[PTR,7.1] CVAR for useUiScale and uiScale reset after /reload or exit

Adjustments to the ui scale are not saved properly and reset if you do a /reload.

uiScale and useUiScale are absent from the WTF/config.wtf after you /reload or exit the game.

They will however be saved in the config.wtf if you only exit to character screen. If I check the config.wtf at that point the correct values are in the config.wtf. But those values are removed on exit/reload/login.

p.s. I repaired the PTR installation twice. I ran no addons. I reseted all settings to default multiple times. Bug is consistent. Other interface options will be saved properly. (like window size, combat text settings etc.)

Not sure if root of the issue but this is from the cvarlist diff from live to ptr.
https://github.com/zorker/rothui/com...821387878db624

Those stand out:

+uiScale;1;
+uiScaleMultiplier;-1;
+useUiScale;0;


What is the uiscalemultiplier?

CVar "uiScaleMultiplier" is "-1"
A multiplier for the default UI scale. -1=determine based on system/monitor DPI, 0.5-2.0=multiplier to use when calculating UI scale. Only applied when useUIScale is 0.
You can use console to get info on cvars, just enter name w/o any values an hit enter It doesn't always work though...

Thanks. Seems like they test that setting on the PTR atm?! I tried changing it but it resets after /reload.
