There's something weird when gzdoom is compiled from AUR, P2P networking mode don't work for 3+ players, it just gets stuck on "waiting for number" with number being a random player number each time, and the client/server mode just ends up being out of sync, none of these problems are present if I download the source code from site and compile manually.

Added the fix from upstream.

EDIT: This has been fixed upstream (SHARE_DIR was added back) and should be included in the next version.

The issue mentioned by maxlefou also affects new installations of GZDoom without a configuration file. GZDoom 3.2.1+ no longer searchs SHARE_DIR as part of the default [FileSearch.Directories]:

stat("./gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670)    = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/home/dosamp/.config/gzdoom/gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/usr/local/share/doom/gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/usr/local/share/games/doom/gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/usr/share/doom/gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
stat("/usr/share/games/doom/gzdoom.pk3", 0x7ffdf29f8670) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

The only solution for the current version is to either

  • not use the /usr/share/gzdoom directory: define INSTALL_PK3_PATH as share/doom (and SHARE_DIR as /usr/share/doom) so the GZDoom PK3 files are installed in the well known /usr/share/doom directory
  • patch src/gameconfigfile.cpp to add /usr/share/gzdoom to the list of default file search directories.

openal should not be listed as an optional dependency in the PKGBUILD because it is required to hear in-game audio.

Looks good now, thanks.

grubber commented on 2018-01-10 06:40

My bad. Fixed, hopefully.

After every update I need to run "sudo mogrify -resize 48x48 /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/gzdoom.xpm"

Anyone else getting huge icons in the menus on xfce?

maxlefou, it seems you have outdated configuration, make sure /usr/share/gzdoom is listed in the [FileSearch.Directories] section in ~/.config/gzdoom/gzdoom.ini, like this:

[FileSearch.Directories] Path=~/.config/gzdoom Path=/usr/share/gzdoom Path=$DOOMWADDIR

Error when launching gzdoom: GZDoom g3.2.4-m - 2017-12-16 20:24:48 -0500 - SDL version Compiled on Dec 30 2017

M_LoadDefaults: Load system defaults. Cannot find gzdoom.pk3

But gzdoom.pk3 is present, in /usr/share/gzdoom

Plz fix

hey, might want to update this to 3.2.4. Changes include some fixes to security bugs.
