Shader prewarming doesn't actually work on most renderers

Graphics - General


Shader prewarming (currently done in SaveAndLoadHelper.cpp::InitializeEngineGraphics()) doesn't actually do anything on most renderers. This is because it is called before the resolution has been set (even before the display settings dialog is shown), and therefore the renderer does not yet have a backbuffer. Older renderers (D3D11, D3D9, GL) probably have just silently ignored the rendering calls.

Suggested fix is to move prewarming to happen after the first SetResolution call, but is going to need a good bit of QA to make sure it doesn't Break Things.

    won't fix this because this will be improved in future features.
