It works great now. Thanks!

Package adopted, fixed and cleaned up!
Forget the deprecated instructions (and never run games as root!), all file manipulation happens in the jail folder ~/.nxengine now.

Do you intend to maintain this package anymore?

carstene1ns commented on 2014-02-16 20:58 also has the data files.
@rogueeve: You said a year ago, that you want to fix this package 'soon'. If you do not want to maintain it anymore, I would gladly adopt and try to fix it.

It looks like the program installed isn't compiled. You have to type 'sudo make' before running './nx'.

Sorry guys for neglecting this package for so long, I'll try to get it fixed properly soon.

I have the same problem as tkln. Does anyone know how to rectify it?

After installing the package pacman prints:
>>> --------------
>>> The game files are in the correct directories and can be extracted
>>> --------------
>>> In order to extract files for all users, goto
>>> /usr/share/nxengine/ and run ./nx
>>> as root in an X environment

But when I actually try to do that:
aapo ~ $ cd /usr/share/nxengine/; sudo ./nx
sudo: ./nx: command not found

aapo ~ $ nxengine
/usr/bin/nxengine: line 12: ./nx: No such file or directory
