For WinUAE and Amiga display, the physical ratio is different and that's why we have to compensate with KAR 5:4. I stated it all. But mostly I was talking about the screenshots and your talking about them being not the same on a 5:4 monitor under Windows, which is not true.

By the way, Toni, what about the black borders?
My monitor displays all Windows display modes frame to frame, in other words full size. It doesn't matter whether it's 1280x1024 or 1024x768 or even 640x480. Therefore everything on my 1280x1024 5:4 lcd monitor is always stretched compared to my CRT 4:3 monitor. It would be like taking a 4:3 crt monitor and magicaly stretching vertically the crt until it was 5:4. Everything displayed on that monitor would be stretched.
