[SOLVED] ROMS Only not working (Extension is set in HyperHQ)

Recommended Posts


I already have a cab I built three years ago working and has done without any issues.

Building a new one, and I am having issues with the ROMs Only filter in HyperHQ.  It isn't working... no games listed and simply reverts back to the main wheel after attempting.  I have farted around with the settings (extensions and wheel checkboxes) after watching vids and searching the forums, but still have not had any luck.  I installed Hyperspin 1.3.3 and updated to 1.4.15.

If I can't get it working, I will simply copy my 3 year old install over to the new machine.
