Launching a VM through Hypserspin

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I have recently managed to get Aliens Extermination working properly on my cab, Now I just need to get it to run through HS which is proving to be more hassle than I originally anticipated!

It runs through virtual box so I created a shortcut (.ink file) to it so it could be launched without going through the virtual box GUI which works fine.

But I can not get it to recognise it in Hyperspin when I create a new menu for it. Just tells me that the location does not exist.

 

Any help appreciated, Cheers guys.

please explain the way you found... lol

Basically:

I went into the machine menu in VBox and clicked on the create shortcut button.
Then I right clicked on the new shortcut and copies the whole link out of the target box.
Next open a txt editor and paste the file patch into the text editor and save it with a .bat extension to make it a BAT file.

You can then link to that batch file through HS.

 

 I found that if you manually input the file location in the batch file it will now work, But if you copy it from the target box under preferences it does, But it is followed by a huge number which is what I presume made the difference.

 

Hope that helps.

It's helped for me, but I still have an issue maybe you can help with.

When virtualbox launches it's everything is fine but when the VM desktop opens, it opens behind hyperspin. It keeps loading in the background bit hyperspin has focus. 

Do you have any advice on how you got around this issue? Or did you just not have it?

Urgh!

Of course not, just me it seems.  I'll find a way i'm sure.  It's probably just my old PC is too slow.  I'm upgrading in the very neat future hopefully that sorts it out.

Thanks anyway

So my problem was that my AppWait in the PcLauncher.ini was incorrect and due to the sub applications that run when you start VirtualBox the focus window was wrong.  

This thread will help anyone having the same problem.

      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!!
