=== Libraries needed ===
+
If you're using Visual Studio 2015 or later, [https://github.com/Microsoft/vcpkg vcpkg] is the simplest way to get the libraries compiled. It works similar to Linux package managers, but everything is locally compiled from source, so you always get binaries for the specific compiler and architecture you're using.
  
* [http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php SDL 1.2], file SDL-devel-1.2.XX-VC8.zip (where XX is the current release number)
+
After following their installation instructions, just run the following command from the vcpkg folder to build the libraries:
Latest stable version at the time of writing this: [http://www.libsdl.org/release/SDL-devel-1.2.14-VC8.zip 1.2.14]

+
vcpkg install curl faad2 fluidsynth freetype fribidi libflac libjpeg-turbo libmad libmpeg2 libogg libpng libtheora libvorbis sdl2 sdl2-net zlib discord-rpc
 +
</pre>
  
* [http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/ libogg] and [http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/ libvorbis] for OGG support.
+
Any missing libraries are optional and currently not available in vcpkg, so you will have to build them yourself if you want to enable them.
Note that the libraries included in the "vorbis" package won't work. You need libogg and libvorbis, not vorbis.
 
Latest stable versions at the time of writing this: [http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/libogg-1.3.0.zip 1.3.0] and [http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/libvorbis-1.3.2.zip 1.3.2].
 
  
* [ftp://ftp.mars.org/pub/mpeg/ libmad] for MP3 support.
+
By default this will create x86 DLLs. If you want a different target, you can add "--triplet <triplet>" to the command, for example:
Latest stable version at the time of writing this: [ftp://ftp.mars.org/pub/mpeg/libmad-0.15.2b.tar.gz 0.15.2b]
 
  
* [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13478&package_id=12677 libFLAC] for FLAC support.

+
* '''x86-windows-static-md:''' x86 static LIBs
  
* [http://libmpeg2.sourceforge.net/downloads.html libmpeg2] for MPEG-2 support - '''no longer needed'''.
+
Note not every library is compatible with every target, but they should all work as x86/x64 DLLs.

== Manually compiling the needed libraries for Visual Studio yourself ==
You need the latest zlib source code. If you wish to compile ScummVM 0.8.0 or earlier with zlib support, you'll also need [http://www.winimage.com/zLibDll/crtdll.zip crtdll.lib].

Building libraries for use with Visual Studio is a complicated process. Many libraries only feature out-dated project files or have incompatible configurations for their project files. On this page we give a general introduction of the settings we used for building the libraries with Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. Afterwards, we give a more detailed view on the process of building each individual library.
You need the latest libpng source code.
 
Latest stable version at the time of writing this: [ftp://ftp.simplesystems.org/pub/libpng/png/src/libpng-1.5.5.tar.gz 1.5.5]
 
  
== Building the libraries ==
+
We used the following settings when compiling the libraries:
 +
* Run-Time Library: We use the "Multi-Threaded DLL" run-time library. For Debug configurations we use the "Multi-Threaded Debug DLL" (option "/MDd"). For Release configurations we use the "Multi-Threaded DLL" (option "/MD").
 +
* Link-time Code Generation: We disable LTCG for all configurations (option "/LTCG:OFF").
 +
* Whole Program Optimization: We disable WPO for all configurations (option "/GL-").
 +
Please assure that any libraries you build use exactly the same configuration settings.
  
Now, we need to compile the required libraries.
+
== Special Instructions for Libraries ==
  
Note that you'll need to build all libraries with the same configuration settings (debug or release). If you don't need a specific library, you can remove it from your build by going to Project->Properties, Configuration Properties->C/C++->Preprocessor and remove the "USE_XXX" directive for that library from there. For example, to remove OGG support, remove the USE_VORBIS directive.
+
Here, we will take a look at libraries which need special handling when built with Visual Studio.
  
Also, make sure to disable the inclusion of default libraries in all libraries. You can do this from the project properties->Librarian->General and setting "Ignore all default libraries" to "Yes (/NODEFAULTLIB)" (special thanks to nolange for this tip). Finally, make sure that optimization is set to "Maximize speed" (or anything other than "Full optimization"), otherwise it will be impossible to build incremental debug builds later on (you'll get a warning saying "ignoring '/INCREMENTAL' due to '/LTCG' specification"). You can do this from the project properties->C/C++->Optimization, and set "Optimization" to "Maximize Speed (/O2)"

If you're building the libraries with VS2008/2005, you will get a lot of deprecation warnings. These are normal and nothing to worry about, they're just Microsoft's way of saying "This is a bad code practice. Use this instead". It's not easy to turn these off without several modifications to the code, so just ignore them.

