More or less off-topic, but make sure you check your cpu usage during emulation when using Hyperspin.

The Hyperspin menu is a real cpu hog and does not reduce it's own cpu usage when the emulator is running. Instead, the menu continues to use a ton of cpu power playing animations and eye candy while it is in the background. I guess if you have a really fast machine that can handle this, this might not matter to you. But for me it was a dealbreaker. Emulators that worked fine without Hyperspin suddenly started to studder and lag when I was using Hyperspin.

On my quest for an alternative launcher I found Attract Mode. Compared to Hyperspin, it is extremely bare-bones but uses negligible CPU. I have no clue how to make WinUAE work on either.
