Handling obsolete IWADs
I have become aware that there are people playing Doomsday online with Doom versions <1.9. Because of this, those of us with up-to-date iwads cannot play online with these people. These iwads are probably pirated as Id sells the up-to-date versions of Doom.

I think that there should be a proper warning dialog that informs the client that the server is using a different IWAD. Maybe we could even determine if the server has an older or newer IWAD.
I think we should look into allowing clients to connect with no regard to the IWAD, but in case there are some errors in the gameplay it must be the client who "suffers" from it; the server or other players must not be affected.
This is one thing to think about for Beta 7.
