Linux/Mednafen: Aspect ratio wrong in fullscreen mode

Post by ^rooker »

[PROBLEM]
Running "mednafen" emulator in full screen has black borders left/right.

[SOLUTION]
You can configure X/Y scaling factor for full-screen, for each emulator.

For example, in order to configure the output of NES to fit on a 4:3 computer screen, edit the following 2 lines in "~/.mednafen/mednafen.cfg":

Code: Select all

;The scaling factor for the X axis in fullscreen mode.
nes.xscalefs 2.5

;The scaling factor for the Y axis in fullscreen mode.
nes.yscalefs 2
Default scaling factor for both X and Y is "2".
