Monochrome Display on Full HD Screen

Unread post by manni199 »

The monochrome screen gets upscaled for the HD screen, but this upscaling doesn‘t look very good.

I‘d like exact double height and width. So original 640x400 should be upscaled to 1280x800. That should look much better.

Or is there something in the setup menu that I missed?

Have you set vscale_mode=0 to vscale_mode=1 in the mister.ini? This enables integer scaling.

No, I didn‘t change the INI-File.
I only used the core menu.

But I‘ll test it.
thank you for reply

I tried all four modes.
But all modes look bad.
In the end mode=0 (scaling to max size) works best.

When using vscale_mode=2 i'd expect a 1:2 scaling.
One pixel on Atari SM124 ist 2x2 pixel on HD screen.
Result should be 1280x800 pixel are used on HD screen.

??

The Atari monochrome screen on the Emulator HATARI looks great (when ist starts).
Every pixel from Atari SM124 is one pixel in emulator window.
Very tiny, but very crisp and sharp.
I didn't see this on MiSTer.

When I upscale the resolution e.g. to full screen on HATARI there are same problems than in MiSTer.

But don't waste time on this problem.
Full screen quality is ok for me.
It was only a question if there is an option to have exactly square pixels also when upscaling.
