Yes, but you obviously need 2 people playing.

Not sure what happened, apparently trying to join in one game didn't work between two others playing XD Might try it again at some point, but yeah.

I believe you can't join in on a game when it already started.

Yeah, in this case it was one that was hosted and I was in the lobby as a spec. Tbh, I was alt+tabbed at the time and didn't see what the error was XD

This could mean many things. One of them could be that you had not started up the correct version of the mod (Which I highly doubt, but w/e. Could be.) Or that with Alt+Tab-ing you made the game crash. Which is rather common.
Other than that: Use "-luatrace" at the end of your shortcut.

You need to confirm that you intend to keep watching, because the spectator option is basically a blank race.

In short: You spawn with no production ship(s). This means that the game automatically renders you defeated.
Ofcourse, if you have set the thingy to total annihilation, it will then let you live. But you spawn with nothing. Thus still render as defeated. Thus becoming a "spectator".

Yeah, apparently the game never actually loaded up, though. Or something
