How do I install Master Server Patch (2.0)?

Hi

I have attepted to download Master Server Patch (2.0) and I tried to extract the zip files into my main AVP2 folder after they had actuelly downloaded. I replaced the old Master Server Patch version with this new 2014 version. However the patch doesn't seem to be working because when I enter the game and try to find servers, nothing comes up. No servers are listed at all. Once the files/folders had been extracted and were located within the main AVP2 folder I even tried to click the 'AVP2SMInstall' application and followed the prompts but still nothing works.

So have I installed the new patch incorrectly? What am I doing wrong?

UPDATE

Well I managed to get the 26 or so servers listed by opening the game via My Computer. Opening the game via the main AVP2 folder still does not work.

Anyway, as I said I now have some servers displayed HOWEVER regardless of which server I try to enter it keeps automatically booting me out. Each and every time it says:

DISSCONNECTED: SOME GAME RESOURCES DIFFER FROM THE SERVER

Does anyone know why this is happening?

The message,

'DISSCONNECTED: SOME GAME RESOURCES DIFFER FROM THE SERVER'

Means.. you're trying to join a server that is running a modification (which you don't have)

What's the server's name?

Hi

Yes I know what the message means, however it happens with EVERY server I try to join, its not just 1 or 2 servers its every single one of them. It's as through I am missing a modification that ALL the servers have hence why I keep getting dissconneted.

If I uninstall and then reinstall the game do I have to download or re-download anything else other then the Master Server Patch 2.0 in order to get the online multiplayer working?

No not downloaded, I've been using the traditional game disc ever since I started playing AVP2 many years ago.

Anyway thank you for your help. I re-downloaded and installed the MP Map update and the 1.0.9.6 which did the trick, the game works perfectly now.

It's good to know AVP2 is still alive and kicking, hopefully for many more years to come!

So I downloaded the 5 files for the game.

The game itself,
the update to 1096
the SP map
the MP map
and the MS installer 2.0

I ran all of those in that order and got to play a few matches, but then got kicked out for lack of resources.  The specific maps were quarantine and alesserfate.  I looked around but didn't find any other files to download other than UMP2 and AJL. 

I think it was the TBBC server if anyone has any info for me, that'd be awesome.

The server was probably running a mod or custom map you didn't have.
