Yes, you're right. The old skins delivered with Emu48 are getting too small on modern displays. Most of these one are created around the LCD Zoom 2 size.
I recently bought a 24'' monitor and the only satisfied resolution was the natural one of 1920x1080. And and this resolution the Zoom 2 size skins are still readable, but I agree, they should be larger. But the only way to get larger ones, is to write them. Best IMHO will be a skin based on the LCD Zoom 3 setting.
I don't know any realistic skins at the moment, which base on LCD Zoom 3 setting. Non realistic skins can be grabbed from the Emu48 Pocket PC project. Most of the skins for VGA or WVGA resolution are Zoom 3 ones.
Example for HP48SX and HP48GX:
Example for HP49G:
Writing new KML scripts is a highly time consumptive job. I recently rewrote a realistic Zoom 2 to a Zoom 3 skin of a Saturn based calculator, it took me about 2-3 hours.
