Well perhaps I'm just an idiot. Yes, I get that it's obviously different code for different methods of displaying things on the screen. Opengl, D3D, etc. have different API's. But what I don't get is why a 'video module' would be doing 'system shortcut capture' at all ? I mean, isn't 'system shortcut capture' a different part of the code than the 'video modules' ?
