Thankya Florpy :)

I'm not sure if the latest build of DAK has fully addressed the early locking issue. I did see the server lock at 17 players earlier today. It might ultimately steam from an issue with the game itself :?

Hi, today and lately ( past week or so ) the server has been locking at 17 or lower right now it is locked at 15. i have also been noticing it will only unlock if the map changes. it has been locked for quite some time 20+ minutes. hope the plugin gets fixed. *edit Also here is a SS

Just an update to this, I believe I proved my theroy right.

The server was locked at 15/19 when I first checked.

It stayed locked for 15+ mins, for the entire map.

Population dwindled down to 10/19, still being locked.

As soon as the map changed from mineshaft, to tram, the server became unlocked again.

Didn't SS the 15/19, but got others as proof.

Below image doesn't show the time lapse, but I refreshed right when the map changed.

Thanks for the reports and screencaps guys. I'll let the mod author know (I'll also link those screencaps).

xDragon has updated DAK to help combat early locking. I'll update the server as soon as I can. Probably won't happen till tomorrow or Monday though.

This is what xDragon wrote for those interested:

There is no way to hide reserve slots currently, thats something that would need to be allowed by UWE. As for the reserve slot password issues, I corrected a couple calculation issues with the reserve slot plugin (would have allowed 1 extra player), added server lock status messages to the sv_reservedebug command, and added a periodic check to the lock state (every 60 seconds). I just updated github with these changes.

So I just installed the latest update xDragon was talking about. Like usual, let us know of any server weirdness. I'm personally going to keep an eye out for on the random vote and sv_randomall command, as it seems to not be grabbing everyone from the readyroom when randoming (some people are still sitting in the readyroom when the command is executed).

This happened to me as well, but at like 14/19 or so.

Try to connect, and the password box pops up, even though the 'lock' symbol wasn't in the server browser.

Leaving the password field blank, and just hitting join works. Might confuse some people though.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll forward that info to the mod author later on.

Edit: I also posted the other occurrences of early locking, like when the server locked at zero players last night...
