Changing default location of FS-UAE folder in Mac OS

Hi guys. Title says it all. I want to be able to chose where the FS-UAE folder resides on my Mac. IS there a way to do this? It defaults to my Documents folder.

Thanks.

According to the docs:

Quote:
You can override this by putting the path to the desired base directory in a special config file. The config file will be read by both FS-UAE and FS-UAE Launcher if it exists:

- Windows: <LOCALAPPDATA>/FS-UAE/base-dir
- OS X: ~/Library/Preferences/fs-uae/base-dir
- Linux/other: ~/.config/fs-uae/base-dir

This file must be a simple text file with the (only) the full path to the desired base directory.

...
...

Alternatively, you can starting FS-UAE and/or FS-UAE Launcher with --base-dir=/path/to/desired/dir.

A final option to avoid all this is to simply use the portable version of FS-UAE. With a portable setup, both the application and data files are placed together in the same directory, and you can move this directory around at will, even between computers.
So either create that file, start FS-UAE with the --base-dir option, or use the portable version.

Thank for reply!

I tried this, no luck. I cannot find a portable version of the FS-UAE emulator.

I've created a new thread for FS-UAE & Launcher 3.1: https://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=108745. It contains instructions on how to enable portable mode.

Overriding base-dir also works on macOS, tested today. But I also published a new Launcher update which is a bit more flexible in this regard, please see: https://eab.abime.net/showthread.php...01&postcount=4
