Careful: I tested the lib32 variant of 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!

Thanks, somehow forgot it for the non-lib32 package.

Seems like a dependency is missing. From lib32-sdl2_compat12-git: mercurial (mercurial-hg, mercurial-stable-hg, python-mercurial, mercurial-python3) (make)
