Thanks.  What's it look like with Super Mario 64?  What are your video resolution and scaling settings?

Strangely, those bars on the top and bottom are actually transparent.  I don't think I've seen that behaviour before.

@snapuswip3 - I think we are talking about two different issues.  Before, if you were playing Mario on some devices (including xperia play) with the Rice plugin, there would be a lot of "junk" in margins (where the black bars are in your screenshot).  As you see, that is now fixed.

Your first screenshot is probably a ROM-specific bug.  Which game is that?  I have an xperia play running stock firmware.  I'll see if I can reproduce the issue.

@paul - The thin black bars at the top and bottom are part of the Mario ROM.  Those bars are actually in the rendering context, but are specifically rendered black.  I think Gilles made a custom setting to remove them in gles2n64, which effectively stretches in the vertical direction a little bit.

Yeh, I always figured it was miscalculating the screen height to the value it would be with the titlebar/ actionbar visible.  Never noticed the transparency in a screenshot before.

Oh now I see what you mean by transparency.  Didn't notice on my other computer's monitor.  Alpha is 1.0 on the top and bottom, allowing you to see the website background behind it.  Must be something in the way Android captures screenshots I guess (?).  I don't think there's an issue with Mupen in that regard.  I also don't think there's an issue with Mupen's screen calcs, I think the Mario ROM was designed with letterboxing.  The easiest way to tell would be to find a circle or square in Mario's GUI and see if it's stretched in gles2n64 vs. the other plugins.

Edit: Actually gles2n64 does it correctly.  Mario's life-meter is a little squashed in rice and glide, and a circle in gles2n64.  Strange that the upstream devs never fixed it... the fix probably needs to go into a conf file.

I was wondering how you could  get paper mario to work properly on the mupen 64 app...

I'm the German translator who (re-/)translated 152 out of 276 original strings.
Again I overhauled the whole translation and translated new strings. I did 92 menu strings again, and 21 Market strings. German is at 100% again.

It seems like user Wandschrank is either a troll or does not master the German language. He fucks up perfectly translated strings or translates new ones very bad. I think we should block him from translating. Whereas the user ecsv does a relatively well job.

The latter is less worrisome to me than the former.  My main concern would be that if he translates something inaccurately, that he doesn't allow anyone to fix the problem.  Is that happening in this case?  Also, how often has he re-translated something that is already accurately translated? (just wondering the scope of the issue.. since I don't know German myself, I am relying only on what you say)
