just add mirrors to the post ;-)

and perhaps the "usual" procedure to apply it

b2a0437da751cd50dd2351ed9e0c4e9d  oa085p.zip

http://download.tuxfamily.org/openarena/rel/085/oa085p.zip

you can have download stats (generated once a day) at http://stats.download.tuxfamily.org/openarena/

I updated http://openarena.wikia.com/wiki/Download_Mirrors with   http://openarena.ws/download.php?list.60  (main mirrors) to keep counter increasing :p

On the front page there's a 'current release box' that leads to the download for it which has a list of mirrors. Only two - tuxfamily (primary) and moddb.

No. Black name isn't working.

And then the no-mac problem... 1/3 of our clan has mac

How do I trigger the new flares? They are not the default, and r_flaredlight and r_lensReflections taken from the SVN commits topic don't exist. If the ETA for 0.8.6 is really March, there's no reason to worry, a lot of fixes can be made and a Mac build could also come.

So far 2 issues:

- I don't know how to get HEX color codes to work... the way described here doesn't work for me at least http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=3095.msg26352#msg26352
 (original black color code ^^8 also doesn't work in the nickname and it gives orange instead).

- I don't know the name for cvar that locks r_vertexLight and other gfx tweaks by default.

That way of coloring was never implemented in OA's VMs.

The cvar is videoflags and works as described here: http://openarena.ws/board/index.php?topic=1908.msg25566#msg25566. The cvar name is changed since that beta.

I'll be posting a mirror to this version ASAP.
If you have 0.8.5 RC1, delete it before installing this new version.

Two very not critically bugs:
It says OAX in the corner (my fault, not worth to fix because it would break pure check)
The Linux binaries have timestamps from 3. January suggesting that they are from before the new flares was added. This can be fixed without breaking anything, but just in case people complain that they cannot find it.

Server admins should as minimum be aware of two new cvars (one mentioned while writing this):
videoflags 7
pmove_float 1

videoflags should be changed from 7 to 3 to allow vertexlight. Change to 1 to allow special configurations. Changing to 0 should never be required but is an option. The default is 7 by request but change it to suit your audience.
pmove_float prevents rounding errors from affecting movement. This goes both ways, some will gain height, some will loose it. Some might not like it.

Remember that the old binaries still work, so Mac players can play. A 0.8.5 player can join a pure 0.8.1 server.

So all this hype about "no Mac version" - Why can't we Mac people just replace the RC1 (if we have it) with the pak6-patch.pk3? (This would require renaming it to pak7-patch.pk3 since pak6 is "misc" and I don't want to cause internal problems)

The .zip includes that pk3 and a bunch of other stuff, but for us Mac people...couldn't we just copy over the patch and take advantage of the updates that way?

...then I should get on telling people to quit whining.

Most of my clan is Mac people. They apparently don't know to read this site in full to find out what is and isn't true/rumors. Tongue

So - there is no difference in gameplay and such if I just copy over the patch to my baseoa? Or is the Windows/Linux client updated to include stuff that I, on my Mac, won't see?

The console can be transparent and the size can be changed with a CVAR.
The windows version has new flares.

Nothing that breaks anything. 0.8.1 binaries still work. You could just autodownload the patch and it would work.

For those interested, here's the list of maps that are included in the 0.8.5 patch:

Code:
am_underworks
am_underworks2
blitzkrieg3
ctf_compromise
ctf_gate1
ctf_inyard
hydronex2
oa_koth2
oa_minia
oa_reptctf11
ps37ctf2
ps9ctf

My question to those who know:

How do I set up sprees on a server? I found sprees.dat but not sure how to set it up for the server (or is it client-only?). Here's sprees.dat:

Code:
//Example spree file

//Here are the killsprees
[kspree]
level = 1
printpos = 2
message = [n] is on a killing spree with [k] kills
sound = sound/feedback/excellent.wav

//Add more kill sprees here (level 2,3,4 etc.)

//Here comes death sprees. Useful to get people to leave your server
//[dspree]
//level = 1
//printpos = 2
//message = [n] keeps on fighting despite [k] deaths
//sound = sound/feedback/humiliation.wav

//Add more death sprees here (level 2,3,4 etc.)

My other question is:

bot_nochat var have not been fixed (my observation) - bots still chat even when bot_nochat is set to 1. Anyone can confirm?

Question.

Me and a few others were playing on the FF server with the new patch. And we noticed that we cannot jump the bridge on ps37ctf even with /com_maxfps 125 set. Me nor anyone else never had this problem in 0.8.1

Anyone know what could be the cause?

0.8.5 has fps independent physics. I guess the default is "accurate" (pmove_float?) which allows smaller jumps. Try (or rather the server should be set to) pmove_msec 9 or pmove_msec 13, I've tested them on ps37ctf.

I've changed pmove_msec from 8 to 11 (which is apparently the new default for 0.8.5). This should hopefully fix the physics. If not then I'll try 13. Thanks Udi!

So just update the /openarena-0.8.1/baseoa folder with the patch and then the mac version should work? Then basicly the patch also works on mac, but the mac app is just not updated right?
