We’ve already listed a number of emulators to be actively used within the emulation systems, like Retropie or Recalbox. So, there are the most popular among them. In fact, it’s not optimal to load all the existing emulators to Retropie, for example, as it can influence on your hardware performance. And it’s really smart to get only the best emulators which are used by hundreds of thousands of retro gamers around the globe. For you to learn them and compare, we’ve prepared a special listing below.
Gameboy was the first handheld portable gaming console, released by Nintendo in 1989 and started the whole industry of handhelds. The great Gameboy features which made it the world popular were the multiple players (via the cable, up to 4 players), extended battery life and affordable price. Not mentioning the portability for gamers to play anywhere and on-the-go.
Emulators: lr-gambatte, lr-tgbdual
ROM files extensions: .7z, .gb and .zip.
ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gb.
The controls configurations: customize the file, located in /opt/retropie/configs/gb/retroarch.cfg
The main feature for using the emulators is that lr-gambatte is good for single playing, while lr-gambatte emulator supports two players connected through the cable over network or parallel on the same system.
Gameboy Advance or GBA
GBA was the next generation handheld console, released by Nintendo in 2001. It featured 32-bit updated graphics and performance.
Emulators :gpSP, lr-gpSP, lr-vba-next, lr-mgba
ROM files extensions: .7z, .gba and .zip.
ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gba.
The controls: files to configure are situated in /opt/retropie/emulators/gpsp/gpsp.cfg for gpSP emulator and in /opt/retropie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg for other emulators.
Note that The Game Boy Advance requires a BIOS file “gba_bios.bin”, which should be placed in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS
NES stands for “The Nintendo Entertainment System”. It is an 8-bit gaming console, firstly released in 1985.
Programm emulators (LibRetro): lr-nestopia, lr-fceumm and lr-quicknes.
ROM files extensions: .7z, .fds, .fig, .mgd, .nes, .sfc, .smc, .swc, and .zip.
NES ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nes.
Also note, that games with the .fds files extension will require the “disksys.rom” file, which must be placed in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS directory. Concerning the controllers, you can set up and configure them using the Retroarch configurations. Add custom controls to the “retroarch.cfg” file in /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg directory.
SNES (or “Super Nintendo Entertainment System”) was later released in 1991 and was the 4th generation video game consoles produced by Nintendo.
Emulators (RetroArch): lr-snes9x-2010, lr-snes9x, lr-snes9x2002, PiSNES, lr-snes9x2005, lr-armsnes, snes9x-rpi. Each of them accepts the ROMs: .7z, .bin, .fig, .mgd, .sfc, .smc, .swc and .zip.
The controls configurations: through the custom “retroarch.cfg” file which you can find in /opt/retropie/configs/snes/retroarch.cfg
Controller configurations: are kept in “snes9x.cfg” file that is located in /opt/retropie/emulators/pisnes.
Also note, that the games with more than 2 players are supported only for lr-snes9x2010 emulator. To activate the feature, switch on the multi-tap option by adding this line to the “retroarch.cfg” file (using the leafpad command):
input_libretro_device_p2 = "257"
Nintendo 64 or N64
Nintendo 64 (or N64) was released by Nintendo in 1996 and that started the era of the 5th generation gaming consoles.
Emulators: Mupen64plus, lr-Mupen64plus, lr-GLupeN64. (The recommended one is the Mupen64plus as it has better performance.)
ROM files: .z64, .n64, and .v64 files.
ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/n64 folder.
Controls regulation: for lr-Mupen64plus and lr-GLupeN64 the controls are regulated via the “retroarch.cfg”. For Mupen64plus (starting from Retropie 3.3) they are configured automatically. So, the files to modify in this case are located at: /opt/retropie/configs/n64/mupen64plus.cfg and /opt/retropie/configs/n64/InputAutoCfg.ini.
Note, that at least Raspberry Pi 2 needed for a good N64 performance. Also beware, that the performance gets worse with the HD screen resolution. For the best experience don’t mind using low resolution. For example, for RetroPie 4.0 the best resolution would be 320×240 px.
Nintendo DS (where the “DS” is “dual screen”) is a handheld portable video gaming console released by Nintendo in 2004. The main feature of this console was the two LCD screens, one of which was a touchscreen. Also, it had a built-in microphone and a wireless connection. It is a unique application with a bunch of frontends to provide users with a simple interface.
Emulators: lr-desmume and DraStic.
