Default Can't join servers/Can't find WADs

Can you guys help me? When I have all the WADs to a server, I try to join it but it keeps on "waiting to download files.." screen forever..

Other thing, there are servers with WADs that I can't find anywhere.

A large portion of those wads in red are actually here on the MB, allow me a moment to link them...

As for the things that aren't linked... well, blame what I like to call the "underground" modding community, there are mods that aren't released publicly on the MB due to being either illegal or unapproved for releases.

EDIT: TO ADD INTO THAT... How come the wads that you did download are in the Doomseeker folder and not in the main SRB2 folder? Using wadseeker isn't exactly useful for SRB2 as there isn't a SRB2 site that supports wadseeker-like sites. Alongside that, SRB2 wads that need to be available for you to play with have to either be in the SRB2 folder or the DOWNLOADS folder inside your SRB2 folder in order to be considered "obtained".

Wow! Thanks so much for linking the files! I got them and was able to join the server I wanted to, now I know how to find certain files needed to join the servers :D

I did not know abot that, and it worked when I've put the files in the folder, thanks for that too!

One more thing, like you said.. why some people choose to host servers with "obscure mods" considering that the SRB2 community is not very big? And what makes certain mods illegal or unapproved?

To simply explain, people make their own mods that they don't/can't publish to the MB, their reasons are well... their reasons or their mod may break Submission Guidelines that would automatically prevent it's release. Check the signatures of a lot of users here, they can link to different websites that have some of those unique wads or Discord servers where users might pass their wads around in.
