This time aspect ratio correction and GDI video driver have been fixed for “non-power-of-two” resolutions like the infamous 1366×768 on some laptops.

Aspect ratio recalculation adjusts for mismatch between game resolution and maximum display resolution.  For example, 640×480 (4:3) on a 1920×1080 (16:9) display.  The max is usually native resolution on a laptop.

The power-of-two issue is a quirk of direct screen blitting in windows, the GDI driver.  Display resolutions that are not divisible by 4 will normally shear.  This update hacks that by padding the blit image to overcome the restriction.
