Description

Similar to what happens with the html5 client: we can use this to show progress, from initialization, testing opengl, opening the network connection, authenticating, etc..
Then the window can be faded out.

Status: newassigned
Summary: use opengl probe as splash screenadd splash screen

The opengl probe should still be done in a different subprocess so that we can handle crashes gracefully.

We can keep the splash screen running until we get the "first-ui-event" (ie: first window shown on screen), or just until we are connected.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
