Ok, turned out there was no buildertmp/app/ under ~/.local/share/vcmi/buildertmp/app. Not sure why that hadn’t been created. After creating the missing folders, the builder worked up to a point, but created another app/ directory under buildertmp/app/. Copying the former’s content into the latter one finally made the builder work. Really strange.

If you have innoextract and unzip installed, then maybe try to run script with bash -x /usr/bin/vcmibuilder --gog "setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe", and share output on pastebin, or similar service.

I’m using the command like this in the installer’s directory: vcmibuilder --gog "setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe" Using an absolute path gives the same result.

@nipsky Could you please paste command you are issuing? Vcmibuilder script hasn't been changed in four months, and it worked for me in past for both CD, and GOG versions.

Hi, not matter what I point vcmibuilder to, I’m getting:

/usr/bin/vcmibuilder: line 185: cd: /home/user/.local/share/vcmi/buildertmp/app: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat '/home/user/.local/share/vcmi/buildertmp/app/[Dd][Aa][Tt][Aa]': No such file or directory

I tried this with two different GOG installers and an installed GOG version.

@gee Thank you, silly mistake. Fixed. I mainly wanted to make binaries to work without tuning LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and later I thought it would be good to build off-tree as well. I didn't spot the error simply because I had unclean src/ dir from previous build.

I think you're missing a "cd build" in the package section. ;)

Thank you!

Please add aarch64to list of architectures (it compiles and runs just fine).

Other than that, why is in /usr/lib/vcmi, which makes binaries inconvenient to be run via commandline?

CMake crashes out of the generation of build files for vcmi-git (and oddly enough, also the vcmi AUR package) with the following message:

"CMake Error in lib/CMakeLists.txt: Imported target "Boost::date_time" includes non-existent path

Does not compile with recent boost (>1.70), upstream MR present but not yet merged.

Use source=("$pkgname::git+<>") as a workaround until upstream is fixed.
