I have a folder of Roms, one for Sega and one for Nintendo...

I'm building a cabinet similar to an arcade for Nintendo and Sega emulators...

I also have a USB adapter for the old Nintendo controllers and they work via USB, so I am putting them as controllers...

So it is working as is, but I have to open each emulator Nintendo or Sega and then open the game, then sometimes remap the joypad...

I want to have an Interface built that is much easier to launch the emulator/ arcade and then select Nintendo or Sega (or SNES and MAME) and then select the game via a list or images...

Any idea where to start either Dreamweaver or something local to a PC?
MAME, does MAME have a similar interface that will work for this?

Nothing that needs to be online, all local, I have a PC in the cabinet and a 19" monitor, everything is working as is...
I just want it to work for someone if it where their 1st time using it, does that make sense?

I need some kind of a GUI interface where you can 1st select the System Nintendo, Sega, Super Nintendo and MAME.

Then depending on what system emulator you open a list of ROMS, select that and then play...

Any idea where to start?

Thanks,

Shane
