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)
