Has anyone got this to build with 0.60? TH is on sale at gog at the moment…

@gothmog.todi: Sorry, did not have time back then to fix it and have forgotten since. I have replaced the outdated FFMPEG stuff now based on the upstream patch. This should fix it.

@TheCycoONE: Thanks for your support. I hope to have a "real" 0.60 release soon to update to, but currently this package will stay at 0.50, because I like to have my packages at stable versions (even if this means I need to fix compilation after changes to dependency packages :D).

@gothmog.todi It looks like this package needs another patch from our repository to work with the version of ffmpeg that archlinux is currently using.

There are other movie related changes though, and at this point it might be better to bump the package to 0.60-rc1.

I have some trouble building this package. Maybe somebody has some pointers for me?

@TheCycoONE: Thanks for the patch! It fixes the intro movie.
About lua-socket: it was the 3.0-rc1 release at that time, but the Arch package is now built from git[1], so it should be resolved as well.

As for the lua-socket problems, does this occur with the latest lua-socket in the Arch Linux repositories? The 3.0-rc1 'release' version is known to be broken, but I haven't encountered problems with newer git versions of the library.

Please apply this patch:

It fixes a bug with the movie code that causes it to crash with ffmpeg 2.8+

Thank you, lua-socket wasn't used by any package, so I removed it and it works again, thank you again!

@Lucki: I actually had this error too when testing. It seems there is some incompatibility between the lua socket package that arch ships and corsix-th expects.
I will contact upstream and create a patch that disables the autoupdater for now.
Do you need the package 'lua-socket' at all? If no, just remove it and corsix-th will work, if yes, you can rebuild corsix-th with lua51 or lua52 in the meanwhile until this is sorted out.

I get this error and the game quits:
