- Mac is back!
- Two new single player campaign tiers
- New maps:
      am_lavaarena
      am_lavactf
      am_lavactfxl
      am_mckinleyish2
      am_spacecont
      am_thornish
      mlca1
      mlctf1beta
      oa_bases3p3ta
      oasago1
      oa_thor
      pul1duel-oa
      pxlfan

- New player model: Neko.   
- Specular maps have been added to many player and weaponsmodels. These can be disabled by turning off detail textures.
- Invulnerability powerup and effects
- Grappling hook model, shader, and sounds
- Angelyss, Gargoyle have been reanimated
- Liz and SMarine animation glitches fixed
- Music
- Many of the old maps got entity tweaks, gametype unlocking and other fixes.
- Benchmark demo
- Fixed TEAMMATE kill message bug.
- Prevent team changing and disconnect from changing team score in Team Deathmatch.
- Don't let vampire resurrect dead players.
- Now uses FFA spawnpoints in domination.
- Workaround for Kamikaze bug.
- g_autonextmap added ("Auto change level" in the menu). Randomly picks a new map once the current map has ended. The maps allowed for each gametype are configurable.
- You can now see how much health the obelisk have left in Overload
- Autoswitch weapon can now be set to only change to better or new weapons.
- Chat beep can be disabled in options.
- Changed default customvotefile to customvote.cfg.
- Added the possibility for spawning in waves. The cvar g_respawntime says how often players should spawn.
- Added a CVAR g_voteBan X - bans a player for X minutes using the KK-admin system
- Added g_gravityModifier (default 1.0) that modifies g_gravity relatively to the value set by the map.
- Additional dmflags. Most notably "Fast weapon switch" and "No self damage".
- Added a CVAR g_damageModifier to modify damage of all weapons and triggers.
- Added replace_* cvars like disable_*. Can be used like "set replace_weapon_shotgun weapon_bfg" for replacing shutgun by BFG.
- Handicap is reset to 100 once returned to the main menu. It is no longer changeable thorugh the GUI to prevent new players from hurting themself.
- Added "Click to respawn"-message. Tells the player how long until they are allowed to respawn. Very relevant for wave spawning.
- New specular code, r_specmode 1 to enable
- New environment map code, r_envmode 1 to enable
- Cascaded bloom, which is more 'natural', and is much faster on lower end hardware r_bloom_cascade 1 to enable
- Support for GLSL shaders!
- Bloom is not allowed if we don't have 32-bit color for textures. This stops the user from playing with corrupt bloom in 16-bit color since the bloom code doesn't really support that yet.

Hi!
I should check again, but I'm quite sure the sentence about handicap that "It is no longer changeable thorugh the GUI to prevent new players from hurting themself." is not correct. Now the GUI warns the user that it makes you weaker, but the option still there (and I think it is good this way). It's true, instead, that it returns to default value when you quit from a match.

PS: if you want to mention the restored compatibility with third-party bots designed for Q3...

oh and make a big announcement for the new patch because people are still complaining that they can't join my server(because they don't have the 0.8.8 patch)
some people don't know about the patch.

also tell them to close the open arena exe while applying the patch because else
the old open arena exe will not get overwritten.
so they will still have the old open arena exe!!!

Great news!!! I do think this new release is a big enhancement from OA 0.8.5!

oh and make a big announcement for the new patch because people are still complaining that they can't join my server(because they don't have the 0.8.8 patch)
some people don't know about the patch.

When a news is posted here it's also posted on the frontpage, and the download section was also updated.

Tell them to update to 0.8.8.

We had MONTHS and even one and a half YEAR to fix the bugs for 0.8.8. It's not our fault that they weren't interested.

you are so right but if you want people to join servers with the new patch you need to tell them or else they will not join those servers ever

Add a "OA0.8.8" behind your servers name. Maybe they know which version they're using. Smiley

i already added 0.8.8 behind the servers names a few days ago.can't really make it more obvios.and people also tend to not read the motd.on my servers.one day i had a special event and announced it with both motd's and people still didn't know whats going on...
people need to learn to read :O
we should make a log in screen before people can join a server they would have to confirm that they read the text by clicking on a letter in the text XD

The Wiki page about Download Mirrors needs to be updated as well.

Checked again with the complete 0.8.8 download: Handicap has NOT been removed from the GUI (and, IMHO, it's good this way).
So, if you wanna change that phrase, Fromhell, and add something about bot compatibility...

1) You mean those player models? No. Theres' no source for any of them, all are non-commercial and also many are derivative, most of them use copyrighted Q3 biped files ID released and most of them are based on a property. Also, all are made with non-Free programs, so if we had sources (.max files typically) it would be no use.
2) Closed source, possibly GPL violating since it includes a modified engine with no source in sight.
