ofcoz the lossless version should've had a 1:2 ratio Tongue
Just because your PC can't display correct aspect ratio, or is there some more logical explanation?

How should I do the ratio change? With or without scanlines?

I can tell you, that no matter what I do, it will not look exactly like in MSX monitor. Trust me: If you take 512x512 picture and zoom it to fullscreen on PC, then take MSX monitor with same size and put the same picture next to the PC version, you don't have to be expert to see that they don't look same.

Sure the JPG adds artifacts that do not belong to the picture and I'm sorry about that.

How ever I think that as long as there is no intentionally added something like HQ2X or other effect that does not exist in real MSX monitor/TV it is quite impossible to say what kind of the screenshot should be. I took the screenshot from configuration that I use on my emulator. Why I use this configuration is because it reminds me of MSX screen (on my PC) This is why I don't think this is cheating.

Maybe it would be best to take real camera and take real screenshots. This is just quite hard and time consuming compared to using emulator Sad Luckily modern digital cameras are desinged so, that the result looks quite authentic on PC-monitor.
