  I've made also the glsl test. The same problem is here - there is too much
shine all over the game. Not only barrels and weapons, but also faces, dresses,
walls.. It looks like covered by the oil film. There are also some strange
shadow effects - like that the top of the hand is dark and the bottom is bright,
like if the light would come from the ground. And all this is of course much
slower, doing about 8 - 10 fps on 1024x768. 
  But yes, the water is really perfect.
  So we turned glsl off again, it seems that it really still needs some work.
                 With regards, Pavel Troller
