@thaewrapt, I see, you might be correct. The prebuilt package is not a good candidate for packaging for a couple of reasons. First of all, it is built using Lutris's runtime, and as such inherits the same issues as Proton, namely it is at its best when running inside that runtime. Also, although I might be wrong here, I haven't found any mention of Lutris being able to use a system-wide installation directory in the same way Steam can. For these reasons, I believe that packaging those binaries is pointless and they should be managed by Lutris itself.

How make this versoin of wine automatically create .desktop files?

You've been incredibly responsive with both communication and updating the package, so from my perspective you have nothing to apologize for! Using the AUR always involves some risk of things being broken due to not having the same volume of support that the main packages have, so I'll take a sometimes breaking but quickly updated package over one with an unreponsive maintainer any day :)

This is why we can't have nice things.

Ok, joking aside, I reverted everything back to normal and made wine-ge-custom-opt into its own thing. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused by these updates. In my defense, I had been sitting on these issues and solutions too long, unsure how to proceed because of lack of any feedback. Your feedback cleared a lot of things on how you are using this package and how it should be handled.

Oh good lord, I forgot to pass arguments.....

Sorry for the repeated comments; from manual testing, I was able to get my games launching fine with Lutris and the "system" wine version from wine-ge-custom 8.10-5 by modifying the last line of /usr/bin/wine to the following:

exec /opt/wine-ge-custom/bin/wine "$@"

Quoting $@ was required to deal with the spaces in the path to my installed wine programs (due to "Program Files" having a space in the Windows path), and I added exec since it's idiomatic for shell scripts to use that to replace the current process rather than spawning an additional one (and keeping the old one around as a parent process).
