Narrow Game or Game in Half??

Post by raycade » Thu Feb 13, 2020 5:56 pm

Hi,

Although my experiences with the ARpiCADE is quite good, I discovered that some games are a weird in their presentations.
While most of the other games are ok. I'm running everything lowres 240p-ish...

How can I fix those games?

I think the Timber issue comes from running in 240p only mode. Timber originally ran at 480i so there's literally only half as many lines as you need to display it fully at 240p.

Not sure what the other game is offhand or which version of MAME it's in however I would recommend trying it in a different version of MAME, each version of MAME has it's quirks. MAME 078 may be good for the these games as Retroarchs scaling can be set however you like. If it's in MAME 172 (or newer) it may be worth having a look in the sliders part of the MAME menu - it can adjust the size of the image a bit.
