Emulationstation not sticking to 4:3 ratio
Hey guys and girls . Ive searched and asked reddit and facbook with no help .
I'm having a weird issue with Emulationstation where it will not for the life of me go into a 4:3 screen ratio . It's forever staying full screen .
I have so far changed to new themes set for 4:3 and nothing .
overscan has zero effect.
Change almost everysetting in boot/config file. and no change .
The only trhing that has made a slight diffrence was
emulationstation --resolution 640 480
But wasnt in the centre of the screen and wouldn't save .
Heres my boot config im using but like I said I have changed everything
# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode #hdmi_safe=1 # uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible # and your display can output without overscan disable_overscan=0 # uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console # goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border overscan_left=-50 overscan_right=-50 #overscan_top=16 #overscan_bottom=16 # uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display's size minus # overscan. #framebuffer_width=640 #framebuffer_height=480 # uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output hdmi_force_hotplug=1 # uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA) #hdmi_group=1 #hdmi_mode=1 # uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in # DMT (computer monitor) modes #hdmi_drive=2 # uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or # no display #config_hdmi_boost=4 # uncomment for composite PAL #sdtv_mode=2 #uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default. #arm_freq=800 # Uncomment some or all of these to enable the optional hardware interfaces dtparam=i2c_arm=on #dtparam=i2s=on dtparam=spi=on enable_uart=1 # Uncomment this to enable the lirc-rpi module #dtoverlay=lirc-rpi # Additional overlays and parameters are documented /boot/overlays/README # Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835) dtparam=audio=on hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=2 hdmi_mode=87 hdmi_cvt 480 800 60 0 0 0 0 dtoverlay=ads7846,cs=1,penirq=25,penirq_pull=2,speed=50000,keep_vref_on=0,swapxy=0,pmax=255,xohms=150,xmin=200,xmax=3900,ymin=200,ymax=3900 display_rotate=3 hdmi_drive=1 hdmi_force_hotplug=1 #max_usb_current=1
Any help or suggestion would be great
Also add that the bootscreen and all the games are set in 4:3 , which makes me think theres some hard setting in emulationstation overriding boot config.
And I'm using a 4 inch Waveshare HDMI screen.
config.txtfile and then run
emulationstationwithout any parameters.
@mitu no luck :( .
It's a weird one because my boot screen and games are set correctly , it's just emulation station. So I did manage to get the screen to the correct aspect but it's not centred. I have no idea how I would centre the emustation image. I changed the code to auto boot like this
Emulationstation --resolution 640 480 windowed
@shawnclifton Emulationstation has also the ability to set a window display offset with the
--screenoffset x y
Maybe this can help you position the ES window.
@mitu ahhh ok , I'm at work right now but I'll give it a try when im home . That looks promising tho .
@mitu That worked !!! 3 days that took and sleepless nights lol . Here's some code for people who may have the same problem
emulationstation --resolution W H --windowed --screenoffset X Y
Thanks a lot !
