With the latest version you should nuke ~/.local/share/flashpoint, since it contains redundant files
edit: make sure to copy your favorites!

I RECOMMEND https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/datahub/Linux_Support UNTIL MAINTANED AGAIN

Orphaned because I clouldnt get the latst data files to work. I added a PKGBUILD-dev so the next maintainer can try to fix it. Also please unpin this and make a own pinned one (you can copy the contents) Also make and link you own version of the installer script if you want to use it. Mine wont be updated.

DISCLAIMER

Flashpoint on Linux is generally unstable.

Flashpoint 10 is especially unstable and requires workarounds and extra setup. I am trying my best to keep this package working, fixes, error reports and suggestions are welcome.

If you want a more stable package or a temporary fallback on problems I recommend the outdated, but more stable flashpoint-bin.

Introductions:
  1. Install data files via "flashpoint-data-files-installer install" and wait until the process has finished
  2. Start Flashpoint
  3. Go to config Tab
  4. Set Flashpoint Path to "/home/<user>/.local/share/flashpoint"
  5. Scroll down and press "Save and restart"
  6. Enjoy flash games
Known Potential Problems:
  • Native Flash doesn't work

@edinowork good luck

Note that you have to also update the data files, they are out of date too (current done via a script on my gh, make a own copy in a repo since I wont update it, as far as i know, you are not allowed to have it here eigther), the -dev tries to get the data files directly, but it doesnt work on my pc.

Also dont forget to make your own pinned comment. If you have a question, write me an email or preferably a matrix message @lesnake:matrix.org

I'll try to maintain this, beware this is my first time doing anything with maintaining an AUR package

LeSnake commented on 2022-08-26 20:31 (UTC)

Going to orphan this, anyone who wants to maintain, see pinned for notes and take a look into MAKEPKG-dev

LeSnake commented on 2022-08-01 14:13 (UTC)

Sorry for my late response. I get home in the next days and can update the package. I also have a nearly done update on my drive regarding putting the data files in the package (the docs got updated) and fixing the dependencies.

Co-Maintainers are always welcome (if someone is interested just write a comment) and i probably orphan flashpoint-launcher-git after fixing the deps over there because I don't like working on the git version and already have way to much projects open in general.

@evdinowork Have you considered sending an orphan request and then adopting this package? The maintainer didn't log in since the 25th of March, also the no longer existing qemu-arch-extra package should be replaced with qemu-system-x86

this patch to update flashpoint works great for me

/opt/Flashpoint/config.json should also be added to the backup files, so user changes don't get clobbered.

@LeSnake flashpoint-data-files-installer was renamed to flashpoint-install-data-files. Should probably update your instructions
