Default Widescreen Reicast (Dreamcast)

Greetings all, forgive me for my English hehe, I'm from Spain and I bought a shield, and I'm fascinated with this Android console.
I wonder if there is any chance of putting a fantastic emulator Reicast widescreen.
I tried to put = 1 wide screen but does not do well.
Any idea how to do this?.
Thank you very much.

I don't have much experience with the app but I know that the Dreamcast did not have any native widescreen games. Because of this the only way to get Widescreen to work is by stretching the image which I am assuming the option you enabled done. Sorry, I don't think there is any way around this.

I thought it odd that the Shield does not work, because in the widescreen JXD goes perfectly. Thank you very much for answering.

Sorry for replying late, but I wanted to add more to this thread.

A thread about Nvidia Shield and Reicast Emulator was posted here.

Widescreen works for me, but I had to download the latest compiled beta build here.
Here's how to install .apk files.
If games do not load:

1. Uninstall reicast
2. Download the apk behind the one you downloaded
3. Install it

Updates may break the app, so you have to do this.

Once you get reicast installed
1. Press the 3 Lines on the right
2. Go to the Path Tab
3. Set the paths of your roms and bios.
4. Go to Input Tab
5. Press Select by controller a and press a button on the nvidia shield controller
6. Go to Settings tab and Enable Widescreen mode
7. Go to Browser tab and try a game.

Widescreen mode was not available in the original dreamcast, so it is loading extra data not intended to show, so it may not look correct.

That's all. Reply if you have any trouble
