Fix: add back 'Spectate' option to company toolbar menu #9556

merged 1 commit into from Sep 18, 2021

@TrueBrain TrueBrain commented Sep 14, 2021

Motivation / Problem

People have been using the "Spectate" in the menu as a quick way to mark themselves as "away" in multiplayer games. As we have no alternative for this flow, reinstate this button.

More details here: #9532 (comment)


This is a cherry-pick of the work of JGRPP: JGRennison/OpenTTD-patches@40a6181
Which is a partial cherry-pick of #9532.
Closes #9532.

As by commit message:

This was removed in ce7406f88b, but people used this to quickly
mark themselves as away.

I think this is a reasonable compromise between #9532 & current
