    Hello,

    Using my 19 inch Monitor witht the Pi 2 and fired up Final Fight and others in Mame and it’s not full screen, all games have black borders at the top and bottom, how do I fix this please?

    Can you confirm which arcade emulator you are running?

    We can probably tell from the path the roms are in. Depending on the emulator it will have a different config file.

    Here are the options:

    I’m using mame4all Floob. Not sure which is best to be honest.

    Well the mame4all specific config file is
    /opt/retropie/configs/mame-mame4all/mame.cfg

    In that file you can adjust a border here:
    display_border=0

    but I think the defaut is 0.

    Maybe you need to make sure your monitor is set correctly here?

    This is done in
    /boot/config.txt

    Yes it is set to display_border=0

    Too much to configure in /boot/config.txt I’m not sure where to start, do I need to focus on the HDMI parts only, eventhough my monitor is DVI?

    Thanks

    Delete the # before disableoverscan=1 in boot/config.txt, save your edits and reboot and see if that makes any difference.

    Hmm that didn’t change anything either.

    The Punisher (what a game btw) has a black border on the top and bottom.
    Ghost n Goblins has black borders on the left and right but are ok on the top and bottom.
