Cube World Compatibility DLLs for Win7_64.

This is collection of DLLs to fix compatibility for Windows 7 in Cube World.

Because XAudio2.8 requires Windows 8+, this replaces XAudio with FAudio, an open-source XAudio reimplementation that works across multiple operating system by using SDL2.

If you like this project, please consider sponsoring/supporting FAudio and it's creator flibitijibibo.


  1. Head over to the releases page and download the latest zip file.
  2. Extract the .dll files to your cube world directory, next to your cubeworld.exe.


  • v1.1: Update FAudio to new version to fix the crash on exit. (Thanks to @flibitijibibo)
  • v1.0: Initial release

Known Issues

  • As of v1.1, there are no currently known issues.

Where did these come from?

These DLL's are from the following sources:

  • FAudio.dll & XAudio2_8.dll -> I built a win64 release build of FAudio, licensed under zlib. At commit 5fc2311f23.

  • SDL2.dll -> A win64 release build of SDL2, licensed under zlib. Version 2.0.10.

  • XInput1_4.dll -> The original DirectInput XInput1_3.dll file from Microsoft, but renamed to XInput1_4.dll. ( Cube World only uses the XInputGetState export so this works.)
