Hi I am after joining a minetest server I have version 0.4.dev20120122-1

The Mods I have are as follows:
mesecons mod

Has anyone got a server available that I can join with these specs?

Wheter you can join a server or not only depends on your version. The mods textures are automatically downloaded from the server and the mod itself only runs on the server.

Thanks jeija I didnt know that!

People keep posting about joining their server but no-one seems to be including what version they have.

The assumed version should be a 0.4-devXXXXXXXXXX otherwise, the post should say so.

Generally, unknown versions should be the latest dev.

...Can you explain what are you issues ?
"Have correct software version and try to connect to a matchable public server version" .. are the issues alike ? ..

I enter the host id and the port number and it tries to connect but time's out everytime I try.

It's becoming slightly annoying and I am thinking of going back to minecraft at this rate!!

This is frustrating because your map looks amazing!

after connection press "K" (for free move) then press "SPACE BAR" to get altitude ... to see it is not better ...
But what your describing looks odd ... may be you have an issue with your internet connection ... may be a too low bandwidth ...
