HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

After replacing the .exe's; i'm now getting an error from launching games within hyperspin:  No Default_Emulator found in "D:\Arcade\RocketLauncher\Settings\%romname.%\Emulators.ini" Please set one so RocketLauncher knows whate module to use.

 

Rocketlauncher and Hyperspin are not in the same directory.  I've got global emulators.ini in my D:\Arcade\RocketLauncher\Settings directory. 

Rocketlauncher knows the paths and can I can launch everything from within Rocketlaunch UI.

I've updated Rocketlauncher via the auto update and still have the same issue.

Do I need to run the transition tool? 

Any pointers?

Thank you

Seems like I fixed this problem but others have come up.  I fixed this (for anyone else reading) by doing a couple things:

1. Ran the migration utility (dont know if this was needed)

2. Updated Rocketlauncher (both of these steps overwrote some specific settings I had - VERY ANNOYING %^&*%^&!!!!)

2. Changed hyperspin to use hyperlaunch for every wheel within hyperHq

3. Added the Rocketlauncher path for the hyperlaunch path in my hyperspin bootup script 

I'm summarizing this as i'm not in front of my arcade.

I'm not sure what was going on with your setup... the update was just a drag a drop (replace). The problems you describe sound like you weren't using RocketLauncher before this. If that's the case, you definitely would have needed to go through that migration, which has nothing to do with HyperSpin (other than changing the HL path).

Good luck!

Thanks for the update!  Will you be addressing the no audio in Hyperspin after enabling portaudio in MAME?

I've never heard of this before. Can you point me to a thread on it?

Why does my anti-virus (It's Microsoft Essentials since I don't surf porn or stupid sites on my PC) Go ape shit and deletes the Hyperspin.exe and icon shortcut every time I reboot?

As already discussed in this thread you need to add Hyperspin as an exclusion so the dumbass AV doesn't dump it.

All this moaning about anti virus, just set up an exception for the whole hyperspin folder in whatever anti virus your using. 

If anything gets deleted there's All ways a way to reverse the delete then just add an exception for where ever that file was stored..

What I have taken away from this whole thread is that NO ONE READS THE WHOLE THREAD.  So please put a huge, unable to be missed Disclaimer on the download notice, the download and even on the actual zip file so that when you unzip it, you would have had several notices about the issue.  I cannot tell you how many times this very issue comes up in trouble shooting this software for people.

 

That being said, people are still not going to read the notices so it is probably a waste of time :D

Yes!  @fr0stbyt3Here it is:

 

If you enable portaudio in MAME, sound will stop in hyperspin after returning to it after exiting a MAME game.  For now I've been going without audio in hyperspin because I prefer less input lag.  :)

I've become so pissed off with Windows 10 on my cab that I've  just wiped it and gone back to W7. Not looking forward to setting up the Ultrastiks again but I'm already happier.

Thank you guys so much for keeping up with HyperSpin. I was worried it was lost when win10 got so weird. 

I upgraded to 1.5.1, and havent changed anything else, but now Hyperspin cannot find HyperLaunch. I have the directory in settings, but the log confirms it just cannot find HyperLaunch any longer. I have not switched to RocketLauncher yet - is this a requirement?

 

Again, Thanks a ton for the support

I had the same issue after upgrading.  You need to modify the HyperLaunch_Path in your Settings.ini.  At some point the path was changed to expect the path to the .exe, rather than the containing folder.

Try:

Hyperlaunch_Path=.\HyperLaunch\HyperLaunch.exe

Please read above. As stated many times, it's not a virus. It's a false positive.

Hi! Any way to solve the .swf rotation in themes with this update? Thanks. 

".swf rotation" is that the horizontal offset posted a couple of pages back?

Yeah that’s it. No news yet. Just keep an eye on this thread for one of the admins

I use Sophos AV and had the Hyperspin folder on exception for the past few years with no issues. With the latest Hyperspin build, Sophos freaks out and constantly removes the 3 main EXE files from the Hyperspin folder. I even told Sophos to exclude these specific EXEs and it still doesn't care. I'll just await an update that fixes all these issues. :)

Does anyone know if it’s worth me updating?  I’m using win7 and no intension of using win10,  my pc is barebones, nothing else installed other than hyperspin and mame, no anti virus, no defender, nothing. Everything’s switched off that doesn’t need to be running and it’s really good....   apart from hyperspin menu freezing after a few hours and despite trying everything other than turning off attract mode (will try this later)  I can’t get rid of this problem,  also the player 1 joystick becomes erratic too.    

If the new version isn’t going to solve this is it worth me updating?

I would say if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I can't say if there is anything in this release that fixes those issues to make it worthwhile, though I doubt it.

That said, all this involves is copying some updated executables over so I don't see why you couldn't try it yourself and roll it back if you have issues.

As Rowr said really, back up your 1.4 exe or rename it and then try 1.5.1. My guess is that you will notice no difference, so no harm done.
