Sorry for the recent downtime. Still much to do but we have the site updated, secure and back online. Expect more changes.
I have attached a short video showing that the Arcade games not launching and other games launching perfectly with no problem. So when I try to launch the Arcade Game it appears to open up Retroarch, but does not load the core. Do I have to edit the Hyperspin Info Settings to make sure it is opening up the Core to launch the game? I am trying to provide all information that I can in order to get this build fully up and running. Once again thanks in advance for any assistance with this.
HyperSpin v0.1.8 for Android
This is an unofficial version of HyperSpin for Android able to launch all modern versions of RetroArch.

How to configure your Settings_Android ini files:
Main APK from RetroArch's website and Google Play Store Version:
exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture RetroArch's website 32bit version:
exe=com.retroarch.ra32/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture RetroArch's website 64bit version and RetroArch Plus:
exe=com.retroarch.aarch64/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture Have fun!
Can I mix and match multiple RetroArch distributions?
Yes, you just need to set different exe values for different systems.
For instance, you can use the 64bit version of RA + Dolphin core for GameCube games (Nintendo GameCube.ini): exe=com.retroarch.aarch64/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture parameters=cores/dolphin_libretro_android.so
And the 32bit version of RA + MAME Core (MAME.ini): exe=com.retroarch.ra32/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture parameters=cores/mame2010_libretro_android.so
Will it load separate configuration files for 32bit and 64bit versions?
Yes, it will always load the default configuration file for each version.
Default configuration files are in /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/[package name]/files/retroarch.cfg
Can I make Hyperspin launch my own custom compiled version of RetroArch?
Yes. As long as the package name starts with com.retroarch everything should work.
Can I configure HyperSpin to load retroarch.cfg from a custom location?
Not for now. I find that I can accomplish what I want with the default config file + settings overrides.
If you have a specific use case that would benefit from this feature comment bellow and I'll see what I can do.
How was this implemented?
I reversed engineered the original Google Store APK using Apktool and JEB.
You can find the two lines of code that I've modified bellow. You can use APK Studio to verify my changes.
I can launch a game the first time in hyperspin when I boot it up, but after that it doesn't matter what game I select it won't boot up the next game.
If I close hyperspin and hyperlaunch and reopen everything it will boot once again.
I don't know if my hyperlaunch is getting into a bad state or what is going on. Has anyone else had this issue?
Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue?
No matter what game im in, if I hit the coin button 3 or more times rapidly it exits the game back to the wheel. I looked everywhere in Hyperspin and Mame itself. I already have an exit button programed.
I would appreciate any help. thank you.. and yes.. tried searching this before posting but couldnt find any help. Maybe I searched incorrectly.
I updated my retroarch to 1.9 by downloading the retroarch folder and overwriting my existing Retroarch folder.
I have done that a couple of times without any problems so far but this time, i can access the games via retroarch directly but the games won't open, when i want to start them through hyperspin.
Besides that, I have the exact same problem with the dolphin emulator. games start via dolphin perfectly but don`t start through hyperspin. when i exit hyperspin via task manager, i can see that the dolphin emulator window gets opened by "starting the game via hyperspin".
