Kitchen Sink Update Redux

Post by WinterMute » Mon May 14, 2018 3:45 pm

Now we're using pacman to manage components of the devkitPro SDKs we have a lot more flexibility about releases although it does mean getting everything we currently maintain packaged up and uploaded. This has meant rather a lot of beavering away behind the scenes cleaning things up and producing the packages and it also means we have a fair number of releases today and some more in the not too distant future.

Moving forward we'll be reducing the current devkitPro Updater to an app that installs msys2 with the extra devkitPro repositories and we will no longer be maintaining the perl scripts, preferring instead to concentrate on the pacman packages.

Binaries of pacman for OSX and debian based systems can be found at https://github.com/devkitPro/pacman/releases/latest along with some basic instructions for using pacman and setting up the repositories on systems that already use pacman.

Without further ado we present for your delectation & delight.

citro2d
Library for drawing 2D graphics using the Nintendo 3DS's PICA200 GPU.

This library contains optimized routines that allow 3DS homebrew developers to develop applications that take full advantage of the GPU to draw 2D graphics. The routines in this library have been carefully designed and optimized for the purpose of removing bottlenecks and allowing higher GPU throughput.

citro2d uses citro3d under the hood to talk to the GPU. It is possible to use citro2d on its own, or use it alongside citro3d to draw mixed 2D and 3D content.

Features:
  • Lightweight and straightforward API
  • Full doxygen documentation
  • Drawing on any surface (C3D_RenderTarget)
  • Drawing images and sprites (the latter contain state whereas the former don't)
  • Drawing text using the system font
  • Spritesheet/texture atlas support using tex3ds
  • Scaling, flipping, rotation
  • Drawing untextured triangles and rectangles
  • Per-vertex tinting with configurable blend factor (additive color blending with user specified colors)
  • Flexible and configurable gradients
  • Full-screen fade-out/fade-in transitions (to any color)
  • Concurrent usage of citro2d and citro3d
tex3ds 1.0.0
  • New tool written by mtheall for 3ds texture processing.
3ds examples 20180513
  • Updated for latest libctru/citro3d.
  • Additional citro2d examples.
ndstool 2.1.1
  • Compile with mingw
  • Ensure arm7 offset beyond 0x8000

  • Use correct DSi 012h and 01Ch header values
  • Pad out ROM before calculating SHA1-HMAC
  • Add options for changing DSi "access control" and "application flags"
  • ensure sufficient data to cover full size banner
general-tools 1.0.2
  • Improvements to bin2s to allow use on OSX.
libogc 1.8.18

I can't update devkitARM to release 48 with pacman.
If that's not the way to do it, then what is the proper way to do so?

We'll need some more details in order to help.

How are you trying to update and what error are you getting?

When I run pacman -F

CMD gives me this:
warning: database file for 'msys' does not exist
warning: database file for 'dkp-libs' does not exist
warning: database file for 'dkp-windows' does not exist

When I run pacman -Syu
It updates anything but devkitARM.

-F by itself doesn't do anything useful & has no bearing on installing anything.

It updates anything but devkitARM.
What's the output of pacman -Sl?


edit: sorry, didn't see this when I replied.

The problem was that I was using -F and it gave me this:
warning: database file for 'msys' does not exist
warning: database file for 'dkp-libs' does not exist
warning: database file for 'dkp-windows' does not exist
