    • Swap Joystick Ports: Needed depending on which port a specific game uses
  • Video Options
    • Crop Normal Border: When Border Mode is set to "Normal", try to crop as much of the border area as possible with affecting the aspect ratio, doesn't affect video timings

    • SID Engine: Set SID chip emulation mode, FastSID or ReSID (sounds better and uses more CPU power)
