The purpose of this mod profile is to facilitate development of a technical audiovisual reboot of OpenArena. Releases will be committed back to the official game profile when playability has been reached.

The basic gist of it is:

  • Optimization and less bloat overall
  • Anime style for cleaner, stylized visual
  • Completely reworked aesthetic
  • Proper widescreen support
  • Lower system requirements
  • Higher production polish supported by a stronger art direction and coherent vision
  • 10ft/couch gaming support
  • Better single player

What's implemented:

  • Widescreen, with no limit on how wide your screen is. No 16:9 stretching. No losing vertical field of view, and no having to adjust field of view to compensate.
  • Client-side option to load alternate modest attire for the provocative characters, without needing to wreck the pak files
  • New optional particle system
  • Improved detail texture support, allowing detail layers to automatically apply to every surface
  • Much better first generation legacy 3D video card support (3dfx, s3, ATi, PowerVR). Paletted textures, modulated atlases, add->alpha parsing+conversions, etc.
  • Optimized flares, allowing fps to go into the hundreds on oa_pvomit with them enabled
  • Texture atlases to greatly reduce texture switching for animated special effects
  • libxmp for mod music playback
  • A UT-ish single player "ladder" spanning some of the different game modes and 'trophy' progression
  • Moving eyes :)

Targets:

  • Windows 10 to 95
  • All those Unix systems
  • Pentium MMX 200MHz with 3dfx Voodoo Graphics
  • 2500 triangle player models with one unblended texture
  • 100mb file size for the total solid compressed game
  • Possibly suitable for enthusiast ports like consoles and the Pi

quick faq!:

Q: Why not use engine X its prettier

A: engine switching is for the incompetent

Q: To sexy!!! I hate anime it's perverts

A: Anime style here means big eyes, big hair, big silhouettes and big clothes. it doesn't mean more skin.

Q: Is this ADULTS rated?

A: Tigrs was once a rating system. It had no "M for mature". All "this adults game" is misleading from the limited TIGRS system.
