Version of OpenTTD

Since e558aa8 / 6dfe5c8

Expected result

Clicking "Normal Screenshot" does not show a "Huge screenshot" dialog, at any zoom level.

Actual result

Clicking "Normal Screenshot" may show a "Huge screenshot" dialog at higher zoom levels, where the reported dimensions are the same as in the "Default zoom screenshot" case.
The actual size of the output screenshot does not match the large values reported in the "Huge screenshot" dialog, nor is the screenshot rendered at that resolution at any point.

Steps to reproduce

Zoom fully out.
Select "Normal screenshot" from the screenshot window.
Observe the "Huge Screenshot" dialog.
Select "Yes".
Observe the output screenshot file.

I'll have a look at it on the weekend if no one else gets around to it

Could a very large monitor / display (as in a resolution of 12K, 11520 x 6480, or 6480p) still cause the huge screenshot dialog to pop up when taking a regular screenshot in full-screen? If that is the case, then the huge screenshot threshold will have to be eventually raised (currently at 8192p square = 67 million pixels) once 12K and 16K become the norm for high-end displays and monitors (i.e. several decades from now).

It could, yeah. I guess it depends what the purpose of the dialog is. It might be just to warn the user that "this file will be a big one, don't be surprised if it takes a little time" rather than "this screenshot will be bigger than your monitor".

Either way, it's grand for now
