Just curious, why does rcbot need updated headers from sven anyway (specifically cbasemonster.h and cbase.h)? If it's for combat code can't you check classifications instead? Does the game just crash if you use an old header?

I know nothing about coding for metamod but I feel like those headers shouldn't really be necessary, or else all metamod plugins would be having this problem.
