[snip...] as my jaw pretty much dropped to the floor after looking at the source (not a good thing).
I really think sphere needs a brand new base not just forking the project
And OpenGL+SDL is pretty much identical in functionality to OpenGL+SMFL.
The Sphere source is one of the cleanest and most beautiful sources (that isn't brand new or being backed by something more than just individuals) I have ever seen. It's what I expect to see after over a dozen good programmers work hard on the code over a decade.
