I'm having trouble figuring out the graphics options. I have a 1920x1200 display. I would like to play 320x200 DOS games at 1600x1200 with hq3x. If I set:
I get the desired resolution with vertical black bars at the sides but without the hq3x interpolation. If I change scaler to hq3x like so:
then I get the hq3x scaling but it isn't stretched to the edges of the desired 1600x1200 viewable area. I've tried playing around with other settings but the results are usually less good and more confusing.
As a point of comparison, I am able to play games on ScummVM with an hq3x scaler and correct aspect ratio. It scales the game to 1600x1200 and the hq3x is working well.
Is this possible to achieve with vanilla DOSBox and if so how? If not, is it possible with DOSBox ECE, X, or Staging, or maybe a different fork I haven't encountered? I'm not hellbent on hq3x, an xBR variant would be great. It's correct aspect ratio plus sharp interpolation that I'm looking for.
