Hi am thinking of Installing Windows10 x64. Should i stick to Windows 7 or is it ok to upgrade OS. For some reason it feels like some emulators run better on win 10 but there might be problems i am not aware of. Please leave your suggestions and Answers below. :thanks:  :thumbsup:

As far I am concerned, HyperSpinHQ is crashing, even under compatibility mode. But I have'nt encountered any problems with HS itself.

agreed, it crashes as well when you browse explorer however the workaround is to manually edit the .ini files with path to overcome this issue. Other than that and Windows defender blacklisting HS and HSHQ exe working fine.

I'd say 10 seems to work even better and smoother than 7 did. Plus you get the necessity of DX12 and the built in Game DVR.

I just upgraded my home PC( been working on the hyperspin setup on that one) everything still works great. I had a couple issues with programs( mostly dll files, running a k version no media player installed).

Anyone do a inplace upgrade? Run into any issues?

 

I did and didn't have any problems.

...But I couldn't resist myself and did a clean install after a few weeks.

I just did the normal free upgrade on my cab and computer and both went flawlessly. The only program/file I had to read install was devcon which is something no one else probably even uses.

You will need to re-exempt all your HS & RL files/folders in Windows Defender though.

Yep, I had to do this too. You will also need exemptions for Arcade PC games and I also have it set for my 'ROM Tools' directory. Defender is pretty picky about many programs.

I've had W10x64 Pro since Nov '15 and so far, minimal issues. Don't remember needing to exempt any thing. But HyperHQ doesn't like it. Tends to crash on occasion. All I can say is give it a shot.

No idea.

It only crashes if you try to change a path. Everything else works fine, so just change path's manually and it's fine.

cut an image of your current hard drive before the upgrade just in case, it its flaky for you after the upgrade you can always restore back using image made. I use acronis with a bootable usb or cd and always have 2 full hdd backups for both of my HS builds. the free upgrade path from win 7 to 10 is valid until July 29, 2016.

I really need to get on with rebuilding my gaming PC and upgrading to W10 while it's still free. It's been out of action for a while as I haven't had time to find out why it keeps bluescreening. Then I moved the graphics card into my main PC so I could get my new 2560x1440 monitor to work. Oh to have a bit more time and money!

Pfft... Do it the manly way like I did. Just hit the upgrade button without backing nothing up or even closing other programs first.

Computers work better when you show balls!

Are there any compatibility issues in general from Windows 7 to win 10? I have a amd card, graphics card is maybe 4 years old. Nothing special in general. Like it has a hard time playing dead rising for pc sort of thing. If my pc can't handle that game, do you think it will handle win 10? Activex12 does so much for gaming though

Free offer expires at end of July

      Not sure if this is the best place but here goes.  I have Hyperspin on a windows 10 build in Kiosk mode.  It is connected to the net so I can remote in and do things as the CRT is too much of a pain to use for configuring things.
      My Cabinet updated the other day and it broke my CRTEmu driver and a few other annoyances.  I un-did the "upgrade" and disabled windows updates in services.  To my amazement the service was turned back on as I started getting prompts for updates again.
      Any suggestions on how to disable the updates all together and any suggestions on what else I should do since I am using windows 10?
      Yes I know I could take it off the network (but I don't want to) and yes I know windows 7 might of been better but I already had windows 10 and don't have a legal copy of 7.

      Pessoal, gostaria de saber quais controles vocês utilizam no HyperSpin com Windows 10?
      Estou tentando fazer funcionar o controle do PS3 com Dongle Bluetooth 4.0 mas sem sucesso.
      Usando 2 procedimentos:
      - Usando Motioninjoy
      - Usando ScpDriver

      Hallo zusammen,
       
      ist schon eine Weile her, das ich hier unterwegs war, habe die Zeit jedoch genutzt, um mein Defender Cab, mit ausklappbarer Konsole für bis zu vier Spieler, zu realisieren. Wer es sich mal ansehen will, der kann sich gerne auf der Seite: www.vpinball.de umschauen, da habe ich das Projekt im Bereich Defender / Gauntlett dokumentiert. Das Resultat ist dann im Unterpunkt Player 4 zu sehen.
       
      Also, ich will jetzt hier keine Werbung für meine Seite machen, ich habe das Problem, dass der Defender nicht so reagiert, wie ich es gerne hätte.
       
      Es passiert folgendes:
       
      Ich habe einen normalen Rechner, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Onboard Grafikkarte und ein Microsoft Comfort Desktop 5000 Wireless angeschlossen. Für die Umsetzung der Tastatureingaben kommt ein IPAC4 USB zu Einsatz, der durch die vielen Joysticks und Knöpfe fast voll belegt ist.
      Bei Ebay habe ich einen Repro Defender 2 Wege Joystick geschossen, der auch die entsprechenden Leafswitches mitgebracht hat. Da der Leafswitch am Joystick des Defenders recht sensibel ist, habe ich die UP/DOWN Tasten in der Steuerung des Spiels von Up/Down auf M = Up, N = down umgelegt. Hat den Hintergrund, dass Hyperspin nicht bei jeder kleinsten Bewegung anfängt, unkontrolliert zu rotieren.
      So weit funktioniert das auch alles, allerdings habe ich immer ständig das Problem, dass die Steuerung versagt. Oft ist es so, dass ich nach unten ziehe, das Schiffchen aber gar nichts macht, sondern sich einfach nicht von der Stelle bewegt.
      Wenn ich mit den Tasten M und N auf der Tastatur arbeite, diese also ganz schnell abwechselnd drücke, passiert das nicht.
      Um das genauer zu verifizieren, habe ich mal eine Textdatei geöffnet und diese Kombination über die Tastatur eingegeben. Es erscheinen immer im Wechsel M und N
      Mache ich das Gleiche mit dem Joystick, ist es so, dass nicht abwechselnd die Buchstaben erscheinen, sondern in nicht definierbaren Kolonen mal nnnnn mmmmmm nnnn m n m n m nn mmmm nnnn (Die Leerzeichen sind nur für die bessere Unterscheidung eingefügt) und dann, ganz plötzlich wird kein Buchstabe mehr ausgegeben.
       
      Dann ist es so, dass ich erst wieder den Joystick mehrfach rauf und runter bewegen muss, bevor etwas passiert, also ein Buchstabe ausgegeben wird.
      Vom Gefühl her, würde ich sagen,  dass es sich hier um ein mechanisches Problem mit dem Leafswitch handelt.
      Andererseits könnte es auch sein, dass es sich um ein Windows Problem handelt. Ich habe schon in den Tastatureinstellungen alles abgestellt, was sich darauf auswirken könnte und verschiedene Einstellungen getestet. Leider ohne Erfolg.
       
      Hat jemand ne Idee, an welcher Schraube ich noch drehen könnte?
       
      Ich meine, gerade beim Defender ist eine 100% exakte Steuerung absolut wichtig. Vielleicht liegt es ja auch an Windows und ich sollte alternativ mal versuchen, ein Windows 7 zu installieren. Das wäre mir aber nicht ganz so recht. Eigentlich sollte es ja auch unter Windows 10 einwandfrei funktionieren.
       
      Da fällt mir ein, dass ich für die Tasten Fire, Thrust und Reverse den Leafswitch Cahmp (http://www.arcadeshop.de/ILSA-Buttons-Leafswitch-Champ_566.html) verwende und manchmal dreht die Kiste einfach nicht um.
       
      Das würde darauf hindeuten, dass es ein Problem mit dem IPAC gibt, der einfach nicht so schnell die Signale verarbeiten kann.
       
      Gruß Kellogs
