We have been playing with various front ends and a regular in the forums suggested checking out NeXtboX – so we did, but we didnt go playing test and presenting a perfect polished video to you , well its the festive season, so we just installed it and fired it up LIVE on our FaceBook page.
A lovely little Kodi conversion for the gamers with rom downloader and more… Heres a first look – never been used before – so bear with !! #HAVINGFUN

All in all, as you can see we had a little Kodi crash, and a bit of lag with the games (Which we totally blame the streamer PC for by the way) but its not a bad front end with all being said, a bit of configuring the controller in RetroArch (the key emulator in this) , and we seem to be away with the fairies, the only real complaint was the download time for the paticular rom and then when clicking launch it wanting to download again (Something you can fix in settings, we have since found out!) , but then you can always drag and drop your existing roms in the the system to avoid download, but its there if you want it , and looking at the Alex Kid play it took seconds to download the rom and be playing it!
You can find more information out on The Official Archive page here but we will warn you there is not much documentation out there for this, simply install the download to your C: drive to work, it does require a layout of c:\nextbox\nextbox – this will make sense when you download it 🙂
This paticular build is a PC build but you can always port the add-ons to other devices, such as Pi, Android, and so on!
