Build 254 (13/7/12, Team Member+)
Added new variable m_renderfarZ to the camera code. This allows us to have a seperate far clip plane for frustum culling and what we actually use when rendering
Fix for the shadows not matching up correctly with recent camera changes
- Ghost manager ensures that only ghosts known to the cache manager are added to the list of selected ghosts
- When the cache manager replaces a ghost with a better one in the same settings and the old ghost is selected for inclusion in race, the reference will be updated to the new better ghost
- Fixed assert in debug code when a ghost was selected to the race.
Added new camera specs using the new camera code for seperating the far clip plane for frustum culling and what we actually use when rendering. Should fix the issue of disapearing objects
