you could patch the library?
in the hours i while away waiting for builds on my suck machine, i poked around a little bit more at the gamespy layer. the
problem is that there is a hard limit for the amount of data that gets sent for the handling of an 'old query' in the version of
the library we're using.
nobody else seemed to have done this, but the place where things get cut off is at position 2048, an odd # in the non-number
theory sense, and not coincidentally the gamespy hard limit.
we're 'not allowed' to modify gamespy code, so that's out, but can you guys just use whatever the 'new query' format is?
