I'm sure we all know the situation where a server is full, but you really want to join. Would it be possible to have IDE re-check the server every, say, 5 seconds for an opening, and when available, automatically join? That's basically what I do manually: refresh, refresh, refresh until somebody leaves and then double-click as fast as I can. tongue

The pop-up that says "Server is full. Connect anyway?" could, next to [ Ok ] and [ Cancel ], contain an option to enable auto-join or something that would start the abovementioned procedure. Something like this:

Good or bad idea?

in serverinfo window, click Auto, then Launch - it will autorefresh server (during several minutes) and automatically launch game if there will be free slots
is it what you ask about?

Ah, you already had it! Yes, that is what I meant. I never found it because I never venture into the ServerInfo window as I can get all the information from the Servers and Players tabs as well.

Implementing autojoin in the "Server is full"-dialogue makes sense to me though... You can think about it, if it's easy to do and if people'd like it.

Personally I'd remove the ServerInfo window altogether, bind middle-click to Refresh All again, and bring back AutoRefresh Selected Servers. But maybe that's just me. tongue
