decomp-toolkit Project Template

If starting a new GameCube / Wii decompilation project, this repository can be used as a scaffold.

See decomp-toolkit for background on the concept and more information on the tooling used.




Projects using this structure:


  • Few external dependencies: Just python for the generator and ninja for the build system. See Dependencies.
  • Simple configuration: Everything lives in config.yml, symbols.txt, and splits.txt.
  • Multi-version support: Separate configurations for each game version, and a configure.py --version flag to switch between them.
  • Feature-rich analyzer: Many time-consuming tasks are automated, allowing you to focus on the decompilation itself. See Analyzer features.
  • REL support: RELs each have their own symbols.txt and splits.txt, and will automatically be built and linked against the main binary.
  • No manual assembly: decomp-toolkit handles splitting the DOL into relocatable objects based on the configuration. No game assets are committed to the repository.
  • Progress calculation and upload script for frogress.
  • Integration with objdiff for a diffing workflow.
  • (TODO) CI workflow template for GitHub Actions.
