    I downloaded the source from here and installed the Windows version of CMake from here. I started CMake gui and got this:

    I don't know how to proceed further. I put the path to the mgba source code in the "Where is the source code" field and created a /bin directory for the "Where to build the binaries" field. Then I clicked generate but got an error. Anyone have step-by-step instructions for me please?

    You know you can download compiled versions from the website

    https://mgba.io/downloads.html

    and under development you can download compiled versions of the recent github

    I know but I want to compile my own builds with gfxSet3D(true); to increase the image quality of the topscreen.
