RoM-Jacket is an open-source Windows ROM and emulator utility suite. It packages ROMs as batch executables bundled with assets and per-game configuration files for ease of use across several different supported frontends, in addition to streamlining emulator installation and setup.



RoM-Jacket can automatically setup HTPC frontends, emulators and joysticks.

The the aim of RoM-Jacket is to unify the interface for emulators and frontends to maintain consistency in a HTPC gaming library. Each ROM is grouped with associated assets inside a folder called a Jacket. A batch script launcher and configuration files are then created for each ROM. The result is a library in which titles are highly portable, self-contained, executable directly from Windows and and easily integrated into any frontend setup.
