    Yes, I know about Xcode. I already have it. High v101 just released for Windows. I am trying to compiling Higan v101 on Mac.

    That's a problem with moving stuff: I think you have to manually delete them from the front page.

    I don't know how you'd go about compiling it, but if there's not any particular reason you need this specific emulator you can install OpenEmu. It's an all-in-one wrapper for many emulators that comes with a ROM library that downloads box art and you can select between different cores. I really like it.

    Its core is apparently already used with OpenEmu.

    Oh I'm sorry. If I knew how to compile with Xcode I'd help more. :\

    Just talked with Higan developer and his people. Here:

    Everything *may* be good for v102 if the above changes get merged by byuu before then. He has a problem with Mac code. So I guess I will have to wait for v102.

    By the way, DavidR099.. A step by step tutorial will be nice from you until v102 is release.

    I didn't say I will succeed I wanted to try... couldn't you use wine or even better WineBottler so you can convert it into a mac app?

    That doesn't convert it into a native OS X application. It would still use Windows calls and APIs, which is not what one wants when it comes to emulation.

    They did and it didn't succeed. Higan developer and his people found the problem and will release v102 soon. So don't waste your time. Again, if you want then go to bsnes site and download the source. :)

    Yes, I did try Wineskin and it won't run this emulator at all. I have no problem with any emulators using Wineskin and this one is the problem. I rather to have a small file since Wineskin can convert them into a larger file than emulator actually size file.

    I do not know how much you want to use Higan but you could add a very small Linux boot to your laptop to use it, although its a hassle it could work if you are that desperate.
