Multiple resolutions added to OdySim!

It's been 15 days since the last post and i'm still!

I finally had time to test out the multiple resolutions (4:3 and 16:9) code and it works like a charm, but if you have an old PC computer, this new option will not work at all for you as stated on the LÖVE WIKI : "Some very old graphics cards do not support canvases, and will throw an error if you attempt to use them."

On my PC, i have gotten these resolutions: (depends on your video card and monitor)

* 640x480
* 720x480
* 720x576
* 800x600
* 1024x768
* 1152x864
* 1280x720
* 1280x768
* 1280x800
* 1280x960
* 1280x1024

My video card is a Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT and my monitor is a Acer AL1916. After that, i have tested it on my HDTV computer which my TV is a Insignia NS-48D510NA15 and the video card in the computer is a AMD Radeon HD 6450. These are resolution i've gotten:

* all the above resolutions accept for 1152x864, plus those:
* 1152x648
* 1440x900
* 1600x900
* 1680x1050
* 1776x1000
* 1920x1080 (HD...yeah!)

Now, i will do the "bugs" in the coming days and after that, i'll add Mentis Cohorst + Odball plus all my other homebrew games and after that, simulate the accessories (especially the scoreboard).
