Is there any front end that lets you browse by game series or genre ignoring the platform it is made for and not just by emulator and a-z. I'd like to see all games in lets say mario universe under one menu. All fighter games under one etc. It would be nice to have favourites for game series too so that there is no fillers inbetween

Attractmode can do this.

My new favorite front end is Launchbox with emu movies subscription. Only downside is that it doesn't seem to have an attract mode like GamEx does. Hopefully I'll get around to finishing my arcade cabinet this summer.

Launchbox and specifically BigBox needs to be added to the list of frontends.

Let me know if another FE needs added. 
I'm not as active on here as I was nine years ago when I started this thread.  It's helpful if someone would PM me when I need to add a new option.   :cheers:

First off, Hoopz is right.

Hi all, I'd like my frontend project (F.E.E.L.) to be added to this list.
 
It's a long lasting project (I gave it birth in the far 2011!), and IMHO (but also in my users' opinion) is quite valuable and rich in features, and better than a lot of commercial projects.

Talking technicals, it's very light, meant for Win PCs (also very old ones) and mainly oriented to arcade cabs and/or bartops.
It's compatible with horizontal and vertical 15khz Crt screens, and LED button dashboards.
Suitable to run and manage *any* number of roms and emulators with the highest level of personalization on commands, skins etc.

More info on the relevant homesite:
http://feelfrontend.altervista.org

Important news: I recently released the whole core code under LGPL open source license and published it on GitHub :
https://github.com/dr-prodigy/feel-frontend

Feel (hehe) free to contact me thru pm, website comments, fb, etc.. I'll try to help out with any question about it.

Any votes/suggestions/contributions are welcome, thank you very much.

Cheers!

FEEL is on there.  4th from the bottom.  It was added on July 17, 2015.

Oh sorry I've forgotten! Just got at first page and - believe it or not - I couldn't find it in list (I'm on smartphone, not really comfy in reading the web version and see the poll) :-S

Okay, anyway, I hope the additional info I just added (especially about its recent opensource release) will be useful all the same!

Thanks and sorry again :)

I dont know how I have missed this topic all these years. LoL

For me, I have been using EmuLoader for years and pretty much what I have stuck with and I really like it. I might give a few other a shot when I get around to building another cab. Hopefully soon. :)

I've built two different machines so far.

For my pinball/MAME emulator, I run PinballX. It was my first project and is fairly easy to configure to work with multiple platforms.

I also built a bar top MAME system that didn't suit Pinball X. After trying a few different front ends, I ended up dropping the money on Big Box.  Setting it up took very little work and I like the amount of configuration left up to the admin.
The more things stay, the more they change the sane.
