5.) This server is running an incorrect version of the server side application. You cannot play on this server.

Issue/Error
Connecting to the server the following message (or similar) appears inside the game before entering the lobby:
This server is running an incorrect version of the server side application. You cannot play on this server.

This is most likely a problem with the player Character data/files.

How to fix this
Depending on the following…
1.) Only one or a few players are getting this message
2.) All players get this message
…you can do the following:

1.) Check the character data in table Character_DATA or cache files for these players if there is something wrong. If you cannot find anything try to delete the player/character data (db and cache) of these players and see if that solves the issue. The inventory and humanity of these payers is then gone but maybe they can connect again.
2.) It seems to be a more general issue. Maybe the cache files or database entries are corrupted. But it is more likely an issue with the start gear you defined at the start of writer.pl. Check if there is a bracket or a quotation mark missing.

# Start inventory of player
INVENTORY => ‘[[“ItemFlashlight”,”ItemMap”],[“ItemBandage”]]’,
BACKPACK => ‘[“DZ_TerminalPack_EP1”,[],[]]’,
MODEL => ‘”Survivor2_DZ”‘

Brackets and quotation marks need to be like in the example above.
