=========
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 arxlibertatis[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.

If you have already installed Arx Fatalis somewhere on your disk (e.g. inside a Windows partition or Wine prefix), then you can use this package to automatically extract and verify the game data and install it into /usr/share/arx so it can be used with the game binaries provided by the arxlibertatis package.

The original installation where the data files are copied from will not be modified.

It will work with any valid win32 Arx Fatalis installation, be it from the original CD, from Steam, from GOG.com, etc., as long as the official 1.21 patch[4] has been applied (the Steam and GOG.com versions already have it applied).

Specify the location of the existing game directory, by placing a symlink to it (named "Arx Fatalis") in the PKGBUILD folder.
