    Why is it that, whereas every other server I've ever played on will pop up the list of current players and an option to auto-join when they're full, this one actually attempts to join and then pops up a simple "Server is full." message? Is there some kind of bug that makes it think there's a slot when there isn't? (I did notice that it always shows 22/23 instead of 23/23 — I'm assuming the 23rd is the demo recorder — but it used to show 25/25 and this wasn't a problem).

    This is especially frustrating on gameday, when the 22 slots (that's another thing; why come only 22?) get filled up quickly and I have no option but to mash Refresh every few seconds waiting for someone to leave the server.

    Thanks. I've set the visible max players to 23 instead of the previous 24. This will be rolled out on both servers once they restart.

    This is a mismatch that is caused by our frequent change server/service provider. While we did have 25 slots on our previous server and we could keep the replay/STV bot hidden. The new server is 24 slots and the config files were not updated to suit.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I think that's because we turned replay off. The replay and STV are different "bots" and need to be hidden by different methods. Will talk with Rav on the matter.

    Well, the latest update did have this:

    So this may have already been remedied for us.

    One of the updates last week made it so the replay bot doesn't show up in the server browser's player count listings. (Which is a good thing, kind of annoying to have the server show 1/25 when it's empty of players.)

    I know that my server was showing up as 24/25 when it was fully full (24 players + 1 replay bot). The server browser would let you connect, since it sure as hell looks like there's a slot open. But once the game goes to try to connect, the server would tell you nope.avi, we be full.

    Had to change sv_visiblemaxplayers to 24, and now it seems to work fine.
