Default P99 on period correct hardware. So close! DLL changelog question

NOTE: I believe this is unrelated to the recent v49 issues being posted. The issue I'm battling appears to go back a little further than that.

It feels like I'm VERY close to having P99 running on a machine built entirely with hardware from 1999. It basically does work, but at the moment I can only get it to connect to the server with a legacy version of P99's dsetup.dll file and I'm just trying to pinpoint why that is. I fully understand this quest of mine is pretty far beyond what's reasonably supported by the team, but I figured it's worth sharing my symptoms in hopes of getting a little light shed on the current state of the server's system requirements.

Here's the situation:
01) Running Windows XP Pro 32 bit SP3 // DirectX9.0c // .NET Framework 4.0 // P99 v49b
02) Titanium launches fine (eqgame.exe patchme) and gets to server select screen without issue.
03) Connecting to EZ and PEQ servers works fine and I'm able to get into the game and play without issue.
04) Attempting to connect to P99, however, crashes immediately with the error "eqgame.exe has encountered and problem and must close." Looking at the log, it only seems to get as far as the "WorldAuthenticate" phase. See log below.
05) Rolling back P99's dsetup.dll to a version I happen to have from 2013 WORKS! It connects to the server without crashing. Spell file is then of course out of date, but at least it does establish a connection. See log below.

I found the older DLL by happenchance when I tried running Duxa's All-In-One installer at one point in an act of desparation. It's dated 10/8/2013 and is marked as version 1.9.0.0.

I know from experience that the DLL has always required DirectX9.0c and Windows XP, but what else might it require? Can you guys think of anything major that has changed about the file in the last few years that would trigger a new layer of incompatibility?

Does anybody have a library of older P99 patch versions? I'd LOVE to step through them one at a time to pinpoint when the change occurred.

Here's my log FAILING connect to P99 using v49b DLL:

I suspect there's just something in the newer DLL that's expecting a later version of some system software than what was previously required (DirectX, .NET Framework, etc. etc.). Any information on that from the devs would be super appreciated! Thank you!

EDIT: I would also like to make mention of this other guy's recent post who describes a similar situation. He's using a Voodoo5 (so must be using an older system with AGP as well) and states that he was able to play P99 on it as recently as a year or so ago, but no longer can.

Here's one of the machines I'm working with. This is all hardware released in 1999.

Pentium III 500mhz // ABIT BE6 II Slot 1 motherboard // 3dfx Voodoo3 3000 AGP 2x // 768MB PC100 RAM // Western Digital WD Expert 13.6GB 7600RPM HDD

Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP3 // DirectX9.0c // P99 patch v49b

I guess to prove I'm not ENTIRELY off my rocker (only a little bit), here's Titanium running on the machine connected to the EZ server without issue: [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

SInce you are using old hardware, do you happen to be using a 10Mb LAN card? Sometimes they can cause a machine that's looking for a fast connection to think the connection timed out. Not sure why the new patch files would trigger it.

I have all that stuff in a box in a garage. Nearly the same system. I kinda want to do this now. Might be my new winter project.

Haha well thanks guys it's no time for congratulations yet. It isn't quite there yet. I'm currently testing different software and hardware combos to figure out where the hangup is when it comes to P99. Don't hold your breath just yet.

If you're into this kind of stuff though, I've done a few of these types of builds which you can check out on this partially complete site of mine:
