THIS IS PROBABLY UNSTABLE. IF YOU'RE HAVING 'RANDOM' CRASHING ISSUES WITH IT, DON'T USE IT.

What is this?
This replaces CreateEdict on your server with a 'Custom' implementation ensuring no edicts are left unused before going into the higher indexes. This bug (of running out of edicts when you have 1000 free) is present in every Source 2009 game, CS: Global Offensive does something similar to this MM:S Plugin. This Plugin has saved me, and I wish someone found this out earlier.

Installation
Pick your engine and throw it into a CEF folder under addons. Then throw the CEF.vdf file into your metamod folder. Or change the CEF.vdf file and do whatever you want with it, it's up to you.

I've only included a build for Linux Source 2009. If you build for another game, let me know and I'll update the OP to your post.

Will this have a benefit to a non-developer, as a server owner?

To expand on it further, the game server crashes when it runs out of edict/entity indexes. This plugin tries to prevent that.

1.1.2 is up. I highly suggest everyone updates as I introduced two bugs in the previous build thinking I was being intelligent at the time.

Included a Windows build for OrangeBox Valve (Source 2009) and L4D2 Windows, thanks to Dr!fter.
