testing new OpenBor

It works well in most games I've tried, but some few games have top and bottom black margins. The game Double Dragon Gaiden is seen in a small little picture at first (in the previous version is full screen). Other PAKS I've had, as I said, are full screen.

Some PAKS as  Streets of Rage Z Return of the hero (v2), Streets of Rage Sillent Hill o Streets of Rage 4 Silent Storm Demo V2  continue not work in the new version OpenBor.






this is how you should see this game (full screen). Double Dragon Gaiden

Lo escribo en espa?ol porque mi ingl?s es malo.

acabo de descubrir c?mo cambiar entre formato panor?mico y normal en el OpenBor en la Zero. Es manteniendo pulsados a la vez, los botones  Power + A

eso si, hay juegos que aunque los ensanches, en la intro y men? principal no se ven bien, se ven en un cuadro con un gran m?rgen negro en el lado derecho y un poquito de m?rgen negro abajo. Luego durante el juego si que se ve a pantalla completa, eso si.

pongo dos fotos para que se vea esto claramente:

se ven as? durante el men? del juego y en las intros


pero en el juego se ve a toda pantalla



Hay algunos otros juegos como Double Dragon Advance o Double Dragon Extreme que no hacen nada al apretar Power + A. No cambia el formato de pantalla.

Pongo la lista de los juegos esos que se ven descuadrados:

Voy probando juegos (tengo sobre los 90 PAKS) e ir? a?adiendo a la lista de los juegos que me den problemas.
Los que no ponga en la lista, o no los he probado, o es que se ven correctamente.

Juegos que se me ven descuadrados en la GCW-Zero son:

- Battletoads Double Dragon IV Return Of The Dark Forces --> se ve un gran m?rgen negro abajo durante el juego (aunque hagas lo del "Power + A" no se ve a pantalla completa).

- Double Dragon Gaiden (versi?n en Espa?ol) --> descuadre durante la intro y en el men? principal (se ve en un cuadro y con un gran m?rgen negro en el lado derecho y un poco  abajo),  pero luego durante el juego se ve correctamente (a toda pantalla). La versi?n en ingl?s se ve correctamente todo desde el principio.

lo mismo que el DD Gaiden:

- Dungeons & Dragons Warduke
- Fatal Fury Final
- Mortal Kombat The Chosen One
- Golden Axe Genesis 3.0
- Guardian Heroes Warpath
- Streets of Rage 4 Silent Storm Demo V2 --> la imagen primero sale descuadrada a la derecha, y aunque funciona lo del Power + A, la imagen durante el juego es demasiado grande con personajes gigantes. Est? claro que la imagen no est? bien centrada.

Juegos que no funcionan (cuando est?n cargando en la pantalla Loading vuelven al men? principal de la consola):

- BARE KNUCKLE VACUUM v4.01
- Streets of Rage Z Return of the hero (v2)
- Double Dragon 3
- Double Dragon III The Dragon Stone
- Double Dragon 4 --> despu?s de la elecci?n del personaje, durante la pantalla de Loading vuelve al men? principal de la consola)
- Saint Seiya Death & Rebirth
- TMNT Red Sky Battle

Otros problemas encontrados (funciona el juego pero no aparece en la lista de juegos del OpenBor. Hay un espacio en blanco en su lugar, pero si aparece a la derecha la imagen del t?tulo):

- Bare Knuckle Next Generation
- Streets of Rage Sillent Hill
- Mortal Kombat The Chosen One


edit final: Lo que no me gusta el OpenBor para la Zero es que en la lista de juegos tienes que pasar uno por uno, apretando la cruceta cada vez.
Si dejas pulsado hacia abajo, no funciona. Tampoco con los botones laterales L y R ni ning?n otro bot?n. As? que si tienes que buscar un juego del final de la lista, es un poco lento y pesado. XD

Tampoco funciona el stick anal?gico de la Zero.

Here this new video i uploaded:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JioNmM0RkFM" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JioNmM0RkFM</a>

Sorry to put a little my voice there in the video my father talked to me :( ,anyway as superfenix reported some games doesnt fit well in the tiny screen of the GCW Zero.The only gamepaks in their condition are ok to play it are Mortal Kombat: the chosen one and Fatal Fury Final.Those two games i mention the only downside are the letter fonts are too small its difficult to see in the gcw zero screen but the gameplay its perfect.The rest of the list games have the same problem reported thanks to my friend superfenix,in the final fixes for the openbor i hope we can force all the games pak with panomic mode 16:3 force to fit the screen on the GCW Zero using openbor app.

I'm back, I'm working on improving compatibility. Here's a screenshot from the current build (it's still slow and buggy at the moment but it is playable).

David's back suckers,
He's ready to kick ass and chew bubble gum.
David Knight from NewCastle is back for the quest of Sangraal,
HE'S THE TRUE PATH TO NIRVANA !

I wonder how you even got things to work properly, OpenBOR's source code is such a MESS. (Multi Emulator Super System)
Good luck david

Heman is now rendering and playing correctly with SDL2, not full speed unfortunately but at a playable speed. The black bars are because it is a 16:9 resolution.



I did also try a higher resolution game (Badass Babes 1920x1020 I think), it runs but not at fullscreen.

There's still a nasty bug causing crashing at the menu screen sometimes but otherwise it's taking shape nicely now.

Seeing people wanting things like this makes me wonder why they even ordered a GCW0 with its lowres screen...
Any reasons why you use SDL2 instead of SDL 1.2 ? Don't tell me BoR already dropped support for the later...
Good luck with BoR, can't wait to see it finished.

The latest engine is only using SDL 1 for the Dreamcast, so I either had to modify the Dreamcast code or compile libSDL2_gfx myself and use SDL2. It also allows me to add haptic(rumble) support when the current bugs are ironed out with the next firmware release.
