    Is there a frontend for no$gba that unzip files and launch this application? Or a frontend that allows choosing my preferred emulator?

    you can associate your o/s with file types. i click my roms and they launch in the emu of choice. you could also write a script/batch file to automate it for you.

    it seems pretty pointless to me to write an app that stores your file type and the path to your emulator which then launches the file into that emu on a button press, when you can just associate the file type in your o/s. people who code don't reinvent the wheel, its a waste of time.

    i've been using computers since 1982. the most important lesson i've learned is that compressed data goes bad before uncompressed data. so in response i wouldn't know because i don't compress any of my roms.

    but i do see your point.
