What are the command line arguments to launch and run games for RetroArch. I have an OUYA which unfortunately isn't compatible with HyperSpin due to the Android version it's running, I would however like to set this up using Kodi and Advanced Launcher, there is information out there on how to do this, however I have tried those methods and the games don't launch. Those guides must be out of date as they are a couple of years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

***Edit***

With this it's ok now:

How do I get the find the exe command? I have a rooted device & can explore the system folder but I can't figure out where you got .mainactivity. If you can tell me how, I can get the commands for all the emus I have (both paid & free) & post them here

Can I get a setting for Garage Games Master gear emulator?

 

I tried  "exe=com.fms.mg/com.fms.emulib.MainActivity"

 

but when the emulator loads all I get is a black screen.  Running the roms directly through the emulator works fine.

This should work according to the developer.   I'd consider sending him an email, he's been very responsive to me.

Ok he responded with this

 

 

 

You have to pass the filename (with complete path) as a file:// URL to this activity. If this somehow is not happening, run "adb logcat" on the PC and see what messages MasterGear prints - they will be prepended with the "emulib" tag.

 

 

unfortunately that's greek to me, do you know what he means?

OK, so I still cannot figure out what how to get the exe= command line. How do you coming up with the .BaseActivity/.MainActivity/.DraSticActivity ect?

I've been looking online but not finding anything simple enough for me to understand. I did come accross a page over at XDA that lists emulator arguements for XBMC which I think may be helpfull. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=48685020&postcount=3 I'll give a few a try when I get a chance. (May root my shield TV first - the "feature" of not being able too write to the SD card is making this proccess of making minor changes quite a proccess)

So the only way iv'e figured out how to find the ".mainactivity" is to run a logcat on a rooted device.  But from what I'm seeing so far all the emulators that currently work with hyperspin have those arguments here in the forums or on that link you posted.  The only emulators i cant get working right now are the new mupen64 alpha, and the garage games emulators.  I got the launch arguments from a logcat, but for mupen it still returns emulator not found, and for mastergear (a garage game emulator) it finds the emulator and loads it, but does not load the game and leaves you at a black screen. 

 

 

edit:

 

If anyone is curious the argument for the mupen alpha is 

 

 

org.mupen64plusae.v3.alpha/paulscode.android.mupen64plusae.game.GameActivity

 

but it doesnt work for me

Ok after messing with master gear some more I found that the argument:

 

 

 

com.fms.emu/com.fms.emulib.MainActivity

 

Does in fact work, but you need to pass it roms that have the extension .gg.  Zips do not work when loaded from command line.  I imagine the same is true for other Garage game emulators

Ok so i found an app today that shows all these arguments for android apks, and it doesnt require root.

 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sika524.android.quickshortcut

 

Its for making direct shortcuts to specific app functions, but it shows all the "activities" that we use to launch roms through hyperspin.

 

Run the app look for the emu you want to run then tap on it it will show you all the activities for the apk.  There may be multiples, but it will be one of the activities listed.

Umm so this is driving me crazy. I have the nvidia shield TV. Hyperspin launches, shows videos, displays boxart, videos, but when I try to load my Genesis roms i get "warning attempting to launch missing rom". My hyperspin folder and roms are on my external usb drive. I only have genesis media and roms set up so i will not get more systems till i fix this prob. Retroarch plays the roms just fine so will someone please help me figure this out. Thank you.

Have you set the rompath to your ROMs, in the setting ini? And set the ROM extension?

Indeed, my guess is you have a typo in the rompath, the .xml dbase entry doesn't match your rom file(s), OR the file extension is wrong (.zip, .7z, etc.)

      As we celebrate 25 years of DOOM! John Romero has brought us SIGIL, an unofficial 5th chapter to the original game. So as Retroarch's Prboom core has now been updated to support it...figured I should really add it to my Doom Classics wheel...
      Threw together a Sigil theme, wheel art and video snap. I was pleasantly surprised, that the prboom core now played the midi music natively. Doom 1&2 originally required me to add the music tracks as mp3 files.

