I have created a simple but effective OA-protopage website:
http://www.protopage.com/milesteg#My_public_category/OpenArena

It lists many of the recent news about the game and includes the most useful links.

This question has probably been answered elsewhere . . . but how to I INSTALL these maps after I've downloaded them, so I can play them in Open Arena?

I'm using Ubuntu Feisty 64-bit on a Biostar board with an AMD Athlon 64 3400+ processor.


Title: Re: Open Arena Usefuls Links
Post by: jackoverfull on June 12, 2007, 06:18:01 pm
in the map is .pk3 file you must put it in the baseoa folder, if it is a .bsp one put it in baseoa/maps (create "maps" if there isn't one).

anyway, your question is a little off-topic here..

Thanks in advance.

Use the .torrent as pulchr provided the link for, it's a safe bet. Here is the thread (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=953.0) where the pack is posted for further info, and screenshots: http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=953.0

Kikou,
I set up a board to share a few things with players I know in OA, and I took screenshots of most models listed in on this page : http://ioquake3.org/models/
You can see these pics here : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/screenshots/models/
I also made a selection of the ones I like : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25

I also published some screenshots (which were already done) of the map pack made by w1zrd (sorry, calling you wizard :D) :
CTF Maps : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16
Other Maps (DM, ...) : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=24

It's a rather bilingual board, so normal if you meet some french words ;)

See ya

Edit: I added a zip file with all the model screenshots : http://jolie.techa.free.fr/files/screenshots%20all%20models.zip ; easier to view locally

Thanks for all your work on this for the Mac...and thanks to all the folks that have developed this game!!!!

Thanks to Cacatoes I put the files in gallery format and are a reasonable size to get an idea of the model :

Title: Re: Open Arena Usefuls Links
Post by: Cacatoes on April 21, 2008, 08:54:29 am
Good idea, just to add : I didn't shot every model, some didn't work, and some looked obvious (homer simpson, & other famous characters we can easily guess how they look).
So for an extensive list of models, check the ioquake3 page.
If you want me to add new models I forgot, make a list of the missing ones and I'll try to do that.


Title: Re: Open Arena Usefuls Links
Post by: skankychicken on April 21, 2008, 09:40:44 am
No thats perfect. There are often requests for people to see images of models on our site based in the US, mainly younger people. Now I'm on a mission to get all the levelshots for maps at 160 x 120 for the game browser and using the ref/rcon web based interface to check out the maps using AJAX  :)

If you're looking for art resources, I thought I might plug my site, OpenGameArt.org (http://opengameart.org).  I've already got a decent-sized archive of textures, and I'm working on accumulating more.
