Re: Host kick JUST before turn 3 starts

I tried this only once! (don't take it as an absolute remedy to this bug)
I was going to play a FFA with a couple of others, and the game just before had booted me, and messed up their game, and yadda yadda yadda yadda .....
So, to not be crazy by trying the same thing and expecting different results, I asked them to not join the fresh game until 10-20 seconds after I started it. (To be fair, of course I didn't hit 'et' before they got there.) The result was a game where I was not booted (I got defeated by an AI within a few turns instead).
I think it will be my practice from now on to say "okay" to players waiting in the lobby after the turn-timer first starts. It will be a bit more difficult to organize a game, but after awhile when most now the dilly-yo, it won't be so difficult.
Please try the same tactic and post the results in this thread. This bug must be squash! because the last thing I want is is to be hosting a game and then I get booted from the server faster than superman can say "damn!" (Corone thinks he would say that normally. What do you think? Heh heh).
