Is this even something that needs to be done? I think exiting and hitting 'continue' like it is now is fine. Is there any GUI-research what is faster, 2x choosing between two very short options or 1x choosing between three longer options?

A+B and C+D are different things, so any answer should have two parts. I'd like A to say 'Yes, skip summary'. I think D is fine, if there absolutely has something to be changed.

See: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/ticket/4300, with this argument: "A typical use case is when saving a game to follow it later, we may not want to see the infos about the enemies."

whats the alternative to 'B' skip Sum&Quit ? it skips Sum and not Quit?

you wrote its ' the quit dialog' ? that means user already read and pressed Quit? if yes then use D i think

I probably should have clarified a bit more: The quit dialog I mean, shows up when you want to exit an ingame session.

that means:

1. exit-button (or other ways to exit the window? Alt+F4) ==>
2. quit dialog

so whats the meaning of exit? exit is != resign. so exit is what? i not native English speaker.   i suspect option b is redundant. guess is not necessary to say extra again (but sometimes asking two times is better ;).

A is: 1. Exit=>2. quit dialog=>3. No(not exit)/Sumary(exit or not?)/Yes(exit)
B is: 1. Exit=>2. quit dialog=>3. No(not exit)/Yes+Sumary/Yes(exit)

yes i like A most now. i vote for B or  :) Maybe rename it to 'Exit-Dialog' ;)

If you are in a game session and let's say win/lose this dialog would come up asking you if you want to stay, leave with- or without looking at the summary.

The dialog would also pop up, if you open the menu in the right upper corner while in game and select exit.
