Hi to all!
Not far ago i bought android handheld - GPD XD.
And i've made some decorations to make it nice portable emu machine.
GPD XD is not super powered device, so i can't use heavy shaders or portable version of Hyperspin, so I decided to make an easy assembly that will work on any average device.
Hope you'll enjoy it!
What i been using:
1. Arc Browser frontend with my custom theme (runs as default android launcher)
2. Retroarch with overlays and crt-pi shaders slightly edited by me. HOW TO USE CUSTOM THEME IN ARC BROWSER
Unzip 2 folders in any place on you GPD XD
Place the files genre_all.png
from the subfolder with the platform name in the "genre_all" folder
at the place where the Roms of the corresponding platform are located on your GPD XD
In Arc Browser go to Global UI settings
and select this unzipped directory "Arc_Theme"
as a Theme Directory
In Arc Browser "Main screen UI settings"
select "Classic - Show games on main screen"
Then open "Classic layout" settings
and edit them this way:
Grid View icon mode = Visible without any title
All Games icon mode = Visible without any title
Hide system name = on
Hide fast lane = on
Show collections row = on
To use Collections
1) Add any game to [New collection]
2) Name the collection as well as the files in unzipped Arc_Theme
folder are called except for the prefix "collection_" For example:
To make NES beat'em'up collection image visible you need to call new collection "b_nes"
Where: "b" = "beat'em'up"
"f" = "fighting"
"r" = "run'n'gun"
"s" = "shoot'em'up"Or you can rename collection_*.png files as you want your collections been named
