Metalforge Server and Client Compatibility
The Metalforge server is running Crossfire v1.12-beta-r17660M which was released in March 2012.
Since then there have been numerous updates (2,870 and counting) in regards to GTKv2 client, JX Client, server, maps, archetypes and related game components such as sound and metaserver.
Current releases of the GTKv2 and JX Client are compatible with the server, but some functions do not work.
Critical Messages & Message windows or tabs in the GTKv2 client
The Metalforge server does not support filtering Messages and Critical Messages to the respective windows sections of tabs in the GTKv2 client. This is not a problem or configuration within the client, the server simply does not have the code to support such a function included within it.
More to be added when such issues are identified.