The ROMs extensions: .nds and .zip format.
The ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nds.
The controls directories: for lr-desmume – opt/retropie/configs/nds/retroarch.cfg and for DraStic – /opt/retropie/configs/nds/drastic/system.
Note, that the DraStic is a beta software, though it runs very good, unlike lr-desmume, which is very laggy even when used on an overclocked RPi 2/3.
PlayStation or PS1 or PSX
Sony PlayStation came to the market as the 5th generation CD-based game console and was released by Sony in 1994. Besides playing games, PS also could playback audio CDs and some models even could play Video CDs. Was one of the best selling computer entertainment platforms.
Special emulators: lr-pcsx-rearmed, lr-beetle-psx and pcsx-rearmed.
ROMs: .cue, .cbn, .img, .iso, .m3u, .mdf, .pbp, .toc, .z and .znx
The ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nds.
Controllers configuration: for lr-desmume – /opt/retropie/configs/psx/pcsx.cfg and for other two – /opt/retropie/configs/psx/retroarch.cfg.
The BIOS file “SCPH1001.BIN” is needed. You should place it in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS directory.
PlayStation 2 or PS2
PS2 was a successor of PSX (PS1) and the 7th generation gaming console. It was released in 2000 and was the best selling entertainment system of all time with over 155 million units sold worldwide. Besides gaming, it also played the audio and video CDs, DVDs, and had the Internet connection.
Emulator: only PCSX2.
ROMs: .iso, .img, .bin, .mdf, .z, .z2, .bz2, .dump, .cso, .ima and .gz.
The ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ps2.
Controllers configuration: can be done via Retropie GUI on the first run.
Plasystation 2 BIOS file is needed for the emulator to function. Load it to /home/pi/.config/PCSX2/bios/.
Wii was released by Nintendo in 2006. The most modern console available in Retropie. Was the 7th generation gaming console to compete with Xbox 360 and PS3. Was the first device with a pointing remote controller that could detect movement in 3D.
ROMs extension: only .iso.
ROMs directory: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/wii.
Controllers configuration: //opt/retropie/configs/wii/Config.
NOTE! Can’t be ported to Raspberry Pi (or other ARM) and although the ARM community discusses the opportunities on forums, the solution is still unreachable due to hardware performance limitations. (Introduced only for familiarization)
MAME Arcade emulators
MAME or Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator is the app to emulate arcade machine games. It doesn’t emulate a console, but different arcade machines. Consequently, MAME represents thousands of retro games, rather very old, released by different manufacturers, which used to deliver them with their own unique arcade machines.
Emulators list: mame4all-pi, lr-mame2000, lr-mame2003, lr-mame2010, lr-mame2014, lr-mame2016, AdvanceMAME 0.94, AdvanceMAME 1.4, AdvanceMAME 3.
The ROMs: all use .zip format.
ROMs locations: The ROMs are stored in the shared folders, which means they are used by more than one emulator. You can find these folders by names, which have the RetroPie/roms/ in the beginning of the directory and finishes with: /arcade, /mame-libretro, /fba and /neogeo (for example, RetroPie/roms/neogeo). Thus, you need to specify the arcade emulator version which matches your ROMs.
The things are a more complicated with MAME emulators contorls. Different emulators belong to different directories where you can find the controls configuration files to modify:
- for mame4all-pi the path is /opt/retropie/configs/mame-mame4all/cfg/default.cfg
- for lr-mame2000 – /opt/retropie/configs/lr-mame2000/retroarch.cfg
- for lr-mame2003, lr-mame2010, lr-mame2014 and lr-mame2016 – /opt/retropie/configs/mame-libretro/retroarch.cfg
- for AdvanceMAME 0.94, AdvanceMAME 1.4 and AdvanceMAME 3 – /opt/retropie/configs/mame-advmame
FBA Arcade emulators
FBA stands for FinalBurn Alpha that is a Multiple Arcade Emulator just like MAME is, but supports only Konami, NeoGeo, Cave and Capcom games.
Emulators: lr-fbalpha, lr-fbalpha2012 and PiFBA
ROM files: .7z .zip, .zip
ROMs directories: like MAME, FBA uses 5 shared folders – /arcade, /mame-libretro, /fba and /neogeo (with RetroPie/roms/ as the start of the path, e.g. RetroPie/roms/neogeo). Specification of the emulator is needed!
