Could you please update the PKGBUILD? As mentioned in the "out-of-date": It's a newer version (setup_nwn_diamond_2.1.0.21) with only one *.bin file! Thanks!

You shouldn't use the outdated 'if [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]' method for architecture-specific sources, anymore, as it can cause problems for the AUR database and AUR helpers.

Instead, use:

What are you talking about?
Using the gog:// protocol in the source array is the proper way to do it.

It has zero disadvantages compared to using no protocol at all. With no protocol, you would *have* to manually copy the source files into the PKGBUILD directory, and with the protocol you can still do that.

But what you can *also* do now, is to define a custom DLAGENT in /etc/makepkg.conf.
You could define a dlagent that uses lgogdownloader for such URLs, but personally I prefer to use the following dlagent for hib:// and gog:// URLs which finds the files in my ~/download folder and subdirectories thereof:

I also attempted to try to see if I could do anything with the gog:// URIs to no avail. What I eventually ended up doing was using lgogdownloader just to download the neverwinter_nights_diamond_edition folder to my system, I put a quick and dirty HTTP server up (nginx), and then I moved that folder into the HTTP directory, modified the PKGBUILD to point to the local http sources, and then it got me on my way. I ran a makepkg on that modified PKGBUILD and installed with sudo pacman -U.

Whoever decided to use the gog:// URI for source files created a world of headache for anyone attempting to use this package. Luckily, it's still less of a headache than trying to set up NWN for native linux without something like this.

I've been trying to install this via yaourt.
I'm getting the following error:

==> Building and installing package
==> Making package: nwn-gog (Fri Jun 17 19:42:26 CDT 2016)
==> Checking runtime dependencies...
==> Checking buildtime dependencies...
==> Retrieving sources...
==> ERROR: Unknown download protocol: gog
==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build nwn-gog.
==> Restart building nwn-gog ? [y/N]

I have installed lgogdownloader, but this doesn't seem to have helped.

Hi, thanks you very much for this work! I have ported your package to Nix package manager: Some improvements you may want to take back:

1. (-m option to avoid extracting tmp/)
2. (bigger list of things to remove)
3. (video scaling by default, overridable)
