Do sharpscale's aspect ratio settings conflict with Adrenaline's scaling settings? Should I set them back to 1 for ps1 games if I had it adjusted it to get 4:3?

What is the advantage of Fitted over Original?

I may be crazy and this may not actually have anything to do with this plugin, but there's something about playing SotN without filters in 1080i and 720p . The pixels look sharp and amazing, but the screen scrolling looks bad, like there's tearing or something.

After some experimenting with 480p I think I've found the best compromise I can for making ps1 game look sharp as possible while also filling the screen as much as possible, and also keeping the aspect ratio from changing on variable resolution ps1 games:

Manually set my display to 4:3

Set Vita TV to 480p

Set Shapscale to

Ignteger
4:3
Billinear off (obviously)

I'm guessing to also accomplish this for psp games, I'd just change the aspect settings on my tv and leave everything else the same?

If you have the graphics mode in Adrenaline set to anything besides original, adrenaline will perform GPU scaling to 960x544, so just leave it at original. Fitted is for if you want to watch a video or have a PS1 game fit the whole screen. I've also noticed tearing with bilinear filtering off in a PSP game but not in SotN. Maybe turning it off causes something to go out of sync and that's why without this plugin bilinear filtering is enforced in Pspemu.

fwiw I'm digging how 480p is looking with those settings. Things looks sharp, image is constantly 4:3 and fills the screen no matter the ps1 game resolution. Tested with SotN, Chrono Cross and Vagrant Story.

i'm having issue with Ps Vita TV which is set to 720p while i can notice improvement in Vita games the image quality is really poor & very pixelated in adrenaline,any help would be greatly appreciated as i really want this to work just as well as it does on my Ps Vita console. also i noticed on the PS TV the official settings are missing all the options apart from ( Disc Speed ) but on Vita Console all of the original options are present !!

You can try turning on bilinear filtering, that will make it look less pixelated but more blurry. PSP's framebuffer is very small (480x272) so either it will look pixelated or blurry.

It works identically on both the vita and pstv. If your concern is that things look pixelated without bilinear filtering on the pstv, then it's because the vita's screen has a higher pixel density, so you don't notice it as clearly. In fact bilinear filtering is otherwise not possible to disable on the pstv without this plugin. On the vita there are built-in scaling options for PS1 games so it's not necessary to use this plugin.

Official settings are unrelated.

is the scaling options for PS1 games also available on PS TV ? or just Vita Handheld ?

the reason why i'm asking this is because when i click on other settings in Vita i can change PS1 games to Full screen but on PS TV this option is missing,the only option available is changing disc speed !! any idea why ?

not doing anything special, other than doing a widescreen patch on the game.. you can do this with cheat code or patching the game directly.. check my earlier post, I linked the thread that has the widescreen codes/patches. 720p integer scaling, 16:9 and bilinear off

Can you define what "looks bad" means?

I also ran across the problem of the scrolling not being smooth in SOTN and other 2D games when running with "Original" graphics in 720p.
So I messed around in the Adrenaline code and found a way to make it run better.

This is the change I made:
https://github.com/CruelTott/Adrenaline/commit/3e05688e178b082c8353a38ae382aeb1f15aac62

Maybe it will be useful to some of you.
