Just added the fix suggested by user f5bb39 and the package installs v1.4.0

f5bb39 Thank you for you input, sorry it took me a long time to respond, I took a small vacation for the end of the year.

The PKGBUID is setup so it compiles the latest state of the Master branch since the dev does not do a package release and often misses to setup a release tag.

Weirdly enough - 1.4 just came out a few hours ago. Installing this package gave me 1.4. This isn't the dev package though?

adding options=("!buildflags") to the pkg build fixes it

The latest build keeps failing to build, for me, with these messages:

display/source/CursesDisplay.cpp: In member function ‘virtual void CursesDisplay::add_message(const string&, Colour, bool)’: display/source/CursesDisplay.cpp:445:12: error: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Werror=format-security]

Version 1.2.0 is fixed and building. Thanks for the flag and the votes, this game seems to be gaining popularity.

Thank you for pointing out this important omission on the script.

A new PKGBUILD has been uploaded to fix this problem.

15:12 ~❱ sotw
Failed to execute process '/usr/bin/sotw'. Reason:
exec: Exec format error
The file '/usr/bin/sotw' is marked as an executable but could not be run by the operating system.

This was the error i got, i fixed it by putting #!/bin/sh as first line in /usr/bin/sotw.

Hello PedroHLC,

The PKGBUILD is written to look for lua51 on /usr/include/lua5.1 if your lua51 implementation lives on a different path you can modify line 28 to the correct path in the --lua_include argument:

"premake4 --lua_include=</path/to/lua5.1> --lua_link=lua5.1 gmake"

I hope this solves your problem but in case it doesn't please don't hesitate to contact me and letting me know.