Different emulators have different controls configuration files directories:
- for lr-fbalpha and lr-fbalpha2012: /opt/retropie/configs/fba/retroarch.cfg
- for PiFBA: /opt/retropie/emulators/pifba/fba2x.cfg
Neo Geo is a cartridge-based arcade emulator, which brought the arcade machine fun at users homes. Released by SNK in 1990. So, it is emulated with one unique emulator. Also, the NeoGeo games can be played via FBA emulators.
Emulators list: GnGeo-Pi, lr-fbalpha, lr-fbalpha2012 and PiFBA.
The ROMs: .7z.zip and .zip.
ROMs locations: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/neogeo
The controllers can be configured in /opt/retropie/configs/neogeo/gngeorc directory for GnGeo-Pi emulator. For FBA emulators controls configuration, see the FBA emulator part.
Gamecube is a 6th generation gaming console, released by Nintendo in 2001 to compete with PlayStation and XBOX. It was the first Nintendo’s console which used the optical disks, supported online gaming and could connect to GBA to use it as a second screen and controller.
The ROMs: .iso
ROMs location: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gc
As the Gamecube can be played only via the Dolphin emulator, unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to run it on Raspberry Pi or any other ARM. It will launch but will be unbearably slow.
Dolphin is an emulator for just two consoles: GameCube and Wii. It’s a special emulator to talk about. The matter is that it is included in Retropie, but the Linux version only. Also, it’s possible to install this emulator on Raspberry Pi, but its performance is close to unplayable.
There are quite a lot of people who have tried to do that and discussing their experience on forums and social media. And all of those who have ever tried to launch the Dolphin emulator on Raspbian say, that it’s extremely laggy and slow.
Of course, the reason for it is in the low performance of the Raspberry Pi (as well as many other ARM) hardware. And even if you overclock your RPi, or will use the hardware graphics acceleration (which is supported by ExaGear) you won’t receive the desirable quality.
The ROMs extensions: the ISO disk images are used. The ISO ripping is carried out by the user and may require additional apps (like Rawdump, Friidump or CleanRip). Also, due to file formats sizes the GameCube and Wii disks have, splitting some games into several ISO files and reassembling them inside the emulator is a widely used practice.
DOSBox is an emulator of DOS operating system for retro gamers to enjoy very old DOS PC games. DOSBox uses SDL-library and emulates CPU 286/386; FileSystem, such as XMS and EMS; graphics: VESA, CGA, EGA, VGA, Tandy and Hercules; Gravis and SoundBlaster Ultra Sound. Officially released in 2010, it had been unofficially being used since 2002.
Operating systems: compatibility with Raspberry Pi is provided with RISC OS, Fedora, FreeBSD, Gentoo Linux and Debian operating system packages. Currently, it’s also integrated into Retropie.
The ROMs extensions: use specific image files that can be downloaded from a special GOG website.
The ROMs directory: need to be placed in a specific directory, different from the “dosbox” folder. So, if you created “dosbox” folder in home/Pi/Retropie directory, so the ROMs should be kept in the same directory, but in a different folder, for instance, “DOS-GAMES” folder.
So, every time you install and start a game, you should download it in that folder and use the “mount c ~*your game folder path” command to connect the game ROM to the DOSBox emulator.
In general, this kind of an emulator is very simple and user-friendly. Easy to install and easy to set up and configure the controllers. All the process are guided by the clear prompts.
I have already mentioned the ExaGear Desktop software is a retro gaming emulation system to play old and medium age x86 PC games on ARM devices. Here, I’d like to uncover one more feature od ExagEar – it can be loaded to Retropie as an additional emulator.
The main convenience is that it becomes possible to run PC games right from the Retropie GUI. So, we can truthfully say, that Retopie is extended to PC playing in addition to consoles. The feature was released in 2017.
The ROMs: .exe and specific files from the GOG website.
ROMs location: No specific folders needed. You can download everything right into /home/pi/RetroPie
We’ve got a detailed guide on how to install and run ExaGear PC games emulator within Retropie – read it here UpdaterAlso to get a quick tutorial watch the video guide:
2018 FIFA World Cup - Wikipedia
It occurred to me recently that not everyone knows what an emulator is or how to use one. Particularly among console gamers and other people who haven’t used PCs so much. Every gamer with a PC should know how to use an emulator, so this post is going to serve as an introduction for those who need it. If you already know how to use emulators, you can probably skip this one, but if you don’t know how to use emulators, this post will change everything for you. Let’s get started.
