It is suggested you install retroarch-assets-xmb-git over retroarch-assets-xmb, as the community packages is currently missing assets.

@parkerlreed, for consistency. I've rethought this, and you are correct, this should not be done. I'll update the PKBUILD to not use this behavior.

Why are the paths being hardcoded? Just consistency for the packages? This breaks the online updater completely.

Moved small listing of suggested package cores to "foot note" after install to check the AUR (as there are dozens). See: retroarch-git.install

@Griever, I must have missed it, it will be added back today. Apologies.

Edit: should be back.Did a quick makepkg test. Let me know if you or others really want oss/jack back, as I mirrored the Arch Linux community package and figured that would be ok. Not a problem if otherwise.

Why did you disable Cg support? Most GLSL shaders have been broken for months.

Updated and modelled after the Arch Linux community package.

Just a heads up, commit 6c18c177036b271bb2519935c2be5a4b0b8fff47 broke RetroArch on processors with TSX support (certain Broadwell and newer processors, check cpuinfo for "hle" and "rtm"). You'll get a Segfault (lock elision if you backtrace it) in this scenario.

Reverting that specific commit allows RetroArch to work as normal on those processors. More information can be found here - https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/issues/3183

EDIT: Upstream have modified the piece of code that was triggering the SEGFAULT so that it no-longer happens. The rollback is no-longer required.

EDIT 2: This is now broken again upstream as of commit 6a9fb1186d8841a899b19b45a04508e027e12632 (which re-reverts the earlier fix).

Can you add the following lines before configure in the script...

git submodule init
git submodule update

This is needed for Vulkan support to actually work.

I've found out that "git describe --first-parent --tags" reports the correct version.
