Hey guys, the new HyperSpin V2.0 will be coming out soon along with EmuMovies for HyperSpin 2.0

What I wanted to gather is your opinions on whether to delay Pants 2.0 until I can grab & setup HS 2.0 with the EmuMovies 2.0?

I Have VIP status with HyperSpin and EmuMovies, which means I can download both quickly. Plus from reading over the problems with the Pants 1.0 I could make the Pants V2.0 plug and play to the best of my abilites. (Pants V1 was not tested on multiple machines).

At the moment I still have the Pants v2 Drive (2Tb vs the 500gbV1 pants) sitting here, so i wanted to make a poll and you guys decide what to do.

Advantages of Pants V2;

    Everything in V1 (Updated to the latest Sets)
    HyperSpin 2.0 Update
    Emumovies 2.0 Update
    Complete Dreamcast, Sega Saturn & Sony Playstation Menus, Roms, and Movies (Thanks to Soda :D for a tonne of ISOS!)
    Will be tested on more than 1 machine for better portability
    Will write a step by step guide properly for the new Pants V2 whilst I install in a 2nd Blank machine (Sorry about Pants V1, was made for my single PC :/ )


Let me know!

Have they announced a release date yet?

They first announced 2.0 back in october, and everyone has been asking for the release date since then with the reply "when it's done"

I am keen on 2.0 especially with vertical screen support, but not only do we have to wait for the release of 2.0 (whenever that is) but also many of the themes would need to be redone to support the new features. This will take some time.

My opinion is to send around the older version which people can use now and get familiar with, and when 2.0 is released, spend some time putting all the themes together and making it as easy as possible for others to install.

If it's going to be released very soon then yeh, plug and play of v2 sounds the go for sure. If the release is still months away then maybe what Danny said is a good idea.

But definitely love the idea of a preconfigured HS 2.0!!

Sounds good to me Dash. I haven't even built my cab yet, so I'm not fussed either way.

Oh, should I delete all the V1.0 stuff from my PC or is this V2.0 just an update only?

P.S. - What plans do we have for the v1.0 drive atm Dash? Are we still planned for a Nuns on the run for all that other stuff, unrelated to MAME?

Well,

what about we just make the rounds for now with the 2TB using the HyperSpin V1. By the time its finished its journey we can probably start another trip with V2?

I think thats a good idea, as the release of 2.0 could still be a month or more away!

There are ALOT of changes in 2.0 so may need a little bit of time working out the best way to set it up as well.

I'm sure if someone does not want v1.0, they will find other things on the drive to keep themselves occupied.
