    Considering many messages we have with "don't work" when using old client + new server and new client + old server… shouldn't Registry list only compatible servers?

    i.e. for old clients that do not identify themselves (I haven't checked actually) it should work as it is today. If client says something like "I'm Gen 5 client" Registry should reply only with gen 5 servers.

    Or at least specify Generation in server list.

    Posting in "Suggestions" as I hope someone other than me will do it (^ ^)

    Yes, we could do different ports for different generations -- and then just need to run two registries on the same computer.

    And then gen 5 clients would see no server in the registry... As none is up.

    mmmmh =/

    When the next round of testing starts, sure.
