Emu/exe front end

Recommended Posts


bought an old arcade coinop and put a pc with emulators on it. Now i'm searching nice frontend to run games and normal exe.

Choose is hard. Too many choices available, and too many graphic effects for my taste.

So i choose to write my minimalistic UI to run things on pc.

After see this image:


Think to configurable 3x3 grid, where user can select using 8 way directions

what you think about this idea? We need another frontend ?

Thank you for any suggestion,

hello again,

code something  like this:



find usefull GUICtrlSetOnHover_UDF.au3.

Sources and files here:


it's ugly, not fullscreen, not sexy, and run anything and maybe broke run games rule , but it's a start.

Anyone can help me to add some hints to make this a little better ?

( think to fullscreen, remove upper bar, cover windows gui whith skin )


Working on joystck support also, but first want to do nice GUI.

thank you,
