshots showing the results of a 007 cover cropped and with the background removed then converted using CreateIcons.exe and the resulting .ico file. NOTE: Please keep the the icons 32x32 pixels in size with 256 colors as that is the standard we are currently using. 007 - The World is Not Enough (E) (M3) [!].ico
  2. [COMMUNITY PROJECT] Game Icons Project

    We love this sort of creative project and I've been thinking about how we can improve in this area. I personally love the icons in GameEx and have spent a decent amount of time implementing it for Evo. So in the sprit of the GameEx community I want to share a little app I wrote that converts png's to the ico format. It will never be something that can replace manually created icons but I'm hoping it can help you guys fast track their creation. Thanks again for all your help! icofxsetup.exe CreateIcons.zip
  3. Emulator downloads freezing repeatedly on latest version

    I'll change the tool tips to "Open Folder in Explorer" and "Select Folder"
  4. Emulator downloads freezing repeatedly on latest version

    I will look into the download issue soon. As for browsing to select a path issue. I cannot replicate this. I tried both "ROM Path" and "Logo Path" in Emulator Setup. I can click the "..." button to select a path fine. Can anyone give more specific information on how to replicate this issue? When you click the folder icon it will open up the path in Explorer if it's valid.
  5. We already have an M3 logo like that one (as you can see from the montage I posted). I don't understand why you've posted another AM2 logo? It's basically the same but without the SEGA logo.
  6. Yes I'm aware of that. The only logos I've seen for Sega Model 2 or 3 are re-creations using the SEGA font. If you know where to source the official logos in good quality please post a link.
  7. Someone should probably have let me know about this project as I already created one a few years ago. Me and Mike have already created HD versions of all the system images and logos but there is other graphical related work you could help with. I've sent you a PM so we can coordinate future work. (I've attached some montages showing our current work)

    Great work as always greatstone, thanks for keeping this awesome project alive
  10. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    I'm really running out of ideas. Is there anyone else around with U360's that can verify the plugin is working or not for them? I have a test program that uses my UltraStik dll's you can download here. See if it can detect your U360's and program them correctly.
  11. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    I just compiled and uploaded it again so the date for PlugInUltraStik.dll should be 2-2-2017. I also updated PacDrive32.dll. So grab the latest. Can you try unplugging your U360's and see if you get the debug output. The reason I asked you to reboot in the earlier post is because when you exit GameEx and have the GameEx Online "Run in background" setting enabled it will lock the PlugInUltraStik.dll file so you will not be able to overwrite it. So can you also turn off this setting in GameEx and make sure "GameEx Background.exe" isn't running in the background using Task Manager.
  12. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    Thanks for your patience Surface. I tried your PLUGINS folder and I didn't get any log. I tried downloading the plugin and that didn't work either. It appears I must have screwed up the upload so I have uploaded the latest version again. Sorry about that. Please try the download again and fingers crossed it works this time!
  13. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    Can you zip up your PLUGINS and CONFIG folders and post them here?
  14. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    I just checked and I'm getting the log output. Try following these instructions: 1. Download and install the latest version of GameEx 2. Reboot your PC 3. Download PlugInUltraStik.zip and extract to C:\GameEx\PLUGINS overwriting the files 4. Run Plugin Manager and make sure the UltraStik plugin is enabled 5. In the PluginManager click on Configure and then "Edit Configuration" 6. Edit the following line like so (removing the '#' character at the start of this line) then Save Debug=true # Used for debugging. 7. Run GameEx and launch a game, then exit GameEx 8. Open PlugInUltraStik.log located in C:\GameEx\PLUGINS Let me know if it's still empty. I also recommend you make sure your UltraStik's have the latest firmware (v2.5) (For instructions go here)
  15. [RESOLVED] Ultrastik plugin not working for me

    The debug output should be working for the plugin if you turn it on in the ini file again. Please check. PS Be aware that if you have the GameEx_Background.exe process running it will lock the plugin dll's.
