Summary0000285: Menus are in the wrong aspect ratio.
DescriptionGZDoom stretches its graphics vertically by 20% to reproduce the non-square pixels of vanilla Doom. However, this scaling doesn't appear to happen in the menus, making the menu graphics appear squished.

This is irrespective of the screen's aspect ratio, as I tested this on both 4:3 and 16:9 resolutions.
Steps To ReproducePress ESC.
Additional InformationAttached are two screenshots - the first is of the most current devbuild (gzdoom-g2.4pre-530-g59db1a8) displaying the menu with incorrect aspect ratio. The second is of prboom-plus demonstrating a menu with more accurate scaling.

This is by design to allow clean pixel scaling. Stretching by a factor of 1.2 that doesn't look bad requires screen scaling factors that are a lot higher than the currently available 4 or 5.
