Off the top of my head, if you have a "roms only" filter set in hq then you must also provide a rom path and extension. No need to set exe path though.

Also make sure that in RL, HS is set as the the default frontend.

That error means RL or HS cant find the right extension for the emulator your trying to use. If you have your roms zipped make sure you have 7z turned on. Also make sure you see the extension in the list of whatever emulator your trying to use.

Have you checked that the 7z option is turned off?

Make sure your extension is listed in your emulator global settings. If it's zipped turn on 7z if it's not turn it off.

Ok, I Fixed the issue but Now when I Launch the Game the screen goes Black, I can tell I am in the Emulator because when i press F1 it changes the Country of the Console. Anything I am doing wrong? Also, i am having problems with Hyperspin being to slow, I have a moderately fast computer so, its not the computer. Any options to speed up Hyperspin? Thanks :thanks:

Do you have your rom extensions listed in fusion open RL global \ emulators \ fusion

 

and make sure your rom extension is listed there including the zip or compressed extension if you have your roms zipped or compressed

 

If your roms are zipped or compressed turn 7z on to true if they are not turn it off to false

 

 

Make sure you have the rom extension listed in HyperHQ and make sure your rom path is correct

That's only necessary if you're using the Roms Only filter in HyperHQ. Otherwise, they don't need to be set.

Yeah but he said he got it to work in RL so it kind of throws me off.

I know you said they launch fine through RL earlier but do they play ok?

Have you tried them just loading through the emulator?

I haven't used fusion in a while. So I'm probably not the best person to answer that question.  Maybe it's a region problem try setting country to auto detect. Not too sure.

 

Maybe try messing with your emulator settings just back up your emulator before doing so. I know if your trying to play sega cd and 32x games you need the bios for them.

Also make sure it works before trying to set it up through rocketlauncher or hyperspin

I just posted about an issue in MAME where I accidentally discovered If I had MAME open (MAMEUI64 in my case), I could not launch roms in RL nor HS. If I closed out MAME, BOTH RL and HS loading worked.  Don't know if it is the same for all other emulators, but try closing out RetroArch, Fusion, etc. before launching any games and see if that works. If so, I suspect HS & RL don't like to command an emulator to open when it is already open...  they get confused like the robot in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy when you simultaneously have tea and no tea in your inventory. ;)

RL won't launch a game if the emu is already running and since all HS does is tell RL to launch a game it obviously won't work from there either. RL launches a new instance of the emulator via command line with the proper switches and arguments, not by trying to manipulate an instance that's already open. That's why if absolutely nothing happens when trying to launch a game I often tell people to check Task Manager to see if the emu is still running in the background due to not closing properly.
