@anthraxx: I get it, but that tharball include generally text files.. So it very time consuming for extracting and reincluding those file in to PKGBUILD. If you make and send ( :D ), I'd apriciate ...

  • don't use binary blobs uploaded to the AUR like a .tar.bz2 tarball this is not a CDN

It seems that the upstream URL is gone, and the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” are missing.

There is also an error in the PKGBUILD: the permissions for the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” should be 666 (they are used by Crafty for learning) – and they should be listed within the “backup” array of the PKGBUILD.

Therefore I made a new PKGBUILD trying to fix everything. But since the files “book.bin” and “books.bin” are missing I preserved them inside the tarball. For downloading it, please see:

For the PKGBUILD only, please see:

Also the "Upstream URL" should be changed in this case.

There's a 24.1 version as of November. Install works perfectly by simply changing pkgver and the md5sum.
