Change: remove the ability to control "max spectators" #9466

Motivation / Problem

We want to remove the "lobby" window, as it is just an annoying window. As replacement, the "Join Game" button will join the game as spectator, from which you can move to a (new) company.

In order to get there, we need to remove "max spectators", as if you set spectators to 0, it would mean nobody can join.

Honestly, I am not sure "max spectators" has ever been useful.


Removed max-spectators. For master-server info, replaced it with "max-clients" for now, as that is basically the next value .. you can never have more spectators than "max-clients" :D


Checklist for review

Some things are not automated, and forgotten often. This list is a reminder for the reviewers.

  • The bug fix is important enough to be backported? (label: 'backport requested')
  • This PR affects the save game format? (label 'savegame upgrade')
  • This PR affects the GS/AI API? (label 'needs review: Script API')
    • ai_changelog.hpp, gs_changelog.hpp need updating.
    • The compatibility wrappers (compat_*.nut) need updating.
  • This PR affects the NewGRF API? (label 'needs review: NewGRF')

Soon we will make "join game" join the game as spectator first,
so limiting the amount of spectators makes no sense anymore in
that context. Not sure it ever did make sense.
