@nstickney: Thanks, your help is appreciated! Also, awesome that you're introducing shellcheck! I've been using it for a while, but never in a PKGBUILD.

You're comaintainer now. I've already pushed your changes.

@wookietreiber I had issues downloading the git repo source (not sure why), but I realized that it's easy (and probably quicker) to just get the compressed source from github based on the release tag. A fully working PKGBUILD (I also ran shellcheck) is available here:

If you want to make me a co-maintainer, I'll push it direct.

If anyone wants to co-maintain, let me know.

@wookietreiber Thank you for your answer, removing the ~/.dwarffortress directory fixed it.

@tommy0010 It might be necessary for you do remove (backup) your existing ~/.dwarffortress directory. I recommend that and then merge the configs.

Yes, its on purpose that the names clash as the *only* difference between the packages is the addition of the tileset. Thus, you can either install *dwarffortress* with no tilesets, or *dwarffortress-tilesetname* for exactly the same package with the addition of the tileset. If the dwarffortress installation with the symlink to the home directory wouldn't be that weird I'd recommend on the tileset packages including **just** the tileset and nothing more.

It seems the tileset isn't applied on my computer. I can only see the default characters.
Additionally the executable and data directory are named "dwarffortress" now instead of "dwarffortress-ironhand". As the normal dwarffortress is listed as conflicting package you can't install both at the same time anyway. Is that intended and necessary?

For some reason, "download.php?id=11348&" fails the sha256sum. I downloaded it with makepkg -sri, and also through the sources link, and the sums matched both times. What do you guys think is wrong? Does this package need to be updated?

Thanks @Extremeadin. I opted to use the tagged version with the patch instead.

I've made an updated PKGBUILD for the most recent version. I updated the download URL for the ironhand tileset. I also had to switch to the master branch for the github code, as the 42.06 branch won't compile.
