v1.4 changed my hardcore 8 player co op server to 32 players

v1.4 update changed my hardcore 8 player server co op to 32 players??

it seems to be ignoring Maxplayers=8 in startup?

can anybody help me fix this.

Please post your server settings so we can take a look at those.

similar with mine; just set up a 10 slots server with a provider and now they constantly mail me I need to revise because it automatically changed to 32 ... I did not do a thing regarding slots or players...
