libtiff3 was removed from AUR, so now including the .so in this package. You'll want to uninstall libtiff3/4 gotten from the AUR, installing libtiff4 from community if you need the dependency.

libtiff3 is required. libtiff4 could work with a hack, but libtiff3 is what this package really needs. I don't see any way that libtiff could be the dependency.

Pls update:

-depends=('mesa' 'libjpeg6' 'sdl_mixer' 'libtiff3' 'freetype2')
+depends=('mesa' 'libjpeg6-turbo' 'sdl_mixer' 'libtiff' 'freetype2')

Hi! libjpeg6 is not maintained any more. Please change dependencies to use libjpeg6-turbo instead.

@flamusdiu: Revision 7 should work better for you. I need to fix/remove some of the dependencies, but it should be better than it was.

@flamusdiu: Did you get an error concerning It looks like mikmod got upgraded to version 3, and thus the dependency is missing. I'll have to update things.

Strange, to get this to work, I had to copy the libs from ${srcdir}/uplink-x64/lib64 to /usr/lib/

It seems the package may not have been made properly.

Really hate to do this...but I'm orphaning this package because I have it installed through Desura/Steam. Whoever picks it up, feel free to contact me if you need some maintenance help.

Added check in $srcdir for existing source download so it won't try to overwrite. Mostly for people that keep the same build directories.

regarding your issues, try executing uplink from a terminal with something to the effect of this to put it in a windowed mode:

uplink -graphics_fullscreen '!graphics_screenwidth' 1024 '!graphics_screenheight' 768

and set the width and height to whatever you want it to be to fit on your screen right. can try this:

uplink +graphics_safemode

Great to see this. Anyway, built fine on my laptop, although the game is not playing as it should~ the right side of the screen is not responsive (you can see everything, you just can't click it), which is rather annoying when it comes to actually playing (and then quitting after realising I can't play). Also, the backgrounds are not showing. It is just a static black background behind all the writing, buttons and windows.

Anyway, have you, or anyone using this package, experienced this problem?