You'll need the zlib source package. After unzipping it, go into the projects directory in the zlib source and open the solution under projects\visualc6. Right click on the "zlib" project, and go to its properties. Then, go to Configuration Properties->C/C++->Code Generation and change the Runtime library from "Multi-Threaded DLL (/MD)" to "Multi-Threaded (/MT)" (if you don't do this step, you'll have issues compiling ScummVM later on). Then, compile the "zlib" project using the LIB release configuration.

We used a custom project file when building zlib to get the old standard library name "zlib.lib". It can be found inside a zip file in the "patches/" directory of our pre-built library package. The project file was created for zlib 1.2.8.

To do this, go to Tools->Options->Projects and solutions->VC++ directories and include the include directory of libogg as well as the directory with the compiled ogg library. You'll need vorbis, vorbisfile and also vorbisenc for ScummVM tools.

Open the solution and compile project "libmpeg2". After you compile it, go to its include directory, create a folder "mpeg2dec" in there and copy all files from the include folder in this subfolder. You will end up with 2 directories, "include" and "include\mpeg2dec" with the same files. This is needed, as ScummVM includes files from the "mpeg2dec" directory

Open its solution and compile the libFLAC_static project.

Check the introductory section for more information. Also, FLAC OGGs are not needed, so support for these can be dropped by going to the libFLAC_static project settings and removing the FLAC__HAS_OGG switch from C/C++->Preprocessor->Preprocessor Definitions.

Using vcpkg package manager

If you're using Visual Studio 2015 or later, vcpkg is the simplest way to get the libraries compiled. It works similar to Linux package managers, but everything is locally compiled from source, so you always get binaries for the specific compiler and architecture you're using.

After following their installation instructions, just run the following command from the vcpkg folder to build the libraries:

vcpkg install curl faad2 fluidsynth freetype fribidi libflac libjpeg-turbo libmad libmpeg2 libogg libpng libtheora libvorbis sdl2 sdl2-net zlib discord-rpc

Any missing libraries are optional and currently not available in vcpkg, so you will have to build them yourself if you want to enable them.

By default this will create x86 DLLs. If you want a different target, you can add "--triplet <triplet>" to the command, for example:

  • x64-windows: x64 DLLs
  • x86-windows-static-md: x86 static LIBs

Note not every library is compatible with every target, but they should all work as x86/x64 DLLs.

Manually compiling the needed libraries for Visual Studio yourself

Building libraries for use with Visual Studio is a complicated process. Many libraries only feature out-dated project files or have incompatible configurations for their project files. On this page we give a general introduction of the settings we used for building the libraries with Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. Afterwards, we give a more detailed view on the process of building each individual library.

We used the following settings when compiling the libraries:

  • Run-Time Library: We use the "Multi-Threaded DLL" run-time library. For Debug configurations we use the "Multi-Threaded Debug DLL" (option "/MDd"). For Release configurations we use the "Multi-Threaded DLL" (option "/MD").
  • Link-time Code Generation: We disable LTCG for all configurations (option "/LTCG:OFF").
  • Whole Program Optimization: We disable WPO for all configurations (option "/GL-").

Please assure that any libraries you build use exactly the same configuration settings.

Special Instructions for Libraries

Here, we will take a look at libraries which need special handling when built with Visual Studio.

SDL 1.2

After adding a new x64 configuration option in the project files, you may also need to remove "/MACHINE:I386" as additional linker command in Project->Properties, Configuration Properties->Linker->Command Line.

zlib

We used a custom project file when building zlib to get the old standard library name "zlib.lib". It can be found inside a zip file in the "patches/" directory of our pre-built library package. The project file was created for zlib 1.2.8.

libogg

We use the "libogg_static" solution to create a library for static linking.

libvorbis

You will need to use the "vorbis_static" solution. It should feature working x86 (Win32) and x64 (x64) targets by default.

Note: You need to assure that the headers (and libraries in case you build a dynamically linked libvorbis) of libogg are in the paths MSVC searches.

Note: The static solution can be bugged and produce a library named "libvorbisfile.lib" instead of "libvorbisfile_static.lib". You will need to fix the target name in the project settings.

Note: You'll need vorbis, vorbisfile and also vorbisenc for ScummVM tools.

libtheora

You will need to use the "libtheora_static" solution.

Note: The static solution can be bugged and produce a library named "libtheora.lib" instead of "libtheora_static.lib". You will need to fix the target name in the project settings.

libmad

You can use the "libmad" solution.

Note for x64: When you want to build a x64 library for libmad you will need to create your own x64 config for it. You can do so by easy conversion of the existing libmad solution files for x86. For Release mode you will also need to edit the preprocessor definitons via: Properties -> Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> Preprocessor -> Preprocessor Definitions: there you will need to replace "FPM_INTEL" with "FPM_64BIT".

You will also need to apply the following patch to mad.h:

FLAC

Open the FLAC solution and build "libFLAC_static" and "win_utf8_io_static".

libfaad

We used the following patch when compiling libfaad to adjust for changes in the MSVC runtime:
