Hopefully a new patch will be out in a matter of months and would contain a few fixes of the few ones introduced in OA 0.8.5. That was the deal, make a new version soon because 0.8.5 didn't go as well as expected (no RC2 released)

"armor shard, nasty blue menu" keeps you from playing? *phew*
So there is absolutely nothing positive about 0.85 for you?

Why did the additions of schlorri not get into 0.85?

There's no way to please everybody, and specially those who claim themselves as fans/players and have nothing good to say about OA. A lesson I had to learn with the time...

If someone has nothing good to say about OA, the best we can do is to ignore him/her, since nothing we can do will please him/her.

OA, artwork-wise, won't clone Q3 artwork anymore. It was a decision took long ago.

Some did. There is cg_weaponBarStyle and it is technically possible to change crosshair per weapon. However the setup UI is missing it all, so especially the crosshairs are annoying to set up.

He did work on some other things but I don't know if they are complete.

I'm preparing a changelog for 0.8.5, so all the people know what's new and fixed in 0.8.5. But before it, I want to know which version of OAX the 0.8.5 patch is using, b44 or the latest revision available.

Good i'll edit the news with the changelog because I have amnesia about things like that you know, i'm an artist and i don't follow the development of OAX tightly enough

The changelog might just stretch the news article though, i don't want to do that

Select the points, so far, this is what I've got. Oh, and before posting, I want sago to check if all of this is right: (Sources: http://code.google.com/p/oax, oaxb44's readme and oa 0.8.5 rc1's changelog - something's missing/wrong for sure anyways :/)

EDIT: I will also need the ioq3 revision which was applied to OA 0.8.5.

Code:
Serveradmins, read this: http://code.google.com/p/oax/wiki/Admin

Content-wise:
- Improved ctf_compromise, ctf_gate1, ctf_inyard and oa_minia.
- Added am_underworks, am_underworks2, blitzkrieg3, hydronex2, oa_koth2, oa_reptctf11, ps9ctf and ps37ctf.
- Two new skins: one for Assassin and another for Beret, both by cosmo.
- New 2d art and blueish menu by Udi and leileilol.

Code-wise general:
* Updated to ioquake3 rev
* Colored crosshairs are back.
  * They will now change to white if a colored crosshair is choosen and for some reason the server does not support it.
  * They are supported by changing RGB values via menu or cvar. The cvars are cg_crosshairColorRed, cg_crosshairColorGreen and cg_crosshairColorBlue.
* Team only voice chat (cg_voipTeamOnly) enabled by default. While this function is enabled any value the player assign to "cl_voipSendTarget" will be overwritten when a player joins or leaves the team.
* g_awardPushing. If enabled, players will get frags for killing with a mover (be aware that this makes it possible to be noted for a teamkill even if friendly fire is off)
* Challenge system, which includes awards and statistics. It only works online.
* Password prompt when joining servers
* First Connect screen reminds new players of some important settings
* Can now handle 20*1024 charecters in the *.arena file list. Significantly increases the number of maps supported.
* Added restore system based on guid. You no longer lose scores when changing team, spectating or leave+rejoin
* Vote menu for calling votes.
  * Supports Next map, Restart, Shuffle teams, change map, change gametype, playerkick, warmup enable, fraglimit, timelimit and custom votes.
  * Supports maplists from a file - votemaps.cfg.
  * Support for custom votes with a votecustom.cfg (I shall post an example)
* Added GUI support for the grapple:
  * Server side cvar "elimination_grapple" added. Allows grapple in elimination gametypes.
  * Client side cvar "cg_cyclegrapple" to tell if Grapple should be part of the weapon cycle. Default is 1 since there are no default key.
  * You can get "No ammo" even if you have it
  * It'll never be selected then autoswitching from a weapon because you ran out of ammo
  * It's now placed before gauntlet
  * It can be bound in option menu
  * It's no longer selected by default on spawn
* Shuffle teams function added. Can be called by an admin "shuffle" or by "callvote shuffle"
* Non-rcon based admin system (ban, kick, lock teams, cancel votes etc.)
* Different crosshairs per weapon
* Added elimination_lockspectator: 0=no lock, 1=cannot follow enemy, 2=must follow teammate (For Elimination and CTF Elimination only)
* Servers with no humans on are considered empty if "Only humans" is enabled
* Killing sprees/death sprees and multikills added. Configurable via sprees.dat.
* Mines will self destruct very quickly if placed near the flag
* Added color 8 (menu color)
* Added serverside 'videoflags' cvar. Default value 7 (1+2+4). 1 verifies some basic values. 2 verifies some extended graphics settings. 4 disables vertex light. 
* Added clientside 'cg_autovertex' cvar. Automatically enables vertex light if allowed. Off by default. Gets enabled if you enable vertex light through the menu.
* Runes, Kamikaze and Invulnerability are now availeble (beware that Invincibility is unmodelled)
* Changed default ammo count in Elimination
* Negative scores in FFA are no longer possible.
* Penality points in 1 on 1 are awarded to the opponent rather than subtracted.
* Runes are now toggleable (default off in baseoa, default on in missionpack) - g_runes
* Double Domination counter will no longer count forever during warmup (however points will not respawn)
* Added clientkick_game, same as clientkick but located in the game code, so it can be improved without touching the engine
* Dead players are sorted last in Elimination/CTF Elimination
* cg_crosshairHealth toggleable in the menu
* New weapon bars, by schlorri. Toggleable by using
* Left/Center weapon hand can be changed.

