Re: Multiple Emulator Frontend

I tried http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/ in the end and it's amazing. Can't recommend it highly enough. The frontend looks really good and it's easy to use.

Thanks for the replies all!

Multiple Emulator Frontend

Hi Guys, Is there a program that will easily allow me to launch all my ROMs from a single frontend in Windows 7? I tried downloading the XBMC Media Centre and using some plugins but it was a nightmare. I want something that I can point at my emulators and if possible, show me thumbnails if they're a...

Re: Bomb Jack Ending?

Thanks for the reply. I think I might carry on with the infinite lives cheat and see if it gets so fast towards the end that the computer either melts or rips a hole in time.

Re: Games Like Jet Set Willy

Nice one, thanks everyone!

I'll start playing my way through the ones you've mentioned. Some I've already played: The Dizzy games are awesome and one day I might actually manage to finish Spellbound so I can move on to the next one ion the series.

So far I've amassed the following: Roland In Time Roland In Space Technician Ted Auf Wiedersehen Monty Any ide...
