Building from Source


You'll need recent versions of Rust and Cargo installed. The game will compile on the latest stable version. Get Rust

On Linux, you will need the ALSA development files installed for audio support. On Debian / Ubuntu, apt-get install libasound2-dev. On Red Hat / Fedora, yum install alsa-lib-devel.

On Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) running Ubuntu, run sudo apt install build-essential libasound2-dev pkg-config.


  1. Clone the git repository.
  2. cargo build --release
  3. Run the game with cargo run --release
  4. On first run, config.yml is created in your home directory. This file may be edited with your preferences. It is also written to when using the in game options menu, however changes you have made manually should generally be preserved.
  5. The Sulis User Folder location:
  • Linux - $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.sulis/ (typically $HOME/.config/.sulis)
  • Windows -$HOME\My Documents\My Games\Sulis

Note that Running with release mode is recommended. The compilation process takes several minutes, but load time and performance in game are massively improved over a standard debug build.


If you encounter build errors on Linux, please check the Prerequisites section above first.

Please check the Issue Tracker for known bugs. You can create an issue. Please leave as much information as you can, including logs from your sulis user folder /log directory

Running the editor

  1. cd sulis_editor/
  2. cargo run --release
