You can download it here! (405mb) or get the patch here! (70mb, requires 0.8.5)

I should also probably mention that we need help: OpenArena is entering a reboot phase in which we excise all low quality assets and have a focus on quality control. Visit the site if you want to contribute, check the help wanted for more information.

Alot of 088's reported bugs come from the autodownloaded 085 patch pk3 found in the HOME/baseoa folder, since home takes priority in overriding files in the GAME/baseoa folder. This 'reverts' 088 changes and is a badbadbad bad bad badbad bad bad bad bad thing to do.

i don't think the picture used for the news ticker thing is appropriate considering there's buttocks exposed by thong. a better one, involving said cat, seen in the news post, is advisable for the front page.

If someone has a problem with a bottom then they shouldn't even be here.

Please, if anything sums up your mod it would be that picture. The preview image you posted is not big enough for the rotator. If you have something you want replaced too let me know over PM.

a) It is not a mod.

b) 1920x1080 = not big enough?

c) Where does a person get off making assumptions about what "sums up" their work? The ticker image choice is Mod DB's but don't defend your selection with an attitude that makes it sound like you presume to know more about someone's project than they do themself.

Tis a joke, the preview image is the one that is used when creating the news post. Not the images inside the post.
