Could you please implement option to increase internal resolution. Many emulators can increase internal resolution with great results,it would be especially useful in cores which use 3D graphics like PSX core. Even if you are for preserving original experience old low resolution 3D games weren't meant to be played on modern high resolution monitors/screens so they look like blurry mess. Mednafen use only software rendering but fast processors would be able to render graphics at significally higher resolutions especially when overclocked.

    Higher-internal-resolution rendering most likely won't be implemented; the changes necessary for increasing PS1 3D resolution would be invasive and distract from improving emulation accuracy. And that's in addition to the folly of going down the rabbit hole of trying to make PS1 3D look "better"; the low resolution masks many other deficiencies of PS1 3D graphics, the most intractable of which is the low polygon count of models.

    I do have a teensy bit of interest in trying out some ideas I've had for increasing the PS1 internal rendering resolution while resolving the issues it causes, but don't hold your breath(unless you want to fertilize plants).
