I have simply not updated yet. I'm very busy with other things so this keeps slipping past other stuff. I have to do some testing for Jason, but more importantly I will be moving house next week so I am busy packing. I will probably be out of a computer for a couple of days as well.
Mikha reported below not being able to initialize the KotS properly, so I gave it a try tonight and can confirm that it seems to hang after the loading screen. We both have the Tirpitz battery installed.
There were two of us flying last night so it must work somehow? Have you got the soldiers mod and the updated v1.1 Tirpitz battery installed? I was hoping that the original mod might work as well, but were there texture changes?
I thought about that as well after posting and will check. The texture was corrected but the filename remains the same. Perhaps one of the config files grew slightly in size? That would be flagged in mods-off mode...
We've always intended to host it again, but just fyi, we abandoned the commercial server and Vander now hosts a server off his fibre connection in his house. I don't know if this would affect player number or the AI mission parameters.
