    Full game bug strikes again!

    Public game
    limit of 8 players
    no one in there except for my mule
    game is permed
    find a spot to do a quick xfer
    a bot comes in to spam
    more bots come in
    I wait til they are all gone
    drop items
    try to come back in with another guy...
    game is full
    wait for 10 seconds
    game is full
    wait for another 10 seconds
    game is full
    switch accounts
    game is full
    wait for 1 minute
    game is full
    wait for 10 seconds
    game is full
    switch back to mule
    game is full
    game does not exist

    :crazyeyes:

    By never trying to mule in a public game. I don't think I've ever encountered this bug with private muling games. I've had my share of hard lessons long ago.

    Pretty much what Feysal said. Perming a private game is just as easy, and MUCH more convenient than transferring in a pub game.

    This exact same thing happened to me in my early days. I was trying to transfer a HoZ in a pub baal game and couldn't get back in because the game was full =/.

    Full game bug also applies to private games. A public game is often better if you just don't want to play the waiting game.

    Oh well, the cons of playing on bnet.

    I've never had a game full "bug" in my own private games. I keep the default limit of players to 8, and since it's a private passworded game, bots don't show up. Better to wait and be safe than be greedy and potentially lose some nice things.

    Re: Full game bug strikes again!

    y, problem is especially in pub games.because of saving data there is a delay and it could be displayed like players still in game and game could be full....
    edit: and because bn is very offten lagging so its very unrelyable to mule in pub games.so just in need...

    Solution 1: Self mule via password protected games
    Solution 2: Own another CD-key yourself
    Solution 3: Press /f l

    I always do my muling in EDIT:pRIVATE games, so i've never had a problem there.
    But I do know how frustrating this glitch is, particularly in cow games. I'll make a game with someone to open the portal, there will be like 4 other people in it (one of them my friend) I'll leave and the game gets flooded with spam bots, they quit. I try to rejoin with the character I'm going to cow with, "Game is Full"

    I /w my friend and tell him to yell at someone till theres an open spot, and he tells me there's 3 open spots. Can't even count how many times this has happened, only when I'm trying to cow though :S

    Edit: oops, not sure how I ended up saying public there, must have been what I was thinking about

    Never EVER mule in public games unless its garbage stuff you won't mind losing.

    Simply create a game, sit in it for a FULL 5 minutes.

    Then sit in it another 2 minutes to be sure.

    THEN drop all the stuff you have to mule. Then go mule.

    If its too valuable to be lost, you get a friend to help you and it never hits the ground or you own two copies and do fast user switching.

    Too much can go wrong with public games.

    Re: Full game bug strikes again!

    i would like to add two:
    Solution 4: post a muling request on the either the player matchup forum or if you play europe in the ETF parts of these forums! :thumbup:

    Solution 5: join "public chat etf" chat channel and ask if anyone wants to help you mule from there its usually afk people hanging there but you will get a reply from them over time!
