First
Hello everyone.
Second
My friend has started playing OA on a windows machine. I use Linux (ubuntu) and we can't play on the same server. He has a completely different list to me. We have tried entering server id but he can't connect to them. Anyone got any ideas? Is it possible? I know he should use Linux but he won't.(Says he is scared)

Thanks in advance.

OK, I'll play Mr Obvious and try to answer this easy one (in principle).

I bet you have different versions of the game. Last version in 0.7.7. You or your friend has to upgrade and everything should be fine.

First, is this the second comming? :D

Second, ye. Ppl that have 0.7.7 cant see the servers older versions can see and viceversa.

Third, you can choose the game types on servers in the server browser, make sure you both have the same version of the game and you both have all (or same) gametype servers listed in the server browser.

Well it's very likely that he runs OA 0.7.7 while ubuntu still containes 0.7.1... Both version are incompatible... You can download 0.7.7 for Linux from openarena.ws or just wait until ubuntu updates...

on (most likely) 08-08-2008 there will be OA 0.8.0 available.. dunno when ubuntu will include that...