Code-wise minor/other:
* Mouse wheel works in mods menu
* New ui_demo2.c by jessicaRA
* No maps are ignored if number of single player maps are not divideble by 4.
* Chaingun kill message is no longer the same as the machinegun kill message
* Changed message for teamkill from "you fragged <TARGET>" to "you fragged ^1TEAMMATE^7 <TARGET>"
* Midair suicide while g_awardpushing is enabled will result in a point to the attacker.
* Clamp on cg_errorDecay as suggested by jessicaRA
* g_lms_mode is now a SERVERINFO CVAR
* g_humanplayers is no longer a SERVERINFO CVAR. It's always 0 during intermission.
* CVAR_SYSTEMINFO is now set in cgame to allow game to override them
* cl_guid is now written to the log file for all human players joining
* g_elimination cvar added (like g_instantgib and g_rockets, but full elimination arsenal, health and damage rules)
* You cannot ban localhost anymore (the system needs rewrite)
* cg_oldRail now defaults to 0
* Fixed a bug that allowed a client to call more than 3 votes in a single game.
* Fixed vote exploit (some bugs still remain, needs rewrite)
* pmove_float added. Makes the physics framerate independent but cost up to 8 times as much network traffic (worst case, normally only a few percent). Mostly for LAN gaming. Note that you must reduce g_gravity to ~756 to get 125 fps gravity.
* Added comments to pure and All Rockets in "start server"
* Added "Oneway capture" to "start server" for the CTF Elimination gametype
* Added "Physics" to "start server"
* Added "Optimize for LAN" to "start server"
* Gametype filter now also works for One Flag, Obelisk, Harvester and Domination
* Fixed LMS mode bug in "start server"
* Updated to ioquake3 rev
* Flags are used for domination points instead of using Point A from DD
* Gametype flag "ctfelimination" removed, replaced by "ctf"
* Changed the way the game picks the spawn point to prevent maps with few spawnpoints that are marked with nobot or nohuman from hanging the game.
* Quad will no longer spawn if q_quadfactor <= 1.0
* Last Man Standing will no longer count connecting players as survivors.
* Chainging team or leaving the game now counts as a suicide to prevent misuse of the restore system. In Team Deathmatch the team will be compensated so they don't loose points by loosing a player to the other team.
* pmoved_fixed now gets disabled if pmove_float is selected in the UI
* More ingame information about pmove
* Removed compiler warning in TeamCvarSet
* Added 91 Hz fixed framerate to startserver (pmove_msec 11)
* No killed message then a client leaves (still counts as a suicide)
* Fixed double throw bug when a client disconnected
* Server command handling now modularized ( ClientCommand & ConsoleCommand )
* Added G_GlobalSound
* Duplicate GUID check
* pmove_msec defaults to 11 (controversial - I know)
* pmove_fixed on be default
* Vote can now pass even if majority is not reached then time runs out. It requires twice as many yes votes as no votes through or high percentage of yes votes.
* Vote system is more secure
* Added elimflags and voteflags than are now used to tranfer some booleans to save network traffic
* Breath and Dust effect backported from missionpack
* Added deathShader to scoreboard in missionpack (for Elimination and CTF Elimination only, missionpack only)
* Skulls are now visible on Skull carriar in Harvester
* Crosshair pusle can be disabled
* BG_Alloc/BG_Free added. replaces G_Alloc
* Fixed CleanStr
* Removed remaining references to punkbuster
* Removed Mplayer as an option in Missionpack server browser (still no support for different master servers through)
* Fixed wrong gamenames in Missionpack server browser
* Missionpack now supports ui_humansonly
* Now runs the correct logic then a single player map ends
* Server source is now: Internet, Internet(2), Internet(3) ... instead of Internet1, Internet2, Internet3 ...
* A few notices added to UI in different places
* Added g_catchup, that makes cheap frags a little more expensive if activated
* BG_CanAlloc introduced, can predict out-of-memory errors and handle them.
* Fixed crash during intermission in Elimination and CTF Elimination if a human was dead while the capturelimit was reached and possible other situations.

