EmuCon – a GUI for many emulators systems: consoles, handhelds and computers. EmuCon is a frontend for console, computer and handheld emulators. It is compatible with all versions of Windows (Windows XP and newer). Similar to Emu Loader, this project started as a hobby and an easy way for me to play SuperNES games with my computer.

– Mount/unmount disc images on a virtual drive (Daemon Tools, SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive, Alcohol 120%, etc). Required by some emulators. Select a virtual drive app in emulators setup screen and enable it in games popup menu
– Games folders separate by media type and with recursive scanning. You must place your games of different media in different folders
– Load games with multiple floppy disks (Amiga, Commodore 64/128/VIC-20, Atari 800/XL, Apple II/IIGS). Some usage rules must be followed. See .rtf documents in emucon_dir\docs\special_rules\ folder. This feature is hard-coded in EmuCon’s source and cannot be customized
