Issue description
When using the option to set the worldspawn properties within the .ump file, putting a comment line in there results in freezing the game while loading the map. The console shows > 2015/01/27 10:32:28 ERROR: Game Error: ED_ParseEntity: EOF without closing brace
Writing a comment after the key/value pair works, but not starting the line with '//'.
As this is a place where poeple are free to mod the game by changing values, adding new ones e.t.c., it would be good if the game would correctly recognize a comment.
Steps to reproduce this issue
worldspawn {
"light_day" "0 0 0" // it is underground, thus no sunlight
"light_night" "0 0 0" // it is underground, thus no moonlight
"ambient_day" "0.1 0.2 0.1"
"ambient_night" "0.1 0.2 0.1"
// "_color" "0.37 0.59 0.37" <------------- this breaks parsing the settings
}
