  1. I probably will be wrong on this, but I will give you my view. I just opened 1941.hi with a text editor, and the characters are useless. I thought that it would write data like this 1. Your high score 2000 2. His high score 1900 It would be a lot of hassle keep swapping the files are your new scores will not have saved, and as there is no way of editing the file, you cannot adjust the scores to suit. You could of course put your hi scores onto his machine to start with, so that he has something to beat, and then after say a month, you create a back up of your hi scores, and then copy his scores, where you have a month to beat them, and so on. Sadly I do not think that there is an easier option, which is where I might be wrong. Regards Mark
  2. 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
  3. i would not recommended using windows 10 at all. Buggy as hell, unpredictable updates. You are better off on 7.
  4. Well it works lol, I might have the day formatting though sadly. I of course do not read instructions, so went ahead and done it anyway. It booted up HS and I thought brilliant, so I exited out of there, expecting to go to my desktop, and how wrong I was lol I shall see if I can get back in tomorrow, I don't think that I have lost too much but if I can access the hard drive, then I can transfer files across. Last time I try that Regards Mark *** Update *** Yipee I am back I tried to do a repair from the windows disc, that did not work. I managed to get into my control panel and I done a system restore and that worked, so I am deshelled. If I was a turtle, then I would feel rather naked right now.
  5. What the hell are you doing? Rocketlauncher is ROCKETLAUNCHER for a reason, you just rename where it says c:\hyperlaunch to c:\RocketLauncher It is hardly rocket science is it?
  6. OK thanks, I shall give that a try. I am only experimenting on a new theme so I can take some risks Regards Mark
  7. An old thread, but as I am looking for something similar in 2018, I thought that I would update this. I am trying for more to the right, and yes it only goes so far to the right. I done what I have just read, I saw the horizontal, and thought ok I shall try that on vertical, and I used x y and z, but that made no difference. I have seen one persons video, where his does look as if they are far to the right, so I think that there is a solution somewhere, than people have said on this thread. The only thing that I can think off, is reducing the artwork even further, so at the moment you need 1078 x something, I think it is. If you are doing 16:9 you have to reduce the image by 15% or something like that. I shall try tomorrow to reduce it even more, and see if that works. If anyone in the meantime worked out how to do this, any help would be great. Regards Mark
  8. I bet you are copying simply waffle on how to set this up As said you should have it outside of hyperspin, if you are copying his waffle, also hyperspin should be in it's own directory so e:\Hyperspin\RocketLaucher\RocketLaucher.exe If you have moved the exe file, rather than using a short cut rocket launcher will not know where the file is, even a short cut can be dodgy, as that is a different file extension. Also you have the following 11:55:11 PM | Launcher Command Line is: E:\Hyperspin\Hyperspin\HyperLaunch.exe "Sega Genesis" "Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle (USA)" You shouldn't have hyperspin\hyperspin your directories are all wrong. Hope this helps. Regards Mark
  9. This is very easy to do. Firstly load HyperHQ Go to wheel settings Choose a wheel, for me I am choosing main menu Click on wheel Location ALPHA at near enough the bottom and put setting to 1 (the far right} This will now keep the wheel visable Hope that this helps Regards Mark
  10. The first idea is that you are mad for using windows 10, especially on a cabinet. I would rollback to windows 7. Second off, I think that hypersync has only just been updated to work with windows 10, so there will be bugs at some point. especially if microgreed produce bad updates, which they have done since the launch of 10. I used to be a beta tester and it was fine and dandy, until they came to the public release, and then everything slowed down. I de installed and a year or so later, I reinstalled 10 to see if it was any better, and in the end I got rid of again. If you are using a dedicated arcade system, just stick to windows 7, it really is a waste of time using 10 if it is just for retro gaminhg. Regards Mark
  11. No offense to Dark13 great skin for a HTPC. However for you I suggest you stop living off your name, and stop taking drugs. The theme would look totally rubbish on an arcade cabinet.
  12. No offense taken old chap, but with my cheap on board graphic card at least my Sonic can beat yours in a race lol I see that you design wheels, so you would be doing a lot of close up artist work and staring at a screen a lot of the time, so your eyes could be tired and it depends on your age as well. If you haven't already have your eyes checked as I have spent most of my life on computers and at 45 I struggle to read text on my iphone as you say though it is harder to tell from a youtube video mainly because unless it is glaring obvious the human eye can miss a lot. I am now going to console my cabinet just because she doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, that is on board graphic card snobbery that is, good job I won't report you to the admin Peace
  13. lol sorry but if it makes you feel better, I just tried on mine and compared to yours, it looks as if your sonic is running backwards lol I haven't got Hyperspin on this computer as yet, and not going to boot up the cabinet, but I loaded Sonic with Fusion 3.64 and my frame rate was 58/60 it looked pretty much the same as yours and I am on an i3 with on board graphics and 4 gig of memory. I will boot up the cab tomorrow and give it a test but hard to notice a difference in those videos. Regards Sonic I have just watched the video on a 60 inch screen sitting about five foot away, and a couple of times during that video it looked as if sonic had slowed down and done a turn but still carried on forwards, I am not sure if that is what you are referring to? One was near or on the ramp, and the other time was just about getting into the tunnel.
  14. I'm not going to watch that again, the only thing that I didn't do was stand on my head. It looks fine to me. You cannot really compare a video software with hyperspin, hyperspin will probably be using more processing power than windows media player. I shall be dreaming of Sonic tonight
