Don't think it's really possible. 

A lot of moves would be removed from the video. The first example that come to mind is when you jump on the head of the dino (level 1). By cropping to 1920, the head totally disappear.

what a pity..i hate 4/3  and so never play this game unfortunately..thanks a lot equally

Bur you know a lot of great classics are 4/3. How do you play them ? With overlay ?

forgive m,e but on a full hd or 4k screen it is anacronistic to play a 4/3 game i love instead yours masterpieces as CLIFFHANGER and  FIRE AND ICE

No problem, but there are many games which don't let you many choices. 

For example iof you want to play Galaga, there's no 16/9.

That said i mùade something special for you (and people allergic to 4/3), it's a kind of compromise with a bezel.

In order to explain better why i don't like "fake" 16/9 here is an example:

 

crop.jpg

 

I really took random images, but it could be worse (as i said it could remove a head or an important part of the action).

By cropping you've got 16/9 right, but also remove parts drawn by the artist and this is something i don't like. Worse: sometimes you remove the exact reason why you ask the player to go "up" (because the branch is not there anymore).

For me the 16/9 version of DL is an heresy because it was never drawn this way.

 

So, i like 16/9 and use it when i can (Mononoke for example was made this way and i reversed Cliff from 4/3 to 16/9 because the original movie was 16/9), but some games are old (most of them actually) and where not made in 16/9. You can't  play NES or Genesis in 16/9.

That's why i propose you this bezel solution, check the first post. Hope you like it.

you are amazing and kind with your work but i prefer to hope for a future 16/9 version of all all games.including TIME GAL

Hi! I'm modifing Crime Patrol to prepare it as Argon will need to add rawinput, I already done for Action Max, that although it didn't support 2 simultaeous players, the code was smaller and easier to me for testing.

I want to use this input in controls.cfg:

Yes you can add a SWITCH_BUTTON4 of course, but it's just a value there. It doesn't mean the program will know what to do with it.

yes thanks, but I I suppose these values in globals.singe links to controls.cfg in some way, true?

The question is how? is it defined somewhere?

Anyway, I got it

When singe22 running a game i have stuttering sound, what can i do to resolve this problem?

 

Several users had this problem and solved it by changing the sound driver (Realtek).

@KarisJust noticed you've uploaded the Mononoke game! I've downloaded it but it is missing several folders (cfg, script, sounds, fonts, etc). This makes Singe not recognising the game when I open the menu. Can you please check?

 

Either way, great job!

Hi, there are several links in my post.

Some of the links of Mononoke (480p and 4/3) does not include all the singe files. In all cases, even if you need only those versions, you must download the link which is right under the game box and then add 4/3 or 480p.

Maybe I'm missing something... I only see one link for Mononoke and when I open it, it goes to this MEGA page.

 

Where are the other Mononoke links?

You are right, this link was not the good one. Try this one (edited the first post).

Karis is it possible to make a 2 player simultaneous anime fighting(ex.street fighter 2 the animated movie) ? it will be good.

Basically you can command a movie, but i can't see how 2 players could do so simultaneously, because you can read only one sequence at a time.

Nope, xbox one...it's weird because it works in the menu, I can select a game with the joystick and launch it by pressing the X button (maybe all 4 buttons work, not sure) but In game it doesn't work anymore. Can't start the game with the start button for instance...thank you anyway !

That's weird, but normally X is not for starting game, IMHO the order of the buttons is not eh same on the One. So 2 solutions :

 

1) You try to assign the keys differently in controls.cfg (it's really easy to edit).

2) You can use JoyToKey. Personnally i do this on my arcade, because my arcade sticks are not Xinput. So i removed the whole mention to gamepad in controls.cfg (only keys) and mapped the keys in JoyToKey. Works very well.

To use the bezels you have to run it in window mode without the FULLSCREEN_WINDOWS option, if you set a 16:9 resolution like 1920x1080 the game will still be displayed in 4:3 with the black bands but now the bezel will overlap.
I use this mode, all batch files with the PClauncher module and they work great.
