Server not allowing full 16 players

Post by JaceJohn » Sat May 14, 2011 9:43 pm

Hey all, hoping someone can help me out here. For whatever reason, my server reports that it's full when it reaches 15/16 players. Nothing appears to be wrong in my config, and i've ordered a 16 slot server from GS. Anybody have any idea what's up? I would post my config, but the forum won't let me paste it in or link to it.

Ensure that you update your server using the Steam Update mod.

are you sure you don't have reserved slots set up in your config?

When a new update becomes available for your game, unless it is pushed through by the developer as a required patch; you have the right to not install said patch because you may hear that it is bugged somewhere or something along those lines. It also allows you to bring down the server for 15-30 minutes when it is best suited for you, rather than in the middle of peak-time population.

So yes, it is your job to update the Brink server when an update becomes available. It is very easy to do.

Simply head to your Control Panel, then head to the "Mods" section of your Brink server and install the "Steam Update". If an update is available it will normally take around 15-30 minutes, maybe more, to complete the download and install.

In this time do something else; do not attempt to restart the server or reinstall the update as it will cancel the present update and so add more time to your update. Be patient, check back in 30 minutes, if you still can't see the server in-game after this time, wait another 30 minutes; if it is still not there then contact support.

I'm now having the same issue, server is "full" at 15 players. No reserved slots. Entered yet another ticket.

It's looking like i'll have to put in a ticket as well. The problem still isn't resolved.

Guys,

Post your ticket numbers in reference to this issue here. We would like to see a sample of servers having this difficulty.

I have been wondering if this issue is due to spectators joining the server but not being counted. I just turned off spectators this morning so I can't be sure if this will fix the issue until later on when my server will be used. Are any of you having this trouble with spectators turned off?

I have spectators on in our server so you may have a good point here in that maybe it's not counting spectators. I'll keep an eye on our server for this issue too.

Anyone still having a problem with this? Last I checked my server was still experiencing it, although lately it is hard to tell consider most of the Brink traffic has taken a nose dive. I notice it is still a problem on other servers I randomly join.

since the most recent patch, our BRINK server is having the same issue. Only showing or allowing 14 players in the server and returning a message when you try to join that says the server is full. I don't have reserve slots turned on and server is up to date.
