Nothing I'm aware of, beyond the message bottom right of screen being changed.

Instant crashes

I can't play Defcon any longer. If I try and connect the computer crashes. It also crashes if I double-esc to get back to the desktop. Numlock still works, but I have to hard-reset the computer. This has only started happening in the last day or two. I'm running Vista, and everything is up to date. ...

Search the forums for "Dedicated Server." Your complaints are neither new nor original, which is why the dedicated server was created. And yes, that is the internets for you. Get over it. If you really want to ensure that games will last, arrange games in advance either here or on IRC (ir...

Mine is the world's cheapest shit keyboard filled with breadcrumbs and hair, connected loosely to an ugly cream metal box with broken buttons on the front and tea stains on the top. I'm sitting in a room with the laths exposed on the wall because I haven't got a plasterer to finish it. My chair has ...

I'm in the UK on 4Mb NTL broadband. Speed tests over here are about 3.7Mb on average.

I have updated that debug.txt file. I tried to join a few servers just now, failed, but eventually connected to one, and I was 'unknown'. I then quit the program.

Bugs like this are not easy to fix without cooperation. This kind of attitude will do nothing to fixing the bug. What kind of network card do you have? What about routers? ISP? Who are you connecting to? Does it happen to any game? Does that include LAN games? Have you tried anything to fix the bug...

7 times tonight. I haven't been able to join a single game because of this stupid bug. I get in, but I'm unknown. Reconnect, same. Reconnect, same again. Reconnect, oops the server is full. Sorry, try somewhere else - only I can't because I'm unknown there too. I'm rapidly losing patience. I can put...

heh Korvin

That was me :) IIRC, you were Africa, and your teammate was Asia. I was the USSR. Asia asked me to join, so I did. Of course Asia had placed everything, I took stock of the situation and immediately left to join with the EU. I couldn't see any African sites. Only Asian. Which is why, at the end of t...

The PC v1.4 patch (beta1) is ready for download and testing - have a look in the Beta Test Discussion forum for details. Version 1.4 is not compatible with any previous versions, so most of the server listing will show up Red (cant join), but you will be able to play 1.4 users on PC and Mac. The Ma...

Particular steps to reproduce - start steam. Start Defcon. Try to enter a server. Encounter random fault. Throw keyboard through window. Its got nothing to do with the number of players on a server. Or other people joining. I'm astounded nobody has heard of this bug. Everyone I play against knows ab...

Everyone I've spoken to has experienced this ingame. You log on, your name doesn't appear in the list of 6 players, but you can chat with other people. They don't see your name, just a gray 'unknown' and whatever you've typed. Its extremely annoying, most times a 6 player server appears the slots ar...

'unknown'

Right. When is this bug going to be fixed? I am sick and tired of connecting to servers and being known as 'unknown' with no player slot. Then reconnecting, only to find the server full. And no, theres nothing wrong with my firewall or anything else. Its a bug with the game, and needs fixing. It hap...
