  1. Thanks for replying! Yes it does have speakers, but I've just sorted it! I'm posting here in case others have the same problem: The supplier of the machine, Mike Cox of Candy Cabs suggested going in to Hyper HQ and checking the controls section, keyboard tab. For the keyboard everything was blank! There were no entries next to any of the options! Odd! So with some trepidation (I didn’t want to b*gger anything up!) I clicked on “Reset to default” and entries appeared next to each option. For “start game” it puts as default “enter” which didn’t work, so I changed it to “1” and now everything works just fine, we’re back to normal, everything playable and hunky-dory.
  2. Hi guys, I'm relatively new to this. I have an arcade cabinet (Candy Cabs) with a PC inside running a load of emulators including MAME under Hyperspin. There's Hyperspin, HyperHQ and Rocket Launcher installed. This is what happened: Last night I think I may have switched the main power off before the PC had finished shutting down, because today I got the message about “Safe mode” when starting up. Symptoms: · Now when you start up, it doesn’t go through its usual Hyperspin startup sequence (with all the sound effects), it goes quickly straight to the wheel. · It scrolls through the emulators on the wheel very fast, it’s actually quite hard to stop it on MAME. · More to the point though, it won’t let me select any emulators or any games! I haven’t made any changes, but it doesn’t respond to the P1 button to select an emulator. What I’ve tried already: · Restart · System restore, but I found System Restore wasn’t switched on, so I can’t roll it back to yesterday. It won’t let me switch it on for these hard drives either. · Seeing if the hard drive needs defragmenting, but after analysing the disk it said it was 0% fragmented · I know that the P1 button effectively is pressing 1 on the keyboard. I went into rocket launcher and looked at controls and saw that the P1 button was set only as “enter”. I added 1 to it as well, but this made no difference, so I put it back to how it was. Should I do something similar in HyperHQ? · Plugging in the keyboard and pressing enter allows you to select an emulator and then a game, but remove it and it won’t respond to the P1 button. * I opened Notepad and pressed P1 to make sure the button is working, which it is. I found a similar scenario here: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/6119-hyperspin-wont-let-me-select-games/ , however he can select the emulator and then not the game, whereas with me I can’t even select the emulator. I can scroll through them with the joystick, but I can’t select any as it won’t respond to the P1 button. The button for “Escape” still works. Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
  3. Yep! Sorted! That totally worked! Thank you so much. I'm going to have some serious fun with this game, thanks again!
  4. Ah haaa! Really useful, thank you! I'll give it a try and post the result.
  5. If I hit "escape" in a game, it just goes back to the wheel: I mean it just exits that game and returns to the list of games available under that emulator. I don't see a "game tab" at all. What am I missing here? How do I just bring up a configuration menu? Should I come out of Hyperspin altogether and go via rocket launcher or delve into the folders on the PC or something?
  6. Thanks so much for replying! I'll give that a try. That's right: It was a stand-up game, but I had a blast playing it with just keys on my laptop a while back. Happy to play it with a joystick and buttons, so hoping to get it to run on my arcade cabinet. Incidentally, I also found the Top Skater ROM was in MAME but it didn't appear on the Hyperspin MAME "wheel" (I found it in the MAME ROMS folder just on the PC). When I eventually worked out how to launch the MAME one manually from Rocket Launcher, it was all glitchy and not running properly. The Sega M2 one runs fine, but I can't yet play it! Aaaahhhh!
  7. Hi everyone, my first ever post! I'm completely brand new to this, having just taken delivery of a Candy Cabs cabinet running lots of emulators under Hyperspin. Therefore, please excuse the ignorance of this question, but then I hope it should be a simple one! MY QUESTION: Quite simply: In the Sega model 2 emulator running in Hyperspin, how do you bring up a menu to configure the controls? I mean in MAME you would press Tab on the keyboard and select "Input - this game": What's the equivalent in Sega M2? REASON FOR ASKING: I absolutely adore the game "Top Skater" which I've found in the Sega M2 emulator. It fires up and launches into the demo mode OK, but it won't respond to any of the controls for "Insert Coin", so I can't play it! Aahhhh! The torture! The frustration! None of the controls or joysticks do "insert coin". I plugged in a keyboard and hit Tab, but it didn't respond. All I want to do is bring up the menu in which I can assign "insert coin" to one of the buttons: How do I do that, if it's one of the emulators in Hyperspin? Many thanks in advance for any replies. Jason.
