I have a problem with my game variants and the bnet lobby. I created a 4v4 variant for my map, which works perfectly fine when i create a game using the map. However, when i want to join a game with my map via Join Custom Game then the game which is created by bnet defaults to the Custom Variant and creates a 5v3 game...
Is there any way to force battle net to use a specific variant for the games it creates under join custom game ? Or is there a way to influence the teams created by the custom variant ? I tried naming my variant custom but it had no effect.
Well you can force your variant as default (right click in the variant list, select "default"), but so far I didn't find a way to get rid of the "custom" variant. I think it is there so that the melee/vs. AI/custom filter on b.net lists it correctly under "custom".
I think I might have found a way to edit the default "Custom" variant :
Take a look at the "Game UI Data" Data Type in the data editor, on the data tab of the "Default SC2 UI Settings"
I managed to change the "Custom" variant name description, number of players ...
I still haven't found how to limit the lobby to one team and some other things you can do with the others variants.
There seems to be an option to disable "custom", but it does nothing. I hope someone will find a way to disable it !
