Not Online for public right now just friends testing everything I will not be releasing this for very long time anyways + gives me time to save up to get a way better pc to put this on.
^ That was my point. If it's not public, you likely won't come across any crashes as there's nobody looking to exploit (and crash) the server.
I'd be very, very careful - the packet buffer overflow exploit alone can give attackers access to compromise your box.
Honestly, using the 1.098 files is a really naive move; 1.298 was bad... 1.098 is much worse. Back then cheaters were less bothersome. Now that these issues are being uncovered, who can really resist exploiting servers? Hell, there's a large number of exploits I've come across that have *not* yet been abused in 1.298 & 1.310... but I have no doubt that they will.
Going BACK quite a number of versions to a way more vulnerable EXE... ugh. Insanely inadvisable unless you're willing to spend the time and effort into securing it. You can't just make them go away by waving your magic wand and wishing for it to be so (or ignoring the issue, as seems to be happening).
Regardless, best of luck to you. I hope you do in fact realise that 1.098 can ultimately be a lot more trouble than you think it is and can, ultimately, resolve the many many many many MANY issues that stand in your path.
I saw one of these I forgot where, but it was a turkish server.
well no matter what kinda server you put online you have hackers cheaters etc. I have had ran 2 servers in the past had no problems with hackers either and on these same files I have had over 100 users online on a shittier pc then what i am using now and I had dsl now i have cable but not to worried about putting it online if someone wants to play it I will be more then happy to givem info to my panel i have online to make an account and dl my cleint which is already uploaded.
I will send you a pm soon if you want to check it out
