PPSSPP does not launch with macOS 10.14 & some machines - Piyomaru - 05-17-2019 05:58 AM

I got new MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports) it runs with macOS 10.14.5.

On this environment, PPSSPP (v1.6.3-456-g6d0ed4ad0) does not launch.

On other hand, another MacBook Pro (15-inch 2012, with discreet GPU) macOS 10.14.5 can launch PPSSPP (v1.6.3-456-g6d0ed4ad0).

I found that my new MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports) can launch PPSSPP with external eGPU (ATI Radeon 56), but normal configuration can not launch.

Hmm...

I do not have a fix for you but if playing on the new macbook is a must then you could download an android emulator and then ppsspp onto that.

I found the condition PPSSPP launch on MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports).

The key was the external non-retina display. Not the eGPU.

MacBook Pro +External (Non-Retina display): OK
MacBook Pro (Internal Retina Display) : NG / OK (Once PPSSPP launched with external non-retina display, PPSSPP launch for a while. But reboot the MacBook Pro, PPSSPP can not launch without external non-retina display)
