why does open arena not work with my HDMI?

It gives me a black screen also how do I get sound to work it just gives me a crackling noise. The black screen shows up after the intro.

HDMI is dependent on the hardware not the software you use.

So the video shows fine in the intro then a black screen after that? If that is the case then there is an issue with the software not the hardware. As for the sound if the PC is not configured right or the video card doesn't support sound through HDMI, as most don't, then you won't get HDMI sound.

yeah it won't even let me start open arena after the intro
Then it's a software issue and you'll need to see if there is a wiki or a forum dedicated tot he application that can help you out with that.

I asked the question on the raspberry pi forums and only got one response but confused as to solving the issue the topic is: hdmi problems with open arena
Have you read the Open Arena page on the Pi Store? Your answer to the sound and possible video problem is mentioned under the Advice section. Also check the comments for problems others are having and solutions.
