Include the doc?

You can extract the manual from the release .exe or compile it from source by having an optional dependency requirement on texlive and the extra font package. Or see

Good day, I compiled the game using x86_64. When you mentioned the overflow error, you reminded me that it was the one I had, for some reason the patch I used fixed that bug, but I will try the other one you said to see if it still works well.

Deleted my last comment, as different issues got mixed. There is a buffer overflow directly at the start. See This was the issue I experienced and this patch will be included. Your problem is mentioned in and is architecture specific. On what platform do you try to build 7kaa GalaxyLJGD?

Good day, I wanted to report that when running the game it gives a coredump, I don't remember what the error message said (it was a few days ago), but I already found the solution to the problem, a patch used in Fedora. I updated the PKGBUILD to patch the source code and tested if it worked (it does), here are the links for you to see:

PKGBUILD gcc6_char_cast.patch

EDIT: changed patch file name.

Thanks for the note saverio. As this is a pretty straight forward I did the update myself. But sure, if you want to, I could add you as a co-maintainer :) Leave a note if you still intend to.

Hi, a new version of 7KAA is out (2.15.1). I tried to correctly update your building files. After that I cloned your repository and locally modified/updated your building files (PKGBUILD and .SRCINFO), then: - I was able to build the new version of the game; - I installed the package on my archlinux test system and it worked without errors; - I tested the game playing a match and it works very well. If you want, I can send you the updated building files via email or if possible, I'd like to be co-maintainer of this AUR package :) Do you agree? Thanks!

Great game, thanks to have brought it in AUR.

A new version is out:

Removed the depency on 7kaa-data. Not needed anymore (Got the pkgbuild the right way) But the newest src is missing the encyc files. Thats the reason, why the data files are downloaded with this pkgbuild Just to copy those encyc files

TrialnError commented on 2013-01-27 22:34 (UTC)

Updated the PKGBuild The game works, but it's not the right way Now the new version comes with the data files, so the extra package won't be neccessary. So I think But it's not implemented yet

7KAA Music Now Available 7kaa-music Updated packages: Fixes: 1) all readme files moved to /usr/share/doc/7kaa 2) fixed dependencies (now '7kaa' depends on '7kaa-data' and '7kaa-music' like other "$GAME-data" packages in community)

@diffycat: Thank you for your fixes.

@dario optdepends=('7kaa-data: original dataset')

commented on 2011-01-05 21:41 (UTC)

same problem as kurrata here, fixed by installing 7kaa-data after short googling, but probably you could somehow include a message saying that 7kaa-data is not automatically installed, e.g. in pacman after installing some packages show a message...

zsh 316 % 7kaa err:FileIO: [File::file_open] error opening file: resource/pal_std.res /usr/bin/7kaa: Zeile 3: 5240 Speicherzugriffsfehler ./7kaa I have the same error as singral. Installed both 7kaa and 7kaa-data fine, first time with clyde, then via makepkg -s.

matthewbauer commented on 2010-08-30 00:30 (UTC)

I had to add this line to the PKGBUILD before ./ because I have moreutils installed which has a conflicting parallel binary: sed -i 's/^my $parallel/#my $parallel/' ''

commented on 2010-08-19 17:40 (UTC)

Note on my last comment: 'lib32-openal' and 'openal' are both installed.

Could you please add arch=('x86_64') to the build?

xnitropl commented on 2010-08-16 07:03 (UTC)

Do you have installed the 7kaa-data?

kurrata commented on 2010-08-16 02:38 (UTC)
