How do I building bsnes v107.1 on macOS, please ? I am able to building higan the latest one just fine.

bsnes is the one one I want to build for macOS for SNES/SFC only. The instruction there isn't clear. Help ?

How are you building higan? What goes wrong when you try to build bsnes?

After git clone link and I just type cd higan_repo/higan and type make.. Successfully.

BSNES 107.1 is different and it's bsnes v107.1 (source code).

I unzip it and open it and I drag and drop Higan after type cd in terminal and press return then type make.. everything is fine.

and I do the same for icarus. I got an error of the lists

I guess I ignored icarus and use BSNES instead.. I got an error also: BSNES quit unexpectedly

Am I doing something wrong ?

bsnes uses a built-in copy of icarus, not the standalone version, so you don't need to build it separately.

I don't know anything about the "quit unexpectedly" error, though.

Ahh, I understand.

So do you know how to build it for macOS? bsnes I mean.

tl;dr: apply this change to fix the startup crash. UI is still pretty busted, unfortunately. :/

DISCLAIMER: Fix may be completely wrong, I don't actually know what I'm doing. Worst case it leaks some memory now, which is still better than a crash, I guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you @Sintendo.

@Screwtape

I am glad to hear that. Should you report to byuu about that ? For macOS users, I mean.

Anybody ? It works for Windows but crashes on macOS. Something's not right here.

It seems the number of people with both macOS C++ development experience and SNES emulation interest is very close to zero, at least around here.

Maybe you could look on a macOS emulation forum?

One big reason is that macOS no longer supports OpenGL, which... Well... Is the de-facto graphics API used in most emulators. The increasing costs of using Mantle over Vulkan is really biting Apple in the ass, big time.

But who cares about supporting standard APIs when you have < 10% of the market and all the profits in the world, amirite?

Maybe it can be helpful. Where is that, may I ask ?

I've updated my bsnes-v107-macos-fixes branch to the latest v107r3 beta release. In addition to the previous change that fixed a startup crash, I've fixed the UI being scaled twice.

Here's all the changes so far:

hiro/cocoa: don't overrelease canvas surface
hiro/cocoa: stop scaling the UI twice

There's still plenty of remaining issues, but at least it's enough to start a game:

My changes are on top of v107r3. If that's the exact commit you've checked out, you just compiled vanilla v107r3 without any of my changes.

Try this:
git clone --single-branch --branch bsnes-v107-macos-fixes https://gitlab.com/Sintendo/higan.git

Yes. It works! I hope you improve further. Keep up the good work.
