I don't know what's wrong, I have downloaded the latest version (Uploaded September 7th, 2020). I had OpenJK before. It did not function like this. It worked. I'm not sure what is wrong now. I hope the information I have listed was enough.

In the message, I see that your location for OpenJK is F:\OpenJK\base (correct me if I'm wrong). Did you put OpenJK in the GameData folder of the game?

I feel stupid. 

No, I did not. I made a folder for OpenJK and I put the OpenJK files in that folder. I did that because I did not want any files to conflict with base JA. I fixed this issue by simply copying my Base folder to where I have OpenJK.
