The Savage2 installer files are missing from the official 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:

@Heretik: Try building and installing the PKGBUILD without yaourt.

@branec: This issue should be fixed now, but you may get the same error as Heretik if you use yaourt to install. "PKGEXT='.pkg.tar'" disables compression on the built package, and it looks like yaourt does not like that.

Does anyone have a direct link to the linux installers?

Yes - imchairmanm is right - sorry that I forgot to inform you guys here. We can now take care of many problems ourselves and the update loop problem has been fixed. So everyone installing Savage2 should just install it and not alter the files as suggested - everything is fine now and new installers are incoming very soon.

I don't understand. The community just recently got access to the patch server, so the automatic updates actually are working. For the first time in years. You might have to adjust permissions of the game directory, but the updates certainly work.

I updated the install script to tell the user to disable automatic updates since they do not work.
