Help compiling Genesis Plux GX to SD2SP2 use

Post by vsilvalopes » Mon Mar 09, 2020 1:35 pm

Hi!
I'm trying to compile Genesis Plus GX, to enable it to see SD2SP2.

I went to the Genesis Plus GX Github, and found this issue : https://github.com/ekeeke/Genesis-Plus-GX/issues/296
Basically, to be able to use SD2SP2, I need to compile the same code, using the last version of libogc.

So, I went, and installed Devkitpro on my Windows 10 professional.
Saw during the installation that it gets the latest libogc.

So, I've dowloaded the source code for Genesis Plux GX, and started the compile with

Code: Select all

make -f Makefile.gc
The compilation starts, but then stops with this error :

Code: Select all

C:/Users/vinicius.lopes/Downloads/Genesis-Plus-GX-master/gx/osd.h:20:10: fatal error: zlib.h: No such file or directory
I understand that the compiler, cannot find the zlib.h library that the code is needed to compile.
I also tried to setup DevkitPro on Ubuntu 18.04, but I hit the same error.

I'm not a developer, so I only have basic understanding on how to compile software using "make".

I would ask if someone could point me on how to compile Genesis Plus GX correctly.
Or, if someone already has a DOL supporting SD2SP2 and could send me, I will be glad!

I'm very new to the GameCube scene, but I'm loving it so far!
Moded my GameCube myself, and I'm using Swiss with XenoGC.

Thanks in advance!

Hi capzlk!

Tried it and worked like a charm!
Loaded a Genesis game and a Master System one, without any trouble!

The emulator was able to see the entire SD Card file structure as usual!

Thanks for this!

Don't see this as merged to the main repository, as this is not mentionned in the history on github… :?
DMG/MF OC, AGB/SC miniSD, NTR/NeoMK3, USG/flashme V8/SC miniSD
DOL001(EUR)/RGB/GCPlug/GBP/SD2SP2, RVL 001(EUR)/RGB/CMP/WiiSD

Zelda WW with Tingle Tuner in split screen was what the GC RF modulator was made for! (Video)

Yeah sorry, it was literally a quick hack on the master branch to get things building. It was on my work notebook and I've since switched jobs. I'm short on time but really, it's not hard for anyone with devkitcpp and c++ knowledge to get it up and running. Or make a PR for the original source for that matter.

Edit: i take it back. Winter mute decided to change the tool chain AGAIN. If anyone can bring me up to speed on how to properly install libs with pacman and then reference them in a make config I'd be happy to make another build and PR to the official repo. At the moment i can't until i figure that out.

These guys don't seem to care about documentation at all, only casually mentioning all prior documentation is now unusable :/

Welcome to trying to compile anything GameCube related when the toolchain updates in any way. They also deprecate older versions of it from being available most of the time.

That's when the wayback machine comes in handy! ;)
