HyperSpin 1.5.1 Public Release

Recommended Posts

So I tested this on my Windows 8.1 machine as don't have 10 on anything.

1.5.1 Hyperspin Upgrade files applied

This is with the above pack (20 Converted Wheel Images)

This is with the Original Wheels copied into main wheel directory

So it proves that there is a difference in how 1.5.1 reads jpg files renamed as png?

I don't expected this will get a much time if i'm being honest but @jhabers would need to comment

Thanks for doing this @thatman84  I will begin bulk converting all the files from PNG to JPG then back to PNG; although I don't remember saving JPGs to PNGs originally. The next step is to get Sophos to play nice with these files but I don't expect that to be an easy task.

@malarrya this thread is working for me

Thanks, this thread is working for me again... weird.
I converted all my PNGs to JPGs then back to PNGs using this FREE converter and it now works AWESOME! https://sourceforge.net/projects/bulkimageconver/
I also finally got Sophos to stop being a huge PITA and ignore the Hyperspin files.

Thanks everyone for the help!

Anyone know if there will ever be an update to sort the hyperspin menu freezing problem?  Where the controls just become unresponsive and it stays on the same game on the menu.   Driving me nuts. Sick of having to restart the system!

Isn't that down to a bad theme/bad wheel art or mixture of flv & mp4 video?

No idea but it’s a pain in the arse!! There’s a thread on here about it somewhere.  Someone said they thought it was a memory leak?  Or am I one of only a few with this problem?   

I only have just 1 wheel for mame nothing else,  someone mentioned using main menu changer app that refreshes the wheels but apparently it wouldn’t work for me as I’m only using the 1 wheel.  I’ll try and find the thread.    Wish I could get this fixed cos I play for an hour or two then have to restart the pc.

So I upgraded my PC which required me to re-install Windows 10, and I was finally stricken with the inability to launch HS.

Downloaded the 1.5.1 Update and its working for my default setup fine. But... when I launch the version using my Retro Cafe Default theme layout it crashes.

I will try and figure out what element is causing the error and report in.

Well I have done some tinkering but still cant get it to work.
Looked through settings file to find abnormalities.. tried moving and changing media.. nada.

I have tried the default.zip theme in my other version and it loads fine.. 
Its very strange, may be HDD corruption perhaps.

Log just shows.

Then it will stop responding.

I will just rebuild a new version and see how I go.

Hi all. After downloading the 1.5.1 update files and copying and pasting the UNZIPPED files into my Hyperspin A. (Expansion) Drive I still can't launch. I have set the A Drive to Exclusions in Windows Defender but still receive a Open File - Security Warning message when clicking on my Hyperspin shortcut. Hyperspin turns on in my Task Manager but nothing actually starts. Is it my Rocketlauncher (1.2.0.1)?

You need to make sure that you have changed the directory structure in files such as Hyperspin settings

They are default at c:\Hyperspin

I cannot tell you how many files or which files, but I think there are only 2 or 3 files that you have to change.

Regards

Mark

Hyperspin\settings\settings.ini is one

Cant select startup/exit programs (joytokey) in 1.5.1 with the latest win 10 release even in compat mode as admin.  whole field is greyed out and selecting the exe through the folder view comes up empty.  Parameters field works.

So it turns out it was one of my Special artwork files which was causing the crash. The underlay/border I modified.

Not sure as to why its causing the crash however as it was working fine prior to the 1.5 upgrade.

If the Devs want to do some troubleshooting another Special Art Project I posted here also seems to crash Hyperspin. It might be one of the settings/effects used, but still to tinker with it.

PS. Sorry to any out there using this artwork and are also having issues.

I’m still getting the menu freezing problem!   Really annoying. I’ve checked the demo video files and they all pretty much look the same size.  Anything else I ought to be looking at?   I can’t really seee a particular pattern to when it does it and its always someone else playing it when it does it and never  seems to be on the same game  

Ive known it go 12hours or more without a problem, then so themes two hours and it freezes on a game on the wheel.  

No idea.

In hyperhq do you have the setting reload background checked? You’ll want to have that checked on every system. I think that is what you are describing by a theme freezing on the wheel

Very Special Thanks to @Kondorito for helping me with my crashing issue.

Image result for thumbs up
 

It seems that my Special Artwork Layer A1 was not directly causing the crash, but it was with the the settings.ini for each of the systems where Length was set as 0.
Adjusting this to anything > 0 seems to fix the crash.

[Special Art A]
default=false
active=true
x=512
y=384
in=0
out=0
length=1
delay=0
type=none
start=none

Not sure why this was only crashing when 1.5.1 came into play, but here we are.

Soo if you are using my 8Bitdo Special Artwork Layers or my Retro Cafe Theme and your system is also crashing, adjust each of your length=0 settings to the above.