What is an emulator
In computing, an emulator is hardware or software that enables one computer system (called the host) to behave like another computer system (called the guest). An emulator typically enables the host system to run software or use peripheral devices designed for the guest system.
That sounds a little technical, so here’s my explanation:
Emulators are programs that play console games right on your computer.
More exciting, right You get the emulator, which is a program on your computer, and you open a file, which is the game you want to play. Then you play it. This means that your PC is not just limited to PC games – it can play everything from Nintendo to Playstation 2. There’s even emulators in the works for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It will be a while, but we’ll eventually see emulators for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. And whatever consoles they make after those, too. No game ever stays console exclusive forever.
What can emulators do that consoles can’t
The most obvious benefit of using emulators is that your PC can now play almost every game ever released. You can also switch between consoles without having to actually change the hardware you are using, or connect two dozen machines to your TV. Aside from that, there are actually quite a few other benefits.
For one, you can use any controller you want. There a ton of controllers available for computers, but you can use an Xbox 360 controller or Playstation 4 controller, or even classic style controllers made for the PC.
Games also often look and perform a lot better when using an emulator. Graphics can be improved, made more clear and crisp, and even rendered at 1080p or higher. The older sprite-based games can be smoothed over, making them appear much better then they did natively.
There are a lot of other improvements, too. Many emulators allow you to play multiplayer over the internet. Game Genie or GameShark abilities are often built-in, and most emulators allow you to save and load your state anywhere at any time, or fast forward through slow parts of the game.
How do I get started
The first part is downloading an emulator. What emulator you run depends on what console you want to emulate. There’s different emulators for different consoles, and many consoles have more than one emulator. This is the program that is going to load your game.
Here’s a quick run down on what some of the popular ones are for every console. I’ll drill down more into the specifics for each console in the future, but this should be enough for you to explore and get started.
Please note – this is not a complete list at all. I’m not even listing most consoles. For example, there are emulators for Commodore 64, Atari 2600, Game Gear, Sega Dreamcast, most arcade systems, and more. This list is just a few examples for more popular consoles. I’ll give you some links later in this article where you can find the rest.
NES: FCEUX is a very good choice. It’s a very powerful emulator with great compatibility. If you are more than a casual player, this emulator also offers debugging and hacking tools, and is very popular for recording tool assisted speedruns.
Super Nintendo: Snes9x is the gold standard of SNES emulators. It can play almost any Super Nintendo game, and has been ported to everything from Android to the Sega Dreamcast.
Nintendo 64: Project64 is good, but they recently added in opt-out malware in their installer, so be careful when you install it. If you want to avoid the risk all together, you can get an older version from The Emulator Zone or try an alternative like Mupen64Plus.
Gamecube/Wii: Dolphin is the only emulator in this category, but it’s a great program. It can play Gamecube and Wii games in full 1080p and even features networked multiplayer. There’s an Android version, too.
Playstation: There are a lot of options here, but PCSX-Reloaded is my favorite. The windows version seems to be unmaintained right now, but it still works well. You can download builds here. ePSXe is also good.
Playstation 2: PCSX2 is the only real option for Playstation 2. It’s not perfect, but compatibility is still high. They claim that over 94% of games are playable, although you might encounter some glitches. The emulator is in very heavy development though, and they even release a monthly progress report on how things are coming along.
Where can I get games
This is a touchy subject, and a lot of people ask this around different forums only to find their post has been deleted, or even worse, they have been banned.
The reason for this is that downloading games from the internet is illegal. Emulation websites like to play it very safe, so they usually wont allow any discussion about where to get games at all. Don’t worry – I’ll point you in the right direction – just be careful who you ask about this.
Update: After this article was published, I posted it to Reddit’s /r/gaming. Less than 24 hours later, the post was deleted and I was permanently banned from the forum. The official reason was “Enabling or attempting to enable piracy”. Keep in mind, that is only for saying that places to download them exist, you just have to Google for them, while otherwise stating that I do not condone piracy. So be careful when talking about this kind of thing online, because a lot of websites have a zero tolerance policy.
Okay, so where can I get games
The only legal way to get games is to rip them yourself or play the original copy. This is easy for things like Playstation games, where you can use any software capable of creating an ISO from a CD, or just play it directly from the CD by putting it in your cd rom drive. It gets a little trickier for more complicated discs like the Wii, where have to rip the disc using homebrew software on an actual Wii. Making backups of cartridge games is harder still, requiring special hardware to read the cartridge. None of that is impossible, though, just a little tricky, and there are guides all over the internet to help you.
