Since many people are updating to CVS, and there still has been some issues with the speed auto kick, I have made the percentage that is used for an auto kick be a command line option

use -speedtol <speed factor> to controll it
the default is still the same as it was before, but if you are having problems with it you can now increase it.

as an example -speedtol 2.5 would auto kick anyone who is going 2.5 times faster then the speed they are suposed to go.

will this effect the high speed flag if the value is set too low?

It's relative to the max speed that the server thinks a player is allowed to go at. So, it's factor*25m/s for a plain tank and factor*37.5m/s for a flag with the highspeed flag (actually, the calculation is done on squared speed).

this didn't change anything other then leting a user set the value at run time. autokick has been in CVS for a while, Xmission has been running for a while as well.

So there is no disable setting, but you can effectively disable it by putting the value to a huge value?

yeah put in a huge number. I don't think the idea of server speed check is a bad idea, just presently the logic is a bit screwwy, so we need this setting.
