I use a mac, and this morning openarena would not open. I was just playing last night, so this came as a surprise. When I open openarena, the screen flashes black, like it keeps trying and failing to open, before it finally gives up and I go back to my desktop.

My computer is a mac, and the only change I can think of is the automatic update over last night. I am not sure if that's the problem, but I am wondering if anyone else was having issues, or if there is a fix.

Should also try checking your stderr output also, try running it in the console

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.

it just started working again, I didn't change or do anything. Whatever, my computer has a mind of its own, I'm pretty sure.
