Well, the actual Main stack _contains_ the engine, and is, therefore, the
Richard has proposed putting an error dialog in it, in case the platform
lacks enough memory it will hopefully quit with the dialog so the user isn't
totally mystified what happened, and use a separate (removeable, if you
like) splash substack window, UI substacks, data substacks, etc. for the
main program elements.
Don't forget to include libraries or plugins you want to use in your apps.
Is that what you mean by "Player"?
