Hi @DominusExult, thanks for the report.

I just tried with HQ3x and SuperEagle on the latest code and they both worked ok me.
Could you send more details on which settings you were trying?

Figured it out. my fault for not using lockstock settings.

The problem only occurs when you set width/height in the Ultima 8 section of the ScummVM settings file.
I experimented with this when I tried to figure out why the bigger view is not working (actually scalex/scaley but that's in another bug report). As you can just enlarge the ScummVM window and retain scaling, you might want to close this as "won't fix" or get rid of reading these settings (width/height).

Thanks for checking. I probably should remove support for those settings as they just cause unexpected behaviour. I'll leave this open to do that, but it's less urgent than it not working at all at least :)
