Resolution[edit]

Native resolution is 640x360,[6] a 16:9 aspect ratio resolution.
Resolutions that have a width equal to that of an integer multiplier of 640 (so 640x, 1280x, 1920x, 2560x, 3840x, etc.) hide the Scaling Mode option since it is irrelevant for those resolutions.[6]

The Scaling Mode setting controls how the internal rendered resolution should be scaled and displayed on-screen.

  • Pixel Perfect results in the image being displayed in the closest integer-ratio multiplier of 640x360 (so 640x360 (1x), 1280x720 (2x), 1920x1080 (3x), 2560x1440 (4x), 3200x1800 (5x) 3840x2160 (6x), etc.)
  • Scale maintains the original aspect ratio and applies anamorphic scaling, resulting in either letterboxing or pillarboxing depending on the width and height of the screen area.
