Bug Description

Observed on Chico's Styball with are maximum number of players (max=3) per Team, with beta.armagetronad.net Build from Jan 13 2009 (Windows).
Let's say you're on team "gold" then the team menu does not offer an option to join "team blue" (if the other team is full...).
This is broken behaviour because you can't swap with another player to rebalance team fairness.

Also the "team"-options are only updated after a death (or similar syncing-events) which confuses me, if the option is not accessible but valid.

Suggestion: Show all options for all teams but with different colors according to status. e.g. Team has a free spot, then use the normal color. Team is full then use a grey or disabled, but still selectable color/option. Not sure if it's a good idea to reorder the list of teams according to "join status" (alphabetical might be the most confortable one?).

Good idea, the menu items for teams you can't join right now are now transparent (or darker). Nay on the sorting, though, we're on 'important bugfixes only' mode.

Changed in armagetronad:
assignee: nobody → z-man
status: New → Fix Committed

Your suggestion is the intended behaviour.

At least on trunk, that said.
