A step in the right direction
=F|A=Annibal had this idea and I tough it would be good to share.
Would it be possible to enable r_shownormals when logged as a shoutcaster ?
Of course shoutcaster is only usable as spec so it wouldn't give advantage to anyone.
IMO it is not a so important feature but it could help finding cheaters.
The best way to get a final opinion is always a demo but it could help when specing players randomly.
I don't know how much time it would need but I'm still suggesting.
r_shownormals is already an integrated feature so pershap it is easier to do?
Like only triggering the cvar when logged as shoutcaster?

Another question : could it cause security issues?
Like could it make possible to someone to get shownormals while playing?

It's impossible without detour cvar's protection.
It can be done by forcing r_shownormals cvar, but you will force it to all clients, devs could implement that function into LUA, that would be nice to force cvar to target client :)

That sounds like a good idea!
