it should be available again now, though I'll be unable to properly test it myself until late this weekend. Hope this still helps!

All the best,

fife-git isn't in the AUR :(. Chris, help?

New release!

[pkgrel 1] - new release, require fife-git (see below) plus fix for color overlays w/atlases

The issue appears to have been introduced with the upgrade to SWIG 3. I personally had not upgraded due to similar issues with SWIG updates in the past and thus been unable to reproduce.
Indeed fife-git has fixed the problem and should work with unknown-horizons-git as you mentioned. I am not sure if the combination (unknown-horizons / fife-git) also works.
If fife-git plays nicely, I'd prefer requiring that over more patching for 0.3.5 myself. If it does not, I could wait for a new FIFE release, which is unlikely to happen soon, or apply your workaround to the package untested.

Temporary workaround for the issue below:

Comment out (Add a # at the start) the following lines in


More technically it appears there is some issue in swig passing a bool through an *args array.

unknown-horizons-git (dependent on fife-git) is unaffected.

I have downloaded the package and installed, but I got this error message!

(Sorry again about this prolonged period of silence.)

Were any of you using `fife-svn` or `fife-git` packages to provide fife? (If you're still using the now-deleted `fife-svn`, make sure to upgrade to `fife` sometime.) For now I've added

[pkgrel 6] - an ugly hack to require non-git fife

but still can't reproduce these issues on my system. If nothing else helps, perhaps try `unknown-horizons-git` and `fife` packages.

Same here

skiwi commented on 2014-05-17 14:04

I get the same error as tacloban.

tacloban commented on 2014-04-24 05:49

maybe I have a font issue?
