I mean, instead of just 1:1, which only looks big enough
at 320x240 really. I prefer exact pixels. But 1:1 is really
not so convenient.

Another thing is weird resolutions, such as Capcom
fighters (MSH vs SF for example). It's 384x224, which is
a pain for getting exact pixels with proper ratios (these
pixels ain't square). The only mode that can do that
acceptably is 848x480 (on a 4:3 monitor) with 2:2 scale,
which I use in other emulators for Capcom games. It
would be really nice to have that option on Playstation
emulators too.

Thank you.

    I second this, though I would be happy with a "preserve
    aspect ratio" checkbox like the hardware GPU's. But that's
    just MHO. :)

    From a quick browse through the code, it looks like all that
    needs to be done is to copy some of the math from
    NoStretchedBlitEx() into the StretchedBlit2x() and/or
    NoStretchedBlit2x() functions in draw.c, but I may be wrong.
    I may look into providing a patch to implement that if I
    ever find some time to truly sit down and figure out what
    exactly is going on in these functions, but anyone else is
    invited to preempt me... ;)

    Any chance of getting confirmation from one of the
    developers that this is the right path to take? If not,
    where should I look?

    Thanks!
