This is the Simple DirectMedia Layer, a general API that provides low
level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL,
and 2D framebuffer across multiple platforms.

This code is a compatibility layer; it provides a binary-compatible API for
programs written against SDL 1.2, but it uses SDL 2.0 behind the scenes. If
you are writing new code, please target SDL 2.0 directly and do not use this
layer.

If you absolutely must have the real SDL 1.2 ("SDL 1.2 Classic"), please use
the source tree at https://github.com/libsdl-org/SDL-1.2, which occasionally
gets bug fixes but no formal release. But we strongly encourage you not to do
that.

  • dosbox keyboard layout issues

    dosbox keyboard layout issues

    dosbox-0.74 on CentOS-6.10 / i686.

    With 'normal' SDL-1.2, dosbox doesn't respect my keyboard layout (which is Turkish-F) and behave as is I were using US layout.

    With sdl12-compat (latest git master) talking to SDL2-latest git master, it does use my keyboard layout but not fully correctly:

    • The key next to left-shift should report <, > or | (plain, with shift, with AltGr) but it prints \, | or none: all behaving like US-layout.

    • The key next to right shift should report , or ; (plain or shift), but it prints , (which is good) or < (bad: US-layout).

    • The key left to it should report . or :, but it prints . (good) or > (bad: US-layout).

    • Similar stuff with the keys on the numbers' row -- e.g. the key below Esc prints nothing, ...

  • cdrom code

    cdrom code

    We have stubs for cdrom code in sdl12-compat.

    Should we import the code from SDL-1.2? If we ever do that, would there be licence issues (can any of the authors still be reached, etc)?

    If we'll keep the stubs, close this.

  • Misc. issues affecting Loki port of Civilization: Call to Power

    Misc. issues affecting Loki port of Civilization: Call to Power

    [Just dropping my notes about this here: I may split things up and/or fix them if I get some time…]

    There are a large number of issues with Civilization: Call to Power v1.2a (it being an ancient SDL 1.1 game with a bunch of glibc/libstdc++ incompatibilities). Getting it to run even with real SDL 1.2 on a modern system (i.e., with modern glibc, etc, dynamically linked) is a chore, involving a lot of hex editing and patching. See: https://gist.github.com/sulix/09f059c468fcb58eefbca8ef46006ccb

    That being said, while it does crash occasionally regardless, it does work considerably better with the real SDL 1.2 than with sdl12-compat. Maybe some of the issues could affect other games as well:

    • [X] SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD: CivCTP uses this, and doesn't often call SDL_PumpEvents() otherwise. Hacked around by calling SDL_PumpEvents() from within SDL_PeepEvents(). There may need to be more work on it to fix the next issue, though…
    • [x] Multithreaded SDL_UpdateRects(): CivCTP calls SDL_UpdateRects() from two different threads, only one of which is the original thread. Under wayland (and nvidia+x11), this results in eglMakeCurrent failing in the renderer, and the texture locking/reupload failing a lot of the time (mouse cursor only visible sometimes, YUV overlays show up green, etc). It might be contributing to the random crashing in the renderer/Mesa on X11/Intel, too. Maybe we should keep a shadow surface in local memory (without needing to call into GL to lock it each call), and then defer the actual updates to present, which we can defer to the main thread? Though that might not work, as the "main" thread might not be doing any SDL calls at all during some parts of the game…
    • [x] Stack realignment: CivCTP's stacks are 4-byte aligned. Most distros are built with 16-byte aligned stacks to use SSE. Use __attribute__((force_align_arg_pointer)) to realign stacks in sdl12-compat to bridge this gap.
    • [x] CD audio / game audio device re-opening: The format conversion between the 22050/mono/8bit and 44100/stereo/16bit big-endian when mixing CD audio and SDL audio is broken if the (real) device is closed/re-opened to pick a better common format. Forcing sdl12-compat to always open the real device at 44100/stereo/16bit works around this, but there's clearly a real bug here.
    • [x] SDL_FreeYUVOverlay() should reset QueuedDisplayOverlay12 = NULL;: I don't think this is the cause of any of the issues, but seems like it's a real bug.
    • [X] X11 Usage: CivCTP calls XNextEvent, XSync, XGetWindowAttributes, XFree, XInternAtom, XSendEvent and XQueryPointer. This doesn't seem to cause any issues, though, even under Wayland?

    FIXME cleanup

    There are a bunch of FIXME()s that it'd be nice to get to: even if we don't get to fix them, it'd be nice to have some of them only trigger when they're more likely to indicate an actual problem with the running application. Now that FIXMEs are disabled by default, it's not as confusing as it could be, though.