AI:
* bot_minplayers works better but still not perfect.
* Bots now attack the Obelisk in Overload
* Bots should now acknowlegde the gametype property of items (not tested)
* Fixed infinity loop bug caused by bot_roams with gametype flags
* You can now command bots in One Flag, Harvester, Obelisk and Domination.
* bot_nochat >= 2 will now stop all bot chat
* bots now reads team status from game rather than ai config string. Hopefully stopping bots from shoting at there own team during certain changes.
* Bots are now a little better at understanding prox mines
* Generally improved the bot's Area Awareness System.
* Fixed infinity loop bug in AAS code caused by the gametype flag.
* Exclude bots from duplicate names check

I want sago to check if all of this is right.

Some things got changed and then rechanged.

Quote
* Colored crosshairs are back.
  * They will now change to white if a colored crosshair is choosen and for some reason the server does not support it.
  * They are supported by changing RGB values via menu or cvar. The cvars are cg_crosshairColorRed, cg_crosshairColorGreen and cg_crosshairColorBlue.
The way the crosshairs gets color was changed completly.

Quote
* Different crosshairs per weapon
Not available from UI

Quote
* Added clientkick_game, same as clientkick but located in the game code, so it can be improved without touching the engine
Only relevant for coders. The function clientkick_game is handled internally.

Quote
* New weapon bars, by schlorri. Toggleable by using cg_weaponBarStyle

Quote
* Fixed vote exploit (some bugs still remain, needs rewrite)
The rewrite was completed before 0.8.5

Quote
* pmove_fixed on be default
Rather late it was pmove_float that was on by default.

Quote
* BG_Alloc/BG_Free added. replaces G_Alloc
* Fixed CleanStr
* Removed remaining references to punkbuster
* Removed Mplayer as an option in Missionpack server browser (still no support for different master servers through)
* Fixed wrong gamenames in Missionpack server browser
* Missionpack now supports ui_humansonly
Not relevant to players. Missionpack changes are not available in 0.8.5

Quote
* Now runs the correct logic then a single player map ends
Between versions bug. The bug was not in 0.8.1

Quote
* Bots should now acknowlegde the gametype property of items (not tested)
Unfortunately already appears to be buggy in some maps.

Quote
* pmoved_fixed now gets disabled if pmove_float is selected in the UI
Gives the impression that pmove_float could be selected in the UI in 0.8.1, but the changelog refers to a previous OAX rev. Selecting in UI was not possible in 0.8.1.

AI:

Modding/Mapping:
* Added clientkick_game, same as clientkick but located in the game code, so it can be improved without touching the engine

* Prevent crash when the message in dom_point is null

Other improvements and bugfixings:
* Updated to ioquake3 rev1759.

* cl_guid is now written to the log file for all human players joining
* Removed compiler warning in TeamCvarSet
* Fixed double throw bug when a client disconnected
* Added G_GlobalSound
* BG_CanAlloc introduced, can predict out-of-memory errors and handle them.

About the custom votes:
A votecustom.cfg file can look like this:
Code:
{
votecommand "lms_custom"
displayname "Change to Last Man Standing on dm4ish?"
command "g_gametype 10 ; g_instantgib 0; map dm4ish"
}
{
votecommand "ffa_custom"
displayname "Change to instantgib FFA on dm6ish?"
command "g_gametype 0 ; g_instantgib 2 ; map dm6ish"
}

votecommand is the command the client must execute. It may not contain spaces! displayname is the name displayed while the vote is going on command is the string that will be executed if the vote passws.

