RoM-Jacket creates a native Windows™
(batch-script) library-layer for retro-emulation.
It is a comprehensive utility for any ROM library and is the ONLY ROM-library management tool which enables indipendent, per-game settings.
RoM-Jacket can download, install & setup HTPC frontends, emulators and joysticks.
The goal of this project is to unify the interface for emulators and systems in order to maintain the integrity of ROM titles as they exist in any active HTPC gaming-library.
Download torrents, magnets, urls and
automatically identify, extract and catalog ROMs and BIOS files
Mirror your saves and save-states into a cloud (Dropbox/GDrive/OneDrive)
Convert ROMs into portable executables
Each ROM is grouped with associated assets
inside a Jacket (folder). A batch-script launcher (.bat) and configuration files are then created for each ROM.
The result is a library in which titles are highly portable, self-contained, execuatble by Windows™ itself and and easily integrated into any HTPC gaming frontend.
Because HTPC frontends typically match separated assets by name and emulators for a ROM-set usually use a static emulator-configuration file, 2 significant problems often arise:
Changes made to an emulator's
settings for one ROM affect all other ROMs which use it.
The source of assets and ROMs are arranged and named uniquely from ROM to content to emulator to frontend.
RoM-Jacket solves these problems: Preferences and assets remain with the jacket so that each title can appear with the same content in any frontend..
