Dolphin / Primehack - Texture Pack Guide

Primehack is based on Dolphin so the method is the same.

The ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/dolphin/ & ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/primehack/ represents the /load/Textures folder.

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.
GAME_ID is different for every game.

Enable Custom Textures

  • Open up Dolphin or Primehack inside RetroDECK Configurator by pressing Open Emulator - Dolphin or Primehack.
  • Press Options -> Graphic Settings

Load Custom Textures and set it to On.

Prefetch 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.

Directly in the folder

  1. Extract any texture pack files from compressed .zip or any other format into folders.

  2. Go into texture pack folders, they contain folders that are all named by GAME_ID.

  3. Move the textures into the right folder:
    Dolphin: ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/dolphin/<GAME_ID>
    Primehack: ~/retrodeck/texture_packs/primehack/<GAME_ID>
