Important information

The executable is copied to ~/.re3 and it expects the contents of the GTA III folder to be also there.

You need to copy them from eg. Steamapps into ~/.re3, otherwise it will not work.

re3 binary to /usr/share/games/re3/re3

Tell users to copy gamedata to /usr/share/games/re3 (Most source ports of games support this location)

Script at /usr/bin/re3 that cd's to that folder and runs ./re3

Seems like that would be a good workaround.

Oh damn haha thanks a lot!

No worries, I will try to come up with an updated PKGBUILD. In the meantime, I encourage you to check both package guidelines and the link I already mentioned on Arch Wiki.

Unfortunately this is my first AUR package and I don't really know how to fix it :(

It doesn't even install on my PC when using a helper despite it working locally. The developers are working on actual XDG integration but I can't really help since I'm just a designer, not a programmer.

If anyone can actually get this working properly I'm more than willing to relinquish maintainership (is that even a real word?) of this package.

Actually, it's a bad practice to have it copying into homedir in package(), not to mention if would fail if trying to build in chroot https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DeveloperWiki:Building_in_a_clean_chroot (which I have just encountered).

More probably we need a script to do all the necessary steps after the actual installation (i.e., not in PKGBUILD) and a post-install warning for user to run it once.
