It also looks (via a quick grep of 'skill *.README') that the skill code first appeared in 0.92.1. Before that time, each character just had a single experience total and level, and that overall level determined things like ability to cast spells, ability to hit things, hp, sp, etc.
I still have my original Crossfire character (Lars the Northman) who would date from around '95. Lars passed beyond the world of mortals long ago. Today he lives on as a pure DM character who only appears when the DM is needed.
When I brought Lars back after years archived I think the game gave him a few base skills automatically.
Lars was probably archived for 10 years. I'm impressed that I was able to load such an old character and have the game cope.
I can certainly make any of the versions available if desired.
Yes please. Like others I'd like to keep ancient versions archived and for review.
