SDL is written in C, works natively with C++, and there are bindings available for several other languages, including C# and Python. SDL 2.0 which is the newest development is distributed under the zlib license. This license allows you to use SDL freely in any software.

All Libraries can be found in this SDL 2.0.14 package for MorphOS with all SDK files. It lets you run lots of games done with the SDL2 libraries.

SDL2 ports for MorphOS

Here are some of the SDL2 games that you can download to MorphOS. There are much more but here are two that I have tested that works nicely.

OpenTTD SDL2 port for MorphOS

So, where can you find SDL2 programs for MorphOS?

On MorphOS, the most recent game port of OpenTTD you can find on MorphOS-Storage here is using SDL2. You can either play it in a window or in fullscreen. You can join servers or just play it for yourself.

OpenTTD is based on the original Transport Tycoon Deluxe game that was released way back. In OpenTTD the game adds NewGRFs which are assets that the community can make. You can either download them from the web or from within the game itself. The MorphOS version also supports this function. Also, there are several enhancements to the game giving it TRAMS.

Cannonball SDL2 port for MorphOS

If you want to have the authentic OutRun arcade experience on MorphOS, then this SDL2 port of Cannonball engine for MorphOS is a must download tip for you.

There is also more software to be found out there but these two worthy MorphOS ports are two nice examples of what SDL2 is capable of getting ported. You can get the latest MorphOS release of this PowerPC-based operating system here. Get your PowerPC MorphOS capable hardware up to date with this SDL update.
