    Hey all, I have looked through the forums and have kind of seen this asked before, but it seemed to only be about emulation station and snes. My question is, is there a way to adjust the resolution or screen size of the emulators/roms. I don’t really have a problem with the display being to small its more like the picture is being cut off. Is there anything I can do like mess with some kind of global variable or would I have to go in and tinker through each emulator and or rom?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks 🙂

    First thing you should try is look in your tv/monitor settings for a ‘fit to screen ‘ option

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    You can look at the es_systems.cfg file – usually in /etc/emulationstation

    and change the value (between 1 and 8)

    Otherwise it may be overscan
