Citra - Texture Pack Guide

The ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/citra/ represents the /load/textures folder in Citra.

Note:
Some texture packs could made for a specific version or region of a game. Make sure you have the right game and textures for it.

Note:
TITLEID is different for every game.

Enable Custom Textures

  • Open up Citra inside RetroDECK Configurator by pressing Open Emulator - Citra.
  • Press Emulation -> Configure -> Graphics -> Use Custom Textures and set it to On.

How do I add texture packs?

Requirements: Texture pack files

NOTE: On the Steam Deck this could be easier to do in Desktop Mode.

There are two ways of adding texture packs into Citra

From Citra

  1. Extract any texture files from compressed .zip or any other format to folders.
  2. Open up Citra inside RetroDECK Configurator by pressing Open Emulator - Citra.
  3. Right click on the game you want to add textures into.
  4. Click on Open Custom Textures Location.
  5. Paste the texture folders inside that directory, each folder is stored by the TITLLEID of the game.
  6. Quit Citra

From the texture folder directly

  1. Extract any texture pack files from compressed .zip or any other format into folders.
  2. Go into ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/citra/. The folders are all named by TITLEID.
  3. Move textures into the right ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/citra/<TITLEID> folder.

Example:

  • You have a .zip file for a game that contains the /load/textures/0000001000 folders.
  • All you need to do is take the TITLEID folder: 0000001000 and put it into ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/citra/
  • So the end result looks like: ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/citra/0000001000
