There's supposed to be an archimedes version, but my knowledge of archimedes is nil.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, because it's really cool to see some of these 80's titles that were off the beaten path. But please let me to reiterate my request that you use -snapsize with an integer multiple of the system's native resolution, rather than just stretching everything to 640x480 in The GIMP.

These latest screenshots are particularly "off": You didn't use nearest-neighbor resizing for the Electron screens, so they appear blurry. For the BBC Micro, Amstrad CPC, and C64 screens, you used nearest-neighbor resizing, but you did not take the screenshots using MAME's built-in screenshot command (F12, in case you didn't know), so they contain an irregular hodge-podge of rows and columns of pixels that are either still 1 pixel wide, stretched to 2 pixels wide, or are even 3 pixels wide, depending on the system.

Honestly, I vastly prefer this to raw F12 output that's often at the wrong aspect ratio. -snapsize 640x480 would be even better, of course.

sorry, I was just using mame's F12 screenshot with -snapsize 640x480 and -nosnapbilinear.

I think I did forget to specify -nosnapbilinear on the electron screenshot. I've gotten used to noninteger pixel sizing with mame since that's what I see most of the time with my LCD monitor.


For comparison on the electron screenshot:

not specifying snapsize (comes out as 640x256)

-snapsize 640x480 (with bilinear)

[Linked Image]

-snapsize 640x480 -nosnapbilinear

[Linked Image]

knowing that the output resolution is 640x256 and using an even multiple for -snapsize 640x512

-snapsize 640x512 -nosnapbilinear
