Screen Resolution : Workbench and Game Settings

I'm going round in circles with setting a good resolution for WinUAE workbench use.

For WinUAE duties, Workbench fonts are looking terrible and "blocky". I've tried loads of guides and none are looking decent. I'm expecting (perhaps wrongly) a "big" workbench area, with smaller, sharp icons and text. I know We can't "upscale" but what I can see on my workbench setting is pretty rough.

As for RTG, graphics card stuff, I had absolutely no knowledge of this in my original Amiga days, so I don't know how it is used in Amiga use, the benefits or how to set it up in WinUAE to get some great benefits within the emulation environment.

I've followed some guides, but they skip some key stages (from my point of view)

I use WinUAE for system admin type work on my A1200 and A600 disks and also trying out features that I never had access to in the day and with my current equipment.

Can anyone help with advice?

Install Picasso 96.. I made a video showing it here. For the most part it's all default values during the installer. Although I show this on 3.9 it works perfectly fine on 3.0 and 3.1 as well.

CDTV1991 if you like a modern AMiGA RTG system you can also opt for the op AfA One


If you need a suitable system for the games better opt for ClassicWB
