When I create server in OSP mod, anyone can join the game during warmup. But after the game has been started, new players can't join the game, server says something like "You can join the game after the current match ends". How can I disable this?

I don't have this problem in baseq3.

You need to keep in mind that OSP is designed for competitive play, there doesn't appear to be a named option to enable the ability to join a team during an active round, you could try setting FFA rather than FFA (Competitive) and see if this allows you to join a game during a live round - you can do this using the 'vote' options in game provided you have server_availmodes set to a value that allows it – kalina Dec 21 '12 at 9:40
@pixel Thanks for answer. But how can I set FFA rather than FFA (Competitive)? I have g_gametype 0, isn't FFA? server_availmodes returns 127. – DrTyrsa Dec 22 '12 at 11:04

The parameter you need is match_latejoin. Set it to 1 to allow players to join.

Or you could just set g_dowarmup to 0. This disables warmup mode, so the game will start immediately and match_latejoin parameter will be ignored (so it will be more like baseq3 FFA).

match_latejoin 1 worked, thanks a lot. – DrTyrsa Dec 25 '12 at 17:53
