Video Scaling in Emulator
I have been having an issue changing the video scaling for N64 games only. When I change the scaling in the retroarch menu I see the change, but it is lost as soon as I exit the menu. I cant even play the game with the new scale. No other emulators have this issue.
This is a Pi 4 running 4.7.1 on a 4K tv with 4K enabled. Emulator is lr-Muppen64plaus-next, but none of the other emaultors make any difference.

strange ? after changing the scaling .. back up to the Quick Menu, and then at the very bottom of the list, select Overrides and then Save Game Overrides, Exit the Game and launch it again.
the config file for game overrides is located in
optionally, you can manually create a config for the game eg. my copy of Doom 64 has a file named Doom 64.cfg and these are my scaling contents (aspect 23 is "custom" and set the width,height,x and y manually)
all_users_control_menu = "false" video_crop_overscan = "false" custom_viewport_width = "1280" custom_viewport_height = "1024" custom_viewport_x = "0" custom_viewport_y = "0" aspect_ratio_index = "23" video_shader_enable = "true"
@dreamcastkid Thanks for the feedback. I tried both suggestions without having luck. It's almost as if there is a setting somewhere not allowing changes to be made at the game or emulator level. I can see changes made to the game screen while in the Retroarch menu (in the background), but not once I leave the menu, I am right back to the original screen with black borders.
Have you tried increasing the resolution from the Core options (needs a restart) ? Mind you, anything above 640 x 480 will probably be too much for a Pi4.
@mitu I did. Thanks. Core Resolution is currently set at 640 x 480.
Is there anything that would keep game specific overrides from applying. I get notifications that Overrides have saved successfully, but something is keeping it from showing visual changes made (I lose changes as soon as I leave the Retroarch menu and go back into the game). Additionally, I am able to make other changes via Retroarch to games or the N64 emulator that do apply. For example removing widgets and in-game notifications are functioning appropriately.
Assuming you're using the Video Scaling options - what exactly do you have set-up there ? Isn't the video fullscreen (vertically at least) ? This is what it looks like here
@mitu This was helpful. I think I have solved the issue! Thanks
