Cannot run citra at all on mac os:
Everytime i run the citra-qt file it automatically opens a text file with things that doesnt make much sense. I am no pro coder but shouldnt it run straight away so that i can choose the decrypted roms.
- Operating System: MAC OS 10.13
- CPU: core i7
- GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6750M
- Citra Version (found in title bar): Nightly Build - afb1012
- Game: all
- 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
Does it also happen on the latest Nightly or Canary?
yes it does , the emulator doesnt even start. in any build i download then copy paste on the application folder
or play it straight from the unzipped file . Or am i doing the whole thing wrong ??
Are you sure that you’re running the citra-qt.app file? The screenshot shows that citra-qt-bin is open.
yes i am running the lemon app sign
What did you do ? I am running the latest build on MAC OS 10.12.6 and it’s working just fine. I wont update to 10.13 until anything is absolutely sure that nothing is bug or something. I will update it and see if it’s working but right now I am not update it yet.
you have the default file type handler for extension-less files set to open them with a text editor. the
citra-qt.app that you are double clicking on calls a shell program that will call
citra-qt-bin and your mac is deciding that it should open the actual executable file with a text editor based on your default handler.
i just double clicked on it. doesnt work
how do i change my handler ? please help step by step so that i can get it to work
Uncle Google ought to know how to change handler for other programs which could also apply to Citra :>
if uncle google was effective in this case i wouldnt have opened a support query , but thanks for your advise anyway
To everyone playing on the macbook, what frame rates do you get? Im running citra on the air early 2015 and i get around 25-30 fps on oras. any way to improve?
i get various frame rates, it changes with each part of the game.
I had the same issue and here’s how I fixed it:
- Right click on the citra-qt.app file and select “Show Package Contents”
- Find the files citra-qt and citra-qt-bin in Contents ▸ Frameworks ▸ MacOS
- You want those files to open with Terminal instead of TextEdit. So for each file do right click ▸ Get Info ▸ Open With ▸ Terminal.
After you do this, try opening the citra-qt.app again and everything should work as expected.
