Too many players being let in a server?

  • Describe the bug. Describe what is happening when the bug occurs. Describe what you would normally expect to occur.

For some reason, 5 players are sometimes being let in my 4 player game - this is breaking my game since I only have 4 “plots” in the game.

  • How often does the bug happen (Everytime/sometimes/rarely)? What are the steps that reproduce the bug? Please list them in very high detail. Provide simple example places that exhibit the bug and provide description of what you believe should be the behavior.

This is about the 4th time I’ve seen it in the last few days!

  • Where does the bug happen (www, gametest, etc) Is it level-specific? Is it game specific? Please post a link to the place that exhibits the issue.

Happens in my game, although might happen in others too!

  • Would a screenshot or video help describe it to someone? If so, post one.

  • When did the bug start happening? If we can tie it to a specific release that helps us figure out what we broke.

Really not sure, since I didn’t release the game that long ago.

It happens since the start. I think it already got reported since it occurs alot.

The only way to fix that is to Kick the player with a message like “Error connecting to the server please try again” with a if numPlayers > maxPlayers statement.

Yeah, its just not ideal and definitely a bug that should be fixed if possible! :smiley:

Yeah but I think they didn’t fix that yet because they still didn’t find how? I’m not sure about it :slight_smile:

Would be more pleasant if you just teleported the player to the same place again. Hopefully matchmaking doesn’t derp twice.

That’s actually a really good idea. I didn’t think of that gg :stuck_out_tongue:

Just teleport them to the game again, it’ll shuffle them into another server. This has been happening since the dawn of time and although its been improved it likely cannot be fixed without that sort of detection mechanism either on ROBLOX’s end or your end to reshuffle them.
