Re: 5× vertical *per-game* integer scaling for Amiga is here

Hi everyone ! If I'm not mistaken, the current default integer scaling factor for the Amiga on the MiSTer in 1080p is actually 3X (286 lines with overscan according to the OSD) and not 4X. I was really shocked when starting DOS games in 320*200 because they were scaled 5X and it looked ultra chunky....

Re: Thanks for all the work on the C64

There are tons of sound options already : left & right SIDs, OPL 2 sound expander, filters, digimax :)

I love the work done on this core too ! Thank you, Sorge !

Re: VSCALE_BORDER not taken into consideration ?

I temporarily worked around this by specifying a vscale_border of 140 to get a 4x scaling with perfect scanlines on the DOS core. Obviously, it only works if games use a 320x200 resolution. Of the game is in 320x240 (ex. Blackthorne) scanlines look bad :)

Hehe, yeah, I'm an ST/Amiga guy and was shocked back then when seeing the same games on my friends' PCs. They looked way blockier ;)

Hi ! That's an impressive piece of work and definitely ultra useful for people who weren't really into DOS back in the days (skipped from the Amiga to Windows 95 directly).

Re: VSCALE_BORDER not taken into consideration ?

Just to be more accurate : in the past, when enabling both vscale_border and integer scaling, what would happen was : - for instance, if you used a 1080p mode with a border of 50 and a 240p core - it would find the biggest possible multiply of 240 in (1080 minus 50) - in this case : it would make no...

Hi ! Thanks for the reply ! Hmm, the behaviour must have changed then, because it used to work along with integer scaling. Thanks for the suggestion but if I use lowres = 4x I cannot apply the scanlines properly to the base picture but only to the upscaled one ! Tricky one Indeed ! :) Would be aweso...

Re: VSCALE_BORDER not taken into consideration ?

Hi Sorge ! Actually, unless I'm mistaken, it's not applied in any core ATM ? I'm trying to make the DOS (or SNES, Neo Geo, Genesis) core use a smaller form factor -- 5x is too much for me, I want to stick to 4x as the Amiga core, easier on my eyes, less blocky... The picture is closer to what I used...

Re: Games switching to interlaced mode : scaling factor not restored properly

Bump ! :-) No one has this issue at all ? What happens is some games get stuck in (I think) 3x scaling mode instead of 4x after temporarily switching to interlaced resolution back to normal non-interlaced low-res. I use a regular integer scaling mode. As I said, titles triggering it are : Uridium 2,...

Hi ! Apart from some more speed I'd vote for a Gravis Ultrasound implementation. It would be fantastic for the demoscene. An FPGA implementation of the MT-32 but as the mt32-pi is officially supported, it must mean it's kinda out of scope :) Of course, I'm just dreaming aloud :) I'm already very hap...

You can change the voltage for the fan to 3v with the jumper on the board so it will be quiet and still provide enough cooling and airflow. Yep, sorry I saw that in the meantime & edited my post :) I'm wondering if the Noctua at 3v is silent. At full speed it (this very fan) was very noisy on my pr...

Re: Games switching to interlaced mode : scaling factor not restored properly

Hi ! Thanks for your reply ! Did you try Uridium 2, SOTB 3, Lionheart, Bill's Tomato Game, or multiball modes in flippers ?
All four incorrectly switch back to a non-interlaced mode.
Hmm, actually, I really don't want to get a 5x scaling factor -- I prefer a smaller a finer picture :)

Re: Games switching to interlaced mode : scaling factor not restored properly

Hi ! I've given a try again and this issue still occurs.
For instance, try to play Lionheart : the ingame scaling factor is still incorrect and the picture is way too small ; same as Bill's Tomato for instance.
