Turns out run.sh was looking for CoherentUI_Host.bin which wasn't there. I copied the one from the Steam sandbox. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not but it runs.

This one blank screens for me whereas 66567 (and 66830 in Steam sanbox) did/does not. I wish I knew how to find out why.

For those interested: planetary-annihilation-pte is a cli launcher that lets you pick between the stable channel, and the PTE channel. The latter contains newer code (and some fixes with open source drivers/intel cards).

@mcxplode I gave it a try[1], but the launcher is broken and assumes there's local native IPv4 connectivity:

$ go run /opt/PA-pte/papatcher.go
setting GOMAXPROCS to 4

Lol would be nice to have separate hacked launcher to update PA files from archive.
SXX posted something about using William.

"If dependency on golang isn't bug problem you can integrate William launcher in it I think."

@mcxplode Thanks! Regarding not recompressing everything, I don't think it'll be possible unless I use some nasty hack that requires the package AND the tarball together at install time (planetary-annihilation.install would do the moving). But it's too hackish and pacman won't track file ownership if I do so.

nice shiny build for Arch, now only thing to figure out is magic trick where you don't have to extract files from PA bz2 archive then recompress them into xz archive. PA build getting damn big.

@mcxplode: Huh, hadn't noticed that. Fixed. :)

New build includes libcurl in Steam Runtime.
Might want to check what other static libs are included too as to not include libs and dependencies that are not needed.
