Im a passionate java programmer and retro console fan. Im working on an own retro system frontend for raspberry pi (early stage) based on javaFX and I would like to ask what people think about this project.
My goals are:
* retroarch only emulators (keep it simple)
* pure console feeling (no console logs on starting, switching emulators)
* raspberry pi configuration out of the box (WLAN, Screen-settings, etc…)
* Unique bluetooth controller support
* themeable gui
* automatic scraping/resizing covers form gamesdb
As I sad, the project is on eary stage but it is already running on raspberry and it really looks good so far. I would love to hear what you people think and I’m waiting for feedback.karlossParticipant06/15/2015 at 13:37Post count: 177
Nice idea, love the theme, what advantage do you have over what we already have? could you not port that theme to es? :)retrofxParticipant06/15/2015 at 14:51Post count: 4
I think RetroFX will be good for people who like an out of the box system. I hope the main advantages will be:
* complete hidden raspberry stuff
* automated configuration (screensize, controllers, wlan, etc…)
* baked in website to configure roms
* beautiful UI with JavaFX
* less emulators but better integrated
It is more fun and easier for me to write my own frontend instead of configuring ESretrofxParticipant06/17/2015 at 14:21Post count: 4
I’ve finished my concept art:
* RetroFX starts and shows SNES Roms with cover
* Liberto cores integrated and can be start from RetroFX (thank you retropie)
* Reimplement JavaFX GUI (Concept Art)
* Automatic scraping (covers)
* Menu Dialog:
– WLAN Konfiguration Dialog
– Controller Setup Dialog
* On Screen Keyboard for Menu-Entries (like WLAN, evtl. rom search)
* Reimplement JavaFX GUI (Concept Art)
* What about a rom search Dialog? Platform wide?
You guys are not excited at the moment but you will.karlossParticipant06/17/2015 at 17:10Post count: 177
Sounds very good, Im not not sure creating something to live “alongside” emulationstation isn’t going to pick up for awhile as everyone is used to this and it works…
I will try your builds when they are available, as i can put on a second pi..
I wonder if covers is a design that can be implemented into emulation station…hmmmmmatthewjosephcordovaParticipant06/18/2015 at 02:36Post count: 22
Could you make hot key equal multiple button presses? Like select, start, and trigger?fireslayer26Participant07/13/2015 at 02:08Post count: 26
Look pretty cool! Any updates? Any videos of it working?

Looking very cool! I am looking foward to test this if you plan to release this.alucardParticipant07/27/2015 at 12:30Post count: 25
This looks really nice, great work. :)thejboneParticipant08/13/2015 at 21:47Post count: 4
Omg, having a console-less boot screen would be amazing. When I show my retropie off to others it is a turn off to people when they see the console on boot up.
Btw, I love the layout of the emulators. I can’t wait til this is a full thing. :DtardisParticipant09/09/2015 at 04:06Post count: 14
i love the way this looks so far, Great jobherbfargusMember09/09/2015 at 07:02Post count: 1858
One thing I would be interested to see with your build is how it handles multiple systems. Emulationstation has limitations when it comes to too many ROMs/emulators. Does your build provide more system options without the limitations of emulationstation?netmareParticipant01/21/2016 at 17:52Post count: 1
I would use this is a hot second!! Updates?!

Loving the look of this! Reminds me of OpenEmu, which is my current favorite due to its simple elegance.
Would be great if you could add a couple of “smart collections”, for example: showing all games that are 2-player, favorite games and kids games. Also it can be nice being able to see games for all emulators, sorting them by alphabet or year.
