You can't download the ioquake3 patches via script (try curl or wget, it just downloads HTML). It looks like it works if you spoof the referral header, but then it would need to be a separate curl or wget command in the PKGBUILD instead of just the URL as part of the sources array. We would also need to manually compute and check that the checksum matches instead of makepkg doing it automatically. That could be done, but I don't know if the end result is any neater :)

Just noticed the q3a.service error is actually from upstream, my bad! I've reported it!

zeroxfourc commented on 2017-09-04 16:30

Also, perhaps we should use the patch package ioquake3 provides?

It probably doesn't matter either way, but I think it feels neater :)

The q3a.service file doesn't work:

This packages is using Git, so the package itself doesn't need an upgrade.

Just a side note:
If you have any gamepad/joystick connected the game wont start, you got only a blank screen/window.
You have to set in_joystick "1", then it will start properly.

Hello,

More suggested changes: http://pastie.org/10756399

* Remove obsolete speex dependency
* Honor CPPFLAGS from makepkg.conf

I also noticed that the code starting from pre_remove() seems unneeded in quake3.install.

The new PKGBUILD with SDL2 works for me perfect. My performance in also increased around 5%, looks good.
