18.03.16 screen resolution problem.



  • After updating, when I quit a low resolution game, ES resolution stays the same. And most of the screen/menu parts are out of visible area.

    Here are the things I tried so far;

    1. Reinstall
    2. Change video mode to auto
    3. Try to hold my self to throw my newly maid bartop arcade cabin from the window

    None seems to work. And dear developers , I appreciate your work and words cant be enough to explain my appreciation. But it is very very and some more very important to keep old velease files. Atlease 1 version prior.

    Regards,

    @alpermis thanks four your feedback and your support archive. I'm sure @Substring will take a look as soon as possible.



  • @alpermis beside what I've told you, you have a common thing with the other guy having the very same problem : your monitor just has DMT modes. That's a good lead

    The log shows

    [       44.50] configgen/videoMode.py(isSupported:68): The resolution for 'CEA 4 HDMI' is not supported by your monitor
    [       44.53] configgen/videoMode.py(autoMode:115): auto mode -> CEA 4 HDMI not supported, fallback to default
    

    @barto28 has the very same problem, but switching to auto mostly resolved the problem but for N64.



  • @substring Exactly true. All but N64.



  • @alpermis Can you stay on auto mode, launch a N64 game, quit, and make a new support archive please ?



  • @alpermis hoh and remove system.es.videomode=auto it's buggy, but will be fixed



  • I changed system.es.videomode=auto -> system.es.videomode=CEA 4 HDMI (as you asked)
    Started a N64 game then I quit the game. Screen resolution turned bad. And here is the archive ;

  • Another thing might help; I use hdmi to dvi cable. So monitor is in dvi mode.



  • @alpermis ok, try this fix by running SSH commands:

    mount -o remount, rw /
    rm /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.pyc
    wget -O /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.py https://gitlab.com/recalbox/recalbox-configgen/raw/0769d875ca343ddffd19721e96595e92511470f2/configgen/utils/videoMode.py
    

    No need to reboot, just start games from ES including N64
    tell me if it fixed your problem

  • The same.

    mount -o remount, rw /

    rm /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.pyc

    wget -O /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.py https://gitlab.com/recalbox/recalbox-configgen/raw/0769d875ca343ddffd19721e96595e92511470f2/configgen/utils/videoMode.py

  • @alpermis ok, investigating



  • @alpermis new fix :

    mount -o remount, rw /
    rm /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.pyc
    wget -O /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/utils/videoMode.py https://gitlab.com/recalbox/recalbox-configgen/raw/0bc27e90248812a62f80de94810434acbf7ac418/configgen/utils/videoMode.py
    

    the rm could fail, not a problem



  • It seems fixed :) Thank you very much.
    I noticed couple of other issues. Im gonna try to be sure about those and open other threds.



  • @alpermis great thank you for participating in the debugging :)



  • nickel chrome plus de probleme avec la n64 , merci



  • Wow thank you. This issue has been resolved. It originated in dreamcast and n64.



  • @rizzie happened with systems having a forced resolution



  • @substring said in 18.03.16 screen resolution problem.:

    The log shows

    [       44.50] configgen/videoMode.py(isSupported:68): The resolution for 'CEA 4 HDMI' is not supported by your monitor
    [       44.53] configgen/videoMode.py(autoMode:115): auto mode -> CEA 4 HDMI not supported, fallback to default
    

    @barto28 has the very same problem, but switching to auto mostly resolved the problem but for N64.

    I just wonder where's the path of that log file please? I'd like to see what's going on, on my Recalbox. Thanks.
