Any tips as to how? Setting vga_scaler=1 in MiSTer.ini seems to apply to all cores. I mostly use Minimig so I tried to create a "minimig.ini" in the config directory and appeared to have no effect. I tried to create a [minimig] section in MiSTer.ini and that caused the DRAM to hang with stripes. I tried to create a default section in MiSTer.ini and actually I don't remember what that did but it didn't do what I wanted.you can enable scaler only for menu core
So I did try
Just my opinion incidentally but, as nice as a great looking menu is, it is a menu that needs to do a job. As long as it does that job?...
That said, my monitor displays fine at 1280x1024@60, it just goes wrong when I set sync_adjust > 0 (which I do for smooth scrolling) so as far as I'm concerned being able to enable vga_scaler for specific cores is a perfect solution. If the menu doesn't scale perfectly or look spot on it wouldn't bother me as long as it was visible and functional. For me personally the cores are far more important than the menu. just my opinion obviously.
