Hyperspin and upgrade from Windwos 7 to Windows 10: can I have problems?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I would like to upgrade my pc from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

 

Do you know if Hyperspin will continue to work correctly with the new O.S.?

 

And do you know if there are emulators that don't work correctly in Windows 10?

 

If I might have problems, I continue to use Windows 7...

 

Thank you!

You should be fine. Everything actually runs better for me in Win 10. Not sure if there are any emu's that don't work in 10.

Search the forums for the Windows 10 topics. There are a few that will have useful info for you.

Daemon tools can be a pain in Windows 10. For daemon tools lite, you have to use version 10. There is a trial period, and then you have to register it.

Does that game work in Demul?

Just checked and Virtua Tennis 2/Power Smash works like a champ in Demul0.7a with latest module.

Fun game, I'd never played it before just now.

Its a really fun game. The brilliance of it is that one with no experience can play it directly on a decent level but even if you play two months you can even get better. The gameplay is very simple but yet very deep.

I just posted a new topoc if someone can explain how to get demul working. Seems like you can :)

I switched to 10, had trouble with games taking too long to launch.  I didn't have much time to spend figuring it out so I switched back to 7.

Possibly could have been Windows 10 defender virus checking your stuff (or quarantining bits of it). Makes everything chug. When switching to Win 10 make sure to exempt all your Hyperspin & RocketLauncher files/folders/roms from Windows Defender (or your anti-virus)

I think I did that.  I didn't have any third party software and I think I excluded my entire Hyperspin drive, but I can't remember for sure now!  My machine goes in an arcade cabinet so it will never be used for anything other than that so I didn't figure it mattered!

Yeah. Same with mine, but I also run PC games so I needed to be up to date for the new Win 10 only games like Killer Instinct (Can't remember if SFV requires Win 10).

For me Windows 10 has actually run my cabinet better and smoother than 7 did.

is there an issue when using the tiles interface?

I've never tried the tiles option.

I just run it with a normal desktop completely blank, no desktop icons or taskbar, with a wallpaper matching my arcade machines marquee.

During boot I changed out the windows login screen for a black, blank screen. My login Avatar is the Pac-Man character from my marquee.

Switched my mouse pointer out for pac-man characters.

Overall it doesn't really look much like a PC booting up except for the initial blue on black windows logo that I haven't found a way to remove or replace yet.

I just upgraded from 7 to Window 10 a couple of hours ago. Right now I'm doing all the preliminary installs (Office, Steam, Adobe Ps/In/Il/Fl/etc) before I get into Rocket Launcher and HyperSpin. I'll report back and let you know what ends up happening :thumbsup:. Tried launching a game from RL and turns out it wants me to have .NET Framework 2.0 installed so that's problem numero uno for me.

 

Also, had to change my JoyToKey startup directory in HyperHQ because all the drive letters shifted.

I haven't had any issues with HyperSpin running on Windows 10.

 

The only issue I have had is that "Silent Hill: The Arcade" won't run on Windows 10. It didn't work on 8.1 either though.

No trouble here apart from what Tomkun Just mentioned, which I'm not bothered about.
