Issue running PSX games through HyperSpin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

The PSX games work fine when launched through rocketlauncher, but won't launch at all in HyperSpin itself.

I have tried using Xebra, ePSXe and Pcsx to no avail. I did try RetroArch but I cannot get that running, even after using all the different versions and builds (simply austins build etc).

I am using a Windows Vista 32 bit system (intended for use in arcade cab project).

I have a feeling that I am doing something wrong that should be completely obvious. It's pretty frustrating as I am so close to finishing my project. Can anyone help with with this issue, or direct me to a thread where this might have already been resolved?

Thanks,

If they won't launch through HS it means that you don't have HS and RL connected properly. Make sure you're using HS 1.4 and have the Hyperlaunch_Path in the HyperSpin/Settings/Settings.ini pointing to your RocketLauncher.exe without any typos. Also make sure that the Execution is set to Hyperlaunch in HyperHQ for that system.

If you couldn't make it work with Retroarch it's probably due to not having the correct bios files inside the system folder of Retroarch, in the menu of the emulator there is a "core information" section that tellls you the correct name and hash of each bios file needed and if you have it or not.

Thanks for the reply.

I will have a proper look once I have everything set up again. As far as I know, HS and RL must be connected properly as I can launch games on other systems (Genesis, Snes, mame etc).

I used simply austins setup which has everything there ready to go (as far as I am aware). I did try downloading several older versions and ensuring the cores etc were there. Retroarch just didn't want to launch whatsoever. I get the message "retroarch.exe has stopped working" every time I tried to open it.

I'll have a good look once I have it setup again, but I'm thinking it is more of a compatibility issue.

Hello again.

I tried the above suggestion; used HS 1.4, changing the Setting.ini to point to RL path and changing the execution to HL in HQ. This didn't work :( I'm having no luck whatsoever with getting PSX running through HS.

Is there anything else that you or anyone else can suggest?

Yes!!!!

Got it working. Like I initially thought, it was a stupid mistake I made. RLUI was not pointing to the correct path.

So I used the fix above suggested by agent47 and also applied the following in RLUI:

Select GLOBAL, Click General Settings and the RocketLauncher tab.
Set the "Default Frontend Path" to the exe of HyperSpin.exe
Set the "Default Plugin" to HyperSpin.
 

Appreciated the help guys :)
