Somehow, I test the game by myself with some setting up for the tank HP, the tank get oneshot by the bot ... so something wrong with it?

Excuse the necro, I have a problem and this post seemed like the best place to ask.

I started a public campaign lobby with a friend, picked "Steam Group Server" and our dedicated server in the list. I basically followed the method described here: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showpo...88&postcount=5

Eventually my friend had to leave but I stayed, and the server would regularly have random players come and go. However I noticed the number of human players never exceeded 4; when there were less than 4 human players it would take no more than 5 to 10 minutes for a random player to join. However there were actually 4 players, random people seemed to stop joining.

At one point, I had three random players on our server, plus me. One of them tried to invite a friend to join the server, but they were getting the "server full" message. I left in order for them to join, then I reconnected just fine via IP address.

What is wrong here? Wasn't L4DToolz supposed to prevent this problem? Is there something misconfigured? I'm using the version linked in the original post.

I did deviate from the guide as I found some info is dated; I'm using ABM instead of bebop as according to the replies here bebop has not been maintained for a long time. I also do not have SuperVersus as ABM is supposed to replace that (though I have been considering using both)

I also since have added Silver's Remove Lobby Reservation to see whether or not that fixes it.

I just now realized 'sm_cvar "survivor_limit"' was not in my server.cfg, so it was on its default of 4. That might have been the cause of my problem but I'm not sure yet.

Edit2: I can't seem to change it, it says it changed sucessfully but when I check it again it's still at 4?

sm_cvar "survivor_limit" 20.0
[SM] Changed cvar "survivor_limit" to "20.0".
sm_cvar "survivor_limit"
[SM] Value of cvar "survivor_limit": "4.000000"
