try playing the ctf maps in skirmish mode till they start using them on servers. its a good way to get familiarized with them before everyone else. on that note it would be a good idea to practice the new dm maps and the elimination modes as well.
i have a feeling they wont be too well recieved unfortunately, since they are too "complex". most ctf'ers ive played with always callvote nextmap the more complicated maps in 0.7.1 for some stupid reason and will mass-spectate any time the vote fails :/  i personally dont like yet will still play the simplier maps, and really enjoy the more complicated ones.... but sadly im in the minority.

They like n00b maps because they're n00bs, unfortunatley there's no way around that in this game.

ya rather disappointing to me..... its not like they will ever learn the maps if they keep voting them off :/  some people just play the game a bit too seriously i guess, and assume any time they do poorly on a map means their e-penis is that much smaller. ah well, ill be playing a lot more offline for a while anyway till the majority of the servers have upgraded.

Yeah that the servers are not compatible is a bit disappointing.. But I did find a  7.6 DM server last night that was fun online.  Playing in skirmish mode is fun, but the bots just get so predictable, even on the most difficult setting.    I also get frustrated that so many people cling to the same CTF maps.  bases5 hardly ever comes in rotation anymore... 

And as a side question... I have tons of maps that I painstakingly (ha ha)  downloaded for the older version... I have saved them elsewhere and am just wondering... can I use these in the new version or does this mean all those maps are no longer usable?

the maps should work fine i think, but i don't know if the new playing modes are supported fully? or maybe the new modes aren't the ones that was available in quake 3 team arena?

i think that the new modes will not be a problem for the old maps, since they doesn't require map changes to work...

Oh yes they will. Entities would have to be inserted for the middle flag, and double domination points, and for missionpack the new weapons/runes/items etc. would have to be placed.

middle flag? sorry: didn't noticed that option (it's like the one flag option of elite force ii, right?)...

double domination isn't using the flags as domination points?

the one flag position is also used for harvester in missionpack.

double domination doesn't use the flags.

double domination doesn't use the flags.

It normally does use flags as domination points (removes the flags and spawns the points instead), however it somehow broke in hypernex.

It uses Deatchmatch spawnpoints if the map does not have dedicated double domination spawnpoints. This is the real problem. Maps need info_player_dd entities placed away from the domination points. dmn_clown uploaded an entities file that allow placement of info_player_dd (http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=963.0).

Good job with 0.7.6!
I like the reworked maps - OA_DM3 and OA_DM5 look much better now, love the broken walls and tree roots. The assassin model pwnz too.

Any idea when it might be possible to play oniine again??  I got the new version thinking I would need it to play online, but now that I have it there are maybe 2 or 3 servers that even support it...  a shame really!

0.7.6 is a recent release and will take a little time to propagate to all of the servers. As with all software, many server operators often wait for reports of any bugs that may be in the new releases before installing them on their boxen.

I thought that was what you was looking for. Data source is here: http://openarena.ws/svn/source/assets/

And the actual data is here: http://openarena.ws/svn/
