Not everyone uses or prefers openjdk, so this package depends on java-environment=17 instead.

jdk21 deprecates some jdk7 stuff which is required to make some older versions of minecraft to work, which is why prismlauncher currently requires jdk17.

While this promotes user choice, it also requires that users' systems have their default java environment set to any jdk17 via archlinux-java set $jdk_ver. Use archlinux-java status to see which java environments are installed, and change accordingly. Alternatively, just set the JAVA_HOME env var when installing like this:

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-17-whicheverjdk yay prismlauncher

@useless2764 PrismLauncher doesn't have a very strict requirement for the gamemode version, neither here in the packaging, nor in the upstream code.

If you mean gamemode-git from the AUR, ask the package maintainer to insert provides=(gamemode) to the PKGBUILD, or better yet - pin the provides=(libgamemode.so libgamemodeauto.so) to the library files like in gamemode.

can we change this to check for any gamemode version as opposed to just the stable version

You can fix the submodule libnbtplusplus by changing git submodule update to git submodule--helper update, same goes for prismlauncher-git package.
