Rewrite developer overlay to use class syntax, one class per checkbox, a class…


Rewrite developer overlay to use class syntax, one class per checkbox, a class for the EntityState overlay and TimeWarp debug feature, refs #5387.

Using 22 classes instead of 1 class (refs rP22370/D1928) leverages more benefit of the paradigm.
In particular it means the checkboxes can own the EntityState and TimeWarp helpers and the DeveloperOverlay itself can remain independent.
Improve performance by 200 microseconds per turn by unsubscribing from onSimulationUpdate when the developer overlay is not opened, refs rP23076 / D2378.
Move TimeWarp from input.js from rP8803 to independent class using hotkey release event from rP19028, refs #3194.

canControlAll does not function as intended, see respective inline.


playerState && playerState.controlsAll?


This checks whether the selected entitie's player can control all. Which means that despite the player canControlAll they cannot control an enemy unit if the enemy player cannot control all.
Fix: g_ViewedPlayer instead of entState.player.

The result of the function will be used to assign a checked property of a Checkbox object, that requires the value to have the correct type, see rP22538 (and for observers not viewing a playerperspective you get undefined).


Oh, you're right, thanks!

Also as of this commit playerState.controlsAll is checked once per entity per function call instead of once per function call.

(In case controlAll was enabled one can skip testing if every entity is owned. On the other hand that is never the case, so in the average case where the player has a purely owned selection, testing for all entities being owned or controlAll being enabled will return one evaluation sooner than testing whether controlAll is enabled or all entities being owned.)
