I hope this has not been asked before and I missed it, but I was wondering if anyone was using a 50 inch 1080p tv when using retro pie and if so, what do you have the resolution set for in retropie. Seems like when I play the video is stretch a little and possibly not as clear as it should be. Thanks in advance.
I think when you say video is ‘stretched’ you mean the aspect ratio is not correct? You could stop the runcommand script from changing the resolution down to VGA when emulators are started by editing 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:
This will keep the aspect ratio equivalent to the display resolution. There may be a slight performance hit by running at a higher resolution. I have tried emulators at VGA and 720p and haven’t noticed any difference myself.
If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.
I’m not sure if this is a related issue but I am using a 7″ monitor and the console text and xgui are every small, almost unreadable. I have tried changing some things in the boot config but when I get the text readable emulation station won’t start. any help is appreciated.
