hey

I've installed hyperspin and rocket launcher as per Simply Austin's instructional video on YouTube.
problem is when I select the game from hyperspin the screen goes blank but nothing loads. The games play perfectly if launched from rocket launcher.
Simply Austin points hyperspin to rocket launcher ui but the official hyperspin video says to just point to the rocket launcher exe.

I've tried both methods but nothing gives.


can anyone help me? if really appreciate a steer on this.
thanks

Do you have your sound card drivers installed ? I noticed before hyperspin wouldn't launch games for me if I didn't have the sound card drivers setup. Dunno why , it was weird.

Not so much much helpful advice, but if I were you before you get too deep into HyperSpin, change to Launchbox...it's FAR less hassle to set up, looks better, & just works. Hyperspin is nice & all, but after using LB for a while I find HS too flashy & in your face.

try removing the bezels in hyperspin and then rebooting your machine. also make sure you installed all of the add ons and drivers when setting it up. It took me a few weeks until i finally got the hang of hyperspin but its so so easy to use when you get familiar with the ins and outs. im up to 50+ different systems now and i love it. If you are stuck and want to just go for a setup out of the box have a look at arcade punks hyperspin addition. youll need a mega account (works out at about a fiver for a month) to download it but its 230+gb of systems that you just have to unzip on your d: and they are ready to go. A few systems need adition downloads like the gamecube and psp to get full sets but a lot of others are full. if you need any help feel free to pm me.

Not helpful but, until I read this thread, I forgot just how much of a pain in the backside Hyperspin was to set up and maintain.

Once you get to grips with it it's actually not too bad, & adding systems becomes easier the more of it you do. In saying that, personally I feel Launchbox blows it away on most fronts.

I setup hyper spin in the very early beta days, I'm still on version 1, I haven't touched it since and it just works, I do remember it being a pain to get my head around at the start but worth learning rather than downloading a preconfigured setup.

What's launchbox look like on a low res arcade monitor?
Just looking at the google images it doesn't look like it would work well at 240p, I might install it just for a look

Ooh good question, I'd say it's more suited to more modern displays...haven't heard of it being used at 15Khz (which I suppose makes HS the preferred choice for low res screens ). I maintain though that it's a 'better' frontend!
