The King of Fighters '98 UM and 2002 UM pixel perfect option and integer scaling in the graphics settings

Post by retroroms »

Would this be possible? I'm thankful that scanlines were added to both games as it's made a huge difference in the looks department. The last thing I would love to see is a pixel perfect option (1:1 PAR) and Integer Scaling as it would make both games look so much better. I understand the game wouldn't run at full screen with this option but I'd happily make that trade off.

I've uploaded a comparison of The King of Fighters '98 (vanilla) running on RetroArch with the Aspect Ratio set to 1:1 PAR and Integer Scale to ON compared to Ultimate Match on Steam with Scanlines set to 50%.

KOF98UMFE already offers integer scaling options in windowed mode via the Graphic Settings, though it targets 640x448 and multiples of that as the screen layout was altered in UMFE for 448-high resolution. You would need to turn off the border art to get the 640 width. With border art it is 796x448, but that is still 1:1.

Would it be possible to provide an option to enable integer scaling for both games when in full screen mode?

Edit: Ignore the post above, don't know if that even makes any sense. Thanks for the response.

You know, after playing The Disney Afternoon Collection, it helped me realize what I'm asking for. Right now, the screen size when having full screen enabled defaults to full, can we get an option (when in full screen) to set the screen size to original rather than being forced to use windowed mode to play in the original aspect ratio?
