    Been using MAME the arcade emulator for a while now but i was wondering which is the better version for the frontend.

    I am currently using PMame and it does the job but are there any other frontends that beats it in features and the like.

    Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

    I don't know exactly what you want out of the frontend feature wise but here's a few that I've got saved to my bookmarks.

    Mamewah is a very popular frontend that is customisable so that you can launch different emulators including MAME and customise the way it looks

    GameEx is a very slick looking frontend which is designed with Media Center in mind. The only downside is that there is a nag screen unless you pay for the registered version. Well worth checking out though:

    AtomicFE. I haven't checked this one out myself but it's a multi-emulator frontend:

    3D Arcade is the maddest frontend that I know of. You select the game that you want by moving around a virtual arcade: also has a nice list of frontends some of which I have mentioned and others that I personally haven't checked out yet.

    edited to add:
    Having a look around MaLa looks interesting:
    and I'll just point you in the general direction of this forum as their info is always useful and an interesting read.
