Naomi on Vewlix (4:3 aspect ratio)

Has anyone got a Naomi running in their Vewlix? How are you getting 4:3 aspect ratio? :think:

Doesn't look like you can change the aspect ratio on the monitor.

On the F there's a setting for wide (16:9) and normal (4:3) and even 1:1 (which displays a small 640x480 window in the center of the screen).

You had a Diamond, yes?

Thanks Nem. Yes, I have a Diamond black, but I can't find this setting.

Doesn't seem to be one unless there's an extended menu. Pretty crappy if so.

Strangely enough I was trying out MVS in my Noir this morning via Invizm’s Jammafier, the Noir has a 4:3 option on the monitor settings.

I get a picture but am going to try later with an OSSC, maybe a bit sharper and just to see what it plays like.

Yeah, I've never heard of any monitor / cab that doesn't have 4:3. Well, until now.

Doesn’t an upscaler like OSSC do away with the 4:3 option anyway? I will find out later when I can find a VGA cable :wtf:

I emailed Taito.

@Jan, you're our resident Diamond geezer. Have you ever tried setting these to 4:3 aspect?

I have not found any 4:3 settings on a DIA black.
