To build SDL library for the PS2, make sure you have the latest PS2Dev status and run:

cmake -S. -Bbuild -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=$PS2DEV/ps2sdk/ps2dev.cmake
cmake --build build
cmake --install build


If you trying to debug a SDL app through ps2client you need to avoid the IOP reset, otherwise you will lose the connection with your computer. So to avoid the reset of the IOP CPU, you need to call to the macro SDL_PS2_SKIP_IOP_RESET();. It could be something similar as:



int main(int argc, char *argv[])

For a release binary is recommendable to reset the IOP always.

Remember to do a clean compilation every time you enable or disable the SDL_PS2_SKIP_IOP_RESET otherwise the change won't be reflected.
