Hey all, I've just bought a CD full of old SNES games and, although it comes
with its own frontend, it's not the best ever. I was wondering if there were
frontends for the old SNES that worked a bit like MAME? What I mean is, do
they perhaps display screenshots (the thing I'd really like). I had a look
around but couldn't really find anything like the MAME frontends.

Thanks for any help

Besides ZNES I believe that MESS does also emulate NES games. MESS is the
brother of MAME.

But ZNES might do better quality.

ZSNES is a good choice. For a front end that handles both, you can't
do much better than Mamewah

One more thing - If you have kids and they're going to play, check out
those roms very carefully. Some of them may be hacks featuring porn.
You can usually tell by the title - often "something slideshow" or
similar.

Mother Farquhar's last words before the Sword of Azrial plunged through

MAME doesn't have a graphical interface.

He didnt say it did. He said he would like a snes emu like MAME, where
you attach a front end to it, and have it operate like a back-end. Are
you assuming he is talking about MAME32? Now now 'spawn... this is not
mame.net ;-)

If you do like I did and grab whole folders off of the 'net, you can end
up d/ling the offending ROMs over and over again. Instead of deleting
the offending files, create an empty file in notepad, then save it as
"adultmanga1.zip" (or whatever) in your ROMs folder. (Remember to
include the double-quotes around the file name, otherwise Windows will
add '.txt' on the end.) This will create a file that will take up no
space, but /will/ prevent the file from showing back up. To keep it
from showing up at all, simply check the 'Hidden' box in 'file/properties'.

This is not 100% true while the solution requires almost as much work
it is doable without the quotes. Just change the "save as type" to all
files and it will not add the TXT extension.

True. I had forgotten that. I use DN for editing most of my text files
anyway. For something as simple as creating an empty file, I just use
'echo off > whatever.xxx' (XP) or 'REM > whatever.xxx' (DOS/9x)
