Dedicated server problem of playable slots not showing up problems with some missions made or ported over. Can be played if hosted by players, but not on the server.

N/A depends on mission.
I think the discrepancy between some missions being hosted by your self successfully & unsuccessfully on a dedicated is a Steam issue.
Every single time a mission with no playable slots was selected on the server this showed up in the server log file "SteamAPI initialization failed. "Steam features wont's be accessible!"
I think the problem, or rather the difference might be;
A Server is NOT required to run Steam to host missions, where as we normally always, when gaming or hosting (on our own PC) DO run steam.
It might also account for players getting kicked from time to time with the Steam ticket failure. I believe its possible to run steam also on the server, which might be a quick way to solve the problem, but not sure how to set that up.
