@McLenin: Thanks for the heads-up. I did not realize there is a new version as there has not been any announcement on the author's homepage.

This package needs an update to version 160214 with the corresponding checksum update.

Also I had to add CXXFLAGS="-I/usr/include/libmodplug/" to the configure command to get it to compile. This goes both for the stable and svn version

The working line was
./configure --prefix=/usr CXXFLAGS="-I/usr/include/libmodplug/"

Adopted and updated. I created a patch to allow loading of game files from different locations.
You can now put them in '/usr/share/openjazz/' for global installation or in '~/.openjazz' only for yourself. OpenJazz will also load game files from the folder where it has been launched and save it's config file there, too.
This can have unwanted side effects (config not saved/loaded, clutter of openjazz.cfg files), so it is best approach to launch it from the same folder every time (default is your home directory).
All filenames are expected to be lowercase!

I would like to adopt and update it. Please orphan.

@ALSimon: I'm willing to disown the package if you can maintain it.

I had the followinf error when trying to install :
/usr/bin/ld: src/main.o: référence au symbole non défini «sinf@@GLIBC_2.2.5»
/usr/bin/ld: note: «sinf@@GLIBC_2.2.5» est défini dans le DSO /usr/lib/ donc essayez de l'ajouter à la ligne de commande du lieur
/usr/lib/ could not read symbols: Opération invalide
collect2: erreur: ld a retourné 1 code d'état d'exécution
make: *** [OpenJazz] Erreur 1

I have to modify LDFLAGS to add "-lm" for the PKGBUILD to work.

Updated the PKGBUILD. Thank you, gthomas.

A new version came out, the old source zip is deleted, so here is the updated PKGBUILD:

# Contributor: Paul Dino Jones "ZitZ" <>
pkgdesc="A free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit(TM) games."
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
depends=('sdl' 'libmodplug')

build() {
cd $srcdir

export CXXFLAGS="-DUSE_MODPLUG `pkg-config --cflags libmodplug`"
export LDFLAGS=`pkg-config --libs libmodplug`

make -f Makefile.debian
mkdir -p $startdir/pkg/usr/{bin,share/openjazz/data}
install -m755 $srcdir/OpenJazz $startdir/pkg/usr/share/openjazz/
install $srcdir/openjazz.000 $startdir/pkg/usr/share/openjazz/
