PSA: There is a rewrite in progress and this package will not be updated until there is a release. If you flag it out of date, I'm just going to unflag it, so don't bother.

Update: The upstream pre-rewrite branch was the old master branch before the rewrite. Unfortunately, it fails to build.

@rien333: highscore 40.0 and gnome-games 40.0 are virtually identical, anyway.

https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/highscore/-/archive/40.0/highscore-40.0.tar.gz returns a 404 now, probably related to the rewrites.

This a working URL with some archival copies, but these predate the rebrand:

@yochananmarqos Nice, and noted. I just wanted to give it a go and since I had an issue, reported it.

@igor-dyatlov: Improved PKGBUILD

This does not require cmake.

Kodi addons are for Kodi.

Are those actually libretro cores? I thought they shipped as *.so's.Do Kodi addons actually work with this?

@MischiefTomato: It was recently fixed in this commit.

EDIT: I'd say just use gnome-games as this is identical right now. Arch has a patch for it as well as a patch to user tracker3 instead of the deprecated tracker: https://github.com/archlinux/svntogit-community/tree/packages/gnome-games/trunk

highscore-40.0/data/meson.build:47:0: ERROR: Function does not take positional arguments.
