After recently discovering how front-ends can streamline and connect the different emulators together into one program; I started trying to set one up to use on my computer. But every step of the way has been a road block after road block. Some front-ends I started setting up become useless once I read further to find out it hasn't been updated in years. Other front-ends have hidden paywalls which make front-ends useless when trying to fully customize. Of the open-source front-ends, the setup instructions are laughably bad and no guides exist on how to properly set it up. When I finally found an already existing setup, it ends up behind a pay wall. To compound this further. I have read guides stating that rocket launcher should be used for loading games yet many many of the front-ends refuse to even acknowledge it's existence. Try typing in RetroFE and Rocketlauncher setup. You will get 2 forums at most and they are just questions about errors. And the Rocketlauncher wiki explains nothing on how to sync the two together. I have had to resort to looking through old guides to try and setup retroFE with rocketlauncher but in the end nothing worked. And to add further frustration, I recently found out that RetroFE was no longer being updated on the website so it became a waste of time. At this rate, I will either have to pay 100USD just to get something setup or forget about the existence of front-ends. Why is the bar set so high? what happened to an easy entry point for new users? It is like being thrown into the deep end when trying to set up a front end and any form of help or aid is behind a paywall.
