Build 254 (13/7/12, Team Member+)
Added new variable m_renderfarZ to the camera code. This allows us to have a separate 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 system:
– 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.
