Hmm, it's not an ideal solution for autotest.py:
-Originally there was no replay overlay
-The overlay was added a bit over a year ago (r7731)
-Some months ago (r8353 I think) frame skipping was added
---hideoverlays only exists as of today
But I guess it's not worth worrying about. I can at least make autotest.py
not pass the flag to older copies of game