That being said, there are places on the internet where you can download games, you just have to Google for them. For legal reasons, this website, along most other websites, cannot condone this.
All I can say is that if you are going to try downloading games from the internet, be very careful what you download. Any sites that offer files of questionable legality may try to serve you malware. Know what kind of files you are downloading, and delete anything you download that doesn’t match. For example, Super Nintendo games always end in
fig. Disc based games will usually be either
iso or a
bin file. When in doubt, search Google and find out what kind of files you should be looking for. Never open any files ending in
bat under any circumstances, and it couldn’t hurt to have a virus scanner running, either.
Update: After this article was published, I posted it to Reddit’s /r/gaming.
What is a bios and where can I get it
A bios is the software that is running on the console itself, and is sometimes needed for an emulator to work. For example, Playstation and Playstation 2 emulators commonly a bios file. You only need one of these per console for games on that console to work.
Finding bios files falls under the same legal issues as games, so see my point above. It’s completely possible to rip the bios legally from your console, and there are guides on the internet to help you. If you are going to try finding it online, be safe and know what you are downloading, run a virus scanner, and never open executable files.
Where can I find more emulators
The Emulator General wiki is the best source I’ve seen. They list emulators for over 60 systems, with notes and comparisons, along with emulators that run on other consoles and handhelds, recommended plugins, FAQs, modding, and more.
The Emulator Zone is also a fantastic resource, and lists emulators for all major consoles, along with utilities and news, and has been around for a very long time.
What is a frontend
A frontend is a program that lists all of your games in one place and makes it easier to run them. Instead of opening the emulator and selecting the file you want to open, you can browse through a nicer looking list, select the game you want to play, and let the frontend take care of launching the emulator. They usually take a little bit of work to set up properly, but make things a lot easier and nicer to use once you do.
Try checking out LaunchBox, Emulation Station, Hyperspin, or you can add your games directly into Steam, if you would prefer to keep your classic and modern games all in one place.
Where can I learn more
The emulation community is huge, and this article is only a primer. The Emulator General wiki mentioned above is a huge resource that I highly recommend looking at. There’s forums over at The Emulation Zone, and some emulators, like Dolphin, also have an active community. There’s also a great community of people on Reddit at /r/emulation.
A note about next-generation emulators
You might see Youtube videos or websites out there showing perfectly working emulators for current generation consoles. All of these websites and videos are scams. When you download them, they either charge you money (for nothing), or install a lot of malware on your system, so this needs to be very clear.
There are no emulators available for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, or Wii U. Any websites or Youtube videos claiming otherwise are scams.
There actually are emulators in development for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. They are coming along well and progressing quickly, but they can’t be used to play commercial games yet. If you want to keep track of their progress, check out the Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3, or the Xbox 360 emulator, Xenia.
As for anything more modern, we’ll just have to wait. It takes a long time of a system being out before emulators are made for it, but it will happen eventually. And that’s just for the few console exclusives that are still made. Most Xbox One and Playstation 4 games are coming out natively for PC now, so don’t forget to check Steam before worrying that you wont be able to play a game.
If you didn’t know anything about emulators before, this can be a lot to take in all at once. Pick one console that you’d like to try out and start there. After getting to know one emulator well, the others will be much easier to figure out. Remember that the emulation community can be very helpful, so don’t be afraid to reach out for help TerrorStrike
No$gba Emulator 2.5c - The Emulator Zone
I rarely start a blog by referring to another one, but if you have not take a few min and read through our “Build a Home Arcade Machine” post. It will give you the high level overview of everything involved in building a home arcade, both from a hardware and software perspective. Setup HyperSpin MAME and Hyperlaunch – The Full Guide is designed for noobs to individuals with intermediate knowledge of setting up a home arcade machine.
Here is a video walk through of HyperSpin
This blog is specifically designed to find, install, and configure HyperSpin, Hyperlaunch (rocket launcher), and Mame. Also keep in mind that HyperSpin is only supported in Windows/Android, but this entire guide assumes you are using a Windows pc. Note: You will see some people selling “HyperSpin Drives” they say are ready to go… They will save you the hassle of finding and collection emulators, roms, and artwork files, but you will still need to configure everything which is the most time consuming part. Also if you need to troubleshoot anything you will have no idea what to do. I strongly suggest building it yourself. This guide walks you through everything step by step so if you have issues later you will be able to quickly identify and remedy. It is fairly easy to download the games, artwork, etc in bulk. If you have a “hyperspin drive”, then you can use this guide to get everything setup and working.
