I'm using dosbox to play many games and I love it ! However, I struggle quite a lot to have screen resolutions ok for all my games.
Playing with scalers, I googled to see if a normal4x would be available on dosbox on newer versions but I didn't find any positive answer. Did I miss something ?
I found on the forum a couple of threads with attached patches to add the normal4x mode. All threads are quite ridiculous to read a couple of years after (discussion from "who on earth would have a screen resolution higher than 1024x768" to "I closed this thread because someone said something idiot").
I even found a tutorial on "how to patch yourself your dosbox to have normal4x" ( ashton-lockey.blogspot.fr/2012/03/dosbo ... eater.html ).
At this point, it's just getting ridiculous. It doesn't seem to be a technical problem (the patch seems just trivial and there were many proposed). I don't think anyone would deny that many people today have 1920x1080 screens, which makes the point for 4x or 5x modes. And we know that tomorrow will see bigger resolution screens.
So, can someone explain what's going wrong with this request ?
