CoinOps series are based on RetroFE, which has almost everything set by text or XML files. Very easy to change, but lots and lots of config files that control almost everything. Very simple once you understand how it works but confusing to start with

Screen settings are under “settings.conf” and also controllers are under “controls.conf” in the main CoinOPs folder


If you are looking to change the actual screen settings where videos and various other effects are displayed like floating images on game/system screens, these are under the XML file (I use NotePad++ for all text based files now as its edited/viewed as text not XML commands) found in the “layout/worlds” folder in the main CoinOPs folder. You then need to edit and decipher the various commands in the “layout.xml” file. Make a backup BEFORE you start editing this as it can seriously mess things up if you get it wrong

This might help as its from the RetroFE docs, that CoinOPs is based on

This will show you how to alter the video screen size on screen but make a backup of your xml or nut file.
