Render section

The rendering (drawing) section controls methods that DOSBox uses to improve the speed and quality of the graphics displayed on the screen. E.g. it can "forget" (skip) the every 3rd screen update (which will save time), or it can try to smooth out some of the coarse low-resolution graphics that was used on old displays, but which looks bad when shown on a modern, high-resolation screen.


frameskip = nnn

How many frames DOSBox skips before drawing one.

Default is 0.


aspect = true | false

Do aspect correction.

Default is false.

scaler = normal2x | normal3x | advmame2x | advmame3x | advinterp2x | advinterp3x | tv2x | tv3x | rgb2x | rgb3x | scan2x | scan3x

Scaler used to enlarge/enhance low resolution modes.

normal: nearest-neighbor scaling (big square pixels)
scan: like normal, but with horizontal black lines
tv: like scan, but with darker versions of data instead of black lines
advmame: smooths corners and removes jaggies from diagonal lines
advinterp: identical to advmame
rgb: simulates the phopsphors on a dot trio CRT

Default is normal2x.

Other scalers need added here: none, hq2x, hq3x, 2xsai, super2xsai, supereagle
