Feed Properties Editor

The "Feed Properties Editor" is used to edit high-level information about the feed, including a title, an optional description, and optional images.

Note

The fields within the "Feed Properties Editor" support drag and drop functionality. See the Drag and Drop section for more information. Specifically the sections demonstrating how to Drag Text and Drag Images.

General Tab

The general tab consists of basic information about the feed (title, description, etc.).

Fields

Field Description
Title A title for the feed.
Long title A long title for the feed (will be used in locations with additional room for display).
Description A description of the feed.

Properties Tab

The properties tab consists of fields that are global for the various Application types that are contained within the feed.

For example, the Atari Lynx Boot ROM field shown in the screenshot above, is used to specify the location (URL) of the Lynx Boot ROM that is required by Atari Lynx items.

Thumbnail Tab

The thumbnail tab allows a thumbnail for the feed to be specified. The thumbnail image will be displayed in the webЯcade player.

Fields

Field Description
Thumbnail location (URL) The location (URL) of a thumbnail image for the feed.

The dimensions of the image must be 400x300 or it may not be displayed (see Thumbnails section for more information).

This field supports drag and drop of image-based URLs (see Drag Images for more information).
Thumbnail image The image corresponding to the specified URL in Thumbnail location.

Image-based URLs can be dragged and dropped on the image to set the Thumbnail location (see Drag Images for more information).

Background Tab

The background tab allows a background image for the feed to be specified. The background image will be displayed in the webЯcade player.

Fields

Field Description
Background location (URL) The location (URL) of a background image for the feed.

This field supports drag and drop of image-based URLs (see Drag Images for more information).
Pixelated Scaling Whether to pixelate the image when it is sized to fit the dimensions of the webЯcade player. This option should typically be enabled when a screenshot with smaller dimensions is being used as a background image. Without enabling this option, the screenshot will most likely appear blurry when stretched to fit the player's dimensions.
Background image The image corresponding to the specified URL in Background location.

Image-based URLs can be dragged and dropped on the image to set the Background location (see Drag Images for more information).
