Update:
- Re-installed AppID 90 from scratch in a new folder.
- Put all my custom content back-in (maps, etc.)
- Re-enabled MetaMod in liblist.gam file, etc.
- Testing now!

Update-2: (for later reference by anyone else who hits this same issue)

Not sure why, but an in-place upgrade from pre-25th-anniversary version to 25th-anniversary version (while it appeared to update successfully) did not work.

Instead, I had to re-install Half-Life Dedicated Server (HLDS) from SteamCMD using AppID 90 from scratch in a new/blank folder. Once that was working, I had to selectively re-install / restore my custom content (maps, sounds, etc.) and server-side mods (MetaMod, AMX-Mod-X, JK-Botti, Stripper2, etc.).

After a lot of work, its basically all running again!

Did I understand correctly that after the official update of HL1, they will now try to update the accompanying official products? For example Day of Defeat ??

This means that all previous releases and developments in AMXX will require a new architecture and the search for new pdata_offests forwards and natives ?

@TheVaskov I don't think they'll finish making it more muddy

I can confirm the new 25th anniversary update breaks plugins like severians etc. the problem is hamsandwhich with amxx, the tables need to be updated.
The only fix is running hlds with legacy update, and if people get booted to desktop(itís happening on my server occasionally) you will need to tell those people to run legacy half-life client due to the mismatch tables.
Just my observation so far on my testing
