4x scalers ?

Postby Cutter » 2018-12-27 @ 20:06

Hello!

Would it be possible to add 4x scalers to fit HD resolutions ? A 320x240 game with normal4x could fit inside a 1920x1080 resolution. Currently I play with normal3x and the black borders are quite large. :dead:

Thanks.

I'm curious what the performance impact of a 4x scaler would be. I remember seeing a performance drop when moving from 2x to 3x. I would guess the performance impact on what sort of display output options you choose, maybe it would be manageable on ddraw.
Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.

Try DOSBox ECE that already support it https://blog.yesterplay80.net/dosbox-ece-en/

remember that you can't remove black borders with 4:3 games... (only aspect=false can remove it, but with distorsions...)
