    That change puts the configuration file in " /usr/share/ " which makes
    it harder to change mid game. Editing that config file is the only way
    to alter configs. While it is possible to copy that file to home
    directory and always use a command line argument that chooses that file
    instead of the default, it is difficult to do for end users.

    Users may want to change arena maps too, without sudo.

    What solution could there be for this?

    Also, that service file, so much needless text, why can't they have
    normal config file format ( like for example PPFCU uses ). Also lot of
    that information could be just guessed and only if guess is wrong or
    unpreferred, user needs to provide other answer. Compression is easiest
    to guess.

    I tried to build, assuming it would be wrong, hoping that error messages
    could bring closer to a solution, but nothing, not even error messages.

    Why these files just appeared from somewhere?:

    '_service:set_versionpfcu.spec' (

    '_service:tar_scm:_servicedata' (

    The _service files are because it's pulling from git and uses those
    files for the actual build. A wrapper script to create a configuration
    directory in the user directory is needed by the looks. I can copy over
    and use, also check the existence of the directory etc. Can look at
    this next week and come up with something.

    On other thought, maybe we could have an option to install some software completely on user directory even from a OpenSuse repository? Installing on /usr saves space if there is more than one user per machine, but that kind of situation is getting more and more rare. Software which is almost meant to be altered, like PPFCU, is best for such /home directory installation. Any drawing program like GIMP can be used to make and alter game arenas for PPFCU. Players may want to alter small graphics too.
