Problem to play UT with windows text scaling

Hello all,

first I want to say hello Smiley I'm new in this forum.

Currently I have a problem to play Unreal Tournament (v436) if the text scaling on Windows 10 is activated at 125%. The game runs to laggy/skaky and fast. If I switch the text scaling to 100% the game runs normal like usual. I dunno if there is a better solution for that, because it is getting really annoying to switch always the text scaling setting in Windows if I want to play and it is flipping all my desktop icons around.

I did a video of this isse to explain it better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yy2eAuDFkTU

Info:
Display resolution: 2560x1440
OS: latest Windows 10 Pro (x64)
Card: GeForce GTX 1070
UT Version: 436

Tested with:
- XOpenGL1.0.0.9, OpenGLDrv, D3DDrv.
- Direct Mouse Input on/off

Sit closer to your monitor, obviously!











But really, how strange. Do different renderers like opengl/d3d make any difference? perhaps even the dreaded software mode?! I was not aware that Windows could interfere with a process like this.

I tried already every renderer or other possibilities and it makes no difference, it is always the same result. This issue appears only with Unreal Tournament and Unreal.

That problem appears with many old games. It's possible to disable DPI scaling for particular applications only:
