All you need to get 5.0.3 working is to change the commit in the PKGBUILD to d462ca38724db65d7f92f3edbd16b6657291e420

Also the patch file is no longer required for compilation so that should be removed as well.

The GitHub link I posted earlier has an updated PKGBUILD now for anyone who's impatient.

Can you please update this for FM 5.0.3?

Also I want to add, here is the upstream pull request from dolphin that I used to create my patch file:

@thejacer87 Until this is fixed here, you can try using my PKGBUILD instead as I have just updated mine:

@pyamsoft Here is what is needed to fix this compiler error:

Thanks, these worked great for me.

Also I may be wrong but I think your GALE01.ini should actually be this

$Faster Melee Netplay Settings
$60FPS + 4X VRH
HalfAudioRate = False
VideoRate = 4

Those are the settings I've been running with in order to successfully play Netplay

Edit: I see you used to have it like this and changed it to add Widescreen. I'm not sure if the widescreen setting works or not, haven't tried it myself

I was having some issues/uncertainties with the Gecko codes installation. I did some research and think I figured out what's going on.

I believe you have a small error in your `faster-melee.install`. You wrote:

Make sure you install the GALE01.ini config file into:

However, I think this is actually what it should say:

Make sure you install the GALE01.ini config file into:

Please refer to this section of the README straight from dolphin-emu (upstream)

Also, as an alternative to copying the config files (GALE01.ini, etc.) over to that directory, I'd like to point out that users can perform the following actions in the GUI to achieve the same thing:

Right click Melee ISO -> properties -> Gecko Codes. Check "Faster Melee Netplay Settings" and "60FPS + 4X VRH", and unselect everything else.

Right click on Melee ISO -> properties -> GameConfig. Uncheck "Half Audio Rate". Click "Video Rate Hack" so it says "4x".

Either way, it would be nice if this part didn't have to be done manually but I'm not quite sure how to do that atm.
