Pieter Hulshoff:
RetroFE, like many front-ends, uses quite a bit of art to make the front-end look good. Both the HyperSpin and EmuMovies communities provide large amounts of artwork that's also usable in RetroFE. On the EmuMovies FTP site, you can even find a complete RetroFE setup including art for several systems (no roms of course), and an update including the required emulators for those systems. If you have an account there, feel free to take a look at the /Official/Retro FE Media Pack directory.

For MAME, I'm working together with the HyperSpin community to make a complete art set. You can find the WIP at!4VxAUb5Y!TlEEdgjiVHvEG1PSAPsqsg
You can find the bezels in emulators/MAME/artwork.

Since MEGA uses download limitations, for the best experience you should create your own (free) account, sync the data to your own account, and then use the MEGA sync tool to download the data to your computer.

Pieter Hulshoff:
I've uploaded a new modular RetroFE system to the EmuMovies FTP site, at /Official/Retro FE Media Pack
While it contains a README.txt as well, a bit of explanation:
- The RetroFE file contains the base RetroFE installation, with the latest executable. It's not very different from what you can find in the download section here, except that it does not have the Sega Genesis and Arcade collection.
- The MAME 0.x file contains the MAME emulator installation. All the collections currently in the set use MAME as their emulator, and the launchers all point to this installation.
- The rest of the zip files contain collections, as complete as I have them, with launchers for Linux and Windows. Just unzip them in the RetroFE directory.
- The emulators directory contains the MAME artwork (bezels) (/Official/Retro FE Media Pack/emulators/MAME/artwork), which can you simply drag and drop as a whole into your RetroFE directory. The MAME installation mentioned above will automatically use them.

Basically, all you need to do is take the base (or use your own), unzip the MAME installation if you want, unzip the collections you want, add them to your Main collection's menu.txt file, add your roms, and enjoy. :) The sets are mostly based on HyperSpin 1.0 XML files, so finding the corresponding roms should be easy. :)

What collections on linux do you have launchers setup for?

Thanks for your hard work!

Pieter Hulshoff:
I'll upload my launchers here tomorrow.

I also need to add the CPS I-III, Cave and SNK Neo-Geo MVS sub collections to EmuMovies.
