Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

If you just have one or two systems, then you don't need to use MainMenuChanger at all. 

MMC is for folks like me who have 75+ systems (or at least several...more than 2) who want multi-level menu support.

For instance, instead of HyperSpin showing all the wheels at once, I now have categories that show up as my main menu...I have All systems, (So I can still see all of them at once if I want), Arcades, Consoles, Handhelds, Computer Systems, and Pinball.  Then when I go to one of those categories, I see just the relevant entries. 

It makes for a much tidier and neater appearance instead of scrolling through 75 wheels to find what you want.

I don't think it'd be useful for you at all with just two wheels, though.

Thanks,

How do you remove an entry?  I want to try what you suggested because I don't use those two keys anyway.  Right now they're populated with "u" and "v" respectively, but I tried pressing delete and backspace and it just saves those keys as the new hotkeys.  How do I remove them completely to make the entries blank?

Just click “set” you’ll then get the red txt “press a key” then close HyperHQ.  Open it again and the box will be cleared.  Then do the same again to clear the other one...

Wonder how I could merge the two weeks into 1?   Someone mentioned an app a while back but I can’t remember what it is?  It’s one that searches all systems when you type for a specific game etc but I looked at the tutorial video and it looked complicated.....    I’ll remember in a min what it was 🤔

That worked like a charm.  Thanks!

As for merging two wheels, I'm not familiar with anything that does that.  If you remember, let me know.  Sorry I can't be of more help.

Ok so annoyingly mine did it again!  Ffs.  

So ive now removed the skip up skip down keys altogether and this seems to have cured it but I’ll test some more. 

Only thing is I can’t now skip through the wheel A-Z but that doesn’t bother me. 

I’ll report back if it does it again or I know for sure it’s cured it. Pretty sure it has...

What do you mean you can't skip through the wheel a-z?

I can still skip forward/backward and hold down the arrow to choose by letter.  Is this what you mean?  That functionality shouldn't have changed by removing what we removed.

It didn’t the first time as I’d just removed the skip numbers but mine froze again so I removed also the skip up/down 

now I can only rotate the wheel up and down as usual and not skip letters as it seems to lock up when scrolling the wheel up or down and pressing left or right at the same time. 

Ive tried moving the wheel again vigorously up/down entering and exiting from games really quick and it doesn’t seem to lock up now so it looks like it’s cured it which I’m ok with.  I’ve got the wheel moving quite fast so it doesn’t take long to scroll through all the games anyway. 

The only controls I’ve got set now on hyper hq are rotate wheel up/down, enter, exit etc.  

I’ll keep my eye on it.

Can I install this and basically leave hyperspin as it is?  I only have 1 wheel as I’m only using mame 

ive followed the option 3 written tutorial... 

ive gone down as far as “create a subwheel”.   Haven’t gone any further as I don’t want any subwheel or anything, just one wheel with mame which I’ve done and named it Arcade...  started up Hyper HQ and it’s there in the drop down menu  

Will this be running now?  I’ve notice the games startup and shutdown much faster

Hmmm.. I honestly don't know.  I don't think it will have anything to do, with only one wheel.  It's really meant to create "sections" for multiple wheels.  But I don't see why you can't have just one wheel.  I honestly just don't know for sure.  Someone else will hopefully chime in.

Dam, that’s a shame.  Was hoping this would cure it.   

Must be another way...   Is this a bug with hyperspin itself?  Wondered if it was maybe a rocket launcher issue.   I know you can turn hyperlaunch off in hyperhq.   Or is that something completely different.  

Is hyperspin kept open in the background when a game is running and not shut down and restarted every time?  

Just clutching at straws here I guess

Just wondering wondering...  does everyone set the emulator exit key in rocket launcher?  If so which key?

just noticed mine wasn’t set to anything.  I’ve set it to ESC and let it run for hours, then started loads of games up and exiting them one after the other, moved the menu around a lot and can’t get it to lock up so wondering if rocketlauncher wasn’t exited correctly and was causing some sort of conflict and making hyperspin controls lock up?

As it seems to happen after exiting games

My exit emulator key has always been set to ESC.  If it isn't set, I can't exit emulators at all.  I tried removing the key and I literally cannot exit at all, so I'm surprised you can without it.

Yeah I am now you’ve said that. 

I think from memory I removed it as I had an issue a while back where it was freezing on exit so I found a thread on here which gives you the exit script to modify in rocketlauncher and that stopped it. But it looks like I never set the exit key back up
