Comment (by csnover):

 Thanks for your report!

 SCI system scripts run a benchmark at startup of the game engine to detect
 the video performance of the system and adjust visual effects accordingly.
 This benchmarking code does not always accurately detect the performance
 of modern systems and can cause the game to think that the video card is
 too slow to be able to render video at full size.

 I will look more closely at how benchmarking is being handled to see if
 there is any reason to not simply disable it by ignoring writes to the
 backend during benchmarking. In the meantime, once you start the game, you
 can go to the in-game settings and toggle it from “Halfscreen” to
 “Fullscreen”, which will restore rendering of the full sized videos.
