Not everyone will think about updates when the rest of the servers are working fine and on 0.7.1, that's why we need some kind of update notice.

Here's my two cents..

I generally play the ver 0.7.1 for two main reasons:
  1. The infamous mouse over-sensitivity of ver. 0.7.7
  2. Most good players play on this verision

I do understand that these developers are putting their time into making the OA experience special. Also, adversting the new version is feasible for the development of the game. These things are necessary but when we have many committed players not satisfied with the changes, they will keep what is working and promote the working copy to others until the main kinks in the new version are addressed.

This is exactly what Microsoft is going through. Everyone that knows about computers recommends Windows XP over Windows Vista. Microsoft is trying to force Vista down people throats and all it is doing is making people buy MACs machines. Just look at Microsoft's and Apple stock. Vast difference!

So here is a resolution: At least make 0.7.1 and 0.7.7 available until Windows Vista (aka OA 0.7.7) gets the main issue addressed. This way everyone will stop bitch'n about how the new version sucks. No one wants to work or play under duress. fromhell, You can recommend to new players to install the version while we can recommend, in the forums, to use 0.7.1. People are more apt to go with is recommended by the site admin. I dunno if anyone is working on fixing this issue with the mouse sensitivity; but i dont think its going away anytime soon. We love the game so much that we are willing to stick around until that problem is solved.

We need each other on this to make this game work. Feelings may and will get hurt but lets be mature about this and come to a reasonable agreement.

I'm quite sure that fromhell can find it in their heart to create a little forum area for the minority of 71 players or people working on stuff then the anti-social or the unwashed people can still have some kind of oppertunity to post without fear. They can keep away from the hard working upper class part of the OA society and I'm sure the knowledgable people from 0.7.7 will also agree. There would be no confusion and no need for all the silly comments and sarcasm which don't really do a community any good. Argue all you want, but if you have an opinion, and you expect someone else to read and respect that opinion, then you must also accept that there maybe others who do not share the same opinion

I've just realised :/ that will be a bad idea. It would give others oppertunity to bash people who post in wrong forums and I   post stuff in all the forums. People would miss all my important posts. Sad

Mr. Oho..! Smiley
Well, I will gladly accept the job.. I will try to make a very nice -readme file- about some basic stuff.
I hope my work to be taked seriously though.

And this question goes to the Boss.. fromhell, If I spend some of my free time creating this readme file, will u put it INTO the new release? as an additional file?

Well, since I didnt get an answer I guess Im talking to a wall or its not really important.... so.. I will sit and wait for 0.8.0, I hope "the wall" and the other developers to make a good job for 0.8.0

I have a question for you:

What do you expect for 0.8? It won't change the 0.7.7 input much.
I had this 'spinning' input problem with Q3A in 2001 under M$ Windows. It occurend sometimes and annoyed me but I lived with it. I guess it's a strange combination of mouse / operating system / driver.

So the problem cannot be reproduced and there of not be fixed. Seems you and the everybody who encounters is able to 'repair' this and offer OA a patch.

Ubuntu 32bit here - sensitivity is different but not defective. All I had to do is readjust it and a few kills with the new speed setting.
Moreover - 0.7.7 has Hitscan Unlag which is ... one of the most important features for an FPS game?? Gosh now Railgun actually shoots where u point it!


AIRLOGIC is now updated to 0.7.7 and it will be kept up to date without delays like last one. The servers are some pretty bad ass machines on a ISP fiber backbone in IL. Everyone who is not allergic to 0.7.7 is welcome ! Smiley

A simple answer to this unification problem you fine folks have been having is answered equally as simply: The Koopa Klown Car Clan [KKC] is the ultimate in OPen Arena unification and skill. We mainly use the 0.8.0 patch, and encourage all players of the game to unite under our amazing air balloon with a propeller on the bottom.

Having organized play is a strong helper to any FPS, and certainly, if we are all under only one organization, that being this one, of course, it will only benefit us and further serve the desires of the KKC, and who else would want any different?

If you are against the KKC, I perfectly understand your unification issues and anarchy and communist love, and encourage you to report yourself to AOL as soon as possible for believing in communism.

We accept all clan challenges (and will most likely report you to AOL if you win, and will tell them you're a wall hacker).

Thank you, OpenArena, Linux, and beautiful mother Earth, you have finally bared fruit, and that fruit is us, the Koopa Klown Car Clan.

why should i stay to 0.7.1 or 0.7.7 just to find servers? we all updated to 0.8.0 incl. the latest serverfix. it works for us. if there are other servers, its okay, but if not: okay too.

staying at an outdated version just because of the servers isn’t good, because the server administrators don’t have a reason to update, if there are players on thier servers, and the players wont update, unless the server administrator updates.
