Hello. I'm having the following error when trying to install the game.

==> Validating source files with sha256sums...  
gog-hollow-knight ... Passed  
gog-hollow-knight.desktop ... Passed ... Passed  
==> Removing existing $srcdir/ directory...

Error making: gog-hollow-knight```

From what I can see, this line in the PKGBUILD seems to be the problem: cp -r data/noarch/game "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}/"

However, this line is also in other GOG game packages by the mantainer, but I see no one else complaining so maybe it's just me?

Also, regarding the lgogdownloader comment at the beginning of the PKGBUILD, do I just set gog::/usr/bin/lgogdownloader --download --game %o %u at the beginning of makepkg.conf?

I'd appreciate the help.

I should have some time later this week to touch all of my gog-$game PKGBUILDs.

consider changing the file uri to one using gogdownloader?

lgogdownloader seems popular.