    A few notes:

    1. CloseSDL20Library() for _WINDOWS has an extra open bracket that causes compile errors.
    2. On MinGW, _WINDOWS is not defined, causing the #error to trigger.
    3. stdio.h needs to be #included for stderr.
    4. stdlib.h needs to be #included to avoid an implicit declaration warning for abort().
    5. On MinGW, SDL20_CreateMutex and SDL20_CreateSemaphore are undefined for some reason. As a quick fix, I changed them to SDL20_SYM from SDL20_SYM_PASSTHROUGH in SDL20_syms.h and created SDL_CreateMutex and SDL_CreateSemaphore functions in SDL12_compat.c to simply call them.

    GBM+GLES?

    Last I tested this on my Rockchip RK3328 using an application compiled for GBM and GLES2. I dropped this in place of the SDL1.2 library, the application crashed as it was initializing it's graphics stack. It was months ago so wanted to check if this was a known issue and has since been resolved or if I should plan to get logs for a future issue report. Thanks in advance!

    This facilitates SDL1.2 application to be used with SDL2 loadable plugins (DLL/lib.so/dylib) that can render into main window. In an ideal world that said SDL1.2 application should have been ported to SDL2 to be able to use SDL2 plugins. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Plumbing existing SDL1.2 SDL_GetWMInfo() to allow retrieval of SDL_Window enables that said SDL1.2 application to use SDL2 plugins with the least effort.

  • SDL OpenGL header license is non-free (SGI Free B v1.1)

    SDL OpenGL header license is non-free (SGI Free B v1.1)

    During a review, it was discovered that there is some code that's listed under the terms of the SGI Free B v1.1 license:

    https://github.com/libsdl-org/sdl12-compat/blob/c0504eb42c7cabc23c6b4a16f5915ee49962ddff/include/SDL/SDL_opengl.h#L1-L30

    This license is non-free, but it's easy enough to fix as the license has a clause to allow upgrading to the SGI Free B v2.0 license (which is effectively MIT).

    Can the license terms be updated accordingly?

    grafx2: BadWindow when running on xorg (fine on wayland)

    User reported that grafx2 would no longer start at all on Fedora 37, but only on xorg (works fine on wayland). Confirmed locally.

    Passing SDL12COMPAT_ALLOW_SYSWM=0 quirk resolves the crash, but I was not sure if it would be appropriate to add grafx2 to the list of binaries needing this value or if there was a more appropriate code fix for grafx2 (it is FOSS).

  • Alpha Centauri - Animation performance issue

    Alpha Centauri - Animation performance issue

    Alpha Centauri used to be provided with a native engine developed by Loki, that can still be used with ./play.it (using the game build sold on GOG as a basis): https://www.dotslashplay.it/en/games/alpha-centauri

    One of the differences I noticed when using the sdl12-compat wrapper instead of real SDL 1.2 is that the initial animation of the pod landing is very sluggish, while it is smooth with the old SDL 1.2 library.

    Since this would require access to a commercial game for investigating the issue, I would be OK to buy a gift code to someone willing to work on this issue but does not own a copy of the game yet.

    I am of course willing to provide more information, but since I’m quite new to anything related to SDL I would need step-by-step instructions on how to debug the issue.

Releases(release-1.2.60)
  • release-1.2.60(Oct 24, 2022)

    sdl12-compat 1.2.60

    What is this?

    This is the release of version 1.2.60 of sdl12-compat. This is an official, stable release, and everyone is encouraged to upgrade. This release remains API and ABI compatible with previous releases of sdl12-compat (and, of course, with previous releases of classic SDL 1.2, as well).

    TESTING IS STILL WELCOME FOR FUTURE RELEASES.

    A list of known SDL 1.2 apps is here. Some tips on testing are in HOW_TO_TEST_GAMES.md. Please jump in and try things!

    What works now?

    Some apps and games that have started working since the last stable (1.2.56) release:

    • Civilization: Call To Power (yes, the 23-year-old binaries from Loki!)
    • OpenXcom (again!)
    • tucnak (again!)
    • Tatan
    • Out of Order
    • Scorched3d
    • Rock Dodger
    • Phlipple
    • Pachi el Marciano
    • Barrage
    • Battle Tanks
    • Bump Racer
    • crrcsim
    • The Legend of Edgar
    • Frogatto
    • Advanced Strategic Command
    • Bloboats
    • Burgerspace
    • Amoebax
    • Many, many others!

