I've been playing the latest version of this mod and the 40 player servers are absolutely amazing. They really polished this mod since I last played. Absolutely wonderful.

It means that some of the scripts differ form the ones the server uses. Make sure you've got 2.2 (full install), the 2.21 patch installed and that you're trying to join a 2.21 server.

Also, there's a few servers that run non-standard scripts for testing purposes. These update quite frequently and unfortunately this makes people not able to join.