The above can be called using "/callvote custom ffa_custom" Typing "/callvote custom" will list the first 12 custom commands. The menu will show the first 12 entries.

About g_awardpushing 1:
With g_awardpushing 1
You fall into void, he shoots you, you /kill
Him: +1
You: 0

I consider using kill while falling to the void or burning in lava to be perfectly acceptable as death is unavoidable anyway. On a lot of OA maps you can fall for a long time before getting killed making a /kill very attractive or in team games even necessary.  If you /kill fast enough he cannot get a point unless it was him who sent you flying.
Is there a timeout for pushing?
In 0.8.1 there is a 3 (or 4, I don't remember) seconds timeout. In Beta 35 this has been reduced to 200 miliseconds but only time while safely on the ground is counted.

I considered (and still considering) only counting a push if a certain amount of force was inflicted but on some maps you can actually push a player rather far with rapid fire weapons. If you enable q_awardpushing (and it will be disabled by default) it is most likely to limit the amount of negative scores and in that case you would rather give two cheap kills than deny one actual kill.

About the restore system:
That allows you to change team or go spectating or even leave the game and only loose 1 point (0 if you are already dead). The game only remembers the last 32 players so you can be unlucky that it forgets you but it is still better than nothing.

About videoflags:
The game now forces vertex off by default. The system is inspired by the tournament mode suggested earlier. videoflags currently has 3 flags:
1 - basic lock - limits fov and zoomfov to 140
2 - extended lock - limits r_picmip, r_intensity, r_overbrightbits, r_gamma, etc. to sane values.
4 - vertex lock - disables vertex light on all clients.

cg_autovertex will automatically enable vertex if the lock is disengaged. For other cvars you will need a script to reset them.

And, finally, about crosshair colors and g_catchup.
The crosshair colors are possible the most interresting new thing. cg_crosshairHealth must be turned off for it to work.

g_catchup is by default disabled but if it is enabled it will reduce damage done to low scoring players by up 50% (rounded up).

The catchup cvar is targeted public servers: If it is set to 5 then the damage will be reduced by 5% for each frag above 5 that the target is behind. If the target has a higher score than the attacker 100% damage will always be dealt. If the target is at most 5 frags behind the attacker 100% damage will be dealt. Catchup can therefore not be used to overtake the firstplace (except by providing momentum). Catchup does not work in team games.

/cg_leienhancement also made it into 0.8.5
Switching it on lets you try out fromhell's test changes.

Great changelog by the way!

After the reminder about lei's effects I remembered some more changes since B44:

  • Prevent crash when the message in dom_point is null (only relevant to mappers)
  • Sound events to Double Domination
  • davidd's sort by humans
  • Added command "clients" that prints the correct client numbers for use with clientkick

How to turn on wapon-dependant crosshair? I use a config like
bind e "weapon 1; cg_drawgun 1; sensitivity 9; cg_drawCrosshair 1; cg_crosshairSize 1"
The problem is, if my weapon changes due to no ammo, the crosshair doesn't change. Also, when i spectate, the crosshair stays the same and i think demos are the same. I mostly rely on crosshair to know what gun am i using (no drawgun), so auto-canging crosshairs would help a lot.

Try cg_chXsize <c.h.size> and cg_chX <c.h.id> where X is a number in the range 1..13.

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.

Did I forget anything?
-No black names anymore? Smiley ironic
-no double first character required anymore when you open the console, also ^ works without pressing space after it. But maybe too minor to note in the overview.
-colors are already visible when you type them
-that stats menu
-new icon (or is that included with the UI restyling)
-enter password for server via GUI instead of conosole
-framerate independent physics changed

About heartbeats.

You now again need to set "+set com_dedicated 2" to get the server to send heartbeats. You can also use sv_public 1 to force even a listening server to send heartbeats.

thx sago.

ok I set com_dedicated 2 at startup and i tried to ser sv_public to 1 which is 0 at the moment, but that didnt work out because its write-protected or read-only.

and com_dedicated didnt bring my heartbeats back Sad

any other ideas?
