========= INTRODUCTION =========

Arx Fatalis[1] is a proprietary first-person role-playing game for Win32.

The game binaries have been open-sourced, and meanwhile ported to Linux by the Arx Libertatis[2] project (available in AUR via the arx-libertatis[3] package). However, the game data is still proprietary and can only be acquired by buying the full Win32 version of the game from GOG.com, Steam, or other sources.

This package installs the game data by extracting it directly from the 'setup_arx_fatalis.exe' archive that can be bought from GOG.com[4].

It will be installed into /usr/share/arx so that it can be used with the game binaries provided by the arx-libertatis package.

You need to provide your copy of the 'setup_arx_fatalis.exe' archive, by either manually copying or symlinking it into the PKGBUILD directory, or defining a custom gog:// dlagent in /etc/makepkg.conf.

@smls

Thank you.

Sadly, I get a new error

@MartinX3: I fixed the checksum, but it still expects the old version (1.21) of the GOG installer. Will look into updating to 1.22 later.

In the meantime, you can install the GOG installer using wine, and then use arx-fatalis-data-copy to turn the installation into an Arch package.

@Basxto

No, "en1installer0" is part of the GOG download URL, but it downloads as "setup_arx_fatalis_2.0.0.7.exe" (not sure how that's implemented, I guess either a HTTP redirect or a HTTP Content-Disposition header).

I have to use the downloaded installer name in the PKGBUILD, so that it works when people manually download it.

I don't use gogdownloader myself, are you saying it can cope with this?
I use instead the following gog DLAGENT (specified in /etc/makepkg.conf) that simply finds files in my ~/downloads folder: http://pastebin.com/raw/Brz8THUG

The name of the installer has changed.

source=($_gamepkg::"gogdownloader://arx_fatalis/en1installer0"
