Modules are required for each emulator you want to use.

Please read carefully before using.

About: For new users. Basically RocketLauncher is a separate game launcher for emulators and programs. Usually your Front End can launch games on its own, but is very limited or not nearly as comprehensive as RocketLauncher. By enabling RocketLauncher, you open up a whole new world of scripted game launching. Scripted game launching is much better because scripts can control exactly what happens during the launching of a program or game. It also controls the exiting. This is especially important for arcade cab users because we want the most professional looking system possible. Launching a game cleanly and exiting cleanly is what RocketLauncher is all about. Non-advanced users do not have to know how all this works, you should just enable it and configure the path settings for your specific needs. As you become more inclined with RocketLauncherUI, you can dive into more customization options.

The purpose of RocketLauncher is:

  1. To make it easier for new users to launch emulators and games/applications. You never compile any of RocketLauncher's modules. This is important to remember. They are not meant to be run as stand-alone scripts.
  2. Only require setting up rom paths and emulators across multiple Front Ends once. You are free to try many front ends or keep multiple installed and switch between them, but launch everything the same setup! Because RocketLauncher handles launching, you do not need to have, whatever front end you use, handle this. This also frees the Front End devs to concentrate on their product, rather than worrying about launching emulators which is a very tedious process considering emulators are constantly updated and often requires changes to launch them.
  3. Add many features to emulators that the original devs did not give access to. For example, per-game configurations, bezels, global pause, media access to a game's assets from within the game itself. The list goes on and on.
  4. A community based on making highly customized solutions to handling emulators.
  5. RocketLauncher is modular. This means that each system has a different mini script that users can download on a per emulator basis. A new user can simply download the module for the emu and that's it. New modules will be found by using RocketLauncherUI's update feature.
  6. RocketLauncher has a GUI counterpart called RocketLauncherUI. This makes editing RocketLauncher settings super easy and fast.
  7. RocketLauncher uses Plugins to know how to read database and media data from your Front End.
  8. RocketLauncher is a command line program that Front Ends call to launch emulators for cleaner launching and exiting. RocketLauncherUI can be used as a Front End on its own to test and launch your games and applications from.
