  1. http://www.mediafire.com/?57dnedexdn375n2 I make no guarantees with this, haven't run a machine with this since 2010 or so, and I've never checked it with anything other than XP. It's the exact file that was upped back in 2008 or whenever it was.
  2. You could try adding a delay before running HS. I found that (on my cab at least) if HS tried to launch too soon after booting up it caused issues. Try adding a delay in the script (either launch another program or add a wait in the script).
  3. 17. PC App launching directly from Main Wheel. Wondering if this is going to be on the cards soon? Reason I'm asking is it would be nice to launch Silverjuke without going into the "rom" submenu first. I'm not sure how easy this would be to implement, maybe a preference in the INI file to launch the first item in the ROM list, and set the rom extension in the system DB to exe?
  4. I'm away on holidays at the moment (typing this on my iPhone) but when I get back in a couple of days I'll post the source script. I'll also post a version where you can change the HS install path in the INI file.
  5. If you're interested in shutting down HyperSpin on exit it can be done now, see my thread: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1576
  6. Awesome, be sure to let me know how you go! Thanks.
  7. It's actually 1 for 2 cause mine's working I'm assuming that Marke's issue is to do with HyperSpin itself because HyperSpin is running the Shutdown exe. Marke, have you tried setting the shell exe to the HyperSpin.exe? Does it still do the same thing? I'm just trying to establish if it's a problem with my EXE or an incompatibility with HS?
  8. So the instructions worked, just HyperSpin quit early? I'm assuming that's what happened as HyperSpin executes shutdown.exe on exit. As I said above it may not work on everyone's system, so If you can give me any more information we might be able to figure it out.
  9. I've created a wrapper for those who run (or wish to run) HyperSpin as a Shell. Tested under XP, working fine on my machine. It actually fixed my Black Screen issue too, which would occur if I just tried to run HS as shell by itself. Your mileage may vary. It enables you to run HyperSpin as a shell whilst still having a quick and easy way to quit to Windows should you wish. Also shuts down the PC if you quit Hyperspin in the regular manner. By default the key to quit to windows is F12 but you can change it by editing the INI file. The Steps to get it working are as follows: 1. Copy the files to your HyperSpin directory. For me this is "C:\HyperSpin" 2. Edit the HSShell.ini file if you wish to use a key other than F12 3. Click The Start Menu, run, then type "regedit" 4. Navigate to Key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell" and change the value from "Explorer.exe" to "C:\HyperSpin\HSShell.exe" ** 5. Edit: It might be an idea to leave step this until you know HyperSpin runs correctly as a shell... Now edit the "C:\HyperSpin\Settings\Settings.ini" and find the heading "[Exit Program]". Change the line underneath so it reads "Executable = C:\HyperSpin\Shutdown.exe" 6. Reboot & Hopefully it works! There are many other tweaks you can make to your system to hide Windows further. I will probably post on a few of these methods later, but for now if someone feels brave if they could test this out and let me know how they go. IMPORTANT: If Hyperspin doesn't load, press control-alt-delete, select Task Manager, Then "New Task" and type in "explorer.exe" to get back to Windows. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT REGISTRY CHANGES WERE MADE SO YOU CAN CHANGE IT BACK IF IT DOESN'T WORK! Let me know how you go. Updated 2012: NEW LINK: MediaFire NOTE: This is from years ago. I've never tested with Windows 7 or Vista, only XP.
