Recommended Posts

Hi, Im trying to add OpenBOR to my Hyperspin. I added the exe file along with the roms but it keep getting the " Cant find ROMs error. I can use a little help with this issue.

It's not OpenBor but very similar but it may help.

I see you sent me a message asking for help with this system, but I urge newcomers to search stuff that is already covered.

In any case, I have only two OpenBor games in my setup, you can set them as a normal PC game like I did.

I have those setup under my Hacked Games system, but it doesn't matter, click the highlighted icon and choose the exe file for the game you want to run, take the below game as an example:

After clicking the above icon, click the search icon and find your exe:

You're basically telling the PCLauncher module to run this exe file:

Should you encounter problems, make sure you also force OpenBOR or even MUGEN games to run with the PCLauncher module like below:

I remember doing the above because I use really few OpenBor/MUGEN games and they ended up in the Hacked Games system, which works fine for me.

Ok, Im having one last issue and that's with the xml file. it's not reading the contents of each folder now.

Your xml file doesn't have any games, only the header.

You can always add new games or just try it using the sample below:

<menu>
    <game name="Game Name" index="" image="" enabled="1">
    <description>Game Name</description>
    <manufacturer>Manufacturer</manufacturer>
    <rating>ESRB - T (Teen)</rating>
    <year>Release Year</year>
    <genre>Action or Something</genre>
  </game>
</menu>

      Ok hopefully hyperspin android is not dead...lolz....but this video is showing openbor directly launching to games via psp....1st half of the video is from retroarch using ppsspp core and the 2nd half (approx 14:00) is using ppsspp gold apk...both will have issues with newer games hence why some will launch to a black screen...when I enabled the bezels, i used the game Jennifer as my template to do a batch for all the openbor games....what i didnt realize was that Jennifer uses a separate aspect ratio compared to the other games....that's why all the other games are not aligned to the bezels...what u usually do is make a cfg for 1 game, then use that info to make a batch script for all the games within that system....sometimes u cannot set the core itself to one bezel because other systems may use that same core...individual game cfgs are best for those situations...also the nature of the setup for openbor u cannot set it to directory overrides....openbor like scummvm uses the double folder trick for android...
