@flying-sheep: Using the hib::// DLAGENT simplifies the PKGBUILD and fetching of the source file, here[1] is a patch implementing it.

@smls

Right, the force_s3tc_enable worked for me too. Game works perfectly without txc_dxtn.

ah, ok. i didn’t know it doesn’t affect users of proprietary drivers, so i ignored it and thought it would just be a tip for people with mesa drivers.

i’ve put it in now, thanks for the info.

@flying-sheep:
A user at the forums (see link in preceding comment) has confirmed that setting force_s3tc_enable=true fixes the game on systems using a MESA-based (open-source) graphics driver. Seeing as setting the variable will have no adverse effects on other systems (it will simply do nothing), you should set it directly in the shank.sh launch script shipped with the PKGBUILD:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/shank2/lib/
export force_s3tc_enable=true
cd /opt/shank2/bin/
exec ./shank2 "$@"

This should make the game work with all drivers.

@Ambrevar: It might be enough to run the game with the force_s3tc_enable environment variable set to true, without actually installing libtxc_dxtn. Can you confirm this? See also the discussion on the forum: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1216738#p1216738

done. it makes more sense, too, as it has binaries and libs, which do not really fit into /usr/share

Can you install this into /opt? I think it's common for such large software packages to go into /opt (and I have just a small / partition, but extra space for /opt ;)

Ambrevar commented on 2013-01-11 22:03

I needed libtxc_dxtn for this one, using free radeon driver. This is the S3TC library (patented technology as far as I know, status may change in the future).

flying-sheep commented on 2013-01-05 22:06

ok, thanks. i don’t need to maintain that package, i just corrected a few things, made it use _get_local_source, and before i knew it, it was a wholly different thing :D


too bad that somehow pacman thinks "b10" is a newer version than "update2"

@flying-sheep

flying-sheep commented on 2013-01-04 15:44

flying-sheep commented on 2013-01-01 22:23

it did and yes, it’s a problem if this doesn’t work if your page is claimed.

fzerorubigd commented on 2012-12-30 19:38

Its for humble bundle 7 version. so please do not flag this unless this humble binary version is changed.

fzerorubigd commented on 2012-12-27 10:16

If yo claim your page, this package can not download the game file.
