[RELEASE] 2.7.36 Themes4Noobs

A new update has been released! This brings:

  • New Android TV users will get Themes by default
  • Video snaps for Themes
  • Old MAME 2003 has been brought back. No cheats, but it works
  • New alternative - EmuMovies friendly - artwork locations (see retrox.tv/artwork)
  • No more need to rescan for missing MAME/FBA files. Also you can ignore the warning if you have all the files merged.
  • Storage permissions now requested on startup
  • Removed obsolete Facebook and Google login
  • Source preferences (online, local) are now saved
    Faster startup

As always the update is automatic, although some users have reported having problems after the latest Nvidia Shield update, receiving a "parsing error" while installing APK files. If that is your case, try uninstalling all RetroX related packages, not only the app, you will find the emulators under System Apps in the Shield. If the problem persists, a factory reset will certainly fix it.

Nice!

Do you have to do something for the video snaps to show? I mean, do you have to get all of your own snaps and put them in a folder or do they just get pushed down?

Citing: "They are only available in the Themes user interface, they are never downloaded automatically by RetroX and they must be added through local storage"

Also I've added this page to help people with problems after the latest Nvidia Shield update

In the Shield go to Apps, it will list a recent list of apps, then scroll down and you will find More Apps, open it and scroll down again, you will find System Apps. Then look for all apps with names starting with "RetroX", except or "Reicast" that you will recognize by the RetroX logo.
