I was not able to find the log file in my mac.
Not even searching for the file name.

Is there any way I can revert the install to an older version? The rom I was using doesn’t run on Nightly

Okay, so, apparently, there’s nobody willing to at least answer. Is anything else I can do to help the developer reach a fix? Is the answer not coming because it’s a mac issue? Should I just give up?

Well I didn’t asnwer because I’m not at all familiar with MacOS. The mac builds in general have bunches of weird stuff happening all the time, making diagnosing a problem nigh impossible for me.

Try downloading this citra-osx-20201004-1c8461f.tar.gz and unpack it, then inside the unpacked folder, create a folder called user in the same place that you can find citra-qt.
Now try running citra-qt.


It worked, even though this is the nightly, right?
Thank you.

I am having the same problem, and it is not working. Do I make the user folder in the unpacked folder, or in another folder?

In the unpacked folder
