[BUG] Play randomly restarts while playing

#1
During play, my character will restart like I have just entered the game.

e.g. I've been playing DM for the last 10min. and suddenly I'll disappear and restart (similar to when I'm killed, but instead) like I've just joined the game, and all of my stats/frags are back at zero.

If I'm playing CTF, it will say, "Space Ace is now on the Red/Blue team" like I've just joined the game.

Sometimes it will happen five times in one game.  Sometimes just once.  Other times not at all.

I tried different servers, but seems to be the same on each server.
I reinstalled the game.  I installed the autobuild version.  No difference.

That sounds like warmup.  Not every server has it but check if the servers you're seeing this on say "F4 to ready up" or something like that on your HUD.  If everyone readies up once the match has started, you can start the match again (and again, and again) but most won't do that.

On my server the warm-up time is 2 minutes in vanilla, and 10-20 minutes depending on game mode in XPM.
I tried making it as noticeable and blatant as possible i.e the server prints a message that there is a warm-up period per match start since people also don't notice they're not supposed to spawn with 100a and all weapons.
Xonotic exists for a long time and low player count is the proof that nobody wants to play Xonotic since it is a bad game by default.

It's not warmup, because everyone else keeps playing and retains their points etc. and I say, 'what the hell happened?!' and they have no idea.  Besides, I've been playing for a long time and know the difference.

Is there anything suspicious in console? Try developer 1 to show additional info.

Anybody else on Sierra? I wonder whether the OS changed something (including that you can't use your Fn keys)

Could be a change to the latest OS update, but it (and the the F-key problem) started happening after I updated Xonotic, not the OS.

I don't know what "developer 1" is.

Open console (SHIFT+ESC) and type "developer 1", it'll show additional info. Then you can use "condump <filename>" to save the output to a file in ~/.xonotic/data and upload it here so we can look for anything suspicious in the log.

OK, I'll try that next time it happens.  Thanks.

Okay, it keeps happening. Really f*cking annoying. Really little point in playing when it keeps resetting mid-game.
I tried doing "developer 1" and that seemed to work.
edit:  found the file.  I had to use "which config.cfg" to find the location.

Okay, Okay, it got figured out, by Mario.  It was a mix up in the keybinding  And probably my own damned fault somehow!!!  Jeez.
