How to make DeSmuME second screen look better?

Hello,

I was using the X432R fork of DeSmuME, but stopped using due to some small lagging / frameskipping that was bothering me (is there any way to solve it?). I downloaded an official build, however, the second screen looks very badly resized in comparison:

In this case, the text font is the most affected.

Also, I want to move the screen to the bottom, but I can only center it. Can someone help to solve this?

Thanks in advance.

Try more than one set of options before giving up. For instance window size 3x and ratio 1.5 x 0.5 gives a exactly 1x scaled sub screen
you can't move the screen to the bottom.
Yes, this is all sucky.

Thanks for your answer. I tried this, but a ratio 1.5 x 0.5 made the second screen too small for me hmm

Only the integer scale rates of original resolution looks good (x2, x3 etc) especially for text but there is no such option to set different integer rates to both screens for now.
It would be nice to have this.

Some observations in code - this guy is https://github.com/retr0s4ge
He is inactive since 2018.

https://github.com/TASVideos/desmume/co … ee01453e82
Here is screen ratios hardcoded:

MainWindow->checkMenu(IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p2, ((int)(screenSizeRatio*10)==12));
MainWindow->checkMenu(IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p3, ((int)(screenSizeRatio*10)==13));
MainWindow->checkMenu(IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p4, ((int)(screenSizeRatio*10)==14));

corresponding part of menu is:

MENUITEM "1.2 : 0.8",                   IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p2
MENUITEM "1.3 : 0.7",                   IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p3
MENUITEM "1.4 : 0.6",                   IDC_SCR_RATIO_1p4

The ratio where the bottom (right in horizontal layout) screen is half size of the top one is 2*2/3=1.33333.. because 2=1.333+(1.333/2) but set this value manually in ini file isnt working.
