Please help me to install retroarch on mac
« on: May 08, 2022, 01:35:21 AM »
Hello, after reading and trying everything i’m going crazy to get retroarch to run via am.
Everywhere it says that the arguments string should be:
 /applications/retroarch.app/contents/cores/“stella.lybretro”
But my cores are not there, i have them in:
/library/application support/retroarch/cores/“stella.lybretro”
Anyway both locations won’t work, i have as well the -L and [romfilename] commands.
The games run fine in retroarch.
Mame is working fine in am.
What should I have in command arguments?
Thank you in advance!

Maybe something like this
Code: [Select]
args                 -f -L /library/application support/retroarch/cores/stella.libretro "[romfilename]"

or this
Code: [Select]
args                 -f -L "/library/application support/retroarch/cores/stella.libretro" "[romfilename]"

Show your entire .cfg file, you might have other issues as well.

1) there are some case problems there…

2) the core has the wrong filename

3) you cant type space on a terminal window… the correct would be

Code: [Select]
$HOME/Library/Application\ Support/RetroArch/cores/stella_libretro.dylib "[romfilename]"
