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.

I do have lua51 installed, but it fails with: make[1]: lua: Command not found

NOTE: Building from a clean chroot.

Thanks for the fix, @Larzid. Surprisingly fast fix, I appreciate that.

Thank you for reporting the error. The updated the PKGBUILD should fix the problem.

The game does take a considerable time to compile but you can speed thing up by editing the PKGBUILD on line 29 to: make -j LDFLAGS=-lpthread config=release

Be warned that passing the -j argument to the make command as indicated above might crash some fairly old computers like mine.

I can't install the game, after a long step of installation, this error happens:

/bin/ld: obj/Release/PauseAnimationInstruction.o: undefined reference to symbol 'pthread_condattr_setclock@@GLIBC_2.3.3'

/bin/ld: /usr/lib/ error in adding symbols: DSO missing from command line

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

make[1]: *** [ShadowOfTheWyrm.make:1129: ShadowOfTheWyrm] Error 1

make: *** [Makefile:17: ShadowOfTheWyrm] Error 2

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Tried to translate the best I could, my system's language is not in english
