After some digging and tinkering I think I got it.
STTMINUS seems to be a part of the WAD, a Lump if I got it right- or part of a Lump- having to do with the status bar...
Old versions of the DOOM.WAD dont have the STTMINUS in the Lumps...
Even though I updated the wads I guess Odamex relies on the .WAD files that are placed in its own directory...
Placing an Updated version of the Wad seems to allow me to connect to the server I was using to test the error I was getting...
 (I renamed the copy I placed in the Odamex directory DOOM.WAD to match the names I saw listed in the "IWAD" column in the Client's Server List, as the Updater takes DOOM.WAD and Creates the Updated Version then calls it "udoom.wad"- not sure if this effects anyhting its just what I did...)
Hope This Helps Populate the Issue a little more for Anyone who is having the issue- it means in short that you don't have the right version (or have it in the right place)...
Thanks Yall!
Now I just gotta find some Players....
Love (nohomo)

Alright, Heloo yall - This is CaptainOvaltine, Doin mah best to understand the process of configuring Doom, and all its Source Ports and Clients and stuff, so it will play on my machine hassel free.

I am tackling the Multiplayer today, and I have found the Version Patch Tool and all that good stuff...
Using either Odamex Client or Dooomseeker I seem to be getting this error and I cant find anything online Related to Multiplayer and Odamex regarding it- so I am Asking for help in understanding the issue.

W_getnumforname STTMINUS not found!

Now- This may be a noob issue- but I would appreciate the help. The set up for these clients is a little Cryptic, throwing you right at some startrek controls with all sorts of strange stuff - being that I grew up during the age where all this Online play was really technical and cutting edge, I have only used Xbox to play online- because it is more or less fool proof...

Thats my Bio thanks for reading-
Please Help me and hopefully other folks understand what it is that Odamex needs from me so I can maybe shoot some demons with some of yall one day!
Thanks -

Thank you both. I remember having some trouble with wxwidgets before this error. Seems I need several packages updated before I can build certain apps.

Friends, do not be afraid! Though we can no longer see Jesus in chapter 13 of Jacob's Ladder, that does not mean he is not still there.

Even the great Borat Sagdiyev became afraid on his journey..

It looks like you're using wx version 2.8, which is pretty old at this point.  The launcher requires 3.0 or newer to build.

Can you try current SVN trunk? Also what version of wxWidgets are you using? Thanks.

What is your username and what does it mean?
DemonSphere, was originally "DreaMSphere" But that sounded to soft for a game like doom. One of my more original nicks was Login66, that as because at the time I created my account there were 65 players online, I was the 66th.
What was the first doom you ever played? (Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom, Doom64, Doom3)
Doom shareware.
What was the first (unofficial) source port you ever played and when?
That would probably be Legacy Doom somewhere around 2001
What was the first (unofficial) pwad you ever played and when?
Now this I'm not sure of. I remember a wad my dad played that was some sort of floating sky base. One I remember well is the Alien TC ad for Doom. around 1999/2000
What is your favorite game mode?
That's easy. Duels.
If you are in a clan, what clan and why are you in it?
I'm in CD on ZD have been for a very long time, since 2005? 2006? Maybe earlier. GE on Odamex and because there needed to be a more diverse set of clans on Odamex.
What is your fondest memory of multiplayer Doom?
Probably playing CTF with my clan back in the day when Teamspeak was always populated. A memory that has stuck with me though was playing Coopbuild with Thunder and a few others in the morning.

Jacob might be interpreted as meaning "holder of the heel" or "supplanter."

What was the first doom you ever played? (Doom, Doom 2, Final Doom, Doom64, Doom3)

DOOM shareware was passed around middle school in 1993 on 3.5" floppy disks. I didn't own a computer but was able to play DOOM on two friends' computers at their houses. I was drawn in by the unique music, sounds, environment, and game play. I always tried to fit in a game of DOOM when I could. During my freshman year in H.S., I was able to get a dose of DOOM at the end of every school day for the 2nd half of the semester when I took typing. I finished the exercises early every day and the teacher let my friend and I reboot the 486 DX33 machines to play single player DOOM. During my sophomore year (1995) my parents bought a computer which allowed me to start exploring DOOM on my own terms. I played single player DOOM and DOOM II as well as multiplayer DOOM II with H.S. acquaintances over the modem. It was often difficult to setup smooth running games over the modem. I recall spending time tweaking configs, dialing and re-dialing in search of a solid connection, and having issues with playing against people using DOOM for MAC. Soon after, I learned about bulletin board systems (BBS) and began playing more organized duel dm, 4 player ffa, and dog tag (old school 2v2 team game) on the BBS. While that took place ~1995, I have since reconnected with several players from the BBS including Katana Man (Duke 3d world player) and FooRaw. (BBS system operator) I became real life friends with several of the players from the BBS in those days.

What was the first (unofficial) source port you ever played and when?

I believe the first DOOM port that I played was DOOM95, a port created by Microsoft in 1995 to help push Windows 95 as a gaming platform. I don't recall playing any other ports in that era. (However I do recall the many versions of DOOM and DOOM II that floated around) Did you know that Microsoft may have considered buying up ID Software back when DOOM was installed on more computers than Windows 95? By the way, DOOM95 never caught on with me. I was highly sensitive to the differences between DOOM95 & vanilla DOOM.

What was the first (unofficial) pwad you ever played and when?

I am not sure what the first PWAD I ever played was. I do recall playing PWADS that were distributed on CD-ROMS or the WWW in single player mode. After I became a BBS member, I began to play classic PWADS you still see played today such as Danzig, Dweller, and Dwango. I am sure that we played some COOP wads as well but I don't recall any names. ODIUM rings a bell - I'll have to look that up. Reading thick books at the book store while my mother was shopping inspired me to learn how to create my own PWADS early on with tools like WADED and NWT. I made a D5M1 FFA edit and a 2-4 player FFA map from scratch using WADED.

What is your favorite game mode?

My favorite game mode is probably duel deathmatch. There is a player named DemonSphere who has helped me get back in touch with my roots as a duel DM player and learn the ropes of modern duel DM play, which is slightly different than OS due to features that modern ports offer like aliasing. The reason that I like duel deathmatch is because I see it as a 1-1 psychological challenge. Every split second counts and every thought and movement impacts the outcome. It is so with any game mode, but perhaps it is more apparent in duel deathmatch. It's interesting to me to see how players use strategy. I think that a good duel deathmatch player has to be a chameleon in ways, always sensing their opponent's state, approach, style, actions in situations, reactions to situations, etc. and adapting to them accordingly, like water over rocks.

If you are in a clan, what clan and why are you in it?

I am not in a clan. I run -=FATE=- but it is not a clan. FATE is a "will or principle or determining cause by which things in general are believed to come to be as they are or events to happen as they do" such as FATE 001 and FATE 002.

What is your fondest memory of multiplayer Doom?

My fondest memories of multiplayer DOOM are the times during which there was fantastic competitive multiplayer action paired with fun and friendly social interactions. In the days of the RAG BBS, players connected socially through in game text chat, BBS forum posts, phone calls, and for some, in person meetings. There was an annual RAG FEST that offered players a chance to meet each other in person each year. Several of us became real life friends. Some players that I became friends with on the BBS included Blizzard, Devastator, and Moogle. My fondest recent memories of DOOM are also of times when there was great competition paired with great social interaction. I have enjoyed chatting with and getting to know players like DemonSphere who take their game seriously but know how to have fun and play nice.

I remember you DJ, Krash, Katana Man, Alice in Chains, Blizzard, Devastator, Moogle, FooRaw, Buzzo, & Interceptor.
