[solved] [WebGL] Compilation Error: SIMD is used, but not supported in WASM mode yet



I am trying to run tests/web/prepare_test_libs.py, I get the error:

RuntimeError: Compilation error:
Traceback (most recent call last):

AssertionError: SIMD is used, but not supported in WASM mode yet

I installed the WebGL backend using the following instructions.

Edit: it seems that asm.js is currently being replaced by emscripten in favor of webassembly.
Has someone managed to tun the web examples lately?


Passing option -s WASM=0 to emcc solved the problem. Some other options were also needed, so here is the full parameter:

options = ["-s", "WASM=0", "-s", "USE_GLFW=3", "-s", "USE_WEBGL2=1", "-lglfw"]

needed to be passed to emscripten.create_js in the test examples.


Great find, really helped me out, thanks!
