    My apologies if this has been suggested before or has already been addressed.

    Is there any possibility to being able to switch emulators prior to a ROM being loaded through the Emulation Station GUI? I know I can do this immediately after loading a rom, but it requires the use of a keyboard which kind of takes away from the 10 foot experience.

    Thanks for all the hard work, this project is truly awe-inspiring!

    The menu where you choose the emulator only needs to be run once, so you can set a default emulator and then it will remember the choice.
    Also, it has an option to select an emulator on a per rom basis, so you can have a different emulator per game as well.

    Yes, you’d have to select this with a keyboard, but you’d only have to set it once.
