    Hi everyone –

    Got my psx emulator running now, but the graphics are really bad… trying to figure out if this is normal for the retropie or if there is something I can do settings wise to help fix it and get some decent stuff.

    You can enable bilinear filtering (video_smooth = true) or shaders.

    I updated /etc/retroarch.cfg to make video_smooth = true, but that seemed to have no effect.

    Change /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg or /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/psx/retroarch.cfg.

    Thanks… The psx specific one was empty, so I updated /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    Still, no noticeable effect.

    Gonna try to get a screenshot posted… For example, words on the screen are super garbled. Readable, but garbled.

    PlayStation games were rendered in a 4:3 ratio at 320×240 resolution.

    So, What are we doing wrong?

    My NES, SNES, Genesis are running well.

    I dont believe you are doing anything wrong as 320×240 resolution looks like crap on your 1080×720 screen, I felt the same way when I booted it up so I googled the resolution thinking it would have been 640×480 but it is only half that so that is why it looks like it does.

    The picture resolution for the NES is 256 x 240 so they should look crappier LOL if not might have to do with scaling to a larger screen?

    If anyone is still having issues with this, like already mentioned I recommend bilinear filtering and setting the aspect ratio and resolution in the retroarch.cfg file. I am still tinkering with the PSX for me shaders are all rubbish, would love high res textures but doubt the pi can handle it

    I play FF VII and someone one redid all the textures and models in the PC version and really does make the PSX version look like a Vic20 edition 😀

    FF7
