240p and pixel perfect emulation for consoles?
« on: December 18, 2017, 04:03:25 am »
After finally got a working setup with groovymame and all the 240p glory I move on the console side of things.

This may be stupid question but do all the emulators for the 240p consoles in general output the native resolution automatically? Letīs take the snes at 256 x 224 (NTSC). Will it ouput this pixel perfect for example with the emulator station or znes, as long as you have low resolution and a crt monitor that can out it? Or are there "special" emulators for crt /low lag use, like groovymame?

Thanks!

It's different for every emulator, that's why I'd recommend sticking to RetroArch and/or Mednafen which can handle several systems.

RetroArch let's you set up individual fullscreen resolutions per system (even per-game), but you can also use super resolutions so you don't have to set them all up one by one.
If you're not familiar with RetroArch you should start by getting familiar with it first. Once you're there, here's a configuration file template setup with super resolutions

Mame does do quite a bit of consoles well.
