Careful: I tested this with UT99, and while a lot of the game works, some parts aren't exactly great (e.g. crash on Alt+Tab and mouse look is bounded by the mouse reaching the screen border; didn't try a lot of gaming due to that). You're probably better off with the full sdl 1.2!

@shoober420: Thanks for the hint! I've updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

@dreieck (in non-lib32 variant): I've updated the PKGBUILD. Sorry for the late action, it seems the notification got lost somewhere or I just forgot about it :(

I applied both changes to this package and the non-lib32 variant as well.

@archi42

Could you please update the source link to “git+ https://github.com/libsdl-org/sdl12-compat

Thank you for this package. This is a really cool alternative when a program you like hasn’t updated to sdl2 yet. Freesynd and uhexen2 come to mind.

I highly recommend the UT469 patch to play UT.
