You'll have to be more specific on which NFO people assisted you so that we can follow up.
I'm not entirely familiar with what has been broken by the update to DoD:S, so I'd need you to email us or contact us in Live chat to get a more personalized server assessment. It's possible that some plugins or parts of mani could still work if others are disabled.
Keep in mind that most servers on the net probably aren't updated to the latest version of Source, and those servers would continue business as usual.
Incidentally, the lack of standards-compliance in the plugin community for Source is a big reason for our not officially supporting Source plugins. Historically, just about every update causes some plugin not to work because it was not written in accordance with the SDK.
