I remember before xmas, I was able to do 8-player games for the normal TranZit ZM gamemode by modding some vars (e.g. party_maxplayers 8 and sv_maxclients 8), but now whenever the 5th player joins the server (during loading screen), it says game over and the game goes back to lobby... Has anyone succeed making a 8-player TranZit lobby after whatever update fucked that up?
I also noticed sv_maxclients seems to have vanished from the dvar range. The name string is still in the exe, but no meaningful pointer refers to that value anymore. There's a dvar named com_maxclients, but I'm not sure whether it has any effect.
