1. Do you need "joy to key" or any other program if you are using a jamma to pc board,or an ipac?
2. I am using hyperspin frontend, games play blind but work when launched in mame?

1. If you're using an ipac, no. Joy to Key is only necessary if you're using a joystick/gamepad type encoder. Even then, mame supports joysticks so it'd still only be necessary if you're running some app or program that only takes keyboard input. If you're running a jamma board though, double check that you shouldn't be using a jpac instead.

2. I can't help with this, not familiar with hyperspin

3. This question doesn't make sense to me. Asteroids is a vector game, so you want vector lines to appear. This is a good thing. Can you be more specific on what the problem is?

I use an Ipac. If you are using a PC and running MAME and other emulators you will not need joy to key or any other program. If you want to run Steam games also, you may need to use x360ce and/or joytokey depending on the Steam game.

To control Hyperspin you will need either joy2key or Xpadder to move the menu, or you could use Hyperspin Startup Script.

 thank you for all your replies, ok first my vector games like asteroids run ok but there's flickering lines on the screen, like you can see the asteroids being drawn, thats on all vector games.

second, i have a tornado spinner, it will rotate the hyperspin wheel but my arcade joystick will not. now if there a script to be added for this could i get a copy.

 for the ipac question you guys answered that one for me.ty
