    We use XBrowser, it works great!
    The latest version loads from a local source (usb) and downloads metadata for you.

    XBrowse (sorry, no 'r') lets you emulate NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advanced, NDS, SG-1000, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Sega Game Gear, Sony PlayStation, TurboGrafx16, PC Engine CD-Rom, PC-FX, WonderSwan, Neo-Geo, Neo-Geo Pocket Color, and Arcade.
    You can find it in the store. It does cost money to remove the ads, but it is worth it. No dev account needed.
    Once you are in the browser, you pull both triggers to go into the local loader. Choose your emulator and then choose your rom locally (we use USB flash drive). It automatically loads metadata and plays the game with local save slots.
    Here is a video showing it in action:

    Holy shit that is awesome, how is this even legal though? I'm surprised it hasn't been pulled.

    UPDATE while the app is cool it really doesn't have the best performance even gameboy games struggle. Is the dev still updating the performance or no? I still don't even understand how this is legal.

    Yeah, nothing to see here. Could not load any NEO-GEO roms. PlayStation EMU crashed on a lot of games, very slow. Artwork did not download.

    What games are you playing?
    We have tried just about every emulator it offers and have had no problem with compatibility, slowdowns, or downloading the metadata/artwork.

    Every single game I tried had frame drops.

    Pokemon Gold is the simplest game I tried and it has drops. Also metadata does not download.

    My bet is they’re using absestos source code but put in different code for the interface.

    Yeah there are quite a few similarities when it comes to supported emulators or how the pause ui looks.

    I may see if I can fix the bios files if you are using Dev mode you can swap them but first you must figure out which bios is which

    i am getting this error "Failure reason: Windows cannot install package 56766BONGASoftware.XBrowse_1.1.81.0_x64__pvkgc8ct3x252 because this package depends on a framework that could not be found. Provide the framework "Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.2.1"

    Edit: I fixed it installing the updated dependencies, but even so the menu doesn't show up :(

    Edit 2: Sorry for my bad english, i am still learning
