Title: defrag and open arena, getting it to work
Post by: Danfun64 on December 16, 2009, 01:49:23 PM
Hello. I'm trying to run defrag on open arena, but always keep getting the message baseoa-1/defrag-5 mismatch. I tried everything, i used an older version, i used the legacy version that came with the latest version. Oh and im running vista if that helps anything. How do i get it to work on a open arena server?

You get that message if your defrag version differs from the version the server uses. The most easy solution is, to set autodownload on (Setup, Game options, Automatic downloading), connect to the server you want to play on, and it will download everything necessary.

that fixed it, turnes out, the server was using an older version lol. Anyways i have a new problem. im trying to use a modified version of z-gpl-q3a2oa-textures-v5, but i can't seem to get the textures to show up. Can you tell me what i'm doing wrong? Also, where can i get a mappack for defrag with all the popular maps?

edit: the z-gpl-q3a2oa-textures-v5 file i'm using has a .shader file in it.

I don't know a good defrag mappack, try googling for it.

Texture questions should go into another topic, please keep the forums clean! I already told you on IRC but here's again for the archives that the z-gpl-q3a2oa-textures-v5 package contains shader files copied directly from Q3, so please avoid it!

how about v4, which one server is pushing, is that legal?

As far as I know yes. But as I already said:

He should clarify which size the pack has: if it has a lower size, it's one of the jackthompson's creations. Otherwise, if it weighs ~24 MB, is the conflicting one.
