    Great stuff, easily done! Was trying to find the guide on folder structure but its gone....was really handy to refer to when we have brain farts. Happy gaming

    That did the trick! Not sure how I messed that up. Thank you very much for all your help, everyone. I very much look forward to being part of the HS community. Off to play!

    No it's not as it has a typo. It's Databases NOT Datavases I don't know why the OP has put an "/" at the start of the rompath line. Neither Cataclysm or myself stated to do that. The Database folder has subfolders for each and every wheel we want to use. Check the folder is named correctly and the xml inside of it is also named correctly...Hyperspin is extremely fussy over naming...we can't stress that enough. These unofficial packs are frowned upon, as all though they are supposed to make things easy for people it never works out that way. From your extra info, we can see your Database xml isn't in the right place. I doubt the pack was that much of a cluster ****, your "hundred different combinations of things" has probably made a hash of it. Sounds like you're now on track to get it sorted. It seems overwhelming at first but once you get in the swing of things other systems will be easier to do.

    Thank you for all the responses! My apologies. When I wrote my original post it was close to midnight, and my brain was a bit fried. I should have included a better description of the error/lack of error I was experiencing. When I launch Hypserpin, the Hyperspin startup/intro plays and system selection menu pulls up. When I select a system, it kicks me back out to the Shield menu. No error messages. I have a fairly large media collection and I’m using Shield as a server, so going the external route versus expanded internal seemed the way to go. I’m currently stuck with satellite internet at home, and take my external drive into the city with me when I go , so I can load it up with new media. Per @thatman84 The pack I have is titled “Nintendo Entertainment System roms AIO.rar” which I've extracted. I opened up the Nintendo Entertainment System.xml and the game filenames seem to match those listed in the xml. There are some games not listed in the xml, which I assumed I could either add to the xml if I really want to play them, or just delete the game files. In another post on the forum, it was stated that the corresponding xml should be located in a subfolder named after the system. I currently have mine in Hyperspin/Databases/ Should it be located in Hyperspin/Datavases/Nintendo Entertainment System/ ? The rom files all have .nes for extension. I have double checked the rompath for capitalization and spaces. I tried switching: roms_only=false to roms_only=true Per @cacaclysm67: I moved all the roms to Emulators/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/ and updated the Nintendo Entertainment System.ini with the following: [exe info] path=H:\hyperspin\Emulators\Nintendo Entertainment System\ rompath=Emulators/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/ userompath=true exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture romextension=7z,zip,nes parameters=cores/nestopia_libretro_android.so searchsubfolders=true pcgame=false Per @Honosuseri: I tried removing /storage/5C18-9191/Hyperspin/ and then update the .ini to rompath=/Roms/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/ Still getting kicked out the the Shield home screen. 😕 Nintendo Entertainment System.xml Nintendo Entertainment System.ini

    No, we're not guessing...read what has been written. The pack can't come from here as game Roms were extracted from it. The location they were extracted to has also been stated as "5C18-9191". That's a unique identifier for the OP's external drive. They have edited the rompath to reflect where the games were extracted to. It would be a pointless pack to release, if the games and media did not match the supplied database xml. Cataclysm provided an example of a confirmed working path for using an external drive. I just pointed out its easier to edit the current one, than restructure the folder layout as Cataclysm suggested

    @WeeBeloOo what error message or behaviour are you having? we are just guessing a little 😀 the “pack” you mention....is that from here or somewhere else? There’s so many different setups it’s hard to know what you have/don’t have. simple checks to do open you Hyperspin/Databases/Nintendo Entertainment System.xml confirm the <game name> matches the rom files you have make sure the rom files are in extension .zip or .nes double check you rompath is exactly correct including capital letters. if unsure set the .ini file line roms_only=false to roms_only=true If you are unable to enter the NES games list (wheel) then Hyperspin cannons find your games. Fault is the with rompath, extensions or file names not matching the .xml

    Nvidia only sell the 16gb variant of the STV now. It makes sense to expand this storage by adopting an external drive. This way you have room to install the decent android games. If people want to use Kodi or Plex, their libraries will also eat up storage. I also use Arc Browser alongside Hyperspin like the OP, it too eats up storage for it's own library. So my advice would be to use the adopted storage feature. You can plug in another external hdd and use a file manager like X-plore, to backup the Hyperspin folder. As a factory reset will wipe the adopted drive clean.

    Works fine for me on my shield from external drive with 100's of systems all done the same way. Apologies if this was confusing, emulators folder could be named anything, thats just what i called my folder, probably a cross over from my pc version to android 😉

    That shouldn't be necessary. The emulation folder would be useful if trying to share the drive for a PC and the STV. On android we install apps, we don't run executable files for the emulators from a folder. From your ini suggestion, the OP would achieve the same thing by just removing /storage/5C18-9191/Hyperspin/ from the path line. Personally I think it's better to adopt the drive as internal storage. I have a Roms folder in Hyperspin and subfolders for each system that contain the game files.

    Try putting the roms in Emulators/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/ on your external hard drive and change settings ini file accordingly. On external drive you should have a folder called Hyperspin, then another folder called Emulators then another inside that called Nintendo Entertainment System, then roms folder Put your nes roms in there and copy info below to you Nintendo Entertainment System.ini and it should do the trick I am assuming you have Retroarch all installed and nestopia core downloaded. like this: [exe info] path=H:\hyperspin\Emulators\Nintendo Entertainment System\ rompath=Emulators/Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/ userompath=true exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture romextension=7z,zip,nes parameters=cores/nestopia_libretro_android.so searchsubfolders=true pcgame=false
