fnaify 1.1-fbsd

created 2017-12-27 by Thomas Frohwein (thfr)

FreeBSD version 2018 by Mariusz Zaborski (oshogbo@)


Please notice that this is an unofficial fork of the fnity implemented by Thomas Frohwein.

The orginal source code:

The goal of this fork is to port the OpenBSD version of this script to FreeBSD.

For more details:


Script to get FNA-based games ready to run on {Free,Open}BSD

FNA is a reimplementation of the Microsoft XNA Game Studio 4.0 Refresh libraries. Thanks to the great work by Ethan Lee (flibitijibibo) games using FNA are highly portable and can even run on {Free,Open}BSD. Please refer to for more information about FNA


  • SDL_GetPlatform to recognize OS. {Free,Open}BSD's SDL2 upgrade to 2.0.7 achieves this by returning "Linux" until FNA patches to recognize *BSD platforms have been rolled out. You can check with sdl2plat which platform is returned by SDL_GetPlatform.
  • mono: package available for -current, but not for 6.2 or 6.3. However, a version of mono with a few bugs can likely be built from the ports tree, by removing the line starting with BROKEN
  • game-specific libraries, like theoraplay, mojoshader, ... fnaify should abort and tell you which libraries need to be installed if some of them can't be found.


fnaify [-v] [-h]

-h: display usage information -v: enable verbose output
