Has anyone ever tried to compile px68k?
It is an opensource SHARP X68000 Emulator availible for various platform

https://github.com/libretro/px68k-libretro

The X68000 was an home computer created by Sharp Corporation, first released in 1987 and pratically sold only in Japan.
Still, it was a very powerfull machine at the time and have a very good collection of games including many arcade perfect conversions

From what I read, you need first libretro, this where all the OS dependency is, then you add the AmigaOS equal of what is BeOS / Unix / Windows has here.

As I read it it’s designed to use share objects, I guess it need to use DLL’s in windows, not sure what the difference are, but it might have some built in flexibility.

«SHARP X68000» is more complex then the Amiga, I guess this might be way no Amiga emulator exists, but AmigaONE is more powerful then a normal Amiga, so maybe.

Basilisk uses UAE CPU core; it does not look like this one does.

@LiveForIt

I've found a version ported by ptitSeb (the same author of our GL4ES wrapper)

It use GLES 1.1 for display (Hardware scaling) but it also uses Texture Streaming

Still to see if it is endian safe too, as probably it could be the most problematic part for an eventual port to OS4

It looks like he not following the guidelines, see the X11 directory, if its port its best to follow the advice, it will make it easier keep it up to date later, I think.
