[PATCH] Allow spectators to join the game after it started
|Reported by:||elexis||Owned by:||leper|
|Priority:||Nice to Have||Milestone:||Alpha 19|
The gamesetup should have an option that allows new clients to join the game as observers, even if they were not connected before the game started.
Besides spectating games, this would allow them to estimate how long the game will take to finish and even communicate to the players as well. Sometimes people also miss to join the game before it starts by seconds. Since its optional, private matches can still be private.
Unwanted spectators should be kicked then (see #3241).
