Display resolution

Post by larsen2011 » Sat Nov 11, 2017 2:27 am

Hi there,

I use the 640x480 screen and I think that there is some kind of an issue with the resolution when I look at the menus.

Anybody has an idea on how to improve this?

Thanks in advance
Lars

the theme you've got at the moment is not optimised for a 3.5" screen

check that you've got 640x480 set in the config.txt

if you have, or even if you didnt have (but will have after you've edited it)
you really need to try themes that have been designed to be used with a smaller screen....

the No1 theme to go to is by RxBrad (his theme can be downloaded via retropie setting now)

or you can also consider this (done by me, based off RxBrad theme)

you will notice a big difference.....
