Compiling Player for Nintendo Wii

For compiling EasyRPG Player for your Wii you will need devkitpro.

And you will need the following libraries:

  • SDL (>=1.2.10).
  • SDL_mixer (>=1.2.6) with support for WAV, MIDI, OGG and MP3.

Precompiled SDL-libs can be found on the website from SDL Wii.

  • libpng (>=1.2.8).
  • zlib (>=1.2.2).
  • freetype (>=2.4.3).

They can be found in the devkitpro portlibs.

  • iconv
  • pixman
  • expat

Recent versions can be found here:

You need to build liblcf as portlib:

cd liblcf
./configure --host=powerpc-eabi --prefix="$DEVKITPRO/portlibs/ppc" \
            --disable-shared --enable-static \
            CFLAGS="-g -O2 -Wall -DGEKKO -mcpu=750 -meabi -mhard-float"
make install

Once you have all dependencies above, change into the player/builds/wii folder and type 'make'. It will build a boot.dol that you can place on your sd card alongside meta.xml, icon.png and a game. That's all!

Notes about music playback (Ogg, Midi)

There can be some linker problems with SDL_mixer when ogg is enabled, either try to compile an ogg lib (and link against -lvorbisfile -lvorbis -lvorbisenc -logg) or recompile SDL_mixer without ogg support (remove -DOGG_MUSIC from the Makefile).

For midi you should also patch some lines in the sdl_mixer-timidity-folder (or you will have to put 20mb of "instruments" in the game root):

common.c:116: (add the lines)

config.h:173: (change the lines)
#define CONFIG_FILE "sd:/data/timidity/timidity.cfg
#define CONFIG_FILE_ETC "usb:/data/timidity/timidity.cfg
