You must have a 64-bit machine for building and running the project. Always run your system updater before building and make sure you have the latest video drivers for your card.



Ensure Python is in your PATH (C:\Python27\).

I recommend using Cmder for git and command line usage.


VS behaves oddly with the debug paths. Open the xenia project properties and set the 'Command' to $(SolutionDir)$(TargetPath) and the 'Working Directory' to $(SolutionDir)..\... You can specify flags and the file to run in the 'Command Arguments' field (or use --flagfile=flags.txt).

By default logs are written to a file with the name of the executable. You can override this with --log_file=log.txt.

If running under Visual Studio and you want to look at the JIT'ed code (available around 0xA0000000) you should pass --emit_source_annotations to get helpful spacers/movs in the disassembly.


Linux support is extremely experimental and presently incomplete.

The build script uses LLVM/Clang 3.8. GCC should also work, but is not easily swappable right now.

CodeLite is the IDE of choice and xb premake will spit out files for that. Make also works via xb build.

To get the latest Clang on an ubuntu system:

sudo -E apt-add-repository -y "ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test"
curl -sSL "" | sudo -E apt-key add -
echo "deb llvm-toolchain-precise main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null
sudo -E apt-get -yq update &>> ~/apt-get-update.log
sudo -E apt-get -yq --no-install-suggests --no-install-recommends --force-yes install clang-3.8 clang-format-3.8


To make life easier you can use --flagfile=myflags.txt to specify all arguments, including using --target=my.xex to pick an executable.
