  1. OSX 10.7.5 and later may require an extra step in order to run it, being and "unsigned app": please read Manual/Install#Mac .
  2. If you are using Microsoft Windows 8.1 and you are experiencing "mouse lag" problems (mouse lag and unresponsiveness of player view and cursor in menus at slow speed), please read here for a specific workaround.
  3. Important note: if you have patch pak6-patch085.pk3 file in your homepath/baseoa folder (homepath is your configuration and autodownloaded files folder), you should either move it to your basepath/baseoa folder (basepath is your OpenArena installation directory), or place also pak6-patch088.pk3 under your homepath folder. If 085 patch is under homepath and 088 patch is under basepath folder, you will experience problems! It's strongly advisable to place both patches in the same folder!
