Has anyone set up their Arcade cabinets to run several emulators?
eg. N64, MAME, Atari, SNES, etc.

I'm looking to find out if anyone has heard of a front end that will let you select which emu you want to launch into? and then present you with the games for emu.

Thanks...

I used 3d arcade in my mame machine

It's not to bad to set up and the support staff is fantastic!

Ok, sweet. Thanks.
Will give it a go and let you know how I find it.
I've nearly got all my components for my mame (pc) box.


Anyone have a preference for jukebox software? :confused:
I am making my mame cabinet a bit of a all-in-one set up.
Anyone got any comments or recommendations on jukebox software?
(this maybe abit out of left field for this forum...)


Thanks
Hurikane.

I downloaded 3darcade and had a quick go at it.
Setup seems a bit complicated :(
Haven't ready any doco though...that's my next plan of attack.
It looks awesome though, wondering through a virtual 3d arcade does seem a pretty good idea!!!!:D
(adds good affect!)

I really dont like the 3d arcade part. I use the list manager style. It's a lot like mame, but with 3d models of the cabs'. 3d arcade also has the option of a galaga style frontend. Also it has pinball and jukebox options.
