Bug smashing and feature creep!

I'm deep into bug fixing mode right now. I don't have many and most of them are small but it's still nice to crush them.

One bug that I got around to today was more of a feature request. In the past if I couldn't successfully create an audio device my engine would handle it by popping up an error dialog for the user and then shut down. I realized that a lot of games can still be played without sound, unlike not being able to have input, or graphics, etc. so I now just mute all audio and the game goes on like normal. It means still being able to play if your sound card goes on the fritz. I also updated the ingame UI to properly handle that situation.

Under 10 more bugs to go!
