Each time I go into "Games", the game ends up locking up on me. It is after it requests permission to spectate from a game on the list. I have yet to try with my firewall turned off however. I use Windows XP.

Anyone else seen this?

I tried it with firewall and virus scanner off, no joy.

It doesn't actually crash the computer, just the game itself locks up. When it says "requesting perimssion to spectate" the mouse is locked up and I'm done. I can get to the windows taskbar and alt-tab around, but the screen never updates to other programs, RBT stays frozen on the screen. I have to reboot to get back to normal.

Thanks for any tips.

Hmm, attempt 4 or 5 it worked and it's still working. Odd. I also moved the game to windowed mode so if I lock again I can kill it and just restart.

I had it lock up three or four times myself...might actually be the players connections that are causing the lock-up..I found that the slower connections cause a lot of lag and lock.
Just an idea..

Thanks for the info and sorry about any problems. I am aware of a lockup issue when spectating, I'm looking into it and will hopefully have it solved in the first RBT update.
