MAME Roms refuse to load from HS or RL

Recommended Posts

My setup has been running perfectly for months, I built a 4 player cabinet and love it. Recently though I attempted to start a game from Hyperspin, and it took an extremely long time to load, same issue if I tried to load from RL. It has continued each time I have tried since, regardless of the emulator/ROM I try to start. Hyperspin starts up as fast as always, and the wheels and artwork load and move great. Now when I select the game I want to play, nothing happens at all. At first after about 30 seconds or so, the artwork/video would stop moving, eventually after maybe 2 minutes the loading screen would come up, I'd hear "loading complete", but the game wouldnt start, though sometimes I could hear it playing in the background. Now, even that doesnt seem to be happening. I attempt to load a MAME rom and nothing, eventually the wheel auto spins. Any ideas?

Maybe try,

Update windows using windows updates

updating Hyperspin to latest 1.5.1 if you have not already

Look to see if windows defender, firewall or anti virus is on and disable if so as they may be causing the issue

Run Hyperspin as admin

If this is from one of those prebuilt systems like your copy and paste suggests I would try starting over completely.  Those things tend to be a garbled mess.

Cataclysm did everything you said, still nothing. I’m not sure RocketLauncher is even starting, clicking the desktop RL .exe is hit or miss, sometimes the test rom window comes up when I start it, sometimes it does nothing. It shows the RL icon in the quick launch window of the taskbar as if it’s running (sometimes it shows 2 RL icons) but won’t show up in task manager as a current process. No idea why it would go from running perfectly, to loading extremely slow, to now not working really at all.

If you are using windows 10 try making rocketlauncherUI admin also

If still no luck it may be you computer that has updated and now causing issues, or like Circo said you may have lost settings on your setup or anti virus has quarantined something.

Once that happens its basically getting all those settings again from scratch.

Once you do get it working I suggest you copy all your Rocketlauncher files and Hyperspin files (minus media/games due to size) and zip up as a backup

Then you can simply extract it if this happens in the future.
