Summary 08846: All: Taking a screen snapshot of any game results in a vertically stretched snap.
Description The information window before the game runs, incorrectly reports the video size as: 768 x 224
The games seem to be displayed correctly but saving a screenshot snap from within mame results in a stretched image.
All games within this driver are affected when saving a snap.
Steps To Reproduce Load and run any game that is in the galaxian.cpp driver then take a screen shot using mame's Save Snapshot feature.
View the saved snapshot.

Galaxian 768 x 224 is correct, the starfield horizontal resolution is 3 times denser than the tiles/sprites.

Ah ok, that makes sense.
I uploaded a screen snap that shows what is happening.
Is there a setting that I'm not aware of that will get the correct aspect back to normal?
This stretched look is only happening for games in this driver.

you can use -snapsize to specify a specific resolution, the snapshot will be stretched or shrunk to fit
