[SOLVED] - I don't see how to mark this as such, but this is all fixed now!!!

Some here may be aware of the old HL2DM server [____Skul`Shock____]...if not, well, it was pretty popular for a time, due to it's over-the-top & arcade-like settings (lots of sounds, mods, infinite sprint, low gravity, etc).

Anyway, I have become curator of the files and am trying to bring it back online. So far, I've gotten most things working (mainly Sourcemod & plugins for that), except for two Metamod plugins: Stripper and Keeper, which seem to be abandon and no longer working. The last time this server was 100% working, was in 2017. It was previously running on a Windows server, but I've had to convert it to Linux now (though I can't imagine that matters...for the most part, I have a LOT of experience with this stuff, especially on Linux).

Code:
meta list
Listing 5 plugins:
  [01] <FAILED>
  [02] <ERROR>
  [03] SourceMod (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
  [04] SDK Tools (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
  [05] SDK Hooks (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
The failure is Keeper, the error is Stripper.

The only thing I've been able to find in the server logs is as follows, and I'm not sure how to find more, but I did look at every file that matched the expression to be sure, but this is literally everything I could find regardless:

Code:
grep -rnw -E "stripper|keeper|kp_"

I am aware of options to replace Keeper with Sourcemod plugins, which is fine if it is too dead, but I'm not sure how to replace Stripper. It was responsible for quite a few features of the server, but mainly just giving the players a specific spawn loadout, and spawning text entities to put fancy looking adverts at the top & bottom of the players' screens every few minutes.

I greatly appreciate any insight. Thank you for reading either way!

p.s. I'm reading through the Keeper thread (linked above) and some memories of offsets and kvf files are slowly coming back to me. I tried a few dllinfo.kvf solutions offered, but same result each time.

Oh I almost forgot, the server console also gets spammed with this:

Code:
L 03/14/2020 - 03:34:26: MetaMod:Source is loaded - Your server will be more stable if you load KEEPER_SOUNDS as a MMS plugin!!!
MetaMod:Source is loaded - Your server will be more stable if you load KEEPER_SOUNDS as a MMS plugin!!!
And also:

Code:
~/hl2mp/logs$ cat * | grep "kp_"
L 03/14/2020 - 03:26:42: "kp_sounds_version" = "2.3.1.0 VSP"
L 03/14/2020 - 03:26:42: "kp_build_date" = "Sep 25 2015 08:32:22"
UPDATE:
So Keeper's plugin is listed as failed..

Code:
meta list
Listing 5 plugins:
  [01] <FAILED>
  [02] Stripper (1.2.2) by BAILOPAN
  [03] SourceMod (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
  [04] SDK Tools (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
  [05] SDK Hooks (1.10.0.6478) by AlliedModders LLC
However, Keeper's plugin is now mostly tested/working on the server, despite apparently fialing to load?....I'm VERY confused. And server console is still getting spammed with those "Your server will be more stable if you load KEEPER_SOUNDS as a MMS plugin!!!" messages.
