About This File

A Retrotastic 2.04 but for any resolution screen! And with a couple of other tweaks!

I love using Retrotastic but it has a few issues for me:

  1. My resolution screen is not 1920 by 1080, it's a little bit bigger than that and so it wasn't filling the whole screen. My resolution is actually set at 1680 by 1050 in Windows but scaled to 125%. See screenshot.
  2. The transitions from platform to games list to game details were too slow for me. When I select a platform, the loading screen was taking too long and I could already see the games view by the time the loading screen showed up.
  3. There's no game notes and I like to read them in the game view screen.

Here is how I made it:

  • Removed all sizing that limits the resolution to 1080p;
  • Added Stretch="Fill" for all Image backgrounds;
  • Switched Force16X9AspectRatio to false.

Here are other tweaks that I did:

  • Added a label in the games view to display at the bottom, a little (partial) brief about the game.
  • Disabled the loading aspects so the transtions from platform to games list to game details are immediate.

I would like to give a shout-out to its author: @faeran

Thank you!
