Start/Shutdown Hyperspin without keyboard

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

So im finalising my bartop cabinet, and have a spare Dell Vostro PC (does the job and cost nothing), which i intend on gutting and fixing the motherboard and components straight in to the inside base of my machine. Control Panel is ready to wire USB in to the PC, so im pretty much there.

 

QUESTION:

 

I didn't want to add a draw with mouse and keyboard. I want to run it off an arcade button that i want to splice in to the current power button of the motherboard of the PC. What is the cleanest/safest/smoothest way to start up and shut down windows? I've setup Windows already so that it loads straight in to Hypersin, just need a solution for power on/off. The machine will always be plugged in to the wall and switched on.

 

I'm not keen on the old "hold for 5 seconds to power off" thing, and dont want to rely on keyboard at all as i mentioned. I've heard there may be commands in hyperHQ to power off on exit?

 

Thanks!

In HyperHQ under Startup/Exit, set the exit action to shutdown. You press your back button at the main menu and it gives the option to exit, which will then shutdown when yes is pressed.

And/or just set Windows to "Power off when power is turned off" then wire the power on your motherboard to a button on the cabinet (I wired mine to a normal arcade pushbutton hidden on top).

Then run the PC, monitor, audio, LED's etc... into a smart strip.

Then when you press the button it will power on the PC, followed by everything else. Tap the button again and the PC will shutdown properly followed by shutting down everything else.

Simple!

      Hola como estan?
      estoy teniendo un problema con menu, baje un pack de n64 y cuando lo instalo el dibujo de anterior/siguiente juego no aparece abajo en el medio sino que esta en todo el centro de la pantalla y no se como acomodarlo (Adjunto imagen del menu al que me refiero)
       
      El otro problema que tengo es que cuando instalo los juegos del pack famicon de 550 juegos solo me reconoce 79, es la primera vez que me pasa, rehago la database y solo reconoce 79.
       
      Muchas gracias por su ayuda

      I use rocketlauncher to start mame64 games in hyperspin but the first game on a fresh windows startup takes 20 seconds to start.  After closing this game the next game will open almost immediately. I know others have asked this question but I can’t find a solution. I have no anti-virus running, no windows defender, no rocketlauncher fades or bezels. I updated the mame64 version to the 209 no nag from 197 no nag with no change. Any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated!!
