Check out 2 sets.  The eXoDoS set and the ScummVM set.  They are both integrate-able into HyperSpin.  Both are fairly straightforward in getting them to run with RL.  Pretty much just read the module notes.

I would setup dosbox, then install win98. Then install game in win98. Change windows 98 shell in win.ini from explorer.exe to the game.exe. then setup a wheel/database manually to launch. I would probably do that per game. That was my general idea for this type of thing and have not tested. Good luck.

      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!!
