It'd be a neat opportunity to work on/use our own (portable) client though. I was updating that to support 1.298 (a while ago), but 1.098 obviously requires even less effort. The only problem being I doubt it could be updated fast enough to support newer clients, a lot of that stuff is annoyingly awkward to implement. Oh well, one can dream. ^_^
Anyway: probably, though, a 1.098 server would attract far less attention than a newer server would (even with the prospect of later expansions); I really can't imagine a 1.098 server building a bigger population than, say, a 2.0xx (or whatever) server. At the end of the day, a high population is a crucial element for the longevity the server (esp. for farm servers), so meh.
I like the thought of 1.098, and I think at least we could do it without much of an issue (idk about the requester), but I don't think it'd be great in the long run starting from 1.098 or even 1.298 for that matter. I think it'd have to start from where newer content was available; like ROFD.
I think this is a great thread that any owner can utilise, not just the requester. Great job Kallop. :-)
Events were, however, left to them to implement as we'd planned to, and long since have, written up a sensible event system to handle these (and potentially custom) events with minimal effort, so I can't speak for other servers' events. If they're anything like AKUMA's/katana(tr)'s though, they're hilariously bad. XD
Little bit rambly, but my point was that I doubt cospre items (or sets, or Krowaz items...) are an issue for any server using newer files... since we implemented those for them already, probably over a year ago now even. You can count on them! >_<"
I think this sums up the whole ko community, and what will probably happen.

It needs to happen in the summer if it wants the most possible players
It's a good thing OSKO is a terrible ran server and will most likely launch a new server three times this summer.
George is right, I saw somebody's signature long time ago on this forum saying "Mgame doesn't steal your money, you let them take it" which is the same thing among all those farm servers. Aventually it's gonna close, they all do. But it's not cause server is bad or poorly setup it's because there is so many private servers, that people are use to go to new ones to get the new beggining thrill. The percentage of the KO community that likes this "new thrill" as I reffered to it it's way outnumbering people that would prefer staying on 1 server and continue playing on it. That's why those that enjoy and stick to 1 server are in the end forced to try out a new one cause the population drops. It's a paradox really ><.
That's why I'm trying to come up with pvp formula server with some bits of farming added. That won't be to hard I suppose, the hardest part will be building a community that would stick to it. I am very fond of the old 15xx sexyko to be honnest it had longitivity, no matter how much some hated the PVP style of sexyko. And donations gathered from cospree items are enough to keep server up from month to month.
or not necessary even that specific version, but a server with people committed to support and stay there despite the challenges they might face and owners should keep game entertaining.
EDIT: The reason SexyKO didn't die that fast was because babashoppers can't become to OP, like take Knight Kingdom as an example: People babashop so many trina's or shadow pieces to get their raptors+11 and their krowaz rev +5/6/7/8 whatever, this scares people away and make them quit. In SexyKO you could buy rev scrolls to look more ''cool'' than others, cospre's for the little extra's same for pathos and the chd's and shit from PUS were also obtainable in-game, there was no WAY TO OP babashopper that made everyone quit because he was just not-killable. Think about it, and you'll see it works out for whoever is gonna create a server like sexyreplay did.
I think the major issue is the PUS and it shouldn't exist for more than allowing people look more 'cool' as you said , but as you probably know yourself that current server owners are all about making profit and that's the main issue. They care about the server for first few days and then it's lack of interest towards the players which leads to inactivity and eventually the server is dead.
Any here wanna try the professionalko?? i need to know if this server can have a lot players online . To the private server players like it?
