  1. Ouch, ntdll errors can be almost anything! Have you got the latest .net framework?
  2. HyperHQ? ...ALL launching should be done by RL. HQ is only really useful for populating/filtering the wheel! You can create dummy text files and use the txt extension if you want. It will have no effect at all on launching. RL will load them fine.
  3. Some thoughts: "Good" artwork should scale fairly well since they are both 16:9. What you are running hardware wise will greatly affect how deep down the 4k rabbit hole you want to go. If you own a beast PC, it is all good for emulation. There ARE users who are making bezels at 4k... more artwork is sure to follow as more people buy these TV's. You actually NEED 4k (they would like 8k or more!) to use some of the more advanced "shaders". There are some extremely smart people over on the Libretro forums if you want to try and learn about shaders: https://forums.libretro.com/ Even though they are pretty long threads, I highly recommend reading: New 4K Bezel Overlays Please show off what crt shaders can do! HSM Mega Bezel Reflection Shader! Pretty much the whole shaders section, LOL. Really interesting stuff.
  4. Short answer is no, names must match the database exactly. That naming scheme is based mostly off "No-Intro" sets so it might be easier to just get that. If you really want to use the set you have now you can try some programs that use a "fuzzy match" logic to guess... but most of these sets are pretty small and it may be more trouble than it's worth.

    Missing games

    You are not connected to RocketLauncher properly? check these settings:
  6. Oh I am sure "someone" does know... I am just not sure there is anyone actually "hired" here to provide ANY kind of support, never-mind support for the now defunct hyperlaunch. Hypersin (and many FE's) are just not in the business of actually launching games anymore. They don't have to be since RL handles all that so nicely. So for the past few years any "launching" related problems are usually directed to the RL forums. HS is just GUI now. The majority of support on these forums comes from end users like me who have been fiddling around for years and just enjoy the hobby. Give it some time to allow some of the older members to actually log in and see the issue. On a side note, I am a little surprised that nobody ever wrote a module specifically for groovymame... unless it's just no longer relevant (like vanilla mame does the same sort of thing now or something). I don't own a CRT monitor myself so I cant even test out anything for you.
  7. Not rude at all! I totally understand. Unfortunately I personally don't have any info that would help you, but I do wish you the best of luck with it.
  8. Just be aware that you are using software that hasn't been maintained/updated in many years! Chances are very slim that anyone here will have any answers to your questions. These things are so easily set up in RL nowadays. Care to share exactly which emulator you say has issues with RL?
  9. I wouldn't update the databases from sync. It still uses Hyperlist which AFAIK has not been maintained. Like Aorin states in that thread, there are a few threads here where users have tried to curate their own databases and share them. Unfortunately, these setups are very "personal taste" oriented and no 1 database is going to please everyone. I suggest downloading a freeware program called notepad++ (notepad-plusplus) so you can edit your own if need be: It says "module edit" but is also used for DB's:
  10. I am still running an R7 200 series 2GB DDR3 and I have mixed results with PS2. Not really sure how much of that is my system, and how much is still just the state of emulation. I played the first Dark Cloud right to completion no problem... but part 2 (Dark Chronicle) had some pretty major graphics issues right from the start so I never even attempted. Even though the "cheap" one is better than mine and will probably do, if it were me upgrading, I would fork out the extra 70. The "extra" power certainly can't hurt anything, and will eventually will become "normal" power anyway.

    PS2 not loading roms

    Ok yeah, pcsx2 is already running! It needs to close out completely before launching another game. Check task manager if you have to and make sure it's closed.

    PS2 not loading roms

    Same button as all other systems... which you have many, wow! Anyway, if the game doesn't load through RL, it will NEVER load through HS! So let's solve that first. What kind of error message you get?

    PS2 not loading roms

    OK, are your games zipped? and you have 7zip enabled?

    PS2 not loading roms

    Highlight a game in green and hit the little rocket icon, does it launch?
  15. Hi Rayne, Can you be specific on what system(s) you are having issues with? You have options. I am also in the midst of converting all my zip collections into more usable formats (CHD, PBP, etc). All of which have nearly as good compression as zip and load as fast as an iso. Also if space is no problem at all, you can always just leave them un-compressed. Just have them all in 1 folder. For systems that have games that use same names (track 01, track 02), put them in folders, just make sure that the folder is also named exactly like the database.
  16. If you are running any mame version greater than .211 then you will need to grab an updated module from the RL forums: http://www.rlauncher.com/forum/showthread.php?6201-MAME-v0-212-don-t-launch-with-RocketLauncher&p=44551&viewfull=1#post44551
  17. Add the pbp extension in RL ( I would add it first before 7z as RL will search in the order listed): And if you are using any filters (roms only) in HQ, add the extension there as well.
  18. The last post in this thread was from 2016! Also, you fail to mention that RLs database creation only contains filenames, NO extra metadata like publisher or year will be included. IMO it would be easier to edit an official db to retain this info rather than try to input it into whatever RL creates. Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk
  19. Module for mame .212 and up can be found on the RL forums: http://www.rlauncher.com/forum...r&p=44551&viewfull=1#post44551 Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    AHK Updates?

    I imagine most xmls you find around here are filtered for those types. You can find in the download section an app called "mame list generator" or something. You can make your own filters with it. Honestly, I update mame as rarely as I can, every single month is just ridiculous. Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk
  21. The more I look at that, the more I don't like it. LOL. I notice this as well: Not that it's necessarily wrong, but if you are like me and believe RL should be in it's own folder not in the HS directory: C:\Hyperspin C:\RocketLauncher then I would have to edit every single one of his profiles to fix the path anyway. Considering that 90% of these profiles are just used to exit the emulator: I just don't understand the need to try and get any easier. That is my actual profile! Click the plus sign choose your exit (escape) key, click close, on to next system. You may want to add a "p" in there somewhere for RL's pause feature. Or a "numpad -" to bring up RL's "Disc swap" feature on systems that have it, but that's it! All in game controls should be mapped directly to your gamepad from within the emulators themselves.
  22. I believe these are just pre-made RL profiles (same thing as adding them the way I mention in that thread). I also don't like loading of JTK through HQ. It seems to cause "focus" issues in some circumstances where the emu loads behind HS, or after quitting an Emu you cannot move the wheel because HS doesn't have focus so you need to mouse click to become responsive. Maybe that's why the upper is using a joytokeykill.bat? Not sure but JTK doesn't ever really need to quit. It is a super small program that uses very little resources so it can just stay minimized to tray at all times. That's why I recommend putting a shortcut to JTK in the windows startup folder. Other things to mention are that he has only 1 controller mapped (fine if you only want player 1 to be able to exit emus). Also he may use different emulators than you so some editing/moving may be needed anyway. I am not trying to "knock" his share! If you agree with all his choices and it works for you, that's great! I just feel it's better to make and implement all these choices yourself so you have a better understanding of how to make any changes/adds you may need in the future. Do keep me informed of how you make out.
  23. It's all there in the thread I linked. JTK itself has only 2 profiles. ALL other profiles are made within RL. Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk
  24. Yes I make profiles for every system even if they don't need one! This just ensures RL always has a profile to load. AHK for what? I never had to mess with any of that. Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    AHK Updates?

    Yes XML is the database. Well I wouldn't worry about the audit (RL is probably just scanning the "rom" folder and not all the individual game folders that the chd's are in) as long as the games run! You can highlight one and hit the little rocket icon and see if it loads. Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk
