    ok, i’m wanting to make some overlays for each system and want to scale down the aspect ratios, but not sure how to work out what each system’s default aspect ratio is?

    I’ve found a few here.. http://smartretro.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=52

    and here… http://smartretro.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=57#top

    The usable area of the zx spectrum screen was of 256×192 pixels (4:3) but there was a border around it. This border had little use, only its color could be changed. In it also appeared the red/cyan and blue/yelow lines when a program was loading.

    Although there are “default” native resolutions, some games dont follow the rules, so its not 100% accurate unfortunately. Bear in mind some of those links in your first post show the res I wanted to display the output in, not the native resolution. For example I increased the GB to about 1.75 times the native size.

    Jaguar
    Max resolution – 800×576

    ZX Spectrum
    256 × 192

    N64
    240p (320×240), 288p (384×288), 480i (640×480), 576i (720×576)

    PS1
    320×240

    Cave Story
    320×240

    Virtual Boy
    384×224

    guys is there a full list of Aspect Ratios of Systems?
    and if add these to the retroarch configs will they be used as default? like the shaders & overlays?

    (as you can guess, i never got round to this in the end)

    thank you
