Issues with licensing and dead links aside, the title of this package is rather deceptive. fmodex and libfmod are two different things.

fmodex and/or libfmodex are the older legacy versions, and not to be confused with libfmod, as they are not compatible APIs.

I registered and logged in to the site https://www.fmod.com/download but they have fmodstudioapi, not fmodapi.

I'm aware of this and left a respective note in the PKGBUILD. Initially I had figured out a way to automaticall download the source via a fake user, but after consulting the forum[1] decided to follow the suggestion to leave the task to the user. You can just register via 10minutemail or fakemailgenerator.

The source link is not available anymore to non-registered user. Update link accordingly or see if there is a different source available (or a way to deal with Fmod Studio about it).

The source file is not accessible for non-registered users any more.

Actually the package layout is intentional. Most programs that depend on the fmodex package only actually require some of the libs. fmodex however also provides some binaries and other stuff which I see no point in keeping around when only the libs are required.
In most cases you can safely set a package depending on fmodex to depend on libfmod instead.

Hey, you can move this package to libfmodevent, and install only libfmodevent*.so files. This avoid fmodex conflicts.

I am aware installing this package will break quite some packages requiring fmodex but the fmodex package lacks the fmodevent libs, which are also required by some games.
Also I don't see why I should install all the sources, if I only need the libraries.
That's why I created this package. There's lib32-libfmod, too.
