Original story (published on August 21, 2023) follows:

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre players are reporting an issue with lobby invite codes where they are exceeding 6 characters.

A lobby invite code is a special combination of letters that is used to invite others to join a specific game session in a video game. Players share these codes to play together in the same match.

However, some players are reporting that they are getting a 7-character code for lobby invite. However, the field where they’ve to enter the code only has room for a 6-character code.

As a result, gamers are unable to input the code correctly and enter the lobby. Frustrated by this, many gamers have taken to Twitter, now X, to raise their concern.

Here are some reports for reference:
