The Savage2 installer files are missing from the official s2games.com server.

You'll need to manually download the appropriate .run file from one of the "Off Site HTTP Downloads" mirrors manually before attempting to build this package:

@noogar: The only working mirror is ModDB. You cannot link directly to the downloads as far as I know, you have to go through their website to obtain a download token.

@Slash, you can do this automatically in PKGBUILD...

There are a few sites with 2.1.0.8, but you will need to download manually:

* http://www.atomicgamer.com/files/100476/savage-2-client-v2-1-0-8-linux-64-free-to-play

* http://www.moddb.com/games/savage-2-a-tortured-soul/downloads/savage-2-a-tortured-soul-v2108-linux-64-bit

http://www.playsavage2.com/ is supposed to be an active community site, but it lists 2.1.0.1 as the version you should download.

Finally, http://na1.cedeqien.com/ provides an unofficial 2.1.1.0 patch/expansion. I am not involved with the Savage 2 community at all, so I'm not sure what is considered the de-facto version of Savage 2 (or maybe there isn't one because the game is dead?).

Strange, 2.1.0.8 appears to have disappeared off their servers and only 2.1.0.7 is available. Does anyone know what's going on?

This game also requires glu as a dependency.

savage 2.1.0.8 is out

Slash commented on 2012-08-22 22:41

I updated the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in savage2.sh. savage2.sh used to be part of the installer files, but it appears to be missing from 2.1.0.7. I didn't have time to delve to deeply into it, so I copied the format of "modelviewer.sh" and "dedicated_server.sh".
