  1. Hyperspin does support modern versions and cores are updated and working for various systems....the problem is your looking in the wrong places...try social media places like Facebook and discord as I can tell u developers and modders are there actively working
  2. If u didn't get it yet, just download an app called quick shortcut maker....then highlight the emulator and it will give u several intents ....1 of them will be the 1 u need...
  3. Gonna be alot of work regardless....this is similar if not the same as photoshop data set variables...problem is that when using data sets u need the info imported as a csv or txt file....maybe all the info is already on an xml but you'll still need to separate them and if using csv, each game info will need its own block on excel....u can change text or do whatever using data sets but 2nd thing u will need to do is import all the gsme names corresponding to the text on another column...that way u have the option to nsme each set from column1 or column2 and u will choose the column with the game names....thats how I did a simple data set run to make generic wheels for an old obscure system...1 column was for the game name and the 2nd column was for the game name as I wanted it to appear as a ping image but without the crazy tags like country and version
  4. Ok real quick...game missing or incorrect...means rom path is wrong...also android reads path with \ and not / like the pc....notepad++ will change it all in bulk...collections don't work on android....basically only 1 emulator can launch via ini file (android hyperspin limitation)....lastly never buy a drive for android because to have it properly setup, u need to have the folders in a writable location...that writable location on the drive will be read by android which includes a serial number for the drive that is unique to all drives....no 2 drives will ever have the same serial number even if u clone the drive...if the seller just puts all folders where ever he wants u will get RetroArch errors because RetroArch won't be able to write to the drive...things like msdos and others will result in errors...i can guarantee u that no android seller edits all ini files reflecting each individual drive serial number
  5. Ok hopefully hyperspin android is not dead...lolz....but this video is showing openbor directly launching to games via psp....1st half of the video is from retroarch using ppsspp core and the 2nd half (approx 14:00) is using ppsspp gold apk...both will have issues with newer games hence why some will launch to a black screen...when I enabled the bezels, i used the game Jennifer as my template to do a batch for all the openbor games....what i didnt realize was that Jennifer uses a separate aspect ratio compared to the other games....that's why all the other games are not aligned to the bezels...what u usually do is make a cfg for 1 game, then use that info to make a batch script for all the games within that system....sometimes u cannot set the core itself to one bezel because other systems may use that same core...individual game cfgs are best for those situations...also the nature of the setup for openbor u cannot set it to directory overrides....openbor like scummvm uses the double folder trick for android...
  6. I posted earlier about my roms not loading from my hdd for amiga but I was using an older puae core...once i updated, they load from the hdd ...so its important ppl use the lastest core and not the older puae core
  7. Day of the tentacle for msdos, u can go to the 2nd floor and on the PC play manic mansion...scummvm version doesn't allow that
  8. Ms dos will take the most time....mess (old computer systems) are also fully compatible as long as the drivers are working for mame up to 0.197...this includes systems that dont have a hash XML like sony pocketstation or sega svm...command line will be your friend so u wont need to rename any roms
  9. Quick lil addition concerning amiga and cd32 and cdtv....in my own experience and opinion I think it's best also to split the core for each separate system...instructions can be found on retroarch website....also with some homebrew games or even regualr games some will need to have separate uae files to launch properly....doom and doom2 are examples for cd32....I use a slightly older core and making the changes in the options didnt work....the uae file must be edited and that's what will be launched for those particular fastram required games...threw that in there in case anyone gets stuck on a black screen trying to launch those games
  10. Have u tried the new puae core??...u should because it plays cdtv, cd32, and hdf,adf, and whdload games...give it a try and has full controller support for cd32/cdtv and keyboard and mouse and joystick for amiga
  11. As far as msdos goes...its best to load them via conf files....basically the conf file has all the settings and what will be the c drive and what will be the d drive if applicable for cd based games...they also need to be on internal drive as I had errors loading from my hdd....scummvm is a bit tricky and needs subfolders...basically each subfolder will hold the game plus a .scummvm txt file inside which is what u will use to launch the game...the xml must also reflect the subfolders (I have the notepad++ code to reflect the subfolders)....amiga u can use uae4arm or puae core in retroarch...myself and ransome have tested alot of games and all seem to load good and puae has on board keyboard or u can use a bluetooth keyboard...keyboard is also good on scummvm and msdos.....
  12. Check other systems if it does the same....if so that means u have the shield setting turned on to kill all apps upon exiting....if u leave hyperspin to jump on an emulator, technically the shield sees it as if u left that app so it will kill it....when u exit the emulator, only place u can go back to is shield main menu
  13. The uae file may be incorrect...even if u click the file using a file explorer, that will auto launch the emulator to the game if all is correct...
  14. Did u set those folders in the directory settings?....it seems like u didnt because when u 1st opened the menu it automatically pointed to the default location in hidden files section...I can confirm that I'm using hyperspin 1.8 retroarch3264 and using retroarch 1.7.6 and also using retroarch64 1.7.5....I changed all important locations that I personally use to edit things like configs folder, overlays folder downloads folder and info folder....did it for both retroarch apks...also changed the open menu buttons to start +back and exit left and right thumbs....did it twice on both apks...1 for standalone apk and again after hyperspin launched both apks....everything is confirmed working as it should
