Voting system feedback improvements
You can see what vote is currently active (which map or player is being voted for).
You can see how many votes that have been cast and how many that are necessary for the votes to be successful.
When a vote has failed you get to know which one and why (how many voted for it and how many were necessary).
AI bots more responsive to radio commands.
Content check currently only works with official Battlefield 1942 and RTR files/maps. If you try to run a server with a user created map/mod installed and turn content check on, clients might not be able to join.
If you try to connect to a Road to Rome server that is running a Road to Rome map and you don't have Road to Rome installed, you will see a "data differs from server" message.
