I like HL, I really do. But...

Let's say you are trying to join a game on HL. Oh cool! It's 12/16 players and this game sounds fun."Plenty of room for me", you say. Well, you click on it, and then it says "connection rejected. Maximum 11 connections." What the heck! My guess is it is some kind of slot reservation thing. Is that what it is?

Might be because the host left 16 in the HL info, but limited to 12 in the game. Dunno if it's possible, but it seems the most likely explanation.

Its not the fault of Hyperlobby....

People enter the server through other means eg All Seeing Eye and Hyerlobby only tracks its own players.

HUH! thanks you guys for posting this, as I have been wondering about this very thing. I have just been giving up and going into the empty rooms. This is why these forums are worth all the other junk that goes down here, as I learn something every day.

Just keep clicking join over and over. It will try to rejoin ever few seconds and you'll get in as soon as someone leaves.

Often, this is the only way to get into the hotly contested cockpit-off games.

Who has that kind of patience? I'd rather just move on or if I can't find a good room, either get some good porn going or if I have to fly I'll just progress my pilot thru the Experten missions offline.

You can get in a game if you try hard enough. And the longer it takes, the better it usually is.

Yup.

Try adding all pilots in game to your friends list.
As soon as the list changes - jump in.

(I did this for a race meet last Friday - much more polite that hammering the host ...

... though I now have a lot of "friends" to remove)

People often join by IP as well m8. HL and or UBI do not register this. FYI you can join a CO-OP on Hyper by getting a the hosts info and just hitting enter. As long as the host has not hit fly yet you can still join.

Some people do it intentionally so that the server is always visible. Once a server is full in HL, it drops off the list.
