Summary0003202: Dynamic light size cannot be enforced by server
DescriptionSetting gl_lights_size to something huge, like 10, can be used to see what's happening behind walls, and is not enforced by sv_forcegldefaults.
Additional InformationConsidering that even the default size of 1 can be theoretically used as a wallhack, it might be preferable to introduce a new cvar to force light size (for maps that require them) or disable dynamic lights. Something like sv_maxlightsize with a default of -1 (unlimited), 0 being force off, 1 being no larger than default size.

I think it'd be better and easier to just force them on with a size of 1 if SV_ForceGLDefaults is true. Seems pointless to have a separate server variable.

I agree, this should be tacked onto sv_forcegldefaults.

In the latest GZDoom, the ability to change dynamic light size was removed. (And for good reason.) Might as well follow that.