      (FYI having trouble with upping some screenshots and the new formatting so please excuse the wierd format)
      Converting 16x9 Themes for Hyperspin Android
      List of theme animation compatibility
      https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=1-8Ofa_GrAdnQ22nf7W7QYVeQoKBQxA_-
      (I am in NO way competent with artwork resolutions but my method works and looks good to me)
      Why...
      Because sometimes that theme you really liked just doesn’t display correctly 
      The main reason for theme problems is the use of animation and scripting of the .swf assets in the “theme”.zip
      (It’s best to replace themes that cause Hyperspin to crash out, but you can try to convert them)
       What’s covered...
             1.      Extract PNG assets from swf files
             2.      Reduce HQ artwork to be compatible with Hyperspin
             3.      Further reduce artwork width to allow for Hyperspin 4x3 -> 16x9 stretching
             4.      Recompile your theme
       
      What is Needed:
      Update on resizing tool.
            Fotosizer is now advised against because of the compression/quality loss it causes.
      pPlease use Photoshop or this program recommended by @IceLancer https://sourceforge.net/projects/easyimagesizer/?source=typ_redirect
      A    A  Fotosizer (http://www.fotosizer.com/) batch resize image files
              B.     Flash Decompiler (https://www.free-dec...flash/download/) extract png’s from swf
              C.     Time and Themes
       I have done a little testing for Main Menu themes. This spreadsheet shows what I have tested and its Android compatibility status. The sheet has download section links for all themes I have tried.
       
       
      Let’s get to it... 
       
      So grab a theme zip you want to play with and Unzip it. Any 16x9 Main Menu, Game or System Default theme will do.
       
       
      BakerMan provided me a guide to extracting the PNG’s from SWF but it has since been lost. 
      These are the steps
              1.      Open JPEXS once downloaded and installed from link above
              2.      Click on the “Open” tab and browse to the offending .swf file from your unzipped theme
       
           SCREENSHOT
      3.     
       

       

             3.      Right click on “Images” on the left and click “Export Selection”
      (At this step you may find multiple images. If these images are only parts of one image, say the arms and legs of a character, you will have to lose that image completely from the theme or replace it with another one)
       
      SCREENSHOT2
             4.      Click “ok” to PNG file type then choose a location for the exported images (Default is Desktop. Only export one at a time and  then move the PNG out of the output folder as it overwrites each one if not)
       
       
      SCREENSHOT3
             5.      Now browse to that Output location and you will find your PNG’s in an “images” folder.
       

       
      You are now ready for phase 2 – Resizing the images
      Note, fotosizer does cause a reduction in artwork quality. If your sensitive to this you may want to use another method. (If you know of a better program please comment) I only run a 37' screen and don't mind myself.
      (Resizing Artwork is covered comprehensively by Avar in his tutorials found HERE)
      Open Fotosizer Add the Artwork that was converted to PNG Reduce the images to 68% KEEP MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO TICKED (this is the best size for the ones I have done)  
              4.       Move the right side settings bar down and select an Output Folder
       

      5   Remove that Artwork from Fotosizer
      6.   Add the newly resized artwork back into Fotosizer
      7.   Reduce the Width to 75% (to allow HS to stretch it back when its loaded)
      8.   UNTICK MAINTAIN ASPECT RATIO
       
             9.   Now add this finished art back into the theme folder and zip it up again
            
             10.       Name the zip file the same as you have it in the “Main Menu.xml” database
       
      Final Thoughts...
       
       
      Now when you try this theme out you may find the artwork has slightly changed location. If so adjust the Artwork positions in the theme.xml file within the theme.zip OR load it into Hypertheme and adjust it as required
       
       
      Hope this helps someone.

      A video to help you understand the Redream emulator, covering issues and questions you might have. Currently Redream doesn't use launch intent but it will be added soon. I'll do another video to help with setting it up with Hyperspin (for STV) and Arc Browser (for phones & STV) once that feature is added in.

      The Redream emulator for Sega Dreamcast, is available on the google playstore. I know people struggled with setting up the standalone Reicast emulator, Redream is far easier. No extra BIOS files are required and it detected my gamepad straight away, even found the game files!

      I have asked about launch intent, so the app is compatible with frontends like Hyperspin and Arc Browser. The reply I got was he meant to add the feature last night but "forgot" as inundated with day one crash reports. Once the feature is implemented, I'll do a video showcasing the emulator and show my settings.ini for Hyperspin

      As you probably know there is a RetroArch core to play Daphne games BUT currently it's broken! I wish the developer luck getting the official core stable.

      Thanks to @Reznnate. We now have access again to the working test core (HERE: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1frcFNWPinSkfyafsBXsnfHd46_kS1yIY). We can install this .so file through a new feature in RA, an install core option under "load cores" has been added. I've put together a video to help you peeps understand the Daphne game files and the settings required to get the games playing through RA and Hyperspin. I hope it's of help to some of you....
