    Anyone know if there is a way to get Atari 2600 to fill the screen? Right now it’s in a very small box in the center of the screen, but I want to stretch it larger. I’ve done a lot of searching and all I can find is the retroarch config to change the aspect ratio, which works (squashes or stretched) but it still stays in a very small box on my HDTV.



    Mmmmm, mine fills the screen, try:

    Editing the es_system.cfg file so that for the Atari 2600 <command> it reads 2, arther than 1

    The 1 makes it go to VGA whereas the 2 keeps the existing resolution.

    And set your TV Pictue Mode (or equivalent) to 4:3 ratio

    Those two changes worked for me !



    Sweet, that worked. Thanks!
