but you miss my point: it is meant as a satire / skit!
i know that annoying collection of all kinds of "nvidia, blink, mp3,
lith engine bla" trailers a gamer must klick away. and i do not want to
annoy any gamer with that.
but i want to show that i am PROUD of using opensource, cross-platform
libraries! so, for example, i'm always blending in an OpenGL - Logo in a
non-obstrusive place. i also would like play once something like
"OpenAL: true surround" or whatever WHILE the game is loading and
starting up anyway. so no delays, no additional keypresses for the
gamer, just let them know that we are "the good guys"...
