The package is now purely based on the OldUnreal patch and the installation is massively simplified. Let me know if anything doesn't work. Happy fragging!

thx @travisghansen I integrated your changes into the package. I didn't change the games install path because mappacks depend on it being stable.

You can add me as a co-maintainer but this is what I've put together:

I just tried to install this with yay and all the maps ending up in my home dir as well. Not sure what the fix is but I can mess with it for a bit and see if I can get it to package correctly.

@alex.pyattaev thx for testing. No idea how this could get through my tests. It should work now. I fixed all the permissions and ownerships too. The bonuspacks are also happy now. unrealtournament-bonuspack1 is the only one which is still not able to install because it tries to overwrite /opt/ut/System/epiccustommodels.u and /opt/ut/System/relics.u.

alex.pyattaev commented on 2023-06-02 05:04 (UTC)

Hi! We've tried this package and found a couple of issues: 1. when installer is used via yay, it fails to find /Music however, when used via makepkg directly, it finds all the files, but unpacks them into the user's home instead of /opt/ut/ . Naturally, one needs to manually copy the maps etc into /opt/ut/Maps for stuff to work. 2. Certain files such as multimesh.u and de.u are not copied to /opt/ut, as a result game fails to host multiplayer sessions. Again, manually copying them solves the issue.

I'll try to revamp the whole package in the next few days. Based on the OldUnreal patches much of the stuff in the PKGBUILD is not needed anymore.

installed but not launch

xordspar0 commented on 2022-06-24 15:58 (UTC)

ossp isn't necessary with the OldUnreal patches. There's an OpenAL sound driver now.
