Using RGBDS master

Using a package manager

Your package manager may have a master version of RGBDS available, such as Arch’s rgbds-git AUR package. There is no single way, you will have to look for it manually.

Building yourself

Build the source as usual, but replace step 1 with getting the master repo instead. The recommended way is to clone the repo (see GitHub’s help on it if you have trouble), but you can also download the repo as ZIP.

Then, follow the rest of the instructions to build from source.

Using our CI

RGBDS has continuous integration: as part of our testing process, each time a modification is made to the code, a server builds RGBDS for several platforms, and runs a battery of tests to ensure nothing was broken. The executables built during the process are made available on GitHub.

We only recommend doing this on Windows, as the Windows zips are stand-alone, but the others aren’t. You can still use them if you know what you’re doing, but we don’t recommend it.
