  1. The Android port of Retroarch is quite good, and includes several systems (computer, arcade, console, etc.)
  2. Shouldn't be too difficult. Also, since you're a lifetime member, you can download any necessary files from the emumovies server directly through LaunchBox while you're importing your roms. Coming from someone who switched from hyperspin to launchbox about 3 years ago, I can tell you that it's relatively easy and smooth
  3. I've tried OpenEmu and very much like its simplicity and convenience. For Windows, I would highly recommend LaunchBox :) https://www.launchbox-app.com/ You do have to download and configure the emulators on your own, but almost everything else is really easy to set up. You can even drag and drop roms, programs, videos, etc. since it has the ability to launch any program associated with those files
  4. Not all that new, actually. All three of the frontends I mentioned have been in development for the past few years. However, LaunchBox has recently (in the past year or so) risen to the top of the frontends (among windows users), based on most websites polls, youtube activity, etc. Of course it's a matter of preference, but if you're using the premium version of LaunchBox which includes BigBox, you'll have yourself the ultimate frontend, which is highly customizable, yet easy to install and get running on your computer. Having said that, I also like the other frontends available including retrofe and attractmode, as they're easier for me to 'tweak' the themes/layouts :)
  5. Did you accidentally or intentionally forget a few of the best frontends out there? The reason I ask this is because you spoke rather highly/positively about 3 other frontends, but did not make any mention of emulationstation, attractmode, and launchbox. In my opinion, these are way smoother and easier to set up than the ones you mentioned in your post. With the exception of launchbox, they can be used on multiple OS (Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.) and launchbox is about as easy as it comes to install and set up properly (with windows). Additionally, they can all be used in conjunction with rocketlauncher :)
  6. I've also used HyperSpin and quickly gave it up after moving over to Big Box. I also prefer retrofe and attractmode, as they are much more flexible than HyperSpin. At the same time, BigBox is incredibly easy to get started with and gets better (literally) with each day :)
  7. You're probably right about the only the real good source for getting Rocket Launcher set up properly is with Simply Austin's youtube videos. Unfortunately their forums have been a bit unresponsive as of lately, although I'm sure you can find someone there who's willing to help out if you have any specific issues to inquire about. Most of what I learned with Rocket Launcher was by trial and error. However, that can (literally) take hours and hours of time trying to get things set up properly. Also, I would suggest some of the other forums including here, Hyperspin, and a few other places around the internet. In the end, it's very much worth it as tjwoosta pointed out many of the advantages of using rocket launcher in combination with a frontend-program like launchbox, hyperspin or any other one for that matter :)
  8. It all comes down to personal preference. In my opinion, mGalaxy is boring and leaves me with that "mehhh" feeling. However, it's relatively simple and has a nice clean interface. So, those who prefer a more simple touch with not too many bells and whistles, then mGalaxy is probably the better choice. For me, hyperspin is a bit too much bells and whistles and also feels outdated with the lack of widescreen support. I definitely like the 'wheels' feature, but trying to find wheel/logo images for the not so popular/obscure systems gets old really fast
  9. Thank you for the ftp fix! Now it seems to be downloading for me, although not at a very rapid pace, it's moving along :)
  10. Hyperspin is still 'active' but the updates to it have been almost nonexistent in the past 3-4 years. Earlier this year, a new programmer has supposedly taken over the project and had promised (on the hyperspin forums) that it's currently in development and moving forward, but since then there hasn't been any information or recent updates. My advice, if you're running an arcade cab, hyperspin is a fine choice and pretty much has everything you need, but probably won't be making much progress in the future, although I certainly I hope I'm wrong about that :) Also, attractmode is an excellent frontend for arcade cabs and can run on various operating systems including linux and mac. If you're an average pc user or want something for your living room tv, then I would highly recommend another frontend like retrofe or launchbox. They're very much making progress and continue to amaze with all of their recent updates, and the programmers are very active on the forums with news, information, and providing help to the folks out there
  11. After several attempts I haven't been able to log in to the ftp. How about hosting the retrofe files on mega or another similar website?
  12. Great work! But you really need to get something on your main page/website. I've seen some posts here and there, including Simply Austin's youtube page, where a few people seem to be confused while looking around on the retrofe website and the latest download (available) is from over a year ago. Also, I can guess that a lot of people aren't going to jump on board with a new frontend if they have to set up an ftp account, have to register on the retrofe boards to find the latest files, layouts, etc. However, it's fantastic to see that you're spreading the word out there :)
  13. Yep, as someone who frequently bothers their developers with bugs/errors and other miscellaneous requests, I can honestly claim that retrofe is certainly one of the best! The most recent updates now make it a much smoother and flexible frontend, and the latest layouts (aeon nox, xmb, etc.) are very nice with a professional touch :)
