PCSX2 Documentation/Contributing To-Do List
- Be patient
- Your contribution will gladly be reviewed but free time is an expensive resource
- Discuss your future contribution with us before coding it
- Let's avoid duplicate work! Besides, the specification could be clarified this way.
QA / Portability
- Port core thread to std::thread
- C11 aligned_alloc
- C++11 alignof/alignas syntax
- Replace volatile/lock-free queue with real C++ atomic
- [C++11 auto port](http://clang.llvm.org/extra/clang-modernize.html). Initial requirement: drop XP and support clang/llvm
- [Clean header include](https://github.com/include-what-you-use/include-what-you-use). Investigate.
- Address sanitizer (gcc or clang) and others sanitizer.
- Valgrind (not sure it can run PCSX2, maybe limit the scope to plugin)
- Reformat the core/plugin to a constant style with tool like astyle
- Support Windows/OSX in CMake
- check linux chapter ;) Various improvements are actually cross platform!
You're welcome to the [Linux contribution thread](http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Areas-of-interest-for-new-linux-developers) to have full details. Here is a handy list of features need implementation. Feel free to propose new ones.
House keeping and general compilation
- Clean up warnings
- Same as gcc flags but without the need of complete test.
- Clean up GCG flags
- Put default global flags in cmake/BuildParameters.cmake\\
- Try to use standard flags as much as possible (aka On). Extensive tests must be done to validate a flag update.
- Speed comparison clang/GCC
- Add missing/update copyright header
- LTO support => started by prudho
- PGO support
- Support XZ compressed ISOs
- Fix OpenGL. I would advice to compare dx trace vs OpenGL trace.
- Test/Fix GLES3.1 (it often breaks after GL update)
- Finish shader subroutine usage (+find a way to clean shader and avoid duplication)
- Finish buffer storage
- OSD => Finish port to Direct3D
- Needs a refresh to the latest standard
- Clean debian/copyright => debmake -k
Very long term features
Those features will require a lot of work, and an organized long-term effort.
- PS2 ROM reimplementation (wrongly named HLE bios)
- x86_64 port (x32 could yield better perf)
- Android X86 port
- Win/Linux ARM port
- OSX support
