Now that many scenarios are available for easy download, it can be desirable to be able to look at different scenarios and load another from within the game. This patch adds a "load scenario" entry to the save/load menu for GM_NORMAL
Patch is for r15776.

One question improvement can be made to the patch: the string naming
Currently it reads:
STR_015C_SAVE_GAME :Save game
STR_015D_LOAD_GAME :Load game
+STR_015D2_LOAD_SCENARIO :Load scenario
STR_015E_QUIT_GAME :Abandon game
STR_015F_QUIT :Exit

when the strings would be re-named to

e.g. s/STR_015E_QUIT_GAME/STR_015F_QUIT_GAME/ and s/STR_015F_QUIT/STR_015G_QUIT/ for all files lang/*.txt

But renaming all those strings in all language files would increase the patch size tremendously. I'll gladly supply such extended patch, if desired.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Mass closure of patch tickets with no commentary for >5 years. Goal is to reduce patch queue as an experiment to see if it aids faster reviewing and rejection/acceptance (it may not). If this offends you and the patch is maintained and compiles with current trunk, discuss with andythenorth in irc. (andythenorth has no ability to review patches but can re-open tickets).

Shouldn't adding 'Load scenario' mean that 'Load heightmap' should be added too? After all, heightmaps can be downloaded in a very similar manner. And shouldn't that then result in adding 'New game' too? If you can do the 'start new game' via heightmap, a new game without heightmap should be possible too.
