I am just transfering a tutorial from 2.4x to 2.5x Blender and 
experienced how complicated it is now to have an object look alike in 
BGE and rendering. The object is UV Mapped, 6 textures, draws perfect in 
Multitexture/Face Texture 3D View, renders well (Texture Face Option) 
but has no texture in the BGE and on GLSL Views.

So I have to make 6 Materials, selecting and assigning the right 
materials to the right vertices AGAIN, because I already did that while 
UV Texturing. Pita.

I also find that this is hard to explain to a new user, of course 
somehow also related to the two parallel material systems.

So, I would love to see GLSL and Multitexture using Textface Materials 
in Blender 2.5x, that would help me much in my book ;-)
