ScummVM and Windows for ARM64

Post by carlo_bramini » Sat Jan 26, 2019 12:22 pm

Hello,
I was wondering what you think about releasing ScummVM for running natively on Windows 10 for ARM64.
This platform is known to be able to run also 32bit x86 code by using a software emulator, but often with poor performance, while a Snapdragon is able to reach much greater results when it executes native code.
In the same way of the 64-bit version for x86-64 Windows, everything in the codebase of ScummVM is ready, you just need to decide if you would like to host such executable in the download section or not. :wink:

Sincerely.

This would be a question for our Windows porters ... but there is support for ARM64 in https://mingw-w64.org/doku.php so quite possible to add a builder to buildbot and provide releases if we can get a porter who could test...
