Bigger Lobby Mod Bugs
While the Bigger Lobby Mod offers a game-changing experience, there are occasional bugs to be aware of:
Stability and Performance: Modder bizzlemip is actively updating the mod to improve stability and performance, but expect performance drops when exceeding eight players, occasionally leading to crashes.
Prior Issues: Some issues, such as game time discrepancies, enemy spawning problems, and match-ending troubles, were reported before the 2.2.6 update. However, ongoing patches are gradually ironing out these concerns.
