Use 'play-emu' to launch. It has to be stressed that this emulator, much like RPCS3/Xenia is very much experimental at this point. Do not post complaints about running games.

First this shouldn't install Play-Ui, but Play/build/Source/ui_unix/Play. Play-Ui still links to many boost libraries (play-emu is trying to remove as many boost deps as it can) and isn't really the binary you want to use (it's just not working as well and yes they are different and Play-Ui has bugs)

Secondly your version pulls the Play-Builds, but only does a "git submodule update"!

So the code we are ALWAYS pulling is from 2016 and yes it is "from git", but you could as well download the 2016 tarballs at this stage. So yeah it is version-locked. Here is a PKGBUILDs that solves that problem https://gist.github.com/BlackLotus/13d002488fbaf4ff0c654c26d673f8a2 please be so kind and adopt the fixes out of this PKGBUILD. Since there are 2 build systems I will create a git package that uses a differnet build system. I know this isn't good form and I will later delete it again, but I would really like an up to date version of this package.

So tldr; I have troubles/issues with it and your git package is version locked.

Kind regards,

ts

Please do not flag this as out of date unless you have trouble / issues. It is a git package, not version-locked..
