    Hey folks, Jason Messer here, Editor-in-Chief of Cheat Code Central and full-time retro lover! I have been on a quest for years to find just the right emulation front-end for my collection. After experimenting with just about every theme and program you can think of over the last decade, I set out to create my own that suited my needs. After discovering the perfect storm of EmulationStation and TMNTturtleguy’s comic theme while browsing YouTube a while back, I knew with some redesigning and coding I could finally create the setup I’ve been looking for for so long. Below are a few screenshots from my redesign, which has been completely overhauled. As you can see, this puts more of an emphasis on the covers and art work of the games themselves, which I feel most themes lack. It was also important to me to accommodate all the different layouts you find in the varying systems. It’s been a huge source of frustration that most themes look really cool visually, but rarely pay attention to this detail and lack this basic concept covering all the possible art. If released, I’m planning to do as many layouts for consoles as I can, so everything is covered. The screenshots here cover the designs for the “basic” view (for those looking for a minimalist approach), the “detailed” view (for folks who just want a nice screenshot) and the “video” view (which has all the bells and whistles like cover art, video preview, cart scans, etc). It’s all tied together with more of an old, damaged comic book look to add to the nostalgia. The console screens have all been updated with new cover art and half-tone coloring, to give it a print feel. I have used some art from Maximus Arcade, which I still have to get approved before release. I have also included a snap of the updated retro/comic video intro I’m working on. I welcome any feedback, as this is a labor of love and is the culmination of various front-end design ideas I've been toying with for the last 10+ years. I hope to make this my definitive front-end for the future, maybe even porting it to various formats if the community likes it. SPECIAL THANKS to TMNTturtleguy for creating a great base-theme that I started with. He provided ALL his original files and made my life 100% easier! I really appreciate that, can’t thank him enough. Additional thanks to various databases (like EmuMovies) that will also be a huge part of the artwork for the games!

    Version 2.0


    Final Burn Alpha Artwork Pack for use with RocketLauncher Unzip to your RocketLauncher Media Folder Games Supported: 3,282 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.

    Version 1.0.0


    Hi all, These are my Mame Bezel Art files which include a "Lay" file (so can be dumped straight into the Mame artwork folder once you unzip the main folder. These files will be ideal for use direct into Mame and on a tv with 16:9 view. Contains 33 files (letter X - Z) of bezel arts from the internet, oh plus some of my own. I've cloned into two different glass views. I've opted for the "Real Frame Clear" and "Real Frame Glass" effect and just done left and right sides rather than all round as that would just take way too long and also I found a lot of the bezels found on the internet just take up too much of the screen and to compensate this you have to change the screen size. (the art1 files included are just the originals taken from the internet). Both mame formats 4:3 Horizontal and 3:4 Vertical have been done. Once placed in the Mame Artwork folder start a game and Tab to Video Options pick which one you prefer "Clear" or "glass" and then you have to make a slight adjustement within the "Slider" tab for both Screen Horizontal and Screen Vertical (usually around .966 for both) The games are taken from the rom set that I currently have so title names may slightly differ from the ones you have. (i'm happy to email anyone my Excel file with all the game names vs rom names, if needed) For the games that I could not find any artwork at all for, I've setup a few standard looking sets (6 Horizontal and 6 Vertical) which gives a view as if your in an actual arcade. ****Any comments or feedback would be much appreciated people***** Adam
