Steam Release: Game reverts to ASCII title screen upon first launch

When you first launch the steam version it opens on the new title screen, then a window pops up saying "you've launched this version of ADOM for the first time, blah blah blah" and when it does, the title screen reverts to ASCII. After you click "ok", it reverts back again. Very jarring effect.

This problem is known... some "views" don't have a background image, so you can see the ASCII view in background (which is always visible).

I also found the startup screen on first steam start to be extremely confusing, with double popups before an ASCII background. Pure ASCII startup or pure graphic startup looks nice, but mixing them doesn't look great :P

Fixed: cleaned up the game events and moved their trigger to a later position in code. The title screen should now always be visible until the main menu is opened.
