@joemaro

Doing so would require doing the git operations in build(), which breaks pkgver(). My only suggestions are:

  1. Try the non-git package (1.06 right now, but I flagged it as out-of-date): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/flare-game/
  2. While not ideal, do the full download, but keep a cached copy so that subsequent updates aren't as large. Many AUR helpers will do this for you.

This pulls over 1 GB from github, be careful if you have limited bandwidth (like me). Isn't there a way to prevent it from pulling the whole git and limit it to what's currently needed?

@Singularity

I'm not seeing anything broken, and I was able to build, install, and run the game just fine. Is your issue with building the package, or is it when trying to run the game? If it's the latter, Flare's log file is located at ~/.config/flare/flare_log.txt.

unfortunately broken

Deleting "~/.config/flare/mod.txt" did the trick :)

I just did a clean build and install of the flare-engine-git and flare-game-git packages, but I'm not seeing an issue with mods not being activated. Do you get any console output when running Flare from the command line? Without knowing more, I'd say to try the following to troubleshoot:

- delete "~/.config/flare"
- delete "~/.local/share/flare"
- rebuild flare-engine-git

No mod is not activated ? Kind of tricky when you don't know, I'm actually struggling around when it seem so simple to do from git ; https://github.com/clintbellanger/flare-game

Should be fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out.

@flu

Yes, it was a .SRCINFO problem. Thanks for pointing it out. It should be fixed now.

@Cravix

The flare-game repo is fairly large, about 1.4 GiB. Using the git clone depth option, the download size is reduced to nearly half (715 MiB). Makepkg does not allow for this, so I've opted to do it manually.
