You need to run ldd against the binary:

Code: Select all

ldd $(command -v ecwolf) | grep SDL
If you get "not a dynamic executable" then there's likely a shell wrapper in between I would need to know the contents of to advise further:

Code: Select all

cat $(command -v ecwolf)
That said, since you don't know the answer off hand I'm assuming you're using the AUR package? That's built on an SDL 1.2 to 2.0 wrapper. I have no idea why since ECWolf has native SDL 2 support. The reason it builds with the SDL 1.2 API is for Windows 98 and PowerPC Mac support. You should reach out to the maintainer and let them know.

Yeah, I'm using the AUR package. Will do, thanks a lot. Great work on ECWolf

Does anyone know of a launcher for EC wolf? Like, one that lets me select which game I want without having to keep a copy of the executable in each Spear of Destiny episode folder? Something like ZDL or Simple Quake Launcher but for Wolfenstein engine games.

Tried using ecwolf with Wolfstone, and the Elite Hans, and both games show up multiple times in the launcher list. Is this expected behavior?

https://imgur.com/a/61bmeeJ

Found the config file. It looks like it looks for files multiple times in what turns out to be the same place - ".", "PROGDIR", and the explicit path where I have the executable (C:\various folders\Wolf3D\), and although in the end it's the same two .pk3 files each time, it counts them each as a separate install, but doesn't do this with the other Wolf3D files?

I would say that's a bug, but yeah should be mostly harmless since you can narrow your search path list.

Yeah, I've already edited the .cfg file. Just figured it was worth reporting. :)