    Significant changes since 1.2.56

    • macOS apps built with sdl12-compat's headers are now binary compatible with classic SDL 1.2.
    • Added SDL12COMPAT_MAX_VIDMODE hint to stop apps that misbehave at high resolutions they never imagined.
    • Thread safety fixes to rendering. (#230)
    • Fix mouse coordinates when moving into a scaled window's letterboxing.
    • We no longer provide 24-bit screen surfaces (only 16 or 32, which matches SDL 1.2 better).
    • Better support for building sdl12-compat with OpenWatcom.
    • Fixed mousewheel events always reporting a mouse position of 0,0.
    • Several CMake fixes.
    • Fixed potential crash on startup.
    • Deal with apps that expect to have either a "windib" or "directx" 1.2 video backend on Windows.
    • Updated dr_mp3 to a later revision, for faking CD-ROM audio with a directory full of MP3s.
    • SDL_MixAudio works correctly now when sdl12-compat is faking the audio format (#228)
    • SDL_VideoModeOK no longer demands exact resolutions to function, like SDL 1.2. (#228)
    • SDL_OpenAudio inits the audio subsystem if required, like SDL 1.2 (#228)
    • Several fixes to destination alpha (#230, #244)
    • Don't send SDL_VIDEOEXPOSE duing SDL_SetVideoMode (#229)
    • Fixed virtual CD Audio using wrong end position on tracks.
    • SDL_EnableKeyRepeat now matches 1.2 behavior better (#251)
    • Check for specific X11 symbols in the process at startup and force SDL2 to use X11 if so (fixes startup failures on Wayland).
    • Better handling of apps that create surfaces with bogus formats (#257, #260)
    • Don't lose colorkey state when calling SDL_DisplayFormat or SDL_ConvertSurface (#250)
    • Better handling of the dirty-rectangle style of screen refreshing (#253, #176)
    • Other fixes and improvements.

    Thanks!

    Thank you to Ozkan Sezer, David Gow, Sam Lantinga, Joshua Root, Simon McVittie, Anonymous Maarten, and Cameron Cawley for their hard work on this release, and many others that tested and contributed in ways not visible in the revision history!

    Double-extra-special thank you to Simon McVittie, who tested sdl12-compat against every SDL 1.2 game packaged for Debian for this release! It was a herculean effort that generated a huge piles of really good fixes to the library!

  • prerelease-1.2.58(Oct 1, 2022)

    sdl12-compat 1.2.58 PRERELEASE

    What is this?

    This is a PRERELEASE version of sdl12-compat. If everything looks good, we'll ship this as 1.2.60, so you have an even number and no chance you're still on a prerelease or development version.

    PLEASE TEST THIS.

    Significant changes since the 1.2.52 release

    • All FIXMEs in the entire project have been resolved! (#143)
    • On x86 Linux, all entry points force the stack to align to 16 bytes, which lets really old binaries call into sdl12-compat without crashing.
    • Added a SDL12COMPAT_GetWindow() entry point, for 1.2 apps that know about sdl12-compat and want the SDL2 SDL_Window pointer, which can aid in apps transitioning to SDL2, etc. (#186)

    • SDL_GetWMInfo() no longer asserts if used on Wayland.
    • SDL_WM_SetIcon() no longer crashes on NULL icons, to match SDL-1.2. (#208)

    • SDL_EnableKeyRepeat now matches SDL 1.2's behavior. (#143)
    • SDL_Init/SDL_Quit pairing now matches SDL 1.2's behavior. (#143)

    • Lots of keyboard input fixes (#143, #187)
    • SDL_RemoveTimer now doesn't crash with bogus pointers, matching SDL 1.2.
    • Fixed rendering of 24-bit screen surfaces. (#183, #190, #199)
    • Updated dr_mp3 with various MP3 decoding fixes, for virtual CD audio.
    • Fixed building for ARM64 with Microsoft Visual C.
    • Now builds and runs on NetBSD and probably other non-Linux Unixes.

    • Several improvements to YUV overlay support (#164, #176, #143, #193, etc)
    • SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD support is now simulated; there's no actual thread.
    • Documentation improvements! (#173, #174, #197, #198, #188)
    • Several fixes for Awesomenauts, which now works great! (#168)
    • Implemented a "quirks" system to automatically adjust for known apps that need a little compatibility help.
    • Apps doing a "borderless fullscreen window" now convert to FULLSCREEN_DESKTOP (#168)
    • Fixed SDL_Surface refcounting.
    • SDL_GetWMInfo now works when SDL_SetVideoMode() hasn't been called. (#163)
    • "testthread.c" is now spelled correctly (#172)
