For those writing about weird behavior in the PKGBUILD, and those who noted that the checksum for the archive is missing, I've been working on a separate project that just downloads the factorio archive, with little to no interaction. It's already on the AUR:; and I have an appropriate PKGBUILD for factorio-experimental and factorio (stable) as well:

Would it be possible to have a way to install the package without user input? I often find myself launching a bunch of upgrades at once and come back later just to find that this package is waiting for input. This a bit frustrating, especially when all you need to type is the Enter key. Thanks!

The script doesn't have a check if the player-data.json file exists in the specified settings folder. On a clean install the .factorio folder isn't available so the script fails.

Perhaps add a check to the script for creating the .factorio folder in the home profile so that this error is resolved.

Great work on maintaining this package btw!

Would it be possible to also offer the server settings from factorio-headless-experimental in addition to factorio.desktop? I'd like to run a server on my computer and also connect to it and it that's currently impossible right now with this package.

It worked, thanks!

@ypoluektovich I've now updated the PKGBUILD, give it a try!

There seems to also be a reference to some API to exchange credentials for the token, that'll be helpful for first time installs.

Amazing, it means I can now grab the service token from player-data.json and don't even have to ask for credentials

Could this thread be helpful in bringing it back?

Well, they added a reCAPTCHA to the login page so it's not coming back, sorry.
