upgrade morph gadget to support persistent unitIDs

For any AI the unitID of one unit no matter how many times it morhps should stay the same. It is huge overhead for any AI creator.

How to join to dev-rooms

Put "AI: Craig" into list of default AIs available for playing s44

  • name of the AI C.R.A.I.G.
  • it is lua AI, so add it into the launch script same way as you do with NOE AI
  • it is AI only for s44
  • it should be possible to add the AI in dev-skirmish ([EPIC] Dev launcher)
  • it should be possible to add the AI in multiplayer bettleroom
  • fast singleplayer is NOT neeed

Icons for SinglePlayer

We have new icons replacing the nota default ones. Themed in war propaganda posters.

Lobby CPU consumption

buumi: but it uses constantly over 5% cpu while springlobby uses 0.3%

Result is:

  • it is not true except situation lobby is playing intro or switching background images in main menu
  • otherwise notAlobby is better performing than springlobby as you can see on attached screenshots

s44 authors in "About" lobby section

I want to list all authors of s44 in a lobby explicit page.

If anyone can sum this up, it would help us. (or link to some repostiory ingame file)
