This version does not allow mod switching within the UI. Only the appimage supports this ATM.

Vkquake.pak is no longer needed. vkquake.pak is embedded in the executable.

You can remove the creation and install of vkquake.pak

I think zopfli can then be removed as a makedepends.

I compiled it without vkquake.pak and zopfli and it ran fine.

@hatred, I can compile vkquake just fine the way it is with the current link

Complete link should be:${pkgver}.tar.gz

link without "refs/tags" return 404.

With the latest update the default basedir appears to have been changed from the default ~/.vkquake to whatever the current working directory is, so until it's fixed I have to launch it with vkquake -basedir ~/.vkquake for it to work again.

From the 1.22 changelog: vkquake.pak is embedded into the executable, external file no longer used.

When I update to 1.22.1, the game won't start.

QUAKE ERROR: W_LoadWadFile: couldn't load gfx.wad

Basedir is: /home/carp

Still happens with 1.22.3, If I open a terminal in the /home/carp/.vkquake directory and type vkquake it starts normally. Any idea why this is happening?

glslang spirv-tools need to be added as a dependencies, doesn't build without them.

Also dependencies are wrong for meson build, please consult project's readme.
