I discovered a fork of the game, known as BrogueCE (community edition), which contains numerous game patches and improvements to the build process. I've uploaded a separate AUR package for this, found under "brogue-ce-git".

I have also been contemplating this. One one hand, the 1.7.5 release has several bugs, a couple of which considered game-breaking, and the author is not known to publish updates that frequently.

On the other hand, the when the developer does update to the next release, it wouldn't make sense to update my repository, lest there be more patches/fixes after the fact, meaning it may not be a good candidate in the long term as an upstream source.

@cubethethird I'm not sure whether we should modify this package or create a new one, but I'd like to thank you for applying those fixes and publishing that repository; excellent work. :)

I've created a fork of the game, to apply patches which fix bugs. It can be found here: https://github.com/CubeTheThird/brogue-linux

Any chance you could add a modified brogue.desktop to /usr/share/applications and copy bin/brogue-icon.png to /usr/share/pixmaps/brogue.png for the package?

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Brogue
GenericName=Roguelike
Comment=Brave the Dungeons of Doom!
Exec=/usr/bin/brogue
Path=/usr/share/brogue
Icon=brogue

Cheers.

Looks like 1.7.5 has been getting patched by the community to fix bugs: https://github.com/flend/brogue-windows/commits/master

I was gonna make an updated PKGBUILD to add those changes, but I'm wondering if that should be made into a separate AUR package, or could just be added here. Thoughts?

@Derphiderp and other people experiencing the following problem when attempting to start Brogue:

/usr/bin/brogue: line 6: 6492 Segmentation fault (core dumped) ./brogue "$@"

It is required to add your user to the user group 'games', and after this brogue will work once you have a new user session. (So log out and back in again).

Why brogue requires this, I do not know.

@keenerd your PKGBUILD is i386 set:
source=(https://sites.google.com/site/broguegame/brogue-1.7.4-linux-i386.tbz2
'brogue.sh')
instead of
source=(https://sites.google.com/site/broguegame/brogue-1.7.4-linux-amd64.tbz2
'brogue.sh')
and
md5sums=('8ef1d4b985b4e73685f52db80200262c'
'9de3fa32ba7fe562b0224417eaea5c26')

Thanks for updating this package. If you have any feedback on libtcod-151, I'd be interested - it's only for this package, after all.

keenerd commented on 2017-04-08 14:35

Thanks for making the 151 package.

Libtcod sadly has zero official docs for 1.6.X. Not even any corrections or updates to the doxygen stuff in the source repo. Patching out the SDL1 stuff works, but then instantly segfaults. Still haven't gotten to the bottom of that.
