Hi, I’m trying to play a sega genesis game with hq3x shader. I’m using a 16:9/1080 tv as a monitor. The game is rendered as a 4:3 box in full screen, with black bars on the side.
I wish to play in a fully stretched mode, 16:9 aspect ratio. I have windows 8, with the latest version of retro-arch and genesis plus gx. The game i’m playing is Landstalkers. I’m using the shader hq3x but I’m willing to setter for hq2x or hq4x.
A lot of people will argument that games are meant to be played in 4:3 ratio and that it will look “ugly”, but this is not the case, as I already confirmed using Kega, that it looks wonderful in 16:9 aspect ratio. Sadly, there is a bug with kega and windows 8.1, and the FPS are cut down to half in kega(and the recommended solutions don’t work on my computer).
So I’m trying my next recommendation: genesis plus GX. This is my first time using retroarch, so I’m kinda confused and overwhelmed, so please kindly help me out.
