    @juice what screen are you using and what cfg pack?



  • i am using a 49 lg 1080p tv ,pi running at 1080p . and using crt-pi_fbalpha_configs_1920x1080 or crt-pi_mame2003_configs_1920x1080 depending with emulator i am using. i trying 1942 rom out using mame 2003. screen looks full width but to length cut of top and bottom. so i need to shrink the the sides down and the height to fit the screen , let alone the bezel.
    this is my cfg i know it wrong but fits right with bezel but bad picture.
    thanks (ps i using this directory \RETROPIE\configs\all\retroarch\config\FB Alpha)

    @juice that is a non-default .cfg with lots of settings that will affect picture/resolution so i don't know what to suggest, really. the cfgs in that thread are for default retropie.

  • @dankcushions is there a way to delete all the cfg and start again, or do i need to make a fresh build. i would like to use you files as it is the way forward
