I may be having memory issues, but I think I remember that server CVARs used to be read-only for all players except the arbitrator (usually the host, but if the hosting player quits the game, another player will get this role). But now I've suddenly noticed that any player can change the value of any server CVAR, be it a custom CVAR defined in CVARINFO, or a built-in gameplay option. Is this supposed to happen or is it a bug? If it's the former, does anyone know when and why this change was introduced?
Also, here is an excerpt from ZDoom Wiki on server CVARs:
This doesn't make much sense because the wiki doesn't explain what kind of players are considered "select".ZDoom Wiki wrote:This CVAR is shared by all players, and in network games, only select players can change it.
