@maxigaz After downgrading scons to 4.4.0 4 (from 4.6.0 1) this built successfully for me.

When I try installing this packages, build fails with the following error:

TypeError: can only concatenate deque (not "list") to deque:

By looking at the comments for d1x-rebirth, I see that someone had the same issue as mine. (Even the last ~24 lines of the terminal output posted there match.)

Star-X try the new version now, it looks good to me.

So as is, this entry is broken. Main reason why: the version it requests no longer exists on the dxx-rebirth servers.

Changing the build to one of the more recent versions, namely 20220522, will give you errors about opengl not being installed in sdl (likely because of it not being specified properly in the build). This gets fixed by adding sdlmixer=yes opengl=yes sdl2=yes to right after scons in the pkgbuild.

Trying to compile with the above fix then hits you with an error about the automap source file. Nothing seems to fix this, as it's a bug that while it was supposedly fixed upstream, doesn't seem to have actually been fixed for Arch Linux.

I'm at my wits' end. The build I currently have installed no longer has a Windows binary archive, meaning I can't play multiplayer with my mom, as the oldest Windows build is still 1 protocol version above what I can use, and compiling later builds seems to be completely impossible on Arch Linux. I even looked into DXX-Retro, a fork of DXX-Rebirth, which has a completely borked SConstruct file that seems to have been written by 500 monkeys with a typewriter, and even tried the most unthinkable solution of compiling DXX-Rebirth in the Steam Runtime using Docker, which also has nothing but problems with Sconstruct.

Honestly at this point I'm considering just using DOSBox to run the damn game, as no other method currently in existence actually will work for cross platform multiplayer, all because of MOTHERFRACKING PYTHON ERHYSDFGFSDHGBERFSDYHERSh

The dependency on sdl_image is missing.
