You have a point and I agree with what you have to say. The writer of NRA:n should be contributing a portion of the revenue to the emulation community. I don't know him personally but I will compel him to do the right thing.
I am guessing that the cores are how they are so as to make the installation process easier? The cores are not downloaded at run time. They have to be found and installed as do the roms and the art. You are correct that the cores use to be installed at run time as needed. Likely the steam store didn't like that.
I assume that NRA:n is an offshoot of Retroarcade or Retroarch that is on android or Kodi devices? The installation process is similar along with the cores being found elsewhere.
Really any program like this amounts to a front-end to the game classics. Midway Arcade Classics, Nintendo's greatest hits, even Pinball arcade to a lesser extent. In those cases the producer owns the rights. These titles I have purchased as well both for enjoyment on my console and also to help keep the interest in classics alive.
I do hope that some will take a look at what has been accomplished here and build on it. It is an excellent first attempt and really shows what is possible in furthering the emulation experience.
Building on this would be things like putting the sketchup models of cabinets to work, an arcade builder where we could recreate the arcade itself, games like Aztarac would be possible. Maybe Space Invaders can actually be 3D. Revenge from Mars might now be possible. Imagine stepping inside an Enviromental discs of Tron. SubRoc 3D could actually be in 3D. So many possibilities.
