Is it possible to target framebuffer instead of x?

Wondering because it would be great to be able to make games that can be played as “ports” through Raspberry pi/retropie or otherwise not have to start x.


Are you asking about Raspberry Pi, specifically, or working through some other system?

We should support Raspberry Pi builds, using fullscreen on the device (and not using X)

I don’t know what you mean by “working through some other system”. I just mean that runs on raspberry pi without x. How hard would it be to support raspberry pi in this way?

Our Raspberry Pi builds should work without using X, AFAIK, it uses an rpi system library
