What is MultiFE?

MultiFE is a simple, but effective fullscreen virtual Jukebox player for both your albums and singles collection(s) for your game room. MultiFE can also ACT like a frontend to launch games for emulators and PC games (using bat and shortcuts) as well. It can been used with a touch screen or with arcade controls.

Why is this frontend called MultiFE?

Unlike Arcade Music Box and many other software applications, MultiFE uses a library system which can carry its own Orientation format for music and even for games. This means MultiFE can use multiple type of collections for both games and music.

Due MultiFE support MultiPle Libraries for games and orientations for music, this application is called MULTIply FrontEnd.

I have heard a similar title before MultiFE?

MultiFe is renamed from MultiJuke, which was just focused on music, but now want to turn into a game lancher and music player. Thanks goes to Cakemeister from BOYAC for the nice name.
