HyperSpin does not work

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

I Need your help, because my HyperSpin does not work after install/configure.
I installed the latest HS 1.4.16 with RocketLauncher. The YT Video of Simply Austin showed me how to install/configure.
Everthing was easy and fine to do. But, after starting HS i cannot choose and Play a game? The Controller doesn´t work too.

In RocketLauncherUI i can Play every game, there isn´t a Problem.
Need a hint what i have to do or check!

Controllers don't play well with Hyperspin.

keyboard keys work so may need to look into joy2key or xpadder

have a look in HyperHQ for the controls tab to see what's setup.

If you use ps3 or xbox controllers then yes you will probably want joytokey or xpadder. Both configure very differently so its just a matter of which one you can wrap your head around.

You cannot start a game with enter on keyboard?

Do you get any error? We will likely need more info and your Hyperspin log.txt file please. (copy it into pastebin )

You should consider mentioning what type of controller you are using to map your buttons.

a keyboard encoder will not be configured the same as a joystick encoder

 

you do not need Joy2key or Xpadder,   

 Hyperspin does not support joystick inputs,  this is why everyone is telling you to use joy2key.

But you can get rid of Joy2key/Xpadder  by mapping your joystick controller directly to the emulators,  and use this plugin to control Hyperspin

 

 

and you should post a link to the YT video you used to configure Hyperspin,

Austins videos are great,  but Rocketlauncher has been updated many times,  the instructions are probably outdated.

More then likely the video does not tell you how to set up a default frontend on your Rocketlaunher settings.

this is why you can load a game with RLUI and not in Hyperspin.

Morning Leisure Suit :-)

Here is the settings I think may not have been included in the video that 32assassin mentioned:

For "Default Frontend Path" click the magnifying glass and browse to your actual hyperspin.exe

 

 

The "StartUp Script" may provide all you need depending on all what systems you want to run... If you find a need/want for a keymapper, I have a tutorial for JoyToKey here:

In your Hyperspin/settings/settings.ini

Your Hyperlaunch_Path should point to rocketlauncher.exe

This looks right... but HS is not finding it!

This is the correct location of rocketlauncher.exe?

If nothing happens when pressing enter it's always either a bad path or a permissions issue, nothing related to the frontend or plugin in RLUI because RL isn't even being executed.

In this case, it's a typo in the exe name "RockerLauncher.exe".

The Winner is agent47. The "r" was the misstake.. THX A LOT!

Ok, but i Need to Control HS with a Controller, because this System will be installed in a
Arcade Cabin, so where have i do configure the Controller? HyperHQ not!?

Specifically what controller?

You cannot setup with a xbox360 pad now and have it work in a cabinet later. You would need to reconfigure everything.

Ok, Mame is now running well.
So I want to add more Roms. I copy the roms in the mame Rom Folder, then I open RocketlauncherUI and Audit all games
for mame and i get this. Why i cannot add games? What Did i wrong?

Judging by what's listed there, I would say you have a merged set (all clones are built into same archive with parent). All games should still work if you set "romchecks" to off in RLUI... they won't audit green though!

Heres the setting:

If the red audit really bothers you, you can always get a split set.
