:) Yes, right model loading stopped working .. well I didn't change
anything, so there is a problem is a problem with Mesa/OpenGL

I simply couldn't find the time to debug the problem, I don't know the

well a problem with the library Mark used for object loading,
so actually we should use another library, that supports more formats,
and sort of redo the whole thing.

it supports a few Quicktime codecs, and depends on quicktime4linux.
