Post news Report article RSS Feed OpenArena 0.7.7 patch released

This patch is mainly a bugfix patch to fix some of the annoying issues that cropped up in the 0.7.6 release.

Posted by leilei on May 28th, 2008

This is mainly a bugfix release. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you upgrade from 0.7.6 to 0.7.7 (or rather, from 0.7.1 to 0.7.6 to 0.7.7 for half of you)

  • Fixed "Getting stuck bug"
  • Fixed logging bug
  • Fixed UI crash
  • Fixed overflow in Multiplayer list + Some of beast's changes to server list (longer names)
  • Instantgib and All rockets disabled during single player startup
  • Clears nextmap after single player
  • Windows only: new SDL.dll allows Caps Lock and Num Lock to be used as keys.
  • Using protocol number 69, this should only now show servers running 0.7.7 (In other words, no more lotsofservers with 'invalid game folder' error)

more like gundam universe don't work with it!
I've tried several mods and they work and some don't because they're fussy and rely on specific irreplacable q3a content

this game is very platform friendly, try updateing your software, drivers, etc. I've been playing this on my mac for... a long time, and i've got my friends on their PC's playing too.
