!!!Background Images for Drastic!!!

Postby Kyousuke753 » Sat Apr 30, 2016 11:21 pm

You can now add background images onto Drastic and it's very cool customization feature.

Download the background image you want, place it in Drastic>background folder.

Just put the image you want in the background folder found in the main Drastic folder. Then set it in Edit Screens and Virtual Pad.

I'm using an external controller

Here is an example I used

So I noticed you now have the ability to add background images to screen layouts as the title thread says, I know in the Main Drastic folder there is a new folder called Background but how does it work?

Is there a length x width restriction on the background image? like for example, according to my phone's resolution its 480x854 so will the image I download from Google Images automatically be adjusted to fit the whole screen?

Will it maintain the correct aspect ratio of the image downloaded from Google Image? I really want to make full use of this awesome customization feature.

This is a cool feature as I'd love to add Mario, Dragonball Z, Digimon, Pokemon and Anime background images to it. But can you set it at an interval so the image changes every 5 minutes like my phone does for my home screen wallpaper?

I apologize for asking so many questions into one single thread. :D


Put the images you want to try out in the background folder. Any size will do. The image will be either stretched, skewed or resized to fit the screen. I tried out an image that was 8000x10000 pixels, and it worked fine. That's the biggest picture I tried. There is no interval. (Interval plus emulating two cpus? Seems like that's going to slow down emulation a bit...)

Sorry for the stupid question, but do you already know how to set the image?
No. No no no no no no.

It's not a stupid question and yes I figured how to set the background image up myself by testing it so thanks JeaneMaggie.

It's not bad but most of the screen is covering up the background image so you can only see the top and bottom portion of the image but that's fine with me it's a new look and feel better then plain black background.

This would totally be ideal and great for tablets.

Don't bother trying to shove a live background image into Drastic it may work if you know how to do it but it'll cause lag and drain battery even more.

Does live background image work too? I'll try it out I don't care if it consumes battery, my device has sufficient processing power to do heavy tasks.


Thanks. And I have no idea if it works with live images...
No. No no no no no no.

I gave up on trying to force a live background image as I couldn't obtain the dam file.

Words never break me lol, also Eric this means you can finally add Pokemon background to Drastic @_@ :ds:

I'm surprised you still pop memes on, Exophase said stop and his word is absolute so I completely.stopped my meme spam in respect. But as for my signature...uhh

I asked for optimizations for 3D rendering and a new Drastic UI for the menu but people rejected my ideas but Lordus and Exophase updated it anyway so I respect that. Great developers ever, not many developers do this.

Just don't derail topics in general or the help sub forum with meme wars/spam and you are probably safe. If all memes were banned in non off the wll forum posts Jay would probably go through horrible withdrawal.
