unfortunately I am unable to even find the 0.25 source (or some of those 
older versions), and even if I found it, someone else would have to be 
willing to do the work (I lack knowledge and time to do something like 

Regarding the current quake2max source: There isn't even a changelog in 
there and searching through the entire source archive I only get very 
few results for "gl_scale" OR "gl_scal*" OR something like that (it's
