Yes, so they are simply 'emulating' SwapBuffers with the
'wglSwapLayerBuffers' call (as they only request swapping of the main buffer
as shown by the 0x00000001 parameter given to the fuPlane parameter).

Anyway, as seen in the trace you posted, they seem to not use it.

A pity I am not a fan of RTS games :-)

                   + D3D games coming out)
