Description

Game Name?
All games

Game ID?
All games

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Unique aspect ratios are ignored causing games to appear mildly distorted.

What did you expect to happen instead?
The correct aspect ratio to be displayed.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
[Don't assume we have ever played the game and know any level names. Be as
specific as possible.]

  1. Open Dolphin
  2. Open any game
  3. See that what should be a perfect circle isn't.

Dolphin 3.5 and 3.5-367 are old versions of Dolphin that have
known issues and bugs, so don't report issues about them and test the
latest Dolphin version first.
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?
All

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
No.

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
Irrelevant

Is there any other relevant information?

Doesn't the "auto adjust window size" already show the correct resolution and aspect ratio?

(in windowed mode at least?)

These are screenshots when using "auto adjust window size"

You can see that the shield that should be a circle is NOT a circle. You can also see that the game is displayed at a 4:3 aspect ratio which is incorrect. Melee has a 73:60 aspect ratio.

You can see in this album that all games have their own aspect ratio that is mostly never 4:3 which Dolphin assumes: http://imgur.com/a/NpCGw

To be even more precise, there would have to be extensive testing on making sure the display of the elements in-game at an aspect ratio matches the dumped texture (aka making sure circles are circles like I did for Melee).
