POLL: Which Front-End is your favorite

Favorite Front-End (FE's that support video snaps)

  1. 1. Which is your favorite front-end?



Recommended Posts

I'm not going to vote since I'm a newbie and trying out different front-ends at the moment but I'm surpised LaunchBox is not the list...It's very easy to set up, good looking, pretty much everything is automated, will get the infos, covers, etc for you.

Seems like a very strong contender to me.

Dropping a mention for Launchbox.  I started using it recently and like it so far!

I would vote if launchbox was an option.  Hyperspin looks really nice but two years ago when I tried it I got tired of the hassle after I had it partially set up.  Will probably try again sometime in the future though.

I feel exactly the same. I felt in love with hyperspin at first sight but I'm slowly getting tired of all this setting up and I'm considering Launchbox more and more.

Doesn't hurt to give launchbox a try for the most part it sets it self up.  I didn't prefer some of the recommended emulators, it's not hard to configure others though.  I think it's still $20 for lifetime premium if you fancy it.

I feel like I could teach my computer illiterate parents to set it up.

Yeah, and it's constantly improving, I can't wait to see how Launchbox will turn out in the future.

RetroFE for me. I realise there's work to be done on it still, but it's got huge potential, is F/OSS, and cross platform, while supporting a ton of artwork including wheels.

Has anyone been using Steam?  It can sorta be forced into front-end duty.

I thought about that long ago.  It just didn't seem right to me, especially with all the other great options now days.

Hyperspin, no contest. Might be a **** to set up, but once you do there is no going back!

Right now I'm using Launchbox/Big Box and love the simplicity, but I just recently (yesterday) started tinkering with HyperSpin and although my setup is still incomplete, it is the nicest visual layout I've seen on a front-end. I just wish it wasn't so damn complicated lol! PS: Does anyone know the name of the retro video game magazine program that can be added to HyperSpin? If you have any pointers please let me know, thanks in advance.

It's a tough call for me, I haven't settled on any one in particular, every one I try seems to be missing some feature I want, that another has, that's missing from the other one :)

I like Hyperspin and RetroFE because they have the system main menu's - I like seeing the system intro videos, but I wish they had Attract-Mode's snap/video screensaver.

Hyperspin wins it in the beauty contest for me... but lately I'm more excited about Launchbox.

At this point in time it be: Cabinet: Hyperspin, other system: Launchbox

Launchbox / BigBox for me !! It's pretty Easy to tweak and gives a Nice Clean look. Also I support Jason. He is doing a great job and makes great progress!

I'm certainly a Hyperspin fan despite its failings amongst many strong contenders out there. I'm certainly looking more and more at Launchbox. Am I right in saying it'll scrape all the artwork automatically from the internet? This sounds very interesting.

None that are in your list.  Launchbox gets my vote to enable not only Mame & emulators but pc games as well under one program / interface.

@ RetroNutz - Yes it scrapes automatically & you can set what you want & what you dont.
