Some of you used retro SNES graphics on your menu, and it doesn't look all stretched..what's the trick to making it look that way?

I just took screenshots from ROM files in SNES9x and didn't resize anything. Just cut and pasted what I wanted to use. The only time I did need to resize anything was if the game was in 512 x 448 resolution instead of the standard 256 x 224. Then it's just a matter of reducing the size of the image by 50%.

Ahh didn't think to take actual shots from roms. I will do that - thanks.

The SNES version of SFFII has 1, 2, and 3 Turbo speed modes. No Akuma but close enough.

Can alternate menu screens (whatever you call them) be done on the NES and Genesis Mega/Everdrives?  Would be nice to have an alternative to their default plain Jane menus :(

I'd be very much interested in this as well but I seem to recall reading that on the NES/Famicom in particular it's not possible because there isn't enough internal memory to generate anything more complicated.

I like it plain and simple but aesthetically pleasing.
Tip: First create in 320x56 only then shrink to 256x56, this will keep the proportion on a 4:3 screen.  ;)
