Re: 1.9.0.2 - Unable to "Add Game..."

For users that encounter this issue, there is now the possibility to use the ScummVM file browser instead of the system one (the options is in the Misc tab of the options dialog).

Re: Aspect ratio stretch pre-upscale or post-upscale?

Basically the game engine knows nothing about the stretch. All it knows about is the original game resolution, for example 320x200 pixels. So it will draw at that resolution and pass this to the backend. The backend is responsible for the interaction with the computer, phone or other device on which...

Re: Aspect ratio stretch pre-upscale or post-upscale?

Those two files will only give a partial answer (which I already gave here ). This actually depends on the graphics mode and stretch mode selected in the options. If you select the OpenGL graphics mode, then all the scaling and stretching, including the aspect ratio correction, is done in one pass (...

Re: Extract game files to run in DOS

Extract the file from where? If you are under the impression that ScummVM contains game files, then you are mistaken. You need to acquire the games separately . If you already have the games you want to play, it would be useful to know which games and which version of the game you have, but in most ...

Re: Infrastructure updates

The image and logo on the top left of the forum pages appears to be broken. Now instead of the image I see the "Maniac Mansion kids" text in light orange.

Re: Unable to compile daily build in macOS 10.14

I have installed yesterday Mojave on my secondary computer to do some tests, but have not started doing those yet. However I suspect the issue you see is not specific with Mojave. By default SDL configure will enable both the Cocoa and X11 backend on macOS. However (for a while now) XQuartz (the X11...

Re: Bugged aspect ratio scaling in SDL?

You said However this is not going to be perfect due to image being scaled in two passes. Well, I'm not sure about that dude. Right. I just checked that and the code actually behaves better than I remembered. The scaling is done in three passes and not in two passes: First apply the graphics mode s...

Using the Center stretch mode should do what you want. And I just tried it and it works for me. digitall: is it possible that it switches to a different resolution when you go to fullscreen (and thus the graphics card would do some additional stretching))? With OpenGL it should use by default the de...

Oh. Without even looking at the images I know what you mean. This is related to what I explained in this post . When using OpenGL the aspect ratio correction and stretching is done all in one pass, respecting the "Filter graphics" option. But in SDL mode the aspect ratio correction is done first (fo...

To clarify, in my case the cursor does not seem to be slower in one case than the other. It just seems to be more jerky in the SDL case, as if the display was updated less often.
