[Feature] Skipping unwanted battles

Recently I have added a new feature to help the player to follow the battles. The map centers at the target area (if off screen) for each battle. There isn’t any way to disabled this yet.

Do you think I should add the following features:
- Option to disable the auto-center.
- When the battle area is offscreen, skip to the next battle.

I use to play some games with my brother each week. Actually we're still enjoying looking at the battles. Given that each moves last 1 round (usually), each attack move are done 1 time.

But i think that if most attack moves lasted several rounds (ST way), we would be fed up quickly.
