You should replace make by cmake --build . to be generator agnostic.

I tried my hand at it, this works (basically combining your PKGBUILD and the one from the -git package):



(the latter including the note as written on

The user is bound by the license regardless of what is printed to the terminal, so I don't see that an .install adds anything. Putting the conditions as given by Terry in a LICENSE-data file as you've been doing seems fine to me. That is the info the author has provided on what you're allowed to do, so that's what we've got to work with. If it's not sufficient then printing it to the terminal as well I don't think adds anything!

The icon in looks good. Huh. makeandplay's is the same as the one in the -bin. That means we don't actually need the -bin. I had assumed it was a cut-down version. That means this can become more similar to vvvvvv-git. I'll try and rework it this weekend; I'd do it now, but I really want to avoid a .install so I need to dig in a bit more.

Ah I see. I didn't clean-build since using vvvvvv-10202016-bin myself, so it worked after removing it from the sources array, and I mistakenly thought it wasn't needed! contains an icon VVVVVV.png you might use, it's not the same as what you're using now but it's what vvvvvv-git uses for its icon.

vvvvvv-10202016-bin is necessary for the game assets (

And if it were, then it would be out of date as the latest download from hib is

Oh, good, they updated it with a new build and it is now a simple zip. I hadn't seen that. Although the icon is gone., which is the main thing we care about is bit-identical. So... for all of us who have had the game for a while vvvvvv-10202016-bin is superior, but that doesn't help people trying to build today. I'll see if I can find an alternative source for the icon.

If this is now building from source, should hib://vvvvvv-10202016-bin be removed from the sources array? It does not appear to be necessary.

And if it were, then it would be out of date as the latest download from hib is

This package should have been named vvvvvv-bin from the beginning.

I've fixed the DLAGENTS docs. makepkg became more restrictive in how it uses DLAGENTS.

vvvvvv-git follows the OSS git repository. It seems appropriate to continue using the binaries here for the while. If a binary release has corresponding source then we could consider building from source here. But it doesn't seem like it will work that way.

Now open source!

When a package is updated with a new stable release, please mark out-of-date instead of adding a comment.
