RetroFE is free, though if you wish to make any front-end look good you'll probably need to invest in a membership here at EmuMovies. You can find most art for free at the HyperSpin site these days, but EmuMovies is still the site to go for when you want game play videos showing in your front-end.

If you're looking for something relatively easy to set up, then BigBox is definitely worth the investment. RetroFe and AttractMode require a little bit of work with the configurations but they are also excellent once you get them up and running :) Also, like Phulshof mentioned, a membership in emumovies will be necessary to get a lot of the artwork, or if you don't need the movies, then you can download most of the artwork with launchbox/bigbox

I vote go with attract mode. It is very simple to setup and use.

I would say to try and suck down the cost of LaunchBox premium, it is really worth the investment at only $20 for updates for a whole year, and if you don't feel like you need the updates after the subscription expires, you don't even have to renew it!

      View File Atari Classics Controller Pack for RocketLauncher

      Atari Classics Controller Pack for use with RocketLauncher
      Unzip to your RocketLauncher Media Folder

      Games Supported: 268

      About RocketLauncher
      RocketLauncher is not just a launch solution. RocketLauncher is an abstraction layer that ultimately sets the standard in emulators and standardizes key mapping commands. HyperPause is the dream of any emulator menu. The modules break the barriers of compatibility. Rom Mapping solved the lives of collectors. RocketLauncher is definitely the last word in matters of emulators. The choice of Front End has become a matter of mere affinity for design. And besides, you are not forced to follow a single solution, like MESS, you keep using your favorite emulator.
