How to upload log file on Mac

Issue: So when it comes up with this warning how to upload a log file, i check the link however step 1 wont work on my mac.

System Information

  • Operating System: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013)
  • CPU: 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
  • Citra Version (found in title bar): 8f0a23b
  • Game: Super Smash 4 3ds
  • Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar):


Paste your entire console window log here.

In order to save a copy of the log, follow this guide: How to Upload the Log File

And the shift+right-click on this step wont work

you can do one of two things

  1. wait for the logging rewrite to go through which would log to disk as well (so you don’t have to do anything)
  2. right click the app and open the app as a folder. go deeper into the folder until you find the citra-qt file next to the citra-qt-bin file. you can edit the citra-qt file with a text editor and in there you should see
#!/usr/bin/env bash
cd "\`dirname "\$0"\`"
chmod +x citra-qt-bin
open citra-qt-bin --args "\[email protected]"

change the last line to be

open citra-qt-bin --args "\[email protected]" 2>~/citra-log.txt

then when you launch the citra app it should write to citra-log.txt instead inside your homefolder. (note i don’t have access to a mac any more so i can’t test it)

Thanks! got it solved

It’s not working for me :frowning:

I can’t help you if you don’t tell me what you tried and why it didn’t work.

jroweboy I don’t know how to open the app as a folder? Can u please show me? I really wanna play some games.

I can’t find :
#!/usr/bin/env bash
cd "`dirname “$0”`"
chmod +x citra-qt-bin
open citra-qt-bin --args “[email protected]

Can you help me ?

I did exactly what you said to do but, the same error keeps popping up :frowning:

I did, but it still not working ! There is exactly the same fatal error.

I just saw this one, I guess you don’t need help anymore. But the problem here is obvious:

  • Pokemon X and Y are poorly supported in Citra
  • You have to open a ROM (not zipped), not a zip file containing a savegame
  • Savegames must be extracted into the proper folders, see the wiki for more info
  • You don’t have the 3DS files dumped (shared-font etc.)
