Re: [hatari-devel] New SYNC release - new comment on emulation :)

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

* No borders (many demos, some games and utilities might require this to be on)
* Atari SC1224 and SM124 border size
* Maximum size borders (extreme demos and for developers)

Something like that? And maybe an indication to show when an "event" happens outside of currently displayed borders. For that purpose we can ignore simple border color shifts and only care about graphics when in the "no border" case.

Hmm, we've had this in the past already, but it has been removed in
commit 460b4572ab6b7d37c8e952b99c9916acc31c3d17 ... IIRC we considered
that this was too complicated for most users, so we switched to
something more userfriendly instead. Not sure whether it's such a good
idea to re-introduce these settings...?
