Careful: I tested this with UT99, and while a lot of the game works, some parts aren't exactly great (e.g. crash on Alt+Tab and mouse look is bounded by the mouse reaching the screen border; didn't try a lot of gaming due to that). You're probably better off with the full sdl 1.2!

I've added a few comments to the non-lib32.

But as those come from the same source, in the same commit, the correct approach would be to use one single PKGBUILD with "pkgbase" producing two pkgnames. It's easier than it looks. After that, you should request a merge in the non-lib32.

@shoober420: Thanks for the hint! I've updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

@dreieck (in non-lib32 variant): I've updated the PKGBUILD. Sorry for the late action, it seems the notification got lost somewhere or I just forgot about it :(

I applied both changes to this package and the non-lib32 variant as well.

@archi42

Could you please update the source link to “git+ https://github.com/libsdl-org/sdl12-compat

Thank you for this package. This is a really cool alternative when a program you like hasn’t updated to sdl2 yet. Freesynd and uhexen2 come to mind.

I highly recommend the UT469 patch to play UT.
