Hehe, I run the emulators in 720p and don't turn any of the filters on, what results in glorious 1cm x 1cm perfectly sharp pixels on my tv! It makes retro gaming even more retro!! I hate using the filters to blur or smooth the graphics of emulated games, pixellation is glorious.
Sire, this is something I was never capable to test, and never had nobody to tell me good things about. Are you using 720p in what TV? It is a LCD TV? What is the size of it? Resolution? Brand? Model? I really don't get how it is possible to have the original Xbox 720x480 screen (SD TV) to be displayed, for example, in a 1368 x 768 LCD one, avoiding the native interpolation/scalling of the HD TV itself.
For me it ever was as just running a Windows in 800x600 in a 1024x768 LCD monitor, a hell of a blur originated from the upscalling and interpolation.
What exactly happens when you change your dash config to 720p?
What is the size of the Xbox screen resolution by doing so?
And, are the * Xport *
emulators compatible to 720p?
NES, SNES, GENESIS, PCENGINE, MASTER SYSTEM, etc?
I know that the new CoinOPS is...
Are the emulators but really tough guys on 720p?
Or they present several bugs?
I really appreciate if you can help me with those questions.
If you check my signature you will see I am a but neurotic with original screen aspect ration and damn' pixelated, not blurred, screens. It is the law of my world.
For example, if I double the 640x480 screen I get 1280x960, so, 960 does not fit inside the 720p, which is of course, 720px on height.
To get correct aspect ratio on a bitmap/pixel screen I should respect the original aspect ratio, always "double-ing" the size. Genesis original sign is 320x240, to display on regular 480i I should have my emulator set to 640x480, which is the perfect double size.
If I have my Xbox running on 1280x720, I can't double my Genesis screen, because it requires 1280x960 on height! And more --- The TV requires 1368x768 on it! The TV will FORCE this size on the image and will generate scalling and interpolation.
GOD. I am so confused.
I will bend down to ground now and cry.
BlackBolt, are you able to provide a PICTURE of your screen running Sonic on NeoGenesis? 2 pictures... one from entire screen, and one closer to it?
