It seems that the upstream URL is gone, and the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” are missing.

There is also an error in the PKGBUILD: the permissions for the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” should be 666 (they are used by Crafty for learning) – and they should be listed within the “backup” array of the PKGBUILD.

Therefore I made a new PKGBUILD trying to fix everything. But since the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” are missing I preserved them inside the tarball. For downloading it, please see:

For the PKGBUILD only, please see:

Also the "Upstream URL" should be changed in this case.

You must run mksrcinfo with every PKGBUILD update.
That's why the version field isn't updated (to 24.1).
Ignore out-of-date flag, run mksrcinfo and push it.

There's a 24.1 version as of November. Install works perfectly by simply changing pkgver and the md5sum.
