Default Emulator - with no command line

Hi,

A lot of emulators seem to be ones where you have to type in a command line to start the game.

I have seen some proper arcades machine at the shops where there is about 50 games on the system and there was a screen cap of each game. You could select the game by moving a dotted line box around the screen cap. No command prompts.

Is there any emulators I can download that has this sort of user function? Happy to consider a commercial product.

Thanks for reading, any help is much appreciated

Cheers!
James

I don't know what you're talking about. 90% of emulators that I know have GUIs.

Sounds like he's looking for frontends.

Yeah, frontends rule. I've been using them since the DOS emulation days (circa 1997).

Allow you to do things like this (GameEx running on my HTPC) or this! (Quickplay on my desktop/laptop)