Please check out our control panel kits as they will save you a ton of time setting up your new arcade.
Need a cabinet Check out our Bartop Arcade Deluxe Kit, the most popular available. It goes together via camlock system with just a philips screwdriver like Ikea furnature. You can even get high quality graphics! See it here
Definitions (The build a home arcade machine post above goes into greater detail)
- HyperSpin – The frontend pretty arcade interface you look at when selecting systems and games
- HyperLaunch (Rocket Launcher) – The work horse in the back ground that will launch the system and the game based on what you select in HyperSpin – Note: It is now called “Rocket Launcher” so in this guide those terms are interchangeable.
- MAME/Emulator – Software that makes your computer think it is the arcade machine or console system
- Rom file – Is the specific arcade or console game cartridge/cd
- Get the Setup Files
- Get everything installed
- Where/How to get game roms
- Setup Hyperlaunch and MAME
- Clean up your game list
- Launching HyperSpin
- Get Game Artwork and Video previews
- Cleaning Up HyperSpin Systems Wheel
Get the Setup Files
To get started here are the download files you will need. You will need to create free accounts at both HyperSpin and Hyperlaunch to gain access to the download files. Do not install or open anything yet, just get it all downloaded.
Get MAME here. I am using a 64-bit Windows.
Get HyperSpin here. Get both the main install and then whatever upgrade is available based on the latest date published.
Get HyperLaunch (RocketLauncher) here. (archive password if you are asked is “www.rlauncher.com” without quotes)
Start Installing Files
Let’s start with HyperSpin since all files, etc will be placed in this master folder. You will probably want to put it on the root of the drive you are going to be putting a majority of the install on for example c:\HyperSpin or d:\HyperSpin etc. I chose to put it on my root of C:\ drive. Make sure and call the folder HyperSpin.
You will end up with this…
Do the same thing to the HyperSpin folder with the most updated version of HyperSpin and overwrite any files it asks you to.
Next we will install RocketLauncher by extracting it into a folder you create called RocketLauncher. Since I did mine on C at C:\RocketLauncher I will extract into a folder I created called RocketLauncher (archive password if you are asked is “www.rlauncher.com” without quotes) DO Not install it into your HyperSpin folder as it will cause issues
We will put mame in our HyperSpin\Emulator\MAME folder. NOTE: You will need to create a folder called MAME in your HyperSpin\Emulator folder.
The MAME installer is a self extracting archive, so double click it and extract to that newly created folder.
You will end up with all the MAME files in that folder
Getting Roms or Game Files
Before we add MAME to HyperLaunch so we can launch games in HyperSpin, I want to make sure you have your ROMs folder setup or created. You need to create a folder on your hard drive where you will keep game roms for all systems. Keep in mind you will need a bit of space especially if you want to do more modern systems like PS1, PS2, DreamCast, etc.
So again, create a “roms” folder on that drive and inside create another folder called “MAME”. Put your arcade MAME roms in that folder. They will be in zip or 7z and chd format. Do not unzip them.
If you need to get the rom files they are all over the internet. We do not host them here, but you may want to understand the term torrent and how to get them. We have a full guide on bit torrent protocol here. The best public site I know of you can access here. You will want to get both the roms and chd MAME merged titled like “[FREE] MAME 0.188 CHDs (merged)” and [FREE] MAME 0.188 ROMs (merged). For this writing .188 is the latest version, you will get the newest version of both the emulator and rom/chd files.
So have your roms and mame folders created with the roms in it as the picture above.
RocketLauncher and MAME Setup
We will now get to where RocketLauncher can “launch” or start your mame games. Open RocketLauncherUI in the folder C:\HyperSpin\RockerLauncher\RocketLauncherUI. Keep in mind we are opening the “UI” not the rlauncher.exe so make sure you have the correct folder. If it tells you there are updates go ahead (click check updates at bottom) and apply them using the built in auto updater.
We need to add HyperSpin as the Default frontend so it can pull in the settings from HyperSpin. In RocketLauncherUI click the RocketLauncherUI tab at the top. Add a frontend with the green plus sign and do not forget to save with the picture of the disk. See pic below for settings.
