hmm, you should have been able to reset it with /nui hud scale without a value. I have noticed however that /nui hud scale 1.0 doesn't scale exactly right either so I usually use the non value one which usually works.

But then again I haven't tried to use it for since 3.1 came out and maybe not much before then.

Ah... the problem there then was that you actually broke the slash command engine. That happens sometimes when you enter insane values. I just stopped processing that command all together is why. I've seen that happen, but yet to find a fix.

Sounds like a safety net to me. A common security hole is for people to try entering incredibly bad values for commands to get something to crash or maybe give them administrative access.

Sounds to me like Blizzard may have set up WoW's lua engine to disable something if someone is trying to do things that cause some sort of out of bounds error.

Not saying that's what is happening, but makes you wonder.

I'm pretty sure there is something like that. One day using the default UI, I was changing the scale. The options menu has a certain range but the slash command lets you put anything. Just for fun I put in a huge value. Well, it worked but afterwords the command would not work to make it normal size again. I think I had to edit one of the files in WTF to make it normal again.
