I have some questions for the Moderators/Admins about Intellivision longplays. ScHlAuChi messaged me complaining about the resolutions of the longplays, stating that they had "bad scaling artifacts" and was in the "wrong resolution". I have two questions:
1. What's the correct resolution for Intellivision longplays?
2. There are some games that have borders on them, like Pinball, for instance. Here's a link to a picture for an example:
Some games like Q*Bert have a small part of screen cut off.
Should I crop it or leave it as is? I've recently cropped some games in order to comply with the no-borders rule. Since there is no discussion of Intellivision until now, I've recorded the games via 640x480. Any feedback would help. Thanks!
I haven't looked at them all but I guess results will all be much better than previous submissions.
Results are pretty similar to mine. Taking bizhawks output of 176x208, then cropping 8 pixels from all sides and only doubling horizontally I get to 320x192. Any further cropping will be game dependent. Then a final doubling to 640x384 for a more watchable video.
What the admins say now? Are the Intelli longplays good to be uploaded?
ScHlAuChi told me after showing him the screenshot above that it looks much better than the previous videos. We need MadMatty's word on this though.
Also a bit offtopic, but some of Digger's MSX longplays are using a wrong resolution as well. Since those are MSX1 games, they should be at 512x384 after cropping and rescaling (512x416 for MSX2 games).

You need to do this process for Intellivision stuff to display properly:
Using VirtualDub, crop the AVI 8 lines in each border (9 for the right one), then resize to 318x192 with Nearest Neighbor algorithm and if necessary, a second crop at the left side. Rescaling to double size is required. This should be the final result (right click on the image):

I was also told about the wrong resolution issue via Discord. I eventually found some pixel-perfect screenshots of Intellivision games at 320x200 after a further investigation.
