Samu's problems with attached screenshots:
* Chat too small.
* News: "Manager" cut off, too small
* Statusbar too small.

Possibly scale default sizes of all windows. (unless custom size stored)
This task depends upon

noticed that the screenshots were taken from our 1.5.0-beta1 test server (pompously called server #XX) - actually serves to test beta1 and some of GS's we use (this particular one is based on Aphid's CB gamescript).
Until now, server side, all goes without problems, and hopefully it's not a server setting that causes this. But if anything we can help, BTPro team is available :)

Experimental implementation attached. At quad-zoom everything is so huge now, that it is unusable on a normal 1920x1080 screen. But maybe that is correct :)

The reason why this is so complicated, is that windows need to resize when changing the GUI zoom setting. As such the window must remember the original size restrictions, and need to distinguish them by unit (real pixels, traditional pixels, text lines).

Some places do widget size computation in the constructor. Likely these need to be rewritten to properly use UpdateWidgetSize.

The chat width thingie is a completely different issue. Currently there is a setting "gui.network_chat_box_width" which uses pixels and defaults to 620. Currently I think about replacing this "pixel setting" is a "percentage setting", so that it scales with window size.

Chat, statusbar and some windows have been fixed.

Highscore and end-game are mostly broken.

The smallest-size computations from above patch remain valid.

Station list vehicle-type icons are borked (truncated) :)
