|Summary||07212: mpc100 and other PAL machines in msx.cpp: Wrong PAL aspect ratio|
Found some footage captured from a PAL Sanyo MPC-100 MSX machine which shows a different aspect ratio to what the emulated PAL MSX 1 and MSX 2 machines display in MAME:
Tested with mpc100 (PAL MSX 1), svi738sp (PAL MSX 1) and mlg3 (PAL MSX2).
|Steps To Reproduce||

-Cassette: Load "phantis" from the software list, set it to "cass 2 (side B)" from the File Manager and type run"cas:
-Disk: Load "phantis" from the software list, type run"phantis2.bas
Enter the 18757 password and press E in the menu to start the game

There's other videos in that channel using other games and MSX models, such as this one (Philips NMS 8250 MSX2):

I don't know how accurate his video capture card is, but yes, PAL has a different aspect ratio than NTSC. This isn't specific to PAL Sanyo MPC-100 MSX.
For 80s/90s consoles(and MSX1 too), Europeans not only suffered the video slowdown due to 50hz, but a flattened aspect ratio as well.

|Yeah, forgot to add "PAL" in the title. Fixed.|

|My point is that this issue isn't "mpc100 and related", nor specific to msx.cpp.|
