      I'm new to this community, just wanted to give thanks to all of the people who sink in their knowledge, effort, & time into this on going evolving project. I am very impressed in what a community like this can accomplish. I'm really enjoying HyperSpin + RocketLauncher despite the fact I still can't figure out why the joystick/Xbox one controller has issues with the front end, but that's not the reason why I'm posting. Anytime I run into problems with a software environment that perplex me, I'm compelled to immerse myself into that environment to gain further knowledge, such as understanding & learning the inner workings of this interesting duet of programs.

      There are hundreds of high/low level computer programming languages out there. I want to learn more...I've managed to teach myself a lot about HTML, Java, flash, etc , which is probably nothing compared to actual programming language...

      So where does one start..... C++? VB Studio? Etc?

      To the People who are involved in this project, are they any programs you could mention or reference material I could study to learn more about this field? College classes or self-taught recommendations?

      All the time i open RocketLauncherUI after of the unzipping, works fine, it upgrades and i can do the basic configurations, after i close it and try to reopen it, it gives me "Event ID 59 SideBySide Error" and it doesn't open anymore. Always gives me SideBySide Error, I checked the View Event report and this is what it says:

      Activation context generation failed for "K:HyperSpin\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncherUI\Rocke tLauncherUI.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "K:HyperSpin\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncherUI\Rocke tLauncherUI.exe.config" on line 0. Invalid Xml Syntax

      It's been over 20 times trying to do it, following many video tutorials and still nothing. PLEASE HELP, how can i fix my problem??

      This is not a thread for help.

      If you bought a HDD with stuff that's free, then that's not our problem. Goto your seller and ask him to fix your issues.

      I'm having similar issues. Also, Sega Model 2 games work flawlessly via RLUI. Sega Naomi/Sega Atomiswave/Hikari games? Not so much. A little buggy. For some reason when you load the game through Rocketlauncher the controls settings automatically go back to default blank, meaning there's no assigned keys for player 1 and 2 coin and start; making it impossible to enter a coin and start. It's weird. And once Demulshooter is loaded you can't change the settings in Demul.

      Sometimes it lets you. Sometimes it doesn't. If anyone figures that out please let me know. It doesn't look like the Dolphin Emulator and PC Games Emulator in RLUI have the Demulshooter option in the emulator settings like Sega Model 2, Sega Naomi, Atomiswave, Hikari. (i.e. for Wii Railshooter games and PC games and Taito TypeX games like HOTD3, Silent Hill Arcade game, etc. that work when using Demulshooter outside of RLUI). Maybe on the next update?

      Just wanted to confirm the pause logo bit. Sorry for just now updating... I read that I needed to manually create the pause folder within the media folder and I need to place the logos in that folder. Which path are we referring to that needs to move? Also do we need to move the folder or just copy the contents and place them in the new folder as well? Would love the direct path of which I need to get the content. Thank you!

      just read the changeLog.txt file at your RL folder.
      All info that you need is there.