Once you have added HyperSpin, highlight it then press the red circle to set it as default. You will see some systems load on the left. Then press the folder icon with the pin to set HyperSpin as the default system.
We need to set some general setting so RocketLauncher uses the correct hyperspin locations and default settings. Under the “General Settings” tab, Rocket Launcher Tab, Base Settings select HyperSpin from the drop down for the Default Plug in. Next click the eye glass under paths “Default Frontend Path” and select your hyperspin.exe file.
Congrats. You have linked RocketLauncher with HyperSpin. We now need to add MAME location information to RocketLauncher.
- Click on Global on the far left (under systems)
- Then go to the emulator tab
- Click the green plus arrow and fill out the information for your MAME, then press the disk save button. My settings are below:
Now click on the MAME system on the far left, then emulators tab. You will need to set your ROM path to your MAME roms folder and then a default emulator by pressing the magnifying glass and selecting the global “MAME” emulator we just created.
RocketLauncher now has the details it needs to play games in MAME. With MAME still highlighted Select the games tab at the top and then hit the blue arrow. This will bounce your rom collection off of the MAME games database in HyperSpin which is located in C:\HyperSpin\Databases\MAME.xml. It was created when you extracted HyperSpin.
The green are games found against the master list and the red are ones in which you do not have roms. In most cases you will have the correct version and the red will hopefully be all the clones available for the games that junk up your HyperSpin wheel in my opinion. I like having the original game only.
Test your setup by selecting a game in green and pressing the red rocket ship to launch it.
Success (I hope)! It should have launched the game. Press the left then right keys on your keyboard to accept and go into the game.
We will go through setting up controls later, but I know you want to play.
Here are the default keyboard buttons for many games:
- 5 – Insert Coin
- 1 – Start
- Arrows – Move
- Ctrl – Action Button 1
- Alt – Action Button 2
- Space – Action Button 3
- Mouse – Analog Control (needed for some games)
- P – Pause
- ESC – Quit MAME
- F2 – Service Mode
- Tab – MAME Options Menu
You can press the “tab” key on your keyboard and configure controls. Also check out our guide on configuring your controls in HyperSpin using joytokey!
MAME ini file
You will want to configure specific MAME settings well as define to MAME where the rom files are located. We will use this info later so HyperSpin does not have games visible that you do not have rom files which will junk up your wheel. You need to generate a MAME.ini or settings file to do this.
- Open a CMD prompt (hit start and search for “CMD” without quotes and press enter)
- type “cd\” and press enter
- now the location of your mame file by “cd HyperSpin\Emulators\MAME” press enter
- now type “mame64 -cc” press enter you will need a space between 4 and -cc
Open the newly created MAME.ini file with notepad in the C:\HyperSpin\Emulators\MAME folder
You can put the path to your roms for now and save the file back. Again, this is the file you can use later to make changes to your MAME setup if needs be.
Getting HyperSpin to use RocketLauncher
We need to let HyperSpin know we are going to use RocketLauncher to launch games. For the upgraded 1.4 hyperspin or higher we will simply change some settings text.
Open your HyperSpin\Settings\Settings.ini file and set the path were you installed RocketLauncher. Example Hyperlaunch_Path=C:\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncher.exe This way when we select “HyperLaunch” (the old way to launch games) in a few min, it will actually use rocketlauncher.
Configuring HyperSpin via HyperHQ
We need to make a couple configuration changes in HyperHQ which is the program designed to control HyperSpin. It is a green icon in your C:\HyperSpin folder.
By default HyperSpin will not launch in full screen. Go to Main Settings – Screen tab and select full screen.
Now we need to put in some MAME settings.
- Go to Wheel Setting tab and select MAME from the drop down
- Set Execution to Hyperlaunch (this will use RocketLauncher)
- Hit the folder next to executable and locate your MAME64.exe file
- Now put in the rom path to your MAME roms
- Add the extensions of your rom files and put a comma in between, example “zip,7z” without the quotes
- Close the program
We can also tell HyperSpin to only show MAME games in which we have roms in our roms folder. Otherwise you will see the entire list of games including ones you do not have. With MAME system still selected hit the “Navagation/Themes” tab and check the “roms only” box.
HyperSpin Artwork and Finishing up
You now have everything to play HyperSpin. It will not be pretty, but it will play. Go ahead and test HyperSpin by launching it. The executable is in the HyperSpin folder (red icon).
