    Negative.

    Actually, there was a problem where you couldn't respawn, but I don't think there was a fix other than leaving/rejoining the server.

    What GotBeer is trying to say is: YES, it happened in Beta 1 too.

    It didn't happen like this in Beta 1a....

    Sometimes when you got gutblowed, you would be unable to spawn in, and have to reconnect... I played 1a for months, and didn't have this kind of trouble.

    I confirm what copperjohn said. I played hundreds of games in beta1A and never had this spawn bug thing.

    Well, it didn't happen that often, but it DID happen. .. at least during my few games I played the beta 1.

    Um, yeah, that's what about what I was trying to say (been a long week). It didn't just occur after gutblows, though. And it happened A LOT less frequently than this new issue (like a thousandfold increase or some other number I might pull out of my ass, but still a lot less).

    Yah, it happens almost all the time now. For some reason, every time I die I get the text "Press [Fire] to join the game" whether the respawn bug occurs or not. Also, I'm unable to cycle through the deploy points after I reselect my team.

    Think you have to reselect the team again to cycle through each one if that happens. It's not really a biggie if you know what to do i suppose :)

    Its really gotten too annoying that I just cant play anymore!! Sometimes when I do switch teams it doesnt work, and even if it does I still cant toggle deploy points. I would have to exit the server and re-enter:(

    Like i've mentioned before, I wished we got a minor patch to just fix the spawn bug cause beta2 is very playable!

    I usually don't have to disconnect and reconnect. I've been playing well over 2/3 hours a day and it's happened to me once a night where i really had to d/c and reconnect. All the other times I can use f4.

    Variation on a Theme.....

    I've had a crazy respawn bug that's happened 4 times now.

    If I'm waiting to respawn at a deploy point that's being hacked by an enemy I get knocked off my team and get a first person spectator view of the enemy who was hacking. It's almost like a demo record type of thing. wtf is that all about?

    It's somewhat amusing because I can see them line up shots on ppl, but the only workaround is to dis/reconnect.

    Here's a mutator I threw together which may or may not fix the respawn bug. I haven't really tested it, and it's entirely possible that it may not do anything at all and just cause more problems, so if someone wants to put it on their server and give it a try, please let me know how it works.

    It's a hack and doesn't really fix the problem -- that'll be in the next official patch/fix/whatever -- but it should be enough to get around it.

    So, is that a server-side fix only, or should I install it on my comp too?
