    PC multiplayer lobby glitches

    Hi all,

    There seems to be an ever-recurring issue with online lobbies where for no good reason the number of human players changes from whatever it is set to down to 5, which in turn prevents the lobby starting the session.

    Anyone know why this happens?

    I generally set to 30 players, and sometimes you can race for hours without an issue, other times itll change to a low number while youre in qualifying or during a race, meaning anyone that joins the lobby can get no further, even when there is over 20 spots available.

    There is another common issue where host changes hands and regardless of settings it then forces all to use the same vehicle, which i never set, and no one likes it that way either.

    Is there a known cause for these issues or is it just another glitch that never got fixed?

    There are tracks with less spots avaliable by the smaller pits lane. The most restrictive is Cadwell. That could affect when you select one of that tracks. I preffer setting the lobby to 24 humans.

    Yes it's a known issue. When initial host leaves, blocks the car selection to the new host's car.

    Yes i know exactly what youre saying in the first section, some tracks are limited to smaller lobby sizes, but those are not able to be selected ( at least on my computer ) if im host and the lobby size is greater than track limits.

    The second part is something ive struck on about 20%-30% of host changes, it doesnt always occur, but bloody frustrating when youve got a good group of 20 drivers and next track locks everyone to a specific car!!

    If someone could fix these minor issues we'd be laughin really, not much else goes game breakingly wrong.

    Yeah it doesnt always happen, but when it does it pretty much ends the lobby.

    Ive got no clue why it would do it, because very often when i leave and go to create a new one, it is still on my regular 30 players but the max human players is either set to 5 or 1, and that is the cause of the lobby contains too many players, assign race director issue.

    It is essentially just poor design that has resulted in this happening, because my settings are never limited to 5 humans let alone 1 human, and i never force identical car either.

    I always allow players to make their own selection on what they want for views and assists, so it is not over-complicating it for the less experienced players that want to use those things.

    It doesnt make it more fair for anyone by locking all that stuff to defaults, just makes it more difficult for some players to enjoy really.
