227h client crashes when joining 227i server

not a critical issue I wouldnt think but I was able to reproduce this with a 227h client joining my 227i server.



I'm going to delete that clients unreal folder, re-install u1 classic from scratch, and then upgrade it to 227h just as a test.

ok, I was able to reproduce the same error on a new install of U1, patched to 225f, and then to 227h.  However that same 227h client when patched to 227i ran just fine.  Just a fyi, this may be a known issue, and again possibly irrelevant as the goal is for peeps to upgrade to 227i in any case.

it was my understanding that  due to how unrealintegrity is made ,  its not possible to use older versions of 227 to join  newer versions , becuase the checksums and native files would technicly be differnt. also becuase for security reasons , exploit fixes may have been added in the new version that could still be exploited in the old versions.. or somthing like that.

And due to the conformance tables, old versions of 227 are generally not supported. It's either that or not support non-227 clients, so...

Yes, I had just thought I read somewhere that 227i should allow 227h clients.  No biggie, just something I ran into.

it sort of can , because its very similar.  I tried and it will work , if you disable integrity , you could get away with it , but it not recommended.

Basically anything is said. 227h works without problems on 227i servers, except integrity. Due to the changes in UnrealIntegrity the older clients can't be checked anymore with 227i. As always, 227h became deprecated and although working in general it is always recommended to update the client. For max security AllowOldClients should be disabled anyway, since ClientChecking for older clients (224,225,226) is limited Smiley
