  1. HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    Does anyone know if it’s worth me updating? I’m using win7 and no intension of using win10, my pc is barebones, nothing else installed other than hyperspin and mame, no anti virus, no defender, nothing. Everything’s switched off that doesn’t need to be running and it’s really good.... apart from hyperspin menu freezing after a few hours and despite trying everything other than turning off attract mode (will try this later) I can’t get rid of this problem, also the player 1 joystick becomes erratic too. If the new version isn’t going to solve this is it worth me updating?

    Anyone else find a solution to this? Windering if this has been fixed in the new version as it’s driving me crazy. Also, has anyone noticed if this problem still happens if attract mode is switched off?
  3. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    Ok so an update... I set the exit emulator key as above to ESC (same as hyper hq and mame) it hasn’t as yet Locked the controls up at all! but.. I’ve noticed that the controls on the player 1 joystick (mapped to cursor keyboard keys) started becoming occasionally erratic. RIGHT on the joystick wouldn’t work intermittenty at the time I noticed this, it worked, then it didn’t, then it did two clicks etc. Nightmare for side scrolling games! After checking joystick switches, wiring, led status on the iPac, all GND wires etc, everything is fine. Tested this over last few days and it kept doing it randomly so I’ve disabled “keyboard delay” as this problem only happened with the player 1 joystick, not player 2 and as the keyboard delay function only affects the player 1 joystick I wondered if this would make any difference and it has! So far so good. Left it running for hours with a game running and also in attract mode and no lock ups of the controls and hopefully that’s also sorted the intermittent erratic joystick problem. Anyone else had this joystick problem? Can’t seem to find anything conclusive
  4. Question about keyboard delay in hyperHQ.

    Hi. I know this is an old thread but I’ve been having some issues and wondered if anyone else has had the same as I think it’s linked to this keyboard delay... for some reason, and this is an intermittent problem, when either in a game (mame) or in the hyperspin menu, my player 1 joystick that is mapped to the cursor buttons (I’m using an iPac4) for whatever reason becomes erratic. For example, you move the joystick right, it moves, then it doesn’t, then it moves as though you’ve clicked it twice etc... a real problem when in any game especially side scrollers. So ive tested everything, wiring, switches, checked status of the iPac, can’t find anything wrong. Checked the keyboard mapping, all ok. So ive now turned off the keyboard delay as the problem only affects player 1 stick and it doesn’t seem to do it anymore, so looks possibly like it’s the keyboard delay? I cant find anything or anyone who’s had this fault, wondering if anyone’s had the same problem and if they also found it to be the keyboard delay?
  5. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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
  6. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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
  7. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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
  8. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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
  9. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    Haven’t tried it yet. Just reading the tutorial. Bit confused at minute... what mode do I need to run it in to hopefully sort this problem?
  10. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    Yep... still does it after a few of hours. Did it once as usual over a 12 hour running period. Will look at the menu changer option
  11. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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.
  12. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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...

  14. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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 ?
  15. Keyboard and Joystick randomly become unresponsive

    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...
