RetroArch video settings on PS2

  • I'm not sure if RetroArch on the PS2 is supported here, but I'm really stuck. And full disclaimer, I’m a total newbie when it comes to this stuff.

    I just installed RetroArch on my PS2 using FreeMcBoot, and I’m using PicoDrive as the core. I have a question about video settings. The game I am trying to play loads and runs great. The problem is with the aspect ratio.

    When I run the game, it looks squished horizontally, making the screen look too skinny. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get the game to run in its intended aspect ratio (which I’m assuming is 4:3). To avoid the “stretch”, I can set my TV to “widescreen”, but then it’s too wide, and it would be a pain to have to do that each time.

    Here's some reference, with the original aspect ratio the left, and my results on the right:


    Thanks in advance for any help!

  • @paulo75 you'd be better asking questions at a specialist Retroarch forum. This forum is for Retropie and the varients of it for Pi and Linux installs really.
