Hi, i am setting up a RA 1.8.1 build on a Sony BVM CRT, but i am having trouble setting the resolutions for PAL games using Mednafen HW. More specifically, i am using non-integer scaling and would like to output PAL games using 288p. However, i cannot get the system to switch to this resolution automatically when launching a game, it always defaults back to 240p (the menu default). Setting the resolution manually to 288p works perfectly, so the mode itself is properly supported.
I tried combining various settings: using an integer Hz, changing the desktop resolution before opening RA, integer_scaling, crop_overscan, video_aspect_ratio_auto, video_force_aspect; but to no avail.
Note that using core_provided probably isnt going to cut it, as the hectic on-the-fly resolution switching on the PS1 causes many graphical issues, most notably that it switches to 240p when outputting 288p PAL content, and upscaling the resolution isn’t a possibility for me without switching to an interlaced signal.
Here is an overview of the game-specific overrides (i verified that the options are loaded), and there is no sensible log at verbose level because there are no reported errors.
aspect_ratio_index = 23 video_aspect_ratio = 8.889 video_scale_integer = "false" custom_viewport_width = "2560" custom_viewport_height = "288" video_fullscreen_x = "2560" video_fullscreen_y = "288" video_refresh_rate = "51"
Thanks for your input!
