> Why does this use bittorrent instead of extracting the assets from the zip?

Because with torrent, whenever you update the game you will only download the game data that has changed since the last version. You're also not speed-limited by the content provider as many people were when we hosted the data on sourceforge.

The errors mean that some of our web seeds don't have the latest files. Web seeds are regular web servers that speed up the initial distribution of data in the torrent network and allow people behind restrictive firewalls to also download Unvanquished "via torrent". They're uncritical warnings, I'll notify kangz though.

I'm getting a lot of errors similar to this:

Exception: [AbstractCommand.cc:350] errorCode=3 URI=http://webseed.unv.kangz.net/unv-launcher/unvanquished_0.43.0/pkg/map-station15_1.0.pk3
-> [HttpSkipResponseCommand.cc:215] errorCode=3 Resource not found

Hello, Viech!
To be precise, I am not complaining about the two-day delay (you need)
but I am definitely complaining about the incompatiblities
which demand an update immediately with the servers when you don't
want the game crashing randomly and repeatedly.
Just changing the git tag (as well as manually downloading) didn't work for
the reason I gave below.

I'm sorry for the two-day delay. (Usually it's a one-day delay due to time zone differences.) If you want the new version immediately, you can always download a binary package from unvanquished.net. I asked `Ishq to also update the torrent distribution immediately when he packages the new release, which would allow your local update of the unvanquished-data package to succeed. For the unvanquished package you would need to change the git tag from something like "archlinux/0.43.0-1" to "v0.43.0", which should work most of the time.

WHY is the game unplayable/crashing on EVERY version change/upgrade?!

AUR is not updated yet. Game servers are.
You try to play and it just does funny things or simply crashes because the
servers are ahead one version of the client. I've tried to fix the AUR package
and fail as usual as the download ressources are not in place yet.
So after wasting time again, you have to wait until the repositores
and download-servers are updated anytime when?... how annoying. :-(

Imopssible to install the same program by modifying the PKGBUILD :

There is now a workaround in the PKGBUILD to download the torrent via http instead of https. I will remove it once the bug in aria2/GnuTLS is fixed.

Viech commented on 2015-05-15 15:01

It looks like it acould be an aria2/GnuTLS bug. I'll report this the next days. As mentioned earlier, for now you can add "sed -i 's,https,http,' download-pk3-torrent.sh" right before the call to "download-pk3-torrent.sh" in the PKGBUILD as a workaround. (Another workaround would be disabling the certificate check when calling aria2c inside that script.)

Viech commented on 2015-05-12 18:56

I could already translate the relevant part of the original log which is "The signature algorithm is not supported.". By now I can reproduce the issue with latest aria2c but I'm not yet sure how to fix it or what exactly the problem is. Feel free to use the workaround in my last post until I figure it out.
