  1. Hello, been getting a 'SidebySide' error. Was wondering if I have all the Visual C++ , .NET programs/files that are required, especially for HS. Here is a scrnshot of installed programs: btw, not sure why on my pc I have .NET Framework 4.7 (french version)...will go back and delete thanks, thomas
  2. Noise through Speakers

    If you move the amp around, does the sound quality improve a bit? Try moving it away from speakers and PC and maybe add shielding around it? Btw, are those automotive speakers? If so, they probably aren't magnetically shielded. Check this site: http://andrewrondeau.com/Voight Pipes/shielding.html There are bucking magnets you can add to the speakers. I have some kicker car speakers in my cab. I had some thick copper plating that I grounded and added to the rear of the speakers. Not sure how well this helps but sound is great.
  3. How do I hide windows 10?

    Thanks, I'm reading up/ possibly trying these instructions out: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=113896.0 (*it's for Windows 7) t
  4. PC Games Hyperspin Need quick help

    I'm using the shortcut method as well. I placed all my shortcuts in my main Roms\PCGames folder. My HyperHQ for PCGames: I can drag and drop the shortcuts no problem. Ignore (for now the other extensions) Just use the .lnk for now. Remove anything in Executable and Rom path as well (leave blank). thomas
  5. What type of encoder should I use?

    Hmm no need for second keyboard (but not entirely sure based on what game it is..) Have PC games Highlighted in RLUI. First goto Settings and enable AHK method to "External" Then goto Keymapper (still under PC games) Tab is 'AutoHotKey', click on arrow next to the green plus sign and select the game you want to remap controls. Goto the green arrow below the game list (about mid page) enter orig. key then the new key you want. *When it says enter original key you may have to instead press the new key you want and for new key press enter original. Try the first way and see if that works first... thomas
  6. Quick question on controller input (not using HyperHQ)

    Thanks for the reply Assassin, In RLUI under global\Controls\Navigation what are those controller maps for...seem to be like HyperHQ? I can't recall now but someone suggested that I didn't use HyperHQ to map controls (because in Hyperspin wheel would skip a game or 2 after selecting a game).
  7. Hello, Did a search (I had a post long ago but can't find it) on why not to map your controllers in HyperHQ and where instead to map them. Should this be done in RLUI, and if so where in RLUI? Also, what about using/enabling a trackball also done in RLUI? *Is HyperHQ not necessary to use anymore? ...Guess what I'm asking all settings, etc.. can be made in RLUI now? thomas
  8. How do I hide windows 10?

    Is windows 10 more difficult than Win7 to modify the splash/startup screen. Have win7 and always hesitant on trying it.
  9. What type of encoder should I use?

    I'm using the Ipac 4(?) ... Just remap the keys for certain games? I use the AHK (external) setting in RLUI and remap the keys that way. thomas
  10. Connecting Speakers

    On the Amplifier, I bought a nice Yamaha (home stereo Amp) and mounted it inside my cab. The better ones will have multiple inputs outputs and selections for different impedences. I bought it at a pawnshop for cheap. Soundcard Output to Amp Input then Speaker Outputs.... Btw, also made my own volume control, tapped in-between the soundcard out and Amp in (for all output speakers). thomas

  13. How much do you charge for designing a marquee. I have a bit here that I started but I'm terrible at vectorizing. Or if anything vectorizing the "Arcade Time Machine" BTTF art.
  14. Finally have a chance to try and finish my marquee (after years of using a faded MAME one). Been using photoshop 9 CS2 which has Imageready and I'm ok at doing most this in PS but can't seem to grasp the vector graphics part. This is probably the first time I'm using VG. I have an idea I want to go with, which is something like "Arcade Time Machine" but written in the Back to the Future font. Not sure If I want to add anything else from BTTF. Anyway, here is what I have so far...let me know what you think add change move...etc... And this time I'd like to incorporate HyperSpin somewhere in it. Lastly, want to add some classic arcade characters..not too many... The Background: Here is what I have so far (the BTTF graphics, as you can see aren't too great :/ More files at my dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/home/Arcade Marquee thomas
