Ahh, if it's the buffer size... That can be fixed easily enough.

> The downgrade of genspkt.c on continuum has caused a few

> When there are lots of observers, people with one column

> that don't work.
> The problem with stats updating has been re-introduced.  It

> displayed after login.
> And there is a bug where player flag packets are never sent.
> All these bugs were fixed in the latest (like a year old!) version.
> The problem with full updates messing up COW users is not 
> caused by genspkt.c. 
> The version 1.20 that continuum is using just doesn't exhibit 
> it because the no flag packet bug covers it up.  The real 
> problem is that the increase to 32 players made the full 
> update packet larger than a 768 byte buffer COW uses. 
> The solution is to increase the buffer size in COW, not add 
> bugs to the server that make the problem disappear for a bit.
> If you are going to release a now cow, how about fixing this bug?
