iortcw works out of the box - the problem is it depends on wolf-data, which as a broken ftp url for the run file. And in ciclic beauty, the one from this package works!

I am experiencing the following error: 'Received signal 11, exiting...'.
So I tried to patch the executable by replacing '%s' with two spaces (20 20) as mentionned here: http://www.lgdb.org/game/return_castle_wolfenstein (thanks to krzxor for the link).

Unfortunately, it does not work: I still encounter the same error.

I am using the open source radeon driver.

It should be possible to patch the binary as part of the build process, I'll look into it soon.

Thank you, it seems to work now.

Note: I had to patch the executable as described here: http://www.lgdb.org/game/return_castle_wolfenstein
(Could this be added to the PKGBUILD as a post-install patch? I'm not an expert on the subject.)

Also, to make the sound work, I had to do:

# modprobe snd_seq_oss
# modprobe snd_mixer_oss
# modprobe snd_pcm_oss
# echo "wolfsp.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

Furthurmore, fire breathing enemies may hang the game (as noted at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=117684 and lots of other forums), so make sure to quicksave often. There are some potential solutions mentioned in that thread too.

I uploaded a new PKGBUILD with some modernizations.

* mirror: The mirror is working for me. Maybe it was down temporarily? I can browse the entire directory here: ftp://ftp.internat.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/distfiles/

* x86_64: I was able to start a multiplayer dedicated server and connect to it on 64bit. I needed to use software emulation because I was testing over SSH ( $ wolfmp +set r_allowSoftwareGL 1 +connect 127.0.0.1 ), so there might be an issue with OpenGL or sound, you'll need to be more specific with what type of errors you are getting. That being said, it is possible the client will never completely work correctly on a modern system and it may only be useful for dedicated servers.

Flagged out-of-date for a couple of reasons:
- does not work on x86_64 (although PKGBUILD/arch allows it)
- mirror no longer available
- PKGBUILD uses build() instead of package()

@Majki-Fajki: try to patch according to the procedure I detail here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=137208

^1Error: file ui/pregame.menu, line 1: file ui/menddef.h not found

Classic bug - anyone has some ideas?

zebulon commented on 2012-05-23 06:24

@OK100: well you'll have to apply the patch anyway. I explain the whole procedure here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=137208 and still plan to provide a PKGFILE when I find a little time.

I have the same issue as @santodelaespada, but I'm on 32bit arch
