Some people 'tweak' their usersettings.con file to improve hit registration, although it's never been proven that this actually works.
Because some server admins consider this an unfair advantage, they run MD5-checks for stock files, including usersettings.con
The problem with this is that it's very unreliable, as there are many more factors that can cause the usersettings.con file to be altered; it's possible that the file is different on the deluxe version of the game.
Basically, if your version of usersettings.con differs from what the server running these checks considers 'normal', you will get kicked.
As this only happens on a handful of servers that run these extra checks, all I can recommend is contacting the server admins and talking to them about it; updates often get released for this check to reduce the chances of an innocent player being kicked.
This is exactly why PBB does not run MD5-checks on these stock files

When i tried to execute bf2142 clan mod as administrator i got an error message (="cant find bf2142.exe"). I said "oh somethings wrong over here". I installed in this order: bf2142+patch 1.50 full+clan mod 3.0+clan mod 3.02. Then a teammate told me he was able to execute clan mod as administrator and told he installed clan mod 3.02 FULL (not 3.0+3.02). So i desinstalled clan mod and installed 3.02 Full. Now, when i look at clanmod shortcut properties i realize the destine has changed (before ended with clanmod.bat and now with clanmod.exe) and i am able to execute as administrator. Besides, now i have a folder call "Launcher" that i hadnt before
So the fact is i still got to check if i have fixed the kicks, but now i have my usersetings file (i repeat, before, i coulnd find usersettings file in its place , C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield 2142 Deluxe Edition\mods\clanmod\settings): simply, that file no existed in clanmod, only at bf2142).

Let me know how it works out so others can possibly benefit from it as well

I doubt on my own asertion. I mean, is this way that things happens or usersettings file is located in bf2142 folder and clanmod folder, despite the fact u have never executed clan mod??
Because if i am right, something went wrong (when i got installed 3.2+3.02, not 3.02 full) and the integrity of the usersettings file was not ok (or even was not copy at all to the folder "settings" in "clanmod" folder). So, when they run MD5-checks for stock files, i got an unexpected kick.
P.S.: About talking to a server admin: its very difficult to convince an admin (even more in clan mod competitions) that you have changed nothing in usersettings file when you get several kicks...
