November 22, 2017macOS OpenEmu ISOs gaming
OpenEmu is a very well-written emulator for macOS, but correctly installing cue files for multidisc games can be maddening. Although OpenEmu’s instructions for doing so are very clear there are a ton of steps and it’s easy to make a mistake. Below is basically a delete-everything-and-start-over quick start that will get you on the road to gamerzville.
If you’ve attempted the OpenEmu m3u instructions for a multidisc game and it isn’t working then find your base install for the important OpenEmu stuff which is going to be somewhere around:
~/Library/Application Support/OpenEmu/Games\ Library/roms
At the time of this writing I am using macOS Sierra 10.12.6. Your install location may be in a slightly different place so Google as needed. Anyway there are two important directories here: Sony Playstation and unsorted.
jonas@jonas ~ $ ls -la Library/Application\ Support/OpenEmu/Game\ Library/roms/ total 0 drwxr-xr-x 7 devbox 8618026 238 Oct 15 16:41 . drwxr-xr-x 7 devbox 8618026 238 Oct 15 15:51 .. drwxr-xr-x 2 devbox 8618026 68 Oct 15 15:47 Automatically Import drwxr-xr-x 3 devbox 8618026 102 Oct 15 15:51 Sega Genesis drwxr-xr-x 7 devbox 8618026 238 Oct 15 18:14 Sony PlayStation drwxr-xr-x 3 devbox 8618026 102 Oct 15 16:03 Super Nintendo (SNES) drwxr-xr-x 2 devbox 8618026 68 Oct 15 18:14 unsorted
rm everything in these two directories and then follow OpenEmu’s instructions for handling a “Require m3u file missing” error. You’ll be gaming in no time!
