As of 1.76, AMX Mod X has an AMX Mod backward compatibility layer. This layer has two goals. The first goal is API compatibility: AMX Mod plugins should compile without modification and subsequently run normally on AMX Mod X. The second goal is ABI compatibility: AMX Mod plugins should run as raw '.amx' files, without recompilation, on AMX Mod X.

This current status of this side project is experimental. While it will work for most plugins, there may be niches or obscure details yet unresolved.
