RetroXMB Creator 1.3.5: More Image And Core Options For Shortcuts - Aldo Vargas has updated his RetroXMB shortcut creator to 1.3.5. It handles DDS image conversion, and offers more customizable options for cores and the app itself!
RetroXMB Creator hit our servers not too long ago, and since its release, Aldo Vargas has worked steadily to improve how his GUI operates. There are a bevy of changes in the most recent builds, but most of them involve improvement of image handling and other customization features. The biggest recent update revises the organization of temporary folders. Additionally, there's a new "core options" menu that allows you to adopt different color palettes for specific games. See more complete details below!
I have added a progress bar when roms are dropped to create multiple packages in batch. Also the selected core is now displayed in preview mode.
I have included these wallpapers in a new folder "Skins" You can select one of them pressing F3 (Blue Icon), then going to the "Skins" tab. The selected skin will be used on the packages created with the selected core.
ICON0.PNG fix in preview mode
Temporary working folders are now stored in .Work folder. Packages are now stored in .Packages folder.
I just fixed a regression introduced in 1.3. It should be fixed in version 1.3.1
Added a new Core Options window (press F2 to access it)
Changed the aspect_ratio_index from "22" to "0" when Aspect Ratio is 4:3
Added support for"SCE-PS3 Rodin LATIN" font for PARAM.HIP
Added an experimental conversion method using the parameters: -rel_scale 0.6, 0.6 -24 dxt1c
If the images are already in DDS format, the program will use them, instead of try to do the conversion.(it's not the best approach, but at least the images will have the proper size if you provide them already converted)
Added a list of variables from the text file viewable NVDXT_parameters.
Added a new function to set the parameters NVDXT pressing the F2 key from the window RetroXMB Manual Menu.
Added display of the size of the image that will be shown at the top of the application next to the title.
Rom location added to PARAM.HIP automatically. (PARAM.HIP txt contents is viewable from XMB by highlighting the rom and pressing TRIANGLE to access side-bar menu and select "Update Histroy"
