SourceTV (part of the Source Dedicated Server)

  • Changed the behavior of "tv_relay" command to automatically stop any running map
  • Added command "tv_clients" to list connected spectators/proxy
  • Added -tvmasteronly command line parameter to restrict tvmaxclients to 1 - for use when feeding a single proxy server (not broadcasting)
  • Fixed high CPU usage when running a non standard tick rate
  • Fixed Linux build not correctly initializing, and then not running properly
  • Fixed "tv_maxclients 0" working if SourceTV is used for recording demos only
