Aspect ratio enum changes can cause existing configs/overrides to break #7536
Regarding this commit: 8a63ace
by adding a new aspect ratio index to the middle of the enum, existing configs that included aspect_ratio_index of anything after the new addition are broken - ie, they point to the wrong aspect ratio.
this is a problem for general users, and also retroarch's own documentation. eg
and for me personally, my scripts for retropie: https://github.com/dankcushions/crt-pi-configs
if you want to be really smart, you could interpret this string as an aspect ratio dynamically in the code, although i would guess you would still need an enum to generate the options for the GUI.
this will still break existing configs, but at least it will only break them ONCE, rather than every time we add a new aspect ratio.
