MiSTer.ini setting to rotate OSD

Post by lupin3rd »

I found a feature request post from last year at:

https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/issues/59

It says you can set it in the config file, but I can't find any mention in the documentation for what the setting actually is? Can someone tell me how to turn this feature on? Assuming that it is still available, that is. Many thanks!

Okay, I found it in the cfg.cpp file... looks like it's in the format of:

Code: Select all

osd_rotate=#
Where # = 0, 1, or 2. Guess I can brute force what these mean from here.

Sorry, the place to modify the setting is actually in the MiSTer.ini file. When I was looking through the source code on github, cfg.cpp is what tipped me off to the configuration setting name.

Ok thanks - that setting isn't defined by default

Its worked for the OSD - so thanks!

Now is there a way to to get all the games (both Horizontal and Verital) to play on the Vertical? I understand you would lose on the aspect ration, but would be a nice add.

Thanks again

no.
Rotation is very resource hungry option and thus it's exclusive to arcades. MiSTer normal screen orientation is horizontal. I've made some convenience for vertical arcade cabinets like OS rotation, but it's for those who want to make a set of vertical arcades in such cabinet. But there won't be updates to play ANY core in vertical screen.
