...Please be patient. :)

!Update 14/07/2019: Will be pushing a updated PKGBUILD soon, updating the package to support Roslyn(msbuild). I have been forced to disable RA2 for now, see my replies below as to why.

@fusion809: Sorry, ive been exceptionally busy IRL. Havent had time to work on anything. Currently my only working workstation Arch installation is on a experimental WSL. I will attempt to update this, but i cant get Roslyn to compile yet, to test what changes need to be made (Why couldn't they just test the environment and choose mono-roslyn or just mono if roslyn is not present...) - !Ive managed to get msbuild from a debian repo to work, not ideal but given the state of things, it was better than not fixing this...!

I was considering adding TBSun, but i havent had the time to contribute to this yet and test that R2 is still working. Again, i only included them as they will be included in the future anyways. - !NOTE: Ive had to temporarily disable R2, as im currently having difficulty getting it to build alongside upstream code. Due to a incompatibility with the version of .net it chooses (4.5 vs 4.6), i will review further, but any help would drastically speed up the process.

@Arthur2e5: I removed D2, as its already has a package here thats working (openra-d2-git). i didnt want to tread on others feet, more so when im barely maintaining this. Again, i will accept co-maintainers. i just cant dedicate much time to my packages at this time.

I will look into the patch suggestion you made, after i get a working build environment. (Note: there suggestion of using the modsdk, locks the version at the current "Stable" branch. which defeats the purpose of including it in this package. Libraries built against stable do not work with BLEED branch binaries. Ive experimented with this in the past, and its why i included D2/RA2 in the first place.) - !NOTE: as with above, i cant get it to build with current changes to the build system. I really dont have time to debug it, but its related to calling a different version of .net(4.6) than the version used to build the engine (4.5). i dont know how to specify this or restrict it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as it will take me weeks to dig up how.

You may wish to update this PKGBUILD, as their build system has been updated, they now use the Roslyn compiler.

@fusion809: ts is always built (i think), you just need to pass Game.Mod=ts to the main program. There is a ./launch-game.sh script in the game that gives you a zenity UI for that.


@EndlessEden: They changed the structure for D2 a bit. Every config and resource to be put in mods/d2 is now in the mods/d2 folder under the D2 tree, so a simple cp -rf will do. It's similar to how they arrange the ra2 tree now. (Oh lcronos mentioned it already)

Also, you may want to pop in 3 lines of patches for d2 and ra2 into the zenity launcher script. I opened https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/issues/16439 to maybe make the shortcuts/mimefiles/etc more friendly for mod addition, but don't count on me to finish the TODO.

fusion809 commented on 2019-03-26 16:54

OK, if you want a mod that's experimental and will become a mainstream mod distributed with the others when ready what about Tiberian Sun? It is provided by the OpenRA repo too so it'll be especially easy to provide in this package.

EndlessEden commented on 2019-03-23 23:29

@fusion809: I wouldnt recommend splitting the packages (1: Build Req's, 2: it will be merged into openra when finished anyways)

I do have a updated and working pkgbuild, but no free-time to push it upstream. ill attempt later today.

fusion809 commented on 2019-03-23 11:11

Might I propose that d2 and ra2 be separated into separate packages? I'd be willing to maintain this package and I've created openra-d2-git and openra-ra2-git packages https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/openra-d2-git, https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/openra-ra2-git. After all, splitting it up gives users more freedom, to decide what they install and what they don't.

lcronos commented on 2018-11-18 17:38

@Enverex That can be fixed by changing the PKGBUILD. At the very bottom, where it copies the D2 mod files over, comment all but the first copy command, then add one that looks like the 2nd one from the ra2 section above.

 ### adding DuneII to OpenRA
  if [ ! -d $pkgdir/usr/lib/openra/mods/d2 ]; then
  mkdir $pkgdir/usr/lib/openra/mods/d2
  fi
  cp -rf $srcdir/D2/OpenRA.Mods*  $pkgdir/usr/lib/openra/mods/d2 
  cp -rf $srcdir/D2/mods/d2 $pkgdir/usr/lib/openra/mods/d2

That said, I have not been able to actually run the mods from the installed launcher. I can get both games to launch from src/D2/launch-game.sh and src/RA2/launch-game.sh.

For Dune2 you will need to download a copy of Dune2 from somewhere (it's freeware, so not hard to find) and copy over the .PAK files mentioned here into ~/.openra/Content/d2

Enverex commented on 2018-05-22 22:54

Looks like something may have changed with the Dune 2 content as it now fails to package:

cp: cannot stat '/var/tmp/makepkg/openra-git/src/D2/*.yaml': No such file or directory

@Enverex - I did plan to remove them, i just haven't had time. Anyone can feel free to send me patches and suggestions. I will try to incorporate them were they feel right.

@mailme45 - From the openra client - openra -mod ra2 (or -mod RA2 [im not sure, as its been 6+months])

@promoke - Sorry, its not easy to balance logging and work. Alot of my updates dont get proper notes, as i forget what ive done in my haste. - As far as RA2, i Did test it, it does launch, etc. but i was unable to test it very thoroughly. It can be launched via -mod RA2

<hr>

I will do what i can to add a launcher, etc for RA2/etc asap.
