On a stonkingly powerful laptop with latest Win10 1709. The issue is not with WinUAE per se, but with changing the desktop resolution. If you switch to a lower res, then any open windows will automatically resize to fit - and if your windows are larger than the requested res, they'll shrink.

It's happened since Win98SE so not a new phenomenon.

What should ideally happen is that fullscreen should be entered by simply maximising the application's display and hiding the taskbar - there is API to do this in one call. Then use display hardware (where possible) to scale the display up to the desktop resolution, centering if necessary to keep aspect ratio.

There are drawbacks to this - banding and artifacts due to filtering (or no filtering!) when scaling to match the desktop. Your usage of the custom resolution is a noble idea - it means that one pixel onscreen is one pixel on the Amiga's display - perfect, but for modern LCDs using questionable scaling themselves to fit the new display on the panel.

Doing it in WinUAE means that you can apply a shader to minimise artifacts - scaling up to the nearest integer multiplier, then using bilinear to scale the rest of the way, which makes things look much nicer.

But it would never be quite as good as a proper custom res on a CRT display.

I am just posting on here Damien to let you know that I am bloody loving this collection. I was heavily involved in Skyrim, but now Lemmings is taking up all my time.

Kudos my friend, what a great piece of work.

No major issues here on Windows 10, the only thing I am struggling with a little is that my analogue controller seems a little sensitive on some of the games, but I am sure that I just need to have a play with a few settings )

-Actually one question.....I cant see the screenshots/box art on my config. Am i missing something obvious?

Are you saying that you don't see title / screenshots for any games? Try running the "WinUAE.reg" file again.

Or are you saying you've added in your own games but there's no title / screenshots? If so, see here as you need to take them yourself.

I didn't see the screenshots. I did run the reg file again though and it fixed it like a charm! Thanks again
