Differences of the different graphics filters in ScummVM

Sstandard the filter "2x" is switched on. It increases the original resolution of the respective game by the factor "2" (320*200 -> 640*400). Each filter works a bit differently.

Here is a list of all filters:

Ain addition there is the possibility to set "Aspect Ratio". Here the resolution is extrapolated from 320*200 to 320*240. This makes the graphic a little "slimmer".
Here is an example:

Original graphic
HQ 3* 960*720
