icon ARM hardware support for drod games (0)  
Hello everyone,
I have an old post here in the forums asking ir drod couls Run on ARM hardware (namely Raspberry Pi).
From what i tested with https://github.com/EvidentlyCube/drod this engine, it won't compile for ARM.
Do you think this could be implemented? Recently i've been using the Raspberry Pi to game more than my work PC and drod games are a collection that is alwaysgood to get our Mind off work.
Thanks.

This could be necessary to maintain Mac compatibility when Apple switches from Intel to ARM.

If/when Apple makes that switch, one would hope that ARM support would be a simple checkbox in Xcode. If DROD for macOS is built with Xcode, that is.

I have GOG's DROD 1+2+3 https://www.gog.com/game/drod_1_2_3) for linux, so I was actually hoping compiling this engine for ARM, but to no avail.

I'm going to try getting the game to work with this: https://github.com/ptitSeb/box86
