  1. HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

    I'm not sure what was going on with your setup... the update was just a drag a drop (replace). The problems you describe sound like you weren't using RocketLauncher before this. If that's the case, you definitely would have needed to go through that migration, which has nothing to do with HyperSpin (other than changing the HL path). Good luck!
  2. I cannot launch games through HyperSpin!

    This is in the RocketLauncher upgrade from HL instructions.
  3. Display controls for games - marquee?

    Could you share your RL user routine? I'd be very interested in playing around with it...

    Worth a shot... I'm sure you're ready to be done with this problem

    Looks like you're dealing with a MAME & ROMset mismatch which might be contributing to the issue... 0.171 and 0.182 were released almost a year apart and somewhere in there I know that hiscore was changed a bit. I'd suggest finding a 0.182 build of Arcade64 (FKA MAMEUIFX) or MAME proper and trying it out to see if that's what's going on. @gigapig FYI - we've been having a similar discussion over here:
  6. Old CRT look in Hyperspin

    I think (think) the last time we had a running conversation about them was in this thread: IIRC the main changes were deeper black levels as well as more accurate processing. Check out some of the screenshots in that thread.
  7. Old CRT look in Hyperspin

    It's also worth noting that HLSL had some pretty terrific enhancements around the 0.174 timeframe, so if you like what you see it might be worth updating to a MAME version + romset newer than that.
  8. Old CRT look in Hyperspin

    Check your rocketlauncher settings (global emulator settings for MAME) to make sure you have HLSL set to "ini". Here's a screenshot:
  9. Boot straight into game

    No intro video, either, correct?
  10. Boot straight into game

    This is an interesting idea... how did you get around HyperSpin still loading in the background and playing sounds/music for the main wheel theme it starts on?
  11. Griffin518's Best of MAME - MAME ini files

    Let's make sure you have HLSL enabled for the MAME emulator in your RocketLauncher settings. Set the option to ini.
  12. Hyperspin.exe files gone

    Unless you have admin rights on your work PC, you're either screwed or you'll need to go suck up to IT. Up to you. I will say that you should be able to just download HS again and plug in the missing files by hand. That would be a quick and face-saving option. Never mix work and hobby!
  13. Opinions on dedciated versus multiple system emulation

    I think you're going to get a range of responses to RetroArch, some like it, some don't... but what you'll almost always hear is that best practice is to use a dedicate MAME install for arcade games, not the older MAME core included in RetroArch. How many systems are you considering? I use MAME for arcades, then RetroArch for the few consoles I care about (it does a great job at presenting a unified experience for these).
  14. Need HELP..

    How are you connecting the JAMMA harness to the PC? If you don't have it connected right now, you'll need something like a J-PAC.

    Thank you so much for the new release!
