Welcome to the FamiStudio GitHub page
This is the GitHub page of FamiStudio, which is intended for people wanting to view/download the source code or report bug fixes.
For any questions, you can reach me at [email protected].
All releases are available in the Releases section. If you are on Windows, simply download and run the .MSI installer and a shortcut to FamiStudio will be placed in your Start menu.
The tools needed to compile are:
- Visual Studio 2017 on Windows
- Visual Studio 2019 for Mac, on MacOS
- MonoDevelop on Linux, I use 7.8.4 (build 2) (the Linux version is not usable, but it should compile, launch and play a song)
FamiStudio is composed of a few projects:
- The main FamiStudio application is written in C#.
- NesSndEmu & NotSoFatso are C++ DLLs and are provided as binaries since they rarely change. In you plan to recompile them, you will need to install C++ support in Visual Studio. On MacOS and Linux, there is a small build shell script included.
- The Setup project (Windows-only) is built using the "Microsoft Visual Studio Installer Projects" extension which can be installed from Visual Studio in the "Extensions and Updates" menu.
The C# application is built on top of SharpDX 4.2.0 on Windows and OpenTK on Mac/Linux. Visual Studio will install the required packages automatically when building the project. To manually fetch the packages, run
msbuild /t:Restore on the project from the Visual Studio Developer Command Prompt.
