With the discontinuation of the RGR Plugin inching closer (which will be January 1st, 2021 due to flash being discontinued in most browsers), I've been prioritizing the RetroArch emulator on Vizzed, which supports a ton of systems and plays right in the browser. If you missed the recent 2 updates, you can find those here and here.


RGR Banner
I updated the Retro Game Room banner and also the banner's background image. I wanted it to grab the attention of guests with all of the character and system icons, which also briefly shows what kind of content the RGR offers. And then once their attention is grabbed, I have it briefly telling them what the RGR has to offer (60+ Systems, 40,000+ games) and then also wanted it to bring to the attention of new people and site veterans that the games also work on a mobile device. It's a lot of information I wanted to convey with just a banner and it was difficult doing so without making it too much of a mess (still kind of a mess but kinda organized) but I felt like it had to be done since a lot of guests land on this site via a game page and that page may be the last page they ever see so that page has to sell to them the rest of the site.


Adjustable Resolution
For the RetroArch emulator, you can now select which resolution you'd like to play the game in. If you have a slow computer, or are on a mobile device, going with a lower resolution will perform better for you. If you're on a really big screen and have the power to back it up, go with a higher resolution.


Easier to Access Menu for Desktops
If you're on a computer, the menu may have been a little tricky to open up in the past for the RetroArch emulator. Now the entire screen can be hovered over to open up the menu.


Controls in Menu for Desktops
If you're on a computer, you may not have known what the controls were for the RetroArch emulator (assuming you're not using a controller). Now the menu shows the controls. Now these controls are just basic and don't show all of the possible controls for every system. It also shows more controls than what you can use for some systems. I'll fine tune all of this at a later point.
