I had a couple of idea's about converting a bunch of preview videos I have to animated GIF images rather than PNG / JPG images. Then using them as a "Fake Video" of the game like Hyperspin etc. or a small x264 MP4 video
I have the videos and various artwork for pretty much every system and every title that I have collected over the years.
Now I AM NO DEV, and have no idea about that kind of stuff... I do not even know if it is possible due to hardware limitations or whatever...
However I am pretty good with artwork etc and done some stuff on the xbox projects a while back. I would be more than happy create / convert videos to artwork for this should anyone fancy trying it???
The look of Jacks PyMenu is amazing, but imagine this for the games too if it would be possible to do on the PyMenu or any other CFW: FORGET AL THE OTHERS
- How about this one....Hypergif
Clever take on Hyperspin.... Hyperspin for low spec devices ? I like it
This is a GIF created from a capture of the Donkey Kong Country Hyperspin wheel. The idea was used on some of the xbox projects instead of using artwork layers. (Credit to Hyperspin guys who created the artwork and the Coinops guys painstakingly who captured the Hyperspin wheels)
I have now managed to convert some XMV files back to MP4 and a much smaller file size than the GIF files. If it would be possible to use MP4 video as the "Previews" instead of the GIF files this would save a lot of time converting and space on the device.
I am not sure how to embed the x264 so I created a mega link.https://mega.nz/#!iNZ0gYbL!I96NQhvlMHjQHHXJ5n3qeJggEZ8Y-RD3kac5MZpEZ6E
Let me know if you think using video's is even possible or viable.
We could create an image which has all the files needed (EXCEPT ROMS). I Figured 32GB Micro SD should do it
FORGET AL THE OTHERS - How about this one....
