@MoroS: I believe the id Software FTP was shut down late last year. Google for "RIP ftp.idsoftware.com"

I updated the mirror.

Is it just me or is the FTP mirror down? I've got by it eventually downloading the .run file from ModDB (checksum's the same), but trying to connect to id's FTP just hang in there for minutes (trying to connect, not downloading).

No, I dont know, I dont played doom3 for about a 3 years :)

But I could test it by possibility....

Have you tried the bundled libraries? Do they work? I don't remember why they were removed in the first place, but if they work, then I'll change the PKGBUILD.

The latest Arch News says, that there be a new ABI for libstdc++. The new version of a library has a dual ABI. But there could be a problem if a binary are linked against the libraries, that uses the new one ABI of libstdc++.

In this package the bundled libraries are removed. How about the idea to preserve the bundled ones?

That's a good point, I didn't consider that. Thanks for the package again, it's great to revisit these time to time!

As far as I know, this shouldn't have any downsides compared with the original/unpatched source package, unless recompiling it on a modern system with modern compilers gives a performance boost. It's also possible the source release has some fixes never rolled into a Linux patch, but I can't speak to that. I'm not an expert on DooM3 stuff :)

My bad you're correct, I meant that it fetched OK. Is there any downside to this version compared to the GPL one? I'm not sure if there is, but having all the features is nice.
