Currently building 4.23 if it builds successfully I'll update the package.

html5-build.patch was removed as it no longer applies. If anyone needs an html5 build submit a patch. Ideally, one that will be accepted by upstream as well.

@zerophase sequence of operations defined in this package ran perfectly. I had an issue with the sound with my previous compilation. But with your package I have no issue whatsoever. I greatly appreciate for your time an effort invested.

@eyupgurel I have a patch working for fixing shadowing issues with clang 8. That should significantly speed up compilation times. I can have that out in a couple of hours. Looks like Epic is backlogging and might not get to my patch in awhile. If anyone see any potential issues with the patch please let me know.

I have installed dependencies listed here. git cloned and compiled UE4 4.22.3 version from Unreal Engine account. No issues so far I can develop, build and compile my games without any issue so far.

@diogobaeder bin packages doesn't require compiling ;)

but it has a reason for that

like what? I always curious, and my only thought - is just because of poor, not optimized, code base, they pay money, and some folks do their job, meanwhile Godot have to make all nice and dandy =)

As for me I chose Unreal for the tech and AAA picture, but Godot working on that, and we will get it eventually. We already have better physics engine, so yeah, FLOSS win ;)

btw with GDNative you can write plugins and low level stuff with almost any language, Nim for example great Python like alternative of ugliest ++

Any progress on fixing 4.22 for clang 8? Just curious about development and potentially time estimation, if any. Any kind of help you could use?

@ruestique most packages (if not all) in the AUR have to be compiled, Unreal Engine is no different from that, however I get your point, it's huge, but it has a reason for that.

If I had to keep using Windows just for Unreal I would probably opt by sticking to Godot - which is pretty neat, by the way! The only reasons I'm learning/using Unreal are, it's easier to import models from proprietary 3D software, I can achieve more polished results with it and I have a motivation to learn C++ again (which I stopped learning many years ago when I migrated to other languages). In terms of ease of use and learning curve, and of giving user pleasure, though, Godot is much better.

@diogobaeder double meh.... it's still looks unnatural now for me, like going against the flow of the river, 25Gb and 8 hours(downloading from github is very slow) of compile time — just don't worse it

let epic making movies with INDUSTRIAL STANDARD environment..

@ruestique I've been using the 4.22 version of the editor downloaded from GitHub, it works fine. Although for the Epic Launcher (to download assets etc) I had to install via Lutris, so Wine to the rescue!

+1 ^_^


meh.. I've give up, just installed win10 in dualboot at the same ssd right now, on Linux I have Godot, and it's awesome! small, fast, works like a charm with Blender!!
