Glad you asked! I have tried for weeks to get 1.4 to play vector games at my native resolution with no luck. Last year, after many late nights with PiPlay, I was able to get native resolution on Vector games using 1.2 and this config. So, with RetroPie I finally tried a test with the pre-compiled advmame 1.2 executable from my other SD card (running PiPlay) and simply replaced the advmame .94 binary as a test. This was a feeble attempt at leveraging at least some runcommand flexibility–use 1.4 for most stuff, but for vector games, I could select .94 and know that it was actually running the 1.2 advmame I copied over.

My .94 swap is kludgy, and I don’t get much traction with other posts on this topic which is why I did the test. When it worked, I figured maybe I could just get 1.2 setup properly with runcommand support. I am still willing to try suggestions, but I have already tried this config (corrected the paths) to no avail in 1.4. Could there be a difference in the retropie-compiled versions of 1.4 that specifically prevents 1280×1024? On a previous post, you seemed to suggest thats the case. But, with the coming changes possibly to the default resolutions in RetroPie, I am definitely interested in making this work well. Once you have seen the crisp vector lines, it’s hard to go back to blurry 640×480 for vector classics.

Here’s my 1.2 config (game-specific input mapping removed):
