FM-TOWNS: Enable aspect ratio correction

Reported by: elvisish Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCUMM
Keywords: fm-townes, scumm, aspect ratio Cc:
Game: Zak McKracken

Description

This was requested 14 years ago but was ultimately rejected: https://sourceforge.net/p/scummvm/feature-requests/266/

The FM Townes games are presented at 320x200 and leaves a 40 pixel black gap at the bottom of the screen. The game looks squashed and doesn't match any other SCUMM game that uses Mode 13h and stretches the pixels 20% taller so the aspect ratio is correct.

It was rejected on the grounds that The original games were intended to be squashed, however as a commented mentioned, the original games were never intended to use HQ or SAI filters.

This feature was implemented and waits for volunteers to test (just play...) in order to send as PR.
See discussion at https://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?p=88663#p88663

TL;DR

git clone https://github.com/ZvikaZ/scummvm
git checkout z_zm_height_200_v7

I'm mainly interested in Loom testing (as it's the most problematic), but reports for bugs (or their absence) for any of the games will be welcomed.
