Default Re: Building Another HTPC

I don't really know anything about emulators, but if you have one that functions as a dashboard (not 100% sure what that means....just saying what I read somewhere a while ago) you can run them through XBMC. Just put them in the emulators folder.

That's all I know really. Do a search for XBMC + dashboard emulators. Something is bound to come up. Oh and I assume that's what you're looking for? A program that will have all your emulators in the same place?

I just want to be able to select "Emulators", pick a console system and then pick a game, all under XBMC. That way I don't have to exit XBMC to play games and vice versa.

I did look at the XBMC forums but couldn't find anything minus installing emulators on an actual XBOX.

Just in case anyone wants to know, the best place to get high-res movie posters and backdrops is:

http://www.themoviedb.org

Great website!
