Help opening Bobblicious (NES Bubble Bobble Mac editor)
« on: February 04, 2021, 07:02:51 pm »
I recently downloaded the Mac NES Bubble Bobble editor in an attempt to fix some problems the other gave me, but since I don't know how to operate a Mac, I have no idea how to open the editor with the .nes file inside to work on it.

Any help?

Links are usually helpful.

What have you done so far?  Do you have a Mac?

There are emulators and virtual machines that will run OS X on a PC, but I haven't messed with them much.

I have a friend who let me borrow her Mac to use for this project. I downloaded Bobblicious and the file can open, but I don't know how to insert the .nes file into the program to begin editing. The screen I currently get is just blank, and I can't mess or do anything (probably because there's no file inserted).

If I had to take a wild guess, what if you drag the .nes file on top of the icon for Bobblicious?

You can also probably try running the app from the Console.

I've tried dragging the .nes file into the program when it's open, but that does nothing. I haven't tried dragging it ontop of the icon itself, so I'm not sure if that'll work.

As for running the app from the Console, I don't know how I can do that.

I am not a regular OS X user, but I understand it works much the same as the Command Prompt in Windows, or the Terminal in Linux. There should be ample guidance available via Google.

I've tried both of those options, but nothing seems to work.

Update: I've got it working now. Once the program is open you go to the menu at the top (which I wasn't aware of before) and open the rom through that, or do Cmd+O.
