Has anyone found a way yet of making HALauncher not lag when chosing a background image?  No matter what I do it becomes really slow and unresponsive if I chose a background other that anything blank.

I've tried any size of background, whether it be something really low resolution or higher.  I notice someone else in the thread had issue with the same thing.  Not sure what it can be

This has prime shipping. So it will actually arrive sooner.
Although it isn't black. But still. Prime.

Hey Cody,

Great tutorial! Thank you!

I have one question, though: I set up some SNES shortcuts and they work great. But since I selected "Always" when I was asked what program to open with, now every single game defaults to open with SNES emulator. I want to play some Final Burn games and set up shortcuts for that, but everything tries to open with SNES.

When I go in to edit the Arcade Shortcut, there's a list of programs there but FBA does not show up in that list. I am totally confused and don't know how to get my arcade ROMS to open with FBA.

Could you lend some advice?

Thank you!

Ok, an update: now I realize that it won't show me any apps that are marked as "handheld" in this list. What.

So confused....why does it mark certain apps this way?

Here are my favorites:

SquareHome.Tablet Launcher


I've customized both with icons based on "Bichromatic Pads" wallpapers in rectroarch.
You can get those here.

Squaredhome is great, took me ages to set up, those icons are gorgeous I just had to have them, here is my set up.





Would it be possible for you to share this config? I'm really terrible at customizing my launcher.

Hi, DirtyPillow  Actually i've the same problem to launch games directly with aFBA and Retoarch it doesn't work

the command line on the shortcut is not good

the broglia's emu launch directly the rom file
in case of retroarch you must launch the emu + the core

If someone good on android can explain us how to launch with a shortcut " rom with emu+core" ?

Tanks to him

Thanks Cody. I notice that you have CPS3 games like Street Fighter III, what are you using to launch those?

Thanks!!

HALauncher has been updated and fixed. Tried it and it's working great. :)

Also: Does anyone know what I should enter as the component (In the HALauncher shortcut) for fba4doid 1.74?

ie. com.????.fba4droid?

Hi floxtr, yeah it is possible to share the games logo that i've made  :P ( Many Works )

Here is the link

Cody huge thanks for supplying these icons - I just got my GPD XD and I've been trying to set up HAL the same as yours.  Can you share, how do you make shortcuts to specific games?  I'm trying to make shortcuts to Dreamcast CDI images and even though I have CDI associated with Reicast it just won't work.  Thanks again!

are you saying that halauncher won't be ideal if all you use is retroarch, as there's no way to automatically launch different emulator cores + game straight from the home screen shortcut?

Hi Chimera,  to launch ? dreamcast game you must declare the type mime of file "application/cdi"  on the shortcut creation

Can't seem to get this working either with GDI or CDI files - it looks like Reicast opens but doesn't do anything.  Here's a screenshot of my shortcut setup
