When resolution is not specified (neither via POVRAY.INI nor via QUICKRES.INI nor via command line or custom .ini file), random values are displayed for image resolution in the Image Output Options message output. (The actual render will be performed at the default size of 160×120 pixels though.)

This task depends upon

There should be a TryGetInt (assuming this part uses the POVMS C++ interface yet) to get the values when they are displayed. I assume (don't have it at hand) the code currently gets the values in some pre-used variable. Though likely it then would still be based on the POVMS C interface ...

I’ve already examined the responsible code: It just blindly assumes that the respective attributes are there. The fix is trivial, but I don’t think it’s important enough to rush it into the 3.7.0 release.
