Live background and new YouTube channel
Retro gaming in new TV sets always have the problem of not using the full screen. Personally I don’t like to stretch the image but at the same time I don’t like to have the empty spaces / black bars at the sides. Some emulators put an image to cover the black area but that has the problem that for some games it just doesn’t match, then I watched some videos that added a live background with the images of the game itself, with a bit of blurring and I thought that it was awesome.
So I spent some time working on the idea and I made it for RetroArch. RetroX uses a rather old version of RetroArch (1.2.2) and I don’t know if they have done it in new versions, but at least our version will have it. Now I will play with it a little before releasing it to the public as an option, and hopefully I will add the same to the other emulators used in RetroX.
At the same time, I announce our new RetroX exclusive YouTube channel where you can follow the development of new features and anything RetroX related. Don’t forget to subscribe to receive the updates!
