There are Times on Quake 3 Arena when you Cant Log onto a Multiplayer Game. I have found the source of 90% of Quake III Arenas Log on Trouble. There usually a Missing patch or Version related problem which is solved below.
Server Uses Protocol 43 etc- When you get a Server Protocol when Logging onto quake III Arena game , thats indirectly telling your the Version they are using. You need to see what Your Point of Release is and thats easy.
1.16 -> 43
1.17 -> 45
1.2x -> 48
1.30 -> 66
1.31 -> 67
1.32 -> 68
For Example if you see Protocol 66 then you CANT play unless its Version 1.30-However I have Changed that to where it does NOT matter anymore. There is a Program called a "Version Switch" which allows you to actually play ANY Point Release or Protocol.
Get the Program to DL and Fix the PROTOCOL Issue:
Thats the Version Switch:
