Neo Geo CD games are horizontally squashed
« on: May 16, 2013, 10:02:11 AM »
I notice that Neo Geo CD games are squashed horizontally, resulting in roughly a 30 pixel black border on both left and right sides. I've compared Metal Slug, the MVS and CD versions and can confirm this border is because FBA is squashing the image slightly.

Anyone know why, or more to the point how to resolve?

See the two attached images to understand what I mean.

There are two different horizontal settings for arcade mvs - 320x240 304x240.  Metal slug uses the latter, obviously.
With the neocd, there's no way to switch between them without somewhat of a hack, so we default to 320 so that it doesn't cut off any of the edges. I may look into adding some sort of switch or setting to see if I can do it.
With the different resolution, it stretches differently.
Normally the cropping is handled by overscan on the monitor.
