No Lobby UI when Joining Multiplayer Games
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whenever I join a Multiplayer server the lobby UI that would allow me to join a squad or team is missing. Without the UI elements I can't even play on the server. Strangely thought the OK still abutton ppears in the bottom right hand corner, and when I press it it starts downloading the data from the server as usual and the UI elements reappear (I still cannot use them though), but as soon as the download finishes an empty text box with an ok button appears and I am disconnected from the server.

I have tried multiple things to fix this such as disconnecting and reconnecting from the server, trying to connect to different servers, and even restarting my client, but nothing has worked. If necessary I may be able to provide screenshots of the problem.

confirmerd started since today

This "ROLE ASSIGNMENT" bug started today for me also, without make any config changes, just magic.

same here started earlier glad to hear im not only 1 with this problem


Posted the issue aswell with screen shot so I'll link it here.
Did check for someone else posting the issue but for some reason this only showed up for me after I posted my own.

Are we all using the developer build? The problem started for me the instant my game was patched to build 0.5.102980 today.

I am pretty sure we are. It must be due to the newest build.

This happens when someone with the development build connects to a server not using the development build and vice versa.

I think it runs better with dev build. But cant test it on high player count server because they dont use dev build.

started for me today. just opted out of the betas on the steam options

was fine when i first started to play but i had other glitches not allowing me to play, i fixed them and it happened to me

This is related to people using latest dev version. For workaround

bumgie how do u fix it with steam?????

basically when the development build is on, my game works fine other than this issue but when i turn it off, the game always crashes when i try to use video settings and opening gear.

Confirmed, started since today too, people can't even join me when i host a server, lobby disappear...

*Edit* Turning off dev beta-build in Steam fix this issue !

PLEASE DON'T CLICK OK! You turn all the people that are already on the server into seagulls!

Just make sure you are running the same build as the server, otherwise everyone will become seagulls.

the thing is, if i dont have the dev build, my game doesnt work, so is there another way to fix this?????

Just come and get dev build. BTW you can easily switch between dev and stable builds anytime you want. Just make a few mouse clicks in steam app.

Please let us know in note section if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Development build. Thank you.

Closing due to lack of information / no response in a long time.
