Question about interlaced, vertical games
« on: March 29, 2018, 01:12:18 pm »
Hi all, new member here.

I currently have an issue running some vertical games in horizontal mode and I hope somebody can help me. Certain vertical shooters like Raiden 2 and DoDonPachi appear in a really small box in the middle of the screen. I have noticed that all of the games affected are running in interlaced resolutions. Is there a way to use a little more of the screen's real estate? I tried to disable interlaced resolutions but the image went way off the top and bottom of the screen. By the time I'd squashed the game back down, it looked dreadful.

Hi,

I realised that my frontend was pointing to an older version of GM. Sorry people. All good now.

Sorry to hyjack this thread, but  I haven't been able to get any vertical games going on my GM setup using a Sony Trinitron KV-27FS100 CRT TV.

Is there a special vertical.ini that people use so it doesn't affect horizontal games? If so, someone please post one or give some advice please.

Right now horizontal games look absolutely beautiful and I've learned my away around my TV's service mode so I'm able to fix geometry issues rather easily. If I can get vertical games working as well then my setup will be that much better  :)
