While RustBuster has It's own version to check, should It change the version of rust?
This means that only those people can join who are clearly using the updated rust.

I was also thinking that if the original steam files were changed steam might update rust itself again. Ew

Depends if you can spit a custom message back telling them where to get the client anticheat / client update.

RustBuster cannot work independently from the client version (at least 1069 Protocol Version)?

What is the latest Rust Legacy Version on steam? 12.03.2015?

Well I'm not too sure if I understand this correctly, but if you are talking about as in your client needing a update to keep up with the server then I think that should be up to the server to let everyone know to update their client. There can be many reasons for this, if lets say the server will not be able to be updated for another couple of days, then the players wont be able to join the server they love. Another reason is what if something goes wrong, that will affect everyone rather then just a few servers who updated and informed the rest of the community to wait for a further update. As in the "main" one that I think is gonna be made, that should just list the server updated for the current version of the client and servers who are not. But the "personal clients" I think, should be up to the servers to manage. Now if I am not understanding this correctly, my opinion might change entirely.

Which Resources would RustBuster use to update the Rust Client? What happens when you are using a cracked Rust Client version?
Currently we modify the Assembly csharp + rustbuster dll. Cracked? Nothing. Same files would go on, I will definetely have to make a link that which client files Im using. If I want to make this compatible I need people to use the 2015 03 files. Thats why I was asking if i should modify the game version so people can notice that something changed. This is good for versioning but RustBuster will have Its own one too. The dosadvantage on this that older clients wouldnt be able to join up. But as usual the messages eill be there to notify them.

Would love to see a project progress thread ;), I am very keen to help support it and gain momentum on this with other server owners who also wish to keep up to date on your progress.

I would of said github it but I know your direction for the project :), however any sub modules feel free to put up for contribution.

Im all done but some little things remaining. I had to rewrite the SSL part because Microsofts API is buggy on mono. Now the only problem I face is that when I try to write to the stream the connection disconnects.

Hey may just mean a general process killer, so say if autohotkey is running or something like that to be watching for the process and to kill it.

I do not agree. Experimental Rust almost every day launches new updates and this will force you to work too hard on plugin, module and other codes ... Bad idea
