Summary0003626: Zandronum plugin's "Allow servers to display my country" option requires a restart for changes and/or is plain obsolete
DescriptionDoomseeker has a checkbox toggle for "Allow servers to display my country" in the Zandronum game engine plugin. Once enabled, on next restart it seems to set "+cl_hidecountry 0" to join command line. Toggle it off and it simply removes the option from join command line (your country is still broadcasted!), until you next time restart and it comes back alive as "+cl_hidecountry 1". The UI never tells you a restart is required, unlike with localization settings since Doomseeker 1.2 or so.

At least Zandronum 3.0 has the option "Hide country" in multiplayer settings, do we really need to configure this option from Doomseeker or support any earlier version? There are the hundreds of other client configuration knobs in Zandronum its we don't touch from Doomseeker, but this.
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Install Doomseeker with the Zandronum plugin.
  2. Run Doomseeker executable.
  3. Options → Configure (F5).
  4. Under game engines (at the top) is Zandronum. See there to find the option.
  5. Optional: Toggle at will and see how it does (or doesn't) affect "show join command line" of servers right clicked from the server browser.
Additional InformationPost-mortem summary: This option will be (or was) removed in Doomseeker 1.3.

I'm also saying, Zandronum can manage its own client configuration (zandronum.ini) just fine I'd guess.

I'm inclined to say that this option can be removed altogether from Doomseeker to save us any trouble with maintaining it whatsoever. Pol, do with it what you think is best at your own discretion.

Since the game has been open-sourced the option is more of a "polite request" rather than requirement as everyone can just alter their servers to completely ignore it. Client's IP is still known to the server at all times and the country can always be derived from that. I actually think that's exactly what's already happening with cl_hidecountry 0 and I doubt that the country is broadcasted by the client.

If the parameter can be set in the ini, I'll certainly be inclined to removing it. Generally it's better to have all the configs in one place, so having this one set separately is no longer necessary.
EDIT: it's saved in the "cl_connect_flags", with a value of 4.

Someone could check if the "Hide country" option is available in Zandronum 2.1's multiplayer options, since we still do support Zandronum 2.1 in "Create game" while those old versioned servers are rare.

I'm still inclined to remove this feature from the plugin in Doomseeker, due to how Zandronum 3.0 handles it in its INI settings file and per Zalewa above.

Zandronum 2 does not give a gui way to hide your code country (I've looked at all the sections offered), and it's still saved in the .ini as cl_connect_flags with a value of 4. I still would remove it, since it's becoming more of an edge case (and when doomseeker 1.3 gets released Zandronum 2.0 servers may even no longer exist). You can always add the "+cl_hidecountry" parameter to your custom parameters.
PR if we all agree
