HyperXMLspin for Retro-FE
« on: June 16, 2020, 04:12:19 PM »
Hello, I am announcing that the HyperXMLspin software for the Hyperspin frontend is now compatible with Retro-FE.
You can find it on http://r0man0.free.fr

For those who do not know this software, it is an application with multiple functionalities:

Search your games in the database, and be able to play them.
Create collections of your multi-system games: for example all your zelda or mario games in all your collections united under a single playable collection in the Retro-FE interface.
Create a collection with all the favorites of all your collections
Possibility of being able to add, delete later.
All your artworks, videos and stories are copied in NTFS symlink format (does not take up space on NTFS hard drives), so the presentation is the same as in your current collections.
Several search criteria: Name, manufacturer, year, genre, clones, favorites ...
Many other functions explained in the read me file contained in the archive.

Thanks much for your program and your efforts.  I was testing this out.  So I downloaded it:

Set my front end to Retrofe.
Set my frontend diretory to c:\retrofe where my collections, meta, etc are.
Clicked check medias.
set video preview to WMP

When I do a search works fine, videos, logs etc show up.  click a game.  Click on the xbox controller and the game doesnt launch.  For retrofe I use rocketlauncher as my launcher for everything. 

If I change it to hyperspin and run through the same process on my hyperspin setup games launch fine.

20200617213812 : (HyperXMLspin)#00206 Hyperxmlspin Search_Results run "C:\Hyperspin\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncher.exe" "Sega Master System" "Bram Stoker's Dracula (Europe)"
20200617213812 : (HyperXMLspin)#00273 Hyperxmlspin Hide/Show Hotkey #0=1

When I launch out with hyperspin selected it launches via RL no problem.

When I check the log I do not see any launching happening from retrofe.  Thank you in advance for  your help!

Seems to be the same.  I deleted my hyperxmlspin.ini. Ran through the setup. When search and find a game and click play nothing happens with rocketlauncher as my launcher.  Log has this:

Ok Dougan78 the line
20200620075938 : (HyperXMLspin)#00206 Hyperxmlspin Search_Results run "C:\Retrofe\"
mean that the rocketlauncher dir and the rom name have not been found:
so in order to fix that ,can you post here :
the file "settings.conf" from the collection you run the game ,
and the launcher file "rocketlauncher.conf" from your launchers.windows folder

Hi dougan78 , there is no problems with both files . Can you try again with this new executable and send me your hyperxmlspin.log file ?

I've made some tests with my rocketlauncher and there is no problems , that's curious  :o

So I ran it initially and the log indicated it was looking for the launcher file in c:\retrofel\launcher.windows\rocketlauncher.conf and could not find it.  So i copied my launcher folder to launcher.windows and it works.  An additional question I had is it appears that it searches the meta data based on the xml files in the meta folder.  I know some of my systems are using include.txt files.  So for instance on C64 I use include.txt to get rid of some of the multidisc games that really only boot off disc 1 anyway.  So when I search in hyperxmlspin it will show all the discs based on them being in the Commodore 64.xml vs adhering to the include.txt and searching based on that. 

Let me know if you need help with testing anything else.  Will play with it some more.  Thanks a bunch!

Ok Dougan78, so i need to know what was your launcher folder name to set hyperxmlspin more compatible.
For Games from include.txt file i will add an option into Extra button in next updated version.
I'm waiting for possible bug submissions before posting a new updated version
So do not hesitate to submit bug and requests

I have been using retrofe for a year or two.  Launchers on windows have always been in retrofe\launchers folder but I havenít updated to latest yet so maybe thatís new.  Thanks for considering the include.txt thing.

Starting to put it through its paces more.  If it could index all systems listed in the main.txt instead of everything in meta that would be great.  Not absolutely necessary as should be able to just remove the xml files from meta folder.

If I launch from retrofe search and donít launch a game that works fine.  If I launch,search,play game, retrofe doesnít return.  I need to end task and relaunch.  Updated to .10 as well and tested with same result.  Windows 7 is if that matters.  Thanks so much!

Here's a new beta to fix end task & relaunch , for systems listed in the main.txt , that's already done except if file could not be found at : \collections\Main\main.txt

sorry for the delay , i've not been mailed for your second post because i've not answered for the first one  ;)

Launch issue is indeed fixed.  Nice work!

I guess I had my file names confused.  I mean, it would be nice if it only scanned for systems listed in the:  C:\Retrofe\collections\Main\menu.txt rather than every xml file in the meta folder.
