I have a question as an AmigaOS rusted user: Where do I find the SDL files needed to run most of these games? Then, how do Install and where? Thank you.

@WeiXing3D

If you search for "directmedia" on OS4Depot, you can find the core libs:

http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=library/misc/sdl.lha
http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=library/misc/sdl2.lha

You can usually find the latest release candidates on Github:

https://github.com/AmigaPorts/SDL/releases

Often games are linked statically, in other words the SDL library is already in the binary.

But at least some of my own SDL2 ports (MilkyTracker, Super Methane Bros, ioquake3) use dynamic linking so it's best to install the libs. They go into SOBJS: directory.

@Templario

Thank you guys. I didn't know these drivers have their own installation scripts. It was easy thanks to you pointing me to where to find the files.

In terms of amigaos4, many games compiled statically (so SDL libs build-in), and there no need for any SDL files to be installed. Some of them through want .so version of SDL libs, and only in that case, you need those files other ones refer to.
