The installation of this package fails, when you have the binary version already installed. Please add conflict with heroic-games-launcher-bin.

@flaviofearn I'm just another user as far as this package goes, and it doesn't bother me to have these three packages as options because their differences are well explained. But, it's is even better to know that you are the dev for that awesome software. You might just comment on the -bin package to let the world know that you are the the dev/maintainer for that one. (Having alternatives is a compliment because it means you're a thing that's sought after.)

@flaviofearn Hiya, Having multiple versions on the AUR is fine, as long as they're named correctly, and as this one already is, it makes sense to keep it up!

Some users may wish to compile locally, so that they can be sure that the software they are running is indeed the one from the codebase they expect, so for those users, a regular <package> AUR entry is made For those who wish to have the latest and greatest at all times, <package>-git is made, and for those who are fine with downloading a precompiled binary from the developer, a <package>-bin is made.

Hope this helps!

Hey, I am the developer of Heroic Games launcher and there is already a package here on AUR called heroic-games-launcher-bin, looking at the source of this one, it is not different from the official one. Because even if you compile Heroic on your machine, it makes no difference since it is an Electron App and is not optimized for the operating system. So I believe it will be confusing to the users if we have both packages. So can you please remove this one?
