    Hello;

    Could you help me with an issue.
    I play on a Wide TV of 127cm.
    Is it possible to redifine the screen size to play in 4:3 mode ?

    Thanks.

    You mean when you start up roms? It’s probably possible to set in retroarch.cfg

    Hello;

    I find a way;
    video_aspect_ratio = 1.175

    I think works on “video_fullscreen_x” and “video_fullscreen_y” to have a better display resolution
    video_fullscreen_x = 720
    video_fullscreen_y = 336

    I’ve a 127cm wide TV HD 1080p
    Do you think I can do better with this param ?

    If you edit es_systems.cfg via SSH:

    nano /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

    Locate the emulator you wish to modify and change the runcommand.sh start type from 1 to 2. For example, in the Playstation section you need to change this line:

    /home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 1

    so it reads:

    DESCNAME=Sony Playstation 1
    NAME=psx
    PATH=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx
    EXTENSION=.img .IMG .7z .7Z .pbp .PBP .bin .BIN
    COMMAND=/home/pi/RetroPie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 2 "/home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/retroarch -L /home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/pcsx_rearmed/libretro.so --config /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg --appendconfig /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/psx/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"
    PLATFORMID=10
    

    Then press ctrl-x and then y to save.
    This should preserve the aspect ratio

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