I assume it was deleted because Alien Arena is available on steam, whoever maintained it probably thought he wasn't allowed to distribute the contents of the svn. COR Entertainment have stated that the svn version will remain free to distribute. There is some content available on steam that isn't in the svn repo.

This PKGBUILD has a couple of problems, Alien Arena doesn't depend on sdl and a couple of quotes are missing in the dependency line.

What happened to the alienarena-data package?

alienarena-cc commented on 2018-08-22 10:52

I'm pretty certain that Alien Arena isn't dependent on sdl

Forgot to answer your question, no the repo code is not deprecated.

I think the name of the package (alienarena-svn r4297-2) mislead me. I just read the reasons for it being flagged out of date, there is no alienarena-data package, which obviously means this package won't build. Plus the sdl/libgl dependency issues.

This PKGbuild is using SVN. So it always builds based on the latest code. Do you mean upstream repo has deprecated code?

The alienarena version here is is deprecated, there are very few servers for it and it's unsupported by COR Entertainment. Alien Arena is now available on steam for purchase along with it's DLC. The good news is that COR Entertainment are leaving the source code and game assets in their svn repository at for free distribution in linux distributions. This excludes content that is specific to the steam client.

We refer to the version you currently have packaged as Generation 2, because nearly every game asset has been updated, including maps, player characters, weapons, particle fx etc. We refer to the game now as Generation 3. There are also a lot of new features. Writing a changelog for the game would be a mammoth task in itself.

--with-zlib has been removed from configure. please update pkgconfig.

don't worry, I'm here to save you jajaja, now serious, package updated, there where many errors on PKGBUILD, and could be there are someones yet (it's too late here in Spain and I'm starting to think about sleeping), but not-important possible errors a part, it works, and you can try this awesome game.

You need to run configure before the Makefile is generated...
