Problems changing resolutions
« on: December 27, 2018, 08:11:09 PM »
Hi! I'm new here, I'm using Retrofe with a 15hz crt and I have a little problem:
I'm using 640x240 as default resolution, and Retrofe displays nicely.
Some pc games, for example Badland. For this the resolution that works best is 480x240 but it doesn't change itself, so I use a tool called Multires to change the resolution with commandline before the game runs, and when exiting, restore the previous resolution. The problem is when returning retrofe, I see it cut like in the image:
It cuts the image and only shows the previous x resolution space (480) in the new resolution (640).
Fom arcade games I'm using Groovymame, which changes the resolution itself for each game, and it does not produce this problem.

Any tip for this? I tried changing settings.conf with and height to stretch, windowed and fullscreen and unload Sdl true false but no way
thanks

Is this under Windows or under Linux? I've seen similar issues when using the PCSX emulator in the "wrong" graphics mode, so I can see if I can figure out what's causing this.

It's windows 10, What do you mean with "wrong pcsx graphics mode"? I use it too

I noticed that if PCSX wasn't set to 1920x1080 it would mess up RetroFE when returning from PCSX, similarly to what you described above.
