[PATCH] Nonvisual Autostart

Reported by: elexis Owned by: leper
Priority: Should Have Milestone: Alpha 22
Component: Core engine Keywords: patch
Cc: Patch: Phab:D379


There should be a way to simulate a game from commandline without starting all the graphics. This is useful for AI testing or testing of scripted maps ("dry run" on danubius or survival of the fittest for example).

Add a -autostart-nonvisual option. Patch by sacha_vrand. Fixes #4577.

This allows automated testing of AIs without any GUI or sound (similar to non-visual replays).
