Instead of writing to a video device (a set_video_mode surface) we should write to a silent surface so we don't have a lot of pop ups. Also we should not have outputs saying amount complete.
Value: 1. remember SDL_VIDEODRIVER
2. setenv SDL_VIDEODRIVER to "dummy"
4. set back to origin value (if it was set)
On windows: change forcing the directx/windib driver.
This dummy driver doesnt support everything, window resizing is not supported as it seems.
