We're about to merge, it will explicitly require openssl. This is already a dependency of curl (through libssh2), but would be good to include it here as well.

We've merged the .desktop file now:

We may install it with our cmake scripts in the future:

@janisozaur: I've changed it to match the description on the upstream GitHub repo (which is where I think I got the original pkgdesc from in the first place, but it looks like the description was changed at some point).

@grahamedgecombe perhaps you could change the description of package slightly.

I feel "Open source engine for RollerCoaster Tycoon 2" would be a better fit. I've also seen other such packages mention a blurb like "requires full copy of the game" in the oneliner, what's your view on that?

@grahamedgecombe Thanks for the info! I had to install lib32-libpulse.

grahamedgecombe commented on 2016-03-01 19:46

@DrDoctor: This is because lib32-curl hasn't been rebuilt against openssl 1.0.2f yet - nothing to do with this package. You'll either have to wait for the maintainer to rebuild it, or rebuild it yourself with ABS.

@phantom94: OpenRCT2 plays sound using SDL2, and thus depends on lib32-sdl2. lib32-sdl2 does not directly depend on the 32-bit ALSA/PulseAudio libraries - they are optional dependencies, and you need to pick and manually install the one appropriate for your system.

@papperwing: Are you able to give more details? Btw, there's now an "openrct2 set-rct2" command so you can simply run "openrct2 set-rct2 /path/to/rct2" to avoid having to edit the config file by hand.

When running the latest openrct2, there is no sound.

It outputs the following:

ALSA lib dlmisc.c:254:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib32/alsa-lib/

Is this a bug in packaging or upstream?
Any ideas how to fix it?

Hi, I have installed rct2 from iso made from original disc. I am not able to set instalation path to config.ini. Could you give me hint?

janisozaur commented on 2016-01-11 22:51

I have improved our messages in case of missing `config.ini` or `config.ini` having improper "game_path" set.

While doing that, I also realised a useful feature: when starting openrct2, we check current directory for RCT2 installation, so if you start openrct2 in such a directory, the proper config will get written for you automatically. This works with --user-data-path=xxx as well.

There will be another feature shortly, where you can specify your path using `openrct2 set-rct2 /path/to/rct2`, but check exact syntax once it's live. I will edit this post when it happens.

Edit: merged
