I cannot launch games through HyperSpin!

Recommended Posts

My HyperSpin was working before, but now it's not launching any games!!! The games still launch perfectly through RocketLauncher, but once I try to launch them through HyperSpin, whenever I press the start or "A" button, or even the Enter key on the same game, nothing happens!!! And I did try every game I have in my library! I tried reinstalling the newest version of RocketLauncher, same issue and nothing changed. Does anybody have any suggestions on this?!

It was working and now its not? Have you checked your antivirus to see if it has quarantined any files? 

And you said they work through RocketLauncher, but not through HyperSpin... so why did you try reinstalling RocketLauncher if that isn't what was giving you the problem? Did you re-follow the install guide when you did it? Have you already checked to make sure that RL and HS are linked properly? You've checked to make sure it isn't something simple like not having your A button setup to start games in HyperHQ? etc...

im having the same issue. It almost seems as though something caused the settings xml to disappearr as i can not locate anything to fix outside of Hyperluanch.

You're using HyperLaunch? Are you saying you're having trouble with HyperLaunch or with HyperSpin exactly?

Yes. I have checked everything.

After doing WAY too much fiddling around and getting things back to normal by setting the HyperLaunch path in HyperHQ to the RocketLauncher executable, now whenever I launch a game, I am getting "Missing rom extension in ini"!!! I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO FIX EVERYTHING?!?!?!

And did you check in RocketLauncher to make sure your extensions are correct? Should be under the global emulator section if I remember right.

Yes, I checked that too!

On another, somewhat unrelated note, last night, I was so angry and refusing to calm down and take breaks until the problem was solved that I stayed up until 1 AM where I finally had to give up, but it was so much of forcing myself, I couldn't let go of my anger. Then, I was told by my mother that I cannot have EVERYTHING that I want, and the only reason we have what we have was because of challenges and frustration, and sometimes, the only two things we can do are to accept it, or make a new alternative myself. I cannot stand either one! I always refuse to accept, and I have virtually ZERO programming talent (in this case)!

I changed a lot since, but now I have gotten all the way back to the very first problem!!! This is what my HyperHQ setup looks like:

But whenever I click on ANY title, nothing happens! Here is the log (I did click on the game twice):

If you're suggesting a less painful alternative to HyperSpin, all I need is a frontend with an EXIT HOTKEY. Every time I want to exit a game, I don't want to get up from my chair, grab my mouse, and navigate to a close button just to exit the emulator! (*cough* EmulationStation) Attract-Mode has that sort of thing, but I don't know how to split romlists that share the same emulator!

As I suspected, you don't have HS and RL connected properly. Your log shows the "Hyperlaunch_Path" in the HyperSpin/Settings/Settings.ini file is wrong so it's falling back to using HyperLaunch so fix that path. If you're using RL you shouldn't have anything set for the executable in HyperHQ and you would only need the rompath and extensions set if you're using the Roms Only filter.

I removed the executable section in HyperHQ, but now..........

On a side note, I don't want to use LaunchBox because I have to PAY to use its BigBox mode!

I don't know how or why I removed the executable from the path in the first place, but somehow after re-adding the executable, it worked! I haven't tested everything (just this one game), but I'll get back to you if I found another similar problem I cannot solve with another game I have.

 

UPDATE: Apparently not! It worked for all systems!

Have you guys gotten drunk and pee'd on your setup recently? Any demonic possessions in the family or history of serial killing?

Could be any of those so it's hard to say. The only other thing that can cause it is a cheating spouse or child secretly hooked on meth.

Good luck!

Would you guys know an easy way to just start my HS set up from scratch? bothers me that my settings.ini file looks all weird. Just rather have a clean sheet but don't want to loose all my other HS files on my actual setup. I have led blinky configured, joytokey, hypermarquee and would hate to loose all that.

Same thing with me. Can launch games from RocketLauncherUI all day, the moment I try to launch games through Hyperspin, no go. It does absolutely nothing, not even an error message. Did RocketLauncher update and screw with the settings.ini ?
