I have a question about the correct aspect ratio setting to use for the original DOS version of SimCity running in DOSBox.
I thought that using "aspect=true" provides the most authentic experience, given that it attempts to scale the screen to the 4:3 ratio of old CRT monitors. I use this for almost all my DOS games.
There are a select few games, of which SimCity is one, where this seems to fail. Based on the attached screenshots, selecting "aspect=true" appears to squash the screen vertically, making all the squares look like rectangles.
I am wondering why this is so, and is there a way to obtain a proper 4:3 ratio for this game (and others) while avoiding distortion in the image?
