– CONFIGURATION TIPS –

RETROARCH VIDEO DRIVER:

  • Use Vulkan or any Open GL driver (Direct X drivers are buggy with animated overlays)

VIDEO SCALING:

  • Set the screen scaling to 4:3 in a 16.9 display to get a fullscreen perfect overlay fit. Otherwise set the video scaling manually to fit your device display.
  • Integer Scale set to OFF

OVERLAY SETTINGS:

  • Set the “AUTO SCALE OVERLAY” option to ON in non wide displays. (square displays like crt tv’s, vga monitors, lcd panels, etc.) Otherwise you’ll get displaced controls.
  • Set Overlay Opacity to 1.0
  • Set Show Inputs on Overlay to: Physical (Controller)
  • Set Show Inputs from Port to: 1

thank you for sharing. Looks very good the overlay. By any means could you share the presets being used in the demostration video ?

Thank you! And those are the default crt presets.

Thank you a lot for this content. I see a lot of potential to it and definetely encourage to make it for other consoles (if ever possible). I would love to see from you if it’s possible an overlay for NES but specially Sega Genesis with either the 3 or 6 buttons controller…

Just testing up with keyboard I already got a lot of fun. Can imagine how it does even better with a controller.

thank you so much for this contribution. Will love your Genesis one. I think this may be top type of content for RetroArch and hopefully is within the main files and I hope newer designs can be done. Thank you so much again.
