CMake crashes out of the generation of build files for vcmi-git (and oddly enough, also the vcmi AUR package) with the following message:

"CMake Error in lib/CMakeLists.txt: Imported target "Boost::date_time" includes non-existent path

Does not compile with recent boost (>1.70), upstream MR present but not yet merged.

Use source=("$pkgname::git+<>") as a workaround until upstream is fixed.

There is a missing '.' in cmake invocation.

@niezniszczalny I had issues with Random Map Creation as well, solution was to download 'VCMI essential files mods' from

Download the zip and unzip it into ~/.local/share/vcmi/Mods. Random maps seem to be working fine now.

Unsure where the upstream for this zip is, would be neat to have it as an AUR package or pulled into this package.

Anyone has an issue with creating random maps?

I tried this solution, to copy Mod from latest Windows release, but it didnt' work for me.

@zer0def a patch for that has been merged.

As of boost-1.66.0, the package fails to build -

Thanks for the fix suggestion.
I went ahead and created instead.
I'd rather avoid using submodules. Since vcmi is going towards a more modular approach, the package should follow suite. That way fuzzylite can be used by other packages and updated separately.

Updated PKGBUILD with git submodule

I did follow the wiki guidlines for this:

_NOTE_: I get

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is fixed by: "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/vcmi vcmilauncher"
I haven't really dug into this but I suspect this is for upstream to fix.

They recently added submodules in a commit [1]. Add the following in PKGBUILD right before the `cmake` command on line 30:

git submodule update --init --recursive

This could be solved by adding the flag `--recurse-submodules` to the `git clone`, however I am not sure how to configure that in the PKGBUILD.
