Take it slow
There's a new font being proposed. It's so different and hi-techy I would like input on your thoughts of me including it in 0.9.0.

I'm also going blue blue blue and switching the logo with a cuter one.

There's also that 'do 5 player models' thing also. I can't do this alone.

Do I even write to this blog anymore?
I'm thinking about doing a new site, 3 columns

OA 0.8.1 has been out since. It has a legacy client and much more improved feel now. I hope it is good for those on 0.7.1.

0.9.0 won't be released until all missing textures are replaced.

just so you are aware, part deux
After the whole server situation there's still troubles like I can't commit to SVN right now. Also i'm planning to attic the following:

p.s. the oa team is not big, don't be fooled by all that media and a complete game. We're looking for blender-proficient artists that can animate, artists that can skin (from scratch mind you, not using non-free textures) and also looking for tracker musicians willing to utilize only freepats samples. Strict I know, but it's better safe than sorry. We're not desperate enough to accept non-Free material and thieves Read more...Collapse )

UPDATE: Now one of the other domains for the hosting are down so I'm unable to upload any files for the time being.

i've cut out the suspiciously non-Free music out of OpenArena. Why?

- No editable sources
- No real GPL license
- Not tracker format
- Legally questionable samples (they certainly aren't freepats)

OA is now 253mb.
Missionpack is now 3.7mb.

- Map: oa_bases5 !!! YES OA_BASES5 not 3!!! It's a new base ctf map i whipped up in a few hours, and it's a bit more 1997-style (a homage to both Blood and Team Fortress)
- MilesTeg did something about my silly misaligned fonts, plus there's a readable replacement of the header font (at the top of the screens and such)
- You can now stand on the spinning fan in FAN but there's still a crash related to the fan :\

dmn_clown did these things:
- made oa_bases3 suck less and play fair
- made oa_ctf2, a smaller void ctf map with red lighting
- updated botfiles
- new textures (in textures/clown)

I did:
- some experimental skyrooms stuff
- some liquid shaders
- ported SavageX's hydronex CTF level (still not done yet, lighting is a bit fubar)

- Ylle made the missing "Model" button graphic!
