There is a new version of the Ini Patching utility available on the website. This version allows you to fix the recently discovered multiplayer connection issues without needing to know how to do the file editing yourself!
Please note that I am still working on a newer version of the Community Pack. Due to some ongoing complaints, I have made it a goal of mine that the next release of the Community Pack include an option to install only the core vanilla files required to patch the game to CP standards without any additional maps, mods, or other resources. This process will take some time.
