Developer information

Building from source

This port of ScummVM to the Switch is based on SDL2. It uses the open source SDK provided by devkitPro.

To build ScummVM for Switch:

  • Update package database and install libraries (see here for an updated list)
sudo dkp-pacman -Sy
sudo dkp-pacman -S \
switch-sdl2 \
switch-libmad \
switch-libogg \
switch-libvorbis \
switch-flac \
switch-libtheora \
switch-libpng \
switch-libjpeg-turbo \
switch-zlib \
switch-freetype \
switch-sdl2_net \
switch-curl \
switch-libtimidity \
switch-pkg-config
  • Optional: To enable fluidsynth support, download and install the unofficial fluidsynth-lite switch port via
git clone https://github.com/rsn8887/fluidsynth-lite
cd fluidsynth-lite
make -f Makefile.nx
sudo -E make -f Makefile.nx install
  • Create a subdirectory somewhere outside the source folder for your ScummVM build and cd into it
  • Execute the command (once a curl-config script exists for devkitA64, the --disable-libcurl could be omitted)
../scummvm/configure --host=switch
  • Execute the command
make scummvm_switch.zip

Thanks
