Patch for R.P.I control serverside

We've talked with capodecima recently, and we've confronted to an element rather disturbing: the Red Pain Intensity usage.

Other ports has the R.P.I set to 0.5, so twice as lower than DooM2.exe or Odamex.
But if the sv_allowredscreen is set to 1, players can have the opportunity to have to not have any sign of RPI, making their game so clear that it's not fun for players.

Hence this addition: We would like that the server has to define the limits of it if the sv_allowredscreen is set to 2 : for instance, with a minimum of 0.5 to a maximum of 1.0 .

Patch is there.

(Btw, off-note, but there is a typo with the sv_allowpwo description (swit>>h<<ching)

Recent talk includes redpainintensity defaulting to 0.5 since the vanilla intensity is ridiculous for modern monitors.

Its not vanilla, but it is one of those "we need to make this feel nice" things that Odamex also strives for.
