It looks like you didn't install the base Doom 3 files. This won't come with Doom 3 itself, you'll need to buy it and copy appropriate files into /usr/share/games/doom3. See the message that should have displayed when you installed doom3-data:

Adding "mv "$pkgdir"/usr/lib64/ "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/" to the end of the package() secton, before the } and after the install, on a new line works. Not sure if it is the best way to do this, in fact not likely, but it works.

Package fails to install with:

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
dhewm3-git: /usr/lib64 exists in filesystem

This needs to be updated for new packaging standards.



pkgver() {
cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
git log -1 --format="%cd.g%h" --date=short | sed 's/-/./g'


build() {
cd "$srcdir"

cd "$srcdir/$_gitname"
patch -p1 < "$srcdir"/0001-game_data_location.patch

I accidentally flagged this as out of date as it looked to be a mere git snapshot on first impression. Sorry about that.
