The LDA server runs the stock maps you installed with the CD.. the other servers are modded, so in most cases you need the relevant server pack. without such packs you will get the MAP LOAD FAIL message, or you will get on, hear the sounds but see no map - just a black screen and the text players type to each other.

Which servers are you trying to access...

Ferris,
Any modifications go into a folder called "addons". TM will look for this folder and use what is in it to help load a game.
There is a limit to how many mods TM can "see". I believe the number is close to 100. In order to keep from hitting this number, some people have more than one install of TM on their computer at home. One "stock", one "clan maps" one "armageddon", one "team CTF", one "Anarchy", one "Storm", one "flying tanks and cookie dough". These are some of the mods made for TM and all are excellent (though I haven't played the last one yet). Some people don't like having multiple installs, but maintain more than one addon folder. TM only "reads" the folder titled ADDONS, so it is safe to name the folders different things (like "storm", "FT&CD", "Anarchy", "teamCTF", etc and rename the folder needed to be plain "addons" as needed. Your choice.
What I do is I keep a folder on my desktop of all downloads, sorted by "maps" (with subfolders for "race", "clan", "ddm"), team CTF, Anarchy, flags, weapons, other TM stuff. I then unzip what I need to the addons folder as I need it. I routinely forget to rename my addons folder and unzip something that was not meant to be in that folder, so I have a way to easily start fresh if I need to.
Good luck with finding what you need.
