Title: 0.7.1 patch released!
Post by: fromhell on August 08, 2007, 01:27:43 pm
Our previous release was a bit buggy and so we did this patch to fix things up and polish some graphics here and there.

This contains no engine binaries and can only be installed on the 0.7.0 version.

Changes:
- Angelyss/dark_blue is more blue on costume
- New item icons from anyone
- Less bots for oa_dm2 in single player campaign
- Fan crash fix
- You can no longer walk in the sky on Suspended
- Beret is more polished, wears his beret properly
- Announcer is a bit louder and much cleaner
- New rocket smoke

Does this update have the fixed version of Liz?

no because the fixed version has more errors than ever before (i.e. you changed the weapon animation hand frames! and ugly torso bobbing when running)

If that's correct, then you have to have root permissions when installing OpenArena from the repositories in Ubuntu.

Can you please state on the download page how to install the patch? I think it would be beneficial to many users.

No, you don't. You can also install the pk3 file locally: put it in ~/.openarena/baseoa/

~ is your home directory (e.g. /home/brettalton/), maps starting with a dot are hidden by default.

just for further clarification, you can either put the patch into your home directory's openarena folder with  nautilus (the file browser) or the terminal. first unzip the zip file you downloaded and put the pk3 in your home directory and then either...

open nautilus, copy the patch, select "view" then "show hidden files" to reveal the .openarena folder, enter this folder then enter the baseoa folder and paste the patch here.

or open a terminal and type

mv pak7-patch.pk3 .openarena/baseoa

(sorry if this is stuff you already know, but it might be useful for someone).

I downloaded the patch and paste it in .openarena/baseoa but when i open the game all the letters are    blurred and the effects are black


Title: Re: 0.7.1 patch released!
Post by: w1zrd on August 23, 2007, 02:38:47 pm
openarena-0.7.0/baseoa and not the hidden .openarena/baseoa on my installation (kubuntu 7.04) of it, patch and everything works like a charm.

Didn't know you could patch in your personal preferences folder; thanks.

I still think the instructions should be on the homepage though.

Hey there, I crashed a million times on fan level on my buddy's pc before I downloaded 0.7.0 in the compiled Universal Binary package for my Mac Mini. How do I install the patch into it? As you may or may not know, a native OS X app is like a self contained Folder/Application. Can I simply drop the 0.7.1 pak7-patch.pk3 file patch directly into the baseoa folder inside the Application package?

drop it in the application package>Contents>MacOS>baseoa or in a "baseoa" folder in the same folder of the application package or in ~/Library/Application Support/OpenArena/baseoa. It is the same.

Sweetness, I just finished running through the tiers under I can Win just to get some points. Now i'll work on raking up the points of the higher up difficulties. BTW, once in a while the game flips out and freezes for a few seconds. It usually gts over whatever is pissing of OA, however should I try and lower some of the system quality of the game to see if it clears up even more?

From:

"How long does Megaupload store my files?

Your files will be stored forever as long as you are a premium member. If you are a registered user without premium status, your files will be stored until at least 90 days after their last download (you can manually restart that expiration period at any time in the file manager). A file that was uploaded anonymously (that is not owned by any Megaupload user) will be deleted no sooner than 21 days after the last time it was downloaded. "

So as long as people still download it, it will be available. :-)  And yes, both files are still available on megaupload.
