Why does this cost money? - A quick web search will take you to the OpenArena website, where it's free. You can even download the code. Why then is money being charged for it on here?

Review by David heady

Game Over--Not Yet - I'm dropping my review of earlier this week, either I hadn't read the author's instructions about pulling the pak6-patch088.pk3 file from the OS X app package (by the way the correct path is (after right clicking on the program icon and selecting "Show Package Contents") /Contents/MacOS/baseq3) or he put it up after I did the upgrade. I'm going to give the benefit of doubt to him and say I just missed it. After removing that file the game works as it always has, quite well! While the version that launched with that file appeared to have a different set of graphics and features, I'm content with where the game is right now. Thanks for the bug fixes, not that I found any to begin with, and the work involved. My grandsons and daughter enjoys the game as well and have their own copies. Again, thanks.
