Are you sure about this? It’s very possible that the highest quality results might be achievable from some of my more mature and stable offerings and the newer offerings might be more experimental in nature.
Take my console specific presets for example. Some are actually identical to the presets in the main preset parent folder but they’re just copied and renamed in order to make it easier for users to match preset with console.
Hmmm…I don’t think you should use a resolution that doesn’t scale evenly on your screen. It might be best to stick to 1440p (2560 x 1600 in your case). You can use any preset at any resolution however, the Mask Type, sizes, overall sharpness and brightness may not translate well from 4K or 1080p Optimized presets to 1440o presets.
So you might have to use different Mask and Sharpness settings to achieve similar results.
I don’t currently have a 1440p screen with RetroArch setup to properly test new 1440p presets currently.
Back in the day, I used to run my 4K screen at 1440p and 1080p in order to develop and test those presets.
This won’t work anymore now that I develop things down to the “phosphor” level. I would need to “see” properly for me to do proper development and testing.
Especially with things like Slot Mask presets, I’ll definitely need to be able to see how things look and line up natively for me to do things in the best possible way.
What do you really think you’re missing out on though? What consoles/systems do you emulate?
Sharing some screenshots as well as photos of the screen might actually be a good way to assist me in seeing how things look today.
That’s an easy way in which you can help further the development of some more 1440p presets.
If you look at my MBZ_3_STANDARD_FULL_REFLECTIONS folder, you’ll see that I recently updated my @Soqueroeu-TV Backgrounds CyberLab Special Edition Presets with 1440p as well as 1080p Optimized presets.
Don’t forget that you can use my shader presets with my custom CyberLab Blargg NTSC Video Filter presets as well as the core supplied Blargg NTSC Video Filters.
So in other words, what I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t be missing out on much when it comes to quality by using 1440p Optimized presets at 1440p resolution.
Yes, there are less options available but at least it might be less confusing.
In my last tests I’ve always admired how close the 1440p Optimized offerings looked compared to my 4K_Optimized offerings.
Feel free to chime in with some screenshots and let’s see if there’s anything more specific that I can assist you with when it comes to improving your experience.
