This error just means that the server is using additional files that you do not have, e.g. new maps or playermodels. You might be able to download these files from the server.
The wiki explains a lot about the downloading system at DO NOT LINK[/b]) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Manual/Automatic_downloading]Manual/Automatic downloading (http://([b).

What you need to do to enable automatic downloading is the following:
  • In the main menu, left click on 'SETUP' (0-menu.jpg)
  • In SETUP, left click on 'GAME OPTIONS' (1-setup.jpg)
  • In GAME OPTIONS, left click on 'Automatic Downloading' so its value changes to 'on' (2-game-options.jpg)

This means that the server you were trying to connect to is actually a Quake 3 server, not an OpenArena server. It should not be listed at all in your in-game server browser, but since it is, you should just ignore it and try other servers instead.

Sometimes the Baseq3 mismatch bug occurs from running partial Q3 mods, i.e. mods that only replace one qvm file
