Description of OpenArena 0.8.1

EditByBSEditor: OpenArena is a Free Open content package for the id tech3 GPL source code package. But why is it a game? Well you see one of the great side effects of making content for a bunch of source code out there is that it becomes a playable game itself. This opens more opportunity for FUN to the end user because they have another option to Play a game that you couldn't play without the data because now there is data made for it. And since this data created is also FREE, it's very redistributable. Meaning more people can play it with little effort on obtaining it. This is A Good Thing.

The gameplay is identical to the game it's based on so fans of that other game should feel at home here. We do not intend to change the Physics of the game. If you feel there is a change of physics of input smoothness, you can blame the ioquake3 team, not us; we just make MD3s and TGAs, compile the code and put it out there.

OpenArena is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 meaning you can change stuff in it but you gotta redistribute the source of your changes, or don't Do It at all and we'll then do some nasty pitchfork-related things to you. It's happened before. Trust me. But what is the source defined as then if it's GPL? For code we do actually have C files you can read, edit and compile yourself, and for md3 models we usually accompany the original .blend files with them where available. For sound effects they are usually lossless and done as a single layer without a project file so mostly they are their own source. Music is done in a tracker format, but since we have no music and people think tracker is obsolete we have no music in the game. Textures are like sounds in the fact if they are lossless without Layers they are their own source, but if they have had layers then the layered (PSD, XCF) file is supplied in the SVN.

Requirements: Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
Platform: PowerPC / Intel
