KQ4 Ultimate Installer & DOSBox Capture.

Is the game being a ROYAL pain? Need a hint? Got a problem? This is the place to discuss King's Quest!

KQ4 Ultimate Installer & DOSBox Capture.

Post by Tawmis » Mon Jan 02, 2017 5:37 pm

So I have the KQ4 Ultimate Installer being used - and capturing the game as I play.

I noticed the DOSBox videos are 320x200 even though the DOSBox config file has the resolution as 800x600

windowresolution= 800x600

Is it because the DOSBox is forcing it to 800x600, but the actual game is still "actually" 320x200?

yes. DOSBox captures at the resolution that game itself uses.

Okay. That's what I figured was happening. Shame these games weren't made at higher resolutions. Makes for making HD versions pretty impossible. :lol:

You can upscale and do aspect correction in your video editing program.

I tinkered with it... and even at 100% quality, it pixelates... So I will just leave it at 320x200 and save the video at that size.