Go into your MAME wheel and launch a game. You will notice you do not have any artwork, but everything should work as expected.
The esc key will get you out of HyperSpin.
Artwork and Game Preview Videos
So now you will want artwork to get the full benefit of HyperSpin. I am a “software” for free kind of guy, but you have a decision to make here. Getting the artwork is huge pain in the ass for free. if you spend some $, getting artwork and videos is automated for all systems you add to HyperSpin.
Free long way
I am going to give you the $.02 tour on the free way before you decide to spend some money and have it automate.
- You need to download each game artwork theme from here one by one and place in your C:\HyperSpin\Media\MAME\Themes folder
- You can get the low quality video snaps from Emumovies website here. You will put them in your video folder located at C:\HyperSpin\Media\MAME\Video
As you do this game artwork will show up in HyperSpin.
Automated way – There is a program called HyperSync that will automatically add higher quality videos and all the game themes etc. You will need Platinum membership ($45 for lifetime) at HyperSpin-fe.com and paid membership at Emumovies ($30 for 1 year then $20 per year or $65 lifetime). So you are in for around $75 which is a lot for software, but in my opinion it is total worth it just so you can set it and forget it. Also, contributing to both companies for all they provide I believe is reasonable.
Once you upgrade at both sites then you can open HyperSync located in the C:\HyperSpin\HyperSync Cloud folder.
Click the picture of the bathroom man and enter your credentials for both sites and okay.
Press the picture of the arcade then select MAME and yes you want to set it up.
- Select update database in the bottom left
- Select “default all” settings under each of the three tabs System, video, and Main Menu
- Very important to press the “set” button next to assigned to MAME at the top.
When you pressed update database you should see the games listed. Make sure and turn on box artwork etc.
Close it out.
Next click the Sync tab and select MAME and all media.
Press Begin Sync and get a beer or coffee. It will do everything for you.
You will now notice all the artwork and videos are in place when you launch HyperSpin!
Cleaning Up HyperSpin Systems Wheel
You will notice by default HyperSpin has many more systems than just MAME. I am going to show you how to clean it up if you wish. Keep in mind you can follow this guide over and over with other emulators and systems to add everything to your HyperSpin install.
Go into HyperHQ again and click Main Menu Wizard tab, then remove item from Main Menu
You can just remove from the database so it simply will not show up.
So this probably took you a few hours, much less than it did my first time, and much less than it did for me to write this up. It is somewhat involved and I have not seen a seamless guide putting together all of the pieces so hence this one. You should be able to use the same principals above for each emulator as you setup all the systems.

Building an Emulation PC for an Arcade Machine « SOLID-orange
In the past few days, Game dumper and FTP Server updated payloads have been released for the PS4, and are now compatible with firmware 4.55. Developer Xvortex has not updated his github with the sources for those yet.
Additionally, a PS4Hen 4.55 version of the PS4 Exploit is now available, which appears to contain the Holy Grail payload and debut settings “autoloaded” as part of the exploit. (In other words: running PS4Hen is a shortcut that seems equivalent to running the original 4.55 exploit Holy Grail Payload Debug Settings Payload)
In parallel, Developer Al-Azif has significantly updated his tool ps4-exploit-host (currently at version 0.4.0.1) in order to include all the latest exploit updates and payloads. The latest version also supports multiple firmwares, for a tool that is quickly becoming the best “all in one” way to access all payloads and exploits easily.
- Related: How to get your hands on a PS4 running firmware 4.5 or lower
Until the dust settles on firmware 4.55, I feel using Al-Azif’s tool is still the best and easiest thing to do for people who want to play with the exploits: the developer has been diligently updating his tool to be reasonably up to date with the latest payloads. His latest version in particular contains the Holy Grail payload (the PS4Hen), as well as the dumper and ftp payload.
Download PS4-Exploit-Host (includes PS4Hen, Dumper Payload, FTP Payload for 4.55)
You can download PS4-Exploit-Host from Al-Azif’s github here.
Now with that new version, you only need to run ps4-exploit-host.exe on your PC, then you can sit on your PS4 and you wont need to go back to your PC. On the PS4 web browser, just select HEN or FTP etc… and the corresponding payload will automatically send from your PC.Most comments are automatically approved, but in some cases, it might take up to 24h for your comments to show up on the site, if they need manual moderation Download TeamViewer for 8 Thanks for your understanding
