New Commands in Version 1.01
RotateMap - starts the next map in rotation, or if no map rotation is active,
restarts the current map
mp_iCreditHealthBonus - Health given to player when they pick up
a credit. Can range from -100 (need a medpack to pickup credits) to +100
(regain full health on pickup).
mp_iWeaponRespawnDelay - Time between pickup spawners spawning
weapons. Default is zero (use the time set in the individual spawners)
mp_iLimitMultiplier - Set score / credit limits as a multiple of
the number of players connected. If 0, uses the limit set by mp_iPointsLimit or
mp_fCreditPoolMultiplier - limits the total number of credits created in

is set to 1.5 and you need 10 credits to win, after 15 credits exist in the
game players will respawn without any credits until the total number of credits
drops below 15 again. Default value is 1.5.
