I've seen people talk about being stuck in spectator mode when entering the game via the link at the top of the sites webpage. I've heard that it is default when the server is full. The link has been broken for me and others in the recent past, but I now see it has the updated info for the current map and players. However, with only 9 players it still enters me as a spectator. I've heard that this is not a server side issue, it is client side. Some flag that got stuck when I entered a full server in the past I suspect. All of this is no problem personally because I enter through the game console. What is a problem is I seem to be stuck in this same spectator mode when I playtest a map in UnrealEd. I get the "Press fire to view a different player" and everything. Can someone point me in a direction to find my problem? I can handle a technical answer.

To fix the "always joining spectator" bug from your desktop, open up your User.ini file (in System folder) and change the option "SpectatorOnly" to "0" instead of "1".

However, if you click on the "spectate" button ingame, know that it will change that value back to "1" and you will need to change it back to "0". 

guesse i got nothing to add to the quote..
not sure if it works for UnrealED aswel, but it did fix my desktop icon.

And if that happens again (it goes off and on for me sometimes) you just have to press Escape and click Join

Only works offine when testing maps, though. If you're stuck like that when connected to a server you have to reconnect as a player.

Funny thing for me is that I can never get the Join button to enable. I am running the latest patch level on XP. Instead, I end up having to go to the server browser and connect the "normal way".

Yeah it only allows me to use the Join button when offline.
