AMX Mod was originally created by OLO in 2002, it has been actively developped till the 0.9.9 version (2003/2004 years), then it became in a slack state after this time.
Some programmers (BAILOPAN, SniperBeamer…), have estimated the AMX Mod state was too much problematic and uncertain (for the probable future evolutions), so they decided to create the “AMX Mod X” project.
To do so, they made that we call in the coding stuff, a “fork”. That means, they basically used all the source code of AMX Mod 0.9.9 as a base to their program. To resume, they copy/pasted the whole program…
After this, they modified and changed lot of parts of the original code to satisfy their ideas and objectives, then they have programmed lot of functions (forwards/natives…) and modules, with the main goal to purpose a large choice to the plugins coders.
But, the default base plugins, which are essential for the users in a terms of administration, and the fact they allow to easily manage the third-party plugins, haven’t been trully upgraded and so, are still “behind” the current AMX ones.
Meanwhile within the AMX Mod development, since it wasn’t totally abandonned, the developers from the past (Aleksander “OLO” Naszko, Julien “dJeyL” Laurent, [email protected], T(+)rget, KleeneX, m0gely, DoubleDoom), worked so much on the “famous” 2005 version. The choice to modify the version style in an “annual type” has been chosen to notify a distinction with AMX Mod X (BAILOPAN ‘n misc didn’t really used their brains to change the original name and create their own… adding a “X” at the end was probably did in order to represent the symbol of an “evolution”… at through the users’s minds).
The AMX Mod developers they had more targeted to work on the quality and the usage comfort of the default plugins provided (instead of being focused on the duplicated and huge number of functions for coders), so that’s why AMX Mod is basically (without taking into account the third-party plugins), for the users, much better and complete than AMXX (unlike lot of people is thinking…).
Because of this dead state from the past, unfortunately, this 2005 version didn’t received the success expected, because lot of users and coders had already migrated under AMXX, make them back to AMX became so hard…
After this, one developer, [email protected], continued alone the development, he released the 2006.1 and 2006.2 versions and the famous 2006.3 version, on the one he had implemented lot of internal optimizations available under AMXX.
This last is approximately similar as an optimization level, to AMX Mod X 1.7.5.
Afterward, he given up the “boat”, it was the end of AMX Mod.
Between 2009 ‘n 2010, some fans (including the old developer “[email protected]”, helvat and myself), decided to make revive the project, with a different perspective, close to the old development way of the old versions, but at the same time really different than how it’s under AMXX.
The main goal is to make available to you, all the third-party plugins with a design, a stereotype and a similar quality to the ones of the basic default package. We are looking for to privilege the quality instead of quantity (avoid “all and anything piece of shit”).
All of this, is so far to be available under AMXX and never will.
The AMX Mod 2010.1 version, released at the end of this year (2010), signed the first step forward about the “AMX Mod resurrection” (step #1).
Thereafter, a very long and fastidious job has been performed on the third-party plugins, this basically explains why all of that took so long.
In 2013, May, 1st, the official website was back, complete and fully bilingual (English/French)! That was the step #2 of the come back! Finally!
Today, the forum (step #3), is back too, with a similar design to the old “djeyl.net” one. It has been rebuilded like this in order to push forward the “nostalgic” grace and also the old-school style, to remember the past to some people…
I invite you to read this topic highly detailled, where any sentence is gonna to show you all the positive points of this addon, currently, and of course, inform you about the objectives and avantages it includes (including non-Steam support, etc.). Which is not explained in this current topic.
The original AMX Mod project started in 2002 authored by Aleksander “OLO” Naszko. While the same scripting language (Small) was used as its predecessor admin tool, Admin-Mod, the style itself is very different, most likely to correct various confusing or inadequate design decisions. For example:
Focus was on modifying the game, rather than only providing admin tools
Easier native syntaxes
Easier string manipulation
Greater flexibility for hooking game events and commands
Greater flexibility for manipulating engine/game
Module support for developers to extend native language
Easier syntax in general (for example, dropping semicolon requirement)
AMX Mod was originally coupled with dJeyL’s “MetaSmall”, although this was eventually dropped and the two combined into one binary.
Around January of 2004, various high-ranking members of the AMX Mod community decided the project was in an inactive and dead state. Neither OLO nor dJeyL could be contacted, and Felix “SniperBeamer” Geyer decided to found a continuation project named AMX Mod X.
