Quote from: Neil79 on 20:47, 15 November 14Full screen stretch would also be good, I'll bring up that reason why in my review of the C64 lappy
Quote from: TFM on 00:31, 16 November 14Why? With a stretched screen you can't play overscan games or use FutureOS.
QuoteSo far we have done a number of hardware reviews now from products such as the UCassette, to The Future Was 8bit's SD2IEC. Well now we have something incredibly special to show you, a hardware device which is sure to be the next best thing in portable C64 retrogaming. It's the C64P; a C64DTV based laptop that has been sent to us by The Future Was 8bit! (Please note that this is an early press build and any issues are likely to be addressed for full retail )
Quote from: Bryce on 14:10, 16 November 14I also bought a small 12V 5A switchmode PSU to power the laptop. Unfortunately (as usual with switchmode PSUs) it's rather noisy and causes the LCD to give a shit picture. I'll have to add some filtering to see if I can still use it, otherwise I'll have to use a heavy linear PSU.
Quote from: Bryce on 21:40, 16 November 14Simple: LCD panels need 12V unfortunately Otherwise 5V would be fine.@Niel79: Are you talking about 16:9 / 4:3 stretching? My screen is a native 4:3 so this type of stretching isn't an option.Bryce.
Quote from: Bryce on 21:54, 16 November 14I deliberately looked for a 4:3 laptop so that it's correct. No need for 16:9, it doesn't add resolution or any advantages, it's just a warped version of what the programmer intended. Who needs that?Bryce.
Quote from: Neil79 on 22:00, 16 November 14As long as it doesn't have wasted TFT space either side of the game screen such as the C64P did pre zoom, then that's perfectly fine . If the TFT screen is a 4:3 and the game is 4:3 then that's all good
