Good catch, thank you! I included it in pkgrel 5. I just wonder why this folder has never been included by the previous maintainers, considering it has been updated to 2.7 a year ago[1] and nobody ever complained... :) [1]:

It segfaults on some maps. PKGBUILD fix: - cp -r campaigns doc graphics intro maps scripts sounds units "$pkgdir"/opt/bos + cp -r campaigns doc graphics intro maps patches scripts sounds units "$pkgdir"/opt/bos

Adopted and fixed the dependencies. The png files are fixed in the prepare() function.

Someone have filled a bug against boswars 2.7 that contains fixed images: I did not test it.

pauld commented on 2013-11-01 04:32 (UTC) suggest to use pngcrush -fix ... not sure if png-crush does better than optipng.
