Cxbx-Reloaded continues

I wanted to make at least a brief mention of this at the very least.  SoullessSentinel is still working on Cxbx-Reloaded.  It's kind of surprising since I haven't talked to him in quite a while nor have I even kept up on his progress.  So far, it appears to be coming along somewhat.

After looking through the git repository, it looks like someone fixed a handful of things that I was either too lazy to implement properly or just completely forgot about.  One thing he fixed was my implementation of section loading; a proper solution was lacking and I lazily added what was necessary for a few games just to test it.  I looked through that code thinking "man, I sure hope somebody fixed that", and bam, it was there, lol.  They also did a way with alot of the previous FS stuff.  Interesting nonetheless.

Some of these titles I've never seen run before, so I guess that's some good progress in itself.  Best wishes for this branch.
