Nostlan (formally Bottlenose) is a high quality front-end launcher for gaming emulators which supports Windows, Linux and MacOs. It's currently capable of launching more mainstream emulators with nice features and its future looks quite bright!

  • designed for UHD displays and projectors
  • checks multiple database sites for the highest quality box art
  • nostalgic UI themes for each supported console
  • fancy scroll direction alternation effect on rows in cover view mode
  • most controllers connect to Bottlenose automatically, no setup required including Xbox One, PS4 Dualshock, and Switch Pro controllers
  • gamecube controller adapter supported with gca-js
  • advanced customization: edit launch commands and change game art

  • for the next version of Nostlan v1.20.x I will stop Nostlan from forcing updates on users and maintain it as a LTS stable version. Updates will be optional until a version 2.0.0 is released.
