I normally don't post on mailing lists, so excuse any faux-pas from my
side, but this topic got me interested.
Since I am using SDL for small personal projects, I have looked into using
in-game adverts to cover costs too.
Suprisingly, I found no real example to use any kind of Ads in a normal C
or C++ and SDL based program.
So if anyone is willing to create such a thing I'm sure SDL will see a
boost in users, because the avaiability of
making some kind of money using a game or another kind of program with SDL
will surely bring some interested people.
That are my 2 cents for this topic.
