How does centering work?

Some demos look ok with centering checked, others go off screen badly so I was wondering what exactly does WinUAE rely on for positioning the image on the screen.

Thanks.

"Not again"

Seriously, it is more or less same as display window (diw) at least in non-AGA modes. Some demos have "infinite" window or simply too large window but as usual, "border" is rarely where you think it is..

Hmmm, let's say I just wanted to know what WinUAE does in these situations you mentioned with infinite or extremely large windows, basically the references it uses for centering the image. Since I don't even know what diw does, guess I'm more or less where I started. I don't want to waste your time, so if it can't be put in a few lines, no problem, it's mere curiosity

Long enough list of demos that do not center or autoscale correctly might help in future..

Guess I sort of never bothered making a list because I didn't know you were open to revising this part of WinUAE's functionality, I mean, isn't it like the native resolution/overscan situation?

Anyways, take some of the scenes from "Terminator 23" (btw this trackmo is arse ) which are horribly off screen, or the much more subtle rotating earth/Annie artwork from "Misery Dentro 2" which are quickly repositioned by a pixel or two when centering is on
