Hi Jak! Does this mean that you stopped Calypso mod (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=4674.0) development (I hoped for a next or final version of it that would have removed the potential privacy issue of having the "whois" command availabe whithin a game, although I have to admit I don't even know if that is a serverside or clientside command), and started a new one from scratch, for having a more "clear" code, although sharing some features?

I smell (?) an incoming wiki page on the OA Wiki for the mod... :P

Has Chaosarena something to do with the Chaos mods for Quake and Unreal? As if, it took some inspiration and stuff like that.

Also, have you kept the TA weapons as well? Nailgun, Chaingun, Prox. With those three new weapons, there's a lot to play. And I suppose your mod can support maps designed specifically for CA, is it true?

And last, but not least, do you plan to update release versions into ther sites, such as ModDB? It would be a good idea to do that.

@Neon, I don't know about the wiki page, for the moment. I will not have much time for a while.
Of course, I already think about creating it when I will have some time. Someone else may do it before.  ;)

I don't remember exactly the Chaos mod (I don't even remember if I ever played it at all! Do you have some link?), but I have the impression this one has nothing to share with previous mods other than Calypso... probably the "Chaos" word is just a coincidence. However, Jakash will tell.  :)

PS: It is however a shame that privacy issue in Calypso will never be fixed...

Bump! The link isn't working anymore, whereas Calypso does. Should we have to compile the mod from the source?

The link appears to work. Maybe the site was temporarily down.
You might want to try hosting downloads via GitHub releases (as long as they stick around anyways).
